Algarve; near Albufeira; beachfront; 2 miles to town
sleeps up to: 10
This stunning villa is in an almost unrivalled position on the cliffs above a beautiful beach (part of the larger Praia d'Oura Beach) where there is a snack bar (private access from the gardens via steps, which are steep and not recommended for young children or the elderly). Two villas share electric gates from where a flower lined drive leads to the individual entrances. There is a gate in the garden for guests wishing to book both properties, otherwise they remain private and independent from each other, although as the pools are close it may be possible to hear your neighbours. It is difficult to believe that these villas are a short walk from Santa Eulália with its variety of restaurants and bars - whilst some of these are visible from parts of the garden, other sections enjoy complete privacy. Also close by is the popular Areias de São João making this a good choice for groups which include teenagers although many clients barely leave this idyllic spot and choose instead to stock up at the local supermarket.
The views from the garden of the villa are truly amazing. There is a central courtyard and the landscaped garden has lawns, flower beds and three rock pools - one is a spa with water jets - cascading into the fabulous swimming pool below.
The pool is banked by colourful rockeries, has a gentle shallow end and when viewed from the garden, seems to fall away into the sea beyond (the garden may not be suitable for young children).
The accommodation is in three sections; the main house and two smaller, less imposing apartments reached from the entrance courtyard.
NB Only the appropriate accommodation will be available depending on the size of the group and the courtyard suite is only available if the main house is booked.
Main House: Sitting room. Study. Dining room. Kitchen. 1 bedroom with king size bed & bathroom en-suite. Cloakroom. Spiral stairs to 1 twin. 1 shower room.
Courtyard Apartment (entrance through courtyard & up steps): 2 twins. 1 bathroom. Courtyard Suite: 1 double with bathroom en-suite.
