From the owner

Quinta da Mimosa is located close to the popular Spa village of Caldas de Monchique, in the beautiful foothills of the Monchique mountains. The villa is only about 120 metres above sea level, while the mountains themselves soar to nearly 1000 metres and form a picturesque backdrop. Roads lead right up to the top of this highest point in The Algarve and the views are nothing short of spectacular.

The nearest big town, only about a 15 minute drive away is the fishing port of Portimao. Here, you will not only find a lively waterfront and dozens of places to wine and dine among the quaint cobbled streets and attractive gardens and squares. But, if you prefer, there are also large modern shopping centres with plenty of free parking.

Quinta da Mimosa is tucked away from its neighbours about 200 yards down the driveway and you could easily imagine you are alone in the world.in this magical spot with its pretty stream running though the garden. Yet it is not at all remote as restaurants are within 50 yards of the gateway and several other big towns and nightlife (if you want it) only about a 20 minute trip by car.

The villa has four bedrooms,four bathrooms (2 with baths and 2 with showers). There are three balconies and two patios plus the pool area and barbeque. The living area is a huge open plan room with wood burning stove and satellite TV. There is a separate dining room and the kitchen has direct access to one of the patios. If you enjoy walking, footpaths from the property lead to trails that cover the whole Monchique eco zone. For shopping, Monchique has an excellent supermarket and numerous small shops, while the large fishing port of Portimao is only about 18km away. Buses stop nearby for Monchique or Portimao, but a car is recommended.

Further details indoors

Double doors from the entrance porch lead into the huge open plan hallway and living room with twin marble staircases that lead to the upper floors. Two three piece suites give comfortable sitting space and one of these also has a sofa bed in case you need a downstairs bed. The 50" flat screen smart TV has a UK satellite channels, A European cable service plus a DVD player. There is a large wood burning heater and french doors to a patio. A ground floor bathroom has wc, washbasin, bidet and hyrotherapy shower with lots of jets, fancy lighting and a radio!. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped and has a door to another patio and deck with space for outdoor dining as well a firepit. The dining room also has french doors to the same patio. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a small balcony and an en-suite bathroom with bath (+ shower), washbasin, bidet and wc. There is a king size double bed and space for a roll away bed or a cot. The other double room has a double bed and space for either a cot or roll away single bed. It also has a huge balcony terrace. The twin room has two single beds that can be pushed together and a small balcony. Close to these two rooms there is another bathroom which has a bath with shower, washbasin, biet and wc. From the landing, stairs lead to another bedroom which is nearly circular. This has twin beds which can also go together and an en-suite shower room with washbasin and wc. Outside, the swimming pool terrace has sun loungers and a very nice BBQ plus table and chairs. The pool is approximately 10 metres x 5 metres shaped like a figure 8. It is about 1 metre deep at the shallow end and 2 metres at the deep end. There is a circular jacuzzi style bubble pool with a waterfall to the main pool. The pool terrace has a gate for safety. There is plenty of parking space outside the house and a pretty garden with palm trees. A rough pathway leads to a wooden bridge which spans the stream to a picturesque walk through the trees. This leads to the hill which is part of the villas grounds and then beyond to the mountain walks..The maid comes in most weekday mornings

Smoking is not permitted indoors but is ok on the terraces and patios.

Further details outdoors

This is a very private property. From the main road, gates lead to the gravel driveway which winds its way for about 200 yards to the villa. On the way, you pass beautiful mimosa trees and the ancient ruin of a farmhouse and then as you turn to the right, the villa and pool come into view. The house is built on one of several large plateaus that lead down to a stream. Most of the land you can see from the villa, belongs to it, right up to the hilltop, which keeps it very secluded, but it is not remote with restaurants just a few metres from the driveway. Caldas de Monchique is a unique spa village a couple of km up the road and must be visited. Big towns, nightlife, golf courses and the new formula 1 racetrack are all within about a 20 minute drive as are some lovely beaches.

Interaction with guest

Check-in can be any time after 14.30 on arrival day and check out must be by 10.30 am on departure day. Keys will either be handed over by the maid or can be collected and returned to a coded key safe in the porch. As the villa is thoroughly cleaned and aired between bookings, it is unlikely you will be able to take it over if you arrive before the 14.30 check in time (unless pre-arranged). However, if you arrive close to lunch time, why not take advantage of a snack or lunch at one of the very nearby restaurantes.
