“A beautiful and luxurious design villa with heated pool in a quiet rural setting close to the coast, perfect for large groups wanting a relaxing and chilling stay in the sunny Algarve.”

On the Eastern Algarve, Villa Alfarroba has been beautifully restored from a grand Portuguese country house into a luxury design villa for modern living. Accommodating 20 to 30 guests, it’s ideally suited for large family groups or friends’ get-togethers. It enjoys a quiet rural setting with distant sea views, perfect for getting away from it all.

This exceptionally spacious property with a rustic-chic vibe boasts 15 individually styled en-suite bedrooms, each with either a private terrace or small garden. The living areas feature polished concrete floors with fireplaces and a bar, and for any hipster’s delight, there is also vinyl collection room. A covered dining terrace overlooks the delightfully landscaped grounds.

The heated salt-water pool and beach solarium complete with day beds for chilling out and the tranquil garden is just the place for wiling away the hours with a book. For those wanting to be more active, there is a petanque court, volleyball net and bikes.

Villa Alfarroba sits within 10 hectares planted with ancient olive, carob (alfarrobas in Portuguese), and almonds trees and is a haven for birdlife. There is also an orchard and vegetable and herb garden, whilst high-quality olive oil is produced from the farm’s olive crops – guests are welcome to consume any seasonal produce.

The town of Tavira and the coast are located just a short drive away, as is Olhão with its cubic architecture and market. The coastline here sits within the Ria Formosa Natural Park and you can reach its outlying islands and some truly spectacular beaches by taxi boat from the waterfront.
