Casa de Campo is a old farmhouse from the beginning of the 1900´s, that was carefully restored between 1998 and 2000. During the restoration work we tried to preserve all the old architectural existing elements, and at the same time offer the comfort of a actual holiday house. During the restoration the farmhouse was divided into 2 houses that can be rented together or separately. The house has a big terrace with a large divided porch that gives you access to the Garden and to the orange plantation. On the big Patio you find sun beds and sunshades, where you can discretely and privately have some sunbaths. Under one antique olive tree is a barbecue where you can grill the freshest fishes from the marketplaces of Tavira or Olhão.
The property has 1000m2 with several fruit trees like (Orange trees, Peach trees, Figs trees, Olive trees, pomegranate), and also several aromatic herbs and green tees, that can be picked up by the house guests. The house provides a outdoor parking place for 3 Cars.
Casa de Campo is peacefully and privately located in a rural area, close to the small rural village of Amaro-Gonçalves (200m), and only 8 km away from the Venice of Algarve “Tavira”.

Great farm house which has been nicely restored. The owner and his mother were very responsive to our needs during our stay. Being able to pick fruit from the orchard on the property was an unexpected treat. Unfortunately, although the property and the owners are lovely and the location was just what we were looking for, we found the neighbouring dogs to be noisy. The barking began around 7pm and continued off and on all night for 3 of the 5 nights of our stay.
The house is spacious and the garden is lovely, and it was a very special experience to wander through the orchard each day, picking fruit straight from the trees - delicious and healthy!
Marcos and Maria made us feel so very welcome and were very attentive to our needs.
We have already recommended the property to several friends.
What a suprise Maria had fresh fish on the bbq for our arrival. Fresh bread and hand picked fruit from the orchard awaited us.
So tranquil and relaxing yet we made friends with Marias friends and were showen places that we would never have found on our own.
Pictures on the web-site did no do it justice.
