Villa Carrapateira boasts sea views and a truly exclusive location bordering the dunes. Indeed, it’s a wonderfully tranquil setting on the edge of a small residential area (housing several villas) that’s completely surrounded by nature. The Portuguese owners (who originally hail from Lisbon) fell head over heels with this stunning, relatively undiscovered part of the Western Algarve; the sea, omnipresent breeze, the peace and tranquillity and, in particular, the notable lack of tourists. They’ve been holidaying in this Portuguese region for some 20 years, and were fortunate enough to be able to purchase a most beautiful piece of land where they subsequently built their dream holiday villa. An impressive family home, where they could also invite family and friends!
This is a villa for the ‘happy few’ who wish to combine their penchant for luxurious living with a love of the sea, breathtaking landscapes and off the beaten track destinations. With multiple levels and terraces, the property is an architectural masterpiece where light and space prevail. Indeed, the villa boasts concrete floors throughout, sleek white walls, vast windows, beautiful pieces of carefully chosen furniture and colourful details – a genuine feast for the eyes.
With 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, Villa Carrapateira can comfortably accommodate a total of 14 people. Each bedroom opens out onto a lovely terrace, and every terrace benefits from an abundance of lounge cushions where chilling out in the sea breeze is de rigueur. The open plan kitchen/living room with expansive dining table is ideal for communal dining, whilst the living room benefits from large sliding doors (on two sides) that spill out onto the terraces and a 3.5 x 6 m swimming pool. And what an indulgence, this glittering, mosaic-tiled swimming pool overlooking the dunes and sea to the distance! The basement houses a play room with table tennis table, making it the perfect place for the kids. That’s, of course, if it hasn’t been confiscated by the parents! With a home cinema in the living room (facilitating big screen movies), the grown-ups will also find plenty to keep them entertained at Villa Carrapateira.
Two beautiful beaches offering world class surfing, sweeping sands and towering cliffs, are within a comfortable 5-10-minute drive of the holiday home. Small beachfront restaurants are open for drinks and snacks during the summer months. Fancy swapping this dramatic scenery for the calm, balmy Mediterranean? A number of Mediterranean beaches are just a short, 25-minute drive away. The nearby village of Carrapateira meanwhile, boasts a lovely little restaurant where you can enjoy a decent burger and casual drinks.
