Holiday Rental House
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 enjoy the challenging par 72 course. Other sport and leisure facilities available include a shared pool right outside the patio doors, a football and tennis academy (depending on the season), excellent mountain biking and Spa Floresta - an oasis of calm and tranquillity. With your comfort and convenience in mind, we have tried to provide everything you will need during your stay, such as two maid service visits per week, and even beach towels so you don't have to fill your luggage ...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.

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...More

About the neighbourhood
The authentic fishing villages of Burgau and Salema are both within a 10 minute drive. Going West, the coast road then leads you to the Atlantic-facing Vila do Bispo before winding back to the most westerly point of the Algarve, Cape St Vincent, on the other side of historic Sagres and its fortress. From there, the coast road north takes you to Aljezur, a surfers' paradise in the heart of the Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve.
How to get there
Airlines including EasyJet, British Airways and Monarch all fly to Faro airport, which is less than an hours drive away. Flights are available from most UK airports. All the main car hire companies are represented at Faro airport
