This charming detached villa is set on a beautiful quarter acre (1000m2) plot in the peaceful residential area of Monte Canelas in the countryside north of Portimao, yet close to all amenities. The architecture features typical rounded-edge walls and cottage-pane wood-framed windows and patio doors throughout and gives this villa a unique character.
