To have a good idea of the property we made a film.You can watch it on www.youtube.be and search for Monte das Estrelas.Entering through automatic gates, the brand new villa is on top of a hill.Opening the front door you will see a livingroom(60 m2),luxury kitchen with AEG appliances(35 m2),utilityroom with washingmachine and dryer(6 m2).There is also a guest toilet.Through the hallway the 4 en-suite bedrooms are reached(including bathrooms 27,22,18 and 18 m2)The Master has walk-in closets.The used materials are top-end quality
Hello!I am dutch and have been a certified accountant in the Netherlands.The last 18 years being involved in real estate in Portugal.We build the villa and are very proud of the result!Most amazing views around and close to everything.We believe this a one of a kind property!
F.J.Ronda purchased this villa in 2015
As already said,this is a very special location.Breathtaking views and seaview from all frontrooms and terraces.The materials used are of the highest possible quality and are very proud that everything turned out the way we planned!Of course not unimportant,close to the beautiful,white, sandy beaches of theAtlantic!
The big pool with the 360 degrees views and the unspoilt scenery will make you fall in love with the villa.
I have mixed feelings about writing this review. Firstly, I want everyone to know what a fantastic two weeks we spent at this fantastic villa but secondly, I want to keep it a secret so that we can go back again next year!
Apparently we were only the fourth family to stay here and being a new build everything was unspoilt and in first class condition. The accommodation is great, the pool is great, the views are great, the isolation and peace is great, the comfort of the beds is great - I'm sure you are getting the idea.......??
This property is not suited for young children being situated on a steep hilltop and a car is a necessity (especially one that can get up the relatively steep slope onto the property). However, you will be well rewarded if you are looking for a holiday where rest and relaxation is key. My wife, 2 teenage daughters and I basically camped ourselves here for the whole two weeks and ate in every night. We love making the most of alfresco dining and we were able to do this every night, next to the pool enjoying the stunning views and night setting. What was an added bonus is that not one of us got bitten during the whole holiday and we did not even have to use the plug in mosquito deterrents or sprays.
We had no major issues and the few queries we had were dealt with quickly by either the very enthusiastic and friendly Rachel or via direct contact from Fred who is a real star and hell bent on making your holiday one to remember.
The four bedrooms are all very comfortable and spacious with good bathrooms and nice thick mattresses on the beds which is often overlooked in most properties. The huge lounge is equally comfortable and the kitchen has all the necessary mod cons for families like us who do not eat out much.
The villa, whilst offering isolation is not too far from Altura, Castro Marim, Vila Real all of which have good supermarkets. Praiaverde is also close by if you are looking for a great beach complete with nature reserve.
If you want to just laze by the pool the 10x5m salt water pool is wondrous and surrounded by 8 good quality and comfortable sun beds.
This was simply one of the best holidays my family have ever experienced so recommend it highly. Please just do not book the first two weeks of August as we will probably want those dates again next year!
We've been back in the UK for almost a week now and the Post Holiday Blues are still going strong – Fred's property was SPECTACULAR and an absolute joy to call home for our 10 day holiday.
Positively stunning architecture and slick interior design, plus so many intuitive yet simplistic mod-cons.
The villa manager Rachel was a star and so welcoming! And Fred was an absolute gentleman, checking in with us on our second day to ensure we were settled and had everything we needed. They even provided a welcome hamper with an array of breads/cheeses/olives and wine!! The perfect start to our trip.
And when you need additional supplies, just pop to the local supermarket about 10mins away in Altura – their bread selection is amazing (and so cheap.) You'll also find a brilliant meat counter, plus a vast (albeit stinky) fish counter!
The location is ideal if you're happy to drive – watch out for that steep hill though, leading up to the electronic gate (our little Punto had to get a bit of a run up!) But you are rewarded with a lovely drive and secure garage once you get to the top.
Inside is everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is very well equipped (so much cutlery, stylish crockery and the ever-handy coffee maker!) There's even a box of garden games stashed in the utility room – we enjoyed many delightful evenings playing boules with a glass of wine, as the sun set over the mountains.
We felt incredibly well cared for – the lovely cleaning ladies came three times during our stay to replenish the towels and make the beds. Very luxurious! The pool guys were also super efficient and discreet, just popping in and out without disturbing our routine.
The setting is idillic and the property so private, yet also within easy driving distance of some charming towns and coastal hamlets (Castro Marim and Cacela Velha), as well as great resorts. Praia Verde was a particular favourite of ours – beautiful resort surrounded by lush greenery, with brilliant restaurants, sea views and easy access to the beach. Restaurante Pézinhos Na Areia and the Guarita bar are definitely worth a visit.
You've also got the picturesque town of Tavira just down the road, boasting an abundance of whitewashed buildings, striking churches and Roman architectural influences. It's also got fabulous gift shops and great places to eat!!
In conclusion, we couldn't have asked for a better holiday. A retreat in Fred's breathtaking property is a MUST!
The luxurious golfe course of Monte Rei is only 2 km away.Praia Verde Resort with bars,restaurants and pine forest, with white sandy beaches is only 10 km away.The casino in Monte Gordo is well known as is the town of Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio.The closest beach is 8 min driving away.Away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, but within minutes driving to the coast when you want to be there.
