Further details indoors

Magnificent Moorish tiled steps lead guests through double oak doors into an impressive 20' hallway with terracotta tiles, hanging tapestries, medieval lights and high arched ceilings. The comfortable sitting room with its overstuffed sofas and woodburning stove set into the enormous stone fireplace is an ideal retreat for 40 winks. 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.

Further details outdoors

The Manoir is set in 24,000 sq meters of gardens and woodland. The large lawned area is framed by fig, oleander and cactus. There is a pizza oven and BBQ set into the old chimney and another BBQ behind the pergola. The full size heated pool is beautifully tiled and set in the original walled garden. The lovely poolside shower is lined with antique Portugese tiles. By the pool is a Pergola with wooden refectory table, chairs and built in seating for an evening gin and tonic or al fresco dining.

There is another lovely terrace with pergola off the kitchen with seating for 10 in the original tiled seating set into the wall with superb views across the Algarve hills down towards the coast. This steps back onto the lawned area. The gardens are a riot of colour at any time of year!

Location description from owner

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.
