About the villa

Sea views | Walk to the beach | On the outskirts of the village

From its painted roof rafters to its cool tiled floors, there’s a real ‘beach house’ feel to this airy little villa. Furnished throughout with enchanting simplicity, in a crisp colour palette of blue and white, the single storey villa has two or three steps linking rooms in its split-level layout. Equally ideal for family or friends, the cottage has one double bedroom and two singles and a bunk bedroom; a country-style kitchen with modern appliances; and a lovely living room forming the heart of the house, with a dining area, comfy sofas and satellite TV. A door opens out from here to the sunny and spacious terrace, with enticing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Arade River mouth, deck chairs set sleepily under tree shade, and a big dining table for leisurely lunches or starlight suppers. 

And just below this broad veranda, a brick-paved sun terrace, partly in palm shade, surrounds a cool infinity pool. A sloped, stepped and gated pathway leads from Sandy Bay Cottage to the huge soft sand beach, just 300m below. Shops and restaurants in Ferragudo are a walkable 1.2km away, and tennis, golf and water sports are all within 4km.
