About the property

"The Casa do Pescador is my favorite spot in Carrapatiera. The house is small but the terrace is great, with nice views on the beautiful and peaceful valley and the beach of Bordeira...The house is perfect, you don't need more than that...What's unbeatable... is privacy...If you need some tranquility and would like to connect with nature and yourself, the Casa is right for you." (client review)

La Casa do Pescador is a renovated fisherman's house (small beach bungalow apartment) for 1-3 people (a double bed and convertible sofa). The house is situated just 2 minutes walk outside of the quaint town of Carrapateira and is a short distance form some of the most beautiful beaches of Portugal in the middle of a natural park, yet the the terrace, with a view overlooking the valley and the ocean, provides privacy and tranquility. On the lower floor, there is a room with a small kitchen and eating area, bathroom with shower, and separate sitting area. On the upstairs loft, there is a double bedroom. A table for eating and lounges outside are available for enjoying the serenity of the garden. The house has a video screen and a large selection of DVDs and books.

About Julie

Bom Dia! I love the beach! I grew up on the New Jersey shore in the United States and have been living for the last 22 years outside of Madrid, Spain, far from my beloved Atlantic Ocean! I currently give private English lessons, but I leave my schedule flexible so that I can travel, another love!, and spend as much time as I can in Carrapateira! I love taking long walks on the beach with my dog, Uba and my partner, Javier, followed by a swim in the exhilarating water. To me, the sea is not the sea without waves! I love playing in the waves and listening to the sound of them as the ocean inhales and exhales over the rocks. I have a daughter, 24, who also likes to escape with me. This spring I plan on exploring the many hiking trails in the area so that I can share with you my experience and give you some tips and routes. Since I cannot always be there when my guests arrive, I have a highly-trusted and friendly Senhora Filomena (speaks English, Portugese, French and Spanish) who is there to greet you and make sure that any problems that may arrive are taken care of. She lives in Carrapateira, a phone call away, and can be helpful for ideas about places to go in the area. She will treat you like a guest in her own home.

Julie purchased this house in 2016

Why Julie chose Carrapateira

I bought this house this year after going to Carrapateira for several years and falling in love with the area. I loved the house because, though less than a 5-minute walk to town and a short walk to the Praia do Bodeira, it is located on a quiet, dead-end street on a hilltop offering privacy and serenity. I loved the sense of getting away from it all, yet at the same time, being able to walk anywhere I need to go. I have put much work into renovating and furnishing the house so that renters will be comfortable and feel at home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

What makes this house unique

From the garden or the kitchen window and door, you can overlook the valley and the Praia do Bordeira. You can sit there quietly watching the waves or the sun go down behind the cliffs of the beach below you. The garden, with its flowering shrubs and trees, is a perfect place to relax, read a book, take a nap, do yoga (another favorite activity), or cook up a bbq! Also awesome are the stars at night! The few lights in the area make sky-watching a favorite for me. The location in a Natural Park has left the area unspoilt by development and offers many hiking trails to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. If you are looking for excitement, Lagos is about 40 minutes away and there are many site-seeing opportunities in El Algarve.

Alles da was man braucht

  • 3 of 5

Alles da was man braucht, was nicht so richtig rüber kam in der Beschreibung das der tv nur für dvd da ist. Bei den vorhandenen DVDs handelt es sich fast nur um nicht Deutsch sprachige.

Die außen Bestuhlung ist sehr vorsichtig zu gebrauchen , ziemlich brüchig.

Aber dafür entschädigt der morgendliche Ausblick beim Frühstück traumhaft

Nearest Beach
1 Kilometres

There is a wide variety of beaches--long sandy beaches or small coves embedded between cliffs and rocks. The two closest beaches, Praia do Bordeira and Praia do Amado, offer exhilarating experiences of surfing (Amado has major surf and body-boarding championships), wind-surfing, or kite surfing. However, the three kilometers of uninterrupted sand and the privacy and relaxation that Praia do Bordeira offers is what attracts me. There are surprisingly few people on the beach making it perfect for those who want to get away from it all. Other activities include hiking .through the National Park of St. Vincent, where besides the views of the "spectacular and dramatic coastline--still unspoilt...there is a rich variety of landscape--from the mountains of the Serra to rolling foothills interspersed with dramatic limestone escarpments. With the changes in scenery come variations in the local flora and fauna, which combine to make walking here so very interesting." (Walking in The Algarve, by Julie Statham) Other activities include horseback riding, mountain biking, kayaking, cave exploring, and bird-watching. Carrapateira officially is part of El Algarve which offers plenty of toursit attractions, shopping, night-life, golf and other sports, and site-seeing.
