Arao is a tiny village with a cluster of small holdings and our very own local pub! A car is advised as the nearest market is in the next village, approx. 3kms away.

Quinta do Arão, Arão, Mexilhoeira Grande 8500, Portimão, Algarve
Directions from Faro Airport to Quinta do Arão - We are situated 45 minutes drive west of Faro airport - approximately 70km.
1. Exit the airport car park. Keep in the right hand lane and take the signs for A22 towards Faro, then A22 Portimão. 
(3 minutes into journey)
2. Just after the "zone industrial" sign, come off and follow the signs for A22 to Lisbon/Portimão - this junction comes on you quickly, take care of traffic joining.
(10 minutes)
3. Take the sign for A22 Lisboa/Portimão/Albufeira. 
4. Once on the motorway there are about 70kms west to travel along the A22.
5. Continue to take the signs for A22 Lagos and Portimão.
(40 minutes)
6. Continue along the A22 past Portimão and Alvor. 
7. Turn off at Junction Mexilhoeira Grande / Autodromo.
8. Keep to the right hand side of the road and follow the orange signs to the Autodromo. 
9. At the round-about take the 3rd exit to Vale da Fonte. 
10. Follow the narrow country road for about 1km. 
11. You will pass a few houses on both sides of the road. 
12. Quinta do Arão is on your left hand side. 
13. Look for a low stone wall and black wrought iron gates with a sign that says Quinta do Arão on the wall.

By Train 
One has to go into Faro to get to the train station, which is located within 50 metres of the bus terminal. The 'Linha do Algarve' is slow but perhaps more enjoyable than taking the bus. The journey to Lagos takes about one and half hours, winding its way through the countryside before following the coastline from Alvor bay. The last direct train is in the early afternoon so this journey would only be possible for those arriving in Faro on a morning flight. The best option would be to take the train directly through to Lagos station and catch a taxi to Quinta do Arão from there.
The train journey from Lisbon is also very scenic and should not be discounted. The trains are very modern, clean, comfortable and the ticket price is very reasonable. There is only one change over on the Lisbon to Lagos route and that is in Tunes.

By Taxi
Taxis are available from the airport at a cost of about 70 Euros one way (season depending).

By Bus 
There are no direct bus routes from the airport; one has to transfer to the bus terminal (Estação Rodoviária) in Faro. The bus stop for the transfer to Faro bus station is right outside the airport terminal and the timetable is posted on the sign. Buses are usually every half hour. It's a 10-15 minute journey into Faro and you are dropped a few yards from the coach station. Inside there is a digital timetable of destinations and coach numbers and the ticket kiosk is opposite that.

On arrival you will be met by the owners. We will ask you of your estimated arrival time when you confirm your booking. If you are delayed by more than a few hours we ask that you please phone us to let us know of the length of the delay.

Some basic kitchen and bathroom essentials (drinking water, toilet paper etc) are provided, but as you are self-catering it may be advisable to bring some supplies with you or buy them here.

We offer a Welcome Basket at a cost of 50 Euros. This usually includes fresh bread / rolls, butter, cheese, ham, honey, sugar, milk, tea, coffee, Meusli, seasonal fruit, fruit juice and a bottle of red wine. Please advise us at the time of booking whether you require a Welcome Basket.

There is one small, people-friendly resident dog on the property. We also have our neighbours' donkeys wandering around the grounds from time to time. Due to this reason we unfortunately do not allow guests to bring their own dogs.

The apartment will be cleaned once a week, and linens will also be changed once a week.

We have our own well which provides water for irrigation and mains water for household consumption.

We provide firewood, free of charge. Please help us be kind to the environment and turn off lights / electrical appliances during the night or at times when you are out.

