Enjoying its privileged, elevated position in the charming hamlet of Malhao, this fabulous, recently renovated authentic Portuguese farmhouse, boasts the most amazing countryside views. The stunning gardens have been beautifully designed so that swaying palms and gorgeous olive trees frame the magnificent vista. This 5 bedroom gem of a villa sleeps 10 guests in superb luxury and comfort.

Just a few kilometres away is the charming village of Boliqueime and 12-14km away are the gorgeous beaches of the Algarve and the vibrant towns of Albufeira and Vilamoura. How fabulous to be able to enjoy the buzz of these fantastic towns and return to the tranquillity and space of Casa Amendoa.

You will be seriously impressed when arriving at Casa Amendoa. The distinctive blue and white painted exterior is delightful, and the grounds are exquisite. The farmhouse is built in a U-shape around a central courtyard. The interior is elegant and graceful with superb, contemporary furnishings and fittings. The accommodation is spread across three floors with a very large annexe housing a second living room and games room.

The main living, dining and kitchen area is magnificent, open plan in design, with graceful arches between the kitchen and dining area. The vaulted wooden ceilings throughout are gorgeous, and the brilliant white and soft hues give the villa such a cool and elegant feel. With traditional terracotta tiled floors in all of the rooms, the villa flows wonderfully. A very large refectory table allows all guest to dine inside together and the kitchen is extremely well fitted. Throughout the villa, you will admire the hand-chosen artworks, sculptures and pieces of furniture. The blend of contemporary with authentic Portuguese is just perfect.

The first of the five extremely spacious bedrooms is on the lower ground floor. It is luxurious and has a lovely, welcoming ambience. All of the bedrooms have their own ensuite bathroom. This bedroom opens directly onto a terrace and the beautiful gardens. Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor. One is a dazzling double with ensuite shower room and doors opening onto a terrace, and the other is a delightful twin. Here you have a bath with a handheld shower. Again the linens are soft and luxurious.

The remaining two havens of tranquillity are located on the first floor. One has a kingsize bed, and the other is a twin. Both have access to a lovely balcony where you can enjoy magnificent views.

The impressive annexe is a wonder, with a huge living area and games room. Youngsters and adults alike will enjoy the table tennis, pool and table football on offer. There are also tables for games of cards and lovely chill-out areas. Playstation 4 is also provided for entertainment.

Casa Amendoa’s grounds are beautiful. Very clever planting with olive, cypress and palm trees, lush lawns, handpicked shrubs and plants and pretty pathways meandering between the trees create a wonderful feel. There is a stunning vista at every turn, particularly from the main swimming pool where two majestic palms frame the view of the countryside below and out towards the sea. The 12m x 5m pool is lovely, and there is a separate children’s pool. Alfresco dining under the shade of a timber pergola is wonderful. You can enjoy the villa’s built-in barbecue and watch the sun go down.

Casa Amendoa is such a find for a large group of holidaymakers, your very own idyllic paradise.

Nestled in the picturesque Algarve region of southern Portugal, the charming village of Boliqueime exudes a timeless allure that captures the hearts of all who visit. This tranquil haven, enveloped by rolling hills and verdant countryside, is a hidden gem offering a delightful blend of rustic charm and modern comforts.

Boliqueime is a quintessential Portuguese village known for its white-washed houses adorned with terracotta roofs, quaint cobblestone streets, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The village square, with its charming cafes and the striking Parish Church of São Faustino, serves as the heart of the community. Here, locals gather to socialize, and visitors can savour traditional Portuguese cuisine while soaking in the relaxed ambience.

Beyond the village, the surrounding countryside boasts a captivating natural beauty. Olive groves, vineyards, and citrus orchards stretch as far as the eye can see, creating a patchwork of vibrant green hues against the backdrop of the golden Algarve sun. The aroma of citrus blossoms fills the air in spring, adding a fragrant dimension to the landscape.

For those seeking outdoor adventures, the hills and trails around Boliqueime offer excellent opportunities for hiking and cycling. The undulating terrain and panoramic vistas make for a rewarding exploration of the region's flora and fauna. Birdwatchers will also be delighted by the diverse avian species that call this area home.

The nearby beaches of Vilamoura, Albufeira, and Quarteira are just a short drive away, providing an enticing escape to the crystal-clear waters and golden sands of the Algarve coast. These coastal towns offer a plethora of water-based activities, from sailing and surfing to simply basking in the sun.

Boliqueime's location is not only convenient for exploring the coast but also for discovering the Algarve's cultural and historical treasures. The Moorish influences are evident in the architecture and design of many buildings, including the impressive Castle of Paderne, a short drive away.

In the evenings, Boliqueime transforms into a haven of serenity under the starry Portuguese sky. As the village lights twinkle, it becomes evident that this unassuming village in the heart of the Algarve offers a tranquil escape where time seems to stand still, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the authentic beauty and culture of Portugal.
