Pool & Gardens

The villa & casinha sit within their own grounds of 20000m2 (5 acres) offering unparalleled seclusion & breathtaking views due to its hillside location. Privacy & seclusion are guaranteed by our gated entrance. At night the gate pillars & driveway illuminate automatically giving a magical aura.
The pool terrace is a sheltered sun trap, facing south. The terraces are paved & afford generous areas for sunbathing, dining, or simply wandering about! Padded sunbeds can be positioned in full sun or beneath a shady pergola. A shady dining area for 8 is supplemented by other dining tables in the shady courtyard garden, & on the barbeque terrace.
The table tennis area is a new addition for 2012, providing a covered play area for players of all ages. Also new for 2012 is a boule pitch.
Our home designed solar heating system for the pool has been so successful that we have designed & built a spa – hot tub – paddling pool adjacent to the pool, so that people who cannot swim, or choose not to, can enjoy the relaxing warm spa bubbles.
There is ample covered shade, poolside furniture & dining facilities for any size of group. A built in barbeque stands on a separate terrace nearby. At night the pool terraces can be floodlit and, together with lighting in the flower beds & lanterns around the villa & casinha, create a special after dark ambience.
The Quinta dos Sonhos is in a conservation area where wildlife proliferates. The hoopoe is just one of the visitors to the gardens.
