Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Moncarapacho - Casa Monte Cabeça
Quietly located in the countryside, luxuriously equipped, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bat
Casa Monte Cabeça is a luxurious house in a traditional Algarve villa style. With a fine sense the Portuguese architectural style was brought under the workmanship of time-tested materials in line with today's demands for a house in the south of Europe. Tasteful furniture, colourful fabrics and selected accessories set beautiful accents in the interior.
This very spacious villa offers a lot of comfort to its guests in the interior. The three bedrooms each have a large queen-size bed, built-in wardrobes and pedestal fans. Each of the rooms has direct access to one of the many patios. From all the rooms in the house, you can enjoy the view of lush greenery. Wooden shutters on all the windows are offered in summer for a pleasant room temperature, so that in the well-insulated house air conditioning can be deliberately avoided. Two elegantly tiled bathrooms are available for the guests, one of which is en suite in the master bedroom.
Over the large hallway you enter in to the living area, which is divided into a kitchen and a living room. The two rooms are separated by a sliding glass door from each other. The fully equipped kitchen provides ample space and comfort to accommodate a family of 6. One dining table is there in the kitchen, another one is in the living room. The living room impresses with its high ceiling decorated with reed and large windows facing three different directions. From the comfortable leather couch you can either take a look into the romantic blazing furnace, or out into the beautiful garden, or focus on the big screen TV.
Around the house are completely wide, tiled and partly covered patios, where any time of the day sun or shade can be found. They are lined with fragrant herbs, flowering shrubs as well as palm trees and birds of paradise. In between, you can see the Atlantic sparkling. Over the refreshing outdoor shower paths lead across the large grounds with its typical trees. Thanks to the idyllic quiet location of the house this is the ideal place to recharge your cells and recover from the stresses of everyday life.
The jewel with its 17,500 m2 plot is situated in one of the many regions used for agriculture with small fruit and vegetable plantations, a few kilometres away from the lively town of Moncarapacho. Casa Monte Cabeça sits on a gentle hilltop and offers a 360° panoramic view, which can be enjoyed especially from the huge rooftop terrace. Towards north a broad valley dominates, at the end of which, the first hills of Serra rise up. Towards south the view sweeps over the evergreen coastal region and the vast Atlantic illuminates on the horizon alluringly. In between is the nature reserve of Ria Formosa, a large lagoon which is home to many rare species of flora and fauna. The offshore islands with their beautiful sandy beaches can be reached from the house in just 7-9 kilometres. From Fuseta there are ferries that ride in the summer months regularly to the island, behind Luz de Tavira the beach of Barril can be reached all year round on foot over a floating bridge or with a small little train.
