This is a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom detached property set on a large plot of land with swimming pool, privacy and stunning countryside views. The property has an additional room, that can be converted into a playroom, extra bedroom, studio, office, gym or anything else! Located in a quiet and peaceful area, but only a short 10 minute drive to a bustling marina, the top golf courses of Vila Sol and Vilamoura, miles of golden sand beaches and dozens of fantastic restaurants. The choice is endless. 

As you enter the plot, there is a scenic drive to the house, past a nice green area with beautiful old olive, almond and carob trees. On the land itself, there is plenty of space for gardening or if you prefer nature then you will appreciate the wild flowers and undulating landscape. Alternatively, it has the potential to be transformed into a real playground for a family with kids; to go on a nature hunt, chase butterflies or keep chickens!

When you enter the property, you are immediately impressed with the unusual but characteristic charm of the lounge and reception area that benefits from tremendous views. Built over 2 floors this villa is not your typical villa. Hugging the contours of the land with windows in every direction it gives a feeling of tranquillity, peace and relaxation. Privacy and silence are a rare commodity but this villa offers it.  The lounge has a new pellet fireplace that gives warmth throughout. From the lounge you can make your way to a large swimming pool that also offers glorious views. Surrounded by nature, the purpose built 'al-fresco' areas allow you to drink your favourite tipple while you enjoy sun from morning to evening.

The open-plan layout allows you to take just a few steps to the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is modern, sleek and fully equipped with top brand machines. The kitchen is a very good size and has a big island in the middle, perfect for cooking and socialising at the same time. From the same level, there is another access for a smaller terrace on slightly higher level than the swimming pool. This nook is perfect for breakfast and lazy lunches, as it is so close to the kitchen, and you get the country, pool and distant sea views.

From the dining area, a few more steps take you higher to the sleeping quarters. Here you can find a social toilet for guests as well as 2 en-suite bedrooms and a third bedroom with a separate bathroom to support it. All bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and are a good size with a bright and airy feel.

The property was refurbished in 2022 and has 4 new bathrooms and a brand-new kitchen. It also benefits from new insulation regulating the heat in both summer and winter, keeping conditions perfect and costs down. The villa has solar panels for the hot water giving an Energy Certifcate of 'B'.

The villa also has a basement of 40m2 with separate access and natural light, this is perfect to be used/converted into a games room, lounge, library, workspace, gym or other purposes. 



The location, Benfarras, is ideal for countryside lovers who want to be close to the busy lifestyle, but not right in the middle of it. Have the best of both worlds! Party when you feel like it and then return to your perfect piece of Portugal. 

Vilamoura is just ten minutes drive from this villa. The large marina area of Vilamoura is widely recognised as the central hub of activity for the town. There is a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars around the marina itself and in the back streets of this bustling location. Virtually every taste is catered for with a vast selection of local and international cuisine. Daytime entertainment is unsurprisingly centred around the water activities such as sightseeing tours, fishing tours, luxury cruising trips and water sports. There are great beach restaurants to the west and east of the marina entrance too. However, it is at night when the Vilamoura experience really comes alive, with great bars, a casino and music venues boasting fabulous views overlooking the marina and its huge selection of boats.

There are six fabulous golf courses in Vilamoura (when we include Vila Sol), allowing for accommodations with golf views across the lush green fairways, which twist in and out of the famous Algarve pine trees. The Laguna, Pinhal and Millenium golf courses all offer attractive views and differing challenges for the resort golfer. The Old Course, The Victoria and the Vila Sol golf courses provide a sterner test for the everyday golfer with exceptional designs and sloping greens. The Portugal Masters European Tour event is held at the Victoria course and attracts some of the world’s very best golfers every year. Vilamoura is not only a huge attraction for tourists and many golfers but also for horse enthusiasts at the Equestrian Centre. This all-year-round resort has many attractions to suit every need and has therefore become one of the most desirable areas to purchase a home along the Algarve coast.

  • 5 Championship Golf Courses; Victoria Course (where they play the Portugal Masters each year), The Old Course, Pinhal, Millennium and Laguna.
  • VilaSol Golf course (27 holes) - 5 minutes drive. 
  • Marina - 825 berth marina with bars, restaurants and boutique shops - wins awards regularly for best marina in the world. Blue flag for cleanliness. 
  • Two beaches - either side of the marina - Falesia Beach and Marina Beach - both have nice beach bars and lovely soft golden sand. 
  • Equestrian Centre - there are usually 4 or 5 events a year with the biggest prize in Portugal. 
  • Nature Reserve - nice to walk around and try to spot a kingfisher! 
  • Boat trips - dolphins, watersports, fishing 
  • Tennis Academy - tennis courts and paddle courts
  • Mini Golf - 36 holes - in a Roman Courtyard!
