CASA DA FIGUEIRA IS A CHARMING TWO BEDROOM COTTAGE

Santa Luzia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A ‘home from home’ for people seeking a break away or a longer term rent

Casa da Figueira is a charming two bedroom cottage ideally located in the Ria Formosa nature reserve and within walking distance of beautiful beaches and the authentic small fishing village of Santa Luzia. Within its compact interior and its walled terrace garden you will find quality décor, plenty of comfort and privacy. A ‘home from home’ for couples seeking a romantic break away or a longer term rental.

This lovely L-shaped cottage is set within 530m2 of grounds with a pool surrounded by a terraced seating area and plenty of shaded parking under some ornamental and fruit trees.

The cosy 70m2 interior has been lovingly furnished and decorated, it offers a modern fully fitted kitchen and is well-acclimatised for all seasons.

The open plan living and dining room has a small mezzanine above it with single sofa bed. Velux sky lights and a wood burning fire enhance the country atmosphere. Leading off from this main room is the kitchen, bathroom and a two spacious double bedrooms, both with air conditioning and one of which is en-suite.

Four sun loungers deck the terrace around the pool and there are sun umbrellas, a large table and chairs available. The ornamental trees close to the house also provide good shade.

The pool is 4 m x 4 m with a depth of 1.5 m. A small metal step ladder is mounted on the inside edge. Freshwater pool with Chlorine cleaning system. The pool is serviced twice weekly during summer and once weekly during the rest of the year by a competent and reliable professional. Pool and garden lighting is available.

Although the mezzanine has a single sofa bed, the access by wooden ladder is not ideal for young children or larger grown-ups, so we would not recommend it be used.

We can supply a cot, linen and high chair, charged at 20 euros per week. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.

Casa Figueira is suitable for elderly who have access to a car, due to the nature of the terrain in the vicinity.

The property is not at all over looked and the nearest resident neighbours are 250 metres away.

Amenities are reached by foot between 10 – 15 minute on unmade country lanes, part of the Ecovia bicycle and pedestrian route. The property is set off the lane and has its own gated entrance and a small private driveway alongside it.

Being set within a nature reserve and so close to beautiful beaches, tidal rivers and dry meadowland, this area is a very quiet and natural environment.

Santa Luzia can be reached in 10 minutes by foot and hosts a very good choice of restaurants, specializing in fresh fish, octopus and shell fish. There are many riverside cafés, a bank, pharmacy and local grocery shops and butchers. You can also buy the fish of the last nights’ catch, though in Tavira, 2km away, there is a wider choice in the daily market.

Barril beach and Terra Estreita are the nearest beaches being less than 2 km away. However, both are part of a 12km beach island which is accessed by crossing the estuary either by footbridge and footpath or by miniature train at Pedras D’el Rei or by a seasonal small ferry boat service running from Santa Luzia. Each of these routes is a very pleasant and healthy journey to some of the finest beaches in the area.

Our changeover days and times are flexible, though we aim to keep bookings as close as possible. Departure is by 10am and arrival is from 2pm unless otherwise arranged.

Guests will be met at the villa, or otherwise informed where to locate the key and visited soon after arrival. We ensure a prompt and competent service from a team of property managers, who can be contacted at anytime.We provide a once weekly linen and bathroom towel change including a clean of the bathrooms. Beach/Pool towels are also supplied.

There will be some toilet paper and soap for arrivals and a hamper of beverages, with additional breakfast and snacks are provided for late arrivals.

I just wanted to let you know we had a lovely relaxing holiday with our daughter at Casa Figuera last week.

Please will you pass on our thanks to Anne for her kindness in sorting out taxis for us.

The cottage is set within a nature reserve and so close to beautiful beaches. Santa Luzia can be reached in 10 minutes by foot and hosts a very good choice of restaurants, specializing in fresh fish, octopus and shell fish. There are many riverside cafés, a bank, pharmacy and local grocery shops and butchers. You can also buy the fish from the previous nights’ catch, though in Tavira, 2km away, there is a wider choice in the daily market.

Barril beach and Terra Estreita are the nearest beaches being less than 2 km away. However, both are part of a 12km beach island which is accessed by crossing the estuary either by footbridge and footpath or by miniature train at Pedras D’el Rei or by a seasonal small ferry boat service running from Santa Luzia. Each of these routes is a very pleasant and healthy journey to some of the finest beaches in the area.

Golf: There are excellent golf courses within 8 to 10 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.
