About Angie Davies

I am Angie, I bought our Quinta (farm) in 2004.

It took us about 3 years to get our house ready for rental.

We have been renting now since 2007.

Prior to having our Quinta we had a property on the coast which became too busy for us.

We love being where we are and manage to visit our house about 5/6 times a year.

Prior to retiring I flew with a major airline and when in England we live in the Cotswolds

Angie Davies purchased this villa in 2004

Why Angie Davies chose Barranco de São Miguel

We wanted to get away from the crowds and this farmhouse, tucked away in the real Portugal had everything we wanted.

We love the view, the tranquility and the people.

What makes this villa unique

Our house is cool in the summer with its thick stone walls.

We have lovely breezes in the summer and azure skies.

We can walk to our coffee bar and sit and watch the world go by, we can visit a local restaurant and eat freshly caught fish.

We can stay at home and swim, sunbathe and then when

the sun goes down, switch the pool lights on and stargaze

whilst we have a drink.

Will we eat out, we will barbeque, perhaps we will eat in,?

It does not really matter.

We just love to unwind............... we hope you will too.

Stunning location in the Algarve countryside with superb views

  • 5 of 5

Matching the stunning location this villa ticks all the boxes for the most relaxing yet still adventurous holiday as you explore the Algarve. The villa as everything you need is very spacious with every kind of amenity you require. We could not smile wide enough when ee arrived knowing that our expectations had been met and then some. If i have one negative the shower in the master bedroom needs updating but it did not detract from my stay in a most wonderful place

Thank You Angie & John for making our 2017 holiday so special.

Best Regards Phil and family

Stunning property, clean and beautifully furnished, inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Travelled with a one and five year old and the property catered for them both. Lovely swimming pool - paddling pool is a bonus when you have young children! Quiet, peaceful area - a welcome escape from everyday life! We couldn't fault the property at all, or the level of service provided by the owners. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

A delightful rustic farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

A lovely Quinta in such a peaceful setting and so much bigger than we anticipated. Great pool and BBQ which we used every night. Bedrooms and living areas well furnished and the kitchen and utility had all mod cons. Only half an hour from Faro airport and Tavira, so ideally situated up in the hills. We made good use of O Rissol ten minutes walk away where everyone was so friendly, with excellent rose and tapas. Would thoroughly recommend this farmhouse and Angie very helpful with the booking and was happy to provide basic provisions as we arrived in the evening. A great holiday.

A little piece of paradise in rural Portugal!

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse is absolutely beautiful with a great pool and patio area. It was so relaxing we hardly moved from the pool area! The bedrooms are well furnished and the whole house is welcoming - it was lovely to be able to go up to the roof terrace in the evenings. Facilities are great with 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen with microwave, cooker, fridge, freezer, dish washer and washing machine in the utility area. It was an easy drive from Faro, Angie gave us great directions, she even left us some provisions as she knew we'd be getting in very early in the day and wouldn't have had a chance to shop. Angie was very friendly and helpful during and after the booking process. I would not hesitate to recommend the property - we loved it!

Our house is ideal for families and individuals who want to get away from it all.

There is plenty of room both inside and outside our Quinta (farmhouse) to relax in the sun or shade by the pool or in the sunken garden.

We have both an indoor and outdoor barbeque.

If you have small children, they can test the water

in our split level paddling pool, attached to our main pool.

It is your choice if you want the pool heated or not.

There is an extra charge for this.

As well as having almond, fig and peach trees in the garden, we are surrounded by farmland, citrus groves and fig orchards.

There are numerous restaurants nearby ranging from very cheap to a little more expensive.

We have bread and fish vans that stop close by.

All the towels and bedding are 100% cotton,

all pool furniture is hard wood .

We have large umbrellas to keep you out of the sun.

There is a sea view from the terraced bedroom.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

We are here to help
