Casa Melides is an astonishing property that offers peace, tranquility, luxury and the most serene panorama. It is located in the majestic mountains of Grandola in the stunning Alentejo region, 5 kms from the charming town of Melides and 10 minutes away from the beach. The villa’s plot is very extensive and stunningly beautiful. You will wake up between valleys and mountains, breathing the freshest of air and feeling totally away from the hassles of everyday life. The villa boasts the most spectacular of terraces with breathtaking views over the lush greenery to the sea and the lagoon of Melides. This idyllic haven offers four gorgeous bedroom suites and beautifully finished living spaces. It is ideal for groups of friends or a large family who want to immerse themselves in nature and totally relax.
The lucky guests staying at Casa Melides quickly fall in love with its dreamy ambience, its magnificent estate and its heart-stopping views. The incredible, far reaching landscapes and stunning, tranquil beaches of the Alentejo are mesmerising. With golden fields waving in the breeze, wild unspoilt beaches waiting for those first footsteps, immense plains sprinkled with cork oaks, ancient olive trees and vineyards and hills dusted with whitewashed houses, the area has now been discovered by the rich and famous. You will wonder why you didn’t discover it a long time ago! Throughout this stunning landscape, ancient walled towns rise up with castles, gardens and courtyards which offer Arab influences and some with a history going back to the Bronze Age and the Roman Empire. Visitors enjoy many outdoors activities including kayaking, surfing, hiking, windsurfing, scuba diving, hunting for boar, rabbit, hare, quail and wild pigeon and fishing together with fine dining and superb wines.
Melides is filled with the scent of pine and eucalyptus and boasts a stunning coastal stretch and a white cobbled central square clinking with glasses and smelling of fresh fish sizzling over coals. It is little wonder that the likes of French designers Christian Louboutin and Philippe Starck, the German artist Anselm Kiefer, the British painter Jason Martin and the Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen are moving in.
Casa Melides offers a beautiful infinity swimming pool which sits on a gorgeous deck in the middle of this rural wonder. The feeling of freedom and bliss is indescribable. Plush loungers sit by the pool. Though you can take your holiday books, you will find it hard to take your eyes off the stunning scenery. Another stunning wooden deck is set in the middle of trees, the perfect spot for alfresco dining under the stars. Next to the villa, you can relax on sumptuous outdoor sofas enjoying the shade on the veranda. Another terrace offers an alternative view and a fantastic selection of outdoor furniture. The gardens are simply amazing, full of mature plants and trees.
The villa’s interior decor is calm, elegant and beautifully finished. There are two large living spaces with beautiful stone floors, comfy furnishings and a variety of artwork on the walls.
Large doors open to the terraces and drown the spaces in brilliant natural light. The dining room is wonderful though you may choose to eat outside most of the time. The chefs in your group will be delighted with the stylish kitchen and its excellent appliances. There is a separate laundry.
Casa Melides enjoys four bedroom suites, all very tasteful in decoration. The master suite is fabulous with a sumptuous double bed and a large ensuite bathroom. There is another characterful double room and two twin bedrooms. These all enjoy beautiful garden views and beautifully fitted ensuite shower rooms. You will not have any guests disappointed with their suite or this heavenly spot.
