Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Vale de Parra - Casa Amendoeira

Fully air conditioned, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa set amongst orange groves

Casa Amendoeira is a pretty 2 bedroom air conditioned villa situated on the privately owned Quinta da Saudade . The mature estate occupies 24 acres and is set in luscious groves of orange, almond and olive trees. The Quinta nestles within a picturesque river valley that overlooks tranquil farmland towards Pera and the Atlantic Ocean. Nearby for the earnest golfer is the championship ocean fronted golf course at Salgados and also the wetlands nature reserve which is home to turtles, flamingoes and other exotic birds.

The Quinta has two swimming pools. The pool pictured below is just a minutes stroll from our villa and is set within beautiful gardens filled with tropical flowers and palm trees. There is also an additional larger pool with a separate shallow end for small children set adjacent to the pool bar lower down the river valley. The pool bar is open from late morning till evening and serves everything from a lazy brunch to light lunch and hosts evening barbeques in the summer.

Activities are in abundance such as tennis , mini golf, petanque, table tennis and a children's play area with its own paddling pool. The Quinta has its own stables and horse rides to the beach can be arranged as well as carriage rides to nearby picturesque villages.. The original farmhouse with exposed beams and original features is home to a restaurant and cocktail bar which is open in the evening with take away menu available.

Why not come and experience the delights that await you on the Quinta da Saudade which keep families coming back year after year.

About Geraldine Venables

We are from Hertfordshire and have been visiting Portugal since 1985. We happened to stay at the Quinta for the first time a few years later and fell in love with the unique character. David and I bought Casa Amendoeira in 1989 and have spent many years lovingly updating it but allowing it to remain quintessentially Portuguese. We have seen our children grow up on many holidays there and have made great friendships with other families who holiday at the Quinta. Now our grandchildren are experiencing the Quinta and loving it as much as our children did. It is quite simply our home from home!

Why Geraldine Venables chose Vale de Parra

Casa Amendoeira has a prime position on the Quinta enjoying not only the best views but easy accessibility to all facilities whilst remaining private and tranquil.

What makes this villa unique

The views to Carlos beach are unforgettable. You never tire of sitting on the terrace in the evening watching the sunset whilst enjoying a glass of wine. Often you will see the horses returning from their ride to the beach or the Shepherd returning with his herd of goats for the night

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Amendoeira, Quinta Da Saudade. Vale De Parra



This individual, privately owned, 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa is one of several built on a hillside development with tranquil, uninterrupted views to the sea and distant Armacao de Pera. The villa has a long private terrace with full sun from about lunchtime and is quiet and peaceful. Satellite television provides a vast range of UK programmes, national and regional. There are 2 swimming pools on the site, tennis courts and horse riding. A restaurant is open during the summer months. The villa provides all domestic services, is conveniently located for local restaurants, and the beautiful beaches for which Portugal is famous. A car is desirable. This was our second visit and we thoroughly recommend this property.

Perfect

  • 5 out of 5
Fantastic peaceful location. The villa is comfortable and homley I have nothing negative to say about it, we have spent the last couple of years stopping in villas around this area with our small granddaughters all of them a lot more expensive and they did not have a patch on this villa with its great pool areas, park and horse riding we will defeantly be rebooking in 2015 and a bonus of having cleaning service 3 times a week

The Quinta Da Saudade

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was immaculate on our arrival with a small complimentary welcome pack for us. The staff at the office were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were very beautiful and well maintained. Both pools were spotless, The restaurant and bar at the Quinta is well worth a vist. We went down there every night for a drink and a chat. Jorge at the bar is well worth getting to know. What a lovely guy.
The zoo marine and the slide and splash park were two parks we went too. While they are not cheap they are well worth the money. Go early and spend the whole day.
We spent most of our days going to the numerous beaches close by or relaxing at the Quinta.
All in all I would highly recommend the Quinta Da Saudade and would encourage any one visiting to get to know the local people. Very friendly and good fun.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at our villa. We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

We discovered the Quinta many years ago with our children there is no other place like it on the Algarve it is totally unspoilt. Now our children go with their children.
