Villa Fumone is a beautiful home located 5km behind the beachfront and the city of Portimão - in a quiet and exclusive development started in the 70's and, as a result with grown trees. At the time, building plots were set at a minimum size of 2000sqm - therefore there is no dense building.
Villa Fumone served us as our home when we worked and lived in the Algarve - we are a Swiss family. When we bought it, the house was half the size, the garden abandoned and there was no pool. The home was completely refurbished and extended with a nice overflow pool added in 1998.
Today, it offers roughly 250sqm of living space on one floor - 4 bedrooms, 2 of them with en-suite bathrooms, the two others sharing an en-suite bathroom between them. There is a separate guests toilet in the entrance hall.
The master bedroom offers a king size bed, en-suite bathroom with separate shower and bath, access to the terrace and pool - the smaller room to the back of the house a queen size bed and en-suite bathroom with shower and then there are two bedrooms with two single beds (twin bedrooms) each - these two rooms share a bathroom with separate shower and bath located between them. The bathroom has direct access to the garden - if the rooms are used by children, this is very practical.
The home is orientated WEST/SOUTH - thus benefiting from wonderful afternoons and evenings. The large and covered terracotta terrace - with BBQ - invites you for al freso breakfast, lunch and diner. When rebuilding the house, the kitchen has been placed for it to be adjacent to the terrace. The large windows and a sliding door overlook the garden and pool area - sometimes convenient to supervise children.
The pool is one of the few overflow pools in the area and benefits from a special cleaning system functioning on salt and ions. Therefore you will not feel the unpleasant smell of chlorine on your skin after using the pool.
In the surroundings you will find a minimum supply of shops, allowing you to get the daily necessities - we will be happy to indicate the private bakery where bread is still baked in a wood stove. For large shopping, the center of the nearby city of Portimão will offer all you need and is a 10 minute drive by car away.
Make sure you visit the many, small and hidden beaches of the Western Algarve - or just go to Alvor respectively Lagos to layout on the large bay of Lagos.
Golfers probably find more choice than they can manage to play during their visit. Villa Fumone is located just behind Penina Championship Golf and in front of Morgado and Alamos Golf.
For fun, restaurants and entertainment, the home is 10 to 15 minutes from the old fishing town of Alvor where you can find most everything you need.
The small airfield of Alvor, accessible to private planes, is also about 10 minutes drive from Villa Fumone.
One small hint: please be careful when looking up "Urbanização Serra e Mar". There is a development with the almost IDENTICAL name in Alvor / Portimão - the name is only turned around and is called "Mar e Serra"! Make sure you are looking at "Serra e Mar" in Alcalar/Mexilhoeira Grande!
We are happy to answer any questions you might have - in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Czech and Portuguese.
Welcome to Villa Fumone - our home.
