About the property

The prefect escape, stylish yet family friendly 5 bedroom villa with large pool

Originally built in 1925 and fully refurbished in 2014 whilst retaining its original character, this beautiful farm house is spacious, comfortable and very private.

Set in an idyllic, peaceful, rural location 5 minutes from the town of Loule, a thriving traditional Portuguese town with a daily market, cafes, bars and shops. Also within a 15 minute drive of the best beaches and golf courses on the Algarve and 20 minutes drive from Faro airport.

A bright and airy kitchen leads to outside dining/pool area with outdoor fireplace perfect for long summer evenings. The kitchen also adjoins the open plan indoor dining/lounge area with 12 seat dining table, sofas and large wood burning stove for cooler evenings in the autumn and spring.

9 of us stayed at the villa including a 4 month old baby. Everything we needed was there and more. The younger people in our party did not leave the pool. The villa is located in a quiet area but within easy distance of beautiful beaches and a water park. We had an excellent week and would definitely stay again. Linda and Mick were very pleasant and helpful

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in. Everything we could have wished for was provided. We are a family of 12 and the accommodation was just perfect. In a quiet rural area but 5 minutes from supermarket and only 15 minutes to beaches and resorts if you need them. The website is very accurate - if anything, understated. Mike and Linda were most helpful and always there if needed. It was great to have an excellent TV/ music system (especially as the Olympics were on during our first week!). We would love to return to Villa Andorinha and highly recommend it.

Stunning, well equipped, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beautiful villa a number of times now and absolutely love it. Close to Faro airport and Loule town yet rural enough to enjoy complete peace and tranquility. The villa itself is beautiful inside and out, very well decorated with everything you could possibly require. The outside pool area is stunning and days can just drift by relaxing in the sunshine. If you feel like exploring there are wonderful beaches within a 15 mins drive and the luxury resorts of Vale de Lobo and Quinta do Lago are close by too. There are great waterparks close by for the kids as well. A truly beautiful villa and we look forward to visiting again very soon.

Beautiful, peaceful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This villa was as wonderful as the pictures depicted it to be and incredibly convenient to get to from the airport. Beautifuy decorated and sparklingly clean inside and out with a lovely, large pool it was the perfect spot to relax in. There's lots to see and do in the surrounding area and the beaches are all in easy reach of the property, as is the supermarket and local food markets. We feel lucky to have discovered it and we are already excited about booking it again for next year and taking more friends with us too!
