Almancil villa description

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
This detached Villa is located at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in Quinta das Salinas, between the luxury resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, in central Algarve.

The first-row Villa backs straight onto the Ria Formosa National Park - a privilege enjoyed by only a few houses in the area, which will make your stay a truly unique experience. A 5-10 minute walk through pinewood trails takes you to nearby beaches and the ocean. The natural Ria Formosa and pinewood surroundings can be enjoyed from the South facing living room, from the garden encircling the private pool and BBQ area, or from the roof terrace.

Europe's finest golf courses of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are just a 5 minute drive away, as are a host of activities such as horse riding, tennis, watersports, go karting, cinema, shopping, bars, restaurants and water parks to name a few. See more details in the location description.

THE VILLA

This single storey detached villa with a private large heated pool and roof terrace is ideal for a family or group of friends wanting to get away from it all without being isolated.

The villa offers an open-plan living and dining area combining a fully equipped kitchen and lounge featuring a fireplace, TV, DVD and wireless internet. Sliding doors provide access to the private garden and pool terrace, bringing the outside in.

The outside terrace offers the ideal space for relaxed group or family leisure, with a large ceramic-tiled pool (33x16 feet, or 10x5 meters), a large sun shade, sun loungers, a wooden dining table, and a BBQ. There is furthermore an outdoor shower for your convenience after using the pool.

Bedroom one is a large double with fitted wardrobes, sliding doors to the outside terrace area, and an en suite bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms (one double, one twin) with fitted wardrobes, sharing a bathroom.

None of the bedrooms have a shared wall, which makes this villa a great option for two families sharing and/or holidays with children.

Highchair and cot can be supplied on request.

An inbuilt safe for your valuables as well as a modern video alarm system are installed.

The villa is air-conditioned throughout. The use of the units is available to guests who require these extra facilities, but carries an extra cost of 80UKP / 100 Euros per week during the summer months of June, July, August and September.

Pool heating is optional and is charged extra.

                      RIA FORMOSA

                      The location right on the border of the Ria Formosa nationalpark makes this the ideal location for visitors who enjoy nature walking and bird watching. The Ria Formosa features beautiful lagoons and sand dunes where nature lovers will be able to watch flamingos, storks and other sea birds or simply enjoy the surroundings by exploring.

                      RESTAURANTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

                      The nearby Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo plaza has a host of upmarket boutiques, restaurants and bars. Within 10 minutes drive of the property you will find over 40 restaurants catering to every taste and budget. There are three Michelin star restaurants within The Golden Triangle (http://portugalconfidential.com/2012/11/2013-michelin-star-restaurants-in-portugal/).

                      In the summer months there are frequent live music events and children's entertainment on the plazas.

                      BEACHES

                      During the summer season there are lifeguards on safety patrol from early in the morning until sunset on all beaches that provide restaurant / toilet facilities. The beach concessions generally offer all the water sports facilities you would want including banana boats, canoes, pedalo’s, surf boards, kayaks, para sailing, water skiing, jet skis and doughnut water rides.

                      GOLF

                      Quinta do Lago is one of the Algarve's largest golf destinations and its courses are rated among Europe's top 25. The resort has hosted eight Portuguese Opens and continues to be the venue for national and international tournaments.

                      It has hosted the Portuguese Open Championship eight times in addition to hundreds of national and international prestigious tournaments.

                      The fairways are wide and flanked at reasonable distance by the pines, heather, broom and beautiful wild flowering shrubs with several lakes in the play, providing a test to players of all ability levels. Enjoy a few rounds in the glorious Portuguese climate, with almond trees, citrus groves and fragrant breezes from the ocean adding to the atmosphere.

                      All courses have first class driving ranges, a golf academy, putting greens, pro-shops and clubhouses with large and informal terraces - the perfect setting to relax with friends, have a well earned drink or a light meal after a challenging round.

                      CHILDREN

                      Apart from the villa's pool, the walkable distance to the beach makes for a more relaxed holiday. No more search for parking and backseat tantrums.

                      Inside Vale de Lobo resort the Kangaroo Club is a first class kids club which opens late and allows mom & dad to have a relaxed dinner in a nearby restaurant, a massage on the beach or simply a few hours of reading time.

                      The club is part of the Dona Filipa luxury five star hotel but open to outsiders. You can decide on group activities or even individual babysitting if your kids are very young. See here for more details: http://www.donafilipahotel.com/kids-club

                      An inexpensive mini-golf course right next to the kids club provides fun for the whole family.

                      Often the plaza has children's entertainment at night to keep the kids happy during long dinners by the seaside.
