Description from manager
''Villa Tranquila is a very well appointed villa, with excellent facilities for family fun and a superb location in the heart of the Algarve for days out''
During the substantial refurbishment of Villa Tranquila, every detail was meticulously overseen by caring and conscientious owners with a keen eye for both quality and style. The outcome is a beautifully presented, very well appointed and extremely welcoming country house, both inside and out.
Substantial wrought iron gates greet you on arrival, ushering you into the private, cobbled entrance courtyard with plenty of covered and open parking space. If first impressions are lasting impressions then this is a fine start.
The property throughout is decorated to a very high standard with a carefully chosen blend of antique and contemporary furnishings, eye-catching light fittings and mix of hand-painted and terracotta tiling creating a most hospitable ambience.
Open-plan in design, the living room is spacious, comfortable and airy with double doors onto a long covered dining terrace. Keen cooks will be delighted with the state-of-the-art kitchen; a large, bright room with a first-class range of quality Siemens and AEG appliances, a comprehensive inventory and ample worktop space finished in attractive black marble. Opposite here, the dining room is also generously finished with substantial, tasteful furniture.
With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, central heating throughout, as well as air conditioning in some rooms, Villa Tranquila is not lacking in home comforts. The principal bedroom, on the first floor, boasts a queen-size double bed, a dedicated dressing area and a wonderful en suite bathroom with feature antique roll top bath. Five steps up from the bedroom, a door leads out onto the roof terrace and a perfect, private suntrap for committed sunbathers. Alongside the pool and ideal for party members seeking additional independence, a separate, self-contained suite can be found.
Unfurling over two levels, the attractive, landscaped garden has a small lawn, shady seating under the shadow of two mature trees and a little grove of young olive trees. Sunken into the ground semi-hidden from view is an intriguing, circular meditation area, a peaceful and calming spot also reputed to be a mystical source of energy for the house.
Boliqueime (4km) with its shops and two restaurants is perfect for essential amenities and you have a choice of several gorgeous sandy beaches within a 20-30 minute drive. East of Malhão, the elegant riverside town of Tavira, approached though a tapestry of lush orange and lemon plantations is a lovely day trip. Straddling the Rio Gilão, it is considered one of the most pleasant and picturesque places on the Algarve, famous for its abundance of emblematic churches which number over thirty in total. A short distance across the estuary by ferry, the Ilha de Tavira is a wonderful sand dune island, ideal for swimming. Nearby, there are also the towns, villages and cities of Paderne (10 mins drive), Loule (25 mins drive), Vilamoura (25 mins drive), and Faro (30 mins drive).
