About the property

A beautifully renovated 3 bedroom countryside villa with a large private pool

A splendid landscaped exterior with many large terraces, patios and cobbled pathways lead from the main house to the water feature and down to the 10 x 5 metre swimming pool next to the annexed one bedroom cottage. Beside the cottage there is a lawned garden and an outdoor shower. The pool has an optional jet stream current for swimming exercise.

The main house has a spacious interior and many traditional features, high ceilings allow for coolness and terraces lead from French windows onto the covered patio. The lounge is comfortably furnished and the open plan kitchen has all modern appliances. Leading off the lounge there is a small mezzanine bedroom with a double bed and an en suite bathroom. Further through is the master en suite bedroom with air conditioning and French windows opening onto a patio.

The annex cottage is also air conditioned and has a large double bedroom/lounge and bathroom, with sliding glass doors opening onto the covered terrace with seating and to the poolside.

Six quality teak sun loungers deck the terrace around the pool and there are sun umbrellas, various tables and chairs available.

The swimming pool is 10 m x 5 m with a Roman end with steps leading into a shallow end of 1 m and a deep end of 2 m. Freshwater pool with a salt cleaning system. The pool is serviced twice weekly during summer and once weekly during the rest of the year by a competent and reliable professional. Pool and garden lighting is available. There is a jet stream facility you can use for exercising by swimming against the current.

This property is not ideal for children under the age of 8 years unless they are not yet walking.

There is a cot and high chair provided for young babies. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.

We provide a once weekly linen and towel change and we provide beach towels.

The property is not at all overlooked and the nearest property is 500 metres away. The property is accessed by tarmac small roads and a cobbled drive up to the house. The property is quite remote with small neighbouring houses and farms in the vicinity. The nearest shop is in Alportel 1.5km away and for more selection, Sao Bras 3 kilometres away. Beaches around Vilamoura and Tavira are equidistant from the Quinta da Cortiça, being about 40 minutes drive away. There are excellent golf courses within 35 to 45 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are around Vilamoura and Cabanas. This is a strictly non-smoking property. Due to the possibility of guests being allergic to animal hair, we would rather not allow pets. Flexible changeover days, though we aim to keep bookings as close as possible. Departure is by 10am and arrival is from 2pm unless otherwise arranged.
