Os Agostos...

Between the coastline and the highlands of Algarve, 14 kms off the city of Faro and 5 kms off Santa Barbara de Nexe, lies the Agostos Estate. GPS location: N 37º 07' 17.14". W 7º 56' 23.39"

Os Agostos is the name given to the houses on the 3ha of farmland and to the area itself. It comprises two dwelling units and an olive press house.
The main dwelling unit dates possibly from the Eighteenth Century and reveals the typical square structured building around a traditional patio.

Dear Maria and the Os Agostos Team,
Mark and I would like to thank you and all of your team from the bottom of our hearts for your part in our wedding, Friday 14/06/19 in Os Agostos with Carin from Glamour Wedding Planners. We honestly had the time of our lives and it wouldn’t have been the same without the part you all played. People are still talking about your amazing venue (I believe two couples from hearing of the wedding are now booked in!!). Os Agostos is just amazing and that's testament to all the hard work, you Maria, and your team put in. Please pass on our HUGE thanks to the amazing culinary team, the food was incredible and I must say the staff were above and beyond anything we expected. They were so attentive and fantastic, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Would you have the email address of the caterers and I could send on our thanks also? I have amazing photos of Os Agostos which I will send to you with our thank you card. We will definitely call next summer to say Hello!!!

With huge thanks again,
Kate Nagle and Mark Foster

Hi Maria,

 Just wanted to pass on our thanks for hosting us on July 6th.

Our guests loved Os Agostos, the decor, the variety of spaces, the food, wine and and professionalism of the staff. Thanks for a fantastic day and night. 

All the best,


Zoe & Dave

Zoe and I wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you for an amazing weekend. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday went seamlessly and we really appreciate all the work you and Ana Rita put into our wedding. The wedding venue was absolutely beautiful, the flowers were stunning and Charlie and Daddy Jack were great entertainment.

We’ve had so many comments on the small details of the wedding and these wouldn’t have been possible without you. Everyone had a ball, including us, I don’t think we stopped smiling all day!

Zoe and I have had so much on this year but you’ve made organising the wedding easy and really enjoyable.

All the suggestions you gave us were great and there’s nothing that we would have done differently.

Please send on our thanks to Maria at Os Agostos and the catering team, they did such an incredible job, and the venue looked truly stunning.

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!

Love from,

Dave and Zoe

To Maria,

Hello Maria, hope you are doing well and keeping busy. We just want to get in touch to thank you for everything.

We cannot praise you and your team enough for the day you gave us in Os Agostos. 

We had the most amazing day along with all of our guests who have not stopped praising Os Agostos since the wedding day.

Everything was perfect and was actually more than we expected, every inch of Os Agostos looked stunning and was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. 

The food and drinks were amazing as we expected and to add to this the staff were just wonderful and so friendly and attentive to us and our guests. 

We just had the most amazing day and we are so happy we made the decision to have our wedding in Os Agostos, we actually could not fault one thing. 

Once again thank you for all your hard work and allowing to share our wedding day with you. 

We would also love to come and stay at Os Agostos in the future if possible :)

Lots of love,

Lora and Joe Carroll :)

Anna & Sam


What can we say , Anna and Sam, and all their guests had the most amazing time . Os Agostos is a beautiful place, but never more beautiful than when it comes alive for a wedding and then reflects the beauty of the Portuguese summer night. Our guests were stunned by your place , they loved the space, the quirkiness, and the continual surprises and discovery of secret places , especially the courtyard and dance area.

Again thank you so much for such a memorable day.



Hi Maria, I just wanted to say thank you to you and your husband for what was probably the most magical day yesterday for our family and guests but especially for Lois and Andy. I don't know where to begin so I will just say absolutely everything was beautiful from start to finish, thank you once again x.

Os Agostos. It was just magical. We absolutely loved every single minute of the day with you. OS Agostos just looked so beautiful, it was magical. So many of our guests said they thought they were on a movie-set or at a wedding of a celebrity couple! We loved your amazing attention to detail around your property. The food was exquisite - absolutely superb and we loved the presentation. Your waiters were also so lovely, friendly and attentive. You have a superb team. We loved the Marquee and wow what a surprise walking out of the Marquee at midnight over to the courtyard - it was one of the highlights for both Sinead and me - it was just stunning, so magical. We loved the after-party in the barn. So many of our guests said it was the BEST wedding they were ever at. We could go on and on praising you and your team and Os Agostos. You were just lovely to deal with from day 1.. So unbelievably professional and helpful. You have a real gift and talent for what you do. Please feel free to pass on my contact details to any couples considering getting married at Os Agostos. I am huge fan of passing on compliments and we could not have asked for a better day.

Ronan & Laura


To Maria

Thank you so much for organising the perfect location for us to celebrate our wedding. Os Agostos was the highlight of the day and we loved every detail & thought made to make it as beautiful as it was!

