About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool. Sea views

Sandhills is a lovely, secluded villa with a private pool. It has 3 spacious bedrooms (2 double, one with en-suite bathroom, and one twin), an ample living room and well equipped kitchen. It can comfortably sleep 6 with cots available for infants.

Being only 10 years old, Sandhills is a modern, open plan, single storey villa, with doors opening directly onto the terrace area from the back bedrooms and kitchen allowing easy flow from the outside terrace and pool area to the inside. It equipped with broadband, TV, Bluray player, satellite channels and a selection of DVDs, books and games, as well as a stereo with ipod dock. The kitchen includes everything you will need for your holiday from coffee machine, blender, large fridge freezer, dishwasher, all cooking equipment and serving dishes and utensils. Washing machine is available in the garage.

Sandhills is perfectly located (within the Costa Vicentina National Park), for both an active holiday or a quiet retreat. Situated on the edge of the Vale de Telha urbanisation, it is close to local shops, and Monte Clerigo village and beach is just 2km away. What's more it is just a short drive from many other amazing local beaches, amenities, shops and restaurants. The area is an incredible location for any ability level of surfing, body boarding, cycling, rock climbing, wake boarding, kite surfing or horse riding. Or you can simply discover the un-spoilt splendour of this area by walking along the Rota Vicentina, which is a long distance path (350km in total) along the SW coast of Portugal, part of which is the Fishermen's Trail which passes infront of the house.

Aljezur is a small town just 10 minute drive away and has a large supermarket with fresh meat/fish counter, municipal market with fresh fish and vegetables and many restaurants, cafes and surf and gift shops.


Take N120 north of Lagos. As you approach Aljezur, turn left towards Monte Clerigo and Arrifana. At T junction, turn right and continue for 7km to Monte Clerigo. Pass through the village and take the beach road up out of the village. Sandhills is 2km from the beach on the right hand side.

About Cheryl Haddy

We are the Frasers and we bought our Portuguese home in the Spring 2014, after countless fabulous family holidays in the area.

Our children are now 15 and 12 and we've been coming here for all our family life. The kids still love it as much as we do. There is always something for them to do, whether it is surfing, biking, rock climbing, lounging by the pool, or some days we will head south and go to a water park, coasteering or spend a day on the south coast where the beaches are very different.

What we like most about the area is it's similarity to Devon (where we live) and Cornwall, but with guaranteed sun!

The villa is the best we've stayed in as it flows so well from inside to outside with double doors from both back bedrooms to the patio and pool area. The patio is wonderful sun trap, completely secluded and protected from any wind.

Cheryl Haddy purchased this villa in 2014

Why Cheryl Haddy chose Aljezur

We were looking for a property in the vicinity, but this one stood out against everything else we'd seen or stayed in, due to its simplicity, its layout and use of space. Charlie's parents bought a property near Faro in the 70s and Charlie spent many summers in the area. Today, the west coast is like the south coast was 50 years ago. But the beauty is that we are within a national park and the area is protected from mass development.

What makes this villa unique

We like sitting out at the front early in the morning and looking at and listening to the sea. We can spend all day at the villa and then love to head down to the beach at 4pm for a surf.

We love watching our kids safely surfing in the sea.

We love the sweet smell of eucalyptus as we approach the area from Lagos.

Sehr gute Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin. Für die erste Mahlzeit war gesorgt, Bettwäsche und Handtücher wurden wöchentlich gewechselt. Die Strandnähe, der schöne Pool und die herrliche Umgebung haben uns einen unvergesslichen Urlaub ermöglicht! Vielen Dank!

Tolle Lage, schönes Haus für perfekten Urlaub an der Costa Vicentina

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage hätte nicht besser sein können für einen Wander-/Badeurlaub an der Costa Vicentina. Das Guestbook des Vermieters enthielt gute Tipps, die den Urlaub von Anfang an erholsam gemacht haben. Der Kontakt war super und jede Frage wurde sofort und geduldig beantwortet.

Estadia no Vale da Telha

  • 5 of 5

A propriedade é excelente, e condiz com o que é prometido. Muito bem situada, fica a cerca de 2.5Km da praia numa zona calma. A casa estava muito limpa e em excelentes condições.

Gostei particularmente da atenção com que recebem as pessoas, desde um pequeno livro para quem não conhece a zona com dicas do que é possível fazer, passando pelo conteúdo da casa.

Os quartos (3) são razoáveis e as camas confortáveis.

A zona de jardim e a piscina são bastante agradáveis.

A voltar seguramente

The Algarve is well known to most for the plethora of holiday activities including kayaking, scuba diving, grotto trips, paraponting, dolphin watching... the list goes on. The Western Algarve on the other hand, is beautifully quiet, tucked away and almost forgotten. As you climb up the west coast from Lagos, the peace and tranquillity sets in as does the delicious smell of eucalyptus. Slightly cooler than the south coast, temperatures on the west coast still exceed 30' in summer and some lovely, warm balmy days can be had in winter.

Sandhills is situated within the Costa Vicentina National Park, where peace and tranquillity reign supreme. The most usual background sounds are birdsong and the crashing of waves on the pristine beaches.

Declared a protected area The National Park boasts rolling hills, marshland, imposing cliffs, rocky coves and beautiful beaches ranging from broad expanses of sand to tiny inaccessible coves. Sports anglers flock to the Costa Vicentina to fish the waters rich in sea bass, dory, conger eels and bream. The area is also a surfer's paradise. The unbroken waves rolling in from the Atlantic are perfect for training and perfecting surfing skills. Even in the height of the summer season you can find almost deserted beaches along this coastal paradise. And the sunsets are breathtaking.
