We live in Luxembourg but this secret spot in the South of Portugal is our favourite holiday escape for relax and enjoy good weather throughout the whole year !
Sophie purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Sophie chose Porches
The nature surrounding the property provides a sensation of peace even in the busiest periods in Algarve. Still, you are incredibly close by the beach, the golf courses and all the amenities for some perfect holiday period.
What makes this Villa unique
Personally, I fell in love with the palm trees around the stunning swimming pool. Golf in the morning, beach in the afternoon, swimming pool by sunset while you wait for the barbecue dinner. Can't get any better than that!

Private, peaceful, perfect!
In a private location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, this charming villa has everything you need for your holiday. Our teenage children loved the pool (not gated and steps so ideal for them perhaps not smaller ones) and the WiFi was fantastic for them.
Though you feel like you are in the countryside the villa is actually only 5 drive minutes from an excellent supermarket and 10 minutes from loads of beautiful beaches.
Communication from the lovely owner Sophie was excellent.
Highly recommended! *****
lovely villa in peaceful setting
A great place to stay.
Fabulous pool, spacious villa, no neighbours, great countryside views.
It is a bit hard to find the villa but that is only a problem the first time.
Also its a fair hike over rough ground to the village but frankly eating at home in the evenings is a joy with the bar b que by the pool or the well equiped kitchen.
The owner was very helpful and the housekeeper who cleans once a week was very good.
We stayed in Jan and though we sat in the garden in the evenings the log fire was welcome after dark.
The surrounding area has many attractions but you do need a car to make the best of them.
Spend some time here - we loved it.
Well laid out, secluded villa with gorgeous pool
Lovely villa, big bedrooms, large lounge space, kitchen had all the facilities you need. The area is SO quiet it's so relaxing to have no neighbours creating noise and not to have to worry about the children shouting as they enjoyed the pool. Reasonably close supermarket with plenty of choice. Would definitely recommend that you have a car for your stay as not really feasible to walk anywhere.
Perfect Family Holiday
Fantastic villa in a beautiful part of the Algarve, only 5-10 mins to the beach resorts but in a peaceful quiet location. Great pool and patio area, and 2 sun terraces meant you can always find the sun (or shade). We used the villa as a base to explore the beautiful coastal areas before returning to the pool to cool off before BBQ dinners on the terrace.
Lovely, quiet location, great villa
Really enjoyed my stay, Sophie provided loads of useful information before I arrived which was much appreciated! The house is in a great location, a short driving distance from supermarkets etc., but extremely calm and restful. Great (big) pool, everything you need in the villa too. Totally recommend it!
Wonderful, remote place with great pool
We spent a wonderful time with a group of friends in the villa, which is quite a lot bigger than it appears online. The pool is amazing, with lots of space around it, and the location of the place was perfect for us, as we had absolute privacy and calm the whole week we were there - good to have a car for mobility. Porches itself has some good restaurants and super markets are close by as well. Definitely a recommendation!
