  • Description

    Description

    We live in a beautiful quinta in the algarve countryside, with about 8 acres of gardens and paddocks, and a pool. We have 4 dogs of our own, and sometimes up to 6 more, in our "free roaming kennels. " we also run a small cattery. I have two beautiful gentle horses, who we ride often. I am 54, and English, and my husband is 71 and Irish. My goodness, that sounds old and we are NOT old

    We live in the countryside, an oasis of calm, but only 10 minutes to the village , Guia, which has many bars and restaurants, shops and a post office. A jeep is available to you, as are bikes. We have a lovely pool, and the beaches are 15 mins drive away, or a 40 minute cycle. You must be confident and self sufficient, and happy to cook for yourselves. Sometimes I will cook for everyone, I love it, and used to be a chef!
