We got to know and love Portugal, and learnt fluent Portuguese, when we lived and worked in Lisbon from 1977-1983. During this time we visited the Algarve frequently and bought an old house in the São Brás de Alportel area which we have gradually done up over the years.
We currently live and work in Madrid and continue to return to our house in the Algarve several times a year.
More recently, we have built Casa Idalina and deliberately opted for a place inland within easy reach of the coast. This decision was based on our experience that this is the best way to combine enjoyment of authentic rural Portugal with easy access to all the fun holiday facilities that are available close by.

We were four couples having a one week vacation in algarve. This house was a perfect one for us with four bedrooms, four bathrooms and roomy living room and dining area. The area is beautiful on the slope of the hills. The situation of the house is also good, short distances to interesting places, but you will definitely need a car to move around.We warmly recommend this place!
So many friends, Espoo, Finland
