Originally a farm, 322 metres above sea level with extensive views across the countryside to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. There are some inexpensive, traditional restaurants dotted in the surrounding hills and Boliqueime, with a wider variety, is a short drive. The original farmhouse has been restored making up half of the accommodation in this substantial property and a newer building has been added to compliment the original with furniture and building materials which are in keeping with the style of the farmhouse.
The villa is a rabbit warren with some interconnecting rooms and countless original features both in the grounds and internally. There are some dry-stone walls, a fabulous wood burning stove (logs can be purchased at the local supermarket), lovely pieces of furniture - both functional and ornamental, low ceilings in the old part of the house and attractive china. The small kitchen has been brought up to date with modern appliances but is deliberately still very much a farmhouse kitchen and is in no way high tech! The garden is lovely; at the front of a house there are double entry gates and a drive with a path leading to a bridge over a frog pond with a tucked away seating area. The swimming pool is at the back of the property and takes advantage of the amazing views. It is surrounded by terraces with a lawn to one side. There are several outside dining areas, including a shaded terrace by the barbeque. There is a ramp from the terrace to the pool and one of the ground floor bathrooms has hand rails, so this villa may be suitable for wheelchair users.

Portugal is a country with something for everyone. From historic cities such as Porto and Coimbra to the rich cultural centre that is Lisbon, the whole country is crammed full of museums, monuments and stunning architecture. With the highest amount of sunshine in Europe it is easy to see why the Algarve remains such a popular holiday destination.
Beyond the shores and beaches lie the islands of Madeira and the Azores. Both are verdant jewels in the Atlantic ocean with dramatic cliffs and landscapes.
