The Art of Joy Location
The Art of Joy is located in the far southwest of Portugal. The house is on the southern slope of Mount Foia at an altitude of 700 m surrounded by protected natural scenery. It is within the volcanic mountain range of the Serra de Monchique which is known for its natural springs. The Art of Joy has its own mineral water which feeds directly into the swimming pool and makes for a special swimming and bathing experience.
The advantage of the high altitude is the magnificent views of both the South and the West Coasts. With the naked eye you can even see vessels at the ocean. Moreover, it makes the summer nights pleasantly cool.
We are fifty miles from the international airport of Faro. It is necessary to rent a car with for example www.cars4holidays.com Sunny Cars or you can book through your national airlines. There are many bargains on flights with Easy Jet and Ryan Air.
