Enjoying a gently elevated hillside position This Casa enjoys the most marvellous, sweeping 270° views across open countryside to the sea and inland towards the Monchique Mountains. This very attractive and welcoming country house is spacious, exceedingly well proportioned and beautifully kept. The exterior colour scheme of white with blue trim contrasts vividly with the ochre hues of the terracotta roof tiles providing a striking first impression as you approach.
The generous living/dining room is very comfortably furnished, with eye-catching local fabrics and smart conker-red floor tiles. Light and airy, two pairs of glass panelled doors lead onto a broad covered terrace overlooking the garden. The kitchen alongside the dining area is another sizeable space and a chef’s delight with its comprehensive inventory and excellent range of modern, fitted equipment.
Flowing easily over two floors in one wing of the house are four of the bedrooms; the principal bedroom boasting its own balcony from which commanding views can be enjoyed across the grounds and surrounding countryside to the coast. Two beautiful suites located just a few steps away in the meticulously landscaped garden create a number of convenient options for sharing families or groups of friends seeking an added degree of privacy. All nine bedrooms are very tastefully appointed with their own en suite bath or shower room, as well as individual air conditioning.
Montanha’s well established grounds are large and luxuriant with rockeries, mature shrubs, a fenced pond, much larger than average private swimming pool, a separate, dedicated children’s pool and in built barbecue. Completing first-class facilities, a magnificent poolside games room provides the perfect shady retreat for both children and adults alike.
Several country restaurants, bars and basic shops can be found in and around Boliqueime (4km) and Paderne (8km) with the famous sandy beaches of the Algarve coastline just 14km. Head south to one of our favourite beaches, Praia dos Barcos and at the eastern end of the beach, look out for the colourful fishing boats that bring in the daily catch.
