There's no swimming pool but with beautiful beaches and lakes nearby you can still easily access places to swim. Located in peaceful countryside outside the small historic town of Alcantarilha, it is a few minutes drive to Algarve attractions like Zoomarine and Fiesa sand sculpture city and water parks like Aqualand. In 10 minutes you can be on the beach or having a drink or something to eat at a real Portuguese restaurant in Armacao de Pera, where the market sells delicious local produce for you to bring back to enjoy cooking on the BBQ and eating at Quinta Sunshine. Great bike rides, golf courses and off-road walks can be accessed all around this sunny holiday home. The house is accessible on one level from a large sunny terrace that's ideal for enjoying breakfast or a BBQ. There are plenty of outdoor seating areas in the large garden where you can enjoy the shade or a spot in the sunshine, watching the birds and Algarve wildlife that is so prolific along the small river at the bottom of the garden. A covered seating area has sun loungers and lighting so it can be a great place to chill out at night. Please help yourself to fruit from the trees in the garden including oranges, apples, grapes, nespera, plums, figs and quince. Inside, the kitchen has all modern facilities, including dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven, induction hob, fridge freezer and gas hot water boiler. There's a good size table to eat at in the kitchen as well as an extendable dining table in the main living room, which can seat six or more friends and family. The living room has 43inch TV and a large sofa with chaise long, and two comfy arm chairs. The sofa can be transformed into a bed for more guests to sleep on if required. There is air conditioning in this room. Bedroom 1 overlooks the garden and the river and has a comfy double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, chair and mirror. It's a peaceful place. Bedroom 2 overlooks the terrace and has two comfy single beds perfect for kids or they can be arranged as a large double for guests who would prefer that. There is also a wardrobe, table, chest of drawers and chair. The bathroom has a powerful shower, new bath and glass shower screen so you can enjoy a soak. Plenty of fresh towels and smellies make this a great place to freshen up. A portable WiFi connection means you can enjoy being connected anywhere in the house or garden. Dogs are welcome to join their family on holiday here, with plenty of space for them to enjoy themselves in the garden and a sheltered patio area off the kitchen for them to sleep.

About the neighbourhood
The countryside around Alcantarilha is still the 'real Algarve', full of fields of orange trees (it is only a 15 minute drive from the property to the 'capital or oranges' Silves), wildflowers and farmers who have been tending their plots here for decades. But it is also full of modern amenities, sensitively fitted into this natural paradise. There are the award winning Faldo and O'Connor golf courses at the Amendoeira Golf Resort only 5 minutes drive away. Visit the fantastic sand sculptures at Fiesa in Pera which you could walk to in under 45 minutes through the beautiful Alcantarilha valley, enjoying the scenery and wildlife along the way. Zoomarine is just round the corner. Aqualand is only a splash away. Beaches only 10 minutes drive.
Getting around
Bikes, bus, by foot or by car, once you're at the property, it's easy to make your way to lots of local attractions by whatever means of transport takes your fancy. It's easy to hire bikes from nearby Guia or Armacao de Pera. There are plenty of great road trips if you have car. By foot you can walk through the village of Alcantarilha and find bus routes to towns along the coast.
