Great to have a holiday and still feel at home!

Casa da Mó, named after the valley wherein it is located, is completely created and set for a top family holiday.

It is a splendid and spacious 4-bedroom villa with private pool and garden where you won’t miss anything. HD-TVs, Game room and broadband WiFi.

Beautiful location in the hills near Faro city, the cosy Olhão and the historic Estoi.

The villa is at walking distance from the picturesque Pechão with small bars, restaurants and shops. The region is excellent for cycling and walking, by car you can reach the sandy beaches and tourist attractions in a quarter of an hour.

Even though you have a central location and everything is accessible within short distance you enjoy in and around the house of all privacy, the villa is at a small hill for you to have a panoramic view (and even a glimpse of the sea) but still cannot be seen yourself. Fully detached at 7000 M2 own terrain.

As we also have children ourselves the entire house has free broadband WiFi available.

The house includes 4 bedrooms with 8 mature beds, all with airco and 4 bathrooms provided with bathrooms with modern quality bathroom fixtures. There is a separate toilet on the ground floor. The qualitative layout is complete and timeless with Portuguese accents.

The game room has a cozy double sofa bed where children can sleep excellently. They probably want to stay here regularly, here they have game computers, an own flatscreen with all possible channels and an Internet PC.

In the kitchen you will find all facilities and kitchen appliances. The kitchen is directly adjacent living room and dining room and the lounge terrace.

From the living room and kitchen you can look over terraces, patios and the large crystal clear private pool. There is a moveable safety gate around the pool, especially for the small children.

The perfectly maintained garden offers you lawns, palm trees, olive trees, oleander and plenty Portuguese plants. Irragation has made the garden impressively green and flourishing. The garden, patios and terraces are also accessible from the two separate bedrooms on the ground floor.

The lounge terrace wth dining table includes a fixed stone barbecue where you can grill delicious meat, fish and other treats and this way enjoy the country life maximally.

The beautiful master bedroom has a very special vaulted ceiling of brick, typically Portuguese. Ensure to have the master bedroom itself, then you will also have access to a private roof garden! You can also enjoy a cool drink here of course with someone else while enjoying the sun and the view.

The splendid large private pool of 8.5 x 4.4 meter with stone stairs leading to the shallow part of 105 cm and the deep end of 185 cm. It’s a pool with salt water being maintained by the poolboy, you don’t have to mind it at all. Salt water is much more pleasing for your skin and eyes in comparison to traditional chlorinated water.

About Wiebe Barkey

Let’s introduce ourselves: Johan and Wiebe, with our company we have bought Casa da Mó. The ideal holiday villa on a beautiful location where you and your children will spend a lovely time. Pure luxury, comfort and relaxation in a splendid environment. Enjoying with capital E!

Wiebe Barkey purchased this villa in 2012

Why Wiebe Barkey chose Pechão

We really wanted to go to the Algarve. Portugal is friendly, has lovely weather, delicious food and can be easily reached.

At the beginning of our search we immediately encountered Casa da Mó. Love at first sight that even appeared to be more beautiful in real life. Fortunately we were able to buy Casa da Mó after which we started to embellish the house and garden further into the paradise we had in mind.

In the meantime this has all been completed and the house, the garden and the driveway are fuly to our liking. We hope you can picture and feel our love for the house when you stay there!

What makes this villa unique

Casa da Mó is a splendid holiday villa. You will stay in our villa. This means you can also use all facilities we use too. Lots of holiday houses have limited facilities to save costs. This is not the case for Casa da Mó, you will stay and enjoy the same way we do.

The location of Casa da Mó seems perfect to us. Near Faro and Olhão and by car nearly all villages, cities, beaches and attractions are quickly reachable through the central location. Most of the time you don’t need more than about fifteen minutes to reach your objective.

Excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was perfect for our group gathering of adults. As per the description the lovely villa was super clean, comfortable, ample space, fully functional and very well put together. We appreciated the good attention to detail with the interior and the beautiful outdoor spaces and gardens. We had all we needed to help our stay be enjoyable and Maria (the house caretaker) is a treasure. Would not hesitate to recommend this villa and we look forward to staying there again. Loved the local area and its easy accessibility to some great places and super handy for the airport. A great find and extra thanks to the owners, especially for their prompt and detailed communications.

Geweldige vakantie gehad! Het huis oversteeg alle verwachtingen, schoon, goed onderhouden en ongelooflijk mooi! Vooraf aan ons vertrek goed contact gehad met de eigenaar, niks is aan het toeval overgelaten. Hartelijk welkom geheten door de buurvrouw. Zeker een aanrader!

Geweldige villa, Sonos (WIFI) muziek systeem, zwembad, stenen BBQ en een fantastische bar direct aan het zwembad met prachtige palmbomen. Ben er in september 2013 geweest met familie en vrienden. Weer geboekt in sept/okt! In een woord: TOP!

