Description of the house

Architecturally renovated house, stylish and spacious. Only 10 minutes from sea.

Casa de Alfarroba is a really beautiful former Portuguese cottage, restored and renovated with care by the Dutch architect and owner. The modern house accommodates a maximum of 6 people and is located at only 20 minutes from Faro airport. The generously sized swimming pool and the terraces form a natural unit with the 2600 m2 garden which grows magnificent old Alfarroba trees (Carob trees). This is also a wonderful place to have a pleasant meal and barbecue outside. On the large covered front terrace you can enjoy your breakfast or an afternoon drink in the shelter of the Alfarroba trees and with a view of the gorgeous garden.

The house has an unobstructed view of the surroundings and of the sea on the horizon.

You enter the very spacious and high ceiling living room containing a wood stove, dining area and open kitchen. This fully equipped modern kitchen invites you to prepare meals using local ingredients. There are 3 bedrooms each with their own bathroom. All rooms are situated on one level and are tastefully and fully furnished. Large spaces up to approx. 4.5 meters high and beautiful light characterise this residence.

Surroundings of Casa de Alfarroba

Casa de Alfarroba is set in the countryside, 20 minutes from Faro airport and 4 kilometres from the coastal town of Olhão. This part of the Algarve has about 3000 hours sun per year and no mass tourism or high rises are found here. Here one returns to the authenticity and simplicity of yesteryear. The nature, the small towns and the coast are excellent for a varied holiday. Olhão is Portugal’s most important fishing port. Each day you can admire the catch in the indoor market halls and enjoy it in the many restaurants. Further east are the beautiful towns of Fuseta and Tavira. You can take a ferry to one of the many islands in the protected Ria Formosa lagoon landscape, which sometimes may remind you of stretches of beach in more northern countries and sometimes of the tropical Caribbean.

This is where you can enjoy both the idyllic lagoon beaches and the wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Ria Formosa is also a breeding place for water birds and perfectly suited for beautiful walks, boat trips and bike rides. Golfers will be happy to find a number of 18-hole courses in the area.

You will find the quiet hilly landscape of Alentejo, with its internationally renowned vineyards and agricultural district, unfolding just a few kilometres to the north of Casa de Alfarroba.
