Overview

About the property

Placed between the sea and the countryside, in “Val das Hortas”, this 1 hectare property was redesigned for tourism in 1995 and restored in 2008 adding a new swimming-pool. Nowadays, it offers you comfort (satellite TV, Internet WiFi, air conditioning, swimming-pool), privacy (fencing and all type of vegetation), and tradition (chicken coop where you can collect fresh eggs everyday and recycle organic rests). Among the orange trees, the villa holds a 2000 square meter garden with lawns, rock garden, palm trees, bougainvilleas, pine trees and cedar, the ideal place to relax. You can also use one of the bicycles for sightseeing or light shopping.

The Monchique Thermal complex and SPA, 20 Km towards north, allows you to profit from massage and a lot more (http://www.monchiquetermas.com/hotel-overview.html).

It is worth a visit to home local restaurants (and picturesque taverns) to enjoy the pleasures of the algarvian cuisine.

  • 5 of 5

"Really tranquil and comfortable villa, with beautiful surroundings. Great to just chill by the pool and enjoy the gardens, but well-placed as well to get into Alvor or further afield. Fresh fruit from the gardens, and fresh eggs from the hens everyday! Owners are helpful and friendly. A lovely spot..."

vacances merveilleuses

  • 5 of 5

nous venons de rentrer de 15 jours au Portugal dans la maison de Monsieur Jaime Costa

notre séjour a été au delà de nos espérances

Le propriétaire est super sympa, très à l'écoute de ses locataires, lorsque nous faisons appel à lui il répond présent plus que rapidement

la maison est vraiment très belle et surtout très très bien équipée, encore plus jolie que sur les photos, chaque chambre possède sa salle de bains, nous qui louons souvent avec des amis trouvons rarement ce genre de prestations

nous avons pu profiter des oranges, des citrons pour confectionner de très bons Mojitos

par contre les poules que nous avons pourtant bien nourries n'ont pas été très généreuses en œufs

lors de votre séjour surtout faites appel à Victor (le proprietaire pourra vous donner ses coordonnées) pour vos balades et vos transferts

en voiture il faut environ 10 minutes pour se rendre à la plage

par contre pour vos achats rendez vous au magasin Portugais d'Alvor qui est à 5 minutes de la maison en voiture, vous y trouverez tous les produits pour régaler vos papilles.

Pour résumer FAITES VOUS PLAISIR ET LOUEZ LA MAISON DE MR JAIME COSTA

Groots, ruim, luxe!

  • 4 of 5

We hebben heel erg genoten in dit ronduit geweldige huis! Op de fotos is het al netjes maar in de realiteit is het huis vele malen beter. We waren met 6 volwassenen en 3 kleine kids.

Binnen:

Het huis is ruim opgezet met 3 slaapkamers beneden en 3 kamers boven. Allemaal met n ensuite badkamer en airco. Voldoende kast en opslagruimte. De keuken is ook lekker groot en van alle gemakken voorzien. Oven, magnetron, koffiezetapparaat. Veel pannen, bakken, snijbladen en messen. Dat is bij sommige huurhuizen wel eens anders...

Ruime koelkast met viezer.

Tevens binnen een eet- en woonkamer waar een tv met dvd speler staat.

Buiten:

Er is een ruime oprijlaan met afgesloten toegangshek. Voldoende parkeerplaatsen waarvan deels overdekt. Een ruime tuin met veel verschillende plekken waar je even rustig alleen kan zitten. Veel groen en goed onderhouden. Bij de parkeerplaatsen en oprijlaan staan een aantal vijgen-, citroen- en sinaasappelbomen waar je van kan plukken. Eieren rapen bij de kippen kan ook.

Het zwembad is heerlijk! En direkt ernaast ligt een verwarmde jacuzzi!

Ruim voldoende goede ligstoelen en kussens.

De buitenkeuken is ronduit geweldig!

Normaliter heb je een BBQ met een wastafel ernaast en daar moet je het dan mee doen. Hier heb je dat ook maar ook een grote overdekte keuken erbij. Voldoende meters werkblad en een 4 pits gasfornuis en oven. In hetzelfde overdekte deel heb je voldoende plek om in de schaduw te eten. Dat heb je tijdens het ontbijten zeker wel nodig! Vanuit het overdekte stuk is er goed zicht op het grote plein waar de kinderen voldoende ruimte hebben om te spelen.

Het huis bezit ook nog over gratis wifi en een mooi dakterras met een aantal tafeltjes en stoeltjes.

Omgeving:

Als je links afslaat vanuit de oprijlaan ben je binnen 10 minuten op het brede zandstrand van Alvor. Ga je rechtsaf ben je binnen n kwartiertje in Portimao met 3 verschillende supermarkten. De intermarche (slecht), de continente (redelijk) en in centro commercial Aqua Portimao heb je een Jumbo. En dat is een topsupermarkt in een top winkelcentrum. Dus doe jezelf een plezier en rijdt die 2 minuutjes verder.

Al jaren boeken we via diverse instanties dit soort vakantiehuizen. Soms iets minder soms iets beter. Maar dit huis was een toppertje.

Absolute aanrader dus!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with a lovely swimming pool with a hottub. A nice place to stay with your family or friends. We stayed there with 6 adults en 5 children in the age 1 to 12 years. Everyone enjoyed this place! Every morning they fed the chicken. Also picked oranges of the trees for a nice fresh orange juice. Do you need more :-). All 6 bedrooms were uniquely decorated and all had their own bathroom, very pleasant. The owner is a friendly man, whom you can call if something’s wrong. In all, a lovely villa in a beautiful surrounding with a good price/quality ratio. We absolutely recommend this villa!
