A Love Nest in the grounds of an Old FarmHouse.

This stunning renovated farmstead is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle. Monte Velho, has beautiful gardens, a private pool and BBQ area. You will have access to the converted Stables with the 'Old Kitchen' and 'Winery' as additional rooms (suitable for 6 adults). Only 30 min to Faro airport and 10 min to your local town of Sao Bras, with quaint bars, cafes, and traditional restaurants. The perfect place to retreat to.

The space
Monte Velho is an old farmstead recently restored in a sympathetic style to a spacious relaxing private holiday home. This is a fantastic way to experience a relaxing traditional Portuguese home away from home hidden in the hills.

THE STABLES
This spacious traditional holiday home can accommodate 2 people consisting of 1 bedroom fitted with a queen-size bed, a large bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen and a bright open living room.

THE OLD KITCHEN
This unique bedroom has two single beds with an ensuite bathroom that has been renovated into the traditional old kitchen chimney. Check out the photos, they don't do it justice! This room opens up to the courtyard living space. Enjoy a coffee from your bed watching the olive tree sway in the summer breeze.

THE WINERY
Enjoy the peacefulness of this bedroom with your own front door opening up to the tranquil garden. You have your own double bed and ensuite bathroom. Sit on your front step and watch the stars at night or take a ponder around the garden in the mornings.

THE WASHROOM
You have a washing machine, iron, clothes horse, sink basin, as well as entertainment. We have left some bicycles, an old school foosball table, rackets and pool beds for you to use during your stay.

Each of these are separate dwellings, so please note the only kitchen is located in the stables. Guests will have the exclusive use of the very private pool, coal BBQ area, and the beautifully maintained gardens.

There is a local bar in the village square only 500 meters away and an array of excellent restaurants in Sao Bras 1 mile away. Venture under the arch in the village square and 1 mile through a winding lane you come to Juncais where the road turns to dirt and winds through a magical valley of cork oaks, black pigs and goat herds. This is in the foothills of Fonte Férrea national park. Travel 20min by car and find yourself along the Algarves beautiful coast. This is rural Portugal at its best.

Hello, My name is Kate and I live and work in Dublin, Ireland. I have been visiting the Algarve in Portugal for over 20 years. My family fell in love with Sao Bras and bought an old farm house there which we converted. We all like to spend time there as much as we can and rent it out to guests when we are not there. When I am away I love to spend time with friends and family ... cooking and eating local food.
