Vivenda Vale do Olival is a quietly positioned beautiful luxurious fully A/C´ed pool villa on 4500m ²(1+ acre) private grounds in absolute rural surroundings 1km South-East of Porches (centrally located between Portimao and Albufeira), near the sea and fantastic (bay) beaches. Inside you will find, in addition to the spacious living room and modern kitchen, 4, in various styles decorated, comfortable double bed bedrooms. Upstairs is the master bedroom with A/C, box spring king size bed, private bathroom and two huge balconies located immediately adjacent where, in complete privacy, you can enjoy the sun all day long, sun beds provided. 4 bedrooms with large flat screen televisions and satellite TV (all free to air channels), one of the other bedrooms(20m²!) also with king size box spring, sofa, 42'' flat screen TV with satellite receiver, A/C, XXL-ventilator and HIFI-stereo.

In the modern, fully Bosch equipped A/C´ed kitchen including a large American with ice maker you will find a cozy breakfast corner. The big 25m² A/C´ed living room has a large 49'' flat screen TV with satellite receiver, DVD player, quality HiFi stereo system, leather sofa´s, 2 feateuils and a comfortable dining area, half rounding the living room runs a covered terrace. All airconditioning units from Daikin(best there is!) to cool, heat, dehumidify and use as ventilator, all windows and sliding doors with shutters(so every room can be darkened off) and mosquito screens.

The property is completely fenced in and has 2 times a private driveway, access through electric gates.

Directly in front the kitchen there are 2 covered terraces, one of which is the 20m ² 'Kunuku-house' (Caribbean style with palm-leaf roof) with top quality garden furniture, directly adjoined by another dining area and stylish barbecue area with huge charcoal grill, luxury gas barbecue and bread oven, here one cooks with fabulous rural views! On the other side of the Kunuku house a 8 x 16m grass field with outdoor shower, at the side of the house you have private access to acres and acres of evergreen country side with pine -, almond, fig -, olive and St. Johns bread trees. At the fantastic pool area you will find a 4 x 11m salt water pool in which(as far as we know) the highest private waterfall in the Algarve ends, you may run the water fall yourself at any time! Either to switch on full power and use it as a shower or less powerful and creating 'background music' when water very calmly runs down .... Adjoining a (hot / cold), outside shower in between tons heavy boulders (!!) and pool pump house. Shade sails and a centuries old olive tree provide a shady place on the 50-60m ² pool terrace where sun beds, relaxing island and a hammock ensure a lounge atmosphere. Next to pool terrace with a from villa separate entrance is a 4th spacious 25m² bedroom with sofa, wardrobe, flat screen TV( shower) bathroom and sauna in a separate room, you are amongst natural rocks and end 2017 painted walls.

A fully landscaped garden with typical Algarvian vegetation rounds the villa + pool area. At night presented even more beautiful in the light of dozens and dozens of light points, also pool and waterfall are lit, a small sea of light! We guarantee that you will feel completely comfortable with us, should you however still need something we will instantly try and organize this to your satisfaction.

The villa is really well located in quiet peaceful surroundings, however quick access to some fantastic local restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. Lots of space for guests, there were 4 of us, but would easily sleep 8. The kitchen was well equipped for a holiday. The BBQ was easy to use with good shade cover for the hot summers as was the dinning area which was huge. I would highly recommend this villa and location, car hire is essential though. Thank you for another wonderful holiday in the Algarve.

                                                                          dream villa


                                                                          What a wonderful four weeks we had at this luxurious villa.The web pictures do not justify how stunning this place is.The gardens,pool and general outside living spaces where wonderful and extremely secluded.

                                                                          Thanks to the wonderful Gloria,garderners and the pool man the villa was spotless and very well maintained.

                                                                          Inside space was very well layed out and the upper bedrooms offered great views of the countryside.

                                                                          The management team of Algarve vacations where very professional and extremely friendly.

                                                                          The area itself is quiet and secluded but amenities such as a midsize supermarket where only a three minute drive with a choice of three beaches only five minutes by car offering miles and miles of beautiful golden sand.

                                                                          Overall a stunning villa set in a great secluded spot,we would highly recommend this villa to everyone.

