15% off weeks commencing 6th and 13th July 2019. Prices displayed do not include this reduction

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 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 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.

Terras Altas is close to Ursinhos.

Map

Vale de Parra, Albufeira, Algarve

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, which is home to some stylish yachts, several cafés, restaurants and an ice cream parlour. Sea fishing trips, dolphin safaris, diving (see Indigo Divers) and other water activities are available from the marina and in the summer there are open-air concerts and fashion shows. To the west of Vale de Parra, Quinta da Saudade is a mature estate of privately owned villas with a restaurant and bar. It is only five minutes from the beaches and just above Salgados Golf with a club house and restaurant (where our clients receive a 25% discount on green fees). Guia is close by; slightly inland and famous for its modestly priced restaurants serving chicken piri-piri (dry cooked, with a spicy chilli marinade). The nearby Algarve Shopping complex has numerous boutiques, cinemas and ten pin bowling and plenty of food outlets.

Pros
Close to some of the best beaches with a varied selection of restaurants. Most of the villas are in country positions, just a short drive from towns.
Cons
This area is becoming increasingly popular and there may be some construction work at certain times of the year.
