Property Description

The estate is located in the southern region of Portugal, between the historic medieval town of Silves and the rural village of Estômbar. Set in a quiet and exclusive surrounding along the Arade River, nature has turned this spot into paradise, constantly provided by the freshness of the river and natural springs, protected by the surrounding hills and shaded by trees varying from fruit-trees to exotic palm trees. All of this can be found only 40 minutes away from Faro Airport and 5 to 20 minutes from Algarve’s shops, bars, restaurants, golf courses and beaches. The property is accessible by car, boat or helicopter.

The villa is surrounded by a hedge of small lavender plants and by water. The feeling is as if you are in a castle protected by a moat that circles it. An imposing front door leads to the entrance hall that is decorated with wooden-framed high quality unbreakable stained glass windows, reflecting images of the beautiful flora and fauna. Travertine floor tiles add an element of style from the entrance to the living room and kitchen. Motion sensor lights will turn on automatically. Natural daylight bursts into the spacious living room through a large window and terrace doors. Here you’ll also find a fireplace, a dining area, an open concept kitchen and views to the ground level terraces and swimming pool area. The kitchen can also be reached from the outside or through a pantry, directly from the hallway. Further, on the ground level, you will find a bedroom with hardwood flooring which is fully prepared with multimedia wiring and can eventually turn it into a cinema room or a game lounge. A bathroom with a separate toilet room is available just next to the bedroom and the Spa area. The Spa area includes a sauna and is prepared to eventually have a Jacuzzi and a gym. The gleaming grey Onyx stone flooring with texture gives this room an extra shot of personality. Mahogany wood can be found on the doors and closets, just like in the rest of the villa. You can go outside to the Buddha garden directly from here, through a Japanese gate that was specially designed for this property A laundry room is also available and can be accessed either by the inside or the outside. As a final touch to the ground level, a safe room has been placed underneath the stairway with all control panels of the house, including the video surveillance and alarm system.

The upper level can be reached through a stairway that is made of mahogany hardwood flooring and has motion sensor lights. A window with an image of a traditional Algarvean chimney allows natural light to come in. Upstairs, two spacious ensuite bedrooms occupy the entire floor along with one large terrace that surrounds them. An exterior stairway makes it possible to access this level without interfering with the lower level. With keyless entries, you can enter both bedrooms with a numeric code and lock them with the push of a button.
The spacious master bedroom is characterized by the large windows and the fireplace. The bathroom counter top is Persian red and includes a double sink, a hairdryer and a magnifying mirror. Apart from the toilet, you’ll also find a steam bath for two people, a big bathtub and a walk-in closet. The second room upstairs is also very spacious and enjoys beautiful views to the premises. Its ensuite bathroom comes with a high quality laponia green granite slab to provide more privacy to the toilet area. Climate control is provided by an underfloor heating system, as well as an air conditioning system throughout the villa. Temperatures can be adjusted by the home automation system anywhere in the house. This system also controls all inside and outside lights of the property. Internet and TV channels are provided by satellite.

The spacious terraces and an outdoor conservatory are ideal to absorb the lush and beautiful landscaped gardens which stretch to the river edge and by having your own private lake beach. The property also benefits from a natural infinity-edged pool and built-in Jacuzzi to enjoy the best of the Algarve's weather. Their water is provided by the natural springs of the premises, duly filtered and without chemicals. The pool is made of marble stones. The pumps are controlled by a home automation system which allows the pool and Jacuzzi to be filled or emptied remotely.


The estate can be reached by boat when the tide is high, coming from Silves or Portimão. A quay can be placed as your own private dock. Reinforced dikes protect the property from the tides. This outer ring of protection was one of the most challenging parts of the project. The moat surrounding the villa can be considered as the inner ring - an extra protection in terms of water management and, at the same time, a very decorative item with its cannons. Helicopter Access to the Property The estate has its own helicopter landing site, a very convenient way to reach the property. From the sky, you’ll clearly see the dimensions of the property. No further construction works are allowed on the premises, but there is enough space for projects such as a football pitch, squash, tennis or cricket courts and even a golf course. A maintenance person is essential at the estate. This person should be responsible for the general upkeep and repair of the grounds and equipment by performing a variety of duties on the premises such as water management and dike control, electrical and mechanical duties, maintenance of plants, etc.
