Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Moncarapacho - Quinta dos Cavalos
Modern farmhouse in a quiet relaxing countryside location sleeps 6/7
Built in the traditional Algarve style with fantastic wood beamed ceilings throughout this spacious farmhouse has recently been refurbished to a high standard. It has 3 double bedrooms and a new fitted kitchen with dining area & all mod cons including American fridge/freezer with ice maker. The living room has a 42' TV with Sat & DVD. The Quinta stands in its own private grounds of 40,000sq mtrs and is an ideal holiday home for families. The terrace and outside covered eating area is situated by the pool and pool bar(with fridge & music centre) this is ideal for evening BBQ's. The pool is accessed via steps to the shallow end (80cm) ideal for children and the deep end is 1.7 mtrs. The terrace looks out over the grounds planted with Orange, Lemon, Almond, Fig & Olive trees. The farmhouse is situated close to the local town of Moncarapacho with all its shops and cafe's but the area retains the true Portuguese character unspoilt by tourism.
Things to do: Although the Quinta dos Cavalos is situated in the eastern Algarve being placed close to the major roads means that it is ideal to travel to see the sights. The capital of the Algarve, Faro, is 20kms away and is a busy European city with a new shopping mall containing multi screen cinema, food hall and designer boutiques, and a large supermarket, but also has the older town still unspoilt. The closest beach at Fuseta is only 15 min drive but both Fuseta and Olhao run small ferries to the islands of the famous Ria Formosa with all the most unspoilt beaches of the Algarve. Within a 40min drive you have all the tourist attractions eg. water-slide park, zoo marine (with swimming with the dolphins), casinos nightclubs ect. The other way Spain is only 52kms away with Seville 2hr drive and Gibraltar 4hr drive.
Assistance: The managers (Mr & Mrs Simkins) live in a cottage on-site and will be only to happy to help you in any way from assistance in the house to advice on places to go and local eating places.
