Experience the REAL Portugal! Beautiful, peaceful, detached villa with private enclosed garden.Purchased on T.V. show 'A Place in the Sun-Home or Away'! 4 Double bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, large through living/dining area with vaulted wooden ceiling, kitchen.All linen and bedding provided.

Located in Longueira/ Almograve (it is listed as Odemira, but that is the 'principality' it stands in, the villa is not in the town).Only minutes to numerous stunning, unspoilt beaches to suit every taste-the rugged, mind blowing beauty of the beaches at Zambujeira du Mar, or the calm, shallow, dune fringed beach of Furnas. Surf down the sand dunes, surf the waves, kayak down the river, water ski the estuary or just relax on the uncrowded beaches!

Situated in the magical Alentejo region,where strict building restrictions means there are no high rises or over development, and the areas beauty is protected because of it's 'National Park' status. The Alentejo is the home of poets, writers and artists, attracted by it's mystery and energy. Z-Mar Eco resort is 7 minutes drive offering spa facilities, zip wire tree adventures, all kinds of sports facilities including- cycling, archery, tennis,and 2 huge swimming pools.

The local town of Vila Nova va Milfontes, with it's historic castle built, into the cliff edge standing guard over the town, offers numerous bars, cafes, fantastic restaurants, some located on the beach, to suit all budgets. The traditional indoor fish and vegetable market, which is held everyday, is the best place to buy fresh food (and meet the friendly locals), the fish is caught only 3 hours earlier. You can even buy fish straight off the fishing boats if you rise early enough in the morning! A variety of shops and supermarkets provide everything you need.The pretty town of Odemira is a 15-20 min drive.

The vibrant and architecturally stunning city of Lisbon is only 1 hr 45 min drive, and is well worth a visit.The Algarve is 40 minutes.

Attention Poverty, Time Scarcity and Sensory Saturation are the major problems we face in the modern world. Our over revved, information overloaded, congested minds lead to stress anxiety and depression, which reduces the experience of the richness of life.A holiday at this property promotes Mindfulness, Calm, Clarity and Relaxation, allowing you to take time out from the 'Rat Race', therefore there is deliberately no wi-fi at the property,to ensure guests TOTALLY switch off and de-stress (though internet access is available in town), no SKY T.V (though there is a T.V and D.V.D with numerous movies provided) and lots of board games, books and magazines to encourage maximum relaxation and chill out time. Re-energise your mind by switching it off during your holiday stay, and notice the increase in your happiness.Leave 'Busy' and 'Doing' at home, and holiday with the focus on 'Being'!

The Alentejo region

Experience the REAL Portugal!The house sits in the magical Alentejo region, where strict building restrictions means there are no high rises or over development, the area is protected because of it's 'National Park' status. The Alentejo is the home of poets, writers and artists, attracted by it's mystery, inspiration and energy.The air is full of eucalyptus scent and the earth is scorched orange, cork trees scatter across the landscape.The warm light engulfs you, and the beauty seduces even the most hardened city dweller! Sunshine is almost guaranteed on a visit to Portugal, with over 300 days of sunshine per year.

The pretty town of Odemira and Vila Nova va Milfontes are the nearest towns, and the Algarve are within easy reach.

The vibrant and architecturally stunning city of Lisbon is only 1 hr 45 min drive, and is well worth a visit.

N.B Not suitable for lovers of nightclubs, loud bars, english anything-pubs/ breakfast/newspapers.Perfect for those seeking to slow down, step off the treadmill and experience life in a richer way. Promotes Calm, Clarity and Relaxation, allowing you to take time out from the 'Rat Race' and recharge your batteries.

Leave 'Busy' and 'Doing' at home, and holiday with the focus on 'Being'!
