Horta da Avozinha (translated into) "Granny`s Garden" - sits in a lovely garden and orchard where you can pluck a fresh lemon straight off the tree for your gin and tonic! Families can also have the opportunity to feed the chickens and geese at liberty - this is something that can excite young children. In terms of accommodation, this styllish Villa has two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a second family bathroom. The living area too is spacious and extremely comfortable with a log wood fireplace for those cold chilly evenings all provided with compliments from the owners! There is also a modern well-equipped kitchen. Against a background of pale-washed walls and light-tiled floors, the accomodation offers good quality wooden furniture throughout with spashes of colour from tasteful fabrics and furnishings. Wide French windows in the large living - come - dining area lead straight onto a covered veranda with steps leading down to the swimming pool. Heating of the pool can also be done on request (for bookings at least 1 week before arrival) from the owners at a small additional fee. It could not possibly be anymore convenient; especially if you needed to keep an eye on young children.There are sun-beds too with parasols to lounge on including a dining table and chairs to facilitate true outdoor "al fresco" or "barbeque meals" by the pool where you also have the facility of your very own built-in outdoor oven! Take your pick! This is a true holiday experience you will never forget!
Golden childhood memories led us(Teresa and Jose Sampaio to name our holiday home we have built in the country side near LUZ, "Horta da Avozinha", Granny´s Garden".The name is apt since Villa Avozinha offers all the joys of a real country childood.
Maria Teresa Sampaio purchased this villa in 1988
The Villa is pleasantly spacious inside and offers the luxury of two bathrooms for two bedrooms , one pool-side double,and one further double with an extra divan.The sitting/dinning room and separate kitchen - and even the bathrooms -are equally voluminous.The big covered varanda is ideal for enjoying a shady open-air by the pool.
Villa Avozinha is perfect for those who want to venture no further afield than to the seaside villages of burgau(2Km)and LUZ(3KM) and the lovely historic town of Lagos(7KM).
For those who whant to explore though, Villa Avozinha is right on the edge of the Algarve´s beaches of the Atlantic cost
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay in our own villa with private pool. We would highly recommend this spacious property to anyone who wants to have a relaxing holiday whilst having the opportunity to explore the local area by car. This is a beautiful property with a large pool set in a very well maintained garden.
We stayed in the villa for 8 days with our three young children. The home was clean and welcoming upon arrival, with a few necessities available in the fridge and a full basket of wood for the fireplace. The pool, deck, and hot tub were immaculate. The yard was maintained and the swing set was hung with a baby swing as soon as the owner saw the ages of our babies. Everything we asked for was available on demand, from details like detergent for the washing machine, toys for the beach, and recommendations for things to see and do in the area. We won't stay anywhere else in Portugal and plan to return with visiting family this summer!
Had a fabulous time, the most relaxing holiday we've ever had. Everything was just perfect from first getting there with the welcome pack that was really thoughtful and useful. Bread, milk, tea, coffee, margarine, red and white wine.
Jose and Teresa were very friendly and polite and made you feel valued. We picked fresh oranges and lemons from the orchard and made juice.
We found the villa very clean and tidy, the maids came twice a week Thurs and Sunday. There was also a gardener/pool man who came on Saturday, personally I'd prefer him to come on Sunday (swap over day) as after of couple of hours listening to his power tools it slowly grinds you down. Nothing major but worth a mention.
The villa itself is just behind the small village of Espiche, bit far to walk because of the heat but we'll worth a visit at night with its range of restaurants.
Bit of a tip if your on the later flight is to Google earth the route straight to the villa. Roads leading to it are dark and narrow.
Should you want the ultimate in peace and quiet you could not do any better than stay here. We have been travelling to the Algarve for 25 years and this was like stepping back in time to the real Portugal we have known and loved. The owners greeted us on arrival with a friendly 'Hi hope your journey was OK. Please check that everything is to your satisfaction' we were even supplied with an additionlal private mobile number above our tour operator contact details should we have any problems which was very reassuring. The villa was in itself comfortable and homely with plenty of equipment to make preparing and serving meals easy, but the outstanding thing for us was the peace an quite. Having had a busy time at home all we wanted was to completely relax without having lots of people or activities going on around us. The villa was in easy reach by car of supermarkets and restaurants in abundance if that was our choice. The orange and grapefruit trees provided delicous fruit which we were at liberty to use, you have never tasted fruit like it! The pool was probably the cleanest that I have ever swam in. A young family would have a great time with the playground, chickens with their chicks and frog and toad watching in the little pond security gates add to your peace of mind.
We are booking again as soon as work allows!!!
Thank you Teresa and Jose
we were looking for a week of quiet, simple relaxation and we found it right here. The villa is spacious and well equipped - we paid extra to heat the pool as it was early may and i would recommend the same to others as the pool is lovely - when heated, the 'top layer' was between 30 and 35 degrees - it was like swimming in the bath. Chickens and a peacock in the garden made it feel very rural and picking oranges off the trees for breakfast was amazing.
A short drive took us into the resort of La Luz where there was plenty of choice of eating places and in the local village of Espiche was a delightful restaurant. All in all, a great place to stay - we will find an excuse to return.
We enjoyed the privacy of the place, and the warm welcome of the owners. Garden and pool are stunning. Perfect place for our three children 14, 11 and 5, because the pool is directly in front of the villa. There is always a spot without wind and in the sun. Inside house is spacious, good shower, beds ok but a bit of a squeaky bed in masterbedroom. It's nice and cool inside, it has internet and Sat-TV for a rainy day, not that we had any! Poolwater was 29 C when we arrived, we had a welcome basket with bread, butter, jam and wine to start our holiday. Shops and beach nearby, under 10 minutes by car.
Tips: New toaster, a good frying pan, and a better juicer to sqeeze the lovely fresh oranges you can pick straight from the trees. The directions to get to the house should mention that it is only 2 minutes from Espiche so you can find the way back if you miss the turn of on the highway. The coordinates given were not recognized by sat-nav? Owners are very helpfull and respect your privacy completely.
The city of Lagos is one of the most beatiful locations in the Algarve.Aera of ancestral experiences,where, side by side, modernity and tradition, the contemporary and the legacy the spast coexist.To walk through the dream beaches, and to cruise the streets of Lagos is entering in a true adventure of discovery of identity and culture, of its built heritage, of the flavors and aromas of its gastronomy.These are memories, testimonies, traditions and unique experiencies for those looking to enjoy the free time or the holidays.
Make your discovery!!!
