Description of the house
Quinta do Calderão is a beautiful, newly renovated (2015) eco-lodge in a great location. This eco house gets its hot water (for heating etc.) from solar panels. The thick walls (70 cm thick) and cork insulation on the roof provide a good living environment. The pool is cleaned by means of a saline solution. Water comes from the own wellbore.
The house sits on a plot of 20,000 m2 and is surrounded by approximately 300 orange, fig and olive trees. There is a beautiful lawn where children can play. You can cool down in the lovely pool (9x4 m, 1.5m deep). Those who love to cook can of course go to the large open kitchen inside, but cooking in the outdoor kitchen in also quite an experience!
It is a very spacious holiday home (200 m2) with high ceilings and modern decor. Because of the thick walls it is pleasantly cool in the summer. In winter the wood stove in the living room and radiators in the bedrooms provide warmth.
Here you have total peace and privacy. A place to recharge, relax or maybe sometimes to visit the lively seaside!
The historic town of Silves is 10 km away. This lively small town has interesting attractions, museums, narrow streets, authentic cafés and restaurants. Silves is on a hill between the foothills of the Serra de Monchique. Also worth a visit is the medieval red Moorish castle. You´ll find everything you need for all your groceries, post office, bank etc.
A little closer, some 6 km away, is Messines. This is still a very original Portuguese town where you can buy all your groceries. In the morning it is a wonderful place for shopping in the covered market.
The coast, 25 minutes away, offers long sandy beaches, coves, rocky beaches and quaint tourist towns such as Carvoeiro, Armacao de Pera and Albufeira.
The central location of Quinta do Calderão is a perfect starting point for tours in the hinterland of the Serra do Caldeirão, Alentejo and the Costa Vicentina rugged west coast.
