Sao Marcos da Serra, Faro District, Algarve
Casa Amora (Blackberry Cottage) is set in the hills of the Northern Algarve. Though in a peaceful, rural position it is possible to be in the village of Sao Marcos da Serra in a few minutes, or on a beach in 1/2 hour. The historical town of Silves is a short drive as is the mountain town of Monchique. The world class surf beaches of the west coast are just over an hour away.

Reviewed 25 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a lovely 6 days in the house - there are not many places which are as peaceful as this with the only visitors being the occasional sheep running through the garden!

The surrounding countryside is lovely and we managed to do plenty of walking on the rota vicentina trails both locally and on the stunning west coast ... with the added bonus of a swim in the plunge pool on our return!

Management response:

Thank you for your glowing review, I would agree it certainly is a beautiful setting for walking. Please come again :)
