|Further details outdoors|
Beautiful country views from the terrace and pool area with the sea in the distance - stunning sunsets. Outside, one terrace area is cool and shady, but one another is a sun worshippers' paradise. The attractive garden has jasmine, bougainvillea and roses, a lemon tree and figs.
Strategic garden lighting enhances the whole area in the evening when sitting or having a barbecue on one of the several terrace areas, all equipped with appropriate furniture and cushions. The garden is totally screened from the lane by a wall and tall shrubs so is secluded.
The private pool is large with steps leading in to the shallow end with grab rails, the deep end is approx. 2.5 metres. The pool is fenced so is ideal for families.
There is private parking to the side of the villa.
The Algarve region
Boliqueime is in central Algarve approx. 25 minute drive from Faro airport. The climate is very mild in Winter and hot in Summer, but generally there is a pleasant breeze to temper the heat.
Places to visit include Faro (with an old walled city ), Loule 15 minute drive which has a delightful market each Saturday morning,Vilamoura 10 minute drive one of Europe's largest holiday complexes with golf courses casino, marina, boating. Estoi with Roman ruins.
Malhadais where Casa das Figueiras is situated, is on the outskirts of Boliqueime, and the village is a pretty 15 minute walk, though we do advise clients that a car is essential for getting around.
In the village a beautiful church dominates the main street, but all that is needed for a holiday can be found here including bank, pharmacy, small supermarket, patisserie, butcher, fishmonger bars and delightful restaurants for eating out.
Now and again a small market comes and traders set up shop in the main street.
A short 10/15 minute drive and you have some of the loveliest beaches in Europe. Children adore exploring the rock pools in Olhos D'Agua or the splendid stretches of Falesia beach.
Water parks are in easy reach, and so too a Dolphinarium.
