This magnificent retreat has been recently built to an exacting standard in the smart and exclusive resort of Quinta do Lago. Set in immaculate gardens within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants and a short drive from the beach, Gisella is the ultimate luxury holiday villa.
Sophisticated, spacious and exquisitely presented, this gorgeous property is both private and accessible, enjoying a privileged position at the northern fringe of Quinta do Lago, close to one of its three championship golf courses.
The elegant, dove grey exterior is traditional in style, however the interior décor and furnishings are a tasteful blend of contemporary and classic design. Floor to ceiling patio doors, inlaid ceramic floor tiles and a colour palette of cool neutrals create a feeling of light and space throughout the ground floor. The main living room is a visual delight, with huge, crushed velvet sofas, glamorous oversized lamps and ornaments, and eye-catching canvases. It’s a beautiful room in which to entertain or simply relax after a strenuous day on the fairway.
The adjacent dining room seats eight in great comfort and style, with double sliding doors leading through to a fabulous kitchen incorporating a central island unit and state-of-the-art appliances.
The lower ground floor houses not only a utility room but also a superb TV room, complete with sofa, bean bags and a large flat screen TV with DVD player – ideal for a family movie night or to give older children their own space to chill out.
Two of the house’s four stunning en suite bedrooms are located on the ground floor with patio doors leading onto an outside terrace while the two first floor rooms have their own balconies overlooking the garden. Each has its own distinctive style, colour-coordinated with sumptuous fabrics, velvety rugs and contemporary furniture while their exquisite en suite bathrooms are appointed to the highest specifications, complete with complimentary toiletries, slippers and bathrobes.
One of Gisella’s key features is the wonderful garden room with its charming red brick ceiling, a built-in barbecue and sink and stylish dining suite for alfresco eating at its best. Here, you can relax in the shade with a chilled beverage as your steaks and sardines sizzle away on the grill.
When you’re ready for a cooling dip, simply step outside onto the glorious terrace, furnished with chic sun loungers, and plunge into the beautiful pool, surrounded by pristine lawns, umbrella pines and clusters of agapanthus swaying gently in the breeze.
Whether or not your golfing talents are worthy of Quinta do Lago’s world-renowned championship courses, the villa’s own putting green will allow you to hone your skills in private and, when you’re ready to play a round, it’s just short drive to each of the resort’s courses.
If the beach holds more appeal, Quinta do Lago’s 3km stretch of golden sand is also a few minutes’ drive from the villa, along with a wide range of activities from cycling and yoga to tennis and hiking. You can walk to Bougainvillea Plaza for your daily provisions as well as the exclusive designer boutiques of nearby Quinta Shopping.
For a family or a group of friends looking to indulge in Quinta do Lago’s unrivalled attractions from a truly luxurious base, Villa Gisella is very hard to beat.
