About this listing

Light, airy and beautifully designed. This architect designed house is a jewel in the countryside and would suit families and travellers seeking soul rejuvenating tranquillity.

The space

This is a beautifully stylish, architect-designed home with a double volume space in the living area and lots of windows casting views out over the surrounding countryside. The house is surrounded by luscious green lawns, a welcome sight on hot summer days. Spend time eating al fresco under a covered patio or pop across the road to the neighbouring citrus farm and have a dip in the swimming pool. There is also an outdoor barbecue to enjoy. Internet access for emails is provided by a hot spot up to 4G. Professional internet use, movie streaming etc. requires an additional Vodafone payment.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entire property which will be solely for their use. This includes all outside areas. The swimming pool across the road (available from 10am to 9pm daily) is also available for your use. Please note that children always need to be supervised by an adult when using the pool.

Location: beautiful pocket of tranquility while you can get to everything the algarve has to offer in a heartbeat. Accomodation: great little villa designed for both form and function. Very practical, spacious and nice views of the surroundings. Pool is right across the street next to a lemon and orange orchard. Inventory is excellent everything you might need and that goes for the kitchen especially. Host: Natalie is both friendly and helpful, surprising us by getting a high chair for the baby we didnt ask for. Overall: great stay, good value, definetely recommended.

Bon accueil, bons conseils pour la vie sur place et pour un bon séjour. Angelika parle très bien Français aussi, c'est encore plus facile pour les francophones. La maison est récente et très bien équipée. Nous avons passé un super séjour.

Maison très agréable, dans un endroit paisible, très bien équipée . A deux pas de Lagos, près de merveilleuses plages. Je conseille cette maison pour un séjour a la campagne mais a proximité de toutes les commodités.

Einer meiner schönsten Urlaube. Das Haus und die nähere Umgebung laden zum entspannen ein, die Strände sind nicht weit weg, alles war top in Schuss und besser ausgestattet als ich es mir hätte erträumen können. Der Pool war ebenfalls sehr gut falls man mal keine Lust hatte auf Meer oder danach um sich noch mal abzukühlen. Natalie ist eine tolle Gastgeberin und hatte auf jede Frage eine Antwort. Alles in allem: perfekt!

Es war sehr freundlich, dass bereits bei der Ankunft Obst und Wein in reicher Auswahl zur Verfügung standen. Das Haus war top gepflegt, sehr sauber und luxuriös ausgestattet. Der grüne Garten war wohltuend und die Umgebung ruhig (abgesehen von der entfernten Autobahnbrücke). Natalie war sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Insgesamt waren wir mit unserem Aufenthalt sehr zufrieden und würden gerne wieder kommen!

Excellente expérience chez Natalie. La maison est grande, fonctionnelle, avec deux terrasses. La piscine est juste à côté, grande et propre. Lagos est à 10 minutes en voiture. Natalie est une hôte extraordinaire. Elle nous a réservé un restaurant très en demande, nous a conseillés sur beaucoup de choses, répondait très vite quand on lui écrivait. Elle nous a même envoyé par la poste un souvenir oublié dans le bus Lagos-Lisbonne! Je recommande donc de passer un séjour chez Natalie! J'y retournerais avec grand plaisir :)

Travel is a big part of my life. In 2008 I decided to sell my flat in London, pack up all my things and take off to travel around the world for a year. It was the best thing I could have ever done. It changed my life. Since then, I have settled in the Algarve, Portugal on our beautiful family estate - a 6 hectare orgainc citrus farm on the best sunshine coast in Europe!

I started up a business with my family on our farm restoring 3 beautiful apartments that we now rent out to wonderful people like you. We put the emphasis on eco friendly - all our water is solar heated and we do not use fertilzers or chemicals on our trees. We let nature take it's rightful course.

Our hosting style is very relaxed and we hope our guests will take with them a calm and relaxing memory of our tranquil, peaceful setting.

In addition to renting out our apartments, I take guests on tours to stunning locations such as the beautiful West coast beaches, the majestic Monchique mountains, local vineyards and champagne sunsets in Sagres, Europes most Southern tip. I'm happy to arrange personalised tours too, just ask!
