Description of the house

Casinha da Serra is new at Portucasa. It is a very tastefully decorated and comfortable modern house from where you can walk right into nature and to the swimming pool. You have a beautiful view of the hills of a nature reserve with pine trees, cork oaks and eucalyptus trees. The house covers the lower part of an architect designed split-level villa built in 2016. Apart from Casinha da Serra, the entire villa also consists of an upper and front house surrounded by 5,000 m2 of own land. The upper house is occasionally occupied by the Dutch owners. The front house (Casa Fonte, please check our website, where you will also find reviews about the accommodation) can also be rented, to a maximum of 4 people. Casinha da Serra is located below the top house and has full privacy.

From 1 June to 1 October Casinha da Serra is rented out exclusively. This means that during that period you are the only guest and Casa Fonte remains empty. You can therefore also choose to stay at Casa Fonte (prices are the same during that period). In the other weeks there may be other guests at Casa Fonte. Because of the distance between and the location of both houses and private terraces which are part of each house, you will hardly ever run into the other guests.

The front of Casinha da Serra consists of glass sliding doors. It has a spacious terrace directly next to the swimming pool where there is plenty of sun during the summer, and the protrusion offers shade which you can also sit in. A little lower across from the house is a lawn for sunbathing which is also the entrance to the house. The house has an ample bedroom, again with a beautiful view of the hills, with a king-size bed and a bathroom en-suite. The spacious living room and dining area with kitchen has been tastefully decorated. Due to the north-eastern location the rooms are cool and extremely suitable for the warm summer months. The house is also suitable for hibernators; it is well insulated and has heating.

Casinha da Serra has WiFi, Dutch TV stations and a SONOS sound system.
It is 20 metres to the parking area and can be reached via an exterior staircase.
The swimming pool is purified with magnesium. It is therefore anti-allergenic and very beneficial to the skin.

Surroundings Casinha da Serra

Although the property is in the middle of nature, it is centrally located and very accessible. From Faro airport is only 20 minutes drive to the house and the different coasts can be reached in half an hour.
This delightful luxury holiday home is on the edge of an authentic Algarve village with a church, a sheep herd and two cafes. In the immediate surroundings you can go mountain biking, horseback riding and hiking. In the nature reserve park - 15 minutes walk from the house - is a picknick spot with a nice cafe where you can have drinks, ice creams and some tapas. Mountain bikes are available for rent and can be delivered to the home. There is a riding school in the village. The nature reserve located at the corner with picnic areas that are very popular, especially in the summer weekends, with Portuguese families. 
A 5-minute drive and you can do excellent shopping in the provincial town of Sao Bras de Alportel, with four large supermarkets and a covered food market on Saturday.
Sao Bras de Alportel and the surrounding area has a good choice of restaurants. Loulé is a fifteen minute drive and with its monumental indoor market and lively tourist streets a popular daytime destination.
The various beaches of the beautiful Ria Formosa can be reached in half an hour, as is the famous coastal towns of Tavira, Olhão and Faro. From here you can take a ferry to one of the islands off the coast. Because of the central location of the apartment you are half an hour away from the upscale Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago beaches, many golf courses and upscale restaurants. If you choose the northern route, you pass through a beautiful hilly landscape and you’re only an hour from internationally renowned wineries of the Alentejo: definitely worth a day trip.
Of the many tourists visiting the Algarve in the high season, you notice little at Casa Fonte Grande, but if you want you are in the hustle and bustle within half an hour.

Casa Fonte Grande provides the perfect base for a wonderful holiday for both holiday makers and for nature lovers, rest seekers, the creative person or the sportsman!
