Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Moncarapacho - Maison d’Artiste

This country house and adjoining cottage can accommodate up to 8 people.

Enjoy the harmony of art and nature in this bohemian-style house, garden and pool. Lovingly created, Maison d’Artiste offers inspiration and charm throughout!

This country house and adjoining cottage can accommodate up to 8 people. Have a totally original holiday experience at Maison d’Artiste, ideal for relaxing amongst friends or families with older children.

This multi-level garden with numerous patios and outdoor seating and barbeque areas has been created with loving attention. Scented climbing plants cover pergolas with dining areas, ancient carob trees offer shade over seating areas, spacious pool decking with dining tables and loungers, sunny terraces with azure blue walls and floors clad with mosaic detail… altogether an enchanting garden!

Maison d’Artistes’ unconventional interior integrates natural, flowing forms with traditional materials, Moroccan influences, rustic and Asian furnishings and an eclectic collection of ‘objects d’art’.

On arrival in the entrance hall, the domed ceiling with sky lights interspersing patterns of natural light promises an intriguing journey! Following irregular hand-plastered and white washed walls we arrive at the lengthy kitchen with tadelakt surfaces and a cosy dining table set beside a huge traditional stove (Jamie Oliver eat your heart out!). Gaudi-esque patio doors lead through to one of the many charming terraces, ideal for dining al fresco. Terracotta steps chiseled out of the rock foundations lead down to a delightful high-ceilinged space, with room enough to have a ball or have your own cinema viewing with the projector and screen!

Two double bedrooms are situated on the other side of the hall along with a beautiful serene bathroom with tadelakt bath tub set within rocks. Climbing the narrow stairs to the roof terrace you reach a fairytale tower with the third bedroom comprising a small single bed and a double bed mezzanine.

The studio house with its charming mosaic courtyard entrance is self-contained and connects with the main house through the beautifully designed kitchen terrace. Blending strong Moroccan colours with rustic furniture, this one double bedroom house with kitchen and bathroom is inviting and well equipped. The bathroom with its intrinsically mosaic ‘fittings’ is like no other you will find….!

Enjoy the sound of water cascading from the rocks above into a smaller pool before reaching the main pool, dimensioned at 4 x 9.5m with a large shallow ledge leading into a depth of 1 metre to a deep end of 1.8m. Freshwater pool with Salt and Chlorine cleaning system. The pool is serviced twice weekly during summer and once weekly during the rest of the year by a competent and reliable professional. Pool and garden lighting is available.

There are eight sun loungers to use around the pool and garden and a large sun shade over the poolside dining tables. Plenty of other chairs and tables furnish the garden and terrace areas.

We recommend suitability for children from 8 years old upwards as there are multi levels, some with no railings and steep unlevel steps.

There is a cot and high chair provided for pre-crawling babies. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.

Due to the unlevel nature of the property we would not recommend suitability for elderly.

The studio backs onto a neighbouring house, which is out of view. There are other neighbouring houses outside of the perimeter of the 2000m2 grounds.

The house is reached easily by tarmac roads and by a 100 metre track leading to the gated entrance.

Moncarapacho, 7km away, has some good local shops, cafés and restaurants and a market with fresh produce, open six mornings a week. Larger supermarkets are located in Olhão, 10km away.

A selection of beautiful white sand beaches are within easy reach, the nearest being Olhão and Fuzeta, reached in 15 minutes drive. Few places in Europe have so many Blue Flag beaches in such a concentrated area, you can enjoy the boat and miniature train river crossings, many of which are operational throughout the year.

There are excellent golf courses within 8 to 30 km from the Maison d’Artiste. The closest is Colina Verde, and further afield are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were very happy with the house and hope to return again to this extraordinarily original house.



The only improvement we can suggest is a full width curtain for the bathroom window.

Many thanks

Few places in Europe have so many Blue Flag beaches in such a concentrated area, you can enjoy the boat and miniature train river crossings, many of which are operational throughout the year.

The city of Faro is the capital of the Algarve and main doorway for tourism, however, Faro is also a beautiful and historic town of its own accord.

Faro was constructed in the Moorish era, but during the earthquake of 1755 most of the old buildings were destroyed. Within the old city ‘Cidade Velha’ you can visit the Gothic church of Sé, in amongst cobbled streets and white washed buildings set within sturdy town walls. The main appeal is the clock tower which you can climb up for superb views over the surrounding coast land. Another church worth visiting is the Largo do Carmo, which has a chapel built from human bones and skulls … not recommended for the faint hearted!

Faros’ commercial part of the city is pedestrianized and is a haven for shoppers. While the nearby ‘Forum Algarve’ shopping centre is a great last minute drop-in for gift purchasing before catching your plane.

Culturally Faro, Loulé and further west offer a wide selection of festivals, concerts and events during the summer month

The main industry of this bustling town, 15km from Faro and 20km from Tavira, is the catching and processing of fish.

Beside the river in the centre of Olhão are two large indoor markets with a delightful array of fresh produce, especially fish brought in from the port next door.

The warren of narrow streets and flat roofs lend a North African feel to the old town and the landscape.

Olhão harbor is protected by two islands with superb Atlantic facing beaches ‘Ilha da Culatra’ and ‘Ilha da Armona’, both reached by charming ferry rides from the dock near the market place

.

The islands are between 10 and 20 minutes boat ride away from the mainland and house a tiny community of residents but mostly summer huts and holiday homes. There is a very popular seafood festival during august with live music and hundreds of different ways to eat shell fish!

An active fishing town with a picturesque river front dotted with colourful fishing boats and wooden cabins alongside the walkway, where the fisherman sit and mend their nets.

Ferries run to the island of Fuzeta and there is a small beach with café at the end of the river walk, ideal for small children.

Every first Sunday of the month there is a flea market spread out from the riverside to the town.
