The ‘Solar das Laranjeiras’ (“Manor House of the Orange Orchard“) is a fabulous villa on a private gated plot. It is not far from the Pine Cliffs area with all its facilities, bars and restaurants and the beaches of Barrancos and Falesia. It is only a few minutes by car to the attractions of Albufeira.

The layout and spaciousness of the house are really well designed for everyone to have enough privacy and to spend a pleasant holiday. Driving through the private entrance gates parking is easy in front of the main door.
