Portuguese estate style property near the picturesque village of Moncarapacho and 20 minutes from the beaches of Fuzeta and the islands. The newly built main house (‘fazenda’) immediately invites you in by way of authentic and antique imported Bali double doors leading to the double height entrance hall. This is the heart of the property, hence the large round family table with chairs and antique teak wood benches, seated in the 8 meters high hallway leading to the open plan kitchen with modern steam oven, induction cooking, red and black granite dresser and hand painted tiles and an open fire place. Large wooden French doors open up to a pergola covered terrace with tables (wrought iron and glass) and chairs for 8-10 persons. The large stairway in the hall takes you up to a vide with library, underneath the wood feature ceiling with indirect lighting and from there via the landing to the cosy living room with seating around an open fire.

I am an ex advertising man, owner of an agency up to the mid nineties. Also a writer and poet. My wife is a professional artist, painter, with her own gallery.
Christian purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2008
Why Christian chose Moncarapacho
Luxury and comfort for up to 11 persons. We built a house in the Algarve Portugal. We designed it ourselves as a classic Portuguese 'Fazenda", the main house like an estate. Connected is the 'Quinta', the farmhouse where the atelier is and 2 guest rooms and bathroom and pantry. Next to this Quinta you'll find the 'Capela', like an old little cloister with a studio apartment and ensuite bathroom. On the side of the pool we have a large 5th bedroom for 3 ps, less luxury but a lot of room and ensuite bathroom.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
We have a wonderful garden, lots of land with an almond trees and other fruit trees and of course a large swimming pool surrounded by terraces. The property is built on top of a hill, with 360 degrees views towards the ocean in the south and the mountains in the north. Underfloor cooling throughout.

Excellent holiday in a beautiful home
We were two couples staying at this amazing house for a week (not long enough). The house was beautiful, with lovely features and amazing gardens - we hardly wanted to move away from the house and pool all week. The house was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities that you could possibly need. The house was furnished elegantly and attention to detail was everywhere. The location was perfect for us, peaceful and private yet only a short drive to some very good restaurants and traditional bars. We would definitely consider returning and will be recommending this property to family and friends.
Thank for you kind words!
This place is amazing, too much to tell but my advice would be book it if you get the chance. Gorgeous villa full of beautiful objects, artwork... The pool is stunning... Too much to mention... We had the most amazing time here. A heavenly oasis, but not too far from civilisation if you can bare to venture away from this most gorgeous retreat!
We like to see our guests as friends. This is our private home that we occasionally want to share with people who appreciate art and culture Thanks for the review(s)...
We never stayed in a more beautiful house. Very personal, very special, very comfortable. Absolutely top quality.
