About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, sleeps 8.

The Villa has 4 bedrooms, 3 in the main building and a lovely guesthouse in the garden providing a 4th bedroom, all with en-suite facilities. There is a beautifully furnished, large living/dining room and facilities include UK satellite TV, Wi-Fi, video, DVD, CD/Radio. The kitchen has been completely renovated and is fully fitted including a breakfast bar, dishwasher and washing machine. There is air-conditioning throughout, including the guesthouse, which can also provide heating in winter. There is a private swimming pool, 10Mtrs x 4Mtrs with a large sun terrace and barbeque. The gardens are lawned with flower beds and this is a lovely area when it is hot with ample shade when necessary from mature trees. Outside tables provide the opportunity to dine on the terrace by the pool, or in the garden. There are sunbeds, chairs and parasols which can be used around the terrace or gardens.

The Villa: This Villa is a real home from home. It provides a lovely, spacious and comfortable base from which you can explore the beautiful Algarve area in all seasons. Alternatively, it is a secluded and peaceful sun-trap, with shaded areas if required, to relax and unwind.

The main living areas of the Villa are on one level, including 2 of the bedrooms, the pool and terrace. There are steps up to the master bedroom on the first floor, and also down from the pool/terrace to the gardens and 4th bedroom.

The new fully fitted kitchen provides every necessity for self catering and there is also a pool-side barbeque. If you want to eat out, there are literally dozens of excellent restaurants and bars within easy reach, ranging from take away to Michelin star.

What to do: The Algarve is famous for it's wonderful beaches and climate. It is usually mild in winter, with a cooling breeze in the summer. Most activities are outdoor, with beach/watersports in summer and golf/walking/riding all the year.

There are many bars and restaurants in the area, some literally on the beach.

The towns of Loule and Faro are each 10 minutes drive away and well worth a visit, an excellent Saturday market at Loule and an interesting harbour area in Faro.

If shopping is your pleasure, there are superb complexes at Faro (Jumbo) and at Guia, about 40 minutes down the EN125 towards Portimao.

Further afield, Portimao and Lagos in the west and Tavira/Cabanas to the east are less than 1 hour's drive.

It is also quite easy to drive or take the train to Lisbon or Seville in around 2 hours, if you want to see one of these beautiful cities.

The countryside is also lovely, with Monchique, Alte and the hills north of Loule naturally spectacular.

About Roger Short

We are a mature couple with adult children and young grandchildren. The whole family love the Villa and we have had many fantastic holidays here.

Roger Short purchased this villa in 2001

Why Roger Short chose Almancil area

The Villa is really homely, secluded and safe. Although there are neighbours nearby, it is usually quiet and is not overlooked. It's also very convenient with all amenities within easy reach.

What makes this villa unique

Convenient, yet secluded. It is an easy, liveable property where you can mix with other guests or have some quiet time to yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful holiday, thanks so much. The Villa is suitable for all ages, we had small children together with my 80 year old Mother and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for being so accomodating, Roger, it was a real pleasure to deal with you and you made it so easy.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 6 who spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Atlantico; we had a fabulous time. We have been to the area before so knew the restaurants nearby - all within easy walking distance of the villa.

We found the owner extremely helpful and the amenities at the villa superb; a real home from home. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

we are a family of 5 with 3 young children, 8,6 and 3 years old. We are just back from our 2 weeks holiday in villa Atlantico and we loved it. The accommodation was exactly as described and the owners a pleasure to deal with. We especially loved the pool and garden areas, great sun trap, plenty of shade if you want it and a not overlooked. Inside the villa is very well appointed, every creature comfort is provided.

We would happily recommend this villa and hope to return next year.

excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this four bedroomed villa, the villa is exactly as described what you see is what you get, it is really clean and comfortable. It is located in a very quiet spot it is a little bit our from the shops but when you have a car then this is no problem. We had two 16yr old boys with us and they loved the local go-kartin which was only a ten min drive from the villa , they also loved the water park which was quiet close also.I would have no hesitation in reccomending this property. I found Roger a pleasure to deal with and we are hoping to return to villa Atlantico in the future.

Wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 2 weeks at Villa Atlantico. The villas is beautifully furnished and very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and plenty of outdoor loungers etc. The location is quiet and peaceful but a short drive to beaches, shops and restaurants. I would point out that if you are 2 couples with small children the 4th bedroom is in the garden and totally detached from the main house, apart from that it is a wonderful place to spend a holiday.

Villa Atlantico is located in a pleasant residential area on the outskirts of the small town of Almancil, which has all local facilities such as shops, supermarkets, banks and many bars and restaurants. It is only 20 kilometres west of the main town and airport of Faro, so there is no long journey from the airport. The market town of Loule is 7 kilometres north, which is a lovely town with a renowned Saturday market. A car is useful, but if you don't want to drive, the local taxi service is excellent. It is only about 10 minutes by car to numerous excellent golf courses, beaches, tennis, horse riding etc.

Other Activities: Water Parks, Zoomarine

Golf: The Villa is within 15 minutes drive of 10 first class golf courses. All the other courses along the Algarve are within an hour's drive. Advance bookings can be made, providing a discounted rate for green fees.
