Expansive views and charming Mediterranean style await at Quinta Vailima. Set on a stately gated estate that’s lined with green lawns and allées of palm trees, the villa lies between the towns of Almancil and Loule, close to a train station, beach, tennis courts and golf course. From a pool house and guest house to five bedrooms, the property is spacious and inviting.
Soak in the Mediterranean sun in the saltwater pool, relax on shaded chaise longues on the pool deck or sip a glass of vinho verde at one of the outdoor lounge areas. Bring home local seafood for the barbecue, and enjoy it at one of three al-fresco dining areas. Kids will love the play area, and adults can challenge each other on the pétanque court. In the evenings, gather in the home theater, music room, or around the ping-pong table.
Inside Quinta Vailima, the rooms are traditional yet vibrant, with arched doorways and tiled floors leading from one colorful space to another. Both the living room and media room welcome guests with sleek modern sectionals, jewel-toned rugs or drapes and contemporary artwork. The indoor dining room seats ten to twelve at a glass-topped table beside a wide window overlooking the gardens, and the fully equipped kitchen charms with a Provençal blue and yellow color scheme.
Quinta Vailima has three bedrooms in its main house and two in its guest wing. All five bedrooms have air conditioning, and several have TVs and DVD players. The master bedroom in the main house has a queen bed, en-suite bathroom and private terrace. The other two main-house bedrooms have two twin beds and queen and sofa beds, respectively, a shared bathroom and sea views. In the guest wing, you’ll find one bedroom with queen and sofa beds and one with a queen bed; both have en-suite bathrooms. The pool house has an additional bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom, as well as its own living room and kitchen.
Though it’s tempting to spend a stay at Quinta Vailima relaxing by the pool or wandering the grounds, the property makes a great base for exploring the Algarve. From the villa, it’s just a 3-minute drive to the nearest restaurant and a 5-minute drive to a train station, grocery store and the towns of Almancil and Loule. A 10-minute drive brings you to the beach, a fitness facility, a golf course and tennis courts, and the Faro airport is 15 minutes from your doorstep by car.
