Pool Villa/House Modern
Great Value
Ideal for Parties

Boasting breathtaking views of the Portuguese countryside, Villa Nelin is the epitome of Algarve bliss and the perfect base camp for exploring the nearby towns and villages. It is only a short drive from Faro as well, so connections to and from the airport are convenient.

The charming aesthetics of the villa combine a potent blend of contemporary style and Portuguese tradition (note the iconic azulejos tiling), which grounds the property in both comfort and authenticity. No expense is spared on the furnishings of the six bedrooms either, four of which have large double beds. If you’re travelling in a big group, you’ll be relieved to hear that Villa Nelin has four bathrooms, avoiding any long ques!

Be sure to take advantage of the spacious terrace area, which comes complete with a covered granite dining table, a barbeque and an open seating feature just perfect for soaking up the sun. The undisputed centrepiece of the property is the large private swimming pool.

Located below the terrace, you can experience a moment of glamour as you walk down the white marble steps to the waiting waters. The pool’s location makes it easy to keep an eye on the children from the overlooking balcony as well, so they can splash around all afternoon without you having to worry.

For those rare times when the sun hides, Villa Nelin is more than prepared for a bit of time indoors. Grill some camarão (prawns) in the fully equipped kitchen or relax with a spot of television (fitted with English speaking channels). The living room fireplace adds a rustic appeal and is an ideal distraction for those hunter-gatherer dads in the colder months.

As for internet connections, we know how integral kids can be with their phones, so they’ll be pleased to discover the villa’s fast WiFi network. Villa Nelin covers all the usual amenities as well, including central and underfloor heating, a microwave, oven, washing machine and a dishwasher.

Villa Nelin is a fantastic choice for large groups and families alike, with its location in the heart of the Algarve making it a prime place for any holiday. It comes fully air-conditioned as well, something you’ll be grateful for when the mercury hits 35°.

What you should know…

  • Hiring a car is your best bet for exploring the surrounding villages and countryside. Public transport is available, but getting around the Algarve on your own terms is where it’s at
  • The Algarve is a gateway to the Atlantic Ocean, which is generally speaking a more turbulent body of water than the Mediterranean. Keep an eye on the waves when kids are playing if they enjoy venturing out!
  • Only three of the six bedrooms have air conditioning

This home is a part of our Great Value Collection!

Tucked away in rolling Portuguese hills, Villa Nelin is a little spot of paradise in the Algarve. You’ll find a wealth of things to see and do in the surrounding towns and villages, so don’t be afraid to spend a bit of time just exploring.

The property is only a 15-minute drive from the historic town of Loulé, a top destination for visitors to the region. Its numerous historical attractions draw in visitors from across the area, and its plethora of authentic restaurants provide ample amount of delicious Portuguese cuisine.

Also, just a short drive away is the famous resort town of Vilamoura; a seaside destination packed full of exciting sights and blissful beaches. Particularly beautiful is Falesia beach, a long stretch of sand famous for its pristine nature and colourful cliffs.

The beach hugs the coast for miles and miles, meaning you won’t have any difficulty finding your private retreat. Dining isn’t a problem in Vilamoura either, with tons of eateries offering fresh fish plucked straight from the ocean. You should consider a trip in the morning to see the first catch being brought in by the local fisherman at Quarteria market.

If you’re a fan of ancient history then definitely head to the fascinating Roman ruins of Cerro de Vila. This archaeologically significant site contains Roman baths and a selection of well-preserved mosaics, some of which still boast intricate, vibrant patterns. With an entry fee of 3 euros, Cerro de Vila is a great inclusion in any Vilamoura itinerary.

Adventurous travellers will find no shortage of exhilarating water sports along the beaches of Vilamoura, which includes paragliding, parasailing and boat charters.

Nature lovers are in for a treat as well with the dolphin and whale watching tours available throughout the summer season. Whatever your reason for visiting, Villa Nelin’s proximity to some of the Algarve’s very best makes it a sublime choice for your Portuguese getaway.

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. There’s actually a load of fascinating culture and history, superb cuisine and enthralling adventures to be had, though we’d be the first to admit that the beaches are pretty special too, with lots of sand, spectacle and wonderfully clean water.

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!

Best Suited For: All Ages

The swimming above the pool is an obvious bonus for families with children, but Villa Nelin offers loads more.

Amp up the fun with a visit to Aquashow Park, a water park filled with thrilling rides sure to excite the whole family.

Vilamoura’s beaches are a good option too, and nothing quite beats cooling down with ice cream by the seaside.

There are great opportunities for a spot of rock pooling in some of the lesser-known beaches, and small nets are inexpensive.

Children won’t tire of catching the endless variety of crabs, prawns and other creatures swimming around. You never know, you might enjoy it too!

    The outdoor area is very well maintained and everything is completely fenced.
    At night it's gorgeous to sit outside and enjoy the view.
