Our fully equipped kitchen will make home cooking a pleasure and should the weather warrant it, the dining suite in the living room provides for comfortable eating indoors.
This room also boasts two large Italian sofas with matching foot stools.
The entertainment unit housing a 50” smart TV with Netflix and Chromecast, books and games and a stand-alone wood burning stove creates a cosy homely feel on the rare cool day or chilly night. Of course there is air-conditioning!
There is wifi throughout the house and terraced areas. Though the pièce de résistance has to be Tacito (Portuguese for silent / mute) the bottle storing tortoise table!
But who wants to be indoors? Eating out at home is such a joy…….the aromatic scent of fresh herbs, coupled with the sizzling sound of fresh fish or meat on the charcoal is mouth-watering at any time of day! Breakfast outside on the patio is extra special with cheerful birdsong and the faint sounds of the fishermen returning with their late night or early morning catch!
There’s no need for a clock here, the local church bells ring in the hours and lively antics and calls of the seagulls announce mealtimes!
Sundowners on the rooftop to the sound of the wind blowing through the rigging and halyards of sailboats in the marina, the fading light “through dark clouds a red rose peeping and an amber gleam*” eases the day into the night. (*Afanasy Afanasyevich Fet)
