Contemporary living in Portugal with villa specialist, Vintage Travel

Vintage Travel has expanded its portfolio of properties with private pools in Portugal for 2019 with additions including Casa Cristelo, a strikingly up-to-date villa offering contemporary living and scenic surroundings in the village of Cristelo.

The property, designed by the architect owners, sleeps four in two bedrooms and is full of innovative design techniques making it a home which is both elegant and practical in equal measures.  It has an open-plan living space from where patio doors lead to a smart covered terrace making it a natural extension to the living room.  In its enclosed grounds of lawns there is a private swimming pool and further terraces.

The village shop is just 500 metres from the house and a short drive leads to the sweeping beach and restaurants of Moledo.  A seven-night holiday in 2019 starts at £530, rising to £1320 in peak season.

Also making its debut for 2019 is Casa Mocho, set in extensive grounds, with an impressively large swimming pool, a poolside shower and a covered dining/seating area. It sleeps six in three bedrooms (two en suite) and local stone and timbers, terracotta tiling and cane beamed ceilings contrast well with a contemporary fitted kitchen and well-appointed living spaces.

Nearby, the pretty white washed village of Estoi (four kms) and the sleepy market town of Sao Bras de Alportel (six kms) both offer a choice of several excellent restaurants.  For beach lovers, a short trip to Fuzeta (16 kms) leads to dune-backed beaches and simple quayside restaurants specialising in seafood.  Seven nights in 2019 start at £1040, increasing to £2520 in peak season.

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