Beautiful,spacious villa in rolling hills and set in 4 acres looking south west down a valley studded with carob and olive trees, carpeted with wild flowers in spring. This wonderfully peaceful location is only 7 kms from some of the finest beaches in the Algarve, close to the lovely towns of Castro Marim (5 kms) and Vila Real (8 kms). Spain is 10 minutes by car and Seville 90 minutes. The property is very well equipped and furnished. All the beds are comfortable, 3 of the bedrooms having quality mattresses shipped from the UK. It has a beautiful, large swimming pool which is solar heated. The main BBQ adjoins a large shaded decking area near the swimming pool. There is a further alternative BBQ on a lower terrace. There are further terraces around the property, accessible from the ...Beautiful,spacious villa in rolling hills and set in 4 acres looking south west down a valley studded with carob and olive trees, carpeted with wild flowers in spring.

There are further terraces around the property, accessible from the 4 bedrooms. There are 2 flat screen TVs, one in the sitting room, the other in the games room, which has a 3 piece suite, table tennis and table football, and a separate kitchenette with fridge/freezer. The sitting room also has 2 large sofas and dining table for 8 people The main kitchen has fridge, dishwasher, microwave, oven and washing machine and is generously equipped. There is good wi-fi access, and Rocu provides all standard UK channels, Sky channels and other sports and foreign channels in the sitting room. There are DVD players with both TVs. It is an amazing location for birds, for star-gazing and for walking in the countryside. The joy of this part of the Algarve is that it is not overrun by tourists, who are mainly Portuguese and Spanish. Vila Real retains its Portuguese charm, and a ferry from here is a pleasant trip into Spain. The nearest beach, which stretches for miles, is at Praia Verde. The glorious River Guadiana and its valley is close by and a drive north will take you to the small towns, vineyards and cork oaks of the Alentejo. The salt marshes around Castro Marim are renowned for bird watching. Monte Gordo with its lively nightlife and casino is on the nearby coast and the lovely town of Tavira is not far away. 2 fine golf courses are within 8 kms. The villa is therefore very well situated for those wishing to explore; or you may prefer simply to laze by the swimming pool and to take in the views from the various terraces, or from the shaded decking area where the main BBQ is placed. The property is managed for us by Luis, who will meet you on arrival and will respond quickly to any problems which you may have during your stay. .
