Make a holiday apartment in Raposeira your home away from home

Raposeira is one of the small localities that make up the small town of Vila do Bispo which, in turn, is part of the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Vila do Bispo is a town that marries the new with the old with a town centre characterised by medieval architecture and surrounded by more modern constructions. In addition to a plethora of attractions, visitors staying in Raposeira holiday homes will have many restaurants to choose from. They will also be close enough to the locality’s pristine beaches to be able to embark on basking sessions without any trouble. Staying in the Raposeira holiday homes is a great experience in itself as the villas and apartments are spacious, tastefully furnished and surrounded by immaculate yards. Some of these Raposeira holiday rentals have swimming pools and command spectacular views.

-Beaches: The uncrowded beaches of this part of Algarve provides a unique experience for visitors as they ingest amazing views. This part of Algarve is blessed with beautiful countryside which features stretches of unspoilt beaches, over 20 in total. Those looking for a secluded spot for a romantic beachside picnic will find plenty of these here.

-Water sports: There are a number of exciting activities those staying in Raposeira holiday homes will have access to. These include scuba diving courtesy of a number of diving centres which provide both lessons for beginners and the necessary gear. During the cooler season visitors will find perfect surfing conditions.

-Golf: Vila do Bispo is home to a lovely golf course in the name of Parque da Floresta. This picturesque facility is located on a hillside and is dotted with palm trees as well as a number of ponds and rivers. Both amateurs and more seasoned golfers will enjoy the bunkers and other challenges presented by the course.

-Historical attractions: History buffs won’t have to travel too far from their Raposeira holiday homes to behold the majesty of the 18th century church whose tower dominates the Vila do Bispo landscape. This edifice is simply a work of art; on the gilded altar is a captivating statue of Our Lady of the Conception and there are wonderfully decorated blue tiles that cover the central nave. The town itself, with its quaint, whitewashed houses and narrow streets, is a picture of medieval existence.

-Ancient fortress: For another history lesson visitors should visit the fortress that is said to have been built on the site of Saint Vicente’s grave. This structure houses a lighthouse that is an improvement on a beacon installed in 1515 to guide ships safely to shore. Also within the fortress is a monastery of Hieronymite Friars.

                                                                                                    My now husband & I stayed at villa Santa Maria for 4 weeks in May 2016 as our base for our Portugal wedding The location is perfect, only a few mins drive to the local villages of Salema, Burgau & Luz a bit further as well as being very close to the Parque da Floresta golf course which was an added bonus for my husband! The local intermarche is less than 10 mins by foot and very handy indeed. Now to the villa………… The space in this place is amazing, 5 great sized bedrooms, 3 upstairs all with en suite and 2 more downstairs with a bathroom to share, although for the majority of the 4 weeks, it was just us and our 2 border collies we couldn’t have asked for a better place. The kitchen area which has been newly extended was a perfect space for us to cook and entertain our friends who had come out for the wedding, and the fact it goes straight out to the fabulous pool and terrace area was just perfect, as so many of the properties in Portugal tend to have the pool off bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with tableware, glasses, cutlery etc so we were really able to make it a home from home during our long stay. The pool area was amazing, a total suntrap with sunshine from 9am until it sets in the evening, and as the property is set into the hills, it is completely sheltered from the famous algarve breeze you often get! Another great addition to the outside space is a new covered table area, which was a welcome rest area when the sun became too much for some! A great sized living room too, but to be honest, we spent 99% of our time in the kitchen or outside having BBQs and enjoying the pool! Nazare the cleaner was a delight to see each morning, although she speaks very little English (but much more than we speak Portuguese!!) we got along really well with her & her husband. Kathy has been a pleasure to deal with, during the wedding planning, I changed our dates several times, and she was always more than accommodating to our requests. It’s safe to say we had a great time, in fact we are already booked to return this September!! We have been coming to the same part of Portugal for almost 8 years now, and this is certainly one of the best places we have stayed for location, and the house itself and what it offers. A fantastic villa for families, groups of friends or anyone who just loves to have their own pool and great space at an affordable cost! *****

Great to relax in and good food (large wine 1 euro !). Many thanks to Phil for the very efficient booking process and quickly dealing with any query/questions,we will be back.

My two boys aged 10 and 12 loved the pool, local beeches, and near by golf course and tennis courts. The villa was well equipped and had everything that we could possibly wish for and more. It was extremely clean, comfortable and spacious. My favourite spot had to be the top terrace, where you can enjoy the panoramic views, Algarve sunshine and soak up the peace and tranquillity all from the comfort of your own villa. Thank you for a wonderful stay.We will definitely be back :O)