Martin + Aileen


We attended a wedding at 0s Agostos in May 2017: what a joy! The venue was absolutely splendid- we enjoyed drinks in the spacious and picturesque courtyard before going into the beautifully airy wedding room. The banquet was held in the gorgeous marquee which was decorated magnificently. 

Unfortunately we did not have reason to use song of the enchanting interior rooms in other parts of the premises - I hope we have the oportunity to enjoy them at a future date! 

Os Agostos is a delight: elegant and relaxed, sophisticated and comfortable at the same time. The catering was superb, the staff were charming and the level of customer care was superb. 

We wish Os Agostos every success and hope we have an opportunity to return to this fabulous venue before too long.

Dear Maria and Antonio,

This is going to be the "proper" thank you for the two fantastic evenings at Os Agostos for the Amigos this week.

Please be assured of our heart-felt appreciation

of all you are doing to make these concert evening Real Events on the Algarve social calendar.

We are now attracting more and more walk-in fans and that can only be good also for OA.

The catering is super good, plenty, varied and I have had only compliments.

Thank you thank you,



Mallory & Shamir Haji

Where do we even begin? You made our wedding day everything we could have imagined it to be. What I envisioned on our first visit to Os Agostos came to life on October 8, 2022 and it was beyond our expectations. Not only did you make the wedding planning process a breeze, you made it enjoyable - even from such a distance. Here are just a few of the comments our guests shared with us: 

 "In what world did you find this place?"

"Is there anything you didn't think of?"

"I've never been to a wedding venue and thought how do I figure out how to come back here - and then I came here! Can you get married here every year :) "

"The drinks, the food, the service, the cake, all of it was divine!"

"We love Adelino"

"I can't get over how perfect this place is!"

"Can they bottle the sauce from the filet because that was incredible?!"

"I don't typically like wedding cake, but I would have eaten the whole thing if you would let me"

 The list goes on - but its clear what we loved about Os Agostos from the first day is what our guests loved too. The staff was phenomenal and the service rivals any 5 star restaurant. Our glasses were never empty and our guests shared the same sentiment. Please share our many thanks to Adelino - there are a few photos which Matt & Lena captured of us with him. He cared for us with such heart. Shamir has shared his story with Adelino on many occasions regarding Adelino's marriage wisdom. A truly beautiful man who will always have a special place in our heart. 

 Aude, you are beyond talented. Our florals and decorations came to life as if you were living in my mind. And the fruit was a hit on many levels, and seeing it as a 2023 wedding trend! You are ahead of the game!

 Thinking back to our wedding day brings us to tears simply because of how wonderful it was in so many ways. Thank you again and again for hosting our perfect day!

With full hearts, 

Mallory & Shamir Haji

Becca & Dave

Maria, Aude and Taelor, 

Apologies for the delayed message.. we have been exhausted after all of the fun!!! 

We have no words to express our gratitude to all of you for quite literally giving us our perfect day. 

Every second of it was magical from start to finish. There was nothing we could have done differently. 

I never imagined our wedding day to be so perfect and seamless and that is all thanks to you. 

You guys are something special and I am so thankful that our paths aligned for our wedding Day. 

The feedback has been incredible - blown away by the venue, the decor, food, the organization, the setting, the staff, and the flow of the night. 

Please pass on our most sincere gratitude to everyone involved. 

With the understanding that thank you will never express our gratitude adequately, we hope you can understand the depth of our sincerity. Please use the above as testimonials or as you need - although I think a number of people from the wedding will be back for their own by the sound of it!!!!


With so much love, 

Becca and Dave X

Ali & Jack

Hi Maria,

I just want to thank you and your team SO much for an incredible day last Thursday. We couldn’t fault a thing. Your venue is absolutely stunning, all of our guests were in awe! The staff couldn’t have been kinder. They were so hospitable and nothing was a problem. In particular Adelino looked after our table extremely well. My glass was never empty! The food, drinks and flowers were as high a standard as your venue. The food were totally delighted with them.
Thank you so much again.
Ali and Jack x

Caoimhe & Evan



Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish. We cannot thank you enough for all your help over the past year; for your recommendations, advice and kindness. Our guests had an absolute ball and we had the time of our lives. 

Also thank you so much to Adelino the waiter who served our table, he was so attentive and kind! The food was absolutely delicious and presentation just gorgeous.

I could go on forever, I could not find fault in anything!!

You, your staff and your venue are just perfection.

Thank you so much,

Caoimhe and Evan

Mr & Mrs Soutar

Hi Maria,


Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you again for letting us host our wedding at your incredible venue. The setting, food, staff (especially Adelino!) and multiple areas were incredible and our guests couldn’t believe how beautiful the place was! We will send through some photos as soon as available and have already recommended the venue to another couple for next year! We will also do a 5* google review shortly. 

Thank you again for making our day so special!

Mr and Mrs Soutar! 

Sheila & Robin

Dear Maria,

Thank you again.
