About Paul Harrison

We bought the holiday home 3 years ago as a project to become a holiday retreat with the idea of renting it whilst we were in the UK. It has been recently refurbished and project managed by myself as I have managed and built property all my life in the UK and currently manage and let property back in the UK so understand the requirements for renting and the standards that need to be met. It is our intention to continue to use the house as our holiday home as well as renting it out so is very much with this in mind how we have furnished and set out the accommodation to suit.

Paul Harrison purchased this villa in 2010

Why Paul Harrison chose São Brás de Alportel

Having spent several years renovating and adding new features to the property over the last 3 years it has also been a fantastic place to holiday with friends, family etc. The area is away from the madding crowds of the more well known resorts. It is peaceful and traditional Algarvian countryside. However your never far by car to many busier locations as there are good road links in all directions.

What makes this villa unique

20 mins from the airport is a great bonus after the stress of travel. Having a pool allows you the opportunity to not have to leave the property and go to the beach every day. The main asset is the views from the terraces south easterly. This really is a magical position. It has many terraces with which to escape to and with a large plot you have an amazing sense of space. It is also secure with electric gates and high walls. The property is very private yet only 5 mins drive to the local town with all it's offerings.

The place has everything...

  • 4 of 5

The three generations of our family loved our two weeks' stay in this beautiful and comfortable villa during the summer holidays. We have stayed twice and would certainly like to stay here again. Thanks to Paul's attention to details, the place ticked all the boxes for us and we really liked: the choices of comfortable sitting areas, the beautiful sea view and the breathtaking sunset around the poolside. Our party ranges from age 11 to 76, and we all loved it. Away from the villa we explored and loved the many nearby attractions São Bras has to offer too. Despite the fantastic barbecue facilities the villa has to offer, the local restaurants are well worth a few visits.

The most amazing hideaway.......

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 fantastic weeks there and having driven from the UK it was a fantastic location to unwind. With wonderful views all round of Tavira and Fusetta to the south and the sea beyond. Up in the hills to the east of Sao Bras de alportel (Only 3-5 mins away by car) The house is traditionally layed out with many terraces with really comfy sofas and chairs so you can be in the sun throughout the day or choose to sit and read a book in the shade.

The pool is great and very safe for the children. Plenty of parking for cars (which you will need) and is suited to larger parties. Perfect location as its quiet and out of the way of the major touristy areas yet only 20 mins drive to the coast. 30 mins to Faro (Taxi fare was 30 euros from the house to the airport)

Will definately recommend this to anyone and will be booking again in 2014 !!!

Great Villa, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Paul for a great place to stay. My family and I really enjoyed our holiday. The weather was good enough to spend lots of time in the pool and my teenage daughter and her friend loved having the space away from us in the upstairs bedroom, they even made use of the kitchen up there!! I must admit we did have to gatecrash a few times and spend some time admiring the beautiful views from their terrace. The villa is in a great location, enjoying some peace and quiet but not far from many great restaurants. We will definitely be coming back!!
