THE COTTAGE / A CASINHA (2P)

Santo Estevao Cottage 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'.

More Details

Details for The Cottage / A Casinha (2p) 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

A charming refuge, “a Casinha” in local parlance, has all it takes for a romantic get-away: the rustic luxury of antique rural furniture; a bathroom with a generous tub, period fittings, towel heaters and views of the hills; African hardwood parquet flooring in bed– and bathroom that are a treat for bare feet; air-conditioning for cool siestas on hot summer afternoons and for a chilly winter evening, a glowing wood-burning double-faced fireplace to be enjoyed from an armchair in the living room or from a pile of pillows when reading in bed. Utterly snug comfort for two! The privacy of a walled terrace overlooking the ocean and shaded by a bougainvillea canopy is a daily invitation for an ”al fresco” lunch; even in wintertime the midday sun will often beckon. Summary: 68 m2/ 750 sqft for 2p with open plan kitchen, sitting and dining area, bedroom with double bed, en suite-bathroom with tub, shower, twin bathroom sinks and separate toilet, private walled terrace.
Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Lovely peaceful place

  • 5 of 5
The description of the place was accurate. Its a peaceful, quiet place to stay. We arrived and the cottage was clean and well equipped. The airconditioning in the bedroom was great! The cottage has loads of character! Jean-Jacques is a friendly person who is always available to assist with any queries. The property is child friendly with a gate to the pool and there were lots of toys at the pool for our daughter to play with. A clean highchair and new travel cot were also provided. We had a lovely holiday here and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and quiet location. Its close to a few great local restaurants and lovely beaches. I would definitely recommend this place and we hope to go back again next year!

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.
