Luxurious Spacious Villa, large pool, Almaverde Spa Res

Immaculately furnished and presented, this attractive two-storey villa is set in lush gardens in a secluded position with rustic lands to the south and east. The front door opens to the hallway, with the master bedroom and its en suite bathroom to one side and a study to the other. The hallway leads to the large open-plan dining and living area (41 m2), with its double-height, vaulted timber ceiling and gallery above. The kitchen area is approached through an archway leading from the dining area. Both living area and kitchen have double patio doors leading to a south-facing terrace covered by a timber pergola and to the large, private, heated pool with its electrically-operated pool cover. There is also a retractable awning providing additional shading to the pool terrace. The rear gardens surrounding the pool are fenced and gated for family security. Stairs lead from the hallway to the upper level accommodation comprising two double bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms, plus a gallery (16 m2) overlooking the living area. The gallery and one of the bedrooms lead to a large roof terrace (19 m2), with table and chairs, while the other bedroom has its own small south-facing roof terrace.

The villa is located in the resort community of AlmaVerde at the gateway to the vast and relatively undiscovered Costa Vicentina Natural Park, with its rugged coastline and golden beaches. This peaceful, rustic setting is still only 10 km from the marina, colourful markets and vibrant nightlife of cosmopolitan Lagos.

About the area

AlmaVerde village is situated on a 58 hectare rustic setting among mature oak, pine and carob trees at the gateway to the Costa Vicentina Natural Park. The site enjoys an elevated position with sweeping views over the surrounding countryside. To the North, the site overlooks the traditional village of Barão de São Miguel, and to the South, the Burgau valley and coastal hills. The beach at the picturesque fishing village of Burgau is just three minutes by car (2km), while the historic port of Lagos, with its colourful markets, attractive marina and vibrant nightlife, is only ten minutes away (<10km) and hosts over 100 restaurants.

10 km West of Lagos and 1 hour away from the nearest airport in Faro.

Burgau and Salema are both traditional fishing villages with sandy beaches, beachside bars and restaurants. Burgau is only 2km from AlmaVerde. Between them lie the quieter beaches of Cabanas Velhas and Boca do Rio, where an underground river discharges into a small estuary and once provided enough fresh water for rice paddies.
