NEW AND CONTEMPORARY VILLA WITH HEATED POOL, WIFI & HOME CINEMA

Vila Nova de Cacela Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bed Villa - Spacious & Luxurious - fantastic location, sea views

Brand new - contemporary villa with solar heated pool, large terraces and sea views.

Luxurious private villa- 4 en-suite bedrooms, spacious living area inside and out.

Our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive of Villa Alfarroba there are 7 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. The towns of Tavira and Cabanas are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a sundowner outside one of the many street cafés. Faro is about 40 minutes from Villa Alfarroba and is an easy journey with the majority via motorway where often you can drive from one exit to the next and not see any other cars! Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks, take a trip up the Guadiana, pop across to Spain, do some bird watching or just laze by the pool - there is something for everyone!

More villa details: The ground floor living area is open plan, tiled throughout with cream porcelain which give the house a lovely light and airy feel.

The kitchen is a bright citrus lime with a black granite worktop/breakfast bar. Aswell as top quality major appliances, the kitchen is fully equipped with all you could need from toasted sandwich maker to lettuce spinner and all in between!– we have a large commercial fridge as we understand the importance of keeping everything cold in the hot Summer days. We also have two dishwashers so that you will never end up with work top full of dirty dishes waiting for one dishwasher to be emptied before it can be refilled. There is a 90 cm induction hob which is a delight to cook with. There are two ovens and two warming drawers. The dining table seats 12 people when fully extended. There are three comfy sofas situated around a panoramic window with lovely views to the sea. There is a 46 inch LED television which was an indulgence but lovely!

Outside space: There is a gorgeous solar heated swimming pool with plenty of terrace and eight luxury sun beds and an external toilet and shower. There is a covered dining area with an additional sink and a large purpose built BBQ. Additionally there are several small tables and chairs surrounding the villa to sit and have a drink and enjoy the views. The garden is well planted but as the garden was recently landscaped, the plants are not yet mature..

We have a draft beer and wine machine with a flash chiller so you can have an ice cold drink whenever you want to. This is only available if pre booked, so we can buy in barrels - approx cost is 85 Euros for 30L and 65 Euros for 15L white wine.

Beaches, Restaurants and Shopping: If you can drag yourself away for our lovely villa and the beer fridge, there are so many beautiful beaches around the area. They are immaculately clean and very spacious. They do get busy in July and August but if you are prepared to take a few extra steps from the end of the walkway onto the beach, you will find plenty of space.

For a change, you can drive into Tavira and get the little ferry over to the Isla de Tavira where there is a stunning beach and lots of restaurants and bars.

There are so many nice restaurants and of course we have our favourites - in the Villa we will provide comprehensive details of our recommendations.

On the third Sunday of every month there is a market in the local village of Vila Nova de Cacela where you can pick up locally made crafts, boxes of fresh strawberries and just about anything else you can think of.

There is a shopping mall at Tavira but local shops sell fresh meat, fresh veg and home baked bread.

There is a municipal market in Tavira which is well worth a visit - freshly caught fish and lots of lovely fruit and vegetables at very good prices - ideal if you fancy a BBQ. Best to go before noon to get the best selection.

Genuine people who will do all we can to make your holiday special which we are delighted to read is reflected in our reviews.

This is pool heating with a difference....We have installed a ground source heat pump to pump the swimming pool water through the pipes layed under the pool terrace.. The result is that even today, as I write this on November 7th 2013 the swimming pool is at 29 degs! It is supplementary to the solar panel heating and since we connected it last month, we have been amazed by its efficiency.

Wow!

We have just spent a wonderful week at Jo and Paul's villa in the eastern Algarve. The villa is certainly a very special place to stay and Jo and Paul are both wonderfully friendly and welcoming hosts. We visited as a family of 5 with three young boys aged 9,5 and 3 - this was their first trip abroad!

