Charming country cottage in a peaceful idyllic location. The cottage is in a very rural location ideal for people that want privacy , and want to be alone. There are stunning views if painting is your hobby and a quiet restful place to read and relax or walk through the mountains. The bird life is prolific, kingfishers in the nearby river, woodpeckers in the trees.
We are central to all golf courses and 30 mins from the beach.
The night sky is beautiful.
We are 30 mins from the beach and to the west 30 mins from Silves the old Moorish capital where there is a nice town for shopping and the old fortress and museum. Lots of restaurants and bars and shops in both Messines 20 mins away and Silves. A day out by the beach has lots of places to eat and drink and the Algarve shopping centre has a cinema.
We have maps for our guests.

There is a garden around the cottage with herbs for cooking. I have planted flowers and shrubs for bees and butterflies. Lots of space for sunbathing , tables and chairs outside for al fresco dining.

I like the garden and have spent many hours planting trees and flowers, I grow herbs for the kitchen permaculture is the basis of my growing and I keep a few chickens for the eggs. I like to cook and prefer spicy food, I Iike to read and watch dvds. I have 3 cats and 3 large dogs.
I used to travel during my holidays, until I came to live in the Algarve countryside. My favourite place is South East Asia..
As a host I hope to bring the feeling of comfort and peace and do my best to supply the needs for that.
