“Sitting on a high plateau overlooking a woodland of cork oak and olive trees, this contemporary and luxurious villa with infinity pool is located just 12 kms away from Melides on the Alentejo Coast.”

As the name implies, Hilltop Villa sits on a high plateau overlooking a woodland of cork oak and olive trees, nestled between Grandola and Melides on the Alentejo Coast. Contemporary and luxurious interiors with tranquil surroundings are yours to enjoy when you stay at this beautiful rural property with an infinity pool for 8 guests.

The super spacious interiors totalling 350 sq. metres and feature high wood panelled ceilings with large picture windows and sliding doors all around, allowing for a gentle breeze to flow through and keep the house cool even in the hottest of summers. Unique vintage pieces (mostly Scandinavian and Portuguese) and a collection of Portuguese contemporary art adorn the rooms and walls; whilst huge industrial hanging lights from the Iron Curtain and handpicked design French and Italian fixtures complete the stylish look.

Central heating and a large fireplace are available during the colder times of the year.

Guests that take pleasure in cooking will be delighted with the indoor/outdoor professional kitchen and dining amenities, perfect for creating meals for friends or family. There are also various terrace spots to choose from, where you can do a yoga workout or read a book, or you might choose to just chill out by the panoramic swimming pool.

This region of Portugal is ideal for those wanting to slow down and low-key holidays all year round.  But should you wish to be a bit more active, the nature reserve set around the villa is ideal for hiking and exploring, with Melides lagoon nearby, offering a unique and unspoiled environment for practicing stand-up paddle, amongst the bird life it attracts. 

There are also some extraordinarily beautiful beaches located within a short distance. The Alentejo coastline around Melides has dramatic canyons of colourful sandstone – gold, orange and cream – that give way to a long expanse of sand and the vivid blue Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, popular beaches of Pego and Carvalhal featuring hip beach restaurants and the buzz of trendy Comporta and are located at 30 minutes driving time.

The village of Melides with its blue-trim painted houses is just 12 kms away and makes for a few hours of gentle pottering around - it has a handful of eateries and cafés, artisans’ shops, a charming church square and a market. And a brand-new boutique hotel designed by Christian Louboutin features both a bar and a restaurant open to the public - a special treat to add to your holiday.
