Villas with a View

There’s something incredibly special about waking up on holiday to a lovely view, as a foretaste of the day ahead. It makes us want to get up and welcome the day, contemplating the visual feast from our rooms with thoughts of breakfast on the terrace or beside the pool. At the other end of the day, a cocktail or evening meal seems to taste even better when the panorama is stunning.

The Algarve is famous for its incredible scenery and many of the villas we offer have breathtaking views across the countryside, the mountains or the sea. So much of the surrounding area can sometimes be admired from the comfort of a sun lounger or terrace chair that it can be tempting never to leave the villa for the entire holiday. Others may feel the allure of the sea, a sandy cove or a countryside walk after an interesting glimpse from the villa.

Whether you prefer seascapes, multi-coloured cliff vistas, mountain views or simply peaceful country scenes, one of our handpicked villas will be your favourite piece of paradise. Before reading, if you are looking for villas in Algarve with private pool, Affinity Villas offers four, six and eight bedroom properties. 

Villa Colina, Carvoeiro

Villa Colina offers comfort and space in a lovely setting with stunning views across the rolling countryside towards the Monchique Mountains. The grounds of the villa are nicely designed, from the delightful breakfast terrace, which is accessed from the kitchen, to the poolside barbecue area complete with double ceramic hob and a kitchenette, perfect for the holiday barbecue specialists!

Casa Inmaran, Carvoeiro

Featuring sea views, Casa Inmaran is an ever-popular choice of villa. The large, attractive and established garden has plenty of areas for relaxing whilst both the pool and barbecue area are likely to be the focal point of a holiday at this property. Only a few minutes away is Marinha Beach, considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal.

Casa Cor de Rosa, Praia do Vau

Casa Cor de Rosa is situated in an enviable location overlooking the beach at Praia do Vau, one of the prettiest coves in the Algarve. The garden and pool areas enjoy fabulous views of the golden, sandy beach and the multi-coloured red, white and orange cliffs for which the Algarve is renowned. An evening stroll on the beach can be followed up with dinner in a local restaurant offering the freshest catch of the day, making this an idyllic spot to enjoy the sun-drenched Algarve coastline.

Casa das Rochas, Loule

Casa das Rochas offers the best of both the countryside and the city with its rural location being only a short drive from the vibrant city of Loule. The villa is perched on a hillside up a country track and has fabulous countryside and distant sea views from the spacious terraces.

Casa Polgoda, Carvoeiro

Situated in a most desirable location, this prestigious ocean-front property lies between Rocha Brava and Algarve Clube Atlantico. The splendid sea views beyond the landscaped grounds offer a breathtaking setting from where this stunning part of the Algarve coastline can be enjoyed. As you would expect, the property is tastefully furnished to a high standard throughout, with all the rooms making the absolute best of the views on offer. A covered outdoor terrace provides shade and an excellent spot for barbecues or simply to enjoy the garden, open sea and skies beyond.

Casa Madrugada, Carvoeiro

This is one of just a small number of properties on this superb development that have the privileged position of being perched upon the clifftop, facing directly out to sea. Casa Madrugada provides the idyllic and much desired holiday bonus of uninterrupted sea views across the pool terrace and lawns, which is a very rare treat indeed. If the lure of the sea tempts you away from the relaxing poolside, there’s a delightful sandy cove some 100m below that can be reached by nearby steps (care should be taken with small children).
