Overview

Photos and Description of this Marmelete holiday villa

Sleeps 9. 4 Bedroom Villa.

Villa Casa Corsino is situated in an idyllic location overlooking Barragem Lake in the forested hills above Lagos. Recently Scott Dunns most prestigious setting, Villa view is proud to have this opportunity to be the sole agent. From the house you can walk down to the lake via a track . Once at the lake you can walk or just sit and watch the diverse wildlife in its natural surroundings.

Built in 2007, Casa Corsino is light, airy and spacious and many of the rooms have been stylishly designed to make the most of the impressive views of the lake. Locally quarried stone is a strong feature throughout the villa and in its architecture.

With the exception of the master bedroom suite, all the accommodation at Casa Corsino is on the ground floor. Twin bedroom which has a shower room. The living, dining area and open-plan kitchen look out onto the terrace and lake views. At the far end of the house, there is a double room with en-suite bathroom. This is a lovely bright room with doors that lead out onto the decked terrace.

The open plan sitting/living room and 4th bedroom, lead out onto the decked area and outdoor covered dining area, making it an ideal place to watch the children playing in the pool and surrounding grounds.

Upstairs there is a very light, spacious master double bedroom with a large dressing area, which can easily fit a cot. This leads onto a good sized bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Doors from the bedroom lead onto a large, sunny balcony, from which there are wonderful views of the garden below and beyond to the lake.

The villa is set in extensive grounds and has been divided into two distinct areas – formal gardens and a natural area. The formal gardens, maintained by the villa gardener, consist of the pool which has been cleverly integrated into a landscaped garden, incorporating rock formations and little waterfalls and a ‘beach style’ entry making it good for children. This clever arrangement gives the impression of a natural rock pool that was intended as part of the landscape. Surrounding the pool on three sides, is a lawned area flanked with architectural plants, palms and colourful shrubs and trees. Beyond here, the remainder of the grounds have been left completely natural allowing the local flora and fauna to flourish in its natural habitat. There is a helipad at the bottom of the garden before you reach the lake, too.

Surprisingly, with the close proximity of Casa Corsino to the lake, there are very few mosquito,s, as the fish eat the lavae.

Casa Corsino has a real ‘swallows and amazons’ feel and is perfect for guests who enjoy the peace of the countryside, but with the comforts of modern contemporary living. You'll get a real taste of Portugal in this beautiful undiscovered part of the Algarve.