We arrived at the villa late afternoon (Jo had sent us clear directions from Faro airport so this short drive was fine) and we had asked Jo to cook us a meal. We had such a delicious lasagne and lemon cheesecake that we asked her to cook it for us again mid week! She is a fabulous cook and knowing that this meal was waiting for us was great. Jo also got us some bread, milk, eggs, ham, cheese, juice, crisps and water for our arrival which meant we didn't have to think about shopping until the following day.

We visited Manta Rota and the beach several times, Vila Real San Antonio ( the most eastern town and here you can catch the boat across to Spain), the Isle of Tavira and the children's favourite Zoomarine where the dolphin show was brilliant. There is so much more we could of done but sadly ran out of time. There were plenty of places to pick up some groceries without going to far and we ate out at a couple of local restaurants - the burgers at Mars bar were amazing!!!

The weather was beautiful, very warm and the area was lovely and peaceful which is what we wanted. Jo and Paul have created a truly relaxing and beautiful villa which is very luxurious. The swimming pool was such a treat and we went in at least twice a day, the extra heating was well worth the money in April. One of our boys gained so much confidence in the water in just a few days. The cinema room was also used daily when the boys needed some time out of the sunshine....and when we wanted some time to relax with a book on a sun bed! Such a wide range of DVDs to pick from.

Our highlight of each day has to be the wine and beer on tap and a glorious balcony to be able to admire the view whilst having a drink. We watched the sun set every night!

An absolutely fabulous holiday and we all cannot wait to go back! Jo and Paul were there if we needed them (even when we couldn't get our hire car to start!) and they are extremely welcoming people. You can't go wrong here! We hope everyone who visits loves it as much as we did.....we will be back!!!

Thank you again Jo and Paul xx
Owner's Response: Lynsey, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We are delighted you had such a good holiday and will look forward to your return - perhaps next time you could leave those lovely boys behind when you go!!! Jo & Paul X

The moment you arrive on the drive of the villa, the wow factor of the property hits you. The attention to detail that has gone into the design of the villa is truly astounding. Suitable for anybody, from a young couple, a family with children to celebrities, this place has it all.

I literally could not think of a single thing that the villa was missing. Myself and my partner travelled with our two children, both under the age of 18 months and didn't need to worry about bringing anything for either child, the villa had everything that we would need for them from a bottle sterilizer, highchair, cots to a walker! A truly superb and thoughtful offering for any young family.

The swimming pool and barbecue had a lot of use and the opportunity to use a large cinema room with an endless list of dvds to choose from or the table tennis table in the basement provides another element of fun to your holiday. The wifi in the villa allowed me to watch the odd football match and kept the kids entertained when necessary. It was also great for helping to explore the local area when reviewing potential restaurants to eat in.

The local shops are not too far away and have everything you can wish for. The same can be said for restaurants, pubs and takeaways.

If you are a keen golfer, the incredible Monte Rei course is just around the corner and is worth seeing even if you don't play the course.

I truly cannot recommend this villa enough and will definitely return in the future.
The owners Jo & Paul are very pleasant and always willing to offer advice or help with anything that you may need.

You'd be mad to choose another villa in the Algarve over this one!
Owner's Response: Thank you Simon for taking the time to write such a rave review - you are welcome back any time!!

I first met Jo and Paul about six years ago, whilst working on the foundations of their "Grand Designs" state of the art property build in Kent. My manger stayed in touch with them following their move to Portugal four years ago, and took them up on their offer to visit their newly built villa (he has stayed numerous times since). I just wish I had done the same a few years ago, because having stayed there in October this year, I most certainly would have done it sooner! My wife and I spent a wonderful week with a couple of friends and we can't wait to go again. It's so much better than staying in a hotel and having your own privacy with everything you could need makes it a home from home. The building is striking from the outside and extremely spacious and contemporary on the inside . The terrace leading down steps to the pool is huge and there is a fantastic outdoor built in BBQ with a range of cupboards, granite worktop with its own beer/wine taps. I would recommend a 10 day stay minimum as we found a week too short to explore and do all the things we wanted to do, also a hire car would be beneficial as the location is just slightly off the beaten track. The villa's owners Jo and Paul are genuinely nice, honest and friendly people and with their help every step of the way, you can't fail to have a superb holiday!
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review - I think you should come for at least two weeks next time, maybe three!!! We look forward to welcoming you back any time...J & P

