Neatly tucked away within an extensive ‘quinta’ of open land, citrus, olive, fig and almond trees this simply-styled and unassuming country cottage enjoys distant ocean views and a convenient location near the picturesque family resort of Carvoeiro. The Stables (yes it is a former horse stable!), caters to anyone seeking a tranquil, unpretentious and quirky holiday base while at the same time wishing to remain close to the Algarve’s many coastal attractions.
Sitting invitingly in front of the cottage the private pool is bordered by an abundance of colourful flowers, palms, shrubs and cacti with ancient olive and carob trees offering additional shaded areas by the summer house. Two separate dining areas provide excellent space for enjoying al fresco meals during warm summer evenings.
Overlooking the pool a broad front terrace gives direct access into a compact, open plan living area where the imposing fireplace with 16th Century azulejo-tiled surround is fringed by an attractive, if somewhat eclectic, mix of furnishings.
Interesting and eclectic, decorative features include abstract oil paintings, an original Arraiolos tapestry and a large collection of English-language books spanning many genres. To one side of the living area the small, well equipped kitchen is designated by a breakfast bar and has direct access out to a side dining/barbecue terrace.
A mini-market, several cafes and a popular restaurant are within walking distance while three large supermarkets, tennis courts and a gymnasium (hourly charges) are within a five minute drive. The six beaches of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo, some of the most iconic along the Algarve with pretty coves, golden sands and clear waters are just a few minutes further. Pay a visit to the old Algarvean capital of Silves (20km) to enjoy a walk along the river bank and a gentle wander through the old Moorish streets surrounding the imposing red stone castle.
The front/side terrace is somewhat uneven and would not be ideal for younger children or anyone unsteady on their feet. Pool heating (if desired) is available at a cost of €150 per week (minimum 24hrs needed to be fully effective) paid directly to the housekeeper. Laundry service (if desired) can be arranged directly with the housekeeper (reasonable use is free of charge).
