Villa North Star is a very impressive villa located on a quiet residential avenue just off the main Ayrton Senna road in Quinta do Lago. A recently built 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom villa, North Star sleeps 8 people and offers a truly superb base for your Algarve holiday. The villa is beautifully decorated – it manages to be both opulent yet understated and comfort is always a priority (there is air conditioning throughout, included in the rate). The weather in the Algarve is conducive to outside living pretty much all year round, and Villa North Star is in a league of its own when it comes to pool side lounging, alfresco dining, relaxing on the sun terraces or enjoying the leafy shade of the garden.
The spacious entrance hall leads to the large, bright and very welcoming open plan living room. Soft deep sofas invite you to relax and the sliding doors allow lots of lovely sunlight to enter as well as giving access to the large terrace that surrounds the house and there are outside sofas overlooking the pool. In a clever use of space and design, there is a separate TV room with Lazer TV and UK TV channels adjacent to the main living room, which has sliding glass doors that double as the room’s walls. The living room leads to the dining room – again with plenty of natural light streaming in and with access to the terrace – with a glass topped table that seats eight and which in turn leads to the kitchen. This is a bright room with a central stone topped counter and access to the outside dining area (with gas BBQ). The fully fitted kitchen is well equipped with large hob, oven fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Just off the kitchen and living area is a separate work/office space, again with glass doors and walls – which doubles as a great nap area for junior visitors!
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor. The double bedroom has fitted wardrobes, air conditioning and an ensuite shower room, while the twin room ensuite has a bath. The twin room also has air conditioning.
The master double bedroom is on the first floor – a large room with access to a private sun terrace that overlooks the pool, garden and golf course. The ensuite is large with natural light and a separate bath and shower. Also on the first floor is a second double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with separate shower and bath.
On the basement level of Villa North Star there is a games room with a pool table and table tennis. Next to this room there is a utility room with washing machine and dryer.
Villa North Star stands on a large plot and the gardens here are spacious. There are tall pine trees, birds of paradise flowers and plenty of lawn area. There is even a small pond and water feature complete with frogs. The pool is large (12m x 5m, maximum depth 2m15) and pool heating is available at an extra charge. There is plenty of space for sun loungers by the pool as well as a shaded gazebo area. The pool is accessible from the terrace that surrounds the house and there are protective gates from there to the pool area to stop little ones from wandering.
All in all, Villa North Star offers everything you could want in a quality holiday villa, and when you step outside its gates you have all the amenities of Quinta do Lago nearby, offering a range of restaurants, nightlife, leisure and sports options.
Quinta do Lago is one of the most luxurious areas on the Algarve coast. Stunning architecturally designed villas and resorts sit in harmony within the 100’s of hectares of natural pine forest and award winning landscaped gardens, all intertwined with 4 golf courses.
Facilities include a floodlit tennis courts centre and water sports centre. If you need a bit of retail therapy, a bite to eat or even a late night drink and dance, the ’Q’ Quinta Shopping is a the entrance of the Resort. The Q Centre facilities include fabulous boutiques offering exclusive designer labels and interior designers showing off object d’art. In addition, there are some appetising international restaurants providing a choice of cuisines and the lively bars of Cubo, The Cheeky Pup and The Melting Pot.
The objective in Quinta do Lago was to create a luxury estate offering owners and guests privacy, tranquillity and seclusion, combined with an active social and sporting life and a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities.
The environment at Quinta do Lago has UNESCO protection because of the 18 hectares of the Ria Formosa Natural Park which falls within Quinta Do Lago boundaries. The Ria Formosa is a tidal inlet that is a protected home of migratory birds and a wetland of world importance. The Quinta Do Lago / Ria Formosa is one of the last unspoilt coastal zones in Europe.
