The oak beamed ceiling continues into the formal dining room with large oak refectory table, seating for 10 and is a delight with colourful rugs and antique dressers. The shuttered windows have panoramic views across the surrounding hills. The superb kitchen with double height galleried ceiling is the hub of the house with wooden refectory table and huge inglenook fireplace with antique agricultural tools which show the history of the house All the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and are beautifully furnished to an exceptional standard. The Master Bedroom has air conditioning and the rest have high ceiling fans which is sufficient to keep the rooms cool thanks to the thickness of the original stone walls.

The Algarve region

The central Algarve is where you will find some of Europe's most spectacular coastline and beaches and with more sunshine hours than anywhere else in Europe.

Even in mid-winter you will be guaranteed a temperate climate and an unforgettable holiday.

Whether you are looking for a beach holiday or water-sports, sailing and golf, you won't be disappointed.

Sao Bras de Alportel

The Manoir nestles on a lush, herb covered hillside between the coast and the mountains near to the market towns of Loule and Sao Bras de Alportel.

This is the secret heart of the Algarve where wild almond, fig and pomegranate trees grow around villages whose simple charms and whitewashed houses give the feeling of having stepped back in time.

There are numerous small towns and fishing villages on the coast between Faro and the Spanish border – particularly worth visiting is Olhao, which is renowned for its fish market and numerous seafood restaurants, and the elegant town of Tavira with its roman bridge spanning the water and riverside restaurants.

There is lots of water parks and entertainment for children – the Waterslide Park at Quarteira and the very popular Zoomarine at Guia which is close to Albufeira, where there are dolphin displays, seals and sea lions and fascinating tropical birds.
