Details

Villa in Torre, near Armação de Pêra, Central Algarve, Portugal - Sleeps 6 (3 Bedrooms)   

Newly Built Luxury Villa with Pool set in Secluded Landscaped Gardens with Sea Views

Rural Location, 5 Minutes By Car To A Well Equipped Town With Miles Of Sandy Beaches

High quality property for the discerning, fitted with top of the range furniture and equipment 

The perfect place for a relaxed and luxurious holiday

Designed as a luxury home, Poppy House is a recently completed detached property within a secluded yet not isolated rural valley, with sea views and 5 minutes by car to a well equipped town with miles of sandy beaches. Electrically operated entrance gates lead you over a traditional cobbled driveway to a carport and parking for at least 4 cars, plus turning area.

The house will delight your senses with leather sofas, custom made kitchen, handmade dining table, original art work, privately commissioned feature stained glass window, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, electric blinds, and double glazed windows with mosquito frames.
Outside there are various terraces and sunny and shaded seating areas, a secluded BBQ area and a heated salt water pool.

Enjoy 1820 sq metres of fully fenced stunning landscaped gardens, planted to encourage local wildlife and boasting many mature trees. Wake up to the sound of bird song and enjoy breakfast under the shade of the carob bean trees on one of the sunny terraces, with the blue Atlantic ocean sparkling in the distance. Picnic or barbeque by the pool at lunch time - and watch the vivid sunsets whilst enjoying some excellent Portuguese wine. Do as much or as little as you want in complete tranquility and comfort.

We are returning visitors to Poppy House and it never fails to please. On arrival at the villa, the first thing that catches your eye is the stunning stained glass window with beautiful poppies. The house is accessed through its own secure entrance gate so you immediately feel at ease and very safe. The grounds of the Villa are stunning with plenty of space for parking and the house itself has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. The house has everything you could possibly ask for and a very nice touch from Daphne (the owner) is that she supplies a generous stocked fridge with necessities for you to settle in straight away and have a light lunch/dinner depending on what flight time you have taken to Portugal. This is really welcoming and is very gratefully received. The outside grounds are very special as well - the garden is beautiful and very well kept with gorgeous flowering plants and many fruit trees. There are many different areas whereby you can sit and relax in the shade or have breakfast / lunch in a different location. There is also a separate BBQ area with another dining table. Poolside itself is well equipped with enough sun loungers for everyone and large parasols to keep you shaded. There is a poolside shower to use to keep the pool as clean as possible. The views across the valley are very pleasant with beautiful sunsets and the whole house is very private. Although this review is based on my family of 3 staying here, I have stayed here with some close girlfriends and would like to go with another small family as the Villa is spacious enough to ensure that you can all have private space if needed. We are due to go back in 3 weeks and the whole family can't wait! We are looking forward to more relaxing days at the Villa and exploring more in the local area. I can't recommend Vila Papoila highly enough - it is clean throughout, very safe and secure and has been finished to a very high standard. A perfect retreat!

A truly special place which will provide amazing memories.

It is a house full of space and light, where each room flows effortlessly into another. It is really exclusively furnished and equipped, with the most comfortable beds and sofas we've ever had on holiday! The super salt-water pool is large enough to really swim in and the garden is beautiful and very well maintained! The English owners, who live further down the valley were faultless hosts, welcoming and engaging, on hand to help, but at the same time thoughtful and discreet. We have felt very much at 'home' in this wonderful villa and we look forward to returning soon.

Places of interest

The neighbouring town of Albufeira is the nearest “hotspot”, where there is plenty of nightlife in the many clubs and bars. Another gem, with lots going on, is the nearby picturesque village of Carvoeiro. There are many pretty and traditional villages nearby.
During the summer days, along the coast there are various watersports on offer locally and a trip to the caves in a local fishing boat is a “must”. There are also many pretty harbours and marinas within an easy drive of the villa and for fun time there are two large water parks within a 7 and 20 minute drive of the villa. There is also a zoo and marine park within a 10 minute drive.

Nearby is world's largest sand sculptures exhibition from May to October. There is also a Nature Reserve within 6 minutes drive of the villa, with many species of birds all the year round. The adjoining footbridges and dunes provide interesting and easy walking, with “hides” to pause and observe the wildlife. Walkers can also enjoy the unspoilt countryside in the foothills of Monchique, a picturesque 30 minute drive away.

The Algarve is a dream for golfers and there are numerous excellent and varied golf courses within 8-30 minutes drive of the villa. A good website to check out is: algarve-golf.net.

Just 10 minutes away from the villa is a very pretty and interesting shopping arcade with a 9 cinema complex and over 100 shops to satisfy all tastes.

If you prefer culture to shopping, there is much more to interest people, including the history of the area, which is fascinating. For instance, a 20 minute drive will take you to Silves, the Moorish capital of The Algarve, with its castle and archaeological remains.
Travel due west to Sagres and Cape St Vincent and you will be on the most south westerly tip of Europe, where the history and legends date back to Neolithic times.

So you need not just soak up the sun, but can explore and learn too. Everyone can find something to enjoy in this very special part of Southern Europe.

“A stunning house in an idyllic location.” Vila Papoila (Poppy House) is a stunning home from home. The house is really well equipped and beautifully decorated, it really is over and above what you would normally find in a rental. There are also lovely personal touches like a welcome pack and a great information pack about the local area and amenities. It's nestled in beautiful gardens and is incredibly peaceful and yet it's only 5mins from great bars, restaurants and shops and a number of fantastic beaches. I went with friends and we had a great time, there's lots to do in the local area but we were also just as happy at the house, lying by the pool. Would definitely recommend it and can't wait to stay again
