sandy bay cottage

7 nights villa rental from £1,359 sandy bay cottage algarve

With painted roof rafters, cool tiled floors, and gorgeous coastal views, there’s a real ‘beach house’ feel to this airy little 4 bedroom cottage.

Furnished throughout with enchanting simplicity, in a classic coastal colour palette of blue and white, Sandy Bay Cottage is a single storey property with two or three steps linking rooms in its split-level layout. Equally ideal for family or friends, the cottage has one double bedroom, two singles and a further bedroom with an oversized single bed); a country-style kitchen with modern appliances; and a lovely living room forming the heart of the house (with high ceiling and painted rafters) 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 al fresco lunches and dinners.

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.

Faro airport is 60km away.
