Our house, in the countryside just south of Moncarapacho, is quiet and private, being down a track, and having a totally enclosed, walled garden. The 10 x 5m pool is solar heated and accessible from a covered patio leading off the lounge. There is a further eating area with tiled table under arches of bougainvillea. There are very few steps, and some downstairs bedrooms, making this ideal for the less able, and the enclosed garden makes it great for children. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms. This is our holiday retreat and so has lots of reference books for the fauna and flora of the region, guide books, children's games and toys, and puzzles, as well as TV, DVD player, some CD/DVDs, and plenty of light reading. Also available are a cot and high chair. You will need a car to reach the villa and to get about to see the lovely country, the beaches, and the local markets. You can just see the sea from our villa and, if the wind is in the right direction, hear the waves!

Fly to Faro and hire a car and we are about 25 minutes drive from there (map when you book). It is very peaceful and a wall keeps the garden secluded. From our house, it is about 3 minutes drive to the nearest mini market; 10 minutes to the nearest supermarket; and 25 minutes to the nearest beach. There are lots of things to do and see around where we are.
There is a house book full of safety advice and housekeeping, as well as details of shops, restaurants, and beaches. So much of a holiday is about what you like to do, so these are merely some ideas to get you started if you do not know the Algarve. There are also lots of reference books with more ideas about beaches or routes top walk, as well as books on the fauna and flora of the area.
We are not golfers, but there are golf courses in Tavira and Quinta do Lago, as well as Vale de Lobo, all within about half an hour's drive. We play tennis and there are courts in Vale de Lobo.

Other possible matters of interest
All the windows are covered by fly screens.
The pool is solar heated. No sun = no heat!! Winter renters be aware, please.
We like to communicate in English, particularly when writing emails, but can understand German, French and have limited Portuguese (nao muito!). So if you wish to write in one of those languages, that is fine by us.
The pool varies in depth from 1.2m to 1.9m (no diving please). There are steps at the one end and sitting pods in the deep end

Small children
We can provide a cot and high chair if needed and also protective netting around the swimming pool

Changeover day/pricing
We try to be fllexible on this, but encourage you to go for Thursdays or Saturdays if possible. There are different prices for different parts of the year and also for up to 4 guests and 5/6 guests. We ask for a deposit of 30% of the fee, the balance payable 8 weeks before you depart. Additionally, there is a refundable deposit of £200 payable with your final payment, which will be returned as soon as the house has been checked following your departure.
After receiving the final payment, we shall send you details for finding the house, and gaining access.We hope that Brexit, if it happens, will not affect euro/pound values too much, but we must reserve the right to alter prices if the pound suddenly plummets. Please be sure to take out your own travel and cancellation insurance, in case you need to cancel your holiday for any reason.
The price covers virually everything apart from food and drink - it covers cleaning up after you leave, though please take as much rubbish away as you can. It covers all the bed linen and includes beach towels, so you really do not need to pack much (swimsuit and sun tan lotion!). There are beach toys in the cupboard as well as some games, and lots of books left by previous guests.

I just wanted to write and say that we truly loved our week at your lovely holiday home. i needed a break in a natural environment with peace and privacy and that was exactly what it gave me. Thank you so much. We're inspired to maybe buy up in the hills one day ourselves.

We had a nice stay

By Béatrice Vacher on 24-Aug-2020

We had a nice stay at casa Rosmaninho, in a quiet area , exactly what we were looking for. It was nice to feel in a real home and we would have liked to stay longer !
The pool was wonderful, even a little too hot the day we arrived ! We enjoyed also the garden and the beautiful palm trees, a privilege in this area of Portugal that is so dry

I'm so happy to have found the "simply owners" website some months ago , i don't know in what way(???) .We'll call it a happy coincidence ...Otherwise ,I could never have found your ad and have such a pleasant stay in Portugal.

Beautiful home

By Karen Brown on 02-Sep-2019

I just wanted to thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful home for our holidays again this year. My son is profoundly autistic so the familiarity of the surroundings really helped him to relax; we couldn’t think of anywhere that we would rather be.
If at all possible, we would all love to return again next year, maybe at the end of August if you don’t have any regulars then?

Fantastic holiday

By Doug Mann on 11-Jul-2019

Hi Martin, just to let you know we're back home now after a usual fantastic holiday in the Algarve. We forgot to leave an entry in the visitors book but your house was great, very homely, extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly have needed and the heated pool was lovely and very well used! The setting and garden were lovely and very relaxing, although we did notice rats in the garden. Being outdoor people this didn't bother us because it's part of living in countryside and I don't think there's anything you can do about this, but other guests might be spooked.
We tried to keep the kitchen drain as free flowing as possible but it was still backing up and pouring out at the back of the cupboard when the dishwasher was emptying which was causing the plug adaptor to short out. We managed this as best we could and it was fine.
That said, you have a beautiful home there and we had a fantastic visit.
Many thanks
Doug, Rachel and Alexandra

Just a note to let you know we packed up this morning and sadly said goodbye to the house.We enjoyed it very much, such a special place.
We also wanted to comment on the excellent support folks you put in place. Anna and her mother were terrific and Leona was very responsive and extremely helpful. We also loved your gardening crew who happily tolerated my gardening questions.
Anyway Martin our thanks again.

Absolutely delighted

By Patrice Bardot on 17-Aug-2018

Dear Martin,
How are you ? Again we were absolutely delighted by our stay at your home. Everything was fine. A good info for you, but I am pretty sure you already knew it : the new guy for the pool is very good, he’s working hard twice a week.
For the moment, I can’t book next year, may be we’ll need to move our dates to august. Hope to tell you more soon !
Kind regards

Fabulous, Five Star Family Holiday

By Karen Brown on 12-Aug-2018

The Algarve is one of my favourite destinations, so for our family holiday this year we decided to return to the Eastern Algarve, which is quiet and laid back compared to the busy resorts of the west. After viewing countless villas online we decided upon Casa Rosmaninho because of its size and location, which appeared to be perfect for us; once we arrived, we immediately knew that we had made the right choice!

The villa is in a fantastic spot that is private and not overlooked at all, it is the perfect combination of being a relatively short drive from the airport and in a more rural spot but without being too secluded and not too far from shops cafes and restaurants. The interior is very spacious and incredibly homely, it has character and I believe the photographs do not do it justice at all.

The mature gardens are absolutely beautiful with an abundance of colour and a lovely terraced area for alfresco dining. The covered patio off the lounge was perfect for some much-needed shade during the day and a comfortable spot to sit for evening drinks. The pool is much larger than many villas with the added bonus of being heated, which meant that we could enjoy it at any time of day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in wonderfully comfortable surroundings and my family cannot wait to return next year.

Fantastic relaxing stay

By Karen Brown on 30-Jul-2018

We have had a fantastic relaxing stay in your amazing villa. The gardens are beautiful and there is not shortage of things to do. We have loved swimming and playing in the pool at all times of the day and night. The peaceful surroundings have been great for us, and the neighbours we have spoken to have been so friendly.

Thanks to Leona for helping us out when I managed to drive straight passed the villa more than once when we arrived!

Thanks to Martin & Christine for letting us share your gorgeous house
