Villa overview - owner's description
Traditional, rustic-style Luxury 5-bedroomed Villa, spectacular panoramic views, 15 minutes from Faro airport, golden beaches and superb golf.
The villa is in an idyllic location where one can have the best of all worlds, relaxing stress-free seclusion, golden beaches nearby and some of the best golf courses in the world.
Situated on a hillside in rural Algarve, the villa has breath-taking and uninterrupted views of the sea, mountains and coastal towns. Faro Airport is just fifteen minutes away. Beautiful beaches, golf courses, waterparks and many other leisure facilities are also within easy reach.
The accommodation is on two levels. A large entrance hall leads into the living area which has a spacious lounge and conservatory-style dining room from which you can enjoy the spectacular views. Through the French windows you enter a part-shaded patio where you may dine al fresco and enjoy the sun.
The kitchen is part open-plan with easy access to the dining area. It is very well equipped with generous refrigeration, micro-wave, dishwasher and gas hob/fan assisted oven. There is plenty of glassware, crockery and cutlery, etc. The standard of furnishing throughout is of high quality with Smart TV and DVD equipment together with a surround sound system in the living area. There is free internet access. Two log-burning fires and an under-floor heating system provide heating when necessary. The plug sockets are mainly English 3-pin.
There is also a family suite on the same level consisting of a double room with en suite shower and toilet and an adjoining bedroom containing two large bunk beds.
At the lower level, the swimming pool separates two wings of the villa containing three other bedrooms. On the left is the Master Bedroom with super-king-sized bed and ensuite bathroom. On the right are two twin bedrooms with their own shower suites. Two cots are available for tiny visitors. Bed-linen and towels are provided. However, guests are requested to bring their own beach towels.
All bedrooms are furnished to a high standard with splendid views. There are mosquito screens and security shutters on all bedroom windows and all rooms have ceiling fans.
The pool, which can be heated during cooler months, has plenty of sunbeds and seating arrangements with a bar, containing a sink and refrigerator. There is also a large covered patio area with luxury outdoor furniture and a magnificent view of the sea, towards the golf resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo. The barbecue in the garden is just a few steps down from the pool. It incorporates a traditional bread oven for those who like to experiment with local cooking methods! There is also a pool table below the covered patio.
Good shopping facilities exist in Loule, the local market town, a five-minute drive away. Market day is Saturday and worth a visit. There is a large supermarket called Continente Modelo not far from the centre of the town which sells nearly everything. There is a newer, larger Continente supermarket along the S.Bras road on the way to Loule. There are other excellent shopping facilities in Faro, Almancil, Albufeira and Portimao.
The cards of restaurants which have been recommended by our visitors are kept in the villa and updated regularly. These are all within easy reach and any new ‘finds’ or comments on existing venues are welcomed.
The price includes all electricity, gas and internet access.

We are very happy with our stay at the Villa and with our house keeper Nathalia. The only thing not satisfying was the problem with Cold water in the shower. You had to shower early in the evening otherwise the water was freezing Cold. This was not expected in this luxorius villa. Thanks for a nice holiday!
As this was our first holiday together we wanted somewhere fabulous but with plenty of space and privacy to allow our 4 children and ourselves to chill by the pool or spend time indoors without being in each others way. The villa is beautifully laid out and provides plenty of seclusion if needed and at the same time allows for plenty of 'family' space. It is set out in an upside-down layout, with the bedrooms on the lower floors. The upper floor is accessible from 3 separate stairways, 2 internal and 1 to the balcony. (great for hide-and-seek!!). It would appear the owners are continuously upgrading what is already a good level of comfort, by adding more shade to the sun-drenched pool area, so that whatever time of day it is, you have a choice of somewhere cool and shady or full-on sunshine. The uninterrupted view from the back of the villa is truly breathtaking and the perfect spot to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. Natalia, the house-keeper, was a gem and quietly got on with her cleaning and tidying each day, never forgetting to ask if there was any laundry that needed doing. A neat home from home trick is the use of UK 3 pin plugs throughout. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very much hope to return at some stage soon.
Just what we were looking for, a well appointed property suitable for two families, situated in a quite location with stunning view. Pool / terrace area excellent with plenty of sun beds and shaded areas. Natalie was a little treasure.
This is a lovely villa with superb views across to the sea.
The maid is a gem who speaks very good English and she can do my ironing any day!
The only real down side was the "road" (and I use the term loosely) up to the property - it was very bumpy and on the day it had rained through the night, became very slippy at the bottom. We only just avoided sliding out on to the main road!
The pool was cleaned weekly and water topped up often - it is a lovely pool and a very welcome way of cooling down! It was 1 - 2 meters deep, mostly 2.
The fan in one of the bedrooms did not work and could not be repaired. Other repairs that were needed were dealt with quickly.
All in all I would recommend this to friends - and would go back again.
The only downside to this Villa was the drive up to it. A 4 x 4 would probably enjoy the experience but we did not in a hire car!
The drive needs sorting!
