Holiday Rental House
Cottage Florestal is set in the National Forest of Barao de Sao Joao. Idyllic and peaceful setting with stunning views and walks in the forest. The Cottage has an open plan ground floor with separate Bathroom and a Mezzanine Bedroom. There is a private Rear Patio area with a table and chairs, sun loungers, BBQ and Parasols. The cottage is situated above the traditional village of Barao de Sao Joao which is only a 15 min walk through the national forest, it has a few shops which will provide you with essentials and is well known for its bars with live music at weekends. We live in a separate house on the 15 acre property with our 18 year old son and have dogs and a cat, all of which are friendly. We are very lucky to live in a special place along the Algarve and love to share it with other...Cottage Florestal is set in the National Forest of Barao de Sao Joao.

The cottage is delightful; well equipped, comfortable and clean. Karen is friendly and helpful, and Frank the dog is always ready to accompany guests on one of the many lovely forest walks from right outside the front door.
