Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

The immaculately presented, split-level, open plan design of this villa is ideal for entertaining. Steps lead up from the sitting room to the double-height kitchen and dining area with a timber staircase up to the mezzanine level. This level opens onto a sheltered upper terrace with views over the village and surrounding countryside. There are two bedrooms either side of the living area which makes this villa ideal for 2 families sharing as well as one family wanting that extra space. Outside a screened terrace surrounds a large, heated swimming pool with solar heated poolside shower and electrically operated pool cover - a good 'child friendly' option.

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.
