About the property

Grand 5 bedroom villa, all with en-suites, just 15 min drive from the beach

This superb 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom boutique Villa with private pool, games- and cinema room features amazing views over the country side down to the coast.

A heavenly setting from which to enjoy the nearby beaches, restaurants, nature reserve, golf, villages and fabulous shopping of the central Algarve.

Plantation house is just a 5 minute drive from restaurants and supermarkets and just fifteen minutes from the glamour of the beaches of Quinta do Lago, Dounas Douradas and Vale do Lobo.

This stunning house has the most wonderful outside space with large areas of lawn with lots of shady enclaves, from which you can gaze out at the sea and country views. There is a pretty shaded terrace area, which is perfect for al fresco dining, as well as a shaded outdoor lounge area, which enjoys views of the garden, pool and sea.

The large modern kitchen has sea views and leads out to the garden and heated pool. It is equipped with everything you could need, including a Nespresso coffee machine, an American fridge freezer with drinks and ice dispenser and large television. The kitchen flows into the separate dining room, seating 10, also with sea views and French doors to the garden. It is a beautiful pace from which to enjoy an evening meal with friends.

The main sitting room is a large colonial style room, with French doors leading onto the covered patio and outside dining area. From here a staircase leads down to a cinema room and the games room which has table tennis.

The Master bedroom enjoys sweeping views down to the sea, as does the en-suite, which has a bath with a view, in addition to a large walk-in shower and its own terrace area. The second largest bedroom has a bath and makes a lovely second Master bedroom. The remaining three comfortable bedrooms all have large walk in showers and king size beds which convert into singles, if necessary, with French doors leading to the garden.

Plantation House is just a 20 minutes drive from Faro Airport and just 15 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches- perfect for families with shaded sun loungers for hire, water sports and beach bars.

Nearby the historic town of Loule with its colourful market is a wonderful place to buy gourmet delicacies, such as Algarve honey, piri piri spices, fresh fish and local produce. A perfect place to sit in one of its charming cafes and watch the world go by.

Lovely house with great views in agreat location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this light filled and spacious house.

Looking through the glass fronted living room down the valley to the sea

whilst having breakfast, then walking out onto the verandah and down to the pool, which was even heated, was a pretty good start to the day

Great beaches within a few minutes drive, secluded or with good restaurants for when we wanted to stay out

There were lots of great places to eat all around

Clean and well maintained and a friendly welcome

Perfect, will certainly recommend it and be back ourselves

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed towards the end of September and the weather was just perfect for us, wall to wall blue skies and sunshine and not too hot. The house and gardens are in a great spot far enough away from the crowds but close enough for easy access to fabulous beaches, walks beside the lagoon and a good selection of bars and restaurants. You do really need a car, but taxis are reasonable if necessary. There is a brilliant supermarket within a ten minute drive with a fantastic choice of everything, plus numerous more very closeby. Charming Loule is authentically Portuguese and has a good selection of shops and definitely worth a visit too.

If we couldn't bear to leave the very comfortable and well equipped house we could easily spread ourselves around the house, by the pool or relax in the spacious beautiful gardens.

We could definitely recommend this and have told all our friends, this lovely home from home offers so much for a perfect break.

A truly stunning stay in this wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most incredible half term week in this beautiful villa and had the best holiday ever. The weather was fantastic, and the kids spent the entire week in the pool, which was fabulously warm, and running around on the beaches. We were close to everything we needed and there was a fantastic supermarket where we could literally get anything we needed, including every English brand of food you could want. There was so much room for the kids to run about outside and the villa was beautiful and equipped with everything we could ever have wanted. We were close to wonderful beaches and restaurants, as well as a fantastic new shopping centre just down the road and the charming town of Loule, which was lovely to wonder around, with its pretty back streets and indoor and outdoor food markets to explore. We had a glorious week and will definitely be back. A car is essential to enjoy everything this beautiful area has to offer.
