High above Vale de Parra, this is certainly one of the most comfortable and attractive villas in our portfolio. Every detail is stylish, every item of furniture and equipment chosen with care. The design encompasses both modern and Moorish; graceful archways and thick, whitewashed walls; a wide spiral staircase topped by a domed ceiling; beautiful fabrics enhance marble floored bedrooms. The limed-chestnut fitted kitchen/utility/breakfast room is well equipped and the spacious sitting room has patio doors leading out to the terraces and pool, as do each of the downstairs bedrooms.
The pool dominates the colourful, landscaped garden and there are views over the surrounding valley to Galé Beach from both the pool area and the secluded roof terrace - we should warn you that this terrace has been the setting for two marriage proposals (both accepted!). The garden has a tropical feel with extensive lawns and various exotic plants and trees. On several different levels, there are areas of privacy and the thatched pergolas give welcome shade to the swimming pool terrace. There is a brand new gas barbeque at the side of the house with a sheltered dining area and views over the surrounding countryside to the Monchique Mountains. Numerous good restaurants are within a five minute drive of Terras Altas, for example São Domingos and O Marinheiro (both with vegetarian dishes available).
There is a garden fence separating the main house from the pool area making it safer for young children. A changing mat, microwave steriliser and baby bouncer are available on request.
Ground floor: Entrance hall. Living room with steps up to dining room. Kitchen. Washroom.
Steps down to: 1 twin bedroom with bathroom ensuite, 2 twin bedrooms with zip-linked mattresses. (Zip-linked mattresses can be made up as king size beds, Please request at time of booking) & walk-in showers en-suite.

Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and has some of the Algarve's finest beaches, the best known is probably Galé, a vast expanse of golden sand with restaurants and water sports, including jet-skiing and parasailing; there is also a 'banana' - great fun for the kids! Galé can be busy in the summer but turn down any of the tracks along the coast road and you are likely to find a quiet beach or bay. Some, like Praia da Coelha, are a fair walk from the nearest parking area but worth the effort. São Rafael and Praia do Castelo are more accessible and have good beach bars. There are some wonderful restaurants, for example São Domingos, which has a good menu (including some excellent vegetarian dishes) and our clients are made especially welcome here. Also, O Marinheiro, which specialises in fresh fish. The Cerro d'Aguia is a ridge which runs from the western side of Albufeira, parallel to the coast with lovely views across the countryside to the marina...READ MORE >
