RUSTIC FARMHOUSE IN IDYLLIC, PEACEFUL ALGARVE COUNTRYSIDE

Tôr Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Self contained annexe with private pool, 30 minutes to beach and resorts

The annexe to Casa das Flores, a charmingly refurbished farmhouse, is peacefully located in the rolling green hills 10 km north of the market town of Loule. It is situated just 30 minutes from Faro airport and the beautiful Algarve beaches. The annexe is completely private and self contained with private swimming pool for the sole use of guests, terrace and gardens. The annexe has its own entrance with table and seating for 4 under the shade of an almond tree. There is a barbeque area with plenty of space and seating for eating al fresco. If you want to get away from it all and enjoy a tranquil holiday in the real Algarve, in the sun but away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, this is the place for you. The owner lives in the farmhouse next door and is on hand if required. For a self catering holiday with personal on hand assistance, if required, you can do no better than Casa das Flores.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Perfect Getaway!

This is a property to rent if you are interested in getting away from the tourist track. Total peace and quiet is what you will get both during the day and at night with uninterrupted views of the hills and the stars.

The property is a good size for one couple or a small family. The internal living area is not the largest but the outside areas are brilliant. A very good sized swimming pool and garden area perfect for eating outside and Barbecuing.

Ann the owner was lovely and welcoming, and nothing was to much for her. She had a good knowledge of the area recommending must visit restaurants such as Hambargo in Benafim the chicken place in salir and Monte de eira which is a delight.

The property is a 30 minute drive away from the beach resorts. A car is a must.

The only negative there was about the holiday, was that there was no constant Wifi, Ann has pay as you go internet which she will gladly turn on when and if you require it but i would not feel right using it for a extended time. I add this info Just if you require alot of internet access due to work commitments.

Thanks Ann for a lovely holiday

Farmhouse with large pool in a peaceful setting

  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2011

Located in Cerro das Covas, a very small hamlet near Funchais/Tor, which is just north of Loule, the house had everything in it that you could wish - an amazingly complete inventory! We did not need to dash out to the supermarket as soon as we arrived for breakfast the next day as we were greeted with an amazing welcome pack, which we were still trying to get through on our last day! We found this farmhouse surpassed our expectations and the very friendly owner, Ann was extremely helpful before and during our stay.
There was extensive tourist literature available plus wireless internet and our young children were happy to be able to watch their BBC children’s programmes via satellite. A selection of books, DVDs, CDs and board games were to be found in the living/kitchen area and the annexe has a well-stocked bathroom (shampoo/soap/towels/flannels included). There are two bedrooms (one twin and one double bedroom) with very comfortable beds and fans available. The swimming pool was immaculately clean (thanks to Ann) and there was a large selection of flotation aids/water toys for our children. Two large parasols and four comfortable loungers made it the perfect setting for lazy days in the sun, and two BBQs (complete with coal & lighters) were just a stroll away from the large pool terrace.
Ann was also on hand to offer any advice for day trips or questions that we had. Anne lives in the main farmhouse which is at the front side of the building, so the annexe is totally secluded and as guests you have sole use of the pool and rear garden areas. We also breakfasted daily outside the separate entrance to the annexe, where an additional table with chairs and a parasol have been thoughtfully placed. Ann has certainly gone to a good deal of trouble to assure that all her guests have a perfect holiday during their stay.
There is a mini-market in nearby Salir with larger supermarkets in Loule (15 minute drive away). Several markets held on Saturday in Loule are well worth visiting – a central market for fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, bread and local craftsmanship, and a Gypsy market for a much wider selection of goods.
Near to the farmhouse are many walking trails into the surrounding hills as well, and the A22 motorway is easily accessible just south of Loule, which made it very easy to reach the coast, and it was less than half an hour to Faro airport.
We would not hesitate in recommending ‘Casa das Flores’ for the perfect stay in the real Algarve!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway

Tor is a typical Portuguese country village with achurch, shop and a lot of charm. It is on a hill with a river running through the nearby valley which is great for walking, swimming, bird watching and exploring. Funchais is an outlying hamlet of Tor with two cafes and Cerro das Covas is a charming little hamlet up the hill from there. The market town of Loule is a 15 minute drive away. It has plenty of wonderful restuarants, take aways and supermarkets. Loule has a gypsy market every Saturday selling everything from T-shirts, to shoes, to table cloths and is a great place to buy souvenirs and do some haggling for a good bargain. There is a lively fish, meat and vegetable market every weekday. Salir is a white village 7 kms to the north with attractive houses, the remains of a castle and some great Portuguese restuarants. It has a bank, a good supermarket and a tea shop.

Other Activities: birdwatching and nature
