The interior is full of natural light and divided across two levels. The spacious living and dining room opens onto a covered terrace for lounging and alfresco dining overlooking the beautiful garden. All six bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and chestnut wood floors, whilst the rest of the villa has terracotta tiled floors. There are mosquito nets on all secondary windows so that guest can keep them open on hot days, whilst the main “French” windows are fitted with shutters. The villa is also has a log burner and air-conditioning and underfloor heating throughout, making it suitable for year-round bookings.
Mostly laid to lawn and with pines trees providing plenty of shade, the garden is enclosed by a natural stone wall which allows guests to look out over the countryside whilst enjoying total privacy. A shaded games area has table tennis and table football and there are bicycles available for guests to use.
There is a home gym which includes a running and rowing machine, spinning bike, step machine and free weights.
The surrounding rural area is quite stunning and there are various amenities within a short drive, including Nick Faldo's 'Amendoeiras' golf course which is just 5 minutes away. Silves is only a short distance with its cobbled streets, open-air cafes, castle, cathedral and market. Away from the hustle and bustle of the coastline, here you can experience typical Portuguese life and explore the daily market selling local produce and crafts – on Saturdays the market doubles in size. You can complete your afternoon with an ice-cream and a stroll along the riverbank of the Rio Arade.
A basic welcome hamper is supplied on arrival which includes a very special bottle of wine produced by the owners themselves, plus fresh fruit, seasonal produce from the garden and some basic essentials.
It is possible to organise a private chef, cocktail barista or beach picnic. A bespoke program of activites including tennis coaching, yoga, surfing lessons and an outdoor cinema experience can be arranged in advance to suit your group’s needs. Please ask us for more details and a quote.
