The 5-bed villa is located just outside of Messines, away from the madding crowds, surrounded by lush countryside but still less than 30-minute drive to the coast. From the property, walk along the Via Algarvia, an excellent trek worth doing to enjoy the countryside and allow your mind to wander.
All necessary facilities and highlights like shops, bars, restaurants and main towns are within a small drive from the family villa. The old town of Silves, the former Moorish capital of the Algarve, is only a 20-minute drive away. Silves is a pleasant town on a hill with cobbled streets, restaurants, shops and a castle. Messines, a 7-minute drive from the luxury villa, is a typical Portuguese village with an authentic centre, sunny terraces and charming cafés.
The coastal area of the Algarve is spectacular with its golden rock formations and attractive sandy beaches. If you are looking for an active holiday, there are lots of possibilities for snorkeling, diving, sailing, jet-skiing, walking, mountain biking, horse riding, tennis and golf. You can also go on a dolphin or jeep safari.
Some ideas we recommend doing while staying at this property are: a SUP tour (stand-up paddle) in the Funcho river, Wine tasting, Via Algarviana walking tour, Quad biking, E-bike tour or simply enjoy a massage without even leaving the house!
