The new pool cover ensures that the large roman ended heated salt water pool maintains the perfect temperature between use. The villa affords total privacy making it an ideal place to spend a family holiday, honeymoon or romantic break and enjoys spectacular uninterrupted and panoramic views across the valley with views out to the sea. Easily accessed from the main road and situated on a made up and lit private lane with off road parking for two cars, Casa Boa Sorte is just a few mins drive or bike ride from the delightful unspoilt town of Sao Bras de Alportel, once the cork capital of Portugal with its restaurants and all the facilities you'd expect to find in a small town including a choice of supermarkets including Intermarche. Pavement cafe's are a plenty for times when you just want to enjoy a mouth watering cake and coffee and do a bit of people watching. Sao Bras is a favoured destination of some very well known celebrities who have come to relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere, so you never know who you might be sitting next to, as you widen your eyes and whisper "is that who I think it is" and the answer we can tell you is probably yes. But everyone respects their privacy. Leaving Sao Bras an easy 20 minute drive will take you to Loule, the coast and beaches, golf courses and Faro airport. Tavira and the Spanish border town Ayamonte are also within easy reach and Lisbon is a 2hr drive. With its unique microclimate and sheltered positon, Sao Bras is one of the Algarve's best kept secrets and the location couldn't be more ideal for exploring the best the region and the Algarve has to offer.

Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The region experiences hot summers and mild winters, rich in history with an abundance of forts and castles to explore. Great beaches and a fantastic climate allow you to do as much or as little as so desire.

Take a visit along the picturesque coastline to the historic Castro Marim where you will find amazing panoramic views of the sea. Travelling west the rocks, white cliffs and sandy beaches are again beautifully pictureque.

The unspoilt Eastern Coast is breathtaking and inland there are forests, the Monchique mountains where at 'Caldos do Monchique' there is a natural spring purported to have healing waters, where people for centuries have travelled to from all over the world to drink it's waters and be cured of their ailments. These and many other activities from water parks, zoomarine, to nature trails and historic sites there is something for all the family . The river Guardiana meanders and where it meets the mouth of the atlantic separates Portugal from Spain, which is accessed via the Guardiana Bridge where from the villa is only a 30 minute journey. 'Ayamonte' is the first Spanish town you come accross on crossing the Guardiana Bridge and a further hour and a half will take you to 'Seville'. The motorways( (A22, IP1 & EN125) are all well sign posted in both Portugal and Spain, Sao Bras de Alportel is a well known town and sign posted everywhere.

Casa Boa Sorte is therefore exceptionally located for access to both the historical sites, beaches, golf courses and travelling both to central costal (Quinta Do Lago/Vale Do Lobo/Vilamoura resorts) and the beautiful quiet beaches of the Eastern Algarve. The stunning wildlife of the Ria Formosa which is protected habitat is again on your doorstep. What more from a holiday could you possibly ask for, not forgetting Portugals great culinary cuisine (fresh sea food especially).

“Great villa”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

Our family had a fantastic stay at Casa Boa Sorte. The villa was lovely and equipped with everything you would want for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The location was fantastic, set on a quiet hillside with amazing views. It is only a short drive to the local beaches and shops and has a few nice restaurants close by. The children had a great time playing in the pool, which was far bigger than you would find in most holiday villas. It was also heated, which was an added bonus and meant that the children could swim right into the evening. The villa itself was comfortable and very well equipped, from the sun loungers, pool floats and hammock to the kitchen equipment. It made our stay easy, relaxing and enjoyable. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We all had a great time and are looking forward to visiting Casa Boa Sorte again soon.

“A luxurious villa, well-equipped, in a stunning location”

Reviewed 17 May 2011

I stayed here for a week with my husband, 8 month old son and my parents and it was absolutely wonderful - the men went to play golf (which was an easy 25 min drive away) while we played by the lovely pool and relaxed in the comfort of the villa! The location itself is beautiful and rural but only a two minute drive to Sao Bras de Alportel which is really quaint and a bit further to Lule, Tavira etc which are bigger and have everything you need. Perfect location really. The villa is incredibly well equipped for children - we used their cot, highchair, stroller, pool toys, monitor..the list goes on! It really took the stress out of traveling with the baby for the first time - ideal. The maid is lovely and friendly too! Absolutely beautiful villa in a gorgeous quiet location but with everything you need a short drive away - a perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
