Casa Caruchino is a private villa in its own grounds with a private heated pool situated on the Quinta da Saudade.  The Quinta da Saudade is a small British-run estate of privately-owned villas.  It occupies approximately twenty-four acres about five miles west of Albufeira.

The Quinta nestles in the peaceful country setting of an old hillside farm estate.  It is surrounded by orange, almond and olive trees and is about forty-five minutes drive from the Airport at Faro.
The nearest beach is less than two miles away. It is a magnificent long stretch of sand, bounded by dunes, where you can escape the crowds, even in August.

The Riding Stables at the Casa Caruchino, Quinta da Saudade have some fabulous horses that are available for gallops across the dunes or slow hacks through the countryside.

There are attractive country walks in the vicinity and there is a wetlands nature reserve nearby with a wealth of bird and plant life not commonly found in the UK.  Purple Heron, Little Bittern, Alpine Swift, Bee Eater, Red Necked Night Jar, Azure Winged Magpie and more.

Approached by a formal circular drive with further car access and a car port to the rear, the accommodation consists of a double master suite, a twin master suite and a further two twin bedrooms. All the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and French doors leading to the gardens.

The sitting room is large with plenty of seating space and there is a separate dining room.  There is satellite television, DVD player and music system.  Doors lead from the sitting room out onto a large terrace that overlook the well-established gardens.  The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dishwasher and microwave amongst the normal appliances.  There is an additional small quiet area near to the bedrooms.

In the terraced landscaped grounds of mature native trees and shrubs, the heated swimming pool has steps and the depth is approximately 1.1 metres at the bottom of the steps to 1.7 metres in the middle.

Pool heating and bedroom air-conditioning incur an additional charge.

For Winter occupation, there is a good stove/open fire in the sitting-room and gas central heating.  Bedding and towels are provided but not towels for the beach.

The villa rental is inclusive of maid service and utilities.  If you are staying in the villa between November and mid-April, you will be charged for electricity and logs.  At that time, there is a basic charge for rent.

Guests will receive a complimentary starter pack in the villa consisting of eggs, milk, butter, sugar, coffee, tea, bread, drinking water and white wine.

Bookings are on a weekly basis from Thursday to Thursday, but if your holiday has to start on specific days, please let me know as we can be flexible.
