Little house on the Prairie: there is a garden, space and nature
Casa Camoes is for carefree simple holidays....with that all important swimming pool! A detached village house in Poco dos Ferrerios ( The Farriers Well ) about 20 minutes from Faro airport by car and 15 minutes to Loule and a few minutes from Sao Bras d'Alportel. The village is typical of the area with local residents and visitors all year around. The rural villages aound Sao Bras d' Alportel are awash with traditional farming activities and traditions , quite unspoiled in comparison to the more developed towns and villages along the coastal strip of the Algarve 20 minutes drive away.
This is the place to holiday when you would rather see than be seen, listen than be heard and relax rather than be entertained. Opposite Casa Camoes, beside the village well, Signora Vitalina sells homegrown fruit and vegetables and there is an excellent restaurant to walk to in this tucked away valley close to Sao Bras D' Alportel, with another in the neighbouring village and all shopping needs met in the local market town five minutes bike ride away.
The layout of bedrooms, three downstairs and upstairs , one very large airconditioned room that can be used as a Yoga Studio or Chillax space or similar ( I use it for therapy groups and great dinners!) with balcony upstairs is also ideal for friends and family . The external staircase is steep though so upstairs is not suitable for infants or the infirm. Generally, think country cottage rather than swanky villa! ....well, except for the pool terrace, which was redesigned recently and now provides a lovely outlook over our Fig Orchard.
