A luxurious and well-maintained villa set in a tranquil location with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and coastal headland.

The villa is well laid out and once through the front door one cannot help but be impressed by the sympathetic use of natural materials with a contemporary feel that make this property an ideal permanent home with a renowned level of thermal comfort or, rental investment property with low running costs.

The entrance hall has a dramatic double-height ceiling with access via an internal staircase to a large roof terrace. The rest of the accommodation benefits from being all on one level. The large open-plan living area embraces the picture perfect pool terrace area with large patio doors off the living room and kitchen. There is an office/occasional bedroom conveniently located next to the main living area.

The kitchen is large and well equipped with upgraded appliances that include an American style fridge. Smart black granite worktops provide plenty of food preparation surface for large family meals. There is a built-in microwave oven, induction hob, and integrated waste disposal unit. The villa also has a “hot water return” system that delivers instantaneous hot water throughout.
The villa has two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms along with a third bedroom currently set up as a twin bed with a shared family bathroom along the hallway. All bedrooms have plenty of integrated wardrobe storage space, and all bathrooms have natural light.

The villa has central heating and under-floor heating in the bathrooms. For the summer months the innovative “coolhouse system” provides a natural alternative to air-conditioning in the daytime living areas. The ambient temperature is consistent and the property is so well insulated that most of the year one can live without heating or cooling. All doors and windows are double glazed and have attractive wooden frames and are sustainably sourced.

The exterior is absolutely fabulous with a large private heated swimming pool as the centre piece. The mature landscaped gardens have a mix of indigenous plants and shrubs and a large amount of lush lawn all irrigated automatically. There is a poolside shower and a garden shed. The garden is fully fenced and secure.

The property is situated within a managed resort and is just a short drive from the traditional fishing village of Burgau with it’s lovely sandy beach. In 2010 Burgau was voted by readers of the Lonely Planet as the “quaintest beachside village” in Europe. The resort itself is at the gateway to the Costa Vicentina Natural Park with its rugged coastline and golden beaches. This peaceful setting is still only 10 km from the popular historic port town of Lagos.

The main town of Lagos has a population of approximately 22,000. Typically, these numbers increase during the summer months, with the influx of visiting tourists and seasonal residents. While the majority of the population lives along the coast and works in tourism and services, the inland region is sparsely inhabited, with the majority of the people working in agriculture and forestry. Lagos is one of the most visited cities in the Algarve and Portugal, due to its variety of tourist-friendly beaches, rock formations, bars, restaurants and hotels, renowned for its vibrant summer nightlife. Yet, Lagos is also a historic centre of the Portuguese Age of Discovery, frequent home of Henry the Navigator’s historical shipyard. Travel website TripAdvisor, classified Lagos as the number 1 travel destination, on a list of "15 destinations on the rise" worldwide.
