New: Impressive Portuguese villa with private pool and Atlantic views…

A handsome villa close to the Portuguese country town of Sao Bras de Alportel – and with commanding views over olive and citrus groves to the Atlantic beyond – is just one of the latest discoveries from villa specialist, Vintage Travel.

Belo Horizonte
– sleeping six in three bedrooms (one en suite) – has style on a grand scale with Portuguese rose marble flooring throughout, an open-plan living/dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows leading onto the lower terrace and an impressive newly-fitted kitchen.  Each bedroom enjoys access to an upper terrace with its spectacular views.

A private walled garden encircles the house, home to a distinctive ‘J’ shaped private swimming pool, terracotta tiled terraces and paths of local stone leading through palms, herbaceous borders and cacti.

Locally there are several excellent restaurants serving traditional dishes and nearby is Sao Bras de Alport (six kms) and the bustling market place at Loulé (11 kms). Magnificent dune-backed beaches can be found at Quinta do Lago (22 kms).

As an example of price, a seven-night holiday in June starts at £1206, increasing to £1888 in peak season.

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

Splendid isolation in Portugal…villa with private pool set in 10 acres…

New for 2018 from villa specialist, Vintage Travel, is Quinta dos Castanheiros, a magnificent villa in the Minho set in 10 acres of private woodland and carefully converted from a typical farm cottage into a beautifully crafted property sleeping 10 in five en suite bedrooms.

The villa is situated just outside the hamlet of Rebordoes – three kms from the historic riverside town of Ponte de Lima – and is reached by a private driveway through chestnut trees.

The conversion took three years to complete and its considerable extension has created an elegant and spacious home with two sitting rooms – with carved wooden ceilings – a superb dining room, a beautifully equipped kitchen and a games room.

It is an idyllic and wonderfully private retreat and in the grounds – bordered by a stream – there is a large, private swimming pool, a poolside cloakroom and shower room, open terraces and covered verandas and a built-in barbeque.

Ponte de Lima is one of the prettiest towns in the region and home to a good selection of shops and restaurants. For lovers of the coast, endless stretches of sandy dune-backed beaches are within a 30-minute drive.

A seven-night holiday in 2018 starts at £1998, increasing to £2950 in peak season.

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