Property description

Casa Palmeira is in a perfect location to enjoy the wonderful Portuguese countryside and climate. It has air-conditioning, free broadband wi-fi, private heated pool, hot tub and roof terrace, and is comfortable and relaxing, with wonderful outdoor and indoor spaces. Please watch our video - it is the last image on the photo page. We had great fun making it - and it shows all the outside spaces - and Ben our son composed, played and recorded the sound track. I hope you enjoy it.

The villa has four bedrooms. The master suite has a super-king-size bed, and an en-suite bathroom with spa bath and separate shower closet. The bedroom is air conditioned, and the French windows open on a terrace overlooking the garden and pool. Downstairs there is a king-size bedroom, with en-suite shower-room, and a further double bedroom and a twin bedroom - which share a bathroom. All the downstairs bedrooms have French windows which open onto the terrace leading to the pool.

Upstairs, there is a large airy sitting room, with large leather sofas, and flat screen television with free-sat channels,, DVD player, and music system. The dining room is adjacent to that, and both rooms have French windows which open onto the terrace. The kitchen is accessed from the dining room, and is full equipped with electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, and dishwasher, with the washing machine, tumble dryer and another fridge freezer in the utility room. There is also a study, with a television as well as a substantial library of books, which you are welcome to use on your visit. The sofa-bed is situated in the study, and is available for use by prior arrangement only. In the study there is an Xbox 360 consul with a couple of games. you could bring your favourite games with you to play.

Outside is simply a fantastic space. We think that the outdoors is just as important as inside, maybe more so. The garden is spacious, with several different areas of lawn, to relax, sunbathe and chill out. We love nature, so have tried to use as many local Portuguese flowers as possible. We hope you will enjoy them, particularly the beautiful Birds of Paradise shrubs, and the Bottlebrush plants - so colourful! The pool is heated, and the cost of that is included in the price. Is there any better way to relax on holiday than to laze in a fantastic pool, listening to birdsong, surrounded by perfect flowers? Well, we think we may just have found a way to improve on perfection! We have had a Hot Tub installed beside the swimming-pool to enjoy at any time of year! Amazing - see our photographs. And, we have just built a new roof terrace. It adds a great new dimension to the villa, with amazing views to the sea, and sun all day long. Just apply the appropriate sun screen and enjoy!

The Villa is child friendly with all the comforts of home, with perhaps a few extras. We have property managers based in Portugal to help you, in the unlikely event of a problem when you are staying in the villa.

Parque da Floresta itself is a beautifully maintained development, with the championship golf course at its heart. But there is also plenty for the non-golfer to do onsite, and further afield. At PdF there are tennis courts, a golf driving range, children's play areas and Fotball Academy. There is also a Spa, and 2 large pools at the Reception area, which guests can use.
The Algarve is renowned for its beautiful countryside, gentle climate, and history. There are also water parks for the adventurous. For those who enjoy the sea, there are beautiful beaches within 2 miles of the villa, and many more close by.

It has, we think, everything you could need for a great family holiday, but that still doesn't say it all. It doesn't explain why our guests come back year after year, and why it is just an amazing place to spend your precious holiday. It could be the sound of the doves in the evening, or maybe the breeze gently moving the palm tree leaves, or the different parts of the garden that get the sun, or the shade, at different times of the day. It is impossible to put your finger on it, but whatever it is, it makes Casa Palmeira special, and just a little bit different - doesn't feel like a holiday home; feels like home! We look forward to hearing from you.
And did you know that holiday homes now need to be licensed by the Portuguese Government to be legal? If the property you rent is licensed, you know it has been checked by the authorities and is registered. We have complied with all the requirements, and are proud of our new license.

Additional information about rental rates



Pool Heating is included in the price from 1 May - end of October. Outside those dates we cannot promise that the pool heating will be included. Portuguese pools are heated using heat exchangers, which depend on the air temperature to warm the water. If the air is cool, the pool heating isn't as effective. Payment through this website is through VRBO only,as it is commission based. We also list on the sister website Owners Direct, which offers alternative payment methods. Our listing number there is 8036384 and sometimes rates there are cheaper.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are Chris and Margo Addison-Scott, and we live at Kinloss Estate,near St Andrews in Fife in Scotland. We have three children, Alexandra, Jamie and Ben. Chris's hobbies are walking, reading and boats. Mine are gardening, my dogs, Rosie and Bella ( 2 adorable golden retrievers) and managing our pedigree herd of highland cattle. We are all generally pretty busy,and so we love to come out to Portugal to escape.

Why the Owner Chose Budens, Portugal:
We searched long and hard for the perfect holiday home, and we think we have now found it. We loved Portugal the first time we came here, and then decided that we loved it so much we wanted to buy a house here. There are so many lovely places to look, and each holiday after that was an opportunity to check out the best. We decided that the Western Algarve fitted the bill, as it is less developed, and has beautiful beaches. Parque da Floresta had been on our personal horizon for sometime, and we started looking at villas here in about 2006. However it wasn't until 2008 that the perfect villa came on the market and we knew as soon as we saw this one that it was the one for us. Since we bought it we have loved it more and more, and tried to make it a perfect home from home for our family and for families renting it for their holidays too.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Casa Palmeira is an entirely restful and relaxing place to spend time. It was built in Parque da Floresta by the Dutch couple from whom we bought it. They spent a lot of time and effort making it just a little bit different from the other houses here. It has wonderful glass oriels in the ceilings of the hall and between the master bedroom and ensuite, both of which introduce lovely light during the day. There are terraces facing different directions so that the sun, or shade, can be enjoyed at all times of the day. We are very lucky not to be overlooked by any other villas, so the garden is always private and secluded.We have tried to make the villa as pretty and comfortable as possible. I had great fun choosing, and having made, the curtains throughout - lots of different fabrics and textures, from silk to calico, with quite a few pretty crystals thrown in for fun! I hope you enjoy it all.
