More villas with private pools for 2018 from Vintage Travel

With peak season dates filling fast, Vintage Travel – specialists in villas with private pools – has added more new properties to its portfolio with excellent July and August availability.

On the unspoilt eastern Algarve there is Casa Laguna, a gorgeous, quirky property full of character and ideal for those wanting more than a standard villa.  It sleeps eight in four bedrooms and is situated in a small hamlet near the fishing town of Fuzeta.  The interior showcases an eclectic and stylish mix of decor, antique furniture, cane ceilings and stone walls, with unconventional features including the original stone sink converted into an ice cooler and an open air shower created from a bucket.

It is set in extensive grounds of palms and olives, with a large 13 metre private swimming pool, assorted open and covered terraces and two outside summer kitchens – one with a covered dining area and a pizza oven, the other with a built-in barbeque, a dishwasher and a wine cooler.  Seven nights in 2018 start at £950, rising to £2598 in peak season.

On a smaller scale and in Umbria, is La Casetta, a pretty, traditional cottage sleeping four in two bedrooms, its small size being rare in this part of the world.  Its interior is spacious and full of atmosphere with beamed ceilings, antiques and tiled floors and each bedroom has its own bathroom facilities.

In its grounds of lawn and olive trees, there is a private swimming pool, dining terraces and a barbeque.  Its location ensures easy access to a variety of places – Orvieto, Viterbo, Amelia and Terni amongst others – and an hour’s train journey from nearby Attigliano leads to the city of Rome.  Seven nights in 2018 start at £560, increasing to £1780 in peak season.

Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.
