2 Bedroom Villa With Air Conditioning, Superb Roof Terrace With Sea View

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Oct-2016
Villa in Quinta da Saudade, Nr. Vale de Parra, Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes To The Beach By Car, Close To All The Amenities You Would Expect

The villa is situated on the charming Quinta da Saudade. There are 2 pools on site and even in the height of the season you don't have to fight for your sunbed! There are Tennis Courts, Riding Stables and the restaurant offers a great home cooked selection of food, at very reasonable prices. The pool bar is also a great meeting place for lunch. We have been visiting the area for many years and it's the kind of place people often return to time and time again. The villa has 2 twin bedrooms, 1 en suite, 1 family bathroom, kitchen, lounge & dining area. There is a maid service 3 days a week and the office is manned 6 days a week to offer advise and assistance if required. Having retained the balcony area off the lounge, you have plenty of choices to sit, relax and dine. The roof terrace is superb for it's seclusion, sea views, dining area, comfortable furnishings, barbecue and spaciousness.

About the Owner

Steve & I live in North West London, with our two daughters, two Boxer dogs and cat. Steve is self employed in the Film Industry and I work in a large hotel west of Heathrow. Over the years I've had my own training & development business, specializing in coaching & developing Sales people in the hotel industry and I also ran a deli/coffee shop in the local High Street too. We don't get much free time which is why we love to visit the Quinta when we can. I enjoy the outdoors so the walks in the area are great for me and Steve is usually more than happy to just sit and enjoy a cool beer on the balcony, most afternoons. He gets his exercise from the occasional round of golf there too if he can!

We've tried hard to create a 'home from home' for you however welcome suggestions for improvements at all times. There is a guest book for comments and we always enjoy reading these when we visit.

"Villa 3A offers one of the best views on the Quinta. Delightful place, chilled as soon as we got there. Excellent facilities, very tastefully furnished and we will be back! Thank you Jo & Steve" - from the Banks family - July 2009

Super relaxing

  • 5 of 5

First of all Jo the owner has been amazing, on the end of the phone when needed and so helpful. Villa 3a is everything you could need, comfortable, well equipped, clean and convenient to beaches restaurants, shops. The pools are idea, a large child friendly pool, plus a stunning pool for relaxing around. The on site restaurant was excellent, beautifully fresh food and a two minute walk back to villa. The high light for me was an evenings ride on the beach, as Quinta da Saudade have amazing stable facilities, we loved watching the horses come back from a hack In the evening. We would love to return to Villa 3A and wish we had brought the children here years ago.

Perfect spot for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Went here for the 1st week of sept 13. Two kids 2 and 4mths. Perfect for a young family.

Apartment was clean, lots of simple facilities (tv, play station DVDs etc, well laid out kitchen with ample cooking equipment. Two good bathrooms and two good bedrooms. Roof terrace is amazing, reasonably safe for little ones, but supervision anyways needed.

The Quinta is a somewhat dated but very well run mini-resort. A few too many steps for a 2yo, but it adds to the discretion and charm of this type of "resort" there a 2 pools and a baby pool, shared among 20 or so villas, but they were always quiet. The place is mostly owner occupied and as such is well maintained and run, all the guests that we met were expats, mostly owners, some even 3rd generation!! Lovely people. Mixture of ages, although in sept, only very young children.

The location is car only. It's about 5 min drive from all facilities, fab beaches, restaurants, shops, but you need a car. 40mins from faro, near water parks, zoo marine, old town albuferia. Perfect.

Great for retirees, very young kids, anyone who wants quiet, pleasant, slow pace of life, within a safe well maintained facility. If you want late bars, singles etc... This is not for you!

Location

From the Owner

As a family we have been visiting this part of the Algarve for over 20 years. We've had some lovely family holidays at the Quinta and met some long lasting friends as a result. When we were looking to buy in the area we viewed several different properties, however nothing compared to the uniqueness of the Quinta. It ticked all the boxes for us; Facilities on site so we can all enjoy being served, no getting up at the crack of dawn to be sure you have a sunbed, no over crowded swimming pools and best of all being central to everywhere! After a long career in hospitality, customer satisfaction is hugely important to me and I hope if you choose to stay at Casa Bela Vista, you'll understand why we wanted to buy it.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

There are some beautiful walks around the Quinta and there is a wetlands nature reserve opposite. Here you will find a wealth of bird and plant life, not often found in other parts of Europe. There are Flamengo's, Purple Heron, Little Bittern, Alpine Swift, Bee Eater, Red Necked Night Jar, Azure Winged Magpie and many other visitors to the region.

Coast/Beach:

The Algarve is rightly famous for it's beaches and just over a mile from The Quinta are two of the most fabulous stretches of sand in the area. Reached by foot or, more usually, by a 10 minute car ride, the beaches are almost never crowded and there are a number of excellent beach bars which serve lunch and dinner.

Travel:

The Quinta da Saudade lies in a valley approximately 5 miles West of Albufeira and just a 40 minute drive from the airport at Faro. Hiring a car is recommended.

Distances:

Apart from Albufeira the closest towns are Armacao de Pera to the West, and Guia to the North, both a mere 3 miles away. Being central there are many beautiful places to visit just a short drive away.

Further Details:

There is a great selection of supermarkets in the area and Algarve Shopping offers a choice of branded stores including Zara, Zara home, a Cinema complex and fast food outlets. The nearest Cash Point is through the village of Vale De Parra, outside the supermarket on the left hand side. Approximately 2 miles away.

If you're planning to go away as part of a larger group, perhaps with other Golfers, friends or family, we are directly next door to property P9595. Combined, our villa's can sleep up to 10 adults & 2 infants. Please check both listings, and subject to availability enquire with either owner as to any deals to be had by booking both, especially out of high season. You have your own space yet you can all be together too. A great idea for Christmas & New Year!
