About Barbara & Peter JOHN

We are a Swiss family and spent 7 years of our life in Portugal. Our three children are born in this beautiful country - the youngest one in Alvor/Portimão. We currently live in Prague, Czech Republic but have kept the wonderful years we were able to spend in Portugal in our hearts.

Barbara & Peter JOHN purchased this villa in 1998

Why Barbara & Peter JOHN chose Alcalar

The property was virtually the plot next to the house we had originally rented for the time we were working in the Algarve - but the house was abandoned and the weeds growing 2 meters high. The home had no pool and was badly taken care of.

We thought it would be a great opportunity for us to return "home" as well as for our children to keep some link with their home country.

The property has a nice size plot of land, is facing West (the small street passing behind the home - quiet) and built on one floor. With the addition of the good size (10 x 5 meters) deck level overflow pool, the home has become a great place to spend a few days of relaxation for the whole family.

If you wish to have privacy and peace - stay in the home. Whatever else you need can be found within 10 to 20 minutes drive by car - shopping, restaurants, entertainment, beaches, golf etc.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Fumone is built on one floor and oriented West - for great evening sun

Villa Fumone is located in "Serra e Mar" - a development started in the 1960's and today very green, secluded and with high trees / vegetation - yet close to Portimão, the beaches and over 10 golf courses.

An Excellent Holiday in a Beautiful, Well Equipped Villa

  • 5 of 5

This lovely traditional villa with a beautiful pool and gardens which is not overlooked is on an established development of high quality villas just a few minutes drive from Alvor.

Booking was easy and Peter John answered all our questions promptly. We stayed for a week in June, a total of seven members of the family, ranging from 82 years old to 4 years old. We were met by Suzel, who only lives a short distance away. She showed us around the villa and was available if required to answer questions and help out if needed throughout our stay.

Inside, the villa was well decorated and very clean. It was well furnished, everything worked. The kitchen/diner was well equipped with appliances and crockery etc. The main bedroom was large and airy with plenty of wardrobe space and a large bathroom/shower room ensuite.

The living room was spacious and provided different seating areas. The covered outside area which included a large dining table was excellent for shade whilst having a good view of the garden and swimming pool.

The villa and its gardens are surrounding by fencing and there is an electric gate on entry to the drive.

Whilst it is an easy drive to Alvor, Portimao and Lagos there are a couple of good restaurants within a very short distance, Fonte de Pedra and Solar de Farelo.

A lovely holiday in a lovely villa for an excellent price. We would certainly stay there again.

toller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine traumhafte Woche in der Villa Fumone verbracht. Das Haus ist toll ausgestattet, die Haushälterin sehr freundlich und kompetent. Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen kleine Wohnsiedlung. Wir machten viele Ausflüge ins nahe liegende Monchique Gebirge und am Meer ( Portimoe ).

Auf unseren nächsten Besuch freuen wir uns schon.
