Lovely country villa with pretty views between São Brás and Tavira
Property type: Villa
Bore hole water
Private swimming Pool
This bungalow style villa is nestling on a slope in a beautiful valley beside the river, in a secluded location of a small hamlet yet with some international neighbours around. Two of the best Algarve beaches are a short distance away as are golf courses, bowling greens and tennis courts. A very good restaurant is on the outskirts of the hamlet and the typical Village of Santa Catarina with shops, a bank and a pharmacy is only a few minutes away.
The villa is accessed by an unmade country road for 1.5 km and entering the remote controlled gates one is immediately taken by the pretty setting. A cobblestone driveway leads to the courtyard in front of the house with a water feature to the right and the blue water of the swimming pool shimmers through the lush gardens to the left. Double front doors lead to a balustraded gallery with a few steps down into the large open plan designed lounge and dining room which has a feature vaulted hardwood timber ceiling. Large patio doors open to the east terraces and swimming pool and to the south facing terraces and magnificent surrounding hill views. The spacious kitchen is excellently equipped with a large breakfast/dining bar and direct access to the terrace in front of the pool, an ideal spot for dining ‘al fresco’. One wing of the property hosts the four bedrooms of which the master suite and a guest bedroom have direct access to the covered, south facing terrace to appreciate the beautiful views first thing in the morning.
There is about 4.000 sqm of fully landscaped garden with plenty of indigenous plants and fruit trees with a network of natural stone pathways which also leads down to the bank of the small river that has water in the rainy season.
