Description of the house
Quinta do Sol…wander through your own orange grove, pick a pear from a tree, eat the figs of the abundant fig trees while they are still warm from the sun…after opening the large iron gate you drive about 100 meters through a luscious garden, where then emerges the most luxurious villa in front of you! Welcome to Quinta do Sol!
Within walking distance of the centre of Moncarapacho, this wonderful villa is beautifully located in the middle of its own orange grove. The recently completed villa has its own private pool measuring 13 x 6 metres!
The villa is private, so there are no shared rooms or owners on the property, which is entirely fenced off. There are various terraces, one with a brick barbecue. The roof terrace offers amazing views. From here you can see beautiful sunsets, the ocean, or, further inland, the Algarvian hills.
Inside the villa, you will find a massive living room with a big open fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a separate dining area. The hallway entrance is spectacular with its eight-meter high, domed roof! On the ground floor there are two spacious bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. These bedrooms have their own terrace situated on the south side of the villa. On the first floor, there are two more bedrooms, both very spacious, with their own en-suite bathrooms. Both the bedrooms on the first floor have direct access to the roof terrace.
During the cooler winter season, an additional fireplace in the dining room and underfloor heating in all the room ensure a cosy and comfortable stay.
Surroundings Quinta do Sol
Moncarapacho is located in the Eastern part of the Algarve. Cities close by are Olhao and Tavira. Faro and airport are only 30 minutes away.
Beaches are within a 10-minute drive and a specialty of the “Sotavento” region.
The loveliest beaches are also the closest: on the Ria Formosa, untouched by mass tourism, with small beach bars and restaurants, white sandy beaches and old fishing boats,
which are still in use. Here you can actually eat the fish that have just been caught!
There are several golf courses within a couple of minutes’ drive of Quinta do Sol. A thorough golfer´s guide you may find here. The golf courses in Eastern Algarve (Tavira Area and Santo António Area) are the ones which are just nearby.
The most remarkable feature of the Algarve is, however, the extent and variety of its bird life. Over 300 species are either indigenous to the region, visit the Algarve at certain times of the year, or stop off here on their migration to and from Africa. With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, the lush vegetation and many flowers that vary from month to month are a
real joy – not just for botanists, starting with pink and white almond blossom in January, and a golden sea of acacia, mimosas and buttercups in February.
The Parque Natural da Formosa, one of the most important European national parks, with its rambling marshland and bird is definitely worth a visit.
Abundant flora and fauna with amazing flamingos and stilts you may also find in the precious Reserva Natural do Sapal de Castro Marim e Vila Real de Santo António.
