The Quinta de São Cucufate is a very private country house situated on two hectares, surrounded by mature gardens and its own almond orchard and olive grove. The house looks out through a colonnaded patio swathed in bougainvillea to the swimming pool and the sea beyond (300 m), with easy access to the coastal path and dramatic views to the cliffs and lighthouse of the Ponta da Piedade. Surrounding the pool are lawns, towering palms and two pergolas. Inside, the rooms are spacious and airy with high ceilings and furnished with old world charm. A grand central living and dining area connect two separate bedroom wings. Bathrooms and kitchen are decorated with Portuguese tile and marble. The kitchen is fully equipped adjoining a pantry/laundry room. The bedrooms are furnished with comfortable English mattresses. The entire house and most of the garden are on one level and are not overlooked. The roof terrace gives views of sea, countryside and mountain. The bedrooms, living room and kitchen have air conditioning units that heat or cool.

The patio has bench and armchair seating, reclining deck chairs, dining table with umbrella and a wheeled barbecue. The heated pool (9m x 5m) is private, surrounded by Portuguese paving and flanked by two lawns. The two vine-covered pergolas can be used for outdoor sitting and alfresco dining. To the side of the house is another, lower lawn surrounded with flowering shrubs and trees, making a peaceful refuge away from the pool or for children's games.

The beautiful sandy beaches of Praia da Luz and Porto de Mos with their restaurants and the town of Lagos and the Boavista golf course are all within a 10-15 min drive.

The Algarve region

The location of Quinta de Sao Cucufate just west of Porto de Mos is in an area of remarkable natural beauty, now protected from development. It contains old farm houses, fields and coppices of almond, fig and pistachio bounded on the south by dramatic cliffs and a coastal path leading to the popular beach town of Praia da Luz. The house is reached up a short country road and stands in a tiny hamlet of three other houses. Our managers live in the one next door.

A stroll out of the house toward the sea takes you to the coastal path which leads steeply down to the beach of Porto de Mos. A short drive to the beach car park is the easier approach! The beach is a beautiful stretch of golden sand well served by two good restaurants. A short drive (1-2 Kms) takes you into the charming port town Lagos with its many amenities.

The beautiful golf course of Boa Vista is within a 10 minute drive.
