Alvor Algarve retirement villa for sale view2 This elegant living room leads to a terrace, pool area and mature gardens.

With a double-height hallway, spacious kitchen, separate utility room, two reception rooms and four ensuite bedrooms, there’s no shortage of space in this beautifully maintained home. The outside areas are similarly spacious, with garden, pool and terraces to the rear, plus a double garage and tennis court to the front.

Thanks to its versatility, we’re really excited about this property. Inside the villa itself, the downstairs study can double as an immediate extra bedroom whenever needed. Furthermore, because it occupies a double plot there’s plenty of potential, whether you choose to keep the tennis court and work on your serve or use the space to build additional accommodation.

As a Penina Golf Resort villa, this property gives direct access to a verdant championship golf course from its back garden. Having hosted the Portuguese Open many times, Penina offers exceptional golf amidst peaceful grasslands, together with a hospitable club house and five star hotel complex. So although the villa sits in a secluded spot at the end of a gated drive, you can value your privacy without feeling isolated.
