Outstanding, luxury 4 bedroom villa overlooking the 12th Fairway at the 18 Hole Championship Golf Course at Parque da Floresta. Casa Palmeira is an established villa with mature gardens and orange, guava and lemon trees offering shade from the heat of the day, as well as an unusual green tiled, heated swimming pool. Probably the best location on PDF - in our possibly biased opinion!

Parque da Floresta offers not only golf, but also tennis courts, football academy, spa, swimming pools, restaurants and golf driving range. The resort is located in the Western Algarve, within easy reach of numerous stunning beaches, timeless fishing villages and unspoilt countryside. It sits between Lagos to the East and Sagres to the West. Further to the West is Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point of mainland Europe.

Sleeps 8+baby. 4 bedroom villa with private infinity pool and hot tub, in mature gardens overlooking the 12th fairway. Casa Palmeira is an established villa with beautiful gardens and various trees. Inside it is freshly decorated and comfortable, with beautiful traditional furniture and high quality bed linen and towels.We provide free wi-fi internet. It has all the comforts of home, with a few extras. The lounge has french doors opening onto the upper terrace, and has large leather sofas - great for relaxing on in the evenings. The large screen TV has freeview and a DVD player. It also has a well stocked library - over 1200 books at the last count, all available for you to read on holiday, as well as many DVDs.. In the study, which is air-conditioned, there is a further large screen television, with an Xbox 360 Games Consul, and a small selection of games. Why not bring your favourite game with you?

The kitchen is well equipped with electric ceramic hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, and dishwasher, along with lots of John Lewis plates, cutlery, pots and other essential kitchen kit. The utility room houses the washing machine and tumble drier, and another fridge freezer - just in case one isn't enough!

The master bedroom suite is on the same level as the lounge etc, and is air conditioned. It has a beautiful cherry wood superkingsize bed and furniture. The bathroom is light and area, tiled in traditional Portuguese style, with a spa bath, toilet, bidet, shower cubicle, and twin basins.

Downstairs there are 3 bedrooms - two of which are air conditioned, and another kitchen! One bedroom has an en suite showerroom, again with Portuguese tiles. The villa is child friendly, and we provide a Mothercare travel cot and bedding, and a Mothercare high chair, at no extra cost. Over the years, we have rented villas all over the world for our own holidays, before we bought Casa Palmeira, and we have tried to incorporate all the best things we have found in other villas, and to make it a comfortable and relaxing holiday home. Our commitment to you is that we make it as good as it can be, constantly improving and upgrading. This year we have replaced the towels, two fridge freezers and the dishwasher, and have upgraded the garden furniture, as well as building the amazing hot tub. It is just a spectacular addition to the holiday experience. In case there are any problems, we have an excellent team of property managers looking after the villa. Samantha and Maria are lovely English ladies, and we've yet to find a situation they can't deal with, calmly and sensibly! Hopefully you will never need them, but it is good to know they are there.

Thank you holidaylettings for taking wonderful photographs of our lovely villa. We were delighted to welcome your photographer, Phil, and are now very pleased to have the 'holidayletting were here' sticker on our listing!

Casa Palmeira is a great place for a family holiday. There is air conditioning in 3 of the 4 bedrooms and the study/library. The living-room has a wood burning fire for cooler evenings, and has 3 leather sofas, including a 'UFO' or 'Love-Seat' with lots of cushions, for total relaxation. The 2 double bedrooms have new bedroom suites - a fabulous super-king size cherry wood sleigh bed in the master suite, with matching furniture, and a king size bed in the double suite downstairs. The other 2 bedrooms are very comfortable, with beautiful cool tiled floors, and we have just put new single beds in the twin room. The study has a wide screen TV, freeview channels, and a broadband wi-fi, and printer.

