Elegantly situated within fully enclosed grounds, surrounded by an undulating landscape of open countryside dotted with farmsteads and hamlets, Villa Gomes is a wonderful spot in which to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Combined with easy access to sandy beaches, traditional villages and towns, this truly is a delightful and convenient base from which to make the most of the Algarve’s many attractions.
Welcoming visitors as they enter, a traditional ‘calçada’ cobbled drive and parking area fringe the front and side of the house. Stepping inside you will find a contemporary, unfussy and roomy interior where the subtle décor, tasteful furnishings and cooling terracotta floor tiles combine to create a peaceful, calming ambience totally in harmony with the natural surroundings.
A cloakroom, large living/dining room, modern well equipped kitchen and an air conditioned twin bedroom with en suite bathroom all lead off the entrance hall. In the living/dining area patio doors open directly onto a pergola-covered dining terrace that looks across to the large private swimming pool, south-east facing and perfectly positioned to catch the glorious sunshine.
Stairs lead up to the first floor and two further bedrooms; a principal en suite and a twin also en suite. Each bedroom again offers air conditioning and also has access onto a spacious sun terrace, ideal for some private sunbathing or perhaps an evening aperitif while admiring the distant ocean view as the sun gently sinks below the horizon.
Grounds of almost two acres house an abundance of trees and plants including palms, citrus, bougainvillea and various indigenous shrubs that provide vibrant splashes of colour. Look out for the thriving Medronheiro – a species of tree famous for producing the local speciality ‘medronho’ brandy. An in built barbecue is conveniently located outside the kitchen and there is ample space in which to relax on the terrace and lawns that border the pool.
