Situated at only 5 minutes from both the beach and a small city and set on a rural environment with full privacy, Vargem das Colmeias has treated our family very well over the years. Memories of long hot Summers and Winter's cold enough just to have a good excuse to light up the fireplace and enjoy a bottle of fine red wine will live on with us forever.
Built in 1998 and drawn by an architect in the family, Vargem das Colmeias is surrounded by 16 acres of land and forest with a high peak with a magnificent 360º view ranging all the way to the sea and 'round to Santiago's Castle.
The Villa itself is beautiful as you can see for yourself in the photos and is equipped with most modern amenities. The Villa consists of a Main Bedroom, located on the top floor of the house which is equipped with a spacious dressing room, a luxurious bathroom and a veranda overlooking the pool and garden area. There are 6 other double bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and if you have the need to accommodate more family or guests, you have access to a cozy little guest house where 4 to 8 more people can comfortably stay.
There are two large and comfortable living rooms, one is directed at comfort and socializing and the second one for entertainment (TV, Pool Table, Stereo System). There is also a dining room.
The front of the house leads to a beautiful garden with a 20 meter long pool which has a lovely wooden shack serving as support, providing shade, a refrigerator and a table for 20.
Our own personal staff of 3 is included. They will tend to your rooms, to the garden and pool area. Antonio and Dana have been with us for a good ten years now, they are amazing people and absolutely trustworthy.
Vargem das Colmeias is located approximately a 1h30m drive from both Lisbon and Faro airports, right in the Costa Alentejana, a privileged part of the Portuguese coast, where you can find peace and quiet or entertainment, depending on your mood. Same to be said for the beaches, you can find yourself a deserted beach or one with restaurants and consequently more people.
I could write all day along about our beautiful house and how amazing the Costa Alentejana is in every sense but now that you got a taste from the pictures, come find for yourself or give me a call so we can talk some more, I'll tell you everything you'd like to know. See you soon.
The Family spent a good two years looking for the perfect spot to build our holiday home. We wanted somewhere that wasn't too far from the capital, somewhere close to the beach with good waves (my brother s and I are all surfers) and somewhere where we could still have fun and things to do but that wasn't overly crowded like the Algarve. We like to think we did find the perfect spot and so we bought it and build our dream house.
Thirteen of us from age 7 to 70! Fantastic house, very well equipped and with plenty of space for everyone!
The younger ones loved the pool and the games room; the "less young ones" enjoy the confortable living room and balcony and the "being away from it all".
Dana and her husband were fantastic and very helpfull always ensuring that we had a confortable stay.
We loved our holiday at Vargem das Colmeias. We will always treasure the memories we made!
Thank you for letting us have your house.
I was lucky enough to have spent several holidays at this beautiful country/beach house. Everything from the food to the tranquil environment and to the dazzling sunsets will blow your minds. I highly recommend it. I miss it
Éramos 7 pessoas e fomos passar um fim-de-semana na última semana de junho. Foi um fim-de-semana fantástico, adorámos a casa e sentimo-nos todos muito à vontade, visto que a casa tem ótimas condições: a cozinha, os quartos, a sala de jogos, a sala de estar, a piscina, e um jardim lindo... Foi de tal maneira agradável que acabámos por nem sair da casa nem visitar qualquer praia ou arredores da zona. Também os caseiros (a Dana e o António) foram sempre muito simpáticos e prestáveis. É ótimo para quem precisa de um descanso silencioso, sem qualquer barulho da cidade. Aconselhamos bastante e com certeza que voltaremos.
Éramos 14 e alugámos a casa em Julho.
A casa é fantástica, a piscina e o jardim lindos.
As cores do final da tarde fizeram-me lembrar Africa.
Quisemos aproveitar a casa o mais possivél, e por isso acabámos por ir á praia só duas vezes, uma fica a 10mn a outra a 15mn.
O local é sossegado, ficando só a 5mn de Santiago do Cacém, e a 10mn de Sines.
A casa está muito bem equipada e muito confortavél.
Tive a sorte de me calhar a suite principal, que é um luxo.
Os mais novos ficaram independentes na "Guest house" que tinha 2 quartos e uma sala só para eles.
No dia da entrada fomos recebidos pela Dana, que foi durante toda a semana muito prestavél.
A Vargem das Colmeias excedeu largamente as nossas expectativas.
Já reservamos para o próximo ano.
Had the chance to spend New Years Eve and several Summers at this place and it's unbelievable, the view is amazing and that swimming pool has a lot of quality for a morning swim and either to have lunch or sunset dinner (and what an amazing sunset this is). The place is so chill and quiet you can hear the nature all around you and enjoy Portugal at it's best! Recommended!
