Casinha da Lima, Belmonte
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Casinha da Lima is a small, modern house in the countryside of eastern part of Algarve, only 30 minutes from Faro airport. Car is recommended. It is lovely and cool in summer and warm and cosy in winter. The view from the roof-terrace is fantastic, over the billowing landscape with oliv-groves and oranges and the sea about one kilometer away. Very peaceful and quiet, but still only some kilometers away from several, small villages with nice restaurantes and supermarkets. Good area for walking and bicycling among olive groves and oranges. For longer winter stay - please contact, price is negotiable.
The house is situated on a small property with 2 houses: "Casinha da Lima" , and the main house "Casa do Limaô" where the owners are living. In the neibourhood are several other houses, with a good mix of portuguese and foreigners. Many of us are farmers in a small scale, and we have two cats, two dogs an five hens and a cock in our garden - all very friendly to everybody.
On the property is a beautiful garden and a peaceful, sheltered swimmingpool-area, shared by the 2 houses. Families with children of all ages love to stay at the poolside - even if there are wonderful beaches only 4-5 km away. During the two summers since the small house was built, already many small children have learnt to swim in the varm water in the pool!
The house is very comfortable, and contains everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The house is suitable for a family of 4-6, with one bedroom with a double bed and space for a baby cot, and a livingroom with a sofa bed for two. In the summer you can be six persons as you can also use an extra room with two beds adjoining the roof-terrace. If you need more bedrooms, or you are two familys who wants to stay together - there is a possibility to rent an apartment in the main house as a complement. It has a separate entrance, two bedrooms , two nice terraces, a bathroom and a kitchenette. There are also some other houses in the neigbourhood for rent - if you are many people.
If you have babies or small children - there is almost everything you need for example cot, pram, chairs, toys - just ask before you come. This will make the amount of luggage much smaller for a family.

The Algarve region
East Algarve is the less "touristic" part of the Algarve. It is more quite, but with wonderful, long sandy beaches. Casinha da Lima is near Ria do Formosa, a national reserv for birds and many special plants. It contains partly of long, sand-islands, that protect the area closer to the land from the, sometimes, wild sea.
These islands can be reached by walk, small train or boat. They have loooong beaches, where you can sunbathe, walk or swim - all alone if you want. Some of them has some small beach-cafees or restaurantes. In the summer more people, but in the winter almost empty. They are beautiful all year around!
Algarve is only 136 km / 85 miles from west to east, so everything is very close here. The nearest towns to us are Faro, Olhao and Tavira - very different from each other.
Faro, airport, big shopping-center, nice old town,, university, conserts, theater, harbour.
Olhao, big fishing-harbour, 2 nice "mercados" / market halls - one with only Fish!!!, a lovely Saturdaymorning fresh market outside the halls, very special, old parts with narrow streets
Tavira, an beautiful artistic little town with lots of churches, lots of restaurants and cafees - a bit more touristic than the others
Belmonte is situated in an area with very good climate ( warmer than the rest of the Algarve) and soil, so it is a farming-area with mostly olive, oranges and carob. You can also grow mangoes, papaya and bananas here, as we do! It is mostly portuguis around, but some foreigners, who have built houses in the country-side, most of them living here since many years back. You really get the feel of country-side, a little oldfashioned and quiet. You can see the sea some kilometers away almost everywhere, but it is sheltered enough not to get the cold winds that you get in the western parts of Algarve.
There are some small villages around, most of them with some simple, small shops, some cafees and maybe some restaurants - all very portuguis. The nearest ones to Casinha da Lima are Fuzeta, Moncarapacho and Luz de Tavira.
Fuzeta is the "Beach-Place", one nice beach in the village and a small boat to the Armona island with a marvelous long beach - you can walk for hours there. In Fuzeta there are some good restaurants too.
Moncarapacho is the "farming-village", many locals shopping there
Luz de Tavira, very sleepy little portuguis village, but with a famous Church.
Coming here is no "party-holiday". It is peaceful, very suitable for people who wants to see something outside the common tourist-places, and see a bit of the real Portugal!
