For Peace & Quiet
Casa Violeta is located down a tranquil rural lane, so there is minimal passing traffic. The swimming pool, hot tub and al fresco dining areas are totally private and the house is surrounded on three sides by beautifully maintained tropical gardens with many indigenous plants and features. You can literally forget the world here as there's hardly a building in sight .
Casa Violeta is approx 45 minutes' drive from the nearest airport in Faro. Seville and Lisbon are also options at 2 and 2.5 hrs respectively.
It is just five minutes' drive up a good mountain road from the district's main town, São Brás de Alportel. The town has many popular amenities and amazingly inexpensive restaurants (including Indian, Chinese, pizza) plus bars, cafes, supermarkets, hairdressers, a tourism office, museum and a good taxi service (approx 12 €* from São Brás to Casa Violeta*).
Car hire is recommended, although if you don't want to drive, we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up from Faro airport (approx 35 €*) and can help with hiring bikes for you.
If you want the taxi to meet you at the airport, take you shopping on the way home, and then take you back to the airport at the end of your stay this will be 60 €*
