The backdrop of uninterrupted countryside stretching 12kms to the coast is magnificent. There are two swimming pools. The main one is large at 15m x 5m with corner Roman steps and a pool shower. There is a separate solar heated children’s pool which is still a good size at 7m x 3.5m. At the end of the main pool, you will find fantastic, wooden beamed games and lounge room with a kitchen, lounge area and a fabulous range of games including table football, table tennis, pool, a card table, Playstation, TV and DVD.

The villa flows beautifully from room to room. As soon as you enter the villa, the striking entrance hall will impress, and the high, vaulted, beamed living room ceiling gives such a fantastic ambience. The villa was recently refurbished with quality contemporary furnishings throughout.

Two of the four bedrooms are situated on the lower level of the villa. There is a gorgeous double bedroom with a very lovely, fully-tiled ensuite bathroom, dressing area and doors to the side terrace and garden.

What you should know…

  • The gardens are spectacular and the local area is very special. It is peaceful and even though it is close to the coastal Algarve buzz, you feel totally away from it all!
  • There is a solar heated children’s pool as well as the main one. If you would like to have the main pool heated, it is an option for an additional cost
  • Aside from beach days, there is so much to do on the Algarve – sports, historic towns to visit, it is seriously foodie and there are some lovely churches and ancient buildings to visit

Casa Primula has fantastic appeal with its huge plot and far-reaching views. With total privacy, excellent entertaining space and tranquillity in the hamlet of Malhao, the villa is also close to the shops, restaurants and bars in Boliquieme, 4km away and only 14km from the busy tourist towns of Albufeira and Vilamoura.

Also close by is the quaint, historical town of Loule. It offers a characterful historic centre and a popular Moorish inspired, colourful covered market. The town is bustling on Saturday mornings when there is also a farmer’s market and a colourful gipsy market. You might like to visit the town’s churches and the castle. There are occasional folk celebrations in the town which are very entertaining.

There are over 100 restaurants and bars in Albufeira to choose from. There is also excellent boutique shopping, beautiful beaches and a lovely promenade. The main square, Jardim Publico de Albufeira, is the heart of the Old Town with open-air restaurants, cafes and bars and frequent live music. The massive Albufeira Shopping Mall boasts some lovely boutiques and a very useful, enormous supermarket. The nightlife continues late into the night in Albufeira, especially around the hedonistic ‘Strip’. The promenade, lined with vibrant bars and cafes, is perfect for an early evening stroll to enjoy enchanting views of the bay and the spectacular sunsets. The pretty winding lanes of the old fisherman’s quarters lead to the Tunel and Peneco Beaches where brightly painted fishing boats rest on the sand after their day’s work.

You may also enjoy visiting the peaceful, picturesque town of Silves or the Old Town of Faro. Silves was originally the ancient capital of the Algarve. With its imposing red brick castle, Gothic cathedral, ancient town walls, open-air cafes and restaurants and the daily market, Silves is very popular.

Boliqueime offers up a rural slice of the Algarve on Portugal's southern coast. It's right up in the hills, surrounded by pine trees and almond groves. The authentic village atmosphere comes complete with cobbled streets and a square where locals gather to play dominoes. As for beaches and nightlife, Albufeira's within a 15-minute drive.

Despite the laidback setting, there are plenty of activities nearby to keep you on your toes. Vilamoura's just a 15-minute drive away and home to a championship golf course. Meanwhile, ocean lovers can make the most of parasailing from Albufeira's marina or head out on a dolphin-watching trip.


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!
