Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Carvoeiro / Lagoa region - Villa Grande Porches Algarve

High Spec Private Pool Games Room Sleep 12/16 Beautifully Furnished

This beautiful villa is located on the Hill Top over looking the picturesque Village of Porches. The Villa is set in a large enclosed garden and is approached by a long drive, lined on either side by immaculate, landscaped gardens. Two large stone lions guard the front door which in turn leads to a spacious entrance hall. The living and dining room have comfortable sofas around two unusual glass coffee tables and the large glass dining table seats up to 12 persons. Several sets of sliding doors lead to a shaded outside dining terrace with comfortable seating for up to 16 persons and an enormous table and steps down to the swimming pool and garden. The modern kitchen is very well equipped with a large fridge/freezer and additional Fridge and additional Freezer. There is a central cooking island and a separate laundry area. The basement has been converted into a huge games/chill out room with numerous squishy leather sofas, table football, pool table and table tennis. The unusual swimming pool is surrounded by lawn, it has a separate children’s section and LED lighting for night swimming.

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.

About Alfie

'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

Why Alfie chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region

Villa Grande is very special indeed. The design, facilities and location is perfect for relaxation and entertaining

Ok would not return

  • 2 of 5

Overcome by ants everywhere, cleaner did not clean the house once and pool needed cleaning more regularly. Owner was very difficult to reach when trying to get deposit back, would not go back or recommend

Owner's Response: This party stayed at our Villa during mid August of 2012 and expressed their concern regarding the Maid Service to our Villa Manager on the day of their departure. Our investigation then led to the Maid's dismissal both in terms of the lack of service as well as an 'attitude'. The party did not mention any concern regarding 'ants' or did they refer to any issues regarding the 'pool'. The security deposit was refunded on the 30th day post their departure, 9 days later than the 21 day deadline we usually impose . The last message we received from the party leader following our apology concerning the Maid Service read as follows: 'Thanks Alfred, much appreciated, as I said before we loved the villa and that was our only "blip" '

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic 2 week family holiday, 11 of us stayed and lots of fun was had in the pool. We ate outside every night and the games room was very popular. The villa and grounds are kept very clean and tidy and the house keeper made us very welcome. Would recommend to friends and other family members. The owner of the villa answered all my questions and the description of the villa was accurate. Fun was had by all.

Beautiful house, nice garden!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 13 people in this luxury house for one week. Both kids and grown up's enjoyed the generous size of the house, the bedrooms and the garden area. The pool was big and clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. The gameroom in the basement was popular - getting som rest from the sun. Every meal was enjoyed outside. Short drive to beaches and Aqualand/Supersplash. A perfect stay, we will gladly return!

VILLA GRANDE DO SOL

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of friends stayed at the wonderful VILLA GRANDE DO SOL in March 2013. We chose the villa for location, its size and style, barbecue as well as the pool area. The villa is a true 5 star and wow's you from the start. I would visit here again and have recommended it to friends.

A Five Star Top Quality Villa

  • 5 of 5

The design of the villa is superb and caters excellently for large groups. It is fitted out with quality furniture and is well equipped with everything you would expect to find in your own home and probably more. In-door and particularly out-door dining is a luxury and the out-door veranda is a very peaceful place to spend a few hours reading a book or browsing with an iPad.

We had lots of fun in the pool and having BBQ's and with Porches only a couple of minutes walk away restaurants were in easy reach. The villa was kept very clean by a hard working local lady who was able to answer the few questions we had.

A high boundary hedge provides privacy and security for adventurous youngsters and is supplemented by key controlled entry gates.

Thank you Alfred - we had a wonderful holiday and would quite happily recommend Villa Grande to others.
