Villa Bela Vista is a luxurious contemporary villa in a protected Nature Reserve on Quinta da Fortaleza, between the lively coastal villages of Burgau and Salema. It's just a few minutes walk to the beautiful, secluded Cabanas Velhas beach with its own fabulous beach bar, and 5 minutes drive from Parque da Floresta Golf Resort (Villa Bela Vista guests are entitled to a 40% Green Fee discount) Villa Bela Vista commands a wonderful, elevated, hilltop position; the beach views and coastal walks are breathtaking. This is a charming family home that stands head-and-shoulders above other properties because of the personal attention to detail you don't often find in a rental villa. The entire villa is completely child-proofed with safety fencing around all terraces and top-of-therange pool fencing (which can be removed). The villa has 4 double bedrooms (plus extra mattresses/cots if needed). Two bedrooms are en suite. All linen and towels/beach towels are provided. Villa Bela Vista has been designed to capitalise on its fabulous location; with large, open-plan spaces and ocean-facing terraces. There are 2 BBQ areas, table tennis and a boules pitch. There's a jacuzzi on the top terrace with panoramic views. This is a particularly individual property with bags of character and charm...and all the mod cons you'd expect from your own home (wifi, music docking station, SMART wifi-connected Satellite TV, Playstation PS2 and games, outdoor music system, a huge DVD movie collection, Air Con) As well as Cabanas Velhas on your doorstep, you're spoilt for choice for delightful beaches in the area, not forgetting all the West Coast surfing beaches just a short drive away too. The charm of Villa Bela Vista comes from its feeling of relative seclusion; and yet in reality, you're just minutes from the popular villages of Salema and Burgau, both packed with first class restaurants and bars (Salema now boasts 2 of the most popular restaurants on the Algarve; Agua na Boca and Bistro Central). What's more, there's a large supermarket nearby that stocks everything you might want from back home...but don't worry, the villa owners will leave you a food welcome pack!

Burgau is a quiet, relaxed village for most of the year with a selection of restaurants and bars to while away the evenings. During the summer months there is somewhat of a population explosion with all the new houses filling up and getting a table at a restaurant becomes something of an art form! There are shops in Burgau for your everday needs, but if there is anything you are missing then the nearest supermarket is Ecomarche, on the main EN125 at Budens (just a few minutes by car). Praia da Luz is just 5 minutes down the road in the other direction and has Baptista supermarket, which is particularly good for their wide range of imported produce. They also have fresh meat and bread counters as well as those items you might have trouble finding if you have special dietary needs (gluten-free, soya products etc).
A huge number of glorious unspoilt beaches are dotted along the local coast line. The villa is a 10 minute walk away from Cabanas Velhas: 200m, Bugau 2 minutes drive and a two minute drive to Salema. There are endless opportunities for all forms of watersports, hiking, walking and of course, sunbathing.
