Little gem :)
We contacted Suzana on arrival in Portugal and even though it was a few hours ahead of check-in she was fine with us arriving early at the property. The house is about a ten minute drive from Olhao and 20 minutes from Faro. It is situated next to a secondary road with very little traffic. It is not overlooked by any other property. There are a couple of restaurants and some little villages within 5 minutes drive.
When we arrived we were impressed with the size of the swimming pool and the outdoor area. Suzana walked us through the property and let us know we could contact her if we needed anything. The house itself is very spacious, clean and airy. It has all the commodities one would have at home with the exception of a dishwasher. The washing machine is situated outside and there is a terrace to put the washing out.
We spent 9 relaxing days at the villa and are looking forward to going back again. If you are looking for peace and quiet I recommend that you rent this property. Traffic is non existent in the area except when people are travelling to and from work, even then nothing to disturb the peaceful atmosphere.
Lovely rustic villa with plenty of space
Visited 25 March for a week, warm in the day but cold at night, villa has a log burner that we used to stay nice and cosy. Pool a good size, not heated but we used it on the 3 hottest days. Villa very well equipped and the owner Suzanne very friendly and accommodating. A very enjoyable stay for a great price and weather good for the time of year. Recommended.
Many thanks for your nice words.
My pleasure to have you staying at my house.
Quiet location in rural Pechao, lovely house, clean and tidy with a really lovely swimming pool
Highly recommend this property if you want a quiet location but within a short drive of a town and good restaurants. The owners are pleasant and on hand if needed. Faro is again only a short drive, but you are far enough away for peace and quiet, brilliant pool and we had a lot of fun using it. Our teenagers loved it
A perfect holiday retreat for all the family
My family and I stayed at Casa Barbara in July this year. It was absolutely lovely; a little oasis, complete with palm tree. It was a perfect place to unwind and relax and it had everything we needed to make it a brilliant family holiday; as mentioned in a previous reviews the pictures do not do it justice. Suzana was friendly and welcoming and when we had a minor problem one evening she came straight round and it was resolved; nothing seemed too much bother for her. You do need a car, but it’s worth it. We would definitely go back.
A real hidden gem with a super pool
Our second visit to Casa Barbara and another thoroughly enjoyable stay in this typically Portuguese rustic villa which is a real hidden gem. The villa is very well maintained and spotlessly clean with a huge pool. The garden is beautiful with a very tall palm tree as a centrepiece and the only neighbours are a few goats! If you are looking for a relaxing peaceful holiday in ,away from it all, very traditional Portuguese surroundings then you have found it. The owner Suzana is the perfect host. All correspondence is very easy and Suzana makes sure that your stay is just perfect. The villa is close to many fantastic beaches and just a short drive to the towns of Olhao, Fuzeta and Tavira. Highly recommended and we will certainly return.
Photos don't do it justice!
We are a family of 5 and had ample space, the villa itself is very spacious and suzana kept it spotlessly clean. It has a rustic feel to the farmhouse and there was an abundance of towels, bedding and kitchen utensils. Suzana couldn't do enough for us, she met us in the village when we arrived in the evening and took us to the villa where she had left us a welcome food pack with essentials. The best thing about this villa is most definitely the very large pool....my 9 year old was so excited!! It is bigger than it looks on the photo. Definitely need a car as very rural but we wanted a totally relaxing holiday where we could unwind and that's exactly what we got. Not far to get to Olhao town centre, great fish market if you get there early enough. Faro is also only about half an hour away with lots to see. Only downside is the road can be a bit noisy at night and the beds are quite hard, but then I always find this when I go abroad!! The garden is stunning with flowers and fruit trees, my youngest enjoyed picking the mangoes and cracking open the almonds. It is secluded so great for sunbathing in peace. Would have been nice to have more english channels on tv for the evenings, however we enjoyed playing cards together as a family. Thank you Suzana for making us feel so welcome and for all you did to make our holiday a relaxing one.
