Villa Cerro da Velha is private and secluded. This spacious villa is fitted out and furnished to a very high standard. It has 4 generous bedrooms, all with en-suite bath or shower rooms and built in wardrobes and a 5th children's bedroom. There is a separate cloakroom off the entrance hall. Bedroom 1, which has a super king size double bed, links through to a good sized bedroom 5, with bunk beds suitable for 2 children. There is shared access to the master bathroom via a dressing area with extensive built-in wardrobes, so the bedroom 1 and bedroom 5 function together as a family suite. Cots (there are 2 available but more could be sourced if needed) can be provided for babies and toddlers on request and can be placed in any of the bedrooms (they are large enough to accept cots), or in bedroom 5 instead of the bunk beds. There are a further three twin bedrooms with good quality, comfortable beds. All 5 bedrooms have direct access to external paved areas via sliding glass terrace doors, fitted with electrically operated shutters. One of the bedrooms has step-free access which makes it suitable for occupancy by guests with restricted mobility, who are not readily able to use stairs. There is a safe for your use in the master bedroom dressing area.
The 12m pool is on the south side of the villa, so is sheltered from the prevailing wind and is completely private. It gets the sun all day, as does the outdoor eating area which is also sheltered from the sea breezes. The pool is fenced with gated access. Pool heating is available for a modest additional cost. In the garden area there is a lawn that is great for children to run about and play on. There is direct access from the pool and garden to 4 of the 5 bedrooms (including the children's room), which makes changing and showering after a swim very straightforward.
There is a large hall leading to the generous open plan living space with separate sitting and dining areas. The dining area opens onto the outdoor eating and bar-b-que terrace. There is a TV with the resort channels in analogue mode and a digital satellite box with most UK free view channels available. The second TV in the master bedroom is linked to the resort channels (which are in a variety of languages including English, German, Portuguese and Spanish). There are DVD players and a music system with an iPod dock.
The large kitchen is fully fitted and equipped. There is a bar counter with 4 bar stools for those who like to sit and keep the cook company with a glass of wine, or get up early for a light breakfast. A separate laundry room leads off the kitchen with a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
The views from the terrace that runs around the whole of the living area are stunning, particularly when the sun is setting. The soft sounds of the surf breaking on the beach down the hill can just be heard, which adds to the magic of the place.
If you wish to rent the villa in winter, it has thermostatically controlled underfloor electric heating and a wood burner in the main living room. Logs can be supplied and the rental charges for winter use include the cost of the heating.
The villa was built in 2008 but only sold in 2013. We are the first owners. It is very special indeed and we are pleased to offer it for rental to guests, whom we expect will enjoy it and the Silver Coast region of Portugal as much as we do. In return, we ask that you care for it as if it were your own. If there are any problems, Elisa Jorge and her colleagues at Silver Coast Living are on hand to help. If there are any breakages, or if something is not functioning as it should, please report them to Elisa and her team, so that she can attend to them. We ask that you fill in our visitors book when you leave and if you have any suggestions, we would be pleased to receive them. Please leave feedback on HomeAway if you have time. Thank you.
The villa is a no smoking property and pets are not permitted.
Floor plans can be provided by email if required.
We operate a cancellation policy but, if you cancel, we shall endeavour to re-let the villa, so that we can refund to you the cancellation charge or the proportion thereof that we are able to recover. If we offer the villa at a discount or for a shorter period than you booked it for to secure a rental, we shall keep you informed and pay you the balance, once we have recovered the full rental charge for your booking period, less the cancellation charge you will have paid.
