Villa Pocilgo stands on the site of the original pigsties, next to the main house, Casa Velha, where owners reside at weekends. It features a very bright living room with open fireplace and two windows, two full size seating/sleeping divans, one small double bed-settee and a fitted kitchenette/diner, leading to a bathroom and to a large double bedroom. Outside there is a terrace featuring a pergola partly covered in grape producing vines, a built-in barbeque at one end and a dining table, large parasol and chairs at the other end. Ideal for romantic alfresco dining. It looks across a small Mediterranean garden to a lawn area, a lake (biological swimming-pool) and open land covered in almond and fig trees, with the ocean as a backdrop. The view from all rooms and terrace is panoramic and quite beautiful.
The property is a small farm located on a protected piece of land, between the Boavista Golf Resort, and the ocean. There are three houses on the grounds: Casa Velha, the original farmhouse (max. 10 occupants), offering a very large terrace with BBQ, 4 bedrooms, large downstairs split-level living room with fireplace, dining and TV areas and another large sitting room with TV upstairs. Owners reside here some weekends and long holidays. Villa Pocilgo, a charming and cozy 1 bedroom cottage (max. 4 occupants) with open fireplace, next to Casa Velha, with its own terrace and BBQ and sharing the same amazing views across the biological swimming-pool and the gardens, through fig and almond trees and wild fennel, to the sea, . And Villa Celeiro, a very spacious 2 bedroom split-level villa (max. 6 occupants), with mezzanine, its own garden with lawn, rockery and pine and almond trees.
One can walk along the cliff path, after crossing the land, either left to Praia de Porto de Mós, or right towards Praia da Luz. The very large biological pool, shard by the 3 houses, looks like a natural lake and is a favourite with most children! It is also a great attraction for migrating birds and small wild ducks which must be chased off the water...
