An elegant curved façade and imposing wooden doorway flanked with Victorian cast iron lanterns make a fitting entrance to this luxury Portuguese villa.  The elegance of the exterior is echoed throughout the property's interiors as well as in its manicured gardens and terraces.  Well-equipped with a high tech surround sound system, cinema room, sauna, steam room and table tennis table it has all you might need to keep you entertained during your stay in the Algarve.  The sweeping sun terraces and private infinity pool are blessed with the peace and tranquility of the countryside and overlook the verdant valley below, while the Atlantic sits neatly nestled on the horizon.

This beautiful property is set over two luxurious floors. The ground floor holds a sophisticated open plan living and dining area. The living area's furnishings have a subtle oriental feel and a scattering of eclectic contemporary artwork. Fully retractable glass doors open out to the calm surrounds of the glass lined sun terrace, an ideal spot to relax and take in the views. The property has four beautifully appointed bedrooms all of which have en suite bathrooms and two of which have direct access to the sun terraces and infinity pool. For families with little ones an additional sofa bed has been added to one of the bedrooms for extra flexibility. Beautiful gardens dotted with fig, citrus and cypress trees, your very own vineyard, a large infinity pool and a shaded BBQ dining area all combine to make the exteriors of Villa Saranza the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the sunny climes of the beautiful Algarve.
