Authentic Countryside Villa in the Algarve
"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.
This 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, 2 fully-equipped kitchens, living and dining areas and staff quarters — there are two guest houses and a lovely chapel. Though the chapel was built more recently than the original structure, its façade matches the rest of the property. Inside, you will find a beautiful altar crafted with traditional Portuguese carving.
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 at Quinta da Duna Alta.
