Casa Refugio is a stunning luxurious 6 bedroom Premier Villa located amongst the exclusive Penina Estate, Alvor, as part of the western Algarve, Portugal.

Upon arrival at the property, private security gates open onto a sweeping driveway, bordered by exotic palms and cycads. Ahead you will see the impressive domed entrance.

Moving the charming courtyard, guests are lead to the centre of the villa into the expansive drawing room. This area is cool and calm with the formal dining area and doors to the covered pool terrace.

The west wing of the villa offers a state of the art kitchen with open plan island arrangement facing the kitchen dining area. Entering the east wing guests will find all the bedrooms and bathrooms. Each bedroom has been individually styled offering picture windows or doors overlooking the grounds.

Outside the grounds are luscious and well established. There is a 12m x 6m pool with the separate pool house offering a bar, sitting area, snooker table and shower room.

The amazing outdoor BBQ area (by the pool house) has two separate cooking sections with a traditional bread oven and sink and bathroom.

The villa is situated in the grounds of the famous Penina championship golf course along the 15th green. The Le Meridien Hotel, Penina Golf Club and tennis courts are only a very short distance away from the villa. The Hotel has bars, restaurants, hairdresser and all the usual Hotel amenities. The nearest fine sandy beaches, Alvor and Tres Irmaos, are about 10 minutes drive to the East, and those of Lagos and Meia Praia about 15 minutes to the West. There is an enormous selection of restaurants within a 10 kilometre radius. Riding, lawn bowls and squash are also nearby. The busy city of Portimao, where you can enjoy the shopping facilities and restaurants is also only a five-minute drive from the villa.

Casa Refugio is a must for clients who want to savour the quality of outdoor living during their holiday and relax amongst the lavish style and tranquillity of this spacious villa.

    We spent two weeks in this amazing villa. It looked fantastic on the website, but was even better in reality. Every detail has been thought of in this villa. From a kitchen supplied with everything you would need and very high quality appliances, to fantastic seating area outside (where we spent many a long lunch time!), a brilliant BBQ and of course fantastic pool.

    Alvor is very pretty with a great number of excellent restaurants. There are also many beautiful beaches, which are all about a 10 minute easy drive from the villa.

    But to top all of this we were made to feel so very welcome by the Premier Villas team.

    This was the most relaxing holiday we have had and would highly recommend staying here.

  • Sue Carter

    I cannot fault the villa in any way shape or form, an enjoyable and plesent stay just outside Portimao town.

  • Mariella

    This villa is nothing short of magnificent - the décor, the space, the excellently equipped rooms! It is also reassuringly secure. It was a perfect, luxurious and spacious setting for our wedding and the days before and after. It was extremely conducive to a wonderful, communal and entertaining holiday. It is by far the best villa we’ve had the pleasure of staying in, and we look forward to returning one day.

    Furthermore, it has been simple to communicate with the Premier Villas team over the past 7 months and that has made it a much less stressful experience.

    Thank you to all for making our experience so special.
