This charming five bedroom 1970’s farmhouse is the first of James and Joanna’s projects in Portugal. Using furniture from a previous home in Prague they have transformed this farmhouse into a collection of eclectic private and public spaces to be enjoyed with family or friends in the gorgeous Algarve climate. With large gardens, a swimming pool and natural pond it is just 10 minutes from the sea and 15 from the airport, you can leave Dublin at 7am and be there by 11am. Please note this property is only availabe until 31st October 2023.

We had a wonderful stay in James and Jo’s Algarve Farmhouse. We were amazed how quickly we got there from the airport - literally minutes. The house is beautifully decorated and really comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious and there was plenty of room for all the family, including teenagers to have their own space. Even though close to everything, it’s a really quiet area. The weather was lovely even in February and the garden and pool area feel like a little paradise. We’ll be back!

Farmhouse Living


There are both interior and exterior living spaces for you to enjoy. Our interior living room is a mix of the classic and the quirky creating a room that is both visually interesting, eclectic and super comfy. The log burning fire, accent lamps, blue tooth enabled stereo system and a selection of books and magazines to suit all tastes creates a feeling of a home away from home helping you to relax and unwind. The living room opens on to a garden terrace with further sitting and dining areas, rolling gardens and orchards lead to the pool.

Farmhouse Dining


The living rooms leads to the dining room for more formal dining, which leads to a farmhouse style kitchen, or you can dine on one of the terraces or down by the pool, there are many options and facilities in place including an annex by the pool.

Just spent a great week in James and Joanna’s “Farmhouse in Algarve”. We flew into Faro from Dublin which was so straightforward it really enhanced our holiday. The house was less than 20 mins from the airport, with plenty of Ubers available in the area. The house is amazing, loads of space both inside and out. Obviously being early march we didn’t use the pool and the outside dining area much but it looks like a lovely dining area. The salon was a lovely space to relax and entertain. The bedrooms have great light especially upstairs.  The whole house is beautifully decorated and gives a great ambiance.  We will definitely be back and well done with your first overseas project.  Makes you feel like moving to Portugal!

I stayed in the house in February for a week with a group of adults and teenagers and even though the weather wasn’t great it didnt matter at all. The house has several different areas so we weren’t all on top each other. The garden creates an oasis that feels very secluded even though you are only a 20 minute Uber ride from the airport.   There is an out house perfect as a ‘teenage den’, the pool and table tennis table (and wifi) kept everyone happy!.    The house is clean and the Interiors are really gorgeous with plants everywhere!    I loved that we could walk into to town to the bakery in the morning, a short ride to a fantastic outlet/designers stores and 10 mins to the sea with a great selection of restaurants. Everything felt very easy and accessible.  I can’t recommended highly enough and have already booked another week!
