The top 5 luxury villas in the Algarve

Glass of Champagne in hand, you step through the large glass doors onto your private terrace gazing out across the acres of lush countryside that surround your villa. Later you take a prime spot on the sun lounger beside your infinity pool to soak up the hot summer sunshine. Then, as the sun sets in the evening, you relax on the terrace whilst enjoying a delicious meal prepared by the chef. Choose a luxury holiday villa and this dream lifestyle soon becomes a reality. Offering a laidback approach, as well as more space than hotels typically offer, villas are perfect for families or large groups of friends. The Algarve is a popular destination with some stunning properties. Here is a selection to give you something to dream about.
