GENERAL:
Outside furniture includes loungers and dining furniture.
Linen and bath towels are provided but please take your own beach towels.
Suitability – Family friendly – cots are available and an infant’s crib. English speaking babysitter available. Owing to its proximity to the pool, the Casita is not recommended for infants unless they are constantly supervised.

The nearest beach is reached by a glorious short walk through a valley dotted with fig and bamboo groves, and medieval wells, with abundant bird and butterfly life. It is sheltered by cliffs all round with a ruined Roman fortress on top, and there is sometimes a freshwater lagoon. Because it cannot be reached by car it it tends to be deserted even in high season.

There is a small white-washed fishing village about the same distance away, reached on foot or by road in a couple of minutes. On its expansive, sandy beach fishermen land and sell their catch, mooring their colourful boats; several restaurants charcoal-grill the freshly-caught sea food, although recent ‘improvements’ have sadly led to some of its quaint character being lost.

There are many other deserted beaches and small coves within easy reach, with superb cliff-top walks between them, making this one of the finest stretches of untouched coast-line in in Europe.

Visitors are thus able to enjoy the unique combination of authentic village life, together with the comforts of a modern villa and pool normally found only in the development areas which have destroyed so much of the Algarve. They offer that rare discovery – the best of both worlds.

The houses are attractively furnished in traditional Portuguese style and include bed linen, towels, and complimentary welcome pack with selection of food and wine.
An English speaking baby sitter is available..

I am a retired barrister , now a watercolour artist. I restored this lovely property from a ruin 40 years ago and decided to rent it as a holiday home when I am not using it.
