This beautiful 2 bedroom cottage with garden in the Algarve countryside has easy access to nearby towns and beaches. This typically Portuguese house is a beautiful place to spend your holidays!
Casa Safira is a beautiful little cottage located in the countryside, enough to be a perfectly peaceful location, but not too far from civilisation! The typically Portuguese cottage, that has been renovated, is a gorgeous place for a summer getaway with you family, friends, or significant other!
The Living room is equipped with one 2-seater sofa, two arm-chairs, and a TV system that you will be able to access your Netflix and other apps on, or you can zap through 4 very popular Portuguese channels, for News, documentaries, soaps and the occasional film in English with Portuguese Subtitles!
Another typically Portuguese part of Casa Safira is the Kitchen. It has been equipped to cater to all your needs by the very sweet owner of the property, who has been cleaning rental properties for years. You can trust us that she knows exactly how a kitchen should be equipped for cooking even the most elaborate recipes. But, hopefully as you are on holiday you won't want elaborate, all of your basic needs will be there too :) From pots, to pans, glasses, to mugs and cutlery... The Kitchen has a gas hob and oven, a microwave, fridge, freezer, kettle, chopping boards, a little table with 4 chairs for dining indoors, and a washing machine! Oh and a radio in case you fancy some music with your breakfast!
With a double bed in each of the 2 bedrooms, you're guaranteed to have a peaceful night. All bedding, towels and beach towels will be there for you when you arrive. You can borrow our beach towels for your beach adventures, but we ask you to please be mindful and bring them back :) Each bedroom has a wardrobe, bed side cabinets, and of course, space for you to spread out your beauty products and get ready (either for a night out, or for bed!) in front of a mirror.
The renovated "out house" has a large, tiled, walk-in shower, a sink and mirror, and a toilet. Simple, but all you need in this little home away from home.
Definitely the cutest part of the cottage is the outside space, which has been covered in artificial grass, where you'll find another table and chairs for outdoor dining, sun loungers either for tanning, or relaxing in the shade from the fig tree! By the time you arrive for your holiday, there will be an above ground mini-pool, not massive at all but great for a dip to cool down in this summery weather. (pictures will be added as soon as it has been installed!) You will also find a barbecue that you are more than welcome to use. We do kindly ask you to clean up the ashes from the coal after use.
Last but not least, a Rooftop Terrace - With gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside, it's a great place to chill in the evening with a glass of Vinho! Equipped with 2 sun loungers, but you are welcome to take a couple of the plastic chairs up there too!
Overall, this little house is perfect if you are looking for a simple place to stay, enjoy, relax and have fun.
