Why the Portuguese Villa Trevo in Algarve should be your next isolation destination
The ocean facing property is the perfect private escape for large families
Set on low cliffs overlooking the crystal blue waters of the North Atlantic Ocean is Villa Trevo in Algarve, Portugal. The picturesque former fishing town is an increasingly popular piece of paradise that experiences long spring and summer days, and pleasantly cool autumns and winters that make it perfect for holidaying in all year round. Algarve is a natural flora and fauna haven with its protected Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, which is home to all sorts of wildlife and fishing village of Cacela Velha, while its hinterlands are filled with fresh fruit orchards and the charm of historic castle towns.
Villa Trevo is a coastal beachfront property that is three storeys of Asian- inspired cosy comfort with Mediterranean-style interiors featuring blue, green and white as its dominant colours. Adding to the worldly milieu of Villa Trevo are its numerous art pieces and décor from all over the world, such as African artefacts and black mother-of-pearl planter pots from Vietnam.
The five-bedroom luxury residence sees a sprawling master bedroom with walk-in closet with attached outdoor rain shower on the first floor, and a second, equally magnificent master bedroom on the second floor. There are three extra guest rooms available on both floors. All bedrooms are equipped with a plush king-sized bed, en suite bathrooms, lounge and terrace for uninterrupted views of the ocean or a lush garden with gazebo, perfect for a night of stargazing.
Making this holiday lodging a real family home are the inclusions of two fully equipped kitchens, and two living and dining rooms. For added comfort and opulence, the lower floor includes a fitness room, sauna and steam bath. This home was built not just for families but to entertain as well, and the private pool on the first floor, and relaxing Jacuzzi and barbecue on the rooftop terrace are sure to be epicentres to nights of hosting and partying through the summer.
This private villa also includes the comforts of world-class accommodations with its included services. Be welcomed with VIP treatment with flutes of champagne, local fruits, the aroma of fresh flowers, and a beverage basket of coffee, tea and water. There is also daily housekeeping and turndown services, as well as a change of towels and linen twice a week, and pool cleaning weekly.
Dining options include a full breakfast buffet in the restaurant, or a personal and private continental set up in the villa. Should more services be needed, a butler is on call to ensure a fuss-free and enjoyable stay.
