About our home

Large villa with 3 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms

Villa Madrugada is one of several villa’s on a 13.000 M2 private Estate with swimming pool and tennis court.

The QUINTA BOTANICA Estate is only 20 minuten away from Faro Airport in the quiet part of Eastern Algarve.

The closest beach is only 3 km away in Fuzeta in the famous Ria Formosa sanctuary and is one of many beautiful beaches in the Algarve.

The villa has all the comfort one would like and fitted with air conditioning, dishwasher,, oven, washing machine, jacuzzi bathtub , microwave, etc.

The master bedroom has a large roof terras and around the villa is a large terrace area with barbecue and 2 dining areas.

There is a large swimming pool and a private tennis court within the large gardens.

Exchange does not have to be simultaneously as this Is a second home.
Exchange also of a car would be a great advantage for me.

You will need a car at my place to get around. However, this year car rental prices are sky high at Faro airport.
For the people who do point swaps I can offer you one of my convertible cars for rent during your stay.
I have a Ford Escort Deluxe (4 seater) convertible that cost € 35 per day or a BMW Z3 convertible 2 seater sportscaster for € 40 per day. If you rent for minimum one week that price also includes transfers from and to the airport. A taxi from the airport to my place cost about € 50 one way.

Cleaning the villa. When you leave after your stay, please leave the villa as clean as you found it.
Otherwise there is a cleaning charge of € 60.

  1. Single male

  2. Retired

  3. I am Dutch but have lived more than 35 years outside of Holland. Usually , when I am not traveling, I stay 6 months a year at my place in Portugal and 6 months a year in my place in Sri Lanka. I am more of a globetrotter who enjoys nature as much as culture. My hobby is traveling around the world and I have visited something like 112 countries and have done at least 55 home exchanges. In each corner of this world. I loved all of them.

    I usually travel alone but occasionally one of my siblings or family member might join me.

Where is it?


The villa is on a private Estate with more than 13.000 M2 semi-tropical park and gardens, ponds, swimming pool, private tennis court, trampoline etc. QUINTA BOTANICA is quietly located in the countryside away from the noise but only 8 minutes by car to the nearest beach. One of the many beautiful beaches in the Algarve. Airport Faro is only 20 minutes away. Many supermarkets and shoppingmalls are nearby in places like Olhao, Tavira and Faro. However, you will need a car to get around. That’s why I recommended a car exchange as well.
Car rentals might be very expansive. Especially in high season (which seems to be nearly all year these days)
I have a few convertible cars to choose from.

Villa Madrugada is very central located and ideal to make daytrips, visit different beaches and even Sevilla in Spain is only 2 hours away. Also you can just opt to stay just home at Quinta Botanica, enjoy the gardens and pool and just get lazy chilling out, reading a book, listing to music or a podcast or just listen to the birds in the garden.
Many people enjoy the pond, full of frogs and a turtle named Pebbles.

You could also go and walk to the small, but very authentic, nearby village of Moncarapacho to mix with the locals on a terrace at the church’s square. By the way, there are several splendid restaurants to be found in Moncarapacho as well as in nearby Fuzeta, Olhao or Tavira. If you are a Fish lover, this area is paradise for you as fish is always fresh from the nearby sea. Whatever you do, it will be impossible to get bored.
You will find a map with many tips for daytrips and all sorts of information to have a good time.
Have a nice holiday.
