We were both born in Europe and now live in Boston, MA. Jesus teaches at MIT and Sophie does research for a technology company. We have 6 grown-up children. Flying to Portugal (Lisbon) is easy from Boston; and from Lisbon to Casa da Figueira is an nice drive on a new highway. From Europe the best way to fly to is Faro which is an hour drive away from Casa da Figueira. My parents bought Casa da Figueira in 1976 when I was a teenager. Casa da Figueira is a beautiful traditional Portuguese villa that has been in our family for almost 4 decades. We do yearly upgrades and maintenance to keep it in exceptional condition while maintaining the authentic atmosphere. In 2012 we renovated the kitchen and we have renovated the bathrooms, build a beautiful pool, completely surrounded the large property and tropical yard with a traditional white wall so its safe for children to run around. Each January we do significant maintenance so please do let us or Amelia know if something needs to be upgraded. Keeping a traditional Portuguese home in exceptional condition requires on-going maintenance work. Our own six children, now young adults, have enjoyed coming to Casa da Figueira at all ages. We are looking for individuals or families who will enjoy Casa da Figueira as much as we do and who can help cover the costs of maintaining this beautiful exclusive property and keeping Amelia, our truly amazing housekeeper who has worked for my family for over 25 years, employed. We are very much looking forward to hear from you. A comprehensive folder with information about Casa da Figueira, Praia da Luz and the Algarve is available for your use. Please do add your personal comments and suggestions so our other clients can benefit from your experience. We hope you will enjoy Casa da Figueira as much as we do. Looking forward to hear from you!
