Holiday Rental House
Set in the exclusive “Quinta dos Barrancos”, this charming villa offers calm and space while being in close proximity of beaches and other activities. The unique villa was built under architecture, and its high ceilings offer timeless character - and natural coolness in summer. The lush and spacious exteriors offer full privacy and comprise a thatched patio, perfect for outdoor dining, which corresponds harmoniously with the terrace and garden. Directly adjacent is a large private infinity swimming pool, which south-facing position guarantees full-day sunshine, ideal for sunbathing. Set on a slight elevation, the villa's exteriors offer a breathtaking 180° view of the surroundings and the valley to the sea. The panoramic terrace is a unique feature and really sets the villa apart; it all...Set in the exclusive “Quinta dos Barrancos”, this charming villa offers calm and space while being in close proximity of beaches and other activities. The unique villa was built under architecture, and its high ceilings offer timeless character - and natural coolness in summer. The lush and spacious exteriors offer full privacy and comprise a thatched patio, perfect for outdoor dining, which corresponds harmoniously with the terrace and garden. Directly adjacent is a large private infinity swimming pool, which south-facing position guarantees full-day sunshine, ideal for sunbathing. Set on a slight elevation, the villa's exteriors offer a breathtaking 180° view of the surroundings and the valley to the sea. The panoramic terrace is a unique feature and really sets the villa apart; it allows you to relax and enjoy a drink while watching the beautiful sunsets. The villa has spacious sitting and dining rooms, and has 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, all tastefully decorated with a local touch. The modern kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, microwave, large American fridge). A separate study allows for remote working. The Quinta dos Barrancos is surrounded by vineyards, partly belonging to Sir Cliff Richard's adjacent villa, and at walking distance of the village of Guia (10 min). This pleasant and traditional Portuguese village is reputed for its restaurants and draws locals from all over the region. There are also bars, banks, a chemist, a post office, local market, bakery and mini market. Just outside the village (2,7km) you will find the Zoo Marine wildlife and water park, ideal for children. Also close (3km) is the Algarve Shopping Centre, the largest of the Algarve, with many international brands, a cinema, bowling, food court and large supermarkets. The Algarve's beaches, ranked among the best in the world, are close by. The famous Galè beach is at only 4km and its fine golden sand stretches for several kilometers. Several smaller and more secluded beaches, so typical of the Algarve (Praias do Lourenço, Castelo, Evaristo) are even closer (a 10 min. drive) and allow you to change settings every day. The beaches are clean, safe and well preserved, and most have a cozy bar or restaurant. The villa is also perfectly situated for golf lovers. The Algarve has countless golf courses and some are among the best in Europe. The Golf dos Salgados is within 5km of the villa and is reputed for its soft dunes and nature reserve. For shopping and nightlife the town of Albufeira is at close range, about 15 min. by car or taxi. A favorite holiday destination of many Europeans, it offers a very wide range of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Albufeira's Old Town has maintained a notable charm, and strolling the pedestrian streets and beachfront walks is a pleasant experience.More
