About Michael and Donna
Me and my wife are originally from London and like most people living amid the hustle and bustle of busy cities, longed to spend days in more tranquil surroundings. We first holidayed in the Algarve some twenty years ago and it quickly became a favourite place above all other European destinations.
Why Michael and Donna chose Sao Bras de Alportel
When we walked in and saw the amazing panoramic views we just looked at each other and knew it was perfect. The unspoilt local town of Sao Bras de Alportel is ideally situated for touring the Algarve and is just fifteen minutes from Loule, twenty five minutes from Faro airport and close to Tavira and the Spanish border. Lisbon is an easy two hour drive.
What makes this villa unique
The villa is truly a home from home.The location is peaceful with breathtaking views over the valleys, yet the town centre is just a couple of minutes down the road. We love eating alfresco on the upper terrace where there is a traditional Portuguese barbecue (or our fantastic Kamado Joe) and then relax with a glass of something chilled under the pergola beside the lemon and orange trees in the garden or then again you could go for a bike ride.
