Check out Casa Gecko at: www.casageckoalgarve.com

Guests staying at Casa Gecko wake up and step straight out through patio doors from the upstairs double bedroom onto the beautiful private south facing roof terrace, enjoying wonderful views over the open countryside and village rooftops.

The roof terrace comes complete with a large Weber BBQ and luxury garden furniture which allows guests to relax in real comfort.The open plan modern kitchen and dining area is fully equipped and includes a large fridge freezer, hob/oven, dishwasher, washing machine, pod coffee machine and ample dining space.

The spacious open plan living area features a large LED smart TV connected to the house’s high speed fibre optic broadband enabling guests to access a large number of channels as well as online entertainment services. The house also includes wireless speakers enabling guests to stream music from their smart phones or other devices.

In the winter months guests can enjoy the wood burning stove (logs can be provided for a small additional charge) and the house is equipped with several eco wall heaters.

The upstairs double bedroom has plenty of storage space including a fitted wardrobe. The double bed features an LED head board and deluxe memory foam mattress.

Casa Gecko has a large upstairs bathroom (with shower, bath, sink, bidet and WC) and also an additional downstairs WC with sink.

Due to the traditional layout of the village, guests are advised to park in the main square and make the short walk through the winding streets to the property. It is possible to drive up to the front door of the house in order to drop off luggage, but please be aware that the streets are very narrow. We think that this is a small price to pay for waking up to fresh air and bird song rather than fumes and traffic noise.

About Callum and Zoë McCutcheon

Hi, we are Callum & Zoë. We currently live in Scotland and have been enjoying wonderful trips to the West Algarve for over 20 years.

Callum and Zoë McCutcheon purchased this house in 2016

Why Callum and Zoë McCutcheon chose Raposeira

Raposeira and the surrounding area is a paradise for nature lovers, surfers and those who simply want to relax and experience the area’s amazing beaches, culture and fabulous cuisine. The village of Raposeira is only a five minute drive from the famous Zavial beach, and is also very close to many, many others. Whether you prefer the calm, turquoise waters of the sheltered south coast or the world class surfing on the west coast, you will be spoilt for choice.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with Casa Gecko because it has a very modern feel but is located in one of the most beautiful authentic villages in the whole of the Algarve.

Casa Gecko is a very spacious, fully equipped one bedroom modern two story house located in a quiet cobbled traditional village street. The large, south facing private roof terrace and modern interior allows you to immediately relax and unwind. Guests wake up to the sounds of nature rather than traffic noise and will enjoy wonderful Algarve sun on the roof terrace from sunrise through to sunset.

Beautifully presented accommodation in a village setting in close proximity to stunning beaches

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with HomeAway and with Portugal. We were met by Sylvester who met us in the square where there was a well stocked convenience store and we walked 4 minutes to the house up cobble stoned streets it was very secure and was beautifully led out for open plan living, the kitchen had everything we needed and was very well stocked with kitchen utensils. The living area was very comfortable and we enjoyed the blue tooth sound system and the internet access. There was also a television but the sunsets from the terrace upstairs meant we did not use this facility. If visited in Winter there is an enclosed fire which would be ample for the house.There was also a downstairs toilet.

Upstairs there is an ample double bedroom with patio doors to a large terrace and barbecue area with beautiful views over the Algarve countryside. The bed was very comfortable and the blackout curtains gave you the option to sleep as long as you wished. This accommodation is Portuguese village living and was quiet with the sound of birdsong in the morning and the locals going about their business throughout the day.

The decor throughout the house was immaculate and tiled flooring beautiful and everything was exceptionally clean. At every socket was a UK plug adapter and we did not find anything lacking to detract from our stay.

Casa Gecko is an exceptional property with an authentic rural Portuguese character. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it certainly exceeded our expectations.

Thank you Callum and Zoé for letting us HomeAway here.

Nice appartment in quiet little village

  • 5 of 5

We were the first visitors in this nice appartment. And the stay was great. So many beaches nearby.

The appartment has everything you need to feel comfortable.

It can become quite windy on the terrasse and you need a car to get around. The car can be parked in the village center.

Logement très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison située au fond d'un petit village aux ruelles très étroites et aux habitants accueillants... L'équipement de la maison est complet, soigné et en très bon état. A recommander pour des moments de tranquillité.

Raposeira and the surrounding area is a paradise for nature lovers, surfers and those who simply want to relax and experience the area’s amazing beaches, culture and fabulous cuisine. The village of Raposeira is only a five minute drive from the famous Zavial beach, and is also very close to many others. Whether you prefer the calm, turquoise waters of the sheltered south coast or the world class surfing on the west coast, you will be spoilt for choice.

The historic village of Raposeira was one of the places where the 15th-century Portuguese prince Henry the Navigator lived and the nearby 13th Century ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’ church was originally constructed by the Templar knights.

The village has several restaurants (including the famous ‘Marigil’), cafes, a well-stocked supermarket and a large Artesanato (traditional Portuguese pottery shop).

The village is conveniently located for access to a range of larger supermarkets, shops and restaurants in the neighbouring towns of Sagres and Vila do Bispo. Raposeira is also only a 20 minute drive from the bustling town of Lagos.

Faro airport is approximately a 60 minute drive from the property.
