Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Vale de Parra - Stunning views, heated pool

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, stunning views and pool heating available for a supp.

Set in a commanding position above the sought after area of Vale De Parra, Villa Mirante is a recently modernised, traditional Algarve villa. It's in a fantastic, quiet location with stunning far-reaching views, and within walking distance of some shops and restaurants. There is also the added bonus of pool heating which is available for a weekly supplement.

The gated entrance leads to parking for several cars, and stairs from here lead up to the pool terrace and entry to the villa. Inside, the house is spacious and bright with comfortable furnishings. On the ground floor there's a large lounge with two leather sofas, plus two comfortable leather chairs, TV and DVD player, plus complimentary wi-fi internet. Patio doors from the lounge lead to the large pool terrace. Also on the ground floor is a fully fitted kitchen, a dining area, and a laundry room with an extra fridge.

There are four bedrooms - two doubles and two twins - all are air-conditioned and tastefully decorated in bright, summery tones mixed with traditional furnishings. On the ground floor there's a double and a twin bedroom which share a shower bathroom. The twin bedroom has patio doors leading to the pool terrace. On the first floor there's a double room with an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, and a twin bedroom also with an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. Both of these bedrooms on the first floor had patio doors leading to the upper terrace and the views from here are spectacular - over the countryside and Vale De Parra, and down to the sea.

Outside there's a fantastic covered dining terrace which overlooks the swimming pool, a brick-built barbecue and poolside shower. The large pool is 12m x 5m and can be heated for £175 per week. There are great views from the pool terrace which is in-keeping with the rest of the villa.

It is possible to walk to several restaurants and the nearest supermarket in around 15 minutes, and there are a choice of beaches within 2 kilometres.

Villa Mirante is the perfect base for a group of friends or families, who like to enjoy the benefits of a private villa holiday whilst being able to venture out individually, or as a group, and enjoy what the nearby resort and beaches have to offer.

Outstanding Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was simply perfect for the needs of our family of 8 adults. There is absolutely everything that you could possibly need from washing line & pegs to outstanding views.

It is extremely spacious (the photos really do not give it justice) and spotlessly clean.

The air con & free wi fi were an absolute bonus having young adults constantly on social media, just make sure you switch it on when you arrive.

There are plenty hangers in the wardrobes for those who prefer to hang up their clothes rather than live out of a suitcase.

It has more than enough cutlery, plates etc to do family cooking and the kitchen was just like being at home. Having 2 fridge freezers was also an added bonus.

I would highly recommend having a car and don't be put off when you come to a dirt track road to reach the property. The Villa is set back on its own, with only a couple of others in the distance. It is ideal and we felt safe enough. (There was noise from dogs in the distance during the night but not too bad)

The gardens are quite spectacular and again the photos do not do this area justice. The pool area and BBQ were well used and there was loads of 'pool toys' for adults & chidren alike. But pay a visit to the local beach about 15 minute drive away. It is fabulous.

The Villa is about 12 minute drive from the Algarve Shopping Centre and is definitely worth a visit. There is a huge supermarket here that came recommended by a friend. You will get everything here to stock up with your weekly shop and it is much cheaper than the local supermarket.

There is a wee pub on the corner of the main road at the bottom of the Villa beside the 'donkey roundabout'. We wished we had found it sooner. We went to watch the football and sat outside in the lovely evening sunshine. Through the back there is a dart board, pool table & football table. Worth a visit for the cocktails alone though.

Albufeira is a pretty straight road away and about 15 minutes in the car. If you like the business of this then you have the best of both worlds.

I honestly couldn't recommend this Villa highly enough. It was exactly what we needed for our family holiday. Thank you to John at Perfect Villa Escapes for his advice and information prior to us booking.
