Location: Miles of gorgeous, golden, sandy beaches, calm clear waters and bays interspersed with rugged cliffs and enchanting grottoes; the Algarve is amongst the top European holiday destinations. The South of Portugal was the last place to gain independence from the Moors in 1292, conquered by the King Dom Afonso III and even today traces of the Moorish presence are visible in the unique terraces, chimneys and whitewashed villas. Despite the obvious influence of tourism, a short drive inland reveals the true Algarve where life goes on much as it has for many centuries. This brightly colored region with orange groves, almond trees in blossom and fragrant pines is also the most verdant and fertile. Sports enthusiasts will find ideal conditions and top class facilities; the golf courses and tennis establishments have a highly prized reputation. Above all, the Algarve is a children's haven; several exciting water parks, surfing in Praia da Luz, horse riding near Lagos.

'Villa Grande' was originally acquired 2007 as a further home in the Algarve in Portugal. I primarily live in London and have business interests in Ireland and Germany.
Ryanair, Easyjet, British Airways and Monarch make commuting from one location to the other both convenient and sometimes very cheap. Car Hire is also relatively inexpensive. So when the Villa is not leased out, I take advantage of the availability.
Alfie purchased this villa in 2007

What makes this villa unique
Because I and my family spend much time at Villa Grande, the Villa is full of all the creature comforts that make a Villa Holiday very special.
