Surrounded by a small creek, our country house “Serro da Volta” lies alone in a sheltered valley, close to the village of Daroeira. The main house has 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are “en suite” (one with a separate entrance from the terrace), a large open-space kitchen and a bathroom. The second house “Casa Branca” is a separate apartment with a large living room/bedroom and a private bathroom. In the third building, the “Casa do Forno”, there is a large, wood-fired bread oven and an extra refridgerator. The six terraces offer sunny as well as shady places. The 12.5-meter water tank is surrounded by olive trees and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. With a modern central heating in every room, Serro da Volta is one of the few places where you can enjoy the beautiful nature of the eastern Algarve during the winter and spring season, when the beaches and hiking trails are empty, the plants are green and the flowers are blooming.
