Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This stylish, modern and comfortable Villa with large, heated pool is set in extensive gardens. A spectacular highlight of this design is the sheltered inner courtyard which gives the villa a tremendous feeling of space and light. Arches lead from the hallway to the large kitchen and open-plan dining area, with arches also leading to the large main living area. Sets of patio doors from the living and dining areas lead outside onto spacious, south facing pool terrace area which is perfect for relaxing and taking in the stunning views of the local countryside. A large, heated pool is beyond the terrace as well as the very private garden. A mezzanine level, accessed via a concealed staircase, offers extra seating space as well as giving access to two south facing private roof terraces orientated to catch the sun at different times of day.
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.

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.

"Didn't want to Leave"
We were delighted to see that the pictures in the advert were an accurate portrayal of this great villa. although part of a development of several villas you feel very private. The pool was great, loved it being a salt water pool. The gardens are well maintained and the villa is clean. Would love to go back again.
