About the neighborhood
Casa Josephina is in a quiet and secluded area just on the outskirts of Quelfes. The village is dreamy and quiet - time seems to stand still. The villa is only 5 minutes drive from Olhao, the focal point for fishing in the Algarve, where you can find many shops and restaurants and, of course, lots of fresh and delicious fish. In a different direction, you are 5 minutes from Moncarapacho, a town which is well worth a visit and which has many fine restuarants. In the immediate (rural) area, there are a number of restaurants, marked by signs along the roads and country lanes. Driving on these roads you will pass many orange and lemon groves, and plantations of olives, agaves, figs and palm trees. Their different flowering periods ensure that it always smells wonderful! One of the great fea...
Getting around
There is a bus route through the village of Quelfes, serving Olhao, a town about 4-5 km away with plenty of shops. The bus stop is about 400 - 500m from the house. Taxis are easily available and our villa manager will recommend a local taxi company. But we strongly recommend hiring a car if you want to get the most out of your holiday, as that is the best way of visiting the many local beaches as well as the other local tourist sights and activities.
