Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Lagos region - Vivenda Melanda

5 Bedrooms, spacious living areas, terraces, gardens and pool

An exceptional and peaceful villa offering guests every comfort and convenience situated in an elevated position with incredible sea views. Everything has been designed and arranged with guests in mind. The house offers 5 double bedrooms, 2 en suite bathrooms plus two additional bathrooms in the main house. Beside the pool there is a large games room with bar area offering table tennis, darts and board games plus a wet room shower and wc.

The focal point of the house is the attractive open plan kitchen and dining area which opens into a conservatory and the living room. On the kitchen terrace is an outdoor barbecue, and outside the conservatory is one of several lovely terraces which are perfect for al fresco living and meals. Steps lead from this terrace to the pool - please note that young children must be supervised closely at all times.

The western Algarve region boasts some of the most scenic coastal areas in Portugal and the Costa Vicente Natural Park status of the coastal areas from Luz to Sagres and Aljezur ensures that this area remains mostly natural and unspoiled.

The nearby town of Praia da Luz has several supermarkets and a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafes.

You can walk the coastal cliff path to Praia da Luz in approx 15 minutes . The nearby beaches of Burgau and Salema are also very popular with guests.

The nearest larger town for shopping is Lagos.

Local attractions include Zoo Lagos and from the Lagos Marina you can take boat excursions along the coast or book a dolphin watching trip.

Surfers will enjoy the famous surfing beaches along the Alentejo coast - Amado Beach also has surf schools where you can book lessons and hire boards and wetsuits.

About Hometeam Reservations

Vivenda Melanda has been owned by the Winscom family since the 1970's and in 2011 it was completely re-modelled and updated to bring the villa up to date. At this point, with a significant financial investment into the property, it was decided to offer the villa to discerning guests for rental. Hometeam were appointed to manage the villa and are delighted to be able to welcome old and new friends to Vivenda Melanda.

A large piece of heaven

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VERY LATE REVIEW AND AS I HAD TO PROVIDE AN ARRIVAL DATE I CHOSE THE EARLIEST THAT I COULD - we actually stayed here in July 2013 and I should have left this review long ago as this villa so deserves recognition. Having just taken a UK holiday I was reviewing places on TripAdvisor and thought I'd check if Vivenda Melanda was on there and what people had to say about it - unfortunately it doesn't appear on there but a google search brought this review page up so I thought I would rectify my oversight at long last! This was a fabulous villa with everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you could need and the views were to die for! The place wass kept spotless and Maria, the housekeeper, who came in every day except Sunday was so helpful and friendly. All the rooms were a great size and the kitchen extremely well equipped. Even when the hand blender stopped working Maria came in the next day with a brand new one. The pool and gardens were wonderful, very well kept and there was ample parking behind secure gates. It was a pleasant 15-20 minute walk to the local village which had ample shops and facilities. It should be noted that the photos do not show the glass security panels that had since been erected around the upper terrace and there was a gate to stop inquisitive toddlers from accessing the pool area without supervision. We know in almost two years things may well have changed but we have no doubt that these will only be good changes as from our experience it was obvious the owners were really dedicated to providing clients with the best possible holiday experience that they could. We will always remember our holiday at Vivenda Melanda, nowhere yet has come up to the high standard of this villa and its surroundings and we hope one day to return.
