My name is Marie, I'm french and I have been living in Portugal for 25 years, I run 3 holiday homes in Quelfes, near Olhão in the Algarve.
Situated in the countryside, which has sea views, in a calm and charming environment which is about 6 km from the large white sand beaches. The region is still authentic, away from the mass tourism.