Le logement est très grand et très propre. Il ne manque de rien. La grande terrasse avec BBQ au charbon permet de belles soirées en famille à l'extérieur. De plus, l'endroit est très bien situé (près de Portimao et Lagos). Pouvoir relaxer sur les chaises de la piscine, entourées d'arbres et de vallées, est également un plus pour cet endroit. Mais le charme de cette villa ne serait pas le même sans l'accueil de son hôte Nathalie et ses parents. Elle est très soucieuse que ses clients passent une belle expérience à la villa do Arao... est c'est TRÈS réussi !

Notre séjour en famille (2 adultes et 3 enfants) chez Nathalie s'est très bien passé. L'endroit est calme et reposant tout en étant proche de la plage et des lieux (website hidden) maison correspond exactement à ce qui est décrit. Merci encore à Nathalie pour son accueil et sa gentillesse.

We loved our stay at the artists retreat. It is the perfect spot for a family get away or reunion. Our two year old loved running around the yard and hearing the nearby donkey. We also had amazing oranges from the citrus grove every day. The hosts were lovely and very helpful. The house is well stocked for cooking and Natalie and Angelika were very helpful and got us a baby bath and highchair for our daughter. They even had a cute little seat for her at the living room table. The surrounding area is beautiful and we hope to return soon! (The food market in Lagos on Saturdays is well worth going to for all your fruits and veggies).

Natalie, unsere Gastgeberin hat uns bei unserer Ankunft herzlich in Empfang genommen. Wir hatten das größte der Apartments gemietet, welches voll und ganz nach unseren Vorstellungen ausgestattet war. Von unserem Apartment aus konnten wir jeden Tag tolle Ausflüge Richtung Portimao, Lagos und die Westküste machen. Auch Monchique, der höchste Berg der Algarve ist in ca. 1 Std. problemlos zu erreichen. Wir verbrachten 10 wunderbare Tage auf der Citrus Farm und uns wurde nie langweilig. Voraussetzung war hier jedoch ein Leihauto. Natalie hatte auch ein paar gute Insider Tipps fuer uns parat und sie war für Fragen oder Anliegen stets erreichbar. Auf der citrus farm selbst war es ruhig und Natur pur. Genau das richtige um den stressigen Arbeitsalltag zu entkommen. Wir können diese Location jedem empfehlen und hoffen, dass es uns einmal wieder dorthin verschlagen wird.

NAtalie was superb and we enjoyed our visit so much we wish we had stayed longer . For the record I thought these lines were appropriate and captured the spirit of the occasion Quinta do Farao this happy day spurns from dawn to dusk It's a must for happy families and trust To find a homestead true and fine Enjoy an evening bathed in wine Our gift today was Benji and Natalie A fine pair of friends who's lives are free This farmstead rocks like an anchor stone To all who visit and share their laws it's a happy place no spot does touch the word ' alone' The bath is deep , the lathe is old Such stories of the past to behold A family castle of worthy and keep Ensures its guest sound slumber and sleep Enjoy your days in such country fare Be good - for life here reaches the soul Stand outside and drink in your stares For memories will haste fond thoughts no ' gouls ' !

Travel is a big part of my life. In 2008 I decided to sell my flat in London, pack up all my things and take off to travel around the world for a year. It was the best thing I could have ever done. It changed my life. Since then, I have settled in the Algarve, Portugal on our beautiful family estate - a 6 hectare orgainc citrus farm on the best sunshine coast in Europe!

I started up a business with my family on our farm restoring 3 beautiful apartments that we now rent out to wonderful people like you. We put the emphasis on eco friendly - all our water is solar heated and we do not use fertilzers or chemicals on our trees. We let nature take it's rightful course.

Our hosting style is very relaxed and we hope our guests will take with them a calm and relaxing memory of our tranquil, peaceful setting.

In addition to renting out our apartments, I take guests on tours to stunning locations such as the beautiful West coast beaches, the majestic Monchique mountains, local vineyards and champagne sunsets in Sagres, Europes most Southern tip. I'm happy to arrange personalised tours too, just ask!
