THE CASARÃO OR MANOR HOUSE

Santo Estevao Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Pool, gardens, orchards, privacy, near beaches, safe for children, pet friendly

A vast conspiracy to make you happy… Straddling a ridge in an unspoiled landscape, overlooking the beaches basking in the sun, tucked away at the end of a long access road, MONTE SERRA offers peace and quiet. Children are SAFE; a gated wall seals off the pool area and there is no traffic but for yourself, the neighbour or the shepherd with his fluffy flock.

Some 30 acres of centuries-old trees ensure privacy to 4 separate accommodations. The place is vast; guests seldom bump into each other but if they do, they tend to meet a like-minded soul. The grounds hide peaceful corners for some quiet reading or a chat that had been waiting for a serene moment. Gardens and terraces with gorgeous ocean views invite to high tea, sun downers or a festive dinner. Take a refreshing dive, seek the solace of a pergola’s shade, stroll through the orchards and pick a grapefruit for breakfast or, at night, enjoy the starry skies and scents of ”dama da noite”, a flower that awakens when the sun has set.

WELLNESS: HEALTHCARE: bioshop and professional foot care

YOGA, BEAUTYCARE, MASSAGE: ask your host or look up our guide 'WHAT TO DO .... and WHERE':

FLORA & FAUNA: Go and see birds, dolphins, flamingoes and more..... The Ria Formosa sanctuary is a jewel; ask your host for guided tours by biologists or look up our leaflet 'WHAT TO DO .... and WHERE'.

SPORTS: Tennis, deep sea fishing, sailing or surfing, ask or look up our leaflet 'WHAT TO DO .... and WHERE'.

More Details

Details for The Casarão or Manor House 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 7, 3 Bathrooms

Restored to its 19th century glory, the manor-like house features Moorish-style doors and windows, period furniture, Kazakh rugs and stylish bathrooms. Original terracotta tiles clad the floors and antique azulejos depicting birds or flowers adorn kitchen and bathroom walls. The well-equipped kitchen kept its original oven, once used to roast 12 piglets to celebrate a village wedding. The cashier's office became a stylish dining room and through the wrought iron window bars one may catch a glimpse of the shepherd and his fluffy flock as they follow the old country trail. Amidst rose beds, a cobbled terrace under a vine canopy beckons to enjoy one’s meals ”al fresco”. Thick stone walls, high ceilings and whispering fans keep the house surprisingly cool on hot summer days; come winter and log fires and art nouveau stoves take over. Summary: 245m2 /2700sqft for 6~7p; corridor, living, dining, large kitchen, utility room, 3 bedrooms (2x double,1x twin), 3 bathrooms (2x bath,1x shower)
Suitability:

White Stables,

  • 4 of 5
WE did not stay in the property shown but in another property, a converted barn called White Stables, on the same site. The propery and the land in which it is set were ideal for our needs - isolated but driving distance to local beaches and towns. Our dog also was able to enjoy the open space (with an occasional mexican stand off with the woner's dog and cats!).

The main disappointment about the region was that almost all beaches ban dogs.

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben einen wunderbaren Urlaub auf der Quinta Monte Serra verbringen dürfen. Uns stand das O Casarao (das Herrenhaus der Quinta) für 2 Wochen zur Verfügung. Für 2 Personen ist es recht groß, wurde aber vom Eigentümer sehr liebvoll restauriert, so dass man hier einen hohen Wohlfühlfaktor hat. Landschaftlich ist es dort traumhaft und die Quinta selbst ist sehr gepflegt. Am Pool hat man einen fantastischen Blick über das ganze Gebiet rund um die Quinta. Alle Strände und Städte sind innerhalb 15 min gut mit dem Auto erreichbar. Auch gibt es vom Vermieter viele wertvolle Tipps, bzgl. Strände, Restaurants, Shopping etc.
Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen und werden in jedem Fall noch einmal dort Urlaub machen.

