LUXURY VILLA - LARGE GARDENS AND POOL IN PEACEFUL LOCATION

Azinheiro Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 spacious double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Sleeps a maximum of 8.

The villa, Monte das Figueiras - Hill of the Fig Groves - is situated on a level site in a hilly region of the Algarve near Azinheiro. In a rural setting, it enjoys panoramic views over the ocean and is surrounded by traditional almond, fig, carob and olive trees. This architect-designed villa was constructed to an extremely high specification and provides truly luxurious accommodation. The appearance of the villa accords with a traditional Algarvean design, and yet with every modern amenity assures the visitor of comfort, peace and tranquillity. Furnished to an extremely high standard, it has stylish decor which makes use of artifacts both old and new, including many fine and interesting pieces of local origin.

The veranda is a covered summer living space set between open pillars and arches houses a large brick barbecue and tiled outdoor dining table. Sunny for breakfasts and sundowners, and shaded for lunches and reclining, the veranda makes for luxurious outdoor living.

The property: The villa is set in over an acre of landscaped and irrigated gardens. Whilst the lower terraces have retained their traditional agricultural appearance, the land surrounding the villa is now lavishly planted with an abundant array of plants and mature trees and shrubs. The garden and pool are professionally maintained.

The property naturally lends itself to outdoor living with its large Moorish pillared veranda and ten meter swimming pool, and a games area. Pool heating may be requested in advance as an optional extra. A tiled dining table conveniently placed by the barbecue, ideal for taking meals al fresco, completes the recreation area. A roof top patio is available for private sunbathing. The unfenced pool and terracing render the villa unsuitable for children under 14.

Out of season, comfort is assured by full gas fired central heating and by double-glazing throughout the villa. A wood burning stove adds cosiness to the sitting area.

The Algarve: The Algarve has a relaxed and historic character quite distinct from other Mediterranean resorts. Many visitors are attracted by the superb golf courses of international standard. Others come for the sunshine and the miles of unspoilt sandy beaches. Monte das Figueiras is for the discerning visitor, those who enjoy quiet idyllic days in the complete privacy of their own country house, with easy access to all the area's holiday facilities.

The property is located near Azinheiro, a village approximately thirty minutes drive from Faro International Airport. Estoi is the closest town to the villa. Within five minutes drive, it offers a variety of small shops, a country market, Roman ruins and an 18th century palace. Faro Old Town and the delights of Olhao - a fishing town famous for its Moorish architecture - are within easy reach.

Accomodation: ENTRANCE HALL. A large welcoming area with cloakroom, and glass doors to a terrace, it is completed with typical and antique local artefacts. SITTING ROOM. A large attractive room with views of the pool and terraces. DINING ROOM. This room enjoys views over the countryside towards the ocean. It is furnished in the traditional Algarvean style. VERANDA. This covered summer living space houses a large brick barbecue and tiled outdoor dining table. The specially constructed games area, equipped for boules and other pastimes offers particularly attractive views to the coast. KITCHEN The kitchen overlooks the front gardens and comes fully equipped with a refrigerator / freezer, gas cooker, dish washer, microwave oven and all other usual kitchen utilities. BEDROOMS. There are four spacious double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms with WCs. Two of the bathrooms have baths with additional showers and the other two have showers. All bedrooms have access to private balconies or terraces.
