About the property

Cottage in Corcitos, Querenca, Nr. Loule, Central Algarve, Portugal. - Peaceful Loc. On The Edge Of The Fonte Benemolmola With 1.5 Acres Of Fenced Garden

Lemon-tree-cottage is located in the quiet hamlet of Corcitos just 2 km from the pretty village of Querença with its beautiful XIV century church, bars, restaurant and mini-market. A tranquil haven away from the pressures of hectic modern-day life and yet, it is close to everything that you need (banks, supermarkets, pharmacies etc. in Loule). Corcitos is just 25~30 minutes easy drive from Faro airport and ideally located to explore the whole Algarve. A day-trip into the Alentejo is easily achieved as Corcitos is well connected to the key roads. For those who want to enjoy country walks Lemon Tree Cottage is ideally placed. The track to the Fonte de Benemola passes within 30m the entrance to Lemon Tree Cottage. Walkers and birdwatchers on a 2 week stay can find a different walk every day without repetition.

The Cottage is located in fully fenced grounds of about 1.5 acres with entrance via remote control electronic gates. There are plenty of seating areas around the pool terrace and gardens to enjoy the sun or shade.

The upper orchard and lower Horta provide a variety of fruit (Orange, Lemon, Lime, Apricot, Plums, and Figs) which you can help yourself to when in season.

The pool is 12 x 5m and mildly saline, with about the same salinity of a tear drop. So no chlorine or stinging eyes.

An outdoor rattan sofa set, additional 4 seater Bistro set and swing seat have been added in 2016 in partially shaded locations near the cottage to provide cooler spots for guests to enjoy. A gas BBQ is available. A pool table can be made available by request.

The cottage is fully air conditioned at no extra cost.

About Trevor Beckett

We are an ex-geologist and botanist that love the countryside, fresh air and peace & quiet. Now we work in IT & a school and just love getting away to Portugal to enjoy the stress free living in this area of the Algarve.

We love driving on the empty roads, the local food and wine and working in the garden with blue sky above us.

Trevor Beckett purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Trevor Beckett chose Municipality of Loulé

After travelling extensively we first came to the Algarve in 2013 looking for a place for a holiday home and a place to retire to. We stayed at a number of B&B's along the length of the Algarve but decided the area north of Loulé was the perfect location away from the busy coastal strip but within easy reach of most places along the Algarve and into Spain and so we decided to buy a property in the tranquil hills overlooking Loulé.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the peace and tranquillity of our location here in Corcitos. The pool, garden and orchards are our joy. We can go for many varied walks without having to use the car. We love birds and they abound here. We regularly hear the Tawny Owls, Nightingales, Golden Orioles and many other songbirds. We love the easy access to and from Faro airport and the convenient flights between Faro and UK. Loule is a wonderful local town and offers us everything we need in just a short 15 minute drive. We love the many restaurants in the hills that offer great value and quality compared to the more coastal areas.
