The pool The Vila Garden

Villa dos Arcos (sleeps 4) and Casita do Pintor (sleeps 2) 
West Algarve (Conservation Area)

This charming and unusual property will suit any combination of guests from 2 to 6. A traditional village house, carefully restored, with great character, beautiful gardens and commanding dramatic views. 
Visitors are thus able to enjoy the unique combination of authentic village life, together with the comforts of a modern villa and pool normally found only in the development areas which have destroyed so much of the Algarve.  It offers that rare discovery - the best of both worlds.

The ancient village is in the conservation area, half a mile from completely unspoilt coastline, at the western end of the Algarve near Cape St Vincent. It is one hour's drive from Faro airport. For location map click here.

The Villa has a cottage in its grounds (Casita do Pintor) which is available as an option ; two or more families (or generations) wishing to go on holiday together but wanting a measure of independence may favour this arrangement.

The house is attractively furnished in traditional Portuguese style and includes bed linen, towels, and complimentary welcome pack with selection of food and wine. An English speaking baby sitter is available. To read comments by previous visitors click here.
