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.

More villas with private pools in Portugal…

Villa specialist, Vintage Travel, has expanded its choice of properties with private pools in Portugal with, for example, Quinta de Sao Sebastiao, making its debut.

This beautifully restored stone quinta – sleeping 10 in five en suite bedrooms – is set in spacious grounds in the hamlet of Facha and has been carefully modernised to provide a winning combination of historic character and contemporary design.

On the upper floor the original stone seats sit either side of traditionally painted windows, in the kitchen stone ovens have been retained and sit alongside sparkling red units and the wine cellar has been furnished with soft seating to create a snug.

In the large gardens, there is a private swimming pool, open and covered terraces, a variety of fruit trees such as fig, olive and orange, and a pond. A stroll of 600 metres leads to the local cafe/shop and a drive of seven kms takes guests to the riverside town of Ponte de Lima. A seven-night holiday in May is priced at £1495, rising to £2395 in peak season.

Also on offer for the first time in 2016 is Casa do Picasso, a beautifully preserved country cottage – with stone walls, beams and wooden floors – in the hamlet of Aspra, just over two kms from the fishing village of Vila Praia de Ancora, with its excellent fish restaurants and sandy beach.

The property, which sleeps six in three bedrooms (one en suite), is set in enclosed gardens of lawns, covered and open terraces and has a private swimming pool and a garden room with a selection of children’s toys. A week in May costs from £595, increasing to £1595 in peak season.

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