Quinta da Alegria
Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Quinta da Alegria is a very spacious and luxurious holiday villa for up to 12 guests with lovely gardens and heated swimming pool plus a tennis court. It sits on a private 40 acre plot planted with avocados and citrus trees. It is ideal for a large family or group of friends looking for rural seclusion, yet wanting to be close to good amenities. This is also a superb location if you are either a golf or tennis fan – Nick Faldo´s new “Amendoeiras” golf course is only 5 minutes away and we can organize private tennis coaching at the villa!
The interior is modern and comfortable with mosquito netting on all windows and air-conditioning throughout the villa. All the bedrooms (3 double and 3 twins) have en-suite bathrooms, chestnut wood floors and have under floor heating. Other rooms in the villa have terracotta tiled floors and the large reception and dining rooms have “French” windows, which open onto a covered terrace for eating outdoors, looking down to the pretty garden with rockery, flowers and shrubs but mostly laid to lawn and with pines trees providing plenty of shade.
The house, garden, swimming pool (with heating included April - October), outdoor shower and barbeque area (converted old bread oven and pigsty) are enclosed by a natural stone wall, which allows one to look out but provides total privacy. There is a championship size tennis court at the rear of the property and a shaded games area (table tennis and table football) plus parking for several cars.
Silves is only a short distance away and offers several food shops, banks and restaurants. This ancient Moorish castle town also hosts a number of different festivals throughout the summer and has an old cork factory “Fabrica do Inglês”, which is now a museum and cultural centre, as well as housing a selection of good value and fun eateries and bars. There are several beaches and golf courses within a short driving distance.
