Villa Praia

From 54,000€ per week
Porches, Algarve
600 sq. m

Tip-top cliff top seclusion

A modern luxury whitewashed villa with North African and Mediterranean accents, such as minarets and terracotta roof tiles, is nestled atop one of the Algarve’s sandstone cliffs and is blessed with a glorious uninterrupted west-facing view sweeping over an unspoiled beach and out to the Atlantic Ocean. To the west of Albufeira and forty-five kilometres from Faro airport, the closest town Porches (three kilometres), is renown as home to the most beautiful Algarve pottery and this luxury rental is a unique one of a precious handful of private luxury villas available at one of Europe’s most prestigious and Michelin-starred resorts. Literally on the doorstep (fifty metres) is the beach – picturesque and unspoiled Praia dos Tremoços – flanked between the crystalline sea and the cliff rock face and rarely crowded. The villa shrouded by indigenous trees and tall palms to ensure complete privacy is formed of several interconnecting architectural blocks of varying volumes and levels: one with an upper floor and two with a roof terrace, accessible from the villa’s main pool via an outdoor staircase. Furthermore the villa is designed with full-length and sliding glazed access to the outside from all the interior living areas, kitchen and bedrooms, whilst air-conditioning and underfloor heating throughout adds to this rental’s allure as an all year-round destination. The décor has a fresh and nautical-inspired colour palette based on brilliant white, pastel or aquamarine blues and silver giving an airy, contemporary ambience accessorised with original artworks by a contemporary artist of renown. Furnishings include an eye-catching range of intricately woven or wicker sunbeds, cushioned sofas, hangings swing chairs and conical-topped seats. These, provided on the terrace, are another fine aspect of this villa’s appeal. The sea-facing, aquamarine and near circular, cliff-edge infinity swimming-pool is flanked entirely by a sun terrace arranged with a dining alcove between the pleasingly furnished chill out and sitting spots. The pool features hydro jets and is child-friendly, with a stepped shallow end as well as a swim current for all ages and abilities. 

The villa has the capacity to sleep 8 guests in 4 king-size bedrooms en suite – one upper level – are provided with a sitting area and full-glazed opening to the terrace. The upper level suite has the added benefit of a steam bath and all enjoy an ocean panorama, which guests can indulge from the pool terrace and front lawn, from a delightful garden gazebo and from the roof terrace which provides for full pergola cover and provides an idyllic setting at sunset for a cocktail or two. These outdoor hubs are suitably designed for private rest and relaxation as well as convivial entertaining al fresco. If there is any urge to stray from your beach, there are others within easy reach in the wide bay of Armação de Pêra: among them the aromatic thyme-lined Praia dos Beijinhos, reached only by a wood staircase down the cliff face; the Praia da Galé and the dunes of the Salgados lagoon and nature reserve. 

Here is a luxury villa most suitable for a family and ideal for couples seeking a tranquil luxury beach “home away from-home” with a superb view and suitably arranged for private relaxation and socialising. With deluxe amenities and service a few minutes away, the villa provides a cocoon from the outside world and is appreciably removed, (yet conveniently close), from the bars and boutiques bubble of Albufeira (15 km).
