The convenience of this location, choice of facilities on offer and quality of finish to both the interior and exterior makes Casa do Sol, without doubt, one of the most impressive properties we have discovered on this privileged coastline. There is, in fact, so much to admire it is difficult to know where to start! Spacious, thoughtfully designed, comfortably furnished and decorated with extreme taste and care, the house sits in beautifully kept, private grounds that are home to a lovely private pool, separate (heated) children’s pool and private all weather tennis court. Further additions to this already impressive list of attributes are eye-catching views to the Atlantic Ocean from the grounds and many rooms, the sandy, blue flag beach of Olhos d'Agua within 1.5km, golf within 2km and a selection of excellent amenities including a large supermarket and several restaurants within walking distance.
Electric entrance gates usher you into the grounds and onto a cobbled driveway that sweeps up to a large front parking area. Attention to detail in every part of Casa do Sol is enviable and it is very quickly apparent that the styling of the house bears the hallmark of an owner with considerable taste. The ground floor rooms radiate off the entrance hall in several directions creating an air of grandeur and reinforcing the feeling of spaciousness that pervades this fine home.
The imposing living room is very comfortably furnished with plump sofas, striking artwork and many tasteful decorative touches. Doors lead out to the terrace and garden from here and from the large dining room alongside. Both of these rooms also boast a vaulted, antique-style Portuguese ceiling, an eye-catching and traditional feature emblematic of so many of the region’s finest quintas. The kitchen, in turn, is another good size room, well equipped and with plenty of worktop space for easy, large party catering. A dedicated dining terrace with in built barbecue sits off here.
All six bedrooms are equally well appointed, each featuring a tasteful and distinctive colour scheme, en suite bath or shower room and independent air conditioning. Just a few steps from the house front door a separate, self contained studio/apartment adds flexibility to the choice of sleeping options for large sharing parties or maybe a family with older children seeking a degree of independence.
The property’s two private pools and tennis court are bordered by lawn, sun terraces, flower beds, oleanders and mature palms. A choice of open and covered terraces continues the sense of space experienced inside and means a quieter spot to yourself can easily be found if required, perhaps for a little holiday reading or post-prandial siesta.
Full of life, vibrant Olhos d'Agua has grown up around a gorgeous sandy beach and, within walking distance of the house, offers virtually all the amenities needed to make the most of your holiday (although, tucked away in your own private oasis behind the walls of Casa do Sol, you would not realise they were there!).
Parties paying the 10 person rate will have access to the main house only. Parties paying the 12 person rate will have access to the main house and suite. Maid service three days per week. The owners of Casa do Sol respectfully request that guests do not smoke inside the house.
