Guestbook comments from the owner
This place has soul and we are all stunned by its beauty. It completely melted our Northern hearts.We will cherish the fond memories of joy around the dinner table, the children playing in the pool, the views and the sunsets.

Thank you for letting us stay here.

Jan Tore

The stay in your house made our summer!

I have never seen a more beautiful house and you must have big hearts sharing the art and personale touch with strangers. I really hope we can come back to this place.

Moncarapacho, Colibri, very good
Car: recommended

After a beautiful country drive, which takes you past plenty of fields full of orange and lemon trees and lots of quaint little farmhouses with original water mills, you reach the double gates that take you up the drive to the brow of the hill and this country oasis called Monte das Figueiras, a Portuguese estate style property near the picturesque village of Moncarapacho and 20 minutes from the beaches of Fuzeta and the islands.

The newly built main house (‘fazenda’) immediately invites you in by way of authentic and antique imported Bali double doors leading to the double height entrance hall.

This is the heart of the property, hence the large round family table with chairs and antique teak wood benches, seated in the 8 meters high hallway leading to the open plan kitchen with modern steam oven, induction cooking, red and black granite dresser and hand painted tiles and an open fire place. Large wooden French doors open up to a pergola covered terrace with wrought iron and glass tables and chairs. The large stairway in the hall takes you up to a mezzanine with library, underneath the wood feature ceiling with indirect lighting and from there via the landing to the cosy living room with seating around an open fire. Two large balconies offer views over the rolling hills and the double French doors take you out on to a partly covered wide terrace with BBQ and outside kitchen part. From here you have an almost 360 degrees view, to the sea in the South and the mountains in the North. A few steps down from here and you are at the pool area, which, because of the sloping land, is also only a few steps from the ground floor level.

Monte das Figueiras is designed by the owners, a creative couple from Holland. Christian Oerlemans, former owner and creative director of a well known advertising agency, famous for many campaigns in Holland, like 'Even Apeldoorn Bellen'. Author of novels and poems. His wife is Will(emine) Kellermann, painter of the 'Romantic Adventurism' (www.willkellermann.com), a colourful artist, her paintings selling worldwide. She is responsible for the interior decoration and the choice of materials. This ownership makes the house very special, both inside and out.
