NEW AND CONTEMPORARY VILLA WITH HEATED POOL, WIFI & HOME CINEMA

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Vila Nova de Cacela - Villa Alfarroba

4 Bed Villa - Spacious & Luxurious - fantastic location, sea views

Brand new - contemporary villa with solar heated pool, large terraces and sea views.

Luxurious private villa- 4 en-suite bedrooms, spacious living area inside and out.

Our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive of Villa Alfarroba there are 7 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. The towns of Tavira and Cabanas are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a sundowner outside one of the many street cafés. Faro is about 40 minutes from Villa Alfarroba and is an easy journey with the majority via motorway where often you can drive from one exit to the next and not see any other cars! Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks, take a trip up the Guadiana, pop across to Spain, do some bird watching or just laze by the pool - there is something for everyone!

More villa details: The ground floor living area is open plan, tiled throughout with cream porcelain which give the house a lovely light and airy feel.

The kitchen is a bright citrus lime with a black granite worktop/breakfast bar. Aswell as top quality major appliances, the kitchen is fully equipped with all you could need from toasted sandwich maker to lettuce spinner and all in between!– we have a large commercial fridge as we understand the importance of keeping everything cold in the hot Summer days. We also have two dishwashers so that you will never end up with work top full of dirty dishes waiting for one dishwasher to be emptied before it can be refilled. There is a 90 cm induction hob which is a delight to cook with. There are two ovens and two warming drawers. The dining table seats 12 people when fully extended. There are three comfy sofas situated around a panoramic window with lovely views to the sea. There is a 46 inch LED television which was an indulgence but lovely!

Outside space: There is a gorgeous solar heated swimming pool with plenty of terrace and eight luxury sun beds and an external toilet and shower. There is a covered dining area with an additional sink and a large purpose built BBQ. Additionally there are several small tables and chairs surrounding the villa to sit and have a drink and enjoy the views. The garden is well planted but as the garden was recently landscaped, the plants are not yet mature..

We have a draft beer and wine machine with a flash chiller so you can have an ice cold drink whenever you want to. This is only available if pre booked, so we can buy in barrels - approx cost is 85 Euros for 30L and 65 Euros for 15L white wine.

Beaches, Restaurants and Shopping: If you can drag yourself away for our lovely villa and the beer fridge, there are so many beautiful beaches around the area. They are immaculately clean and very spacious. They do get busy in July and August but if you are prepared to take a few extra steps from the end of the walkway onto the beach, you will find plenty of space.

For a change, you can drive into Tavira and get the little ferry over to the Isla de Tavira where there is a stunning beach and lots of restaurants and bars.

There are so many nice restaurants and of course we have our favourites - in the Villa we will provide comprehensive details of our recommendations.

On the third Sunday of every month there is a market in the local village of Vila Nova de Cacela where you can pick up locally made crafts, boxes of fresh strawberries and just about anything else you can think of.

There is a shopping mall at Tavira but local shops sell fresh meat, fresh veg and home baked bread.

There is a municipal market in Tavira which is well worth a visit - freshly caught fish and lots of lovely fruit and vegetables at very good prices - ideal if you fancy a BBQ. Best to go before noon to get the best selection.

Genuine people who will do all we can to make your holiday special which we are delighted to read is reflected in our reviews.

This is pool heating with a difference....We have installed a ground source heat pump to pump the swimming pool water through the pipes layed under the pool terrace.. The result is that even today, as I write this on November 7th 2013 the swimming pool is at 29 degs! It is supplementary to the solar panel heating and since we connected it last month, we have been amazed by its efficiency.

Villa Alfarroba, so named because of the lovely, very old Alfarroba (carob) tree in our front garden, is in the little hamlet of Sta Rita, just 3km from the beautiful blue flag beach at Manta Rota. Our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive of Villa Alfarroba there are 7 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. The towns of Tavira and Cabanas are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a sundowner outside one of the many street cafés. Faro is about 40 minutes from Villa Alfarroba and is an easy journey with the majority via motorway where often you can drive from one exit to the next and not see any other cars! Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks ,take a trip up the Guadiana, pop across to Spain, do some bird watching or just laze by the pool - there is something for everyone!

Other Activities: Twitching

Golf: If you want to escape the crowds, the Eastern Algarve is perfect for golf. It is less developed and much less crowded. This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from - all within 15 minutes of Villa Alfarroba. These courses are in areas of natural beauty and are free from the development of fairway-lining villas. We are a few minutes from the prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. Although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! It is already ranked in the Top 20 in Europe & Top 100 in the world by Golf Digest USA - the only Portuguese course to achieve this ranking.

Ski: Sierra Nevada, Spain is about 400km away!!!

Notes:
Completed in 2011, it is brand new and was let for the first time in 2011. Before moving to Portugal, we built a bungalow in Kent that was televised and featured on Grand Designs in 2008 (See Hi-tech Bungalow, Maidstone). We have endeavoured to incorporate many similar technologies in Villa Alfarroba. All door thresholds are flush to floor to make access to outside terraces easy for pushchairs and wheelchairs alike as well as wheeling in suitcases! The solar heated swimming pool has a swim jet and a built in cocktail table. There is free wifi, a cinema & games room in the basement with a table tennis table, casino table, board games, DVDs, books and a CD player. It is a bit of a den and is great when it is hot or the kids want to hang out on their own. or should I say when the parents want the kids to hang out on their own!! It is a luxurious villa with everything you could want to make your holiday a perfect experience.
