About the property

We have a wonderful place in the Eastern Algarve

The reason lies in Alcaria Fria, 40 minutes from Faro airport, 30 minutes from Tavira and 15 minutes from St Catarina. It is located in the mountains overlooking a small valley, undisturbed by anything other than the local wildlife. The site consists of two houses located quite close, and operate as a unit, therefore rented never out separately.

2 bedrooms with double beds

1 bedroom with two single beds

1 double sofa bed in the new house

1 double bed behind the curtain in the living room

2 folding beds

2 kitchens

2 bathrooms
