About the property

Set in the exclusive “Quinta dos Barrancos” in Guia (Albufeira), this charming villa offers calm and space while being in close proximity of beaches and other activities. The unique villa was built under architecture, and its high ceilings offer timeless character - and natural coolness in summer. The lush and spacious exteriors offer full privacy and comprise a thatched patio, perfect for outdoor dining, which corresponds harmoniously with the terrace and garden. Directly adjacent is a large private swimming pool (infinity), which south-facing position guarantees full-day sunshine, ideal for sunbathing. Set on a slight elevation, the villa’s exteriors offer a breathtaking 180° view of the surroundings and the valley to the sea. The panoramic terrace is a unique feature and really sets the villa apart; it allows you to relax and enjoy a drink while watching the beautiful sunsets.

The villa has spacious sitting and dining rooms, and has 3 bedrooms with bathroom 'en suite', all tastefully decorated with a local touch. The modern kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, microwave, large American fridge). A separate study provides extra tranquility if desired.

The Quinta dos Barrancos is surrounded by vineyards, partly belonging to Sir Cliff Richard's adjacent villa, and at walking distance of the village of Guia (400m). This pleasant and traditional Portuguese village, is reputed for its restaurants and draws locals from all over the region. There are also bars, banks, a chemist, a post office, local market, bakery and mini market.

Just outside the village (2,7km) you will find the Zoo Marine wildlife and water park, ideal for children. Also close (3km) is the Algarve Shopping Centre, the largest of the Algarve, with many international brands, a cinema, bowling, food court and large supermarkets.

The Algarve's beaches, ranked among the best in the world, are close by. The famous Galè beach is at only 4km and its fine golden sand stretches for several kilometers. Several smaller and more secluded beaches, so typical of the Algarve (Praias do Lourenço, Castelo, Evaristo) are even closer (a 10 min. drive) and allow you to change settings every day. The beaches are clean, safe and well preserved, and most have a cozy bar or restaurant.

The villa is also perfectly situated for golf lovers. The Algarve has countless golf courses and some are among the best in Europe. The Golf dos Salgados is within 5km of the villa and is reputed for its soft dunes and nature reserve.

For shopping and nightlife the town of Albufeira is at close range, about 10 min. by car or taxi. A favorite holiday destination of many Europeans, it offers a very wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Lovely property with fabulous outside space

  • 5 of 5

Arrived very late (23.30) and villa was quite difficult to find in the dark but keys to villa were where stated and a lovely welcome basket of goodies where waiting. After much needed nights sleep we explored the villa which has absolutely everything you could possibly need and lovely new ensuite bathrooms. The main bedroom could do with decorating but the rest of the interior was fine. The outside space is fabulous with a brilliant pool and great views. Pool water temp was chilly but fine once you were in! I am sure it will warm up as season progresses. We had a lovely holiday but a car is essential. Guia is a nice little village with a good number of restaurants (mostly serving piri piri chicken) and walkable from the villa. Big shopping centre with great supermarket is just 10 minutes drive away and the coast and beaches just 15 minutes away. The lovely housekeeper checked on us a couple of times which was reassuring. We all agreed we would definitely stay again.

Lovely villa, excellent facilities

  • 4 of 5

The villa was fantastic; brilliant view, clean, well looked after, spacious and it had everything we needed for our stay. The cleaner Isobel was lovely and very helpful! The infinity pool was excellent - the only problem was the temperature, it isn’t heated and was absolutely freezing! It was a shame as we have a 9 month old baby and we only managed to get her in the pool once. A hire car is a must for the property, but it is a great location for getting to different places - we got to Albufeira, Carvoeiro, Aquashow and vilamoura very easily, all within 30 minutes drive. The only other thing to add would be the number of sunbeds; there were 4 and 6 of us. We would definitely recommend and would be happy to stay here again.

Fabulous outdoor space - garden, patio, pool and BBQ. Perfect for lazing the days away. Well looked after and where you'll no doubt spend most of your time if you come to stay.

Villa very spacious and well equipped with everything you'll need. Big supermarket just 10 minutes' drive away.

We had a wonderful relaxing week.

Perfektes Urlaubsdomizil

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt am Hang, mit wunderschönem Ausblick Richtung Südwesten auf die Landschaft. Der Swimming Pool, die Terrasse und der Garten sind einfach perfekt. Alles ist sehr gepflegt. 2 mal pro Woche wird gereinigt und Wäsche gewechselt, ein super Service. Im Haus ist von der Ausstattung her alles komplett vorhanden und lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Klima & Wetter waren Ende August / Anfang September ganz hervorragend geeignet für uns: nicht zu heiß, so um die 30 Grad Celsius, immer etwas Wind, und das Meer angenehm temperiert, aber nicht badewannenmäßig. Guia liegt sehr günstig: schöne Strände in unmittelbarer Nähe, aber man gelangt auch schnell zu anderen Städten und Stränden, die Algarve hat eine unglaublich abwechslungsreiche Küste und eine Vielzahl an sehenswürdigen Orten, die über die A22 sehr gut erschlossen sind und schnell erreicht werden können.
