About the property

Exclusive styled villa formed as a romantic, yet modern, "fortress" w ocean view

Exclusive styled villa formed as a romantic, yet modern, small fortress with ocean view and a designed, terraced garden of 1000 m2 with various fruit trees providing plenty of exotic fruits, and several hideaways seating areas and small pool.

The villa is located in a luxurious residential area on a hillside with several international restaurants, tennis and mini-market within short walking distance.

There is a 15-minute drive to the airport, major shopping centers, famous beaches, aqua lands, golf courses and Faro city.


Arriving to the property the first thing you see is the spacious and elegant outside driveway with nicely designed stone patterns.

You enter through the double gates into the private courtyard. The courtyard is approx. 30 meters long from the gates until the end of it where there is the stone lion "Aslan" guarding the buildings around.

Der er en viss følelse af en smule romantisk, men moderne, portugisisk fort når man går ind på denne ejendommen.


One is entering the house through a glass wall hallway into the kitchen / living room where a sofa and armchairs are placed near the TV and fireplace, and at the other end of the room the open-plan kitchen and dining table is placed. It's a nice ocean view from the kitchen window and while seated at the dining table.

In front of the kitchen / lounge there is a conservatory of 30 m2 with some 10 meters of glass sliding walls, reaching from floor to roof.

At one end of the conservatory there is a long sofa with several sofa tables and footstools, and at the other end of the room there's a sofa-bed or 140 cm width under the AirCon.

The conservatory also has a pleasant view of the garden, ocean and hills in the distance.

Going from the lounge / kitchen in another direction one comes to an elegant and all-Portuguese tiled bathroom (hand painted tiles) with big mirrors and showers.

Next to the bathroom the bedroom is located with a high, 160 cm width, bed under the AirCon. It's a romantic bedroom with genuine antique carpets on the tiled floor.


Outside, in the old cisterna tower, nowadays a big round table is placed seating almost 20 people. You enter the cistern through the 3 arches. The walls inside the cisterna are decorated with pine trees and a hug cork tree made of cork, by a local artist.

On top of the cisterna is a private roof terrace with comfortable sun chairs perfect for having a night drink and enjoy the great coastline view.

På kveldene kan du se glitter ned på de nederste landene og følge planene i land og take off.

If you lay back in the comfortable chairs you will also have a marvelous view of the stars in the night sky.


The garden is well designed and makes use of the 1000 m2 with terraces and paths leading to different hideaway seating areas and among the trees where you can pluck as many fruits as you would like to eat. There are some 20+ fruit trees and berries, such as:




pear melon

Passion fruit












For eksempel har du et sæde i druehuset og plukk / spis champagne druer og sort druer direkte fra pergolaen som en ørken.

There are also plenty of flower plantings in the garden, all different in style and color matching - from long walls covered with intensely pink bougainvillea, two stone miniature landscapes with lavish lavender and rosemary fields framing silver succulent plants.

Around the small pool (4.5 meters diameter / 130 cm depth) there is a light sand "beach" and palm trees. Next to the pool is a big sun deck with sun beds and garden dining table.

Just outside the conservatory there's a big lawn with lounge chairs, from where you have a good overlook of the ocean and hills in the distance.

Wide stone stairs lead you down to the lower terrace of the garden where the fruit trees and pool area is.

Du vil også ha skjult sittegrupper i en romantisk, all-flower-covered pergola ved siden av Cisterna, hvor du komfortabelt kan lese en bok i badebaden armstoler og overse havet, eller på steinbenken under den gamle Alfarroba tree bak The overgrown flower field.


Det er alt privat, ingen kan se deg her, men du har en flott utsikt over havet og du er midt i alt / i det sentrale Algarve.

It is walking distance to The Solar where 3 international restaurants are located. Du har også gåafstand til lokale tjenester som tennisbaner, mini-market, småmedicinsk klinik, flotte naturvandringer eller hyggelige vandringer i / omkring det luksuriøse boligområde QdR.

At Villa V you will enjoy an elevated life with style!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay with total peace and quite,

The villa facilities catered for our every need.

The "Welcome" folder has all the information, hint and tips you require for a fantastic stay.

From the top of the fort / tower you get an amazing 360 degree view for as far as the eye can see.

We have no hesitation (and already have) in recommending to friends and family.

Our only complaint is a week is not long enough
