Quinta da Barroqueira
Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This farmhouse apartment has views extending to the far ocean and acres of countryside farm land. The scent of the ancient carob trees and rosemary join with the welcoming breeze during the summer months. When in season, fruit and products of the farm are available to guests - the fig tree orchard starts at the back of the house.
Plenty of terraces, patios, lounging areas for sunbathing, eating, reading, or just retreating to enjoy the sounds of the cicadas and birds. The children have safe and extensive areas to run, play and swim in the one level pool (no deeper than 2m).
Step into another world - the locals still go about their business as generations ago, the cafes are welcoming ... a real taste of the Algarve. This is the perfect spot for a longer, relaxing stay - to get-away from it all and recharge batteries.
Nearby beaches: Fuzeta, Barril.
The little village of Estiramantens is mid-way from Moncarapacho and Santo Estevão and the motorway is just 10 mins drive, an easy access to the rest of the Algarve and neighboring Spain. From here to Seville is an easy one-day trip.

The Algarve region
The East Algarve is the quieter part of the Algarve with uncrowded beaches, little villages, rich agricultural tradition with authentic traditional rural feel citrus, vines, almonds and olive trees.
This is the area of the famous Ria Formosa, a protected national park of sand bars and islands. Between these islands and the mainland are large areas of dunes and lagoons, small sand isles, mud flats and canals, providing a wonderful habitat for wildlife, flora and fauna, sealife and birds. Along the coast line is the Via Algarviana - a wonderful path for cyclist and walkers.
The nearest village is Moncarapacho, 10 minutes drive away, where you can find supermarkets, restaurants, banks and a pharmacy. Olhão is a busy town 20 minutes drive to the west with a large fishing fleet and daily market. Fuzeta also has a great monthly car boot market. Tavira town is about 20 minutes drive east - a must! the small town has 43 churches!
There is an extensive network of roads and the N125 is of easy acess.
This is an area quite near the border of Portugal and Spain - the Guardiana River divides the two countries and tour boats sail daily upriver from Vila Real de San Antonio.
Spain is about a 35 min drive east (52Km), across the Guardiana River - there is a bridge or a ferry. Seville can be reached in about 2 hours and Gibraltar 4hr drive.
