Description of the house
Casa Andorinha is on a splendid location at the foot of the lush Monchique mountain range (900m). This house set in an authentic rural landscape and¬†away from mass tourism, is an ideal place for those who like tranquillity and space.
Casa Andorinha has an extraordinary design. On the gallery above the kitchen/diner is the lounge area. The house is on a 4 ha plot of land, and¬†has been built¬†against the house of the Dutch owners, without any loss of privacy. Also for rent on this plot is Casa Touril, at a distance of approx. 150 m.
The view from the terrace over the valley to the mountain range is fascinating! Within walking distance is a wide river, great for a swim in summer. On the estate you can also swim in the lake measuring 20x20 m. The lake is filled with natural spring water and ideal for an invigorating swim.
The surroundings take you back in time: farmers still use donkeys to work their land; horse and carriage are still a widely used means of transport. There are various hiking routes in the area, that lead you along ancient walled fields with fruit trees, through the woods with cork oaks, to healing springs and through lush mountain paths with panoramic views.
