Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
This room is located near beautiful beach landscapes, the city center and there are good restaurants in the area. You'll love my space because of the high ceilings, the warmth and the cozy and comfortable bed. My space is good for couples and furry friends (pets).

The space
This was my grandparents' house. It is a family home, where I spent most of my childhood. It was built in 1955 and is large with several rooms, common room, kitchen, dining room, four bathrooms, garden and terrace. As I love to host, I transformed the house into a Guesthouse called À da da Avó (a local expression for the grandmother's house). The Guesthouse has 7 rooms and receives a maximum of 14 guests. Our home is located 15/20 minutes walking distance from downtown and parking in the area is free. Faro is a small town but full of charm, light and sun and here you can enjoy one of the islands / beaches that we have, eat fish and fresh seafood and full of flavor, stroll and get to know the rest of the Algarve, since the train station and access to Via do Infante are quite close.

Guest access
Check in is from 2 pm to 8 pm and check out is until 11 am. If guests wish to check in outside these hours an additional fee of € 10 is charged. Guests have access to the communal kitchen, dining room, living room and back yard from 9 am to 4 pm.

Other things to note
Since 2015 Portugal has more strictly enforced a long­standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non­Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. This law has been brought into force in Portugal and most other EU countries at some point since the gradual implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement that aims to stop human trafficking and other ilegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and the recente Alojamento Local law in Portugal that has brought this rule into sharper focus. The governing body that monitors the movement of foreigners is SEF (Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras or the Immigration and Borders Service).

R. Ascensao Guimaraes 55, 8000-500 Faro, Portugal

Faro, Portugal

The quiet and the location of the neighborhood are excellent. The neighborhood is not in the center of Faro, but you can easily walk downtown (15/20 minutes walk) and catch one of the many boats to one of the islands (Faro, Deserta, Faro, or Culatra) or take the car and in an instant go through Via do Infante to visit other destinations. For those looking to relax on vacation this is excellent! At night when returning from the beaches, you can go have a drink at Colombus with fantastic cocktails, or go to the center of the old Village and have a great grilled fish at any of the many good restaurants there. If you want then you can go to Bar O Castelo to listen to music or even to Rua dos Bares in downtown Faro.

I am a very friendly person and I love to welcome people at my home. My favorite things in life are being with my family and friends, laugh, dance, and travel.

During your stay

I live in Lisbon and I'm in Faro only from time to time, so I interact rarely with the guests personally. However, I am always available to help and answer guest's questions via Airbnb, SMS or WHATSAPP.
Guests will also be able to interact with other guests or with my parents, as well as with our dogs, Mary, Bianca and Rally - the dogs are in the yard but can come home from time to time and are very docile and peaceful.
