Algarve homes with a view

by Sun’s Dragon   

Algarve View Portugal

“High on a hill stood a lonely goatherd” as the famous ditty from the Sound of Music goes – well you will find goatherds in the Algarve but I don’t know if they are lonely and I’ve never heard them yodel.

As you get away from the coastal area, the Algarve is hilly; and among those beautiful hills are some stunning properties with fantastic views. We’ve picked out a few to give you an idea of what the Algarve looks like from above.

Perna Seca, Silves - €210,000

High in the hills of the Serra de Caldeirão, we found a typical Portuguese farmhouse (Quinta). Lovingly renovated yet keeping many of the original features, such as the traditional Portuguese bread oven in the fully fitted kitchen. The living room is cosy with a wood burning stove and there’s a separate office/family room. With three double bedrooms (the master bedroom is en-suite) and a large bathroom, this is an ideal family home.

Outside is a sunny terrace where a tiled bench faces the built in BBQ, surrounded by beautiful potted plants. The gardens are mature and well-kept and are just begging for a vegetable patch. All this is set in 2,439m2 of stunning countryside and still within easy reach of the south coast’s attractions.

Marmelete, Monchique - €499K (was 745K)

Here is a fantastic opportunity to snap up a bargain. In the hills of Monchique with their spectacular views, we found this stunning, four bedroom, five bathroom villa. Sitting in 8000m2 of land, you drive through the impressively gated entrance, up the sweeping driveway past the fabulous tree filled gardens and there sits the house in all its glory. Apart from the four bedrooms, there’s the living and dining areas with a fireplace. The kitchen is fully fitted, complete with a work island, and leads to the terraces with their views of the mountains and the sea in the distance. To complete this large villa, there’s a laundry room and a basement with a gym. Outside is a huge swimming pool, with its own bridge to an island in the centre, surrounded by sun filled terraces with a beautiful dining area and a tennis court close by. This has to be a veritable paradise for those who are health conscious and want to keep fit!

Sitio do Arneiro, Loulé  -  €190,000

A rustic, country cottage set in 1,800m2 of land, with its own orchard containing a variety of 90 fruit trees. The living room has a mezzanine, there’s a separate dining room and the kitchen is fully fitted. Two bedrooms with a shared bathroom complete this little gem. Built with local stone and Santa Catarina floor tiles, it also has the mod cons of double glazing, alarm system and air conditioning. Outside we find a garage, storage and fully automatic irrigation for the garden, from which there are spectacular views. Shopping facilities are close by, yet this is a perfect hideaway for peace and tranquillity,

São Brás de Alportel - €495,000

Here we have a lovely, double storied villa, just three kilometres to the west of the bustling town of São Brás, with fabulous views, overlooking the rolling hills above Faro. Built in 2000, the owners have maintained a very high standard and this 220m2 house is in excellent condition. The sitting room has a wood burning fireplace, the dining room seats eight and the kitchen is fully fitted, light and airy; there’s also a laundry/utility room. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, it would make a perfect family home.

This beautiful but practical villa is sitting on a large plot of 3,852m2, with a swimming pool, terraces and BBQ area for that all important outside dining. The garden is easily maintained with an irrigation system. There’s also a fine garage.

Villa Sao Bras Algarve Portugal

Estorninhos, Tavira - €360K

Now here is a house with a difference; it has a turret! High above Tavira town, it commands stunning views across the countryside. This large villa has a covered area of 318m2 and sits in a large plot of 12,145m2, so we’re thinking big here!

There’s a galleried lounge in the turret leading to a balcony and roof terrace. The kitchen is very large with an island and dining space, which takes you to the BBQ area with its own terrace. Featuring five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study and an office, a lower floor with two play rooms, a games room and a bar, there’s ample space for a large family. The basement area opens onto to the novelty swimming pool, with its sun drenched terraces for sunbathingwith stairs lead down from here to the gardens below.
