There are 4 double bedrooms upstairs, with 2 bathrooms. Downstairs is the main en-suite double bedroom and a further double bedroom. The lounge and dining room are open plan with the dining table positioned either at the front or the back of the villa. Off the entrance hall downstairs is a toilet. Outside there is a shaded patio for dining and an open patio, both near the villa. Farther down the garden there is a large sun bathing patio alongside the heated pool. The villa is set on a hill and enjoys virtually uninterrupted views of 360. We have only 1 villa next to us, a little way down the hill. We can see the edge of Vale Do Lobo golf course and the coast in front of us, with Queteria over to the right of us in the distance. There are 2 excellent supermarkets within a 10 minute drive. Almancil is the nearest village 10-15 minutes drive away. You can walk to the beach approximately 15-20 minutes or drive only 5 minutes away. The villa is set in lovely walled secluded gardens with a south facing outdoor heated pool. There is a gate, which can be closed to keep the children safe. Just over the garden wall there are almond trees and inside the garden are fig trees. The villa will be cleaned before your arrival. Maid service can be provided, for an extra charge.

About K Baker
Our family have enjoyed many happy holidays at our villa. The children could play safely without the need to keep them quiet as we only have 1 villa next door to us. I like my privacy and at the same time like to be near restaurants to dine out. I don't like to travel very far from the airport, which makes it easy to get to the villa.
K Baker purchased this Villa in 2005
Why K Baker chose Ferrarias
We wanted somewhere that was private yet not too far off the beaten track. There are places to visit locally,such as Vale Do Lobo, where there is live entertainment on in the summer evenings, and a very modern shopping centre in Quinta da Logo. It is very easy to get to, from Faro airport and peace and quiet await you.
What makes this Villa unique
Sunbathing is something I enjoy with an occasional dip in the pool to cool off, then make a quick snack for lunch out on the patio. The kitchen is situated at the back coming out onto the patio. I enjoy getting up in the morning and going out onto the balcony looking at the view and the flowers.

Arthur - the owner - was friendly and attentive and so was Nathalie, his contact in Portugal. Whenever there was a problem they were relatively quick to react. The house is big and the swimming pool brilliant, the garden is great too, the kids loved it. Unfortunately, there were quite a lot of things that we didn’t expect to happen during our holiday. On arrival the place was filthy (hair on the floor and sinks including the kitchen one, cob webs literally everywhere with dead flies and bugs hanging off it, under the sink was disgusting). Nathalie came back to clean the bathrooms but we had to clean the rest of the house the next day; there was a problem with the electrics at one point so we were without lights or water for a few hours (not the owners fault but inconvenient); the room with the washing machine is dreadful, lots of clutter and dirty; no one came to clean the swimming pool for over a week (we had to call them as water was green), when the cleaner came for the mid-stay clean there was no intention to change bed linen or bathroom towels - we had to insist; the house has no air con, upstairs was incredibly hot; and the smell of drains throughout the house was pungent to say the least. It was also quite disappointing the fact we were renting a self catering house and very little utensils were available to enable cooking for 8 people. The villa has potential but the owner needs to invest and care for it if they want to rent it out to holidaymakers.
Very relaxing holiday
Great restaurants great views
Not ultra modern but homely
Great location very private fantastic view and super pool
Many good restaurants close by
Fantastisk belliggenhed og et meget godt og dejligt indrettet hus.
