About our home

Our villa is situated in the hills above the market town of Loule, Central Algarve, and is only 25 minutes from Faro airport and the nearest beaches. It is in a quiet rural location and situated in a large, completely private walled garden which is well maintained, and with views of the surrounding hills, and the Atlantic. There are many shops and restaurants just a short drive away.
The house itself has five spacious bedrooms, one ensuite, with two further bathrooms and two shower rooms. There is a large sitting room/ dining room with T.V, and a very well equipped kitchen. Off the kitchen there is a terrace with a BBQ , tables and chairs, and great views, with access to the heated pool. On the lower ground floor there is a large games room with a snooker table, table tennis table, air hockey table, football table, comfortable seating area with another large T.V and Xbox. There is also direct access to the pool, and parking area from this room. There are plenty of sun beds on the pool terrace, and a shaded area to sit.
There is air/con and wifi throughout the house. A cleaner is available and we have a villa manager.
This is our home for six months of the year so it is a home from home.
