Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Querença - CASA ONRUST House of Peace

Casa Onrust -2-3 Bedroom villa set in beautiful mature gardens with pool

Casa Onrust means 'House of Peace' in Afrikaans. The setting and location live up to the name. Vale Telheiro was recently described as the 'Tuscany' of Portugal. The Villa has an attractive shaded terrace and the pool is surrounded by lawns and palm trees and seating areas. The owner lives in the main house with her friendly labradors Paula and Oscar who adore children. Uschi goes out of her way to ensure that a holiday at Onrust will be a tranquil experience. She's an artist and her flair is reflected throughout the whole place. Beautiful paintings adorn the walls and wonderful fabrics are used for curtains and soft furnishings. If you want to pamper yourself while on holiday, there is a beauty treatment/therapy room tucked away in the garden and the owner can provide aromatherapy, colour consulting and hairdressing. Alternatively you can just relax by the lovely pool and walk through surrounding countryside. Enjoy the calming atmosphere of this most delightful place.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. I went with some friends and we all loved our staying. The city of Loulé is very near but we feel away of everything. The house is very clean and confortable and the owner very nice. The gardens around and the pool are just wonderful. I will come back for sure.

Kleines Paradies auf Erden - Vielen Dank!

  • 5 of 5

Gleich um es vorweg zu nehmen: Das Anwesen wurde mit viel Liebe zu einem kleinen Paradies auf Erden gestaltet und wir denken mit Wehmut an die vielen schönen Momente zurück, die wir dort verbracht haben.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was das Ferienhaus-Herz begehrt: Bequeme Betten, eine tolle Küche und ein geräumiges Bad. Aber das absolute Highlight ist der Lava-Grill neben der schattigen Terrasse auf dem wir jeden Abend unsere auf den umliegenden Märkten erbeuteten Frisch-Fische zubereitet haben. Herrlich!

Die ersten Tage haben wir erstmal auf dem Anwesen verbracht, denn großen und sehr gepflegten Pool sowie den liebevoll nach Feng-Shui Prinzipien angelegte Außenbereich mit Kräuter-, Lustgarten und Fischteich muss man einfach auskosten.

Hinter dem Haus beginnt ein wunderschöner Rundweg durch das mit Mandel- und Olivenbäumen gespickte Tal, der zum Spazieren oder (durch das auf und ab allerdings anspruchsvollen) Joggen einlädt.

Loulé selbst ist ein geschäftiges, schmuckes Städtchen mit wunderschöner Markthalle, von dem man bequem zum Meer kommt aber auch das noch nicht so touristisch erschlossene Hinterland erkunden kann.

Wir haben unseren Urlaub vom ersten bis zum letzten Moment genossen und danken Uschi von ganzem Herzen für ihre Gastfreundschaft und die tollen Tipps!

Auf bald :-)

Alex & Simone

Ein Urlaub zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein toller Urlaub in Loulé. Das Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt, weitläufig und lädt ein, sich an verschiedenen Stellen einfach hinzusetzen, den Blick über das Tal zu genießen, oder den Kindern beim Herumtollen im Pool zuzuschauen. Es gibt viele Plätze, an denen man sich im Schatten aufhalten kann. Aber auch die Sonnenanbeter kommen nicht zu kurz. Unseren Lieblingsplatz am Fischteich vermissen wir jetzt schon.

Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, gepflegt und lässt kaum einen Wunsch offen. Die Tips, die wir bekommen haben, waren allesamt super. Vielen Dank an unsere zwei Uschis.

Unsere Kinder haben besonders Paula, Oskar und Tigerle ins Herz geschlossen.

Zusammenfassend lässt sich sagen: Es war herrlich, wir können es von ganzem Herzen weiterempfehlen und wir kommen gerne einmal wieder.

An excellent family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casa Onrusta and would highly recommend it as the best equipped self catering villa we have ever been to. Villa is full of excellent range of equipment, probably more than you’ll need. Excellent, well maintained pool is surrounded with splendid vegetation. Overall property is very clean and just beautiful. Owners, Uschi and Rudy are extremely helpful and charming people. Do not forget to ask Rudi for his exceptionally smooth schnapps!

Car is essential. Great ocean beaches and number of local attractions are within 10-20 minutes drive.

We definitely consider going back next year. Casa Onrust gets our full absolute recommendation. An excellent family holiday!

Thank you to Uschi and Rudi, we had a great time.

Our daughter learnt to swim in Rudi's lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place.

We've been twice, the first time in Aug 2006 the second Aug 2008 and we loved both visits.

The property itself is well described here, it's a two storey house with everything that we wanted including a massive sun terrace on the top floor, an outside dining area and barbecue and, of course the swimming pool. The house is in a walled garden with remote controlled electronic gates. It's in the hills just above the small town of Loule. Loule itself is unspoilt, not touristy, and has good shops and restaurants.

Well, that's the functional description. Lets move on to character. The owners- Uschi & Rudi and their 2 dogs and 2 cats live in the house next door and they are everything you could hope for or want in owners/neighbours. They leave you own your own when that is what you want, they are charming and generous company when you want that. And the place is beautifully maintained. Our (then) 4 year old learnt to swim in the pool that Rudi maintains. And I've never seen a better maintained pool. It's set in beautiful gardens with fig trees, they left dishes of figs out for us, they let our daughter use the granchildrens' toys, they could not be warmer. The dogs and cats are an added bonus. We like cats but we've never owned a dog but the dogs are delightful gentle family pets. If I had a dog I would like it to be it one like theirs.

Casa Onrust gets our whole hearted and unqualified recommendation

Tim & Jane
