The very large swimming pool, different terraces, patios and hammocks mean that you probably don't want to leave the house at all.

Casa de Botelho has been magnificently restored, it is reminiscent of old grand Portuguese farm estates while having been decorated with a minimal interior.
Its white walls, terracotta floors and abundant use of wooden furniture bring a warm touch to the interior and make this the perfect holiday home to bring your mind to rest.

In the center of the estate you find a typical courtyard with fountain, the soothing sound of water will accompany you wherever you walk around.
You can wander through the lush and mature gardens with lots of different fruit trees, laze on a day bed or try out the hanging bed in the old oak tree.

The house also offers plenty of privacy; the only sound you'll be hearing during your stay are the birds singing in the gardens and the water running in the fountains.

The villa is equipped with several lounge and dining rooms, library and 7 very spacious bedrooms.
All suites are spacious, elegantly designed and all have a private terrace with stylish lounge chairs and hammock to enjoy the beautiful surroundings to the fullest.

For your wellbeing and comfort, the suites are equipped with all modern amenities like A/C, espresso machine, underfloor heating, hairdryer, smart-tv and bluetooth loudspeaker. Egyptian cotton bedlinen, fluffy bathrobes, comfortable mattresses and locally produced biological soaps for your convenience.

Suites 1, 2 and 3 are on the ground floor in the main house while Suites 4 and 5 are on the first floor in the main house. Suites 6 and 7 are in the former animal stables, just adjacent to the main house. Suites 3 and 5 can also be used as 'family suites'.

The Farmhouse most special and romantic suite, Suite 4, has two terraces, one of which is a roof terrace which offers 270 degrees of amazing views over the surrounding valley and hills.

On the rooftop terrace is a 4-poster bed equipped with a mosquito net, to sleep outside in summer under the beautiful Portuguese night sky. A once-in-a-lifetime experience.

There is plenty of outdoor space to relax, entertain, dine or sunbathe in the manicured gardens, on one of the terraces, on a hammock or sun loungers. Everyone is sure to find their own favourite spot.

From the terraces you can enjoy the many stunning views over the valley, as well as the town of São Brás de Alportel, nicknamed 'terra de bons aires', the land of good air. As the name suggests, the air is exceptionally pure and clean, as is the water.

BY AIR Faro Airport: 15Km away

The area perfectly lends itself to a trip to Faro, Loulé or Tavira, a bike ride or a walk, a lovely day at the beach, or a round of golf. São Brás de Alportel used to be the world’s foremost cork town, so we highly recommend paying a visit to the local cork factory.

The market town of São Brás de Alportel, a little gem, is only 5 minutes away by car. There, as in nearby Loulé, you will find many good restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Visit Tavira or splendid Faro old town, head to one of the magnificent Algarve beaches, go kayaking in the beautiful Ria Formosa or play some golf,

A wide selection of restaurants are located 5Km from the villa.

Several beautiful golf courses are located 15 to 20 Km away.

There is plenty to do for everybody.
