Villa Ava is a 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom villa recently refurbished, to a very high standard. Set in the heart of Vale do Garrao bordering the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve which you can walk through to Praia do Garrao and Praia do Ancao beaches.

The villa has a large lounge living area, dining room, utility room and newly fitted kitchen. The villa is fully air conditioning throughout and wifi internet and Lazer TV which has a good selection of international and UK programs and sports.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor with ensuite bathrooms and two on the ground floor sharing a family bathroom. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and have TV's.

Please note that there are 4 steps after the entrance hallway down to the bedrooms and another 4 steps down to the living room and again steps up to the first-floor bedrooms. We do not recommend this villa for toddlers or people with restricted mobility. Contact us for more information.

The outside garden is a fully fenced garden with a lawned and seated area with charcoal BBQ and for all the family. There is also a large heated saltwater pool. The pool is 7m x 6.5m and has a depth from 1.1 to 1.9m. The pool can be heated at an extra cost and we can also provide a pool fence at an extra cost too. The garden and pool area overlooks the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.

The very popular Praia do Garrão beach is less than a 15 minute walk from Villa Ava through the nature reserve. This is a long and sandy beach, where you can hire out sunbeds and enjoy great food at some of the best beach restaurants around such as Julia’s and Izzy's. As well as great food, these restaurants do great sunset sessions too. The beach is popular with families as well as with visiting celebrities, so keep your eyes peeled, you never know who might be on the sunbed next to you.

The award-winning Dunas Douradas resort is less than a 10 minute walk from the villa and all the action at the Vale do Lobo Praça (home to a choice of restaurants and bars) is a 20 minute. The property is only a 5 minute drive to both Quinta Shopping, (the central hub of Quinta do Lago with restaurants, bars and shops, bank, ATM.) and Vale do Lobo Parque do Golfe (where you can find shops, ATMs, wellness centre, bank, post office) and close to other developments such as Varandas do Lago.
