Overview of Algarve farmhouse : Quinta De Oxalá, Estombar, Near Lagoa, Western Algarve

n/a

Quinta de Oxalá is a delightful restoration and extension of an old farmhouse with plenty of space, swimming pool and large grounds. Dine indoors, on the spacious veranda, or under an old carob tree shading the barbecue area overlooking the swimming pool. Ideal for a family holiday or romantic getaway. There are plenty of places for everyone to find a favourite spot both indoors and outdoors, three verandas, two sitting rooms filled with art and antique pieces, and many other outdoor areas. A shaded bench beneath olive trees overlooks the water-lily pond with wild ducks, egrets and of course, frogs. This is a farming community, wake to cockerels crowing, the church bell ringing, dogs and donkeys greeting the new day.

Living Accommodation

The farmhouse is filled with antiques and art from our travels, African camp-chairs, ancient carved doors from the Hindu Cush, kilims from Peshawar and carpets from Persia. In the main sitting room there is TV and a music station that can be set to carry the sound through to the kitchen and dining areas. Games for children, (adults too!) can be found in a cupboard by the table. The well-equipped kitchen is central to the house and has a serving window giving onto the main veranda, the favourite spot for all meals, almost all meals as a barbeque by the pool is a must. The bedroom windows are screened and beds are swathed in mosquito netting.

Set in two hectares of open land in the wild countryside with figs, almonds and gigantic olive trees close to a small unspoilt heritage village. The baker stops at the top of the lane by the café every morning, the ice-cream van and the market gardener come on a Saturday and the farmer grazes his sheep in the fields next door. 3 golf courses and the fabulous sandy beaches of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo are within a few minutes drive.

Restrictions

We do not allow smoking or animals inside the house. Take great care with cigarette butts as there is high risk of fires in the Algarve, sand buckets are provided on the veranda. Our cat is called Petroleo and loves people, asks loudly to be cuddled but is not allowed indoors and must not be given tidbits on the veranda.
