About Jean

I am Scottish lady who was born with the travel bug and has still not been cured. I travelled the world looking for a place to call home and I couldn't believe my luck when I discovered this gem....I walked through the electric gates and fell in love with the bright bougainvilllea and gorgeous garden and so will you!

Jean purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jean chose Algarve

Monte Maria II has a magical atmosphere. There is always something new to admire in the garden or fresh fruit to pick in the orchard. Holidays here are all about relaxing by the pool and having freshly squeezed grape juice for lunch or pears for breakfast.

What makes this villa unique

The property is very private but not isolated. As all the properties in this area are relatively big, there are neighbours but you hardly see them. Just across the road is a little Portuguese bar with the best coffee in the Algarve hinterland for just 60 euro cents a shot. There is also a traditional country restaurant 3 min away with 'Steak on the Stone' speciality. My neighbours are fantastically friendly and most speak some Engllish although I am desperately trying to learn Portuguese!!

My villa lies in a wonderful rural setting with its own garden and orchard. The property is 2500 m2 and is totally private and enclosed. Your private pool is 9.5 m x 3.5 m and lies in the middle of beautiful flowers. You can pick your own fruit in the orchard.Its a million miles away from the hussle and bussle of the coast yet only 25 min from Faro airport, beach and golf courses.Small Portuguese bar and country restaurant within walking distance. My villa is ideal to explore the unspoilt Algarve hinterland or simply to relax by the pool or to do both!!

My villa is in the lovely rural village of Mesquita Alta but is only 2 km from Sao Bras de Alportel. My property is large and is situated in the midst of beautiful countryside. Its size makes it totally private and not overlooked by any other property. Its ideal for those wishing to holiday in nature but not lose out on luxury. However, just across the road is a little Portuguese bar where you can meet the locals for the best coffee in town - 60 euro cents a cup! Then 3 mins away is a lovely country restaurant where you're sure to love 'Steak on a Stone' their speciality..That is if you can tear yourself away from dining beside the floodlit pool in the evening under the stars of the Algarve.......

My villa is great for discovering the unspoilt Algarve hinterland. Go shopping at the Loule Saturday market which is only 11 km away or about 15 minutes. The loveliest coastal town on the Algarve - Tavira - is just 20 minutes in the other direction and another 10 minutes from here is Manta Rota beach with its fishing boats and amazing wildlife. Take to the hills and visit Alte and its lovely church - 40 minutes.

Sao.Bras de Alportel is a 20 minute walk from the villa or 5 min by car and you will love its old historical centre and Costume Musuem where they sometimes have Fado evenings or Jazz Sundays. S. Bras has some lovely dinky little shops and cafes and a smaller Saturday market. See it in May / June when the Jacaranda trees are in full bloom and you will never leave - like me!!
