With fabulous views overlooking the spectacular 18-hole Parque da Floresta golf course, this townhouse is within a ten minute drive of some of the most beautiful beaches and the timeless fishing villages of the unspoilt Western Algarve. You don't have to be a golfer to enjoy a stay here, but if you are you will benefit from a 40% discount on green fees.

Spacious and clean villa with terraces on every floor (3). Small, but good pool to share in front of the villa. There are several great beaches nearby, on the south coast and in the west which are very good to surf. Especially the west coast is stunning! We enjoyed the very good restaurants in Salema and Burgau and also Lagos... more

A stunning villa set in beautiful surroundings. Quality accommodation - we wanted for nothing. The kids had a ball as the pool was steps away so they could alternate between swimming and Cbeebies! Having our own sunbeds just steps away from the pool was fantastic. Extremely well equipped with excellent maid service. We loved breakfast on the roof terrace -... more

Clean, fresh, modern villa with all mod cons. We particularly appreciated the unexpected extras such as the iPod dock, beach equipment and WiFi. The location is ideal; an unspoilt area of the Western Algarve, close enough to beaches, restaurants and supermarkets without feeling overwhelmed by other visitors. Our children (10 and 9) particularly enjoyed checking out all of the many... more

Additional amenities & feature info
Our townhouse, which is only 7 years old and is located in Quinta da Encosta Velha - a self contained 'village' within the Parque da Floresta Resort, - has been built and finished to a very high specification. It's beautifully furnished and has air conditioning in every room, yet is cosy and warm in the winter with central heating and a wood burner in the lounge. The layout features split levels, with steps up from the lounge to the kitchen, and down to bedroom 3 on the middle floor and bedrooms 1 & 2 on the lower floor. For this reason, it might not be suitable for families with toddlers.

Highchairs, cots and extra beds are available for a small additional charge. Please enquire about the possibilities for groups of more than 6 people.
