Romantic and modern, small ”fortress”
Exclusive styled villa formed as a romantic, yet modern, small "fortress" with ocean view, a designed, terraced garden of 1000 m2 with various fruit trees providing plenty of exotic fruits, and several hideaways seating areas and a small pool.
The villa is located in a luxurious residential area on a hill side with several international restaurants, tennis and mini-market within short walking distance.
There is a 15 minutes’ drive to the airport, huge shopping centers, famous beaches, aqua lands, golf courses and Faro city.
Arriving to the property the first thing you see is the spacious and elegant outside driveway with nicely designed stone patterns. You enter through the double gates into the private courtyard. The courtyard is approx. 30 meters long from the gates until the end of it where there is the stone lion “Aslan” guarding the buildings around.
There is a certain feeling of a bit romantic, yet modern, Portuguese fort when entering this property.
One is entering the house through a glass wall hallway into the kitchen/living room where a sofa and armchairs are placed near the TV and fireplace, and at the other end of the room the open solution kitchen and dining table are placed.
It’s a nice ocean view from the kitchen window and while seated at the dining table.
In front of the kitchen/ lounge there’s a conservatory of 30 m2 with some 10 meters of glass sliding walls, reaching from floor to roof. At one end of the conservatory there is a long sofa with several sofa tables and footstools, and at the other end of the room there’s a sofa-bed of 140 cm width under the AirCon.
The conservatory also has a pleasant view of the garden, ocean and hills in the distance.
Going from the lounge/ kitchen in another direction one comes to an elegant and all-Portuguese tiled bathroom (hand painted tiles) with big mirrors and shower.
Next to the bathroom the bedroom is located with a high, 160 cm width, bed under the AirCon. It’s a romantic bedroom with genuine, antique carpets on the tiled floor.
Outside, in the old cisterna tower, nowadays a big round table is placed seating almost 20 persons. You enter the cisterna through the 3 arches. The walls inside the cisterna are decorated with pine trees and a hug cork tree made of cork, by a local artist.
Next to the cisterna is the BBQ area with double grills and big outside kitchen table with running water.
On top of the cisterna is a private roof terrace with comfortable sun chairs perfect to have an evening drink and enjoy the great coastline view. In the evenings you can see the glitter down on the lowlands below and follow the planes in the horizon land and take off.
If you lay back in the comfortable chairs you’ll also have a marvelous view of the stars in the night sky.
The garden is well designed and makes use of the 1000 m2 with terraces and paths leading to different hideaway seating areas and among the trees where you can pluck as many fruit as you’d like to eat.
There are some 20+ fruit trees and berries, such as:
For example have a seat in the grape house and pluck/ eat champagne grapes and black grapes directly from the pergola as a desert.
There are also plenty of flower plantings in the garden, all different in style and color matching - from long walls covered with intensively pink bougainvillea, to stone miniature landscapes with lavish lavender and rosemary fields framing silver succulent plants.
Around the small pool (4.5 meter diameter/ 130 cm depth) there is a light sand ground, framed by palm trees. Next to the pool is a big sun deck with sun beds and garden dining table.
Just outside the conservatory there’s a big lawn with lounge chairs, from where you have a good overlook of the ocean and hills in the distance. Wide stone stairs leads you down to the lower terrace of the garden where the fruit trees and pool area are.
You’ll also have hideaway seating areas in a romantic, all-flower covered pergola next to the cisterna where you comfortably can read a book in the baden-baden armchairs and overlook the ocean, or on the stone bench under the old Alfarroba tree behind the overgrown flower field.
It is all private, no one can see you here, but you have a great view of the ocean and you are in the middle of everything/ in the central Algarve.
It is walking distance to The Solar where 3 international restaurants are located.
You also have walking distance to local services like tennis courts, mini-market, small medical clinic, great nature walks or pleasant walks in/around the luxury residential area of QdR.
At Villa V you’ll enjoy an elevated life with style!
