Sleeps 3 plus 1 x baby or small child on cot/camp bed

The space

Charmingly renovated 1 bedroom village house plus small Studio/Annex with 1 bedroom and 2nd bathroom. South facing balcony and sheltered external courtyard. Casa Papagaio is centrally located in Espiche village and an easy walk to all the village amenities. The proximity of Espiche to both Lagos and Praia da Luz make this an ideal base to experience Portuguese village life and explore the local area. The nearest beach is at Praia da Luz, a 5 minute drive or a 20/25 minute walk. As Espiche is a typical inland village with a limited bus service, a car is highly recomended for visiting the many beautiful local beaches and explore the Algarve countryside.

Guest access

Interaction with guests

I live just a 10 minute drive from the village so if you need any assistance or have any questions I can be with you quickly and easily.

Other things to note

We had a great time! We recommend warmly, even without a car, as there are 2 bus lines coming by the village that allows to get quickly to the beach and discover more of the region. Thanks for everything Suzanne!

Susan's house is ideal for a family holiday, we had plenty of room to spread out and the house is unfussy and cool in the heat. We really enjoyed the location, the village atmosphere and being outside the big busy centres but close enough to everything we needed. We hired a car which I'd highly recommend - buses only come once an hour to Espiche and there is so much to see in the Algarve. The washing machine, fan and espresso pot were put to good use and the upstairs balcony with views over the valley is lovely in the evenings. Thanks Susan. A lovely spot, highly recommended.

Dear Susan, we had very amazing five days in your cute house. It was an "base station" for us, because it was an ideal starting point to travel around in western part of the Algarve and the Monchique. The house was good equipped with mostly all of the daily necessities. If guests don't like barking dogs and meowing cats at night, take ear protection with you. See you - in Espiche again. Thx for all – Max

Susan's appartement is great: it has a livingroom and kitchen, a large bedroom with a double bed and balcony, a courtyard and a bedroom with a single bed with entrance from the courtyard: great for a child to have his/her own place! It's located 2 kilometers from a terrific beach with splendid rocks and it has a small supermarket around the corner. Very good value for money!

Hello my name is Susan.
I was born and raised in England where I studied Fine Art and worked for many years in Art colleges while also enjoying training and racing Arabian horses, painting and practising Yoga.
I always had a desire to live in warmer climes and now live here in the Algarve with my Brazilian born partner Peter and surf mad son Adam.
I am a qualified Hatha Yoga teacher with 20 years of experience and teach at retreats both here at the farm and in the UK. I also teach regular drop in classes in the local area.
In my leisure time I enjoy the beaches, painting, my horses and the rest of my menagerie.
We look forward to welcoming you to this very special part of the World.
