Villa Arresia sits in the Dunas Douradas resort, just a short walk from the resort’s beautiful sandy beach and the blue waves of the Atlantic Sea. Everything about this modern villa is spacious, from the large bedrooms to the expansive living areas and the vast outdoor terrace. From the moment you arrive, the property feels relaxed, with an air of ease and simplicity that is reflected in the modest furnishings and minimalist styles.

The front door is reached via a flight of steps, with the entrance floor offering three spacious bedrooms. These bedrooms include two doubles and a twin room, all sharing a modern family bathroom. Each room has its own character, some with a more traditional feel and others adopting more modern styles, yet they all feel warm and welcoming, perfect for unpacking your belongings and making yourself at home. Because of the large scale of the rooms, you can easily enjoy moments alone or as a couple without feeling cramped or enclosed. The master bedroom is on the upper floor, boasting its own en-suite bathroom, alongside another en-suite double room. Both of these rooms have beautiful balconies so you can open the doors and enjoy the morning sun whilst you relax in bed – breakfast in bed is always an option!

Moving through the rest of the villa, the space opens out and become more social. There is a bright and airy lounge, with doors leading elegantly onto the terrace. This large space boasts a huge corner sofa where you can all fit together, curling up to watch the TV after busy days exploring the Algarve. The kitchen and dining room adopt the same large scale, with room for everyone to spend time together in each space. In the fully-equipped kitchen, you can get all hands on deck to prepare some family favourites, then moving to the dining room to eat together as a group, sharing stories and laughter away from the distractions of day to day life!

Stepping outside, Villa Arresia offers a mix of covered and uncovered spaces, all maintaining the easy elegance of the villa’s interior. Adjacent to the living room doors there are comfy outdoor sofas with a view of the pool, ideal for escaping the afternoon sun. You can lounge by the pool, dine al-fresco and walk barefoot in the grass, soaking in every moment of your holiday and letting any worries ease off in the ocean breeze. Villa Arresia is perfect for a laid-back holiday away, offering simplicity for your stay, so all that is left to do is relax.
