Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

This immaculate villa offers bright and contemporary living and sleeping accommodation with a real sense of luxury.

There's a great feeling of space - with the full height living areas and stylish mezzanine.

The spacious, open plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen layout is child-friendly with French doors opening onto the fully-enclosed shaded terrace and garden, with pool.

The living areas are furnished in a mix of cream leather sofas and beech furniture, adding to the light and airy feel of this super villa.

The interior design emphasises the many modern architectural features such as the curved wall in the dining area with three long, narrow windows, the mezzanine landing balustrade and wooden ceiling in the full height sitting room.

A huge corner sofa, with lots of cushions, in the sitting room has plenty of room for the adults and children to cosy up together and there's a large flat screen television with satellite channels, plus a DVD and CD players for entertainment.

In the large dining area there is a coordinating beech table, seating up to six adults, with black leather chairs.  Of course the family may prefer to eat al fresco on the south-facing terrace overlooking the swimming pool.

Whether it is preparing a simple breakfast or creating an evening meal, there's plenty of room for the whole family to get involved.  Fully-fitted with contemporary beech units, black granite work surfaces and a handy breakfast bar, it's equipped with all the usual mod cons.

The study, with a sofa and computer with free Wi-Fi for guests to use, is the ideal escape for a quiet moment out of the sun.

A relaxing double bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a bath and shower over.  This bedroom is perfect for grandparents who might like some space and privacy.  Alternatively, the room has plenty of space for a cot if being used by a couple with a baby.

Upstairs, with child safety gates at the top and bottom, the mezzanine landing offers a great extra living space for adults to unwind or older children to play.

With comfy seating and a wide screen television with satellite channels, it's a great hideaway and has doors opening onto the large roof terrace with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside.

Also on this floor are two more bedrooms and a separate modern shower room.

One bedroom is a double with an en suite shower room, plenty of space for a cot, and doors to the roof terrace.

The other bedroom is a twin, perfect for children, also with access to the roof terrace. The spacious roof terrace is furnished and a great space for grown-ups to relax when the children are asleep.

Parent points:

  • Although there are child safety gates and a safety guard to prevent climbing, young children should be supervised by an adult when on the mezzanine landing.
  • Children should only be allowed on the roof terrace when supervised by an adult.

Outdoors

Villa Graciete's large, fully-enclosed outdoor area has lots to appeal to adults and children alike, with plenty of space to relax and play.

A terrace - with fabulous open countryside views - surrounds the swimming pool with sun loungers and decked areas at both ends with cafe-style table and chairs.

The 10m x 3.5m heated pool (additional charge for the heating)  is perfect for swimmers and splashers and has steps and a shallow end, plus an electric cover to control access when not in use.  There's also a useful poolside shower.

Immediately outside the villa, the south-facing terrace has a shaded area with a dining table and chairs.  There's also a gas barbecue for rustling up outdoor meals.

The villa's gardens are professionally landscaped and maintained, with a small grassed area to the side where toddlers can play in the shade.

At the front, the villa has parking for up to four cars plus a small garden and lawn.

Parent point:

  • The front driveway opens onto the road, which is only used by resort traffic, but children should be supervised at all times when at the front of the villa
  • Take care if you are adventuring further afield, as there is a limekiln monument on the grounds, where there is a drop; it is in a remote part of the resort but if you do come across this, please take care

The resort offers a whole host of fun-packed activities for the kids and a choice of sporting or relaxing opportunities for grown-ups.

 

Tennis Club

Enjoy a game of tennis during your holiday on one of the four floodlit synthetic grass courts available to hire.  The resident coach also offers tuition for all ages and abilities and you can hire tennis racquets.

Children's Playground

The fully-enclosed children's playground features plenty of fun equipment, like slides and swings, to keep the children amused for hours.  Grown-ups can keep an eye on little ones from the wooden benches.

Mini Football Pitch

The grassed mini football pitch can be enjoyed by adults and children and is perfect for five-a-side football or a knockabout with friends.

Spa Treatments

Book in for some well-deserved pampering and choose from a wide choice of treatments.  Individual and tailored week-long wellness programmes are also available, designed to optimise your energy levels and sense of well-being.

Exercise Studio

The exercise studio offers group classes and activities including Yoga, Zumba and Nia dance.

Babysitting Service

The babysitting service, for an additional charge, is perfect if mum and dad want to enjoy some time to themselves

And more...

The resort has a number of other activities and added extras including mountain bikes to hire for exploring the resort's trails and local area, table tennis, plus for an additional charge, home-cooked meals, chef service and supermarket delivery.

What's Around?

The resort is on the edge of the stunning Costa Vicentina National Park in the heart of unspoilt Algarve countryside, a short drive from pretty villages, lively towns, beautiful sandy beaches and family attractions.

Burgau

Burgau is the nearest village to the resort and just a five-minute drive from the resort.

It is home to a small supermarket and shops and a number of restaurants, bars and cafes, many of which are child-friendly.

The long, golden sandy beach is popular with families and has an excellent beach bar.

Praia da Luz

The pretty whitewashed village of Praia da Luz is less than a 10-minute drive to the east. 

Here you'll find a wider selection of restaurants and cafes, two supermarkets, plus a chemist, dentist and doctor's surgery.

There is also a lovely low-key beach where the The Beach Hut Watersports Centre offers a host of activities including sea bird and dolphin-watching trips as well as a water sports kids' club for eight to 16-year-olds with sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, kayaking and banana rides.

Lagos

Lagos is the largest town in the are and a popular tourist destination, but still manages to retain its traditional charm.

A 20-minute journey from the resort, there is plenty to enjoy and explore.

The five kilometre long golden sandy beach is perfect for children and there's a 'pirate ship' - an old Portuguese Cravelle - for sea trips.

The Saturday morning farmers' market - Portuguese style and very different to those in the UK and France - has lots of delicious home-grown produce.

While the busy fish market, which has a top floor restaurant with stunning views over Lagos Bay, opens early every day.

If you are feeling peckish there are a lots of child-friendly restaurants and pavement cafes lining the town's cobbled streets.

In the summer evenings head for the town square to watch the street entertainers.

For the children, there's the popular Lagos Zoo, the fun Children's Science Centre or go-karting at the Autodromo.

Loule

For a more traditional taste of Portuguese life, take a drive to the pretty town of Loule, famous for the imposing walls of the 13th century castle

About an hour from Villa Olivia, there are art galleries, a museum, several interesting churches and lots of cafes and shops in the criss-crossing network of cobbled streets.

The daily market is a lively affair and there are popular music festivals during the summer.

Golf

The Algarve is famous for golf, so if you fancy a round there's no shortage of courses close to the resort with several suitable for skilled players and those less experienced within a short drive of Villa Graciete.

And More...

The local area offers a host of other fun family activities from sailing and scuba diving, pony trekking and bird-watching to Portuguese cookery and painting lessons.
