The main house has a spacious lounge with Dutch TV and foreign channels, a fireplace and is open to the dining area and the kitchen. Across the width patio doors leading outside. Guest wc, reading corner, hallway to bedroom one, with two people. bed (2mx2m) and Bedroom 2 with two single beds that can be pushed together to 2 pers. bed. Both bedrooms have their own cozy bathroom with shower / WC, 1 well with bubble bath. Furthermore, a third bedroom with two single beds with patio doors to terrace with bathroom and separate playroom (table tennis / football) under the house. The terrace has a dining table a separate (safe) BBQ area and overlooks the lower larger terrace lit saltwater pool with plenty of sun loungers and outdoor shower. Mature garden with lawn and palm trees. There is wifi.

The guest house separate from the main house has two bedrooms. One bedroom with two single bed (1 90mx2m) and bathroom with shower / wc.

The site is 4 hectares large, fenced hilly terrain with an electric gate. Dogs are welcome. Straight out of the gate there is an excellent walking (no need for street stabbing on) in spring an abundance of beautiful wild flowers.

The coasts are ideal for surfing (surf schools available), body boarding or just to sunbathe on one of the many beautiful beaches (all located in protected area without buildings, where you can still find it in Southern Europe). The biggest advantage of the Western Algarve is that it is pleasantly warm during the day and the evening delicious cools, making it excellent sleep without air conditioning! Moreover, the extremely clean air, herbaceous aromas, the beautiful starry sky in the evening and the private location of the house without the remote. A true haven.

Why Marina van de Steeg-Weseman chose Abris

Situated on a private location, only 5km from the town of Aljezur with supermarkets, local fresh market with fish, vegetables and fruit, banks, postoffice and restaurants

The surroundings are authentic Portugese.

Many who have rented the property plan to do all kind of things but feel so much at home that they sometimes tend to stay in and around the house!

The clean air produces star lit skies at night and many a time you may hear the ocean roar from the guesthouse terrace.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Borbaleta is a wonderful spacious home. The immediate suroundings are one of beautiful coastlines and clean sandy beaches in protected authentic nature, unique in southern europe. No buildings on the coastline here! Lots of possibilities for Surfing and bodyboarding, seafishing, mountainbiking, etc.

Restaurants serve lovely fresh seafood and while sniffing ocean air nothing tastes better!

The easy life makes you never want to leave....

Coming home in Aljezur!

  • 5 of 5

In the middle of the beautiful surroundings of Aljezur lies this fantastic home!

When you arrive you just do not know what to choose, first to the large pool and then laze on the sun loungers, or at least look at the house first?

The moment you enter the house, it feels like coming home. Home; and still on holiday, what do you want more ?!

As we arrived at the end of the day, there was no time for us to do some shopping but here was more than enough food and drinks in the house.

In the spacious kitchen all the cupboards were filled with delicious things and supplies.

The kitchen has everything you can have a very modern furnace to an American fridge, all equally spacious and luxurious needed.

The seating area in the living room is nicely decorated and offers more than enough space for six people. Opposite the living room is a very cozy corner with two chairs, surrounded by two well-stocked bookshelves. Wonderful place to read a book in the evening.

Both bedrooms are very spacious with private bathrooms. The bathtub in the master bedroom is a real treat after a long day of sunbathing and relaxing!

It is advisable to get fresh seafood and barbeque this outside.Warranty for delicious long outdoor evenings, with wonderful views of the pool and garden.

What's also very nice: there is a book with all the favorites in / out of the area. Here you can find all the locations where you should have been, and all the important phone numbers.

It is a wonderful place where you can have a wonderfull vacation.

But also a place where you really do not want to leave .....

Amazing Summer Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 amazing weeks in this beautiful appointed houses. Everything was perfect from the arrival where the lovely owner (Marina) stocked up the fridge with the essentials like milk, bread, wine, sausages and many more, knowing that we would arrive late in the evening and wont have time to go for shopping. Once again thx a million for this. The kids and us had fun to swim in the beautiful pool or to explore the woods around the house. Both house are extremely well equipped so that we spend most of the evenings on the terrace after a nice bbq. The house are well located and it takes you around 10 minutes to the nearest supermarket and around 20 minutes to the closest beach. Due to the extremely friendly hospitality of the owning couple and the fantastic houses, we would come back again, you guys rocked!

