Gated Private Pools in the Algarve

Travelling with young children can be a challenge, to say the least. A common question asked by parents is whether we offer Algarve villas with gated or fenced private pools, providing that extra peace of mind at a time when the whole family needs to be able to relax. All of the villas featured here have private pools which can be secured so that the little ones are not able to wander into the pool area without supervision.

Casa Griffith, Loule

Set in beautiful gardens and with breathtaking views of the countryside and the sea in the distance, Casa Griffith offers guests peace, tranquillity and privacy. The particularly secluded gated pool is reached across the lawn and down steps from a shady, covered terrace. The villa sleeps 7 and is only a 5 minute drive from the bustling market town of Loule.

Casa Corr, Carvoeiro

Casa Corr sleeps 8 and has a feeling of space and calm, with sea views from fantastic covered terraces. The large gated terraces are accessed from the living, kitchen and dining areas and are totally enclosed and elevated above the pool, thereby offering added security for families and a great spot for evening meals. The enclosed pool terrace is accessed via the garden area which also contains a shaded play area for children, complete with swings.

Casa Eleanora, Carvoeiro

This is a grand villa perched on a hillside, commanding superb views over the village. It takes about 10 minutes to walk down to the village centre, with its excellent choice of bars and restaurants, and a few more minutes brings you to Carvoeiro beach. The villa is very spacious throughout with all four bedrooms en suite and a large lounge and separate day room making it ideal for larger parties.

Casa Almajero, Carvoeiro

Casa Almajero sleeps 8 and enjoys an enviable position close to Carvoeiro village centre and delightful beaches, yet it is set in substantial grounds with beautiful lawns and landscaped gardens, offering plenty of space and comfort. Vale do Covo beach is the nearest cove, less than 1.5kms away, complete with beach bar and a dramatic cliff back drop and can be reached on foot in 20 minutes. The village centre with its array of bars and restaurants is also reachable on foot.

Casa Shallo, Carvoeiro

It can be difficult to find 2 bedroom properties so early booking is a must for Casa Shallo, which is ideal for small families. It is well equipped and there’s a small minimarket within walking distance along with restaurants and bars, so there’s no need to rely on a car. The delightful barbecue area with covered dining terrace overlooking the gated pool area lends itself to many a pleasant evening dining out whilst watching the sun go down.

Villa Rosa, Vale do Lobo

Set in substantial grounds in a quiet cul-de-sac and just a short walk to the beautiful beach and the bars and restaurants at the Praca, Villa Rosa sleeps 8 and offers a fantastic retreat in this popular luxury resort. The house is reached by a gated driveway with fully enclosed grounds, offering seclusion and privacy.

An excellent feature is that the house is centrally located within the plot meaning that the pool area can be gated, with its own dining area and mobile gas barbecue and table tennis accessible from the kitchen dining area, whilst the other side of the house offers a fantastic covered terrace overlooking the wonderfully kept grounds.

Casa Erica, Carvoeiro

This 100 year old farmhouse has been carefully restored and retains many of its original features, yet has a modern and well-equipped kitchen and plenty of space and comfort for 6 people. It is set in its own green oasis in the middle of the popular Quinta do Paraiso development in Carvoeiro, within walking distance from the village centre and beach. The dining area opens out on to the pool terrace, with outdoor seating overlooking the walled pool area, which is gated for added safety.
