Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Praia Grande - Luxury Casa with Private Pool
Sleeps 4/6. 2 bedroom end of terrace family home with own 6m pool. Quiet area ideal for nearby beaches (the closest is just 7 minutes walk), headland walking and numerous nearby golf courses. Plenty of peace and sunbathing space (plus roof terrace with sea view) just outside the unspoilt fishing village of Ferragudo. The property is refreshed each winter with decoration and additions so that the house always feels new and fresh each year. The house also has a personal safe for valuables.
Casa Lirio is our own home on the Algarve set in a quiet residential area with its own off-street parking behind lockable gates. It's a place to unwind with every facility easily to hand. Ideal for romantic couples, family holidays or as a perfect base for the many excellent golf courses which are nearby. Relax by walking to the lighthouse, across sandstone headlands overlooking the sea, or to one of the four golden beaches or 10 restaurants within easy walking distance. Several golf courses are close by (Penina, Pinta, Gramacho, Alto, etc.) The nearby unspoilt fishing village of Ferragudo has lots of small shops / restaurants in tiny cobbled streets (the village also has a pharmacy where English is spoken) and the square is a great place to relax by day in one of the coffee shops or bars (English breakfasts can also be found!). If you have children, two water theme parks and the ZooMarine oceanographic theme park are all within an easy drive.

Further details for this holiday rental
This is our own house on the Algarve and we maintain it accordingly. We regularly refresh and refurbish the house; and this winter is no different... we've even added a new additional window in one of the bathrooms (for added brightness!) new external furniture and the whole area around the pool and barbecue have also been refurbished in the last twelve months. The house has a personal safe for your passports, money etc, and additional locks on all patio doors, upstairs and downstairs. We have a policy of no smoking inside the house. Furnished to a high standard, it is suitable for small children with lockable gates front and back; cot and high chair also available (please request when booking).
One minimarket is available closeby (closed Nov - Feb), but there are also larger supermarkets within easy driving distance. There are too many good restaurants to mention, and several within easy walking distance - all of which are really child friendly with kids play areas. We have our own favourites and details/locations are contained in a book at the property; your only problem will be working out which of them you are going to visit in the limited time available to you! Cash dispensers are available in the village or at the golf courses.
For those of you bringing children, there are two water theme parks within easy reach ('Slide and Splash' and 'Aqualand' - both about 10 minutes drive) and also the ZooMarine oceanographic theme park (20 minutes) and Algarve Zoo.
Monchique is the tallest peak in the Algarve and can be seen from the house. A beautiful 45 minute drive will get you right to the very top .... from where you can look down on the whole of the Portimao area and go hiking if that is your thing. On the way down from the Peak you will also come across Caldes de Monchique which is a lovely restful and shady village built around the source of the local sping water. Take a picninc for lovely restful lunch and a few spare bottles so you can fill up with fresh water direct from the spring!
