About the property

Three bedroom, two bathroom with large garden with fruit trees and roof terrace.

Modern spacious kitchen with open plan dining and living area. Living room has a wood burning stove.Separate utility room with washing machine. One bedroom has a double bed the other two bedrooms have two single beds in each.All have fitted wardrobes.Living room opens up to patio area with a sunny aspect for morning dining. There's a roofed barbecue area which is ideal for dining in the middle of the day or evening time. Garden has been recently landscaped but it contains many mature fruit trees such as lemon, orange plum,pomegranate, avocado and anonas trees. It also has grape vines and guests are very welcome to sample the fruit in season during their stay.

Nearest beach is five minutes drive away -Praia da Senhora da Rocha-and Armacao de Pera is just a few minutes extra.This resort is the start of a five km long beach to Gale.A car would be desirable to access all the local beaches and beauty spots but a regular bus service passes the door and taxis are also available at very reasonable rates. Walk the beautiful cliffs- take your pick of a leisurely stroll or a longer hike from Benagil to Carvoeiro. Have lunch on one of the sea view cafes and then get a taxi or bus back. Hiring bikes is another option as there are many tracks for cycling behind the house there's a different route for every day and very often the only traffic you will meet is the shepherd herding his large flock of sheep and goats. A boat trip to view the caves and grottoes is another popular option.

Why The Owner chose Porches

This property is ideally located for the holiday maker who likes to enjoy the wonderful beaches of the Algarve and it's a year -round destination with its 300 days of sunshine. In Spring and Winter the sunshine is still warm and the landscape is amazing with its almond blossom in January & February and it's wonderful array of wildflowers in Spring.

It is a golfers' paradise also with multiple choices of courses dotted around the area. The nearest course is near the beautiful historic town of Silves and that course is only ten minutes drive from the property.

Tout ce qu'il faut pour un séjour réussi

  • 5 of 5

Propriété avec tout le nécessaire pour passer un séjour agréable (propreté, espace, et jardin arboré sont au rdv). Proche de commerce et des plages qui sont superbes. Propriété fermée ce qui est un plus lorsque l'on a des enfants.

Really a nice place for holidays

  • 5 of 5

The villa corresponds to the description, and has proved to be very pleasant. Completed for a family of 6 people, very well equipped. All the stores are nearby, as well as very numerous magnificent beaches.

An air conditioning in rooms would be a real asset, but we learn quickly to use the houses of the South of Europe.

And especially, there is a real follow-up on behalf of Noreen, who made all which was possible so that our holidays take place there very well.

Espaço muito agradável e perto das praias

  • 4 of 5

Gostámos da estadia na vivenda. Casa espaçosa, confortável e rodeada de bonitas plantas e árvores. Apesar da estrada em frente , o ruído é suportável (quartos nas traseiras). A melhorar o calor no interior da casa (também explicado pelos dias muitos quentes), em particular no primeiro dia, a pressão da água nalgumas torneiras (eventual areia nos filtros) e a necessitar de uma boa aspiração do chão. Apesar disso, voltaríamos, com certeza. Pronta resposta e simpatia dos interlocutores.
