Architect designed and completed in 2008, this quiet south facing luxurious villa is set in 5.000 m2 extensive gardens on a hill in Mealhas near São Brás de Alportel, and has one of the widest and most interesting views in the Algarve, with rolling hills, the Atlantic and villages all in sight. The hill location ensures cool breezes in the day and spectacular sunsets in the evening.
The villa combines modernity and traditional Portuguese touches, with vaulted ceilings, a magnificent Boveda entrance ceiling and travertine flooring. Concealed LED mood lights in every ceiling throughout provide just the right atmosphere.
All three bedrooms each have a full ensuite bathroom, with a toilet, bidet and a shower tower, rainshower or spa tub/shower combination depending on the suite. Perhaps most importantly the beds (Kårlsson) are extremely comfortable.
The house has been furnished to a high standard (Roche Bobois, Vincent Shepherd furniture and Zara linens) and has every amenity required, including a fireplace, 2 satellite TV's, Sonos sound system in every room, high speed 4G internet, a well equipped kitchen (with an induction De Dietrich hob), central vacuum system and underfloor heating and separate air-conditioning/heating units in every room.
The south and west facing living room has a wood fireplace (plenty of free wood supplied), and satellite linked TV, as well as access to the patios on both sides.
Below the main living area there is a two car garage with a pool table and Miele washing machine for your convenience.
Every room and bedroom in the villa opens on to its own terrace, with access to the pool and gardens. There is a lawn to play on and the cool travertine pool deck and terraces have loungers and oversized parasols arranged around the infinity pool, affording spectacular views while you swim.
A separate folding glass walled garden house by the pool with full kitchen and dining, has both gas and wood/charcoal fired grills. Enjoy the sunset over dinner from here, perhaps after first taking a stroll around the gardens with cork oaks, olives, figs, lavender, bougainvillea, palms and oleanders.
Twenty minutes’ drive from Faro airport, and five minutes from excellent restaurants and supermarkets in lively São Brás, the beaches and the market town of Loulé are also close by, as are the Algarve’s many superb golf courses.
There are walking and running trails around the villa in the hamlet of Mealhas.
