The villa has an established garden with tall pine trees, its own swimming pool set into a lawn, and secluded terraces. There is an attractive outside dining area with a large wooden table, built-in barbeque, a bread oven and a covered awning. There is a gate from here leading to the rest of the garden and pool area. The house is of interesting and unusual design; there is a glass wall looking towards the garden, an irregular shaped living/dining room with an attractive fire and an open, wooden staircase leading to the first floor (not recommended for young children). The ultra modern kitchen has a wooden breakfast bar, granite work surfaces and built-in stainless steel appliances.
Wide, open stairs lead to the first floor (not suitable for young children), there is a mezzanine overlooking the sitting room with a TV and comfortable seating. The bedrooms on the first floor have terraces which again are not considered suitable for children. The bedrooms on the ground floor open onto the garden and pool. Within the development there is a large, communal pool (open from June to September), tennis courts and a snack bar; guests can buy a day pass to use these facilities.
There is a supermarket, café and gourmet shop in the Commercial Centre (walking distance from villa) at the entrance to the development and the café can arrange take away meals. The Herdade da Aroeira is surrounded by 10kms of some of the best beaches in Portugal. The nearest beach, Fonte da Telha, has a number of restaurants specialising in grilled fish; most have wonderful terraces (perfect to watch the sunset) and many become discos after dark.
