It feels as though you could float away at this contemporary villa sitting right on the cliff edge in Garajau. You'll smell the salty air as soon as you arrive, with views of the Atlantic being this home's focal point. Inside, it's a chic space with plenty of room to enjoy each other's company. There's a brightness to the open living space, thanks to the sea reflecting on the cool white walls, and a fabulous double-height ceiling with two seating areas. Wall to wall glass opens the rear of the home to the outdoor terrace, allowing indoor and outdoor living to blend as seamlessly as the sea and the sky. Spend your days by the private pool or exploring the nearby area before heading home to rustle up a meal in the glossy, high spec kitchen and enjoy long, lazy meals as the sun goes down.
