Casa dos Arcos (sleeps 8), Villa dos Arcos (sleeps 4) and Casita do Pintor (sleeps 2-4) 
West Algarve (Conservation Area)

This charming and unusual group of properties will suit any combination of guests from 2 to 16. Traditional village houses, carefully restored, they have great character, beautiful gardens and command dramatic views. 
Visitors are thus able to enjoy the unique combination of authentic village life, together with the comforts of a modern villa and pool normally found only in the development areas which have destroyed so much of the Algarve.  They offer that rare discovery - the best of both worlds.

The ancient village is in the conservation area, half a mile from completely unspoilt coastline, at the western end of the Algarve near Cape St Vincent. It is one hour's drive from Faro airport. For location map click here.

The Casa and the Villa may be rented independently. The two houses are adjacent, but not inter-connected. The Villa has a cottage in its grounds (Casita do Pintor) which is available as an option ; two or more families (or generations) wishing to go on holiday together but wanting a measure of independence may favour this arrangement. Large parties (eg. golfing parties) can be accommodated using all three properties (maximum number 16).

All the houses are attractively furnished in traditional Portuguese style and include bed linen, towels, and complimentary welcome pack with selection of food and wine. An English speaking baby sitter is available. To read comments by previous visitors click here.