The emphasis in the whole house is comfort and convenience, with all you would expect from a family home, with perhaps a few extras. The villa is child friendly, but the pool is not fenced, so care needs to be taken at all times with small children. There are plenty of supermarkets within easy reach of the villa. The nearest (Intermarche) is only 2 minutes drive from the entrance to Parque da Floresta, and is well stocked with everything you might need for self catering. Even bigger supermarkets can be found in Lagos. The Restaurants in Parque da Floresta provide lots of variety, and the Italian Restaurant even has a takeaway facility.

For the children, there is the Football Academy, and the tennis courts with resident coach who does group lessons or individual lessons. In the summer there is a weekly tennis competition for different age groups of children, and is always hotly contested. There are children's clubs, which provide a safe environment for children to have fun, learn and make new friends. These are run by PDF staff. Further afield are Zoomarine and Aqualand water parks.

In the study, we have now installed a broadband wireless internet connection, with black and white printer. We have not provided a PC, so those wanting to use this connection should bring their own laptop. The printer and connection are provided at no extra cost, but we ask guests to use the printer sparingly.

The Parque da Floresta Golf Course was created in 1994 and is billed as one of Europe's most picturesque. Measuring 5587 metres from the white tees, the par 71 course has varied holes running along valleys, past eucalyptus covered .ravines, flanked by olive, palm and pine trees. No two holes are similar. Our guests enjoy a 40% discount of green fees. Buggy hire is also available. Other courses are available at Boavista, Palmares, Penina and Alto Golf.

The Western Algarve is famous for its beaches, and Salema beach is only 2 miles from the villa. It is a beautiful, clean, sandy beach washed by the Atlantic Ocean. Further west there are many quiet beaches to explore, some are easily accessible, some involve a scramble down steep paths.

We think our villa is a very special place, and we would love you to enjoy it too! Many of our guests have been coming back year after year. We hope to hear from you soon.

Further details outdoors

The garden at Casa Palmeira is a delight, full of flowers and mature trees, including orange, lemon and guava trees, and with a large lawned area. The trees offer privacy and shade, and provide a wonderful place for children to play. There are terraces to sit on, sunbathe on, and eat on, to catch the sun at all times of the day. The pool is private and pool heating is included in the price. Near to the pool is the new hot tub, and the barbecue area with gas barbecue. The downstairs kitchen opens onto a covered terrace. The terrace is laid out with a dining table and chairs, and with large pots of colourful flowers. This area is ideal for outdoor meals as it provides shade from the heat of the sun, but still provides the fun of al fresco! Upstairs, the west facing terrace also has a large dining table and chairs, which are ideal for evening dining as that terrace catches the last rays of the sun. The garden area is fully equipped with loungers for poolside relaxation.

The Algarve region

Parque da Floresta offers not only golf, but also tennis courts, football academy, spa, swimming pools, restaurants and golf driving range. The resort is located in the Western Algarve, within easy reach of numerous stunning beaches, timeless fishing villages and unspoilt countryside. It sits between Lagos to the East and Sagres to the West. Further to the West is Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point of mainland Europe.

There is a lot to see and do in the surrounding area. Parque da Floresta is set on the edge of the Costa Vicentin Nature Reserve, and there are lovely walks along established tracks in the Reserve. The town of Lagos, with its marina, is about 20 minutes away by car. Inland there are many beautiful old towns, castles and villages to visit, such as Silves.

"Extremely well appointed villa in good location"

We have just returned from a short early Spring break at this villa. It is extremely well appointed with everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The kitchen is well equipped with good quality glasses and crockery and there is even a second kitchen on the lower level equipped with lovely picnic ware for outside.Also easy access to another fridge for the all important glass of wine. There are videos, books and games for everyone and plenty of quiet nooks and shade to escape to for a read or sun bathe. The garden is stunning with access onto the golf course. Beds comfortable with good linen. Well stocked supermarket less than ten mins. drive away and on site restaurants which are easy walking distance. We did some walking from the villa as it borders a national park, possibly a bit hot in the summer but great for the shoulder months. We certainly will be back with our teenage kids.
