while being just a 5 minute drive away from the bars and restaurants on
the coast in Benagil and the cozy village Carvoeiro.

inhabitants and Lisbon as its capital.
The vacation villa is very spacious and offers ample living space for 6 people.
The living room with dining area has sliding doors to a large terrace with two
dining tables and chairs and which is partially covered with a shade triangle so
you can also choose to sit in the shade. From the terrace you can walk directly
to the private swimming pool of approximately 5 x 7 meters. There is a staircase
in the pool, the bottom slopes gently from about 50 cm to over 2 meters, so that
your children can stand at the beginning of the pool.
The living room is equipped with air conditioning with which in winter the room
can be heated. There is also a cozy woodburning stove (firewood included in
price) to create a lovely warm atmosphere in the winter months. So, a nice home,
also for long winter stays. Pets are generally welcome, pets allowed on request.

Algarve Vila Maria is a detached villa on a plot of approx 4.500m2 fully

owner) and (sub)tropical plants.
In short, the perfect holiday villa for those who love peace and privacy, for
long (or short) winter stays, for families with children, small and large,
because the usual livelihood of holiday villages and the many things to do, can
be experienced on your own choice and time in a short proximity and only when
you want to do so.

and also for the kids there is a lot to do: Water Parks Agualand and Slide and
Splash, Go- carting in Algoz, Zoo Marine in Guia. All the ingredients for a
perfect holiday in a villa in the sun.
The holiday villa in Portugal is only a 45 minutes drive away from Faro airport.
Given the rural location of the villa, a rental car strongly recommended, partly
because public transport is not yet ideal. We therefore always recommend our
guests to look at
Faroairport-carrental.com for a good car at a reasonable price. They
have a shared office at P4 of the airport, so you can pick up your car at just
50 meters from the airport building and return it there as well.
Although we speak of a holiday home, holiday house, apartment, Quinta or casa in
Portugal, Algarve, Vila Maria is a villa which is often and very frequently
occupied by the owner. When you are there, you will notice that it is a real
private residence with photos of our family and friends, personal items, books,
games, paintings made by the lady of the house and many other little things
that show that you are not staying in a decrepit commercial rental property, but
a fine complete comfortable home where the owner himself regularly enjoys all
the good things that the Algarve and Vila Maria has to offer. Obviously there is
no one else on the premises or in the villa when there are tenants. Only the
gardener/pool man comes 1x per week to maintain the garden and pool so you have
a clean pool to swim and a well kept garden to enjoy. The maid comes 2 times per
week, once to dust and clean, once to change the beds and towels.
It is possible that your vacation weeks are already booked by another party. You
can look for alternatives at Algarve.nu
Perhaps you can find another nice holiday villa or holiday apartment to enjoy
your holidays in the Algarve.
