A handsome villa, with delightful mature gardens & a large private pool. Experience a truly authentic village life, with friendly Portuguese neighbours, plus comfort and privacy - a rare combination ! The Villa has a superb sunny (25 foot) sitting room at first floor level, with wood-burning stove, overlooking a pasture often grazed by goats. 2 French windows lead onto a wide sun terrace looking towards the coastal cliffs. Steps curve down to the mature walled garden containing peach, orange, lemon and mandarin trees, fruiting vines & a gazebo.
The adjacent private pool is surrounded by floral beds in its own walled garden, reached by a gate in the Villa garden, thus enabling it to be secured safeguarding infants. The ground floor has 2 large twin bedrooms with French windows into the garden & 2 bathrooms (baths & showers). The optional cottage (Casita) has a sitting room (with a sofa which can become two single futons), 1 twin bedroom & bathroom. There is air-conditioning , and heating if required in winter months.
A generous welcome pack of food and wine is included. An English babysitter is available. Additional beds, cots and high chair are available.
The house has views over open countryside and over the quaint village roof tops to the coast. The area, being a National Park, is generally agreed to be the most beautiful in the Algarve and is richly endowed with wild flowers, rare birds and butterflies.
Golf, fishing, riding, tennis and sailing, are all only a few minutes away, as are little whitewashed fishing villages where the morning catch is sold and cooked, very cheaply.
