Stunning villa combining epic views with refined living.
The cicadas are always singing at Casa Childs, a private haven nestling amid five acres of pine, cork, orange and lemon trees. Boasting a fabulous tennis court, a mosaic-tiled swimming pool and a terrace that stretches the entire length of the villa, Casa Childs is one of the Algarve’s best-kept secrets.
Casa Childs is particularly popular with families and large groups who want to stay far from the madding crowd, but also have easy access to Portugal’s outstanding beaches and golf courses. The south coast is half an hour’s drive away, the rugged west coast about forty minutes. The world-class Longevity spa (‘Most Life-Changing Spa’ at the 2013 Tatler Spa Awards) is just five minutes away and the beautiful Roman spa town of Caldas de Monchique is a short walk. Neighbourhood restaurants abound and foodies are delighted by the famed local cuisine.
The villa itself was designed over forty years ago by its British architect owner and remains in the family today. The style is elegant and unpretentious: English designer fabrics, Portuguese ceramics, granite mined from the local hills, a Mark Wilkinson kitchen. There is a book and DVD library, a printer/scanner and Wi-Fi throughout. Central heating, a gorgeous log fire, the option of pool heating and the universally-adored maid, Rosaria, make this truly a house for all seasons.
Casa Childs is located near Caldas de Monchique, and has been designed as a traditional holiday home. It enjoys a nice view over the Algarve to the sea, and is set in 10,000m2. of established terraced garden with flowers, shrubs and trees. A large swimming-pool and a tennis court make this villa specially interesting for a group of friends, or a family with children.
