Quinta Stardust is placed in a traditional small village of Quelfes only 10 mins from a very beautiful town- Olhao. You will find yourself super close the best market with fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, etc., in the area. Olhao has its amazing charm of a fishermen's coast town.

The space
Please note that this is our main house and we live here most of the time/ we have a 2nd house on Bali/. We only rent it out in summer when we go away. It is not a typical rental option but a fabulous family home with plenty of character. We ask you to treat it with due respect as it is where we will come back again straight after our trip :)

Casa Stardust is placed in a traditional small village of Quelfes only 10 mins from a very beautiful town- Olhao. You will find hourself super close the beaches of Armona/Culatra/Farol-3 islands in front of Olhao's harbour, to the best market with fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, etc., in the area, to the magnificent beach of Barril /25 mins drive/ and to the vibrant Faro with its airport /25 mins drive/. Olhao has its amazing charm of a fisherman's coast town with its great architecture, artistic expats, vibrant and serene aura. Casa Stardust is also a 30 minute drive from the Spanish border where you can discover the beautiful town of Ayamonte straight after the border or enjoy magnifucent Sevilla that is only an 1.5h drive from here.

It’s an excellent starting point for biking in the nearby villages, exploring the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, exploring Spain's beauties, and Algarve's' richer part- Quinta do Lago/Vale do Lobo. You can reach the islands of Ria Formosa and the beautiful beaches of the area from Olhao Harbour. It is also a departure place for the boat tours, surf, visits of Ria Formosa Parc and all the summer activities.

Our house is a very big property with a huge garden spreading in front of it. Casa Stardust consists of a main house and 2 separate cottages. It can sleep up to 8 adults and 2 children or less adults and more kids. There is the main house with the master bedroom, big living space, our office space, big and very light kitchen, tv room and loundry. It is a unique and colorful piece of art - our house. Great decoration, traditional flooring/ in the main house/, painted furniture, walls, etc. Fantastic light effects, too! The main house has 2 exit doors: one opens to a swimming pool, its deck and the fabulous garden and the other one opens to a shady and very romantic court. From that one you enter to the cottages. We also have a traditional calçada /pavement/in the main parts of the garden.Our garden features 2 beautiful terraces: a round one with elegant outdoor furniture, old, tall trees surrounding it and a romantic turtle pond to relax by/ the other one is smaller but so pleasantly shady which is a relief in summer period. We have lots of old trees,flowers and even an orchard on our property. Fruit trees are at the further end of the garden. The spacious house, the vast garden, great swimming pool, plus the extensive land belonging to the property is really something special in this area.

We also have some animals on the property: cats, chickens and pigeons. Please be so kind to respect them and love them. Some of the cats are used to staying in the main house /inform other allergics/.

Our house has a lot of charm and this special southern atmosphere you will adore. The air smells differently, the light is divine, the flowers and the greenery of the garden are simply enchanted and the swimming pool is a cherry on the top of it all :)

Thank you in advance and enjoy our Paradise!
