Villa 9a is a three bedroom air-conditioned villa situated on the Quinta da Saudade.  The Quinta da Saudade is a small British-run estate of privately-owned villas.  It occupies approximately twenty-four acres about five miles west of Albufeira.

The Quinta nestles in the peaceful country setting of an old hillside farm estate.  It is surrounded by orange, almond and olive trees and is about forty-five minutes’ drive from the Airport at Faro.

The nearest beach is less than two miles away.  It is a magnificent long stretch of sand, bounded by dunes, where you can escape the crowds, even in August.

There are two swimming pools, a children’s play area and shallow pool.  The Quinta also has a tennis court, table tennis, petanque and crazy golf in the orchard.  On site is a restaurant and bar in the old farmhouse.  And there is a pool bar open throughout the day.

The Riding Stables at the Quinta da Saudade have some fabulous horses that are available for gallops across the dunes or slow hacks through the countryside.

There are attractive country walks in the vicinity and there is a wetlands nature reserve nearby with a wealth of bird and plant life not commonly found in the UK.  Purple Heron, Little Bittern, Alpine Swift, Bee Eater, Red Necked Night Jar, Azure Winged Magpie and more.

The villa is semi-detached and laid out across two floors.

The upper floor contains a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a twin bedroom with separate bathroom.

The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dishwasher and microwave amongst the usual appliances.

The living area has a satellite television with all the UK channels and film club with access to over a hundred films, boxed sets and music packages and DVD player with video library.  French doors open on to a terrace with views over the hillside opposite, the nature reserve and the countryside to the sea and cliffs at Armação de Pera.  The large terrace contains furniture for al-fresco dining together with loungers and a built-in barbeque.

There is a door to an internal staircase to reach the lower level which forms a self-contained twin bedded studio with a separate kitchen and wetroom. In the studio there is a plasma television. The Studio has large tilt or turn French doors leading to a smaller terrace with views over the gardens, countryside and to the sea.

The villa also has a large roof terrace with superb panoramic views. However, this is kept locked as it has low parapets and could be quite dangerous especially for children. The key will be provided upon request which implies that full responsibility is accepted.

There is a separate utility room with a washing machine.

Maid service is provided three days a week.

The villa is air-conditioned throughout and this is included in the rent except from November through till March when it is charged as is the electricity and logs.  The villa has wireless internet.

Guests will receive a complimentary starter pack in the villa.  This consists of eggs, milk, butter, sugar, coffee, tea, bread, drinking water and white wine.

The rent also includes the use of all the amenities at the Quinta da Saudade.  There is a small charge for the tennis court.

Bookings are on a weekly basis from Thursday to Thursday, but if your holiday has to start on specific days, please let me know – we can be flexible.

The nearest beach, just over a mile away, is the largest on the Algarve and there are many sandy coves down the side roads.  Just a few miles away is the tourist town of Albufeira where there are a large number of restaurants, bars and shops.
