Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms and 4 bathrooms for occupation by 8 to 9 persons

The villa is located in a dead-end street of urbanisation Varandas do Lago, so it has the facilities of a development but all the benefits of an independent villa. It is just a stroll to restaurants (on Julias- and Ancão beach and the restaurants on Vale do Garrão and Dunas Douradas urbanisations), tennis courts (on Vale do Garrão, 400 meters) and extra communal swimming pools (on Vale do Garrão).

Upper floor. Large - parents – sleeping room with king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and a private balcony facing the swimming pool area. Further secluded terrace accessed from the landing.

Ground floor. Two twin bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom and doors leading to the terrace overlooking the pool area. The second bedroom has a separate bathroom with shower. Kitchen with a door leading to the barbecue area. Spacious living with fireplace and dining room with French windows to a covered raised terrace with access to the swimming pool which has steps and a floodlit surrounding terrace. Partially secluded gardens with shrubs and trees and a small lawn.

Area description : Villa Alegria is situated in the heart of the so called Golden Triangle of the Algarve.

We advice you to check its location on Google Earth: click on the coordinates 37 ° 02'53 .01 'N, 08 ° 02'21 .53' west longitude. Next Villa Alegria, you will find three more villas: one with (just like Villa Alegria) 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 2 villas with 4 bedrooms and bathrooms.

The villa have been built in the heart of the Golden Triangle and is in a straight line only 375 meters maximum from each other!

Sightseeing around Almancil: The church of Sao Lourenço de Matos is situated on a hill. It owes its name to Laurentius (3rd century), who's life was ended on a funeral pile because he gave the money meant for the construction of the church to the poor. In the 17th century the chapel was covered with tiles (azulejos). Together with the Marbel alter and the wood carving you should visit this church.

On 18 km. from the urbanisations you will find the centre of the capital city of the Algarve: Faro, with its beautiful historical centre next to the small vessel harbour, has several shopping centres. There are lots of cafes and restaurants as well.

The shops are modern and they can be compared with the shops you are used to in UK and Ireland. Most of them are opened from 09.00 until 13.00 hour and after the 'siesta' from 15.00 until 19.00 hour (in the summer until 20.00 hour). Between the city centre and Faro airport Forum Algarve mall is opened between 09.00 and 22.00.

Fun for Kids: In a country where the weather most of the year is warm and sunny, your children can play with water. Fortunately all the villas have a private swimming pool!

Older children can go to the communal pool of Riapark Garden hotel and the pool next to the tennis court on urbanization Vale do Garrão. Just a stroll of 200 meters!

Zoo marine

A water park with several dolphin, seal and sea-lion shows. One can also watch turtles, sharks, crocodiles, tropical fish and exotic and aquatic birds in the Oceans area that presents the life cycle of water and fauna from river source to ocean depth.

In the Algarve there are three water parks:

The Big One, on the N125 at SILVES

Slide & Splash, on the N125 at LAGOA

Aqua show, on N396 between LOULÉ and QUARTEIRA.

About Mr. Oebele Veenstra and Mrs Sietske Abma

We are Sietske Abma & Oebele Veenstra from the Netherlands and since February 2012 moved from Heemskerk (near Amsterdam) to the province of Friesland in the village of De Wilgen. Back to the roots.

Many years ago we made a 3-weeks-Portugal-tour with a final 'week of sun in the Algarve'. The environment of the village of Almancil are very pleased! Two years later went back and decided to buy a house to get yourself to stay and to rent.

At least twice in every year we go to our villa with pleasure. We are delighted with the (year-round) mild climate, friendly atmosphere, delicious food and luxurious surroundings.

Mr. Oebele Veenstra and Mrs Sietske Abma purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mr. Oebele Veenstra and Mrs Sietske Abma chose Almancil area

As the urbanisation was set up in a luxury atmosphere, we thought we would make a good decision to buy a plot not far from the beach. With a constructor we trusted very much (by then we knew him for 8 years as has done jobs for our second villa in the Algarve) and an architect we were able to built a first class villa with private pool.

What makes this villa unique

The guests visited our villa Vivenda in the past informed us that they were very pleased about the quality, the facilities of the villa. What more can we say?

Beautiful week in a very nice villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Villa Vivenda. Everything is perfect. The rooms are very spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped. The beautiful pool and large barbecue allowed us to spend beautiful days and evenings on the terrace. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood where the villas are all very beautiful. The beach is within walking distance (allow 15 minutes walk). Very pleasant it offers wide space of tranquility.

The announcement is true to reality. We recommend this villa. WIFI is good and the air conditioning is present in the living room and all bedrooms (essential during this month of August 2016!). We were pleasantly surprised to discover that all the windows were fitted with mosquito nets. Great week!

Owner's Response: What more can we, owners of this villa, say? When the owner informs about the villa and its environment it may be seen as a commercial activity. After all it is more important what our guests (this time from France) experienced... Thank you very much for writing a review!

The Algarve, the most popular province of Portugal, is famous for its beautiful beaches, its mild climate, its lovely nature and off course its attractive Golf courses. Most of the roads in the Algarve connect the one village centre to the other. If you are a little bit in a hurry, please use the A22 motorway.

Almancil (where our 2 villas are located) is a small city with at about 6.000 inhabitants. It is only 15 kilometres west of Faro airport (15 minutes by car). The city has several shops and services, e.g. supermarkets, magazine shops, baker shops, butchers, res­tau­rants and bars. Apart from a medical centre, there are doctors and dentists as well.

The urbanisations of Vale do Garrão and Varandas do Lago, where our villas are built on, are situated in the Golden Triangle of the Algarve, just in between the well-known resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago in Almancil, Algarve. This area is famous for its sandy beaches and its many golf courses. Both the parks are laying next to each other (only 500 meters in between). All the Villas are only approximately 1 kilometre away from the coast.

The holiday/residential development of Varandas do Lago is set in the heart of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, neighbouring Club do Ancão and Vale do Garrão. Surrounded by beautiful pine forests, the development is within easy reach of the famous golf courses of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, close to miles and miles of golden beaches, and stunning sunsets. Small development comprising of 190 detached villas and several townhouses. Future central facilities comprising of tennis courts, Bar/Restaurant and central pool area.

The localisation of both the urbanisations is ideal: it is just a stroll to the beach. At the beach, there are several popular restaurants. On the urbanisations, there are several general facilities like swimming pools (in Vale do Garrão; in Varandas do Lago this will be built at a later stage) and three tennis courts. Most of the buildings in the urbanisation are townhouses and private villas with between two and five sleeping rooms. Most of the houses have a private swimming pool. Our two villas have a private pool indeed!
