Description of the house

It is hard to find a holiday home that is closer by the sea than Casa da Formosa. At 50 metres to the right of the house is the nearest beach. You literally walk from the living room through the garden into the water (at high tide..). This lovely, spacious 2 person holiday home seems simple on the outside but is modern and fully furnished, with a light living room giving access to the south and west facing garden which ends at the water. Underneath the wooden pergola outside you can sit comfortably in the shade with a view of the garden and the water. In front of the house you can enjoy the clear sea air and the spectacular view of the lagoon from your south facing lounger. Part of the living room is a well-equipped semi open kitchen with a lunch counter. The bedroom has a double bed and the bathroom is fully and luxuriously furnished. This house is also suitable to stay in during winter, it can be properly heated and has special winter rates starting from 3 weeks.

Behind the house, and part of the large garden is a joint herb/vegetable garden with fruit trees which is occasionally used by the small community. You are also allowed to pick the fruit!

Surroundings of Casa da Formosa

Here you are really part of the authentic Algarvarian culture. Casa da Formosa lies between the fishing towns of Olhão and Fuseta, at a 20 minutes’ drive from Faro airport. The house is part of a small, rustic community where a number of holiday homes alternate with a few traditional houses owned by fishermen and local Algarvians. It is not busy here, not even in summer. A small number of – mainly Portuguese and a few foreign – seaside visitors know this spot. During the weekends and holidays entire Portuguese families go for a swim in the sea and have an old-fashioned barbecue at the fishermen’s houses on the beach. Because the Portuguese are friendly and quiet people, you will feel very much at ease here. At a 10 minutes’ drive you find the lively Olhão with its monumental vegetable and fish market and numerous restaurants. On the other side at a 10 minutes’ drive lies Fuseta, which has a nice little beach and from where you can take a ferry – just like from Olhão – to visit islands with beautiful long stretches of beach. Finally, Tavira which is also nearby: just under fifteen minutes by car and you find yourself in this lovely historical town with its river and estuary to the sea. In the evenings there is a lot of activity. Ferries to the islands depart from here as well. The beaches in this area are numerous and many are particularly suitable for small children.

Layout

You can park your car at the house. Casa da Formosa is a detached house, surrounded by a large garden which stretches out to the lagoon. You enter via the kitchen door into the open kitchen with on the right hand side the living room. Through the living room you walk via an open hallway to the bedroom with a double bed and the spacious bathroom with rain shower. In the garden you will find a cosy pergola with dining table, there are also a hammock and 2 loungers. To the east of the house (you can’t see it) and behind the house along the vegetable garden runs a grass path (not for cars) leading to holiday home Casa da Ria, 40 metres down the road, which can also be rented through Portucasa.
