Our villa, 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!
Location 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 four guests and 5/6 guests. We ask for a deposit of 30% of the fee, the balance payable 8 weeks before you depart. 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.

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.

By Patrice Bardot, France on 22-Aug-2018
For the fourth time we enjoyed the house and hospitality of Leona and Ana. And for the fourth time we left our hearts to Casa Rosmaninho. Til the next time - can't wait
By Patrice Bardot on 17-Aug-2018
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 !
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
