Estoi House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living room with fireplace oven, large terrace
The Casa do Esquilo offers 130 sq.m area of very comfortable space for a maximum of 4 people. There are 2 bedrooms, each with double beds (width 140 or 160 cm). In the “South” bedroom is the en suite bathroom. The “North” bedroom has an extra bathroom. A very well-kept kitchen allows for the preparation of tasty food. The large living room is equipped with a comfortable leather sitting area, a fireplace oven and a pull-out dining table with 4 chairs. On the large terrace, you can be lazy in the sun or you can have a fantastic view of the Atlantic. Since our Casa is a new construction and wonderfully insulated, you can also live comfortably here in the “transition times” and during the winter. If needed, a spacious thermal solar unit, which also prepares the warm water and the water-fed fireplace oven, which is only heated with wood, provide for environment-friendly warm comfort.
Excursions: Should you want to go on excursions in the fantastic environment, then visits to the nearby cities of Faro (old city, cathedral!), Olhao (old city, fish hall), Tavira – the “Venice” of the Algarve (medieval, salt mines) are worth it. Visits to the Cabo Sao Vicente, the most western point of Europe, to Sagres (castle from Heinrich the aviator) and in the shaded Monchique mountains should not be missing. A ride along the bordering river to Spain, the Guadiana, is worthwhile. Excursions to Seville and Lisbon are possible on good highways. A small cruise to the surrounding islands (Ilha de Faro, Armona, etc.) is worth a “trip”. On the beautiful beach of “Pedras del Rei”, you can either get there on foot or by train and can walk in the sand to Spain.
Dining and drinking: Restaurants in a radius of about a 15 minute drive (e.g. in Estoi, Moncarapacho, Sao Bras de Alportel) provide for your well-being with tasty Portuguese cuisine. Typical for the Algarve menu is fish and seafood. Portugal is a wine country and it is always worth trying the white, green or red wines.
