Pool, hot tub, play park, bar and a sensational panorama from the farmhouse terrace. Lively beaches too, for these rustic-modern cottages...

The road is steep but the views spilling over the Atlantic take your breath away – blue, sparkling, unbroken. This old Portuguese farmhouse and its outbuildings have been sensitively converted and extended. Rooms have a rustic, modern simplicity: solid wood furniture, pretty tiles, embroidered cushions, colourful pottery. There are wood-burning stoves and microwaves, shelves of books, private terraces and barbecues; it's sophisticated yet cosy. For complete privacy, choose Casa do Forno, the converted bread oven; tiny, gorgeous, intimate, it is the ultimate in ergonomic design. Although temptingly near lively beaches and Loulé town, it's hard to drag yourself away from those views: the roof terrace has a horizon-wide panorama from the foothills of Monchique all the way to the Algarve coast. A terraced garden, swimming pool, hot tub and shady patio bar add to the choice of places to linger; feel yourself unwind. Rosa and Mike welcome young families and have their own: there's a play park and tons of baby equipment, and nappies in the welcome pack!

  • Loulé carnival is the oldest carnival in Portugal; 3 days of celebration. Most definitely one not to miss, finishing on Shrove Tuesday. Our cottages are so close so easy to get to, and a member of the team plays part in the Carnival every year.
  • Loulé is a traditional Portuguese market town with its famous fish, meat and veg market and a gypsy market. Saturday is the day to be in Loule, a hive of activity.
  • Great area for walking and bird watching - we are happy to organise specialised holidays or day tours if required.
  • Traditional home cooked Portuguese Meal service with wine served in your own private accommodation - great way to finish off you day and admire the breathtaking sunsets from our lofty setting.
  • Daily continental breakfast basket now served in your own private accommodation - ready when you are. A great way to start the day.
  • Children under 2 stay for free and we can provide baby equipment free of charge, provide a baby welcome hamper with your requested items available for your arrival and arrange child minding / baby sitting.
