Luis Dos Frangos
Roman Villa of Milreu

From the Owner

It is a quiet place, where we enjoy excellent privacy, with beautiful views from the sea and the mountains. It is a peaceful and calm location but very easy to get everywhere. We get across the Algarve relatively quickly. The evenings are charming especially because of breathtaking view of Faro and we can also enjoy stunning sunsets. There is a neighboring house some 200m away, a snack-bar and a mini market in the nearest village 1.5km from the villa. Restaurants just minutes away and a day out at the beach can be enjoyed at the lovely long uncrowded white sandy beach of Fuzeta, a manageable 11kms distant. A little closer, the port town of Olhão has some fabulous fish restaurants and has a ferry service to superb beaches on the delightful off-shore islands.

From the Owner

Casa S. Miguel is escapism in a big way! It nestles atop one of the Algarve's highest points with spectacular views sweeping southwards to the ocean in the south and across the valley to the hills which flank the Algarve's northern limits. The villa is set in its own grounds, with sand and rock gardens falling away beneath the swimming pool, and flanked by a hillside clad with olive trees.
