Facing the sea and sunset from three tiers of open terraces, the majestic façade of this whitewashed villa suggests old-world grandeur within. It is certainly a family villa on a grand scale, with a private chapel, oodles of social space, a baby grand piano, antique tiled floors, and vaulted and beamed ceilings. But all this is teamed with an informal atmosphere and airy rooms, furnished for comfort in country house style and sprinkled with personal touches.
The living room has big sofas and bright floral fabrics; a snug sitting room has an open fireplace; six sofas furnish a very contemporary TV room; nine bedrooms are individually styled and include a children’s triple with pretty painted furniture, a huge double under roof rafters and, perhaps an enclave for youngsters, a simply styled two-twin-bedroom suite. And almost every room in the house has French doors out to the terraces, one surrounding the swimming pool, another a huge brick-paved area with sundowner seating and chunky timber tables for al fresco meals. With private steps to the sandy beach below, this lovely get-together villa is a 1km walk from amenities in Ferragudo.
