This stylish villa is just outside the village of Odiáxere and is just a short drive from the popular and cosmopolitan town of Lagos.
Quinta Velha is an absolute oasis; set behind electric gates in nine acres of private garden, mostly laid to lawn, and is approached via a driveway which winds its way through the immaculate garden to the villa. The garden has shade provided by the many trees and is totally private.
The villa is beautifully furnished throughout with a fabulous blend of modern and antique furnishings and unusual features. Many original features have been retained in the sympathetic conversion including wooden beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and cobble stones. The villa has a wonderful feel and the interior remains cool in the summer months.
There is spacious hall with a beautiful wooden bench-seat and wide arches leading to the main living accommodation. From here an open staircase leads to the first floor (there is netting on the side of the stairs and stair gates can be provided top and bottom if groups include children).
The sitting room, dining room and kitchen have doors opening onto the pool and garden. The sitting room has comfortable sofas, antique lamps, a coffee table and an attractive fireplace. The kitchen has a breakfast table and central island and is fully equipped. One of the bedrooms also opens onto the garden and has unique and ingenious en-suite facilities with 3 cupboard doors opening respectively onto a shower, wash basin and w.c. and the master bedroom has a sunken bath within the room. At the top of the staircase is a mezzanine with a library overlooking the sitting room.
A covered terrace with an awning runs the length of the house with a barbeque at one end. The unusually shaped swimming pool has a shallow children's area and a central island with wide steps down.
Although the villa is just 600m from Odiáxere, which has a selection of shops and restaurants, Quinta Velha is a country property in a quiet and peaceful location.