Charmantes Landgut in traumhaft schöner Lage

  • 5 of 5
Dieses wunderschöne und charmante Domizil hat uns traumhaft schöne 9 Tage Urlaub beschert, die wir- wenn wir es uns zeitlich hätten erlauben können- sehr gerne verlängert hätten.
Unsere Wohnung war liebevoll eingerichtet, mit viel Liebe zum Detail, sehr geschmackvoll und sehr, sehr gemütlich...mit einer wunderschönen Terrasse mit Blick auf den tollen Palmengarten und das Meer in weiter Ferne- einfach romantisch!
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und gepflegt....wie eben auf den Fotos im Internet abgebildet, bzw. die Angaben im Internet entsprachen voll unseren Erwartungen.
Der Vermeiter hat uns im Vorfeld sehr sehr gut betreut, hat uns bereits im Vorfeld mit zahlreichen Tipps bzgl. Ausflugszielen, Restaurants und sonstigen Aktivitäten "gefüttert"und war auch vor Ort jederzeit für Gespräche, Fragen und Tipps offen, die sich teilweise als wahre Geheimtipps offenbart haben!
Als besonders empfehlenswert ist ein Tagesausflug nach Sevilla....wie vor allem aber nach Lissabon, eine tolle Stadt! Besonders sehenswert ist außerdem eine Fahrt entlang der Felsenküste......ein landschaftliches Highlight!!!!!
Da wir in jedem Fall wiederkommen möchten und hoffentlich werden, können wir dieses idyllische Landgut nur wärmstens empfehlen......aufgrund dieser Abgeschiedenheit kommt man hier wirklich richtig zur Ruhe....und Jean-Jacques ist überaus sympathischer Vermieter, der immer gerne eine Geschichte aus seinem Leben zu erzählen weiß!

Wir kommen wieder, keine Frage! :-)

Très bon séjour en famille

  • 4 of 5
Nous avons séjourné, avec grand plaisir, 2 semaines dans la maison du Patio (2 chambres) au sein de la Quinta Monte Serra. Le site est très beau, calme, sécurisant pour les enfants, la piscine agréable avec un beau point de vue sur la mer. La location était très propre et spacieuse. Le propriétaire était charmant et de très bons conseils. Nous avons apprécié le service hôtelier durant le séjour. Et nous avons pu goûter les oranges, les figues, le raisin de la propriété.
Nous recommanderions cette location à des amis pour des séjours en famille, avec enfants, pour des séniors.
Nous avons pu rayonner dans toute la région ; Faro, Fuzeta, Tavira, Lagos...

What to do? Choose a famous golf course, a medieval castle, the scenic GUADIANA riverbanks, the old town of TAVIRA where country cooking or sophisticated recipes are served at palatable prices, a guided boat tour to the fascinating RIA FORMOSA wildlife sanctuary to see dolphins, flamingos and more … or Seville’s world-class treasures, an easy 90 min away. You are just 7 km north of Fuzeta. From this fishermen village a launch will take you across the lagoon to lovely Armona Island for “a day on the beach”. Walk a little and this beach is deserted!

Angela's small yet well-stocked mini-market 2 km away has fresh bread at 9am and most of the daily necessities on the shelves. Ask her a free-range cockerel for the pot or a homemade ice cream cake for a birthday party. On weekends, enjoy a bustling farmers’ market or a has-it-all gypsy fair: socks, donkeys, cheese, riding boots, fruit trees or BBQ lunch.

Notes:
This is 19th century luxury with modern comfort. The house is exceptionally spacious with thick stone walls, high ceilings and whispering fans keeping it surprisingly cool during the hot summer days. The kitchen has a few extras like a 5-ring stove, an extra wide oven and a small freezer which make it easy to cater for larger parties renting two or more accommodations. It is the most convenient place to do all the cooking; when gathering to share a meal a long dining table can be set on the rear terrace under a vine canopy, amidst English roses and conveniently close to the kitchen. Tucked away at the end of a long access road, Monte Serra offers peace, quiet and SAFETY for children: there is no traffic, except for your self, the neighbour or the shepherd with his flock. Moreover a gated wall seals off the pool area.
