Interaction with guests
I generally try to meet all guests but family and social matters call me back to the UK on occasion. For these times I have excellent Portuguese back up to meet you and solve any concerns that you may have and impart local knowledge. I like all guests to have WhatsApp on their mobiles as I create info groups for each period of a guest's stay. That way we all know what's going on and can respond quickly if required ! :-)

About the neighbourhood
A walk in the Barrocal
Villages nestling between hills. Walls of whitewashed stone flashing in the sun. The lush foliage of almond, fig, carob and pomegranate trees. The bright colours of windows and doors standing out from plain facades. From Mesquita, with its typical water mill, through the picturesque villages of Desbarato Mealhas, Gralheira and Vilarinhos, this route offers a fascinating insight into the Barrocal, the intermediate country that lies between the coast and the hills of the interior.
Up into the hills
Vast open spaces, pure air, fresh vistas around every corner. Then hamlets of just four or five houses perched on a hill top. A feeling that time has stopped, a sense of penetrating the secret heart of the Algarve.