                                                                          Dominik K.

                                                                          Unser (leider nur) sehr kurzer Urlaub in Portugal, den wir über ‚algarvaction.com’ in der Villa Vivenda Vale do Olival gebucht haben, war einfach großartig! Die Organisation und Kommunikation im Vorfeld der Anreise, aber auch die Betreuung vor Ort, waren freundlich und sehr zuvorkommend, äußerst professionell und doch familiär. Meine Familie und ich haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und Dank der guten Betreuung konnten wir unseren Urlaub vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag rundherum genießen! Die Villa selber ist bestens gelegen. Sie steht in einem etwas abgelegenem ruhigen Tal absolut verkehrsberuhigt und außerhalb der Sichtweite zu jeglicher Nachbarschaft – und dennoch zentral in wenigen Minuten zum Supermarkt zum Tennisplatz zum Restaurant oder zum Strand. Der Garten ist weitläufig, gut gepflegt und verfügt sowohl über große Rasenflächen als auch über eine vielfältige Pflanzenwelt bestehen aus Oliven, Pinien, Kork- und Steineichen sowie Feigen- und Mandelbäume, Oleander, Bougainvillea und Hibiskus und zu guter letzt einem großartigen warmen und sauberen Swimmingpool. Das Haus ist geräumig und verfügt über jeglichen Luxus, der das Wohnen und Leben erleichtert. Es ist gut gepflegt, komfortable und modern ausgestattet und liebevoll eingerichtet. In der Tat stimmen die Bilder absolut mit der Realität überein und wir können bestätigen, dass die Leistung durchaus den Mietpreis rechtfertigt. Wir haben es sehr genossen mit unseren kleinen Kindern im Alter von 1 und 3 Jahren und deren Großeltern zwei entspannte, kurze, ruhige und familiäre Wochen in der komfortablen Abgeschiedenheit der Villa Vivenda Vale do Olival zu verbringen und möchten dies gerne alle jenen empfehlen, die sich nach einem ruhigen entspannten und stressfreien Familienurlaub auf dem Lande sehnen.

                                                                          Heidi K.

                                                                          Von der Buchung bis zur Abreise haben wir uns rundherum sehr wohl gefühlt.

                                                                          „Wir kommen wieder“ 

                                                                          Fantastic villa in Algarve

                                                                          Jose R.

                                                                          Fantastic villa , very comfortable. 3 bedrooms, one bedroom upstairs which can be completely independent of the others ( a key point for my son ), 2 bathrooms , fully equipped kitchen (american fridge with icemaker , my daughter remembers it perfectly ) . The kids loved the large pool with a waterfall and my wife loved the terraces to stay in the shade and enjoy the fantastic views over the countryside. I loved the tranquility of the villa and the fact of being just minutes away from the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve and near of very good restaurants ; Finally we liked it so much that this is the second time we back (there is so much to see and enjoy around the site). if we return it is also thanks to the owners (Jeroen and Martina ) who made a first class service during our stays, they were discreet while being present in case of need , thank you again!!. Finally the most important for us is to trust in people and much more if you need to send money , we made the right choice.

                                                                          Traumhafte Anlage

                                                                          Selina G.

                                                                          Ich habe mit meiner Familie und Freunden zu 8 eine Woche hier verbracht und was kann ich sagen? Die Villa und erst recht die Außenanlage sind ein absoluter Traum. Man merkt sofort, dass sehr viele Liebe und Zeit in die Einrichtung und Bepflanzung gesteckt wurden!

                                                                          Nicht nur die Anlage, sondern auch der Service waren Top! Man hat dort 24/7 eine Ansprechperson und auch vor der Reise wird einem jede Frage beantwortet und mit allem geholfen, danke dafür!

                                                                          Die Villa ist noch schöner als es auf den Bildern zu sehen ist und man fühlt sich sofort wohl. An Luxus fehlt es mit den verschiedenen Grills, der schönen Küche und den riesigen Pool mit Wasserfall auch nicht.

                                                                          Alles in allem würden wir immer wieder kommen und einen Aufenthalt hier absolut weiterempfehlen.
