Set in the Serra de Monchique hills, Villa Casa Estrelicia is surrounded by pine, eucalyptus and cork trees. And the views seem to go on forever – on a clear day even the coast can be glimpsed. There’s no shortage of quiet spots to relax at this villa. The dining terrace extends right round the side of the house, with steps leading down to the pool.
The swimming pool at Villa Casa Estrelicia is sunk into a tiled terrace stocked with loungers and parasols. In front of the pool, the hillside dips down into sweeping views of the countryside.
A wood-burning stove set into a stone fireplace gives a homely feel to the open-plan dining and living area, a spacious area with comfy sofas. And two sets of French windows lead onto the lovely dining terrace. The kitchenette at Villa Casa Estrelicia serves up a good-sized cooker, microwave and fridge-freezer. Meanwhile, a barbecue weighs anchor outside.
