Casa Cazan sits on the foothills below Loulé and on the edge of Almancil overlooking the Golden Triangle with lovely sea views from the terrace.
Arrive at the double security entrance gates and press your fob to open the way to your holiday. Drive along the curved driveway up to the front courtyard giving access to the main house and also the guest lodge. The entrance door of Cazan brings you into a Moorish hallway with a domed brick ceiling. This is the hub of the house and has a very pretty guests cloakroom.
All the doors in the house are impressive and one leads to the main living area that has the sitting room with large central fireplace with a 4m high Art Deco styled chimney and the raised grate has an open gas fire.
Adjoins is the wonderful “Chalon Kitchen” with an impressive 3m Long Island with sink, cupboards and a large pine surface. On the long window wall is a range of sink unit, dishwasher and cupboards. Either side of the island unit a large housemaids cupboard with two fridges ans opposite is the large Wolf oven and hop. A door leads through into a large utility room with more fridges/deep freezers, clothes washer and tumble drier together with a range of cupboards. This then leads onto a small terrace that is perfect for a quiet al fresco breakfast catching the early morning sun yet sheltered from the prevailing winds making it an all year around breakfast terrace.
Off the sitting room is the huge master bedroom suite with four poster bed and a most impressive stone bathroom with circular stone tiles shower area, a raised bath guarded guarded by two impressive stone pillars. The suite has access onto a small private sun terrace.
Leading again from the hall is the “vista” room that has a huge range of folding curtain walling that provides the perfect place for lunch or a formal dinner for 14.
The hall also gives way to the second master suite that again is impressive with a truly beautiful stone dressed bathroom again with a stone dressed showering area and a separate bath. The anti room to this bedroom suite serves as a children’s bedroom and can comfortably house 4 single beds.
The property sits on the top of its land overlooking the sea and the top terrace off the Vista room has an outdoor table tennis table. It’s a nice place to sit away from the pool area just below you.
There are wide curved gracious steps down to the luxurious pool area and there you have a large cabana and a large pool house that is the hub serving the golf putting green and chipping area. The stone bordered boule pitch, and the Astro turf tennis court. This level has a bedroom suite with bathroom and anti room that leads from the covered dining area with its large screen projector with Sky Tv. Adjoining this is the outside kitchen with a large gas BBQ and a wood fired huge bread oven that can comfortably take a suckling pig, a turkey or be the very best in pizza ovens, the tillage room holds the gas bottle for beer, larger or cider that can be “on tap”. There is plenty of fridge space, sink unit and dishwasher. The perfect al fresco situation.
Clearly the pool is a terrific asset to a holiday and with its dramatic stone faced infinity end you have good depth for diving and the other end has a wide beach entry that is ideal for young children.
The guest house is just across from the golf putting green and works well with the house. It has a large kitchen, family room, plus two bedrooms and a family shower room. Even the guest house has air con units in each room.
