Property description

Casa Bolota is a very popular, luxury, 3 bedroomed villa with a gorgeous private pool and lovely landscaped gardens, sitting in a quiet countryside location with breathtaking views across the Goldra Valley. The villa although in a wonderful, tranquil location, is well situated and just a short distance from the many tourist attractions in the area.

Its very convenient location, with Faro airport only 15/20 minutes away, led TV Presenter Nicki Chapman to call the villa 'the 20 minute villa' when it was featured on Escape to the Continent as 'The Mystery House'. The villa was described in the programme as "Wow, this is lovely, so lovely. It really is very, very nice, with its beautiful landscaped grounds, fabulous pool, breathtaking views, a house with a presence, in a quiet idyllic setting, very impressive." Our many returning guests feel the same way and enjoy this special luxury 'home from home'. Our 5* reviews say it all!

Although a modern villa, it has been built in a traditional style giving it lots of character. On the ground floor there is a spacious lounge/dining area with 3 sets of French doors, with views out to the beautiful gardens and terraces. There are 2 bedrooms on this floor, a double and a king size, a family bathroom, plus an additional cloakroom. The villa has a modern well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and an American fridge freezer with drinks cooler and ice maker plus several coffee machines. There is also a useful separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board. When its time to retreat from the sun there is a small games room on this floor, with TV, blue ray player (DVD's provided to suit all ages), a Wii console with some sports games, Karaoke and Zumba, an exercise bike to keep you fit and plenty of board games for all the family to enjoy. The games room has a sofa bed for extra flexibility.

The large Master bedroom is on the 1st floor and has its own private staircase, an en-suite bathroom and large private balcony with spectacular views.

Outside there is a Private Pool with yet more stunning views, comfortable sunbeds, cooler box tables, to keep your drinks nice and refreshing and umbrellas to provide that much needed shade. The gardens are filled with mature shrubs and flowers, palm trees, olive trees and many fruit trees such as orange, lemon, clementine, peach, plum, avocado, pear, grapefruit, pomegranate etc. There are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the Algarve sun, including a hammock! It has all those little touches to make your holiday memorable and as relaxing as possible. For those feeling a little more energetic there is an outdoor table tennis table.

For al fresco dining there is a large traditional barbecue and two separate dining areas provided, one on the rear terrace off the lounge and one around the pool area. Children are catered for with 2 travel cots and 2 high chairs plus a stair gate provided and the pool area is fenced off. We try our best to cater for all your holiday needs, to make your stay as relaxing as possible Why not make it your holiday destination this Summer?

The property is fully fenced with electric gates and video/intercom. It has a monitored alarm system, electric shutters and outside lighting. Windows have fly screens. Access to the pool area is fenced and gated for child safety.

Location

The villa although in a wonderful, tranquil location, is well situated and just a short distance from the many tourist attractions in the area. You get the best of both worlds. The beach resorts of Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago, Quarteira and Vilamoura and others are all within easy reach. Many of the beaches in the Algarve are blue flag beaches. Quinta do lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura have 13 excellent golf courses between them only 20+ minutes away. And as an added bonus when you set off to go to the beach or to play golf, you will see spectacular sea views, tempting you along your way.

The villa is situated just a few minutes away from the picturesque town of Loule. It is a characterful, historic, market town with cobbled side streets, a 13th/14th century castle, shops, cafes and restaurants. It's a vibrant place with interesting Moorish and Roman influences in its architecture and has a well known daily, busy indoor market in a striking pink, Arabian style building, plus a Saturday gypsy market. Many events are organised in the town throughout the year. They include the spectacular Noite Branca, the festival of white night, where everyone, even visitors dress all in white to enjoy the music and dancing. Also the colourful Brazilian style Loule carnival which lasts for 3 days and is quite spectacular!! During the summer there are often music festivals held in the town.

Although having a very traditional feel and appearance, the town also has good sporting facilities and was crowned the European City of Sport in 2015. It has an Olympic sized swimming pool, great tennis courts etc. plus outdoor exercise equipment located in the park. It plays host to many competitions and International events throughout the year, such as cycling and swimming events.

You can explore the lovely countryside on quad bikes and Rooster Quad Tours is easily accessible. In addition there is bike hire available locally (bikes can be delivered to the villa). The countryside around the villa is perfect for walking and if you venture up the hill behind the villa you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the coast.

Although the villa is in a tranquil, out of the way setting it is very conveniently located and there is plenty to do for all the family not far from the villa. Lots of lovely beaches are approximately only 15/20 minutes away. You can choose from peaceful, long stretches of sand or more touristy beaches with water sports etc. There is a multi screen Cinema 10 minutes away (films are often shown in English with Portuguese sub titles). The Aquashow Parque is under 20 minutes away, Go Karting 15 minutes away and Zoo Marine is 30 minutes away. Plus, if you want some retail therapy there is a new large retail shopping outlet, Mar Shopping 10 minutes away from the villa which has the multi screen cinema, food outlets, shops and a designer outlet village. Many UK and International brand names can be purchased here.

There is a very large Continente supermarket just a few minutes drive up the road, so you can stock up ready, for al fresco dining and barbecueing. There are also several other large supermarkets in Loule.

There is an abundance of quality restaurants within a short drive, to suit all tastes and budgets from Michelin starred, to great food at very cheap prices, with wonderful country and sea views thrown in. You will be spoilt for choice.

Client Reviews

Beautiful luxury villa in the central Algarve area
We had a fantastic stay at Casa Bolota. We were a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) and the villa had plenty of space, and was well equipped for us all. The villa is immaculate and there is nothing that the kitchen doesn't have. It really is a home from home.

It has the most beautiful, peaceful gardens and grounds, with lots of outdoor seating space to eat outside. It has a fantastic swimming pool area which we spent a lot of our time at during our stay.
There was a lot of useful information in the villa for things to do in the surrounding areas and it's only a short drive to the beaches, golf, airport, towns and shops - so something there for everyone to enjoy. We played golf at Vilamoura and Vale de Lobo, and went sailing from Albuferia and Vilamoura marinas - all very accessible from Casa Bolota.We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a holiday in the Algarve area, and we would definitely return for another visit.
Thanks Julie for a wonderful family holiday. The Munro Family.

Fabulous!!
We had the most wonderful holiday at Casa Bolota. The villa is in a beautiful location with amazing views. It's so tastefully decorated and has every home comfort you need. The kids had a great time in the pool and we spent many relaxing hours by the pool enjoying the peace and tranquility. This was our first villa holiday and will definitely not be our last. We will be back!! Absolutely loved it. Andy M
