Newly built villa with stunning sea views and private pool 5 minutes’ drive from Fuseta beach. Spacious open-plan living area and massive floor to ceiling glass doors extends the living area outside

Solar powered ECO air con, underfloor cooling / heating with near passive house specification throughout make this place incredibly comfortable

6x3m Pool is heated by a solar wall that the water cascades over

Country location but only 5 minutes’ drive from lots of good restaurants, bank & shops

The space
The interior kitchen and BBQ area are very well equipped. The outside kitchen includes a gas BBQ, fridge and sink next to the pool. The open plan living area looks out over the infinity pool, uninterrupted countryside and stunning sea view. The indoor/outdoor flow of this house is exceptional and is surrounded by landscaped gardens. All set in a 5 acre property.

The house is designed from the ground up for low carbon living, using latest building techniques and materials and generates its own electricity from an array of solar panels, with excess power being fed back into the grid. The Algarve is a great place for this sort of system having around 300 days of sunshine a year.

The infinity pool has an integrated solar heating system to increase the water temperature. The water cascades over the top edge and flows down south and west facing walls that are covered in black tiles. The tiles heat up in the sun and the water absorbs the heat. The water then gets pumped back through the filter system into the main pool. It can be quite effective on sunny days. For example, this afternoon (19th April) the water temperature was 24 degrees C. In comparison the sea temperature was 17 degrees C.

Where you’ll be

Fuseta, Faro District, Portugal

One of the things that makes our place special is our proximity to the ocean, fabulous lagoons, and beaches perfect for family fun, or quiet picnics on a secluded bit of beach.

Our local beaches are islands that enjoy lively ocean waves on one side and tranquille lagoons on the other.

The neighbourhood is safe to walk around day or night and we have one restaurant within walking distance which does a wonderful piri-piri chicken or a very tasty garlic prawn and rice dish.

We are also ideally positioned for visiting the local towns of Olhao, Tavira and Moncarapacho.

The seaside town of Olhao with its fabulous seafood markets and restaurants is just 10 minutes to the West and Tavira, with its beautiful architecture and churches 15 minutes to the East.

Moncarapacho, 10 mins to the north, comes alive for its bustling markets, but otherwise offers a more peaceful alfresco dining experience in the summer months and of course fabulous Fuseta is just 5 minutes away.

Back at the villa after some sightseeing, it's great to relax by the pool in the beautiful gardens. The garden is private and not looked on to by anyone else.

Anglo / American married with 2 teens and living in the Portugal for 30 years. We love our outdoor life style here in the sunny Algarve. We work from home and spend our leisure doing water sports, entertaining either on our patio or picnicking on the island & traveling, often camping. We couldn't live without our boat, garden, family & friends. Favorite book would be an autobiography; favorite food is grilled fish in local restaurant near the beach or chilling with a good glass of Portuguese rose!! We often have friends and family come to stay from all over the globe. Life motto: Carpe Diem.
