The villa was built in 2011, using fabulous, natural materials and with interior designers waving their magic wands. The villa is surrounded by multi-level terraces, all beautiful and stylish. The shaded alfresco dining terrace is amazing with an outdoor kitchen and barbecue together with astounding countryside and river views. The outdoor kitchen enjoys a fridge so you do not need to go inside to top up glasses. You need to have some champagne chilled before you enjoy a luxurious soak in the quality hot tub, another enchanting outdoor spot with spectacular scenery. The generous 8m x 4m saltwater swimming pool is surrounded by wooden decking and top-of-the-range sun loungers where you can enjoy your holiday books and relaxing views of the river and the hills.

Inside Casa Arrochi, the decor is luxurious, tasteful and striking with modern artworks and vibrant colour splashes. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors offer stunning views and drown the spaces in natural light. The open plan living space is absolutely beautiful with sumptuous furnishings, a welcome wood-burning stove, a large television with international channels, a DVD player, an Ipod dock, elegant dining furniture and a sensational kitchen. The kitchen is incredibly stylish with polished concrete counters, gorgeous cabinetry and the very best of appliances including a stainless steel fridge, a large five-burner stove, a microwave and a Nespresso coffee machine. Doors open to the incredible social alfresco lounge and dining space.

Each of the four bedrooms enjoys lavish beds, beautifully adorned with hotel quality linens and delightful throws, stunning artwork and beautiful features. There are gorgeous beamed ceilings, pretty arches, striking contemporary lighting and beautiful views from the windows. Three of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one of which enjoys wheelchair access. Each of the bedrooms enjoys a beautifully tiled bathroom, all completely different in style. One of the bedrooms also boasts a loft where two extra guests can sleep on request and for an additional payment.

Casa Arrochi enjoys a tranquil, secluded location on the beautiful Arade River, just 3 kilometres south of Silves. Silves is a gorgeous town with a fascinating history. This ancient Arab kingdom inherited a stately outline, the epitome of which is its red-hued castle, the largest castle in the Algarve. The castle enjoys wonderful views of the town, its fertile fields covered with orange trees and the beautiful River Arade. Silves was conquered from the Moors in 1189 by King Sancho I but the Moors were only fully expelled in 1242 by King Afonso III. The ancient mosque was transformed into the town’s cathedral, starting in Gothic style and completed during the Baroque period. Opposite the cathedral is the Igreja da Misericordia, much of which dates back to the 18th century. Silves is a crumbling place brimming with narrow, cobbled streets lined with lively alfresco cafes. It boasts a Moorish-style garden which is open daily to visitors. A defunct cork factory is now home to a couple of museums and some bars and cafes. In August, the town hosts a lively beer festival. It is good to visit the town in the morning for its colourful riverfront market, near its 13th century bridge.

Not far away is the holiday resort of Portimao and the next door Praia da Rocha. This stunning beach stretches for two kilometres, backed by huge cliffs. Portimao started out as a trading post and commercial port. Its riverside setting has reinvented itself as a tourist-loving town with excellent shopping, wining and dining. It smart waterfront promenade is sprinkled with palms, gardens and open-air cafes. Boat trips can be taken along the Arade River and out to sea to explore this magical coastline. Opposite Portimao lies Ferragudo, a typical fishing village on the banks of the Arade River. This traditional, charming village offers pretty whitewashed houses with typical chimneys and a gorgeous church on the top of the hill.

Just twenty minutes away from Portimao is Lagos with it historical hotspots, first-class collection of neon-lit bars and stunning four kilometre stretch of sand, Meia Praia.

Lagoa is an ancient town of whitewashed houses that used to rise above a lagoon. Now only the name remains as well as the local delicious wine! The town is very traditional. The cultural centre of Lagoa was originally built in 1710 as the Convent of Saint Joseph but it fell into disrepair and opened as the culture centre after a major renovation. You will discover exhibitions of paintings, photography and sculpture. The Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Luz, which means Church of Our Lady of Light, is beautiful and worth a visit. The Lady in Red art gallery is located in an unused industrial space of a big wine producer. It is a stunning display of modern art.

Near the town Estombar you will find a park called the Municipal Park of the Springs. It surrounds a spring of the Arade River and is wonderful for picnics. It is also a great place to swim and makes a change from the beach.

Situated some 7 km inland from the magnificent coastline for which this municipality of the Algarve is renowned, the small city of Lagoa has a rural feel that contrasts significantly with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of its popular seaside resorts.

The idyllic town is charmingly traditional and only a short distance from the popular Portimão. As well as being close to some of the best beach resorts in the region and the historic town of Silves, Lagoa holidays have ample charms of their own.

Inserted in a traditionally agricultural and important wine-producing area, Lagoa lies on a small hill rising above flatlands that allegedly once held the lagoon that gave the city its name.


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!
