who follows?
Immediately after the purchase in 2003, we and our many visitors experienced
a lot of pleasure from the house, the Portuguese, the environment and the
climate in all seasons. We have developed it for rental and for receiving groups.
For us, now is the time to look at something easier in the environment and
find a follow-up for continuation.

house and grounds
The area of 3250 m2 is a former olive grove (oliveira) located in Sitio do Laranjeiro, 
a hamlet 4 km from Olhão and 2.5 km from Moncarapacho. It is slightly sloping,
with a vertical drop of about 5 meters. There is a beautiful view of the hills beyond
and the location is such that there is hardly any surrounding houses in sight.
The house is, by a small difference in height, slightly built into the slope. Originally,
the "big" house was a farm with stables years ago. Afterwards, several renovations
took place.

             	On various sides there are seating areas and terraces with sun and                            	
shade of your choice. The hot water supply is done eg with solar collectors.
The adjacent apartment was a storage and is wheel chair friendly
furnished. Near the house is a shed that has potential for
2 x singles sleeping.

About 50 meters from the house is the pool with terrace. Through a solar collector 
the water is kept warmer in winter. There are also two "Cabins", Chicken and Hop. 
We use them for groups (to create more sleeping options beyond the normal rent).

They each have a double bed. In between is a laundry with hot shower and toilet.
The location is very convenient, quiet and easily accessible from Faro and the
coastal highway.

trees, herbs, plants and flowers

At least 30 olive trees are on the property, 7 almonds, carob and lemon tree, fig, 
medlar, pomegranate, grapes, lots of flowers and herbs. There is a pit of 20 meters 
deep with a pump for irrigation. Inspiration for the kitchen, For example lemon/almond
tart, fig jam. Olives are harvested in autumn and go to the press in Santa Catarina
for very flavorful olive oil.
Chico the goatherd often passes, his sister and our 
neighbour Idalina make delicious goat cheeses.

groups and theme weeks 

We regularly receive groups: philosophy, olive picking, yoga, a bridge club, walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers, a music band. The house has lent itself well to family gatherings.


On bookings no shortage: through agencies up 8 people, or we handle
our own reservations, as in a week course. At a larger occupancy the
Hen, Hop and tents could be used.  The agency @Leisure covers the
European market and represents among other Belvilla and Euro Relais.
Portucasa covers the Dutch market. Our caretaker is there at arrival and
departure, and maintains and organises cleaning and laundry. For further maintenance we have various contacts. .
We also have an extensive list of useful addresses and telephone numbers.
It is possible to stay in the apartment while the house is rented out, also by adding more room and an own access by means of some changes.

                                        The house appears to have been a profitable investment in recent years.
                                        We would like our activities to be continued.
