The space
Casa Jardim is ideal for couples looking for a peaceful and relaxing break away from the crowded resorts. It is not suitable for children.

You will be staying in the Pool apartment with own private terrace overlooking and with exclusive access to the pool. (For more photos see our own website)
It is set in two acres of beautiful grounds, consisting of natural terrain and partly-landscaped gardens, with oleanders, hibiscus, agaves and palms, plus olive, carob and almond trees. The approach is down a 100m private drive, which affords total seclusion. In spring the natural gardens are full of wild flowers including many orchids.

Enjoy your own private space in our modern villa built in traditional Portuguese style. The Pool apartment is a fusion of traditional materials and modern design. It is bright and spacious with a large living/dining room and fully fitted kitchen area, with double bedroom and en-suite bathroom. We offer the choice of a large double bed (or twin beds on request). The double doors lead out to your own private terrace, with table and chairs for alfresco dining.

The owners live in separate accommodation close by.

Casa Jardim is situated just 2.5 kilometres from the market town of MONCARAPACHO where you will find numerous bars and several very good restaurants and a number of small but well stocked supermarkets.

We are just 25 minutes from Faro Airport, and as a CAR is ESSENTIAL we suggest that you pick up a rental car there. Directions from the airport to Casa Jardim are easy to follow.

The Pool apartment has Bluetooth speakers, dozens of books, free wireless internet access, clothes-airer, hairdryer, an iron and ironing board.

You will find fresh flowers from the garden in your room to welcome you.
If you are arriving late we will be happy to book you a table at a local restaurant.

We provide a Beach Bag with towels, beach mats, sun umbrellas and cold bags with ice packs. Also large towels for use by the pool.

Fans are available in the summer, and for winter rentals, heating is provided.

Outside and surrounded by the gardens is a large 11m x 4m pool with sun-beds, and umbrellas for shade.

The large BBQ and picnic table is ideal for eating out and enjoying all the fresh fish from the local markets, and lit by candles and lanterns is a lovely way to spend an evening.

Moncarapacho is midway between the regional capitol of Faro and the beautiful and historic town of Tavira, and just 30 minutes from the Spanish border. It is a short drive to the coast and some beautiful sand dune backed beaches in one direction, and the unspoiled countryside in the other. There are spectacular views from the surrounding hills which are perfect for exploring by car or on foot.

The Ria Formosa Nature reserve is a protected area that stretches for many miles along the coast from Faro to the Spanish border, and includes most of the beaches. The area is home to many wild birds and is situated on the route for birds migrating between Africa and Northern Europe, and is of world ornithological importance. The reception office for the reserve is only 10 minutes from Casa Jardim.

Nearby in Estoi is the impressive 18th Century Palace and Gardens, and at Milreu lie the excavated remains of a Roman Palace, with fragments of mosaics depicting mythical marine motifs.

The bustling fishing town of Olhao which possesses the best fish and produce market in the area is 10 minutes away, and well worth a visit. From the harbour you can take the ferry and visit the nearby islands of Armona and Culatra. Along the seafront and in the narrow cobbled streets are more than two dozen restaurants and bars, many specialising in the very fresh locally caught fish. Most are traditional Portuguese and offer great value. The ‘prato do dia’ is excellent value at around €8 and often includes a beer, dessert and coffee! There is also a choice of Italian and Chinese cuisine.

Tavira, which is described as ‘the most beautiful town in the Algarve’ is not to be missed. The river runs through the centre and is crossed by the Roman Bridge. There are spectacular views from the ruined castle walls across a skyline of churches towards the sea.

We love ...... the unspoiled countryside. The friendliness of the people. So many great local restaurants. Fresh fish from the markets. Good inexpensive wines. Close to the beach. The peace and quiet.

We moved to Portugal 15 years ago after taking early retirement, to live a better life in the sun. We had a lot of fun designing our house, in traditional Portuguese style but with a modern twist. The garden is planted to blend with the natural landscape, is full of interest and surprises, including a number of sculptures that we have created over the years, and we are happy to share it with our guests.

We love to travel and favourite places in recent years have been the Greek Islands, Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, a road trip from Arizona to San Francisco, Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Cape Town, The Okavango Delta, Southern India, Cuba, Costa Rica, Panama and the Pearl Islands.
