Vale do Lobo & Quinta do Lago, Algarve, Portugal
This perfectly private five-bedroom haven is just 4km from the golden sands of Quinta do Lago beach. Sleek, chic and elegantly proud, there are manicured gardens (complete with their very own private putting green) for those most active, while a huge lounger-adorned swimming pool caters to all the sun-loving guests. Offering the ultimate in daytime relaxation, there are multiple terraced areas dotted around the property – a shaded pergola includes its own indulgent day bed, while a covered lounge brings the contemporary inside feels, outdoors. Meals can be enjoyed al fresco thanks to a large covered dining table and barbecue area, while a poolside bar, complete with its very own bar stools, allows you to lap up the luxury, resort-style.
The villa itself is set over three floors, and is refreshingly modern in style. All of the living areas are spacious and open plan, and have huge windows that bathe each and every room in light. The living room can be found on the ground floor, and is a fully flop-inducing space with a huge U-shaped sofa assortment. There’s a state-of-the-art kitchen, with all the necessary mod-cons for home-cooked villa meals, and a large dining room which opens out to the adjacent outdoor dining and kitchen area. For the best views in the house, choose the spacious king-size suite on the villa’s first floor. There’s a large dressing room and a contemporary en suite bathroom, plus the luxury of a private covered terrace overlooking the pool area. A further four bedrooms can be found on the ground and lower ground floor levels, too. An extra treat includes a home cinema and games room on the lower ground floor of the villa. There’s a full-sized pool table and cosy sofa seating, and even a bar area (with a wine chiller) for the best in villa indulgences.
Set at the edge of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Logoare a golfer’s paradise, with five championship golf courses in the area. Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, with endless stretches of golden sand, while away from the beach or the golf course you’ll find a wide variety of restaurants, bars and nightclubs to keep you entertained. For a change of pace, lively Albufeira is just a short drive away, while nearby Faro offers a taste of the real Portugal in the lanes of the old town.