Geweldige vakantie

  • 5 of 5

Een fantastisch huis, voorzien van de laatste snufjes. Een geweldige zomervakantie gehad. Kids vinden het fantastische dat ze een HELE villa hebben met eigen zwembad, en dan ook nog een game room. De ruime tuin is indrukwekkend, en de rust is heerlijk. De master bedroom is een plaatje. Kortom: een van de mooiste huizen OOIT.

Wij hebben heerlijk genoten met onze kinderen, hun partners en ons eerste kleinkind in dit prachtige huis.

Volop privacy.Iedere slaapkamer heeft een eigen badkamer.

Heerlijk zwembad om lekker te chillen met goede muziek (Sonos) en een drankje.

Prachtige, goed onderhouden tuin! het enige groene gras in de omgeving!

Car: not necessary

Casa da Mó, named after the valley in which it is located, has been completely created and decorated for a top family holiday.

Beautiful location in the hills near the city of Faro, the cosy Olhão and the historic Estoi.

The villa is at walking distance from the picturesque Pechão with small bars, restaurants and shops. The region is excellent for cycling and walking, the car will take you in a quarter of an hour to sandy beaches and nice touristic attractions.

Even though you are at a central location and everything is accessible at a short distance, you can enjoy privacy in and around the house, the villa is at a small hill from which you have a panoramic view (and even a glimpse of the sea) but you cannot be seen yourself. Fully detached at 7000 M2 own terrain.

Sea and beach at the lagoons & Tavira

You can reach the sea in many ways. To the east of the Algarve you can find the beautiful green lagoons. They are so special that the region is considered protected heritage by Unesco.

You can enjoy sunbathing and swimming near the lagoons that are close by (10-15 min). It’s peaceful here. When you want to visit the sandy beaches, located at the Atlantic, you are brought there with a ferry or water taxi (couple of euro).

When you go somewhat further east you arrive at the beautiful city of Tavira, the old capital of the Algarve. Here you can also find beautiful lagoons (Ria Formosa) where you can lie at the water, but you can also visit Ilha de Tavira, an island in the Atlantic, by ferry, where you can find lovely restaurants, small bars and a splendid broad sandy beach with all facilities.


This is a lovely fishing village at a 5 minutes drive from the villa. Here you can find all kinds of things, a.w. small restaurants, supermarkets and small shops, but even malls.

On the boulevard you can also find a lot of stalls and restaurants. Here the ferry also leaves for the beach. The enthusiasts can also find here a McDonalds.

We have eaten at some sort of 'all you can eat' restaurant. You can order à la carte here (limited choice) or a buffet with varied meat. One then comes to your table to cut the meat with some sort of ‘swords’: picadores. One comes by as often as you are hungry. This restaurant is on the boulevard, approximately 40 meters before the police station. You can eat both inside as outside.

You can also find a covered market at the coastal road. Here you can buy all types of fresh food, Portuguese fresh, western purity! The fish market is open until 1pm. Immediately from the sea on your barbecue.

Half of August there always is the seafood festival. Music and especially a lot of food. The festival is at the same street of the fish market. We have also tried about 2 other restaurants. Dolce-Piazza and Pizza Na Prada. Both with an Italian orientation. You can also eat, fetch or have brought very good pizzas. We have eaten both steak as pasta. Both most delicious! With the emphasis on most. Excellent dining, fine wine list and excellent service. The prices were better than expected.

The harbour is lovely to parade and smell the scent of the sea, restaurants and fresh goods. The Algarve in optima forma!

Faro beach

To the west of Faro there generally are sandy beaches, as far as you can see. Wide to very wide sandy beaches.

Praia de Faro is a wide sandy beach with lovely beach tents and all facilities, at less than a 20 minutes drive from our house.

Tip: At high season it is relatively peaceful during the week. You want to come in the weekend: no problem but please be present then around 10am. You can then still park your car for free and have the ideal spot on the beach for the taking.

You drive there the following way: follow Faro, Faro airport and subsequently the Praia da Faro road signs.


The Algarve golden triangle!

Vilamoura, a small half hour from your villa.

Golf enthusiasts will go crazy here. You can also see here there’s lots of money to be found. When you drive inside it does look like a golf course.

Here also a very nice harbor with lots of restaurants and shops. In general the shops are above the restaurants.

The water enthusiasts can also find here a mega swimming paradise, with lots of slides and water attractions. You have to spend some time here.

From Vilamoura you can also take fishing trips, cave trips and snorkel trips. There is also a beach to the west of Vilamoura. You can jetski, parasail and sail behind a boat with something. The beach also provides enough possibilities to shower, drink and eat.

It’s here more expensive though than for example Fuseta. Parking facilities near the beach, possibly sheltered. Costs somewhat more... but then you have something!

Fuseta: nice village with beaches

Fuseta is a nice Portuguese village with a beach with bars and terraces at the shore. You can also visit about 4 beaches here, some even uninhabited. Also try lunch in an open-air barbecue restaurant. Unforgettable!
