CONTEMPORARY VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL IN A RURAL SETTING WITH SEA VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Moncarapacho - Casa do Peixe Azul

3/4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower room, sleeps 6/8

Casa do Peixe Azul (House of the Blue Fish) is a single storey, detached villa, completed in 2004. It enjoys an elevated position in a tranquil, rural location nestling in the hills close to the village of Moncarapacho, 25kms east of Faro. The area is known for its citrus groves – Laranjeiro, the nearby hamlet, means ‘orange tree’. The house has its own private pool (10m*5m), is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. A large roof terrace allows you to relax and take in views of the peaceful surrounding countryside and the sea on the horizon. The nearest beach at Fuseta is a short drive, 5kms away.

Inside the villa.: There are 3 bedrooms - 2 have a double bed, the other has two single beds. In addition, a separate study can double up as a 4th bedroom as it has a sofa bed which can sleep an additional 2 people comfortably. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob, electric fan oven, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and fridge freezer, plus a generous array of other accessories. The living room has seating for 9 people and has a Nicam UK satellite TV, DVD player and a mini stereo system. A separate adjoining dining area leads onto an outside barbecue terrace where one can dine or simply enjoy the evening sun. There are 2 bathrooms – one with a shower, the other with a bath with a shower attachment. Each has a WC. The villa can be air conditioned (and heated if necessary during winter) at extra cost. Maid service and linen change is weekly, but additional cleaning can be arranged and is chargeable locally. Smoking is discouraged inside the villa but welcome on the terraces.

Other notes.: Outside, the 10m*5m freshwater swimming pool is adjoined by a lawned garden overlooking the orchards behind the villa. It benefits from an external shower and there is plenty of space to relax on sunloungers. We supply some beach towels for guests. A covered patio area offers shelter from the sun close to the pool, while the roof top terrace is ideal for sunlovers as well as providing a panoramic vista. A double car port at the front of the property enables parking for 2 cars in the shade. Children and infants are very welcome. We provide a travel cot, a high chair and a baby bouncer for very little ones. The study / 4th bedroom has a portable TV which younger guests may want to use to give grown ups some privacy in the main living area. It also has a Playstation 1 console and a VCR which plays UK compatible videos. In addition we have a few books, puzzles and games.

The Eastern Algarve.: The Eastern Algarve has its own distinct, picturesque character with the countryside dotted with citrus, almond and carob trees. Moncarapacho, the local village, has a 16th century church at its heart yet has supermarkets, restaurants, a selection of local café/bars, shops, a bank and even an Internet café. The area’s beaches are absolutely superb. Many are based on sandbanks, or ilhas, which can be accessed by boat, or in one case, a miniature train. These boast kilometres of golden sand with both decent facilities and plenty of space to escape the crowds. In addition the nearby towns of Tavira, Olhão and Estói are all worth a visit, while the proximity of Spain means that a day trip is little effort. The Rio Formosa Natural Park is a must for birdwatchers. A 9 hole golf course is very close, while a number of 18 hole courses are a reasonable drive away.

A Home from Home

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful villa which is very well furnished and equipped with as much kitchen equipment as my house at home. Everything is clean and new with excellent oven and hob in the kitchen. The location was perfect for us - quiet and secluded yet only ten minutes drive from the coast and lovely villages. And only 30 minutes from the airport! We loved the terrace which wrapped around the villa giving shade or sun as needed (as well as views over the countryside to the sea) and the pool area was a real suntrap with loungers, large table and chairs. The owner responded to my email enquiries immediately and the description on the website was accurate. In fact the reality was better than expected - I have already recommended this villa to a friend!

The villa is located in the lovely Eastern Algarve, 2kms from the village of Moncarapacho with its shops, restaurants and cafes. Nearby Olhão has a number of large supermarkets and fish restaurants and the regional capital of Faro, with its international airport, is not far away. The area’s beautiful, long, sandy beaches are easily accessible while a 9-hole golf course is close to Moncarapacho. Note too that the border with Spain is only around 30-40 minutes’ drive away.

Other Activities: birdwatching
