This very special house is an eye-catching combination of traditional Portuguese architecture and modern interior design. Largely single storey with a classic terracotta tiled roof, the villa also boasts a distinctive turret featuring slender arrow loop style windows outlined in classic Algarve blue. Forest green shutters frame the villa’s French doors and windows and there’s a pretty loggia-style canopy with shaded seating along its length.
Local stonework of varying shades of terracotta and ochre has been cleverly incorporated into the design both of the house and the gardens, with russet-red rockeries providing the perfect backdrop for a range of sculptural tropical plants, ferns and stunning water features. The impressively large grounds not only comprise manicured lawns, mature olive and pine trees and flowering shrubs but also a pristine private tennis court so you can brush up on your forehand and challenge each other to a set or two whenever you please.
Indeed, Casa das Pedras is the ideal residence for those who relish the outdoor lifestyle; the large heated swimming pool is a key feature, with an adjacent paddling pool and spacious patio laid with stone tiles. As well as plenty of relaxing sun loungers, an outdoor dining suite is provided beneath the shade of a pretty timber gazebo, complete with a built-in barbecue, hob, fridge and sink so that cooking and dining alfresco can soon become part and parcel of your day’s activities.
Inside, the house is tastefully decorated throughout in soft shades of cream and white, with cool terracotta flooring and chic painted furniture. The bright, spacious lounge, with its plump sofas and armchairs and a cosy fireplace, is split level to the adjacent dining room where a smart contemporary table seating ten offers a more intimate setting for supper. The smart fitted kitchen is immaculately presented and boasts all the gadgets and appliances you’ll need to rustle up some great meals during your stay.
All five of the delightfully serene bedrooms have their own en suite bath or shower room, including the luxurious master suite with its indulgent spa bathtub and king size bed. They are all thoughtfully positioned with direct access to the house’s lovely patios and views across the pool and garden towards the coast.
If you still have energy left after a swim and a knock-up on court, there’s also a fantastic games room with a TV, Playstation, pool table and table tennis table so there are plenty of additional challenges to share with your family members and friends.
Among Casa das Pedras’ many charms is its wonderfully tranquil, rural location with stunning panoramic views. Driving, cycling or walking in the surrounding countryside will introduce you to another side of the Algarve, virtually untouched by tourism. Just 2.5 kms from the house is the small village of Boliqueime with a number of bars, shops and restaurants and it’s just 8 kms to the town of Paderne. When you want to feel the sand between your toes, the gorgeous golden sands of Praia de Falesia is only 20 minutes by car and you can easily reach some of the Algarve’s famous golf courses and leisure resorts from here too.
