This exquisite villa in the heart of Portugal’s Algarve region is a true oasis of tranquility. Nestled within a 92-hectare private estate dotted with fruit trees and gardens, this stunning 17th-century countryside retreat is a place full of inspiration and possibilities.

Renovated in 2018, the home boasts approximately 300m2 (3,200sqft) of luxurious living space that blends the charm of old-world architecture with the convenience of modern amenities. The villa has remained in the same family for over 360 years, which has preserved its unique character and timeless elegance.

The main house is the heart of the property, with 5 spacious bedrooms that can accommodate up to 10 guests. Each bedroom is individually designed, offering a comfortable and luxurious stay with high-quality linens, antique furnishings, and traditional Portuguese tiles. The living and dining areas are spacious and welcoming, perfect for gathering with family and friends, and the fully-equipped kitchen allows you to indulge in your favorite culinary pursuits. The villa also has staff quarters, ensuring your stay is worry-free.

The two guest houses are a stone’s throw from the main house, each beautifully appointed with fresh, fun furnishings and spacious living/dining rooms that are cozy with a wood-burning fireplace and TV. A small but well-equipped kitchen with breakfast veranda and two full bathrooms (one upstairs and one down) offer additional space for guests.

The private chapel is a highlight of the villa, where you’ll find a beautiful altar crafted with traditional Portuguese carving. It offers a tranquil space for reflection or prayer, adding to the unique character of this property.

Surrounded by acres of manicured and well-tended gardens, the pool area is slightly apart from the main house, offering an idyllic, sheltered area to spend leisurely days soaking up the tranquility, playing with the kids, or dozing under a shady umbrella or centuries-old tree. The central patio is perfect for enjoying an outdoor barbecue or al fresco dining with friends and family.

With plenty of spaces for you and your companions to come together, you may be tempted to spend your whole getaway within the villa’s beautiful confines. But if you do venture out, you’ll find that the villa’s secluded location is just 15 minutes from the beach and the town of Portimão, where you can enjoy fresh seafood and local specialties.

And for those who love horses, there is a riding center nearby, allowing you to explore the stunning countryside on horseback.

In these surprisingly peaceful surroundings, you are sure to experience a relaxed and memorable stay in this authentic Algarve retreat. Whether you’re looking for a VIP retreat or a unique venue for a special occasion, this villa is sure to impress.
