Updated: 23-Nov-2016
Villa in Olhos D'Agua, Central Algarve, Portugal - Countryside Location, 5 Minute Drive to Beach

This gorgeous villa/townhouse is located In Quinta da Poco, an attractive tree lined urbanization nestled in the countryside, close to orange groves and pretty countryside walks. There are bars and restaurants and a small mini market within walking distance, Olhos D Agua is 2km away, Albufeira 5km and Vilamoura 8km. The stunning beaches of Belharucas, Falesia, Sta Maria, Balaia and Santa Eulalia are all reachable in under 5 minutes by car. The villa is cool and contemporary, the lounge is extremely spacious with patio doors leading on to the pretty south facing private lawned garden. The garden is the perfect place for alfresco dining and BBQs, you may even pick a lemon from the tree to put a slice in your G and T. The private garden makes the villa ideal for families with small children as there is a lockable gate at the end that leads to the lovely large shared pool.

About the Owner

This is our family house, we have 2 small children and fond memories of our 2 toddlers running around the garden. We used to live and work in Portugal, this is the house that we used to live in, so I like to think of it is homely, a loved house, with personal touches like my own oil paintings on the wall rather than just a holiday let. I think our house has a lot of character, we love it..

Mary D. May 2012

Just thought I'd write to you a quick note to say thanks very much for the use of your villa, we had a wonderful holiday and your house was perfect for us and the kids. The enclosed garden meant that we could leave the kids to play safely and they loved the toys and the pool. We'd love to come back.

Dan and family July2010

Just wanted to say thanks for letting us your lovely house in Portugal last week. We all had a great time and enjoyed the house, pool and garden very much. The boys loved having the pool to themselves and going on lizard hunts after dark. We hope to come again one day.

Peaceful large villa - with friendly bars nearby

  • 5 of 5

This villa is spacious, clean and well maintained. It is in a very peaceful area, but with lovely nearby beaches and good bus links to Faro and Albufeira. Nearby bars have good food and friendly English speaking staff. The shared pool is lovely - only me in it for the fortnight we stayed in September 2016!. Highly recommend this villa to all. Owners are helpful and friendly and sent clear instructions to obtain access. Nearest town is Alhoes De Aqua - fairly quiet with lovely beach - Albufeira for nightlife if you want it. Lovely base for exploring and a lovely garden for relaxing and sunbathing. Would definitely return. Thanks for a lovely stay. Jan and Phil

Great Family get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time visiting this villa, I came once with the girls in 2014 and returned with the family this year.

It really is a comfy home from home with everything you need, I highly recommend it and will definitely be returning myself.

I loved that you could go to the hustle and bustle of Olas de Agua and Albuerfiera then return to the peacefulness of the villa.

The pool is lovely and never crowded and the people in the restaurants down the road were very welcoming.

For anyone looking for a mix of lively entertainment and the chill factor this is the place to stay :)

5th July 2014

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in this very lovely and private villa...a beautiful atmosphere and sense of 'being at home'. The property is airy and very spacious and we spent every evening sitting in the private garden , cooking bbq's and sipping on gin and tonics ....with a slice of lemon picked from the tree in the garden. The villa was comfortable and well equipped and only a short drive from Albeferia.. We used the hotel nearby for free wi-fi and and a drink at the bar (they had a piano player the night we were there) There is a welcoming local bar a 10/15 walk away ....we had a fabulous time and felt comfortable and at home in this lovely villa.

Lemon tree review

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, spacious and clean. Everything we needed and more , pool was lovely and quiet and only a few steps away from villa. Only downside was mattresses were bit to hard for our liking.

The location was perfect , lovely walk to beaches and short taxi rides to albufeira . Great holiday and great information from the owner we tried out most of the recommended places and loved them. Met Wendy who lives locally she also was very helpful and recommended a good restaurant in old town. Perfect holiday

From the Owner

We bought the house in 2007 after living and working for a british tour operator on the Algarve for many years. I love the tranquility of its location, yet close by to a great selection of restaurants in Olhos D agua, Acoteias and Falesia. We love Portuguese food and there are some great eaters nearby. It is only 35 mins from the airport and 5 minute drive to the most beautiful beaches on the Algarve.

From the Owner

Our lovely English friends that live in one of the villas on the complex, they are great fun, very friendly. Locally grown oranges nearby. I also love the smell of the Orange and Lemon blossoms in the spring. I absolutely adore the garden, it has sunny areas, shady areas, space to lay out and relax. The smell of the flowers and blossoms, the sound of the crickets, the ideal place to relax. It is a very private and secluded garden for a townhouse, a real bonus.
