Casa Dos Ninhos, AlmaVerde
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This elegant, detached villa is set in mature Mediterranean gardens, with its own heated pool. A circular entrance hall with domed ceiling lets in the natural sunlight and leads to an attractive, partly double-height, open-plan living area. This is a great design for families, as the fully equipped kitchen, dining and living areas are all on one level. Timber stairs lead up to a small gallery and out to a large roof terrace for private sun bathing or star gazing. Two of the three bedrooms have en suite shower rooms, with the added availability of a shared bathroom. Double doors lead from the living area, the master and second bedrooms on to the terracotta pool terrace.
This pool terrace and garden has been fully fenced in and has the option of a removable safety net around the pool - an excellent child friendly option. The owners have also added an extra, decked seating area which serves as an excellent relaxing area and is quite unique to this type of property.
The villa is set in the award-winning, landscaped village of AlmaVerde - a collection of privately owned, traditionally built property in the rural surrounds of the protected Costa Vincentina National Park. All guests have access to tennis courts and a children's playground which are both within walking distance of each villa. Guests also have access to a Day Spa, offering a range of beauty treatments and therapies, located in one of the villas near the playground.

The Algarve region
As you travel across the Western Algarve, you will pass through an area of unchanged traditions, brought together with the latest modern conveniences and exciting holiday attractions. Welcoming its guests with the Mediterranean climate, the Western Algarve reveals a great variety of flora and fauna. The region is rich in biodiversity and ecosystems making it of a great ecological interest. The best way to discover the aromas and flavours of the Western Algarve is to stroll through the narrow streets and alleys found away from the coast. Here you will find a myriad of local restaurants and bars indulging into the dainties of traditional cuisine. The range of choices includes famous regional delicacies such as figs, almonds, carobs and a very special brandy. Only a step away from the restful inland area is the excitement of the Western Algarve night-life and the most beautiful beaches in Europe. During the daytime you can enjoy fanciful shadows of the rocky coastline casted on the sand and as soon as the night comes revel in the merrymaking of bars, discos, marinas and casinos. The region's built heritage reveals particular memories of the ancestors of the Western Algarve, making it a special cultural place to visit. If you are looking for an active holiday time, the Western Algarve offers a range of outdoor sports from golfing on the green courses to physical exercise at the region's excellent facilities.
Lagos (pronounced "lah-gosh") is one of the Algarve's most attractive and historic towns, capturing the imagination with its carefree holiday spirit, laid-back lifestyle and immense historical wealth. With its cobbled streets and colourful Marina, Lagos has some excellent restaurants, good shops and great nightlife plus a range of family activities and superb beaches on the doorstep. 10 minutes west of Lagos is Burgau, a picturesque fishing Village with pretty white cottages, jumble of drawn up fishing boats and a sheltered sandy beach with lively beach bar. A handful of restaurants and mini-market serve the village and those looking for a more local lifestyle. AlmaVerde is found 4km inland from Burgau, 55 minutes from Faro and 10 minutes from Lagos. This award winning village comprises a selection of newly built, luxurious yet tradtiional looking Villas with access to a day spa, tennis courts and countryside as far as the eye can see. The nearest beach is Burgau with the sandy beaches of Salema, Zavial, Figueira, Sagres and Martinhal all within a 5 - 15 minute drive West. To the East are the beaches of Luz, Porto de Mos, Lagos and many more within 10 minutes. Only 10 minutes either East or West are two golf courses - Parque da Floresta and Boa Vista. Slightly further afoot are a range of golf courses, many of which are championship level - the famous Penina, Quinta do Lago and Vale da Lobo (Golden Triangle) courses are within a 45 minute drive.

"Excellent standard villa in a perfect location which the whole family loved"
146 Alma Verde is a great villa for a family with young children like ours. The safety net around the pool was terrific to have. Our 4 year old came on greatly in the pool and he and the toddler loved the playground. A car is essential for getting to beaches, restaurants, shops etc. but driving was very easy. The facilities and cleanliness of the villa could not be faulted with very regular cleaning, gardening and pool services provided during our stay.

"Superb villa with all the equipment you could ever need."
We had a wonderful 2 week stay with our daughter, son-in-law and 7 month old grandson. The villa was cleaned regularly and contained everything we needed during our stay. The location was very peaceful. We were even adopted by a couple of cats during our stay and when we mentioned to one of the staff, Corola, that one appeared quite poorly, she immediately took him to the vet who sorted him out - very nice personal touch. We would most certainly go back. We were very lucky with the weather and visited some outstanding beaches in the area.
