Hidden amongst the gently rolling hills that fringe the picturesque village of Santa Bárbara de Nexe, this spacious country residence enjoys sweeping views across a swathe of open countryside towards Faro and the glistening blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Comfortably furnished, thoughtfully equipped and with a bright, colourful décor, Corvo is an appealing rural retreat in one of the most relaxed and attractive parts of the Algarve.
Exuding Algarvean charm the house façade is whitewashed for maximum cooling effect with each door and window frame highlighted in blue (together with a subtle touch of yellow this colour theme imaginatively continues throughout the attractive interior).
A timeworn carob-bean tree stands proudly by the front entrance, brightly coloured bougainvillea adorns the covered dining terrace and barbecue area while the extensive lawned grounds are awash with olive trees, palms, citrus and a wide variety of indigenous flowers and shrubs. South east facing and larger than average, the private pool is fringed by an expansive sun terrace and a comfortable outdoor living area from where those marvellous far reaching views can be easily admired.
Internally, spacious and airy living accommodation makes Corvo a more than welcoming home from home. Plump and comfortable sofas embellish the open plan living/dining area from where patio doors lead directly out to the pool area. A fully fitted kitchen and a utility room sit off the entrance hall with a conveniently placed cloakroom near the dining area. All four bedrooms occupy one end of the house; overlooking neatly trimmed lawns the principal double room has its own private terrace and en suite bathroom, a further double also has an en suite with two twins sharing a family bathroom.
For a little local flavour stroll 500m along to the simple country bar which offers very reasonably priced beverages and snacks or it is just 3km to the village of Santa Bárbara where you will find good amenities including a supermarket, chemist and several popular restaurants. Nearby Loulé (8km) and Olhão (17km) each boast bustling colourful covered markets selling, as they have done for centuries, the freshest of local produce including excellent fish and meat. A choice of sandy beaches lie within easy driving distance including two of the Algarve’s finest at fashionable Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo (18km).
Please note: The owners of Corvo respectfully request that guests refrain from smoking inside the house. The pool can be heated (minimum 36hrs notice to be fully effective) at a cost of €150 per week paid directly to the housekeeper.
