The Love Nest is located on the foothills of the Monte Sao Miguel range, an elevated setting with lovely mountain and stunning coastal sea views overlooking the distant offshore islands and towns from Fuseta to Olhao and Faro.
A rural country area in natural wild shrub land setting, very safe ideal for rambling country walks along the many lanes or mountain tracks to suit all levels of fitness or just unwind and take in the peace and quiet.
Shopping and village markets, festivals and affordable restaurants from 1.5 Km away.
The offshore islands beckon with endless, uncrowded and sun-drenched beaches, easily accessed by either water taxis or small ferries docking below in Olhao or Fuseta, under 10 minutes away.
The easy access to the A22 motorway allows all Algarve’s appealing entertainments, sport activities and even Spain to be very accessible, all within a 30minute drive.

Has own separated garden, boule court plus barbeque area and gazebo for alfresco dining and safe undercover shared carport.
The pool has no overlooking villas and is located at the front of our main bungalow house, and guests have own separate easy access at all times.
PLEASE NOTE that although the pool is located in front of the main house it is NOT A SHARED POOL at all as the owners are a long retired couple with a lifetime under an African sun and never ever use the pool.
The LOVE NEST was converted from our detached extra-large double garage into a cosy very comfortable open plan studio cottage for two.

CHANGE OVER DAY
The preferred changeover is Saturday but we are flexible wherever dates fit in reasonably with other bookings. To allow for cleaning please vacate by 10am on the day of departure. Occupation on arrival is 2pm, however whenever possible we gladly adjust for earlier or later flights times.
The property is on 3800sq meters of elevated private rural land overlooking some scattered villas below, it is securely fenced in with an automated entrance gate, driveway and mature gardens, grass lawns and cooling tall palm trees.
As the property is on variable sloping land care has been taken to avoid riser steps making it ideal for elderly or infirm to negotiate the cottage, parking, garden, pool and main house all on one level with aid of a few gentle ramps.
The Cottage has an own separate front and rear entrance, own boule court, gazebo, table and chairs and barbecue for alfresco dining.
The villa pool is 'L' shaped 24mts square area, ranges from 1.2 to 1.9m deep and has deep "champagne" seating steps, with sun loungers plus umbrellas, no overlooking houses.
For hot evenings the floodlit court awaits you for fun filled games of boule, and for colder nights the boule den easily converts to an “African Safari Campfire” style with fire wood logs available on request.
The cottage is owner managed, they have over 13 years’ experience in renting out their holiday properties. Their guest´s PRIVACY, SAFETY, SECURITY and wellbeing is most important to them and knowing holidays are the most precious times of all, special care is taken to ensure a care free holiday.
Being an approved and licensed holiday property the cottage is inspected and conforms to the comfort and safety standards such as:
Power failure warnings plus emergency lighting facility / Gas and Smoke detector alarms in the kitchen area / Strategically placed 2 category Fire Extinguishers plus Fire blanket and luminous Exit signs / First Aid Kit cupboard visibly wall mounted, to which we add extra anti-histamine tablets and creams to instantly reduce discomfort from stings and bites.
Some 3 years ago we installed into all 4 our properties top of the range yet easy to use Security Direct Alarms Systems to prevent unpleasant break-in intrusions spoiling our guest’s holidays,
However, as our permanent home Casa Lami alarm system is linked with the nearby Love Nest cottage we only ever use it when we are away for lengthy annual family visits to S. Africa and Australia; as the many alarm warning signs fixed all around our property is an adequate deterrent.
This alarm system also offers EXTRA PEACE OF MIND for emergency instant reaction, as it is directly linked via GPS to Police Villa Vigilance Service / The Fire Brigade / Emergency Ambulance with Paramedic Service / Plus a mere touch of a button away from National Emergency Service 112 attention, all of whom readily speak English.
Although the Love Nest is detached but situated in close proximity with the owners’ main house, our guest’s privacy remains paramount.
