Drop-dead Gorgeous Algarve Country Retreat

"Enjoy leisurely walks through the vast estate full of fig, walnut and orange trees.” - Reviewed by Sofia

This exquisite villa in the heart of Portugal’s Algarve boasts approximately 300m2 (3,200sqft) of luxurious tranquillity on a 92-hectare private estate peppered with fruit trees and gardens. Although you enjoy quiet seclusion around your private pool, in just 15 minutes you can be at the beach or tucking into sardines in Portimão.

The stunning 17th-century countryside retreat has remained in the same family for over 360 years. Renovated in 2018, the home is a place full of inspiration and could make a perfect VIP retreat or a unique venue for a one-of-a-kind surprise for someone special.

Besides the main house — with 5 bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, living and dining areas and staff quarters — there are two guest houses and a lovely private chapel, where you’ll find a beautiful altar crafted with traditional Portuguese carving.

Surrounded by acres of manicured and well-tended gardens the pool area is slightly apart from the home offering an idyllic, sheltered area to spend leisurely days soaking up the tranquility, playing with the kids or dozing under a shady umbrella or centuries old tree.

The two guest cottages are a stone’s throw from the main house, each beautifully appointed with fresh, fun furnishings, spacious living/dining rooms are cozy with a wood burning fireplace and TV. A small, but well-equipped kitchen with breakfast veranda and two full bathrooms (one upstairs and one down).

With plenty of spaces for you and your companions to come together – including an area for barbecues and al fresco socializing as well as a central patio – you may be tempted to spend your whole getaway within its beautiful confines. Enjoy leisurely walks through the vast estate full of fig, walnut and orange trees. Horse lovers will be happy to know that there is a riding centre nearby.

In these surprisingly peaceful surroundings, you are sure to experience a relaxed and memorable stay in this authentic Algarve retreat.
