Minimum Stay (days)
Apt Size
6 Bedrooms / 6 Baths / Sleeps up to 12 

Spacious and welcoming 6BR/6 BA villa for 12 guests: a sublime result of the inspired adaptation of three old village houses and overlooked by a giant palm tree, said to be enchanted, that towers over it. With its dazzlingly white walls, offset by many-hued bougainvillea, and terracotta tiled roofs, the house retains the traditional dignity of the local style.

Tree-filled gardens preserve the peace and privacy, and there are many lovely outdoor areas for al fresco meals and quiet relaxation. The pool area is particularly attractive with its own bar and a log fire, making this a great place for parties or poolside drinks. In the main house, the fantastically well-equipped kitchen and generously sized breakfast and dining areas will undoubtedly make for some memorable meals. With so much space at everyone?s disposal, yet with a warm and friendly atmosphere, this is a marvellous villa for large family parties or groups of friends.

This inviting house is set amidst the glorious scenery of green hills cultivated with olives and vines and spread with flower-filled fields, and the excellent shopping of Almancil, and Loule with its vibrant market, are no more than ten minutes drive away, while the sport, leisure and entertainment activities of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are equally accessible. Victor, the House Manager, lives unobtrusively by the house and is a fountain of knowledge about the surrounding areas.
