Retired couple from Finland

We rented "Quinta dos Gaios" for six months (9th October 2015 - 31st March 2016). We were looking for a place in the countryside in Algarve because we had lived many winters by the seaside.. When we found Quinta dos Gaios" ,it was perfect place for us. It is located just 7 kilometers from the town of Tavira , the landscape is beautiful and safe and the house is surrounded by a citrus garden. We especially miss the taste of freshly squeezed orange juice we enjoyed in the mornings. Since we are Nordic people we appreciated the fact that the house was warm during the winter months. There is an air-source heat pump in every room but we also liked the possibility to use the wood-heated fire place in the house. It was was also possible to use the heat from the fireplace to warm up the bedrooms upstairs. We love to play golf. We played at the Benamour golf course in the fall and Castro Marim course in the spring. We can recommend both courses. What made our stay at the "Quinta dos Gaios" very pleasant and successful, were the hosts. They made us feel like family. When it was time to leave back home we were much more than tenants; we had become good friends, very good friends. Thank you for everything

Outstanding Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay at the house for six weeks from 2 June 2013 until 14 July 2013. The house was very modern, fully air-conditioned and kept to a very high standard. It overlooks a 2 ha orchard that forms part of a river valley- it is very picturesque. During our stay we are able to pick fresh oranges, figs, peaches, raspberries and pears from the orchard that are grown organically and were delicious. There is also a magnificent vegetable garden with every vegetable you can imagine. The municipal markets in Tavira also have a very good range of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as fresh fish.

The house is approximately 10 km from Tavira, which is an easy drive. In Tavira there is a large modern shopping centre with an extremely good supermarket, as well as many other clothing, shoes and homeware shops. The house is also located 20 km from the Spanish border and is a perfect location to explore various towns in Spain including Seville and Cordoba, which we did. We also used it as a base to visit other attractions in the Algarve as well as towns in southern Alentejo. The beach at Tavira Island is very pleasant and only 10 minutes drive from the house.

Lastly, Orlando , Aramanda and their daughter Marta are the perfect hosts. You can have as much to do with them as you wish, or as little to do with them as you wish. They are extremely pleasant and generous people who treated us like family and ensured our stay was a pleasant and meaningful as possible.

We highly recommend their house and their hospitality to anybody considering renting a house in the Algarve.

Maison très spacieuse, confortable et très bien équipée. Les propriétaires, Armanda et Orlando, sont à votre écoute et à votre service. Le lieu est magnifique, un peu à l'écart du centre ville mais d'un calme absolu.

C'est la deuxième année que nous y passons un mois complet et projetons d'y passer mars et avril en 2017. Nous recommandons cette habitation sans aucune hésitation.. Chantal et Georges

Prestations haut de gamme pour ce "gite", plutôt superbe villa, avec piscine et grand terrain avec légumes et fruits à notre disposition !!

Armanda et Orlando vous reçoivent "comme à la maison" et sont d'excellents conseils. Zone encore préservée du béton plus à l'ouest de l'Algarve, nous sommes à 10 mn de Tavira pour courses, restaurant, plages, etc.

A recommander, même pour 8 personnes très à l'aise.

Accueil extraordinaire de...

  • 5 of 5

Accueil extraordinaire de la part des propriétaires. Une gentillesse sans cesse renouvelée qui si caractérise par la mise à disposition de leur potager, des arbres fruitiers et le cadeau de légumes et même de vin. Les petits problèmes rencontrés concernent la petitesse des sales de bains et, parfois, l'utilisation par les propriétaires et/ou membres de leur famille de la piscine (ils devraient à ce sujet faire indiquer dans leur annonce que la piscine est à "partager"). Cela mis a part, la maison était dans un état de propreté impeccable et tous les appareils ménagers totalement fonctionnels.

Notre séjours s'est déroulé dans les meilleures conditions compte tenu notamment d'un temps exceptionnel. Merci aux propriétaires pour leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité.
