Property Description

Discover this little bit of paradise and live the countryside dream in the Western Algarve, enjoying magnificent panoramic views, close to the sea and white sandy beaches, completely private and yet within close proximity to all amenities. 

This beautiful 5 bedroom villa with a pool sits in an elevated and commanding position, facing south east, close to the seaside village of Burgau and located at the end of a no through lane with good access and comfortably nestled within 42,000 square meters of its own private land.

Enveloped by the sounds of nature, the property is situated within the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, the coastal reserved area, preventing any future development and preserving the local outstanding natural beauty. One is able to walk or horse ride to the beach of Boca do Rio without crossing any national roads.

The surroundings are scattered with a mix of almond, olive, carob and fig trees, all bearing fruit with the beautiful white almond blossom lighting up the landscape with its snow like petals in the winter months of January and February.

The villa has its very own private water supply from a licensed borehole, fast becoming a rarity in the region. Solar and wind energy power the entire property, lowering the carbon footprint and supporting the environment, whilst providing an abundance of free energy year round and running a sustainable lifestyle.

Upon entering the villa we are welcomed by a bright rustic kitchen with locally sourced peach marble work tops. The kitchen flows beautifully into a large open lounge area, where you are met with the most breath-taking countryside views out onto a curved balcony, spanning the length of the property and perfect for alfresco dining.

The light and spacious lounge area embraces a central wood burning fire, highlighting the magnificent high ceilings adorned with decorative chestnut wood beams.

The south wing is accessed via two hallways leading off the lounge and kitchen and offers 3 large bedrooms; the first is a good sized room with beautiful views over-looking the pool and beyond, the second offers a lawn and countryside view through french windows leading to the outdoors and the third, ‘the master bedroom’ a bright and sunny room with direct access to the balcony and a stunning vista across the valleys. 

A large shared bathroom caters for the south wing, also finished with locally sourced peach marble. Adjacent to this, there is a convenient separate guest WC.

The North wing is accessed via a short hall leading off the lounge area providing two further bedrooms, also spacious with high ceilings and both with access to the outdoors. A shared bathroom is located between the two bedrooms, also finished with locally sourced marble.

Outdoor steps lead to the property roof top, where the most amazing 360 degree star gazing can be enjoyed, as well as spectacular views over to Praia da Luz, reaching as far as the Monchique mountains.

From the swimming pool, one is captivated by the magnificent far reaching views and at the same time enjoys absolute privacy. With plenty of space to relax, exercise or remote work whilst being surrounded by nature in a tranquil setting, this location sums up idyllic outdoor living.

Nestled within an abundance of wild life, the area is popular with keen bird watchers eager to spot the hoopoes, eagles and bee-eaters. A nature loving haven with a night life of its own and the sound of owls, nightingales and the ocean waves, you soon find yourself lost in an enchanting eden you can call home. 

This magical location makes for the perfect retreat, a true escape from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. A dream once built and lived for 37 years, now for the first time in its existence, is ready to hand over the baton to be enjoyed just as much in the 21st century.
