People Who Live in Glass Houses

by Sun’s Dragon    

“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” is an old saying, but I don’t foresee anybody living in these villas throwing much of anything except maybe a party or two!

Living in a “glass house” in the Algarve will ensure that your life is filled with sunshine and your outlook will be positively perfect. Take a peek at these properties that are both glass and class.

Heart of glass in Vilamoura - €980,000

This superb, glass filled, contemporary villa borders the famous Millennium Golf Course in Vilamoura; there are actually three golf courses on the doorstep, and the fabulous marina and the grand Tivoli Victoria Hotel practically next door. The villa itself is spacious, light and airy, with four bedroom suites and an open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The basement has a utility room, games room and garages. Set in 900m2 with terraces, swimming pool and gardens, this villa is due to be completed in May 2014.
