Monte das Estrelas is a luxury villa of understated elegance, sitting comfortably in its private grounds as a beautiful Algarvian style house, yet with a contemporary interior of high ceilings, open spaces and large expanses of glass offering breath-taking views across the countryside and out to the ocean.
Located in the hills between Lagos and Portimão, 45 mins from Faro Airport, 15 mins from great beaches and famous golf courses, the very special property affords absolute privacy. The name of the villa, which means 'Hill of the Stars' is well justified, as the night sky here is out of this world.
The living space is all open plan - the fully equipped kitchen flows well to the dining area to the sitting area as well as a TV area. The sliding doors to the master bedroom enhance the open, loft-like feeling of the architecture.
Ceiling fans, inspired by owners' years of residence in the tropics, provide a gentle cooling flow of air on warmer days - more pleasant than air conditioning. Persian carpets of quality, fine art, library, DVDs, and high speed internet, all help to complete the experience.
The house offers luxury accommodation for up to six - three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is air-conditioned though not required as the hilltop position assures that the house enjoys a warm breeze on most summer days, yet the south-facing terraces are designed to give maximum protection from wind.
The pool is equipped with an electric cover which, together with the solar heating, ecologically keeps the pool temperature around 28-30°C in Summer. The 5m x 10m pool is run with a salt water system, the same used by nearly all five star hotels in the world. As a result the pool water is free of chlorine, and the Roman steps at the end afford easy and safe entry.
