About Phil Bligh

We are a family of 5 living & working in the North West of England. Like many have always dreamed of owning a property abroad, part investment, part retirement plan but mainly because we love it here.

Phil Bligh purchased this villa in 2013

Why Phil Bligh chose Figueira

As other owner's you may see, we too fell under the spell of this area and its authentic charm. We were looking to buy a property where we can eventually spend more and more time and for us this area and the Yellow Villa in particular has it all. Close enough to the village to easily enjoy it's amenities yet far enough to be quiet and private. Salema, with its lovely restaurants and beach is gorgeous without being over developed and is minutes away plus with all the other different beaches close by there is something for everyone here.

Nice house, quiet location, several pristine beaches accessible nearby.

Short walk to Figueira and short drive to surrounding towns.

Good restaurants for very reasonable prices.

Would go back again for a quiet vacation.

What a villa!!!!! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 2 week stay this morning. This villa is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious inside. When we arrived in the middle of the night we were all very 'wow' this villa is amazing. The pool is awesome and was a hit with us all. My boys were in the pool everyday! The location of the villa is fantastic. Salema is just down the road. We had a hire car and visited lots of places that were recommended in the arrival book. Burgau is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. (has a steep hill down to the beach!)

It was so easy to book this villa. We contacted Phil (the owner) who made the whole process so easy. We will definitely be back in the future.

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a great stay at the yellow villa, with our family including 2 members who had travelled from Australia. The villa is very well equipped, with comfortable furniture and beds with lovely views across the valley. It is also close to local amenities, including the beach, shops and some great restaurants. The large swimming pool was the icing on the cake. Would definitely return.

The Villa You Want

  • 5 of 5

We are a Dutch couple in our mid fifties with grown up kids whom we like to invite to stay a while with us on our holidays. We know the Vila do Bispo area pretty well and have been coming here for many years. We like the climate which is not too hot. And of course the fabulous beaches, Praia do Castelejo being our favorite.

Returned to this villa, because last year was a huge succes. Being here is indeed being away from it all. Splendid view from the veranda, and a rugged nature all around you.

The Yellow Villa is as you see it on the pictures, with lots of space, a high ceiling, nice clean bedrooms and bathrooms, a great kitchen and a broad veranda. In the morning the sea is greeting you, in the evening you look on the lights of Figueira.

The well kept pool is so large you can actually swim in it. We used the bar at lunch time and the wifi takes your spotify (in our case with bluetooth speakers) just anywhere you want.

Phil is a generous host and you can count on a swift communication. He made considerable improvements this year, an improved bathroom, a second bathroom and a pool shower. We will definitely come back!

A wonderful spot

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in the Yellow Villa has been a joy. The house is spacious, functional, clean, well equipped and with a warm atmosphere. The pool is great for swimming and we spend hours playing ball while listening to the music. Love to walk down the steps from the house to the pool while your eyes taking in the views ( can even see the sea). One of the greatest draws is the privacy of the setting without feeling "at the end of the world" (...even so the price to pay is a bit of a challenging drive to the house up a washed out dirt track). The small town of Figuera sits right opposite and has retained its original Portuguese charm. Salema provides more options especially for evening dinners. The local beach in Figuera is beautiful and semi-nudist. Who does not fancy this will find plenty of charming beaches within 10 -20 minutes drive. Gentle on the south coast, rough and wild on the west coast. Supermarket just 5 minutes down the road to stock up for the bbc. Thanks again Phil for the quick and uncomplicated manner you managed to "squeeze" us into you holiday booking calendar on extreme short notice. Thanks also to Ramona from the local management company who organized all smooth, flexible and reliable. A great stay. We will be back. Torsten
