A modern, stylish, well furnished villa, perfect for relaxing with friends and family. This is the ideal holiday spot for all ages.

Ideally located on a hillside, the villa has a real feeling of privacy and enjoys stunning views of the mountains and the traditional Portuguese village of Porches, which is just over 1km away. There you can find the nearest amenities including a mini market, bakery/cafe, ATM machine and even a hairdresser. Armação de Pêra, with its long sandy beaches and water front restaurants is only 5km away and the famous Marinha and Benagil beaches, from where you can take a boat trip to explore the many caves, are just 7km from the villa. A short 700m stroll down the hill brings you to Porches Beer Garden, a great place for lunch or dinner with a fantastic atmosphere, suitable for all the family. Around the corner you will also find the famous Porches Pottery where you can pick up some handmade souvenirs or enjoy lunch in the beautiful Bacchus Bar. For those seeking the thrills of a waterpark, Aqualand is only 4km away, with Slide n' Splash and Zoo Marine also nearby.

Arriving at the villa, there are electric gates which open onto a private driveway, lined with oleander bushes. At the top there is a plenty of space for parking, including a covered carport. The front door leads to a spacious entrance with stairs up to the first floor master bedroom. This has a king size bed and en suite facilities including a corner bath. There are patio doors which lead out to a south facing first floor terrace with stunning views - a wonderful place to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening aperitif. On the ground floor there are two twin bedrooms, one of which is en suite with a walk in shower, WC and sink. There is also a separate WC/shower room. All bedrooms have AC/heating units, fitted wardrobes with ample hanging space and drawer units.

At the heart of the property, the 5m x 10m private pool is great for exercise and enjoyment. There is a high quailty gas poolside barbeque with outside dining furniture to allow you to while away the long summer evenings with a cheeky glass of the local wines. The villa is nestled amongst sub tropical gardens, with a variety of fruit trees and plenty of room for children to run and play.

Inside, the property has been freshly decorated and is bright and airy with a real holiday feeling. The lounge and kitchen/dining area is open plan, with 2 sets of patio doors leading out onto a large terrace. The kitchen has all modern conveniences and a large table/breakfast bar.

About Samantha and Bruno

Having spent many years travelling far and wide and living in different countries around the world, we fell in love with the gorgeous Algarve. We love the bright, vibrant colours and the fact that you are never far from another stunning beach.

Samantha and Bruno purchased this villa in 2015

Why Samantha and Bruno chose Sobral

During our property search we made many trips to the area and looked at lots of different villas and apartments. The moment we drove up the driveway to Quinta Vista da Montanha, we looked at each other and knew that this was the one for us. It is such a special place. It is very private and secluded, without feeling isolated. You cannot see any neighbours from within the grounds and they cannot see you. You are close enough to the best that the Algarve has to offer whilst staying in your own corner of paradise. We wanted somewhere that we could come to enjoy quality time chilling with friends and family and this is the perfect spot. The pool is long and deep enough to swim lengths in and a perfect place for the children to play. We loved the indoor/outdoor living opportunities that the house provides - as soon as we arrive, we open the patio doors out to the terrace and use the spacious terraces, garden and pool area as an extension of the house. We have decorated throughout and have tried to ensure that you have all home comforts here but really feel that you are on holiday.

Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Portugal and we were not disappointed. We loved the villa and it's location. The villa was spotless and more spacious than it appeared from the photos. The kitchen was very well kitted out - a home from home ! It is very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was super efficient - can't imagine being without it ! We particularly loved the terrace from the master bedroom for breakfast while the teenagers were still asleep in mornings. Really nice to access it from the lower terrace and poolside. Great pool for teenage kids - also plenty space around pool for sunbathers. Beautiful gardens. So secluded, yet a nice walk down to Porches. We ate in Meet & Meat Restaurant (Steakhouse + Tapas) in the village. Food was superb as was the service. Good driving distance from the coast -we walked the coastal route from Benagil to Marinha - utterly stunning scenery and a great walk for all the family !!

Sam and Bruno have made this a perfect, beautiful yet relaxed holiday home. We would absolutely recommend it and hopefully will return to it again one day ! Thank you Sam and Bruno.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sam's holiday home for a week in the summer and it's one of the best holidays we've ever had. It was so relaxing as we had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped, inside and outside eating area, the fab pool and even toys for our 3 year old to play with. The steps on the side of the pool were perfect for my daughter. There was also CBeebies and English TV! The beds were all very comfortable as was the linen and the ensuite shower was superb. The house is extremely well located, as it's not far from the towns and beaches. We visited some beautiful beaches and went out for lunch and dinner a few times too. It only took about 30 minutes to get back to the airport too. We will definitely be booking again!

Fabulous property for all the family!

  • 5 of 5

The property could not have been more perfect for the family holiday that we wanted to enjoy. We were able to relax with peace of mind that the kids were all happily playing in the pool or the garden all very safe. Spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The location is wonderful close to so many different beaches and attractions. Slide and Splash was close which I would highly recommend and the restaurants in the surrounding resorts are great. Carvoeiro is a favourite of mine. If you have a car Vilamoura is also worth a visit just half an hour away. The villa is beautiful and would really suit families, groups of friends or even a couple. I loved it and would go back again without hesitation.

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this wonderful villa. I was travelling alone with my 3 children aged 12,11 and 5.

The villa itself is stunning. The deco is cool and welcoming and it definitely has that little something extra that I had not previously found from other places I'd stayed.

Fantastic facilities, perfect for our needs. Spacious and comfortable.

The children particularly enjoyed the fantastic pool. It is very safe and I felt all of my children could play securely, even develop their swimming! The gardens are very pretty and offer the chance for the children to run and explore in the shade during the hottest hours of the day. The villa is situated in a great location for nearby Amerco de pera which was is a lively family resort with lots of great little places to eat and things for the children to see. On nights we didn't feel like venturing out, we were able to BBQ at the villa or take a short stroll down the road to the Biergarten which offered great food!

We were close to a few great water parks and we ventured to Slide and Splash for a day, I have to admit to being a sceptic, however I was amazed at how clean and safe it was, it was a great day! Other days were spent at one of the many great beaches in the area. A top tip would be to spend a day by the pool and then venture to the beach in time for dinner and watch the sun go down!

The children are still talking about our time there now, we cannot wait to return next year.

Sam and Bruno really have put a lot of effort in to making this a great property, I would highly recommend a visit!
