Luxury Villa Retreat with light contemporary space, solar heated pool & breath-taking panoramic views across the countryside and out to the ocean. Relax in privacy & luxury only 15 mins drive to Lagos marina and town.
Monte das Estrelas is a luxury villa of understated elegance, sitting comfortably in its private grounds as a beautiful Algarvian style house, yet with a contemporary interior of high ceilings, open spaces and large expanses of glass offering breath-taking views across the countryside and out to the ocean.
Located in the hills between Lagos and Portimão, 45 min from Faro Airport, 15 min from great beaches and famous golf courses, the very special property affords absolute privacy. The name of the villa, which means 'Hill of the Stars' is well justified, as the night sky here is out of this world.
The living space is all open plan - the fully equipped kitchen flows well to the dining area to the sitting area as well as a TV area. The sliding doors to the master bedroom enhance the open, loft-like feeling of the architecture.
Ceiling fans, inspired by owners' years of residence in the tropics, provide a gentle cooling flow of air on warmer days - more pleasant than air conditioning. Persian carpets of quality, fine art, library, DVDs, and high speed internet, all help to complete the experience.
The house offers luxury accommodation for up to six - three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is air-conditioned though not required as the hilltop position assures that the house enjoys a warm breeze on most summer days, yet the south-facing terraces are designed to give maximum protection from wind. A gas BBQ is available for the use of the guests.
The pool is equipped with an electric cover which, together with the solar heating, ecologically keeps the pool temperature around 28-30°C in Summer. The 5m x 10m pool is run with a salt water system, the same used by nearly all five star hotels in the world. As a result the pool water is free of chlorine, and the Roman steps at the end afford easy and safe entry.

As the manager of a local property management company based in Lagos, I am proud to represent the properties that we manage on behalf of their overseas owners. We ensure that the standards are maintained, yet in each individual property you can see the personality of the owners shine through.
Everyone in the team works hard so that our guests enjoy their stay. We aim to provide a personal yet professional experience so that everything runs like clockwork. We make sure that all arrival information is exchanged, the property is professionally cleaned and our guests are welcomed by our house managers who will show you how everything works, familiarise you with your surroundings, answer your questions and be on the end of the phone and ready to help in case you need them. The house managers know the properties inside out as they are there every week between guests to make sure they are kept in the best condition.
Airbnb has been a good experience for us so far and we have been fortunate to have had the nicest of guests stay with us. I have also used Airbnb personally for travel with my family and been equally impressed with our hosts!
If there is anything I can help with in the run up to your holiday, I would be pleased to hear from you. Thank you for considering "our" properties!