Warm greetings from sunny Dubai

Stefan & family

Absolutely fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Casa Borbaleta, Carrascalinho, Aljezur.

We rented this beautiful property (both houses) for two weeks in August/September 2013. The main house is very spacious and beautifully decorated - the photos didn't completely capture the charm and style of the interior of both houses or the beauty and tranquility of the mature private garden & pool. We were very pleasantly surprised on our arrival as the interior space was far bigger than we had anticipated and could easily have space for a few more people. It was immaculately clean and well maintained and there was even bottled water, wine and coffee pods (for the machine) ready for us on arrival.

The kitchens were both well equipped and a pleasure to cook in, although we did eat out most evenings and would highly recommend O Paulo in Arrifana as our favourite restaurant of the holiday.

A car is probably essential although the young adults in our family did walk into Aljezur on a few occasions. It took them about 50 minutes and the taxi back cost them 10€ including a tip.

The owners were very welcoming and quick to respond to any questions. They were extremely courteous and also respected our privacy, i.e. didn't turn up to cut the grass etc without checking with us first that it was convenient. We have rented properties in various locations in Portugal and Spain over the last 20 years and this is by far the best, most peaceful and beautiful property we have stayed in, with the best owners! This is one property we would love to return to.

Aljezur's best kept secret ...

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderfully comfortable stay at Casa Borbaleta - part of me feels crazy actually giving a review … as i'd like to keep our find a secret only to be shared with a select few.

Everything had been wonderfully cleaned and prepared for our arrival including several bottles of drinking water, wine and beers as well as some essentials in the fridge ... a very thoughtful touch.

Marina, the lovely owner and renovator of this delightful villa, popped in to see us the following morning to make sure we were comfortable and check to see if everything was ok - which it was … excellent friendly service, thanks again Marina.

The villa is extremely well appointed and has everything you could want for on a self-catering holiday - the pool was cleaned whilst we were there (its done weekly) and the local supermarket is 5 mins drive away and is well stocked. There were lots of places to eat out within a 15 minute drive and there is an ample supply of huge sandy beaches - our favourite was Monte Clerigo ... i'd recommend a visit.

The views from the villa are sensational, the pool was a good size and the sun didnt stop shining! All in all - a super 10-day stay … the only downside - it was booked up the following week otherwise we would have definitely extended our stay!

This is a truly place to relax and enjoy family and friends!

Although we already knew Aljezur area and their surrounding beaches sometime ago, we had not found a place so peaceful and cool.

The two houses are really great: A principal house with two double ensuite bedrooms, a reading room and a large salon that give onto a pretty covered porch area offering views over the garden and the swimming pool, another double ensuite bedroom and playroom and, the kitchen! If you love to cook, can't find a better place, Everything you can need is provided.

The guest house has two double ensuite bedrooms too, one of them with a double bed more on a loft, the salon and a full equipped kitchen besides a porch on the west where you can rest enjoying the setting sun.

Aljezur is only 6 minutes by car!

Marina left for us more than you could need for a first meal! A full fruit basket, juice, jam, bread, milk, almond cake, butter, ham, wine ...And more than this is that she made us feel at home.

And a meat or fish BBQ in a summer night is a must!

We definitively will come back again.

herzlichen Dank, es waren für unsere Familie - 11 Personen und 2 Hunde - in jeder Hinsicht Traumferien. Das Haus - die Häuser sind perfekt eingerichtet, gemütlich und super ausgestattet. Garten und Pool einfach wunderbar. Alles gepflegt und sauber. Marina ist ein Herzensmensch und gibt alles für ihre Gäste. Wir haben in der tollen Küche herrlich gekocht, das Wohnzimmer ist urgemütlich mit Kamin, in den Schlafzimmern wunderbar geschlafen , die Bäder sind wirklich gut aushestattet, der Pool groß und sauber und der Garten blühend und voller Vögel - ein kleines Paradies für jeden von uns.

Bei unserer Anreise war der Kühlschrank gefüllt und wir haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt.

Wir kommen wieder!!!!

Herzlichst Grit&family
