This minimalist hideaway close to Santa Barbara de Nexe in the Algarve is set at the end of a road lined with gnarled olive, almond and cork trees, and includes a swimming pool, patios and a rooftop terrace. Once a rundown traditional Algarve house, the property has been rebuilt and transformed with modern spaces, seamless flow and large gardens with picture-perfect views. The minimalist interior design, concrete flooring and linear shapes create a beautiful contemporary space. Sunbathe and relax on the rooftop terrace with views of the hills and a nearby nature reserve; spend days at the local sandy beaches, and buy local food from the nearby markets to take home for alfresco dinners on the patio.
Children will love the design and set up at this beautiful villa - along with its location. DVDs are available. Play on the Algarve’s sandy beaches together, relax by the pool and spend your trip exploring pretty towns and nature reserves nearby. There is plenty of space to play, patios and terraces where they can play and read in the sun or in the shade. There is a huge shopping mall with a children’s playground 10 minutes away by car; a little further away you can find aqua parks open in the summer, Loulé market for local goodies, and Fonte Benemola where you can walk over stepping stones and little bridges past waterfalls and picnic spots on a walk through a nature reserve. Note that there are a number of ungated, step without rails throughout; young children will need a careful eye/ assistance. The property is recommended for those with children over 5 primarily.
This house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and comprises a traditional space and an annex.
