Property DescriptionSitting in grounds of almost 3 hectars scattered with bougainvillea, olive, fig, palm, citrus and almond trees this spacious, converted long term rental farmhouse is one of the most traditionally styled properties in our Algarve portfolio. Placing modern fixtures and fittings alongside numerous original features, the furnishings, equipment and décor throughout Quinta de la Cruz are a comprehensive fusion of old and new creating an atmosphere that is, in turn, welcoming, homely and more than a little evocative of a bygone era.
Electric entrance gates and a driveway lined with colourful bougainvillea beckon you to the main rental house entrance where a distinctively arched front door perfectly sets the tone for the unique property lying beyond. Formerly part of a church confessional, the door still retains the ornate central grill through which hushed conversations once took place. Inside, 16th Century hand-painted ceramics surround the fireplace, handmade ladrillo tiles (replete with the potter’s thumbprints!) form the dining room floor, and an eclectic selection of aged oil paintings, ornaments and memorabilia adorns the shelves and walls. Singular antique pieces include a fascinating jewellers’ cabinet from the 17th Century, plus a rare and virtually complete Vista Alegre dinner service, similar to the gift Queen Elizabeth II received from the State during her 1957 visit to Portugal. Acid etching to certain mirrors and the glass ceiling of the en suite bathroom further enhance the traditional ambience. With a double bedroom, twin bedroom and a two single bedrooms, the sleeping accommodation lends itself particularly well to families of mixed age groups. Of note is that one of the single bedrooms is quite simply furnished and accessed from either the covered terrace and/or the Jack n’ Jill bathroom shared with the twin room, so may be best suited to a teenager or as a nursery/bedroom for a nanny. Home to an impressive variety of shrubs - including a huge carob tree and a small lawn from where there are views across to the outskirts of Carvoiero and the sea – the colourful garden has plenty of space for seekers of sun, shade or solitude. Towering over the secluded and private poolside terrace is an 18m high palm tree - the tallest for many miles and a notable local landmark. Several restaurants, small supermarket and coffee shops as well as an à la carte restaurant are all only a short stroll away, while the tennis courts and gymnasium of the well known Carvoiero Club are about a 5 minute drive/20 minute walk. Four supermarkets, two local fresh food and fish markets, two golf courses, five sandy beaches, the fishing village of Ferragudo as well as Carvoeiro itself are all within 4km.
The bus station is just outside the property and one can easily catch frequent transportation to Carvoeiro.
Maid service once per week can be provided. Bills such as gas, electricity and water are in addition to the rent. A full time gardener as well as a weekly pool manager are included