Astonishing Villa in the Algarve

Staying at Jo and Paul's supurb villa is always a pleasure. We have stayed there 3 times now and it just keeps getting better and better.
Little additions appear each time we arrive, finding them is like a little game!
The Villa is always so clean and fresh looking, quite amazing. I find myself cleaning the Kitchen sub-consciously!!
The Cinema room in the basement, a nice cool get-away when it's just too hot. So many DVD's to choose from too!
So many lovely touches it's hard to list them all.
Our flight time was a little late, so we asked Jo if she would mind cooking for us, as we would be tired. Jo laid on this mini banquet it was so good we're still talking about it now, what an amazing cook!!
Our stay being in December, we didn't expect much in terms of weather, but it was lovely, "T"shirts and shorts as normal. Coming back to the villa throwing our clothes off and jumping into the heated pool was just lovely, watching the beautiful sunset whilst sipping Gin and Tonic was breath taking!!
Our favourite places to eat are Mar's Bar in Manta Rota, Avi and Johnny made us feel so welcome, we felt like family. Ribs are my favourite with their secret salad dressing, yummy.
Evenings, we liked Aproa just down the road from Mar's Bar, just lovely. Then there's O'Ligeiro, just a liitle way up the N125 opp the tyre shop, the best Piri Piri Chicken in the world!
Thank you so much for a brilliant holiday, we can't wait to come again.
John and Janet Anderson.
Owner's Response: Dear John and Janet, as always, it was a delight to welcome you back to the villa. It is so nice for Paul and me to get such a glowing report and we look forward to seeing you next April! Let me know what you would like me to cook next time ;-) x

Villa Alfarroba, so named because of the lovely, very old Alfarroba (carob) tree in our front garden, is in the little hamlet of Sta Rita, just 3km from the beautiful blue flag beach at Manta Rota. Our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive of Villa Alfarroba there are 7 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. The towns of Tavira and Cabanas are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a sundowner outside one of the many street cafés. Faro is about 40 minutes from Villa Alfarroba and is an easy journey with the majority via motorway where often you can drive from one exit to the next and not see any other cars! Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks ,take a trip up the Guadiana, pop across to Spain, do some bird watching or just laze by the pool - there is something for everyone!

Other Activities: Twitching

Golf: If you want to escape the crowds, the Eastern Algarve is perfect for golf. It is less developed and much less crowded. This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from - all within 15 minutes of Villa Alfarroba. These courses are in areas of natural beauty and are free from the development of fairway-lining villas. We are a few minutes from the prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. Although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! It is already ranked in the Top 20 in Europe & Top 100 in the world by Golf Digest USA - the only Portuguese course to achieve this ranking.

Ski: Sierra Nevada, Spain is about 400km away!!!

Notes:
Completed in 2011, it is brand new and was let for the first time in 2011. Before moving to Portugal, we built a bungalow in Kent that was televised and featured on Grand Designs in 2008 (See Hi-tech Bungalow, Maidstone). We have endeavoured to incorporate many similar technologies in Villa Alfarroba. All door thresholds are flush to floor to make access to outside terraces easy for pushchairs and wheelchairs alike as well as wheeling in suitcases! The solar heated swimming pool has a swim jet and a built in cocktail table. There is free wifi, a cinema & games room in the basement with a table tennis table, casino table, board games, DVDs, books and a CD player. It is a bit of a den and is great when it is hot or the kids want to hang out on their own. or should I say when the parents want the kids to hang out on their own!! It is a luxurious villa with everything you could want to make your holiday a perfect experience.
