This beautifully light and spacious villa is virtually a sanctuary, tucked away in the Algarve countryside, but close to the ancient town of Silves. The surrounding forty acres of land, planted with citrus and avocado trees, guarantee an undisturbed holiday in this lovely spot.
The house itself, with its garden, large swimming pool and barbecue area, is enclosed by a natural stone wall, yet the gentle slope of the land allows guests to look out over the views unobserved. The garden is, indeed, one of the most attractive features of the property with pine tree-shaded lawns, a lovely rockery and a barbecue area artfully constructed from an old bread oven.
An unusually large swimming pool is surrounded by a sunny terrace with shady lawns adjacent for a quick retreat when the sun gets too hot, while to the rear of the property there is a championship-sized hard tennis court for the energetic. Modern and very comfortably furnished throughout, the house has a large living and dining room opening on to a covered terrace that makes outdoor dining a very special option. The bedrooms, with their richly coloured chestnut wood floors, are all air-conditioned and also have underfloor heating to offset the possible chill of early or late season.
The ancient Moorish castle town of Silves is a short distance away – the numerous local festivals held throughout the summer make it very well worth visiting. The entire region is one of great beauty, with its immense variety of cultivated trees – citrus, almond, fig, carob – and its pretty whitewashed villages. Fantastic Algarve beaches and superb golf courses may also tempt you away from the serenity of Quinta da Alegria from time to time!
