Typical , traditional 1 bed cottage in a tiny quiet hamlet gives you a unique place to stay in an unspoiled village. Comfortable and rustic authentic accommodation, two sun terraces and large luscious garden. Perfect for de-stressing and soaking up the sun. Stunning views and dramatic sunsets across the valley.
Nearest beach 30 mins drive,local village 10 mins. Private transport is essential
My sympathetically restored farm cottage gives you comfortable space in a traditional Portuguese cottage. The accommodation gives
1 double bedroom
A long south facing terrace with tree shade.
Large mature garden .and patio with BBQ and dining area on a second lower terrace.
The property does not have Wi Fi connection.There is free access in the local village.
Car parking space is available at the property entrance.
The location is intensely rural but not remote. The tiny hamlet is unspoilt with only a handful of cottages around it.
All of the local people are known to me. The location is safe and friendly. There is abundant wildlife to enjoy but please be aware that seeing geckos in the house is not unusual they are harmless.
Due to the rural location,there is NO public transport. Private transport is essential to get you to the cottage. Travel from the airport is an easy drive perhaps only 30 minutes. To St Catarina.
From St Catarina, the hillside road , 10 minutes drive , brings you to your accommodation. Please note there is no local shop within walking distance.
Regarding the local wildlife it is advisable to keep doors closed there are friendly local dogs and cats who will enjoy a nap on your bed or steal your dinner when you are sunbathing.
There is NO disabled person access and due to indigenous plants and trees in the garden it is not recommended for small children who may hurt themselves on Agarve plants which have sharp points.c
My guests have access to the large private garden and sun terraces. The barbecue is available and also sun chairs.
