Villa Francisco, Carvoeiro, Algarve

Sleeps 10+2

€14,375 - €27,500 per week

One of the ‘coolest’ houses we have seen in Portugal. Perched on a promontory on the cliffs, just on the edge of Carvoeiro village and with stunning 180 degree sea views, this is a four hectare haven of peace and privacy.

Both the village and the beach are within walking distance and for the courageous there is also some sea swimming from the rocks on the other side of the garden.
A boat with skipper can be chartered for day trips.

The house was designed by a renowned American architect and is the epitome of ‘70’s cool’ in design.  It is surrounded by gardens filled with olive trees, fig trees and flowers and there is an unusual interior courtyard with a water feature running the length and breadth and dotted with large pots of giant cacti.  This is the perfect place for an evening drink or al fresco dinner.
Various other seating and dining areas are placed around the gardens and numerous terraces.

The master bedroom, set on one side of the living areas, has outside access only through bay windows looking over the garden and pool to the sea. The suite is very spacious and has its own large sitting room and a tiny courtyard with a water feature.

A large double bedroom with en suite bathroom is on the other side of the house, again on garden level, and has a pretty terrace overlooking the gardens and the sea.

A further two twin bedrooms and a double bedroom, all en suite, are on the lower garden level accessed by a staircase from the main living area but also with outside access too – these do not have air conditioning.

There is also one other twin bedroom.  This has not yet been renovated to the same standard as the others but is fine for over-nighting teenagers or perhaps a nanny.

The house has a wonderful, large, open plan living area, all fronted with big bay widows. The décor is a cool mix of antiques and more contemporary furniture, mixed with lovely pieces brought back from travels overseas.

This is an unusual and very stylish house in one of the most perfect locations on the Algarve coast.
