Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Luxurious 3 Bed 3 Ensuite Bath Villa,Under floor heating,Heated private pool,Close to town Centre 500m walk to restaurants,Kamado Joe BBQ

Casa Boa Sorte is a spacious and beautiful air-conditioned villa nestling in the tranquil hillside of Cerro da Mesquita. The villa has recently undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment for the enjoyment and comfort of our guests. All bedrooms are now ensuite and furniture and furnishings are of a very high standard. Specification includes Super King Vi-Spring mattresses, solid walnut low-end sleigh bed, rosewood and metal bedsteads and under floor heating to all bathrooms. Outside the villa now benefits from a large Kamado Joe BBQ, in addition to the traditional Portuguese BBQ, and rattan outdoor furniture. Bicycles are included in the price for 1 week maximum 6 available for bookings June - September 2017.

The new pool cover ensures that the large roman ended heated salt (slight) water pool maintains the perfect temperature between use. The villa affords total privacy making it an ideal place to spend a family holiday, honeymoon or romantic break and enjoys spectacular uninterrupted and panoramic views across the valley with views out to the sea. Easily accessed from the main road and situated on a made up and lit private lane with off road parking for two cars, Casa Boa Sorte is just a few mins drive or bike ride from the delightful unspoilt town of Sao Bras de Alportel, once the cork capital of Portugal with its restaurants and all the facilities you'd expect to find in a small town including a choice of supermarkets including an Intermarche. Pavement cafe's are a plenty for times when you just want to enjoy a mouth watering cake and coffee and do a bit of people watching. Sao Bras is a favoured destination of some very well known celebrities who have come to relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere, so you never know who you might be sitting next to, as you widen your eyes and whisper "is that who I think it is" and the answer we can tell you is probably yes. But everyone respects their privacy. Leaving Sao Bras an easy 20 minute drive will take you to Loule, the coast and beaches, golf courses and Faro airport. Tavira and the Spanish border town Ayamonte are also within easy reach and Lisbon is a 2hr drive. With its unique microclimate and sheltered positon, Sao Bras is one of the Algarve's best kept secrets and the location couldn't be more ideal for exploring the best the region and the Algarve has to offer.

About the Owner

Me and my wife are originally from London and like most people living amid the hustle and bustle of busy cities, longed to spend days in more tranquil surroundings. We first holidayed in the Algarve some twenty years ago and it quickly became a favourite place above all other European destinations.

Exceptional property, stunning views, great pool

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 people staying in Casa Boa Sorte for 2 weeks. We can't express well enough how happy we all were in the villa. The owners have certainly put a lot of effort, care, thought and love in the villa and we could feel it in every corner. The pool is a real gem. We couldn’t get out of it during those hot days.

The furnished terrace is the place to be for breakfast and dinner. But be careful! It will make you drink a lot of G&Ts, admiring the views and the sunny sky. The 3 bedrooms with an ensuite each were furnished with taste and great quality.

The owners really cared for us providing all we needed from directions to the property to answering promptly to any inquiry we had.

Stunning and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Villa Boa Sorte is a wonderful villa, situated up a quiet lane. There are lovely views across the valley towards the sea. The owners Michael and Donna were extremely helpful - helping our holiday go like clockwork! Nothing was a problem to them. The Villa is a credit to them...extremely clean and beautifully decorated. Impressively equipped also. The pool area is ideal and two of the bedrooms open straight out onto it. There are a few good restaurants and a quality supermarket nearby...very handy! I travelled with three friends and we had a brilliant holiday... totally chilled. We cant recommend it enough and certainly wouldn't hesitate in returning. PERFECT...thank you to Michael and Donna (once again) - Angie

Quiet, safe, stunning views, great location.

  • 5 of 5

It's a recently fully refurbished villa with air conditioning and underfloor heating. High standard furniture. High spec kitchen. Bedrooms very comfortable. Lovely bathrooms. South facing pool with wide tiled terrace. The location is very good. Just a couple miles from downtown of Sao Brás it's though a quiet area overlooking the fields with the sea in between the hills. São Brás is a little town with all the amenities and very central. Great restaurants! Just 30 minutes from the coastline and majors golf courses.

Firmly recommend!!!

Facilities

From the Owner

The villa is truly a home from home.The location is peaceful with breathtaking views over the valleys, yet the town centre is just a couple of minutes down the road. We love eating alfresco on the upper terrace where there is a traditional Portuguese barbecue (or our fantastic Kamado Joe) and then relax with a glass of something chilled under the pergola beside the lemon and orange trees in the garden or then again you could go for a bike ride. Bicycles are included in the price for 1 week maximum 6 available for bookings June - September 2017.(Any additional see price guide).
