This is the heart of the property, hence the large round family table with chairs and antique teakwood benches, with seating for 10 or more. The open plan kitchen is offering modern steam oven, induction cooking, all kitchen appliances, red and black granite dresser and hand painted tiles and an open fire place. Large wooden French doors open up to a pergola covered terrace with tables (wrought iron and glass) and chairs for 10 to 12 people. The large stairway in the hall takes you up to a vide with library, underneath the wood feature ceiling with indirect lighting and from there via the landing to the cozy living room with seating around an open fire. Two large balconies offer views over the rolling hills and to the sea. Double French doors take you out on to a partly covered wide terrace with outside pantry. From here you have an almost 360 degrees view. A few steps down from here and you are at the pool area, which because of the sloping land is also only a few steps from the ground floor level.

About the neighbourhood
Moncarapacho Algarve - a rural retreat but with easy access to the beaches and the Eastern Algarve Moncarapacho is a small country village in the eastern Algarve not far from Faro. It is set in beautiful countryside which is home to growers of oranges, lemons and figs, and the area is also a big producer of flowers. The village itself is situated 8km northeast of Olhao and about 10km east of Estoi.  Being in the less commercialised Eastern Algarve, the area is quite quiet. Being a rural village, Moncarapacho is certainly not overrun by holidaymakers, although it is becoming a more popular destination along with a few of its neighbouring villages. The real attraction of the village is its relaxed and friendly
Getting around
Monte das Figueiras is designed by the owners, a creative couple from Holland. Christian, former owner and creative director of a well known advertising agency, famous for many campaigns in Holland, like 'Even Apeldoorn Bellen'. Author of novels and poems. His wife is Will Kellermann, painter of the 'Romantic Adventurism', a colourful artist, her paintings selling worldwide. She is responsible for the interior decoration and the choice of materials. This ownership makes the house very special, both inside and out.
