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..."

Magnifique maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine fin octobre. La maison est idéale pour deux familles avec enfants, chaque chambre disposant de sa salle de bains. L'océan n'est qu'a 10minutes avec de superbes décors. La baignade est encore possible en octobre (piscine et océan). L'autoroute traversant l'Algarve est toute proche mais on ne l'entend pas. Joachim le propriétaire est aux petits soins et nous a prodigué de nombreux conseils. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison !

Charmante maison, propriétaire très accueillant

  • 5 of 5

Maison idéalement placée pour visiter le centre-ouest de l'Algarve. Autoroute à 2 minutes, magnifiques plages à 5-10 min de voiture. Très bon contact avec le propriétaire (francophone), soucieux que tout se passe bien. La maison est spacieuse et bien équipée. Chaque chambre a sa salle de bain. Super endroit pour 2 familles (nous étions 10 personnes).

Grote villa met prachtige tuin, zwembad en terrassen.

  • 5 of 5

Alles was voorzien zoals in de beschrijving. De woning was goed onderhouden. Gelukkig hadden de ruime slaapkamers airco. De eigenaar hielp ons indien we vragen hadden. De woning is een aanrader voor een grote familie. Wij waren met 12: grootouders, kinderen en schoonkinderen en 5 kleinkinderen van 2 tot 7 jaar. Voor hen was het ook een leuke vakantie. Je kan een boottocht maken om de grotten te bezoeken langs de kust. De zee mag alleen niet te wild zijn. Er zijn een paar goede restaurants in Alvor die de eigenaar ons aangeraden had. Alvor is tijdens de dag een mooi vissersdorpje om te bezoeken, 's avonds is er natuurlijk heel veel volk om een restaurantje of bar op te zoeken. Een aanrader is een bezoek aan het uiterste zuid-westen van de Algarve namelijk Ponte de Sagres en Cabo de Sao Vicente.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 10, including 3 children under 5, and this property was perfect for our 2 week holiday.

The villa is very conveniently located; 45 minutes drive from the airport, less than 5 minutes to the closest supermarket and 10 minutes to the local towns and beautiful beaches of Alvor and Portimao. We did hire cars but spent most of our time relaxing in the ample grounds of the villa! The outside space was ideal, lots of room for al fresco cooking and eating, lovely warm pools (including a smaller, shallow one for the little 'uns), plenty of sun loungers as well as little nooks and secluded areas if you wanted a bit of quiet time in the shade. The children loved the daily activities of feeding the chickens and collecting eggs and picking lemons.

The rooms are large and comfortable with air conditioning and en suites. The kitchen is well equipped, including sharp knives which is unusual in holiday homes!

Joaquim was a very attentive host if needed, he came round the same day to help a couple of times and kindly provided a potty and small toilet seat for our toilet-training toddler.

In short, we would all highly recommend this property and would love to return!
