Casa Mihlo Rei is a traditionally designed Portuguese luxury four bedroom villa, close to the sea, with amazing views to the Monchique Mountains and set in a large landscaped garden with private swimming pool, tennis court, African Jacuzzi house plus shaded pergolas.
The main entrance is at the side of the property into a large open plan hallway leading into the main lounge areas. To the left of the Lounge is the sunken, seated conversation pit which is set around the enclosed log fire. This area is distinguished by the Arabic pillars and arches around it that depict the Moorish history of the Algarve. Beyond this the current Dining area has a central octagonal solid marble dining table set on a central oak bearer with matching dining chairs looking to the adjacent French windows with views of palms, the pool and the Monchique Mountains beyond. A further Lounge area has additional seating and wall mounted TV. This is adjacent to a self-contained Bar with stunning tiled mural.
The first of the bedroom accommodation will be found in the guest wing which contained one double bedroom and one twin bedroom each with their own built in wardrobes and vanity alcoves. These bedrooms share a large bathroom with bath, built in shower, wash hand basin unit, toilet and bidet. Also on the Ground Floor is a further twin bedroom with the use of a toilet and shower room.
The Kitchen and Laundry room has been recently refurbished in recent years. From the Kitchen is a large roofed barbeque with large double charcoal barbeque housed internally to the area. An eight seater fibre glass, glass topped table provides ample summer eating facility, curtained by tall Banana Palms with fantastic views of the garden, pool and mountains beyond. A perfect way to dine and watch the setting sun!
A winding staircase set within the Moorish tower takes us to the First Floor which houses a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and vanity alcove, the view from its windows across the palmed garden and pool to the valleys and mountains beyond. This bedroom has its own dedicated bathroom and toilet containing bath with shower, basin unit, toilet and bidet.
One of the highlights of this villa is the outside space. The rear garden features the 12m x 5m swimming pool with sun beds and plenty of areas for shade, both natural and built. Beyond the pool is the all-weather surface tennis court enclosed in its own netted area. The garden is highlighted by palmed islands giving feature and character to the garden all set around extensive kikuyu grassed lawns.
However, everyone’s favourite garden feature seems to be one of the latest additions which is a 7m x 5m African thatched Jacuzzi house which contains a large hot tub Jacuzzi and is surrounded by internal garden seated areas perfect for relaxation out of the hot summer sun. The Africa House is complete with ambience lighting and sound to play relaxing and mood music, as well as a large colonial fan in the vaulted roof. The Jacuzzi faces onto the poolside.
