Villa Valerio is the quintessential authentic Portuguese home, nestled in a tranquil spot and brimming with rustic charm, this home offers guests a slice of local life. Its pretty façade is a dazzling white-washed affair, accented by burnt orange and framed with creamy wooden shutters.

This majestic two storey home offers accommodation for up to six guests, across three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Set back within its own secluded, green and fragrant grounds, Villa Valerio offers privacy and tranquillity, within the spirit of low-key luxury.

This detached home is securely positioned behind a gated entrance, down a sweeping gravel drive, where guests will stop to draw breath as they take in the prettily cloistered dining veranda set under the dappled trellis shade, or the wrought-iron clad balcony and sun terrace which offers far-reaching views of rolling countryside.

Charmingly natural, the gardens offer space for children to roam freely, whilst swaying palm trees and tropical vegetation add to the authentic, rustic nature of this home, with its hints of Moorish influence. Enjoying a glass of local wine, whilst the catch of the day sizzles on the wood burning outdoor oven at evening time will be as good as it gets.

Ornate statues and pillar box red parasols by the pool simply add eccentric character to this delightful home. The interiors at Villa Valerio are refreshingly natural and home-like; artfully under-designed, this is a veritable ‘home-from-home’ - whilst every last comfort and detail has been covered. 

Sumptuous proportions blend with semi-open plan spaces for an airy effect; finished with striking simplicity, there is a welcoming dining room, immaculately equipped farmhouse style kitchen and cosy lounge. With many artefects having a local reference, some solid timber antique furnishings, hand-painted porcelain and the grounds walled with local stone, this is every inch the genuine Algarvean county dwelling, finished with a little air of grace for a final layer of comfort and style!

What you should know…

  • The closest beaches, golf course and downtown Amaçao are a (short) drive away, so a car is needed

Villa Valerio is nestled in a tranquil spot just five minutes from the charming town of Armaçao de Pera (3 km), where a slice of local life can be sampled.

Bars, local restaurants offering typical Algarve cuisine and supermarkets are less than two kilometres away in the village of Pêra.

Armação de Pêra is a blend of somewhat weather-beaten buildings offering authentic cobbled atmosphere and sea front new builds. The old village to the east of the town by the fisherman’s beach offers more typical Algarve flavour. The 17th century fort remains; originally built to defend the village from pirates, this part of the town has a certain moorish charm.

Set between Carvoeira and Albufeira in central Algarve, Armação de Pêra was originally a small collection of Fishermans huts used by the inhabitants of nearby Pêra. Interestingly, the word Armação is a reference to a Moorish netting method that fishermen used to employ to to catch tuna - the primary industry and source of income for centuries in the Algarve. 

Stretching the length of the town is the long, golden stretch of beach between Ponte da Galé and Senhora da Rocha including a backdrop of lime and sandstone cliffs, caves and coves to explore along the coast.

Venturing a little further, Albufeira is worth a day trip. Albufeira is the liveliest and busiest town on Portugal’s beautiful southern Algarve coastline. Previously a modest fishing village, it is now a well known coastal town brimming with holiday potential. Traditional charm by way of original Moorish flair, the ‘Old Town’ offers a little taste of historic and sleepy small-town authenticity. A stone’s throw from the quiet white-washed streets you will find the dynamic and edgy “Strip” for a buzzing nightlife experience.

For those who wish to venture further afield, day trips to Silves, Faro and Loule are worth considering. Boat and coastal tours offer a leisurely pace for exploring

The beaches along the coastline are wonderful. Whether it be long, lazy days on the loungers or taking advantage of the many water sports including deep sea fishing, windsurfing, diving or dolphin watching, the region is rich with natural beauty. The beach at Armaçao is 3.7 km distance. 

There really is something for everyone in the southern Algarve region. Golf players (Salgados course, 6 km distance), or those who love water sports won’t be disappointed, whilst culinary enthusiasts can take advantage of the many restaurants offering rustic cuisine and seafood.

The Resort

Albufeira is one of the Algarve’s top hotspots. It’s a charismatic beach town with an energetic and busy vibe where every type of holidaymaker can find something to enjoy. Not only is it family friendly and bursting with great activities for kids and teens, there is also a buzzing nightlife scene on the downtown strip for adults travelling on their own.

If you’re after something a bit more cultural, there is also a beautiful Old Town where all the best restaurants and historical sites can be found. For those looking to get a little bit extra out of their Albufeira stay, Vidamar Resort in the Salgados area offers all the perks of staying in a self-catered villa plus the amenities of a luxury resort. 

Not far from there you’ll also come across the beachy Sao Rafael as well as Galé where the sandy stretches and deep blue waves will have you thinking you’re on the set of a photoshoot. Golf lovers might want to head to Amendoeira Golf Resort, located a quick fifteen minutes from Albufeira, which is perfect those who like a good game while still staying close to town. 


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. 

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Catering for children is easy in Portugal; the supermarkets are well stocked with well known brands and the essentials such as formula milk, whilst the restaurants are very family friendly. 

Armação has a wonderful promenade which is ideal for an evening’s stroll; there is a children’s playground whilst the old town has plenty of ice cream parlours.

Water sports are plentiful locally, as are water parks (Zoomarine and Aqualand, to name a few) which are worth making a day trip for. With circa 20 sandy beaches, and an array of family friendly restaurants locally, this lovely part of the Algarve and relaxed house is ideal for children of all ages.
