About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Villa in Calicos, Nr. Moncarapacho,

Casa Raposeira is set amongst a garden of palms, on a hillside in the much sought after area of Calicos, just 2km from the little town of Moncarapacho. With its mature garden of specimen palms, orange, carob, and figs it is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the stunning country and sea views. Along with its lawned play area, private pool and BBQ, this non-smoking villa offers all home comforts including mosquito screens and fans in the bedrooms and an open stone fireplace for cooler months. The Vila Monte hotel provides a bar and two very good restaurants within easy walking distance. There is an excellent choice of restaurants and shops just 3 minutes drive away in Moncarapacho, and an array of glorious beaches within 10-15 minutes. Faro airport is approximately 25 minutes drive with nearby access to the motorway although protected from traffic noise on the other side of the hill. There are golf facilities within 10 minutes, and tennis within 1/2 km. This property has obtained a Holiday Rental Licence.

Why Gillian chose Moncarapacho

We love this practical but pretty villa with its' rural location. We have enjoyed landscaping the garden so that we can have relaxing holidays with the family away from the bustle of London. The view over the sea, especially as the sun goes down in the evening, is magical. Moncarapacho is a delightful village with a market. It has good Portuguese restaurants and small supermarkets which seem to have everything you want but a trip to Olhao fish market is a must! The Vila Monte has re-opened within walking distance and now provides two very good restaurants.

'The family absolutely loved it - having been to several villas, Raposeira is stunning and would thoroughly recommend it. My mother was staggered by the quality of the gardens - I have to say they are fabulous.' C & M
