A superbly situated spacious and comfortable holiday home with a private pool set in an attractive terraced garden which enjoys spectacular panoramic southerly views over forests & foothills to the coast. A different flavour of Portugal - the villa is away from the tourist developments yet just 5 minutes from the bustling town of Monchique.
Amidst the scent of pine and eucalyptus trees, the property is set away from the road which ascends to Foia, the highest point in the Algarve and is a five minute drive to Monchique, a traditional market town with a good range of shops which cater for daily needs, including a fish and vegetable market. Only 45 minutes from either the renowned South Coast or stunningly rugged West Coast. The views from the villa are spectacular over the rolling foothills of the Serra de Monchique to the coast from East of Albufeira to beyond Lagos in the West. There are many good and inexpensive restaurants within a short distance, especially the well known Restaurant Rampa famous for its excellent piri piri chicken. There are many attractive walks through the cork oak, olive and eucalyptus woods in the area.
Casa Rosa is situated in a secluded position amongst pine, mimosa and chestnut trees and will appeal to those seeking a relaxing holiday in a well equipped and comfortable villa. The lush green views as you climb up the hill to Foia are in stark contrast to the beach scene of the coast.
Directions will be given prior to your holiday.
