Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Boliqueime - Villa Stofero

The three-bedroom villa sleeps six, and contains a private pool and sauna.

Villa Stofero is a stylishly built and constantly renovated (2006) and a well maintaned old farmhouse with a floor area of about 180 sq.m. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms with a common bathroom. Next to the bedrooms is the spacious living and dining area with a separate WC. The adjoining kitchen, which has been completely furnished and is well equipped, has everything that a cook could wish for. In the library, a large collection of books, CDs, and vinyl records are available. The master bedroom (about 30 sq.m) is located on the first floor, and contains an en-suite bathroom (renovated in 2015) and a private covered balcony. In front of the house, there is a covered veranda with a fully-equipped barbecue area and an open-air shower. For private parties, we have converted the former bakery into a bar. You can host parties here, no one will mind. For the somewhat chilly spring days, there is a small sauna for your enjoyment (fee applies).

Information: We also rent another nearby property, Casa Rosa. Its amenities include two bedrooms, one bathroom with WC and bathtub, a terrace on the upper level, as well as a kitchen, dining room, and living room with veranda on the lower level. Please send us an e-mail with the subject 'Casa Rosa'.

On your arrival, you will find a fruit basket, coffee, milk and mineral water. The house has a private bar, already stocked with drinks, which you can feel free to use. You can also hold a small summer evening party with friends and acquaintances. No one will mind.

Nearby excursions: Swim in the river, just 3 km from the house (can be reached on foot or by car). The small brook has a waterfall and natural swimming pool, and is completely free of tourists. Nearby there are several outstanding, if expensive, international restaurants: São Gabriel, Amadeus, Vincenz, Hermitage, Evaristo, and so on. We would also be happy to give you some insider tips on the local delicacies, which are not always easy to find.

Discotheques, nightclubs, and casinos: Vilamoura has a large casino, and there is a nice beach disco in Vale de Lobo. Vilamoura and St Eulelia beach offer sunset parties, and there are numerous clubs and bars in Albufeira and Vilamoura. For the young-at-heart, Boliqueime itself has Portugal's largest disco, Kadoc.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa!! The owner Naomi has thought of everything from coffee machine to shopping bags, just so much attention to detail which made our stay perfect! This was luxury at its best and I would most definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Algarve. Naomi was a delightful host and we miss both her and the villa very much! The surrounding areas are definitely worth a visit - Loule, Quarteira, Albufeira, Portimao and Lagos (our favourite). The local bar, Coopers is also a must. Such friendly staff and only a 3 min drive from the villa. We had a perfect holiday, thank you Naomi!

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Stofero was the perfect location for our Algarve vacation. The house, pool and grounds were so inviting that we never wanted to leave. We had everything we needed as the house is fully equipped from the kitchen, to the bar, to the pool, to the outside cooking area. Noemi made it a special place and a special time. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place that will give you a real feel for Portugal and the countryside. We loved the location. We hope to return again very soon.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Stofero exceeded expectations by a long mile (and our expectations were high before we arrived!). The villa itself quickly became the main focus of our holiday, giving us the feeling that we really didn't need to go anywhere else. It was peaceful, clean, inviting, and equipped with everything one could need while on holiday.

Noemi was the perfect "hostess", easy to contact with any queries and simply put a very nice person. We not only missed the villa when we left but we also missed Noemi.

We would highly recommend Villa Stofero.

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Ein Aufenthalt in der Villa Stofero ist äusserst empfehlenswert. Gut und schnell von der Autobahn zu erreichen wird man von einem schönen Panorama und von einer sehr netten Gastgeberin empfangen. Die Villa ist sehr sauber und bietet neben zwei Rooftop-Terrassen für die Sonnenuntergänge weitere sehr gemütliche Orte zum Entspannen. Dazu kommt eine Bar, in der günstig Getränke gekauft werden können. Der Pool mit anliegender Lounge gehört zu den perfekten Entspannungsferien natürlich auch dazu. Mit genügend Schlafmöglichleiten und auch Fernseher, Trinkwasserfilter, Waschmaschine etc. ausgestattet bietet die Villa wirklich alles, um sich für die Dauer der Ferien zuhause zu fühlen. Nochmals: Sehr empfehlenswert!

Immer wieder Villa Stofero

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Juli 2014 bei Noemi zu Gast. Ein wunderschönes und super ausgestattetes Haus hat uns empfangen. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und immer hilfsbereit. Die Lage des Hauses ist sehr ruhig und lädt zum Entspannen ein.

Unser Urteil: Immer wieder gerne Noemie und Villa Stofero
