APRIL 2005- Scroll down for updated pics!

The Charm of Village Living

A new village property development, architect-designed, and in the heart of the Algarvian countryside.

RECANTO DA ARCADIA is a small terrace of just three houses (two 2-bedroomed, and one 1-bedroomed)set in the idyllic Algarve village of Barao de Sao Joao, just outside the coastal town of Lagos. The houses each have their own private courtyard, and share the use of a communal pool and garden area to the rear. The village itself is situated on the edge of the national forest, 10km from Lagos and the many beaches of this coastline, being one hour from Faro airport by the new motorway through nearby Bensafrim and only ten minutes from the Boavista Golf Course. The properties are south-facing and on the edge of the village proper, with beautiful countryside views and adjoining a proposed new 'praca' or square.

HOUSE DESIGN: All bedrooms are on the ground floor, with patio doors leading onto a planted and cobblestoned courtyard. The upper level living areas are light and open-plan, with large windows. The two-bedroom houses have an open terrace area off the living room. All houses are finished to a high standard.
