It's a beautiful large sunny country house set in a valley outside Monchique, with stunning views over Foia, the highest point in the Algarve. We are about 25 minutes drive to the west coast beaches, 45 minutes to the south coast, and 25 minutes drive to Monchique, a picturesque hill-town, for shops/banks/post office etc. Lots of fruit trees on land and beautiful river frontage.
We are offering a 10-month stay. Successful applicants can start towards the end of July 2019 (exact date TBA) and we would like them to be available until the last week of May 2020. No short term applicants please.
Sitters must be self-contained, and happy to be in the peace of the countryside. This would suit someone writing a book, doing academic work or working from home generally. We are 25 minutes drive from Monchique, up a winding mountain road - there is little traffic! The nearest shops are about 25 minutes away. Ability to speak some Portuguese is an advantage, but not essential.
