About Roger and Sandy

We both decided to retire to Portugal in 2015 and bought Villa Arrochella as a running business. We actually live at the villa in a self contained annex which is completely independent from the main house with our dogs and enjoy the area and lifestyle surrounding Arrochella. Previous guests have commented on this and find it a good idea as we are on site if there are any problems but not interfering with there seclusion .

Roger and Sandy purchased this villa in 2015

Why Roger and Sandy chose Loule region

This is a very unique Villa as you are completely secluded yet only minutes away from all the local beaches, bars and restaurants .

What makes this villa unique

We liked Villa Arrochella as it's a short enough journey into the marina, beaches and restaurants but unlike most properties, is not in any way overlooked, being secluded with no immediate neighbours making it a very unique property.

The outside pool has a very unusual feature of having a removeable glass canopy, which traps all solar heat during the cooler months. This therefore means, unlike most properties, the pool can be used all year round.

Wonderful well maintained villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that I've stayed in this villa.

It's spacious, clean and very well maintained. The rooms are dressed to a very high standard and it's really well equipt for kids. The play room is cool and the amount of inflatable toys for mucking around in the pool is brilliant.! The villa is situated in a very tranquil area. With wonderful views.

My friends who stayed with me all said they would return with their family and other friends.

When we arrived at the villa we was taken back by the size of it. It is massive!

It has a lovely pool with quality furniture around it to lounge on

The Villa itself is beautifully decorated and furnished. It is immaculate and clean.

We had a amazing stay here and could not of asked for more.
