A mere 10 minute walk away from the sandy beach of Villa Gingeira, Villa Nova Chanteria is ideally located in the Algarve region of Portugal, with breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding landscape. The charm of century old fishing villages that overlook numerous coves and bays is rivalled by a multitude of shops, nightlife and restaurants that serve authentic local delicacies.
This magnificent villa boasts seven en-suite bedrooms. The master king bedroom has access to a balcony with panoramic views over the treetops and coastal views where you will be able to enjoy the country’s most favored indulgence, port. The open plan kitchen and living area is crowned by an open stone fireplace, perfect for a family gathering on a cool summer’s evening.
Take a step outside and you will be greeted by sweeping views over your walled garden set around a twelve metre heat enabled pool and jacuzzi. If you are looking to work off all those local dishes then why not go through to your own private tennis court. Boasting air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout, maid service twice a week will ensure the villa is maintained at its resort standards. Have your kids play volleyball in the garden or focus their aim in a game of football; equipment is on-hand for your enjoyment.
The beach of Praia de Centeanes is the ocean gateway to the local town offering a plethora of amenities including watersports and historic walking tours. A marine park and water park are just a short drive away also. If you choose to join the local fisherman, then why not grill the local catch on your barbeque in the outdoor lounge whilst looking past the oversized garden to the treetops and ocean views.
Villa Gingeira is perfect for a getaway with friends and a splendor for journeys with the family.
Situated just under an hour from Prado Airport, Carvoeiro is a picturesque fishing village inhabited as early as the Ancient Roman Empire when tuna fishing was the sole provider for the economy. This beach hamlet offered protection to the fisherman of the time and has since developed into a quaint white-washed village complete with all the modern amenities one could ask for.
Ocean erosion has been the natural designer of water spouts and grottoes, perfect vantage points for marine life spotting including dolphins in their pods of twelve. Why not get closer to the action and go scuba diving, or if you prefer not to get wet, then try a swing in Golf Vale de Milho, a par-3 course designed by Dave Thomas who himself took part in the Ryder Cup not once but four times.
The fact Carvoeiro is surrounded by beaches means it has maintained its old school scharm, with a population of less than 3000 people. Praia de Carvoeiro is the main beach just behind the town and is sheltered by dominating cliff faces on either side, local bars and cafes just a few steps away in case you need a cool beverage. Walking tours will provide perfect vistas of the ocean and will most likely lead you to Fort of Senhora da Conceição dating back to the 17th century.
Be it seaside fun, cultural discovery or delectable indulgence, Carvoeiro is the ideal destination for a Portuguese getaway and perfect base for a journey through the Algarve region.
