About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms + 1wc, kitchen, surrounded by patios and garden

This lovely secluded villa is a short 5 MINUTE WALK FROM THE BEACH, across the village's pleasant lawns - and there's actually an elevator in the cliff, if you don't feel like using the stairs! You will be able to choose one of the small sheltered beaches at the bottom of the cliff, with their caves and rock pools at low tide, or the big open beach of Lagos bay - 8km long, with the Ria de Alvor in the middle.

THE HOUSE, ENTIRELY RENOVATED IN 2007, is spacious and comfortable: a vast living-room, full of light, opening onto a big secluded patio, with trees, bougainvilleas and flowerbeds, and always partially shaded (ideal for a quiet meal, or for the children); 4 bedrooms (with good beds and generous wardrobes), 3 full bathrooms and 1 WC, all in traditional Portuguese Azulejos. One of the bedrooms is an independent room, with direct access from the patio and a full en-suite bathroom; it has a large (adult size) bunk bed, 2,00m x 0,9m. The villa has a large fully equipped kitchen. The decoration is in a modern, colorful yet simple style. There is also a traditional roof terrace ('Açoteia') from where you can peacefully enjoy the view and the sun, or dine al fresco. The patios are furnished with outdoor tables, chairs and sun-chairs.

All the houses and other facilities are in a mainly car free setting, surrounded by mature GARDENS, ideal for a peaceful family holiday. The VILLAGE FACILITIES include: Tennis, bicycle rental, thalassotherapy and indoor pool, children playground, mini golf, & also the essential services: supermarket, several restaurants, internet access at reception, baby-sitting, car rental, taxis.

IN THE AREA there are a number of attractions: on the beach you can rent small sailing boats, windsurfers and kayaks, or try kite-surfing: Ria de Alvor is well known for its kite-surfing school - or water skiing. For those who like golf, there are over a dozen golf courses within 30mn drive including Penina and Palmares. Lagos’ beautiful historical town, the traditional fisherman's village of Alvor & its harbour, and Portimão's bustling city center are only minutes away.

Other interesting things to do/places to go:

SAGRES FORTRESS: crowning the cape of Sagres and its steep cliffs, the visitors enjoy a magnificent view of the ocean and the coastline, including Cape S.Vicente (Europe's southwestern corner). Constantly hit by the wind, the Fortress was built there for its location. In the 1st half of the 14th cent. Sagres was at the heart of the Portuguese maritime expansion, receiving students and navigators of many nationalities, gathered around the Prince Infante D. Henrique. The area was later raided by Sir Francis Drake.

SERRA DE MONCHIQUE (902m high- the highest point in the Algarve) has a sub-tropical humid climate, with rich vegetation and some rare species. It also has some hot baths, in Caldas de Monchique, surrounded by a park where you'll find Europe's largest magnolia tree.

ALGARVE'S WEST COAST (north of S.Vicente) has some magnificent wild beaches (Carrapateira, Arrifana) away from the crowds and frequented mainly by surfists, with magnificent landscapes - well worth an excursion!

GOLFING IN THE ALGARVE: a mere two to three hours flight from most European capitals, the Algarve has been a magnet to many discerning golfers for almost three decades. Portugal’s southernmost province is justly famous for its spectacular scenery along a fabulous coastline. The main golf season is from late autumn to late spring. Winters are mild and golfers from northern European countries can enjoy warm, sunny days and keep their swings smooth at a time when their home courses are unplayable. Nearest golf courses: PALMARES an interesting course, is best known for its breathtaking scenery. The setting is idyllic, with the majority of the holes on gentle slopes above the extensive beach stretching from the new Lagos marina to the mouth of the Alvor River. Course architect Frank Pennink took full advantage of the magnificent site and, in passing, threw in a sequence of five pure links holes between the railway and the beach, evoking memories of famous British layouts. The upper holes wind through groves of almond and fig trees and the course is renowned for its annual Almond Blossom tournament week in February.

PENINA: the Championship course is the late Sir Henry Cottons masterpiece and the course by which he wished to be remembered. He was the first to foresee the high potential for golf in the Algarve. Unlike the vast majority of Algarve courses, Penina is a flat, parkland type course, having been built on former rice paddies and scrubland. Most of the drainage ditches in the paddies were retained and partially modified into tricky water hazards, but the dramatic change of terrain was helped by the planting of 250,000 trees which now line most of the fairways. A few refinements have been made to Cottons original championship layout and the course has benefited considerably from the improved drainage installed. Subtle landscaping features have also been introduced to enhance the visual aspect of the course, and some of the water hazards have been extended.

Excellent location and a lovely villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Isabel's lovely villa for a week, with our grown-up children - 6 of us in total. The location is excellent; just a short walk to the beaches and a few excellent restaurants. We didn't use the swimming pools as the sea temperature was so perfect, but they are very close too. The villa is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. The terrace is lovely and secluded with lots of plants and flowers, and the most beautiful bougainvillea gives colour and shade.

It was a pleasure to deal with Isabel, who was most helpful, as was Paula who met us at the villa and made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing family holiday.

Lovely family house in a great coastal complex

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay in this house over the Easter period with two young children. It is possible to walk around the complex to reach lovely beaches, access the pool with an amazing view and acess a playground. There are lunch restaurants at teh pool or on the beach which are convenient for quick simple lunches.

Isabel was really kind and accomodating and provided two travel cots as well as two children high-chairs. The house is clean and well maintained. There is one big master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, two other double rooms (all with twins beds) and the fourth bedroom is located outside the house with its own shower room.

Everything is convenient and pleasant for children as the main living is spacious and everything is on the same floor

The only downside is there is no wifi connexion but you can access it through the reception hotel or restaurants nearby.

It is an enjoyable experience which we can recommend for families with young children.

Magnifiques vacances en Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances en Algarve dans cette maison tout confort ,spacieuse, au calme et toute proche de la plage .Les extérieurs sont très bien entretenus.

La maison était conforme au descriptif de l annonce, tout y était pour passer un agréable séjour. Maison entièrement clôturée donc parfait pour les enfants. Très belle piscine au dessus des falaises.

La propriétaire Isabelle a toujours été très disponible (que ce soit avant notre séjour pour répondre à toutes nos questions ,comme pendant )

Cette maison est très bien située près d'une superbe plage :Tres Irmaos.

Nous avons mangé tous les midis sur la plage dans l'excellent restaurant troglodyte le Caniço (snack mais aussi une très belle carte: poissons, crustacés et une divine sangria rosé !!!)

Toutes les commodités très proches de Prainha pour faire ses courses.

Les vendeurs au bord des routes vendent des fruits et des légumes qui ont du gout!!!

Le temps a été splendide pendant 15 jours.

Les environs sont également à découvrir: la côte ouest et ses belles plages ;le village de pécheurs de Ferragudo;le marché d'Alvor ;et pour les enfants le grand et très agréable parc aquatique Slide and Splash .

Enchantés par notre séjour, nous reviendrons.
