The luxurious Casa Fonte is the front house of a uniquely designed split-level villa from 2016, located on 5,500 m2 of private land. The private, second house of the villa is located across and is sometimes inhabited by the two Dutch owners. Because of the transverse position and difference in height of both houses, privacy is guaranteed for all staying guests. And regardless if the owners are present or not: if you rent Casa Fonte you will have private use of the area around the swimming pool and pool sundeck, the hammock terrace and the pétanque court.
Casa Fonte can comfortably accommodate 4 people. The living room is modern and bright with a complete, open planned kitchen and a nicely decorated lounge area. The outside spaces offer both shadow and sun: the living room sliding doors bring you to your private east terrace with panoramic views and on the other side the large south-west facing patio is located. This is also a nice barbecue area and it’s fenced, so children can play safely. The spacious master bedroom has a comfortable King Size bed (180m) and also sliding doors to the sunny east terrace. A second spacious bedroom has two comfortable single beds and a private washing facility. There is one luxuriously finished bathroom with a rain shower and hand shower. All of the rooms have air conditioning (cooling and heating). In the hallway you find extensive tourist information, brochures and books, and there are games and DVDs. For small children there are pool and beach toys.
Outside Casa Fonte
Pool and leisure area: via the east terrace you walk to the backyard with the beautifully situated swimming pool behind the villa, which is purified with magnesium salt (good for skin and anti-allergenic). Here you have a breathtaking view of the hills and there is a beautiful sun terrace with a large outside dining table where you can eat and sit in the shade.
The first part of the pool is shallow, and possible to close off with a line: ideal for small children! A jet stream ensures that you can swim the necessary ‘laps’. The pool can be heated between half of April until mid-October. Below the swimming pool are 2 more terraces in the forest, where you can relax or play pétanque. There are 2 hammocks and a swing for small children.
Attached to the pool area is another bedroom for 2 people. Between June and September, this bedroom will always remain empty, to give you complete privacy by the pool. In the low season (Oct-May), max 2 private guests of the owners could occasionally sleep there. Because this bedroom is accessible from the inside, all privacy remains guaranteed.
Surroundings of Casa Fonte
Although the villa seems to be in the middle of nature, it is centrally located and very easily accessible from the road. From Faro airport it is only a 20 minute drive and beaches can be reached within half an hour. From Casa Fonte you have a view over an extensive nature reserve with olives, pine trees, cork oaks and eucalyptuses. Casa Fonte is situated at the end of Alportel, a tiny village with a church, a flock of sheep and 3 cafes where you can also have a simple lunch, dinner or snack. The nature reserve starts directly behind the house with the Alportel river below. You can have great walks here! Rented mountain bikes can be delivered to the house. A ten minute walk brings you to the Fonte Ferrea park with the river, hiking trails, a forest hut (snacks and drinks) and picnic / barbecue area.
There is a wide choice of restaurants in the area and at 3 km is the friendly town of São Brás de Alportel with shops, restaurants, a wide range of (inter)national supermarkets and the covered fresh market on Saturdays. The new MAR Shopping is only a fifteen minute drive away. Loulé is also a fifteen minute drive and has a monumental market and cozy streets. The various beaches of the beautiful Ria Formosa and the nice coastal towns of Tavira, Olhão, Fuseta and Faro can be reached within half an hour. From here you can take the boat to one of the islands. The more upscale Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are also a 30 minutes drive away. And if you go the North you drive through a really beautiful hilly landscape. Within the hour you reach the renowned wineries of the Alentejo.
You will notice little of all the tourists who visit the Algarve in the high season, but if you wish you can be in the bustle within half an hour. Casa Fonte therefore offers the perfect basis for a wonderful holiday for the food lovers, the nature lovers or sports enthusiasts!
