Description


This lovely villa was built in 2003 and is in the small and select urbanisation called Magicum, very well situated on a hillside behind Luz. It is only just 5klms west of the market and fishing town of Lagos, and only 4klms to the well-known sandy beach and town of Luz. Other southern beaches, from Burgau and Vale do Boi to Praia da Salema are a 15-30-minute drive and the wild, west coast beaches are only a little further. There are 3 golf courses within a 30-minute drive; Boavista on the near side and Onyria/ Palmares on the far side of Lagos and Santo Antonio / Parque de Floresta to the west. Tennis courts can be hired in Luz and at Santo Antonio/Parque de Floresta where there is also Squash, riding, a gym and a pampering beauty salon. Riding stables are near by at Almadena and at Bemsafrim just a little further but with professional instruction. Both arrange rides in the countryside.

The nearest village is Espiche which is perhaps a mile away down a side road where there is a local shop and 2 or 3 restaurants and bars. En route to Espiche there is a camp site which has a popular restaurant.

Casa Perucas is set in a walled-in garden, with climbers and succulents in a rocky bed around the terraces surrounding the lovely blue swimming pool. This rectangular pool is 10 x 5m and has built-in steps at the shallow end as well as lighting. There is an oil-fired boiler to heat the pool if required (at extra cost in certain seasons, see below). There is a modern fitted electrical pool cover on a roller to be used to help retain the warmth at any season.

There are extensive views from the villa over the countryside to the Monchique hills. The rooms are spacious and the villa is attractive and well-furnished. Extras include TV with BBC and ITV, Wi-Fi, a docking station, table tennis table, darts and overhead fans in the bedrooms.

ACCOMMODATION for 8 people

The front door leads into a high circular hallway; marble stairs curve up to the first floor and above is the featured domed ceiling.

To the right of the hall a corridor leads to the living areas. First is the comfortably furnished sitting room with sofas and armchairs and a slow burning log fire, wide screen TV with DVD and iPad docking station. A wide pillared archway divides the sitting room from the dining room, which has a large dining table and chairs and windows with views out across the garden.

Beyond the dining room is the large fully fitted kitchen. Well equipped and all electric, it has a large fridge freezer, ceramic hob (with 4 hot plates), oven, microwave and dishwasher. There is counter top with 2 stools for children’s suppers.

To one side there is a small laundry room, with washing machine and dryer, and a door to the garden; and to the other, a door opens onto the pool terrace.
The terrace here is covered and furnished with tables and chairs for dining out and there is the built-in gas barbecue.

Back to the hall on the left is a cloakroom and then the bedroom corridor. On the left is a full bathroom (bathtub with shower attachment, basin, bidet and loo), followed by windows and on the right open 2 colourful twin bedrooms. At the end of the corridor is a bedroom with double bed, and bathroom en suite (as above). These three bedrooms have fitted cupboards and French doors to the pool terrace.

The stairs up from the hall lead to the main double bedroom suite, a very large bedroom with large double bed, a walk-in wardrobe/dressing area and a shower room, (large shower, double basins, loo, bidet and heated towel rail). French doors open to a good-sized terrace on the north side with great views and to another covered one on the south side overlooking the pool. Also on this upper floor is a locked storeroom for the owner’s belongings.

The large garage is not to be used for cars and is used as a games room and for storage; there is a table tennis table and dart board (basic bats, balls and darts are provided but do bring your own special ones). There is pool volleyball net stored here, as well as the elderly fridge (from the kitchen when that was replaced in 2017) - useful extra storage for cool drinks. There is a carport for 2 small cars at the side of the villa.

Awesome villa

By Richard Moxley on 16-Aug-2019

Have just returned from 11 days in Casa Perucas and would definitely go back. We went as 2 families(4 adults 4 girls aged 11-14) and couldn't have asked for anything more. Casa Perucas was brilliantly well equipped and really very spacious(more so that the pictures suggest). The pool was perfect for teenage kids and adults alike and we spent hours lazing around the pool, taking part in kid run pool aerobics and playing table tennis in the games room. The villa is situation on a small estate of around 8-10 houses but is laid out so well that you feel like you're miles from anyone with none of the other villas overlooking the secluded pool area. The villa is really well positioned providing great access to Lagos and Praia da Luz. We ate mostly in Luz and found some fantastic restaurants. The villa is also well positioned for activities. While staying we visited the Slide + Splash water park twice, drove up the Monchique mountains, popped to Sagres, went Kayaking in Lagos and visited the local Portuguese equivalent of Go Ape We'd definitely recommend the villa and couldn't have asked for more
