With a heated pool and hot tub in the enchanting garden, Casa Corliss is the perfect home for those looking to relax and unwind in a wonderfully calm and private environment!
The grandeur of the villa is apparent as you approach along the long driveway to this magnificent, breath-taking beauty among the dense forest. And the interiors enjoy an equally refined, tasteful décor, with vast open-plan spaces and light, bright and welcoming rooms. The living room is the large, central hub of the home, with two large sofas facing one another, perfect for social events and special celebrations. The décor is classical, elegant and utterly sophisticated, adding a real sense of charm to your holiday, in particular in the formal dining room which seats twelve in total. There is a second living room in a similar style with a sofa in front of the fireplace at one end and a second sofa and TV at the other, perfect for a quiet moment. Wi-Fi and air-conditioning throughout will ensure your absolute comfort and connectedness.
The wonderful fully-equipped kitchen is incredibly spacious, with rooms for endless chefs to prepare a meal on the huge range cooker, and leads directly to the outdoor dining area, making alfresco meals that bit easier! Finally, there is a games room on the first floor with a pool table, table tennis table and a table football set for countless nights of fun, laughter and a little healthy competition!
In total there are five spacious and welcoming bedrooms, each enjoying a private bathroom. There are two rooms on the ground floor and two on the first, with the fifth in the separate apartment. All five rooms have two large single beds which can be joined on request, adding maximum flexibility. All five bathrooms are bright and elegant with a unique design, and each has underfloor heating and a towel warmer. On the lower floor you’ll find the private apartment, with a second large kitchen, lounge and a bedroom, great for those who like that bit more space and privacy.
Out in your breath-taking garden a large terrace envelops the fantastic private pool, and there’s even an outdoor spa with a fabulous hot-tub on the lawn! There’s also tons of casual seating areas, including sofas, chairs and sun-loungers, for soaking up the sunshine in this beautiful, mild climate. There is a fabulously shaded BBQ and dining area on the terrace, for alfresco meals in style!
You’re just 10 minutes from the beach and only 25 minutes to the thriving, vibrant streets of Faro. While you’re very near to the action of the Vale do Lobo resort, the location remains calm and quiet, making it ideal for a little outdoor activity, be that a peaceful stroll or even a bike ride.
Nestled in the fabulous rural landscape of the Algarve between so many interesting towns and natural spaces, Casa Corliss is in the ideal spot to explore the fascinating history and sublime landscape of the region.
Just 7km away is the first-class golf-resort of Vale de Lobo, one of the first tourist resorts ever to be built in Portugal, and the site of the first five-star hotel in the Algarve! With two 18-hole championship golf courses, Vale de Lobo is the dream destination for any aspiring golfer.
Outside of golf, the Algarve is an excellent destination for other hobbyists. With a vast coastline that meets the powerful Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is a true paradise for the keen surfer, or indeed even those looking to try if for the first time, with plenty of surfing schools all along the calmer sections of the coast. And even for those less enamoured with surfing, the beaches of Portugal are well worth a visit for their beautifully clear waters.
The Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, is famous for its picturesque scenes of vast blue skies casting a warming glow on the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, with untouched bays framed by jagged Limestone rocks at every turn. While the southern coast caters to every need of its visitors, to the West and the rugged interior the land remains largely untouched, with less development and endless intersecting of historic villages, hilltop castles and beautiful churches.
Portugal itself is a small, fascinating country at the most Western point of mainland Europe. The capital, Lisbon, is known for its lively nightlife, with endless bars and clubs full of fun-loving locals and tourists alike, but also has plenty of fascinating history (check out Belém, jam-packed with monuments!) and undulating terrain, famously termed the ‘city of the seven hills’.
