Garden Cottage of a Country Villa with Pool, Mountain and stunning Seaviews

Located in: Alcaria Cova
The Love Nest is located on the foothills of the Monte Sao Miguel range, an elevated setting with lovely mountain and stunning coastal sea views overlooking the distant offshore islands and towns from Fuseta to Olhao and Faro.

A rural country area in natural wild shrub land setting, very safe ideal for rambling country walks along the many lanes or mountain tracks to suit all levels of fitness or just unwind and take in the peace and quiet.
Shopping and village markets, festivals and affordable restaurants from 1.5 Km away.

The offshore islands beckon with endless, uncrowded and sun-drenched beaches, easily accessed by either water taxis or small ferries docking below in Olhao or Fuseta, under 10 minutes away.
The easy access to the A22 motorway allows all Algarve’s appealing entertainments, sport activities and even Spain to be very accessible, all within a 30minute drive.

PROPERTY LAYOUT
The cottage is detached back to back across a shared rear courtyard from our main home Casa Lami.
The cottage has own garden and boule court also nearby Gazebo for alfresco dining.
Another seperately elevated garden terrace with very private sundeck and more panoramic views. A very safe undercover shared carport.

The pool has no overlooking villas and is located at the front of our main bungalow house, and guests have own separate easy access at all times.
PLEASE NOTE that although the pool is located in front of the main house it is NOT A SHARED POOL AT ALL, as the owners are a long retired couple with a lifetime under an African sun and NEVER USE THE POOL.

INSIDE
The LOVE NEST was converted from our detached extra-large double garage into a cosy very comfortable open plan studio cottage for two.

An ample lounge area with comfortable IKEA seating plus rocking chair, an open plan archway links the bedroom with Emperor size double bed with memory foam topper over posturepedic mattresses, ironed all cotton bedlinen with all seasons duvets, an ample dressing area leads to an ensuite bathroom with shower, basin, toilet and crisp sundried cotton towels.

A welcome pack of wine, beer and some fridge essentials is provided to set your holiday off to a good start

CHANGE OVER DAY
The preferred changeover is Saturday but we are flexible wherever dates fit in reasonably with other bookings. To allow for cleaning on check-out please vacate by 10am and normal check-in time is 2pm, however, whenever possible we gladly adjust for earlier or later flights times.

OUTSIDE
The property is on 3800sq meters of elevated private rural land overlooking some scattered villas below, it is securely fenced in with an automated entrance gate, driveway and mature gardens, grass lawns and tall palm trees.

As the property is on variable sloping land care has been taken to avoid riser steps making it ideal for elderly or infirm to negotiate the cottage, parking, garden, pool and main house all on one level with aid of a few gentle ramps.

The Cottage has an own separate front and rear entrance with an outdoor gazebo for alfresco dining. Plus an additional elevated terrace sundeck for very private suntanning, a Hot Jacuzzi Tub for 2, plus hammocks, barbeque and more stunning coastal views

The villa pool is 'L' shaped 24mts square area, ranges from 1.2 to 1.9m deep and has deep "champagne" seating steps, with sun loungers plus umbrellas, no overlooking houses.

For hot evenings the floodlit court awaits you for fun filled games of boule.

MANAGEMENT
The cottage is owner managed, they have over 16 years’ experience in renting out their holiday properties. Their guest´s PRIVACY, SAFETY, SECURITY and wellbeing is most important to them and knowing holidays are the most precious times of all, special care is taken to ensure a care free holiday.

SAFETY
Being an approved and licensed holiday property the cottage is inspected and conforms to the comfort and safety standards such as:
Gas and Smoke detector alarms in the kitchen area / Strategically placed 2 category Fire Extinguishers plus Fire blanket and luminous Exit signs / Power failure emergency lighting / First Aid Kit cupboard visibly wall mounted, to which we add extra anti-histamine tablets and creams to instantly reduce discomfort from stings and bites.

SECURITY
During economic austerity times some 10 years ago, we installed into all 4 our properties top of the range yet easy to use Security Direct Alarms Systems to prevent unpleasant break-in intrusions spoiling our guest’s holidays.
However, as our permanent home Casa Lami alarm system is linked with our annex Love Nest cottage we only ever use the alarm when absent and vacant on lengthy periods, trusting the many alarm warning signs fixed all around our property is an adequate deterrent.

NOTABLY THIS ALARM SYSTEM ALSO OFFERS EXTRA PEACE OF MIND for emergency instant reaction, as it is directly linked via GPS to Police Villa Vigilance Service / The Fire Brigade / Emergency Ambulance with Paramedics / Plus a mere touch of a button away from National Emergency Service 112 attention, all of whom readily speak English.

PRIVACY
Although the Love Nest is detached but situated in close proximity with the owners’ main house, our guest’s privacy remains paramount.

MORE TO SAY
The LOVE NEST is managed as a holiday cottage by the owners, a retired couple from South Africa who have lived in the Algarve for many years. They have another 2 holiday properties completely private with own pool; please refer to Villa Monte Fava 8000504 or (P310) and also to Villa Monte Mar 8039605 or (P6170)
All 3 properties are approved and licensed for holiday letting. The owners love the Algarve and, knowing holidays are precious to us all, they are keen to furnish more information or advice so that you may make a happy choice and maybe return year after year.
They speak English, German and Zulu, some Portuguese and follow Flemish/Dutch
