Casa Maringa offers a great combination of nature and calmness, wellness and a large variety of beaches and pretty little towns in just about 20 – 30 minutes drive away.
The house is surrounded by a large property (5.600m2) and a beautiful garden, in which you are welcome to walk around and take a little rest on one of the benches. The view from the terrace leads you above the peaceful rural landscape, where once and again a shepherd with his herd is still passing by.
There is no big road nearby and no traffic noise; apart from some rural sounds – such as crowing cocks, croaking frogs, barking dogs and occasional land machines, it is very pleasantly quiet and calm.
You will find a variety of hiking trails and many possibilities to discover the rural hilly `hinterland`. One wonderful enchanted path follows the Alportel-river, where even in summer flows some water, starting just outside the property. The wide and endless hills of the `Serra de Caldeirão` with its cork-oaks and pine-trees is situated immediately to the North of Almargens, just a few footsteps away from Casa Maringa.
About ten minutes foot walk away you‘ ll find the Café Manta and a bread bakery. A variety of shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants you will find in Sao Brás, only 3,5km away.
A rental car is recommendable.
Faro and with it the closest airport are 25km away ( about 30minutes). The distance to the sea is more or less the same. To Lisbon one needs about 3 hours by car or train.
