Property description

Vivenda Vale do Olival is a quietly positioned beautiful luxurious fully A/C´ed pool villa on 4500m ²(1+ acre) private grounds in absolute rural surroundings 1km South-East of Porches (centrally located between Portimao and Albufeira), near the sea and fantastic (bay) beaches. Inside you will find, in addition to the spacious living room and modern kitchen, 4, in various styles decorated, comfortable double bed bedrooms. Upstairs is the master bedroom with A/C, box spring king size bed, private bathroom and two huge balconies located immediately adjacent where, in complete privacy, you can enjoy the sun all day long, sun beds provided. 3 bedrooms with large flat screen televisions and satellite TV (all free to air channels), one of the other bedrooms(20m²!) also with king size box spring, sofa, 42'' flat screen TV with satellite receiver, A/C, XXL-ventilator and HIFI-stereo.
In the modern, fully Bosch equipped A/C´ed kitchen including a large American with ice maker you will find a cozy breakfast corner. The big 25m² A/C´ed living room has a large 42'' flat screen TV with satellite receiver, DVD player, quality HiFi stereo system, leather sofa´s, 2 feateuils and a comfortable dining area, half rounding the living room runs a covered terrace. All airconditioning units from Daikin(best there is!) to cool, heat, dehumidify and use as ventilator, all windows and sliding doors with shutters(so every room can be darkened off) and mosquito screens.
The property is completely fenced in and has 2 times a private driveway, access through electric gates.
Directly in front the kitchen there are 2 covered terraces, one of which is the 20m ² 'Kunuku-house' (Caribbean style with palm-leaf roof) with top quality garden furniture, directly adjoined by another dining area and stylish barbecue area with huge charcoal grill, luxury gas barbecue and bread oven, here one cooks with fabulous rural views! On the other side of the Kunuku house a 8 x 16m grass field with outdoor shower, at the side of the house you have private access to acres and acres of evergreen country side with pine -, almond, fig -, olive and St. Johns bread trees. At the fantastic pool area you will find a 4 x 11m salt water pool in which(as far as we know) the highest private waterfall in the Algarve ends, you may run the water fall yourself at any time! Either to switch on full power and use it as a shower or less powerful and creating 'background music' when water very calmly runs down .... Adjoining a (hot / cold), outside shower in between tons heavy boulders (!!) and pool pump house. Shade sails and a centuries old olive tree provide a shady place on the 50-60m ² pool terrace where sun beds, relaxing island and a hammock ensure a lounge atmosphere. Next to pool terrace is a 4th spacious 25m² bedroom with (shower) bathroom and sauna, you are amongst natural rocks and very warm and caracteristic painted walls.
A fully landscaped garden with typical Algarvian vegetation rounds the villa + pool area. At night presented even more beautiful in the light of dozens and dozens of light points, also pool and waterfall are lit, a small sea of light! We guarantee that you will feel completely comfortable with us, should you however still need something we will instantly try and organize this to your satisfaction.

Car: Recommended

Vivenda Vale do Olival is situated 1 km South of the village of Porches(centrally located between Portimao - Albufeira and famous for its many potteries), directly north of the fantastic bay beaches of 5-star complexes Vila Vita Parc and Vila Lara. The also splendid beach Praia da Senhora da Rocha, with its chappel on the cliffs, is closest to the villa, from here you can start hours and hours of walking, mountain biking or horse riding in undisturbed nature. Within a radius of easy car reach there are several beaches which have been awarded with the blue EU-flag (for clean water, eg. Portugal Top Ten Beach “Praia da Marinha”) as well as prestigious golf courses (Pinta & Gramacho Golf, Vale do Milho Golf, Silves Golf, Salgados).

Armacao de Pera, a coastal town with a beautiful boulevard and a fantastic 5 km long beach(one of the very few in the West-Algarve) at 5 car minutes, specially at the end of boulevard ideal for families with younger children as wide beach. Good size supermarket at 1 mile, big shopping malls, Algarve Shopping just outside Guia(Albufeira) and Aqua in Portimão at 15-20 minutes.
