Just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport, this rather unspoilt area of the Algarve is close to excellent beaches and golf facilities yet retains a sleepy charm, with small white washed villages, friendly locals and many inexpensive restaurants nearby.
There are several places of interest to visit nearby such as the quaint village of Alte, the Baroque palace of Estoi, and the market town of Loule. Great buys from Portuguese markets include dried fruit and nuts, marzipan cakes, pottery leather goods and kitchen/household items in brass, copper and pewter. The Spanish border and Seville are also only a short driving distance away and well worth a visit. As its name suggests, this property is situated adjacent to an orange grove. It benefits from several terraces, designed to make to most of its peaceful country location and views, including a small lawned area at the front of the property, perfect for early evening drinks while watching dusk fall over coastal lights on the horizon.
There is a covered terraced for dining outdoors with built-in barbecue area immediately outside the kitchen, as well as a second barbecue terrace at the rear. Within the terraced Mediterranean garden with olive trees there is also a swimming pool (10 x 4.90m). Recently refurnished throughout, Casa das Laranjeiras is all on one level and has terracotta tiled floors and wooden shutters on all the windows.
The property is further equipped with satellite TV, DVD, a music system and Wi-Fi internet access.
There are ceiling fans in all bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. Further amenities include an all weather tennis court, gym equipment (treadmill and rowing machine and sauna/shower room, shared with the next door property, Quinta da Caida, which is also available for rent.
A baby cot and high chair are available on request.
