Superb 3 Bedroom Villa in Portugal
Superb 3 Bedroom Villa in Portugal
Casa ABC is on its own plot of land of 880,00 sq. m. completely surrounded by a fairly high wall, making it very private and secluded. The garden has been laid to calçada (portuguese cobbles) with plant beds supporting mature trees including Carob, Olive, Orange, Loquat and other fruit varieties. We love our sub-tropical plants and shrubs including cacti, and bougainvillea, and our temperate climate plants - wisteria, honeysuckle, roses and many others. The swimming pool, with its quaint little corner roofed shade and gazebo, is surrounded by a large terrace constructed from locally made Santa Catarina tiles. The pathways surrounding the house are made using traditional cobblestones and also Santa Catarina tiles.
If you like walking you can take advantage of this activity in all directions from the main gate. Bird-watchers will love the buzzards, little owls, egrets, hoopoos, swallows, jays, azure winged magpies, and our golden oriole (papa figo, he loves figs!) who sings his haunting, liquid-gold song in the trees around.
Here we feel close to the natural order of things, earth moon and stars. Inserted into the calçada is an 8 point compass to reflect Tom's nautical background and also a 5 point pentacle to honour the elements - Fire, Earth, Sky, Water, Air. The night sky here is "heavenly" as there is no light pollution - amateur astronomers will be very attracted.
Making music with drums, flutes and singing is one of our favourite pastimes - and here there are no neighbours within annoying range. Writers of poetry and books will find peace and solitude and painters will be inspired to creativity by the ever-changing vistas.
We have had wonderful parties here entertaining friends of many nationalities, all of whom have said how much they loved it. What a beautiful spot!
We shall leave the furniture included in the new fixed price €350,000, which reflects the upgrading and improvements which we have made, such as insulation of the ceilings on the inside of the house, new drains, new windows and doors and electric shutters and shades, as well as a ramp to enable disabled access and a complete reconstruction of the garden and pool area.

The Algarve is the southernmost region of continental Portugal. It has an area of 4,997 km2 (1,929 sq mi) with 451,006 permanent inhabitants, and incorporates 16 municipalities. The region has its administrative centre in the city of Faro, where both the region's international airport (IATA: FAO) and public university, the University of Algarve, are located. Tourism and related activities are extensive and make up the bulk of the Algarve's summer economy. Production of food, which includes fish and other seafood, different types of fruit such as oranges, figs, plums, carob beans, and almonds, are also economically important in the region. Although Lisbon surpasses the Algarve in terms of tourism revenue,the Algarve is still, overall, considered to be the biggest and most important Portuguese tourist region, having received an estimated total of 7.1 million tourists in 2017.Its population triples in the peak holiday season due to seasonal residents. The Algarve is also increasingly sought after, mostly by central and northern Europeans, as a permanent place to settle. A 2016 American-based study concluded that the Algarve was the world's best place to retire.
