A Casa do Campo has two units: a large three bedroomed farmhouse and a one bedroomed annexe let exclusively to the group renting the main house.
Price quoted is for six-eight people. Discounted price available for smaller parties.
The spacious authentic rustic farmhouse and the annexe, both artistically and lovingly restored, offer beautiful countryside mountain views. The original features have been painstakingly and stylishly updated with typical Portuguese style windows (shielded by anti-insect screens), doors and cane ceilings. There is air-conditioning in every bedroom.
Drive through the automatic gates and park off-road; nearby is the roofed outdoor living room overlooking the (8m x 3.5m) pool on a sunny terrace with pretty Portuguese tiles and comfortable outdoor furniture. Look across to country views and relax on the cushioned rattan suites, ideal for sipping a cool drink, reading a book, playing games or just chatting with friends. For sun-worshippers there are plenty of rattan sunbeds, stylish cushions, side tables and parasols for lounging around the pool.
Up some steps at the front of the house is another long upper terrace with far reaching mountain views (on a clear day you can see the sea) and a huge barbecue tucked around the side.
A chunky farmhouse table and benches near both the barbecue and the kitchen gives 8 people lots of room for relaxed al fresco dining, shaded if required by a large awning and umbrellas.
Inside The Main House:
The new and well-equipped architect-designed "eat in" kitchen (with round table seating eight for relaxed indoor conviviality) and separate utility room with fridge and essential ice machine are conveniently near the al fresco eating area.
Although the Main House only sleeps six, there is ample seating for eight in the kitchen, the living room, barbecue area and outdoor living room by the pool.
There are double doors from the terrace to the large, bright and airy living room and a twin room with house bathroom further along and a staircase up to the top floor.
The top floor houses the double bedded ensuite master bedroom on one side of the staircase and on the other is a large double room with a double and a single bed and its own bathroom nearby. The house laptop with free wifi and basic printer sit quietly in the hallway in front of a bright window with pretty views - a quiet away-from-it-all spot for browsing. Childproof gates are available to be fitted if required at both the top and foot of the stairs.
Inside The Annexe:
A Casinha do Campo, or "The Annexe" is only rented out as an extension to the Main house and is not available for independent lets. It lies down some steps from the Main House. The previous owner of "A Casa do Campo" ran the Annexe as a B&B so it is fully equipped for independent living while being close enough to the Main House so that guests in the Annexe don't feel excluded in any way.
There's a large double bed, traditional built-in wardrobes and units and in the far corner is a fridge, kettle and larder space. .
A good sized shower room with WC completes the self-contained amenities.
The Annexe has its own little terrace with mountain views, two sunbeds and overlooks the pool - it's slightly set apart but not so much that you miss out on any fun!
The Annexe has complete access to all the amenities inside and outside the Main House, as described above.
