Situated at only 5 minutes from a small city, 15mn from the beach and set on a rural environment with full privacy, Vargem das Colmeias has treated our family very well over the years. Memories of long hot Summers and Winter's cold enough just to have a good excuse to light up the fireplace and enjoy a bottle of fine red wine will live on with us forever.
Built in 1998 and drawn by an architect in the family, Vargem das Colmeias is surrounded by 16 acres of land and forest with a high peak with a magnificent 360º view ranging all the way to the sea and 'round to Santiago's Castle.
The Villa itself is beautiful as you can see for yourself in the photos and is equipped with most modern amenities. The Villa consists of a Main Bedroom, located on the top floor of the house which is equipped with a spacious dressing room, a luxurious bathroom and a veranda overlooking the pool and garden area. There are 6 other double bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and if you have the need to accommodate more family or guests, you have access to a cozy little guest house where 4 to 8 more people can comfortably stay.
There are two large and comfortable living rooms, one is directed at comfort and socializing and the second one for entertainment (TV, Pool Table, Stereo System). There is also a dining room.
The front of the house leads to a beautiful garden with a 20 meter long pool which has a lovely wooden shack serving as support, providing shade, a refrigerator and a table for 20.
Our own personal staff is included. They will tend to your rooms, to the garden and pool area. Antonio and Dana have been with us for a good ten years now, they are amazing people and absolutely trustworthy.
Vargem das Colmeias is located approximately a 1h30m drive from both Lisbon and Faro airports, right in the Costa Alentejana, a privileged part of the Portuguese coast, where you can find peace and quiet or entertainment, depending on your mood. Same to be said for the beaches, you can find yourself a deserted beach or one with restaurants and consequently more people.
I could write all day along about our beautiful house and how amazing the Costa Alentejana is in every sense but now that you got a taste from the pictures, come find for yourself or give me a call so we can talk some more, I'll tell you everything you'd like to know. See you soon.
