Villa Hibiscus, a “boho-chic villa just steps away from the sand” of Albufeira’s Galé beach, is the latest addition to the Vila Vita Collection, a series of luxury villas and beachfront residences owned by Vila Vita Parc in the Algarve and rented out for “secluded sanctuary-like retreats”.
As Vila Vita points out, “the garden gate of the villa opens directly onto Praia da Galé beach, one of the longest and loveliest stretches of sand in the Algarve, making Villa Hibiscus a rare find in Portugal, where most beachside properties are kept in private hands”.
The villa is filled with “one-of-a-kind items sourced from around the globe, including batik textiles, hand-carved Buddhas and artisan-made furnishings” and is inspired by the “bohemian London style that represents a care-free atmosphere”.
While it is located on the edge of the beach, the villa also provides “discretion with its carefully designed gardens”. Another notable feature is the villa’s elegant pool located along the beach’s dunes.
The 600sqm villa features five bedrooms, all with “their own style” and bathroom. There is also a kitchen completely equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and a living room/dining room leading directly to the terrace.
Guests can also enjoy services such as housekeeping, butlers, yacht trips and personalised meals cooked by the resort’s chefs.
“While the villa is cocooned from the outside world, the bars, boutiques and restaurants of Albufeira and Guia are within easy reach, meaning you can fully enjoy the local Algarve lifestyle,” the resort explains.
“For back-to-nature experiences, the nearby Salgados nature reserve, a protected stretch of coastal wetlands, promises excellent birding, walking and biking opportunities,” Vila Vita says, adding that all the amenities of the resort, including the restaurants, bars and spa – as well as top-shelf chefs, DJs, security, or anything else you may need for an in-villa event – are “easily accessible”.
