Car: Necessary

Figueira is half way between Sagres and Lagos, surrounded by beautiful countryside and a few minutes' drive from its delightful secluded beach. The village itself has several small shops, restaurants and bars, but retains its own individual character, with narrow winding streets and whitewashed cottages. It is in an outstanding area for relaxing and sports, with golf, tennis surfing, diving, and many other activities available nearby. The beaches on the west coast are spectacular and never crowded and many beaches have restaurants nearby offering freshly caught fish. Sagres and Lagos are both steeped in history and Lagos' lively night life is a twenty minute drive away. The fishing village of Salema is five minutes away by car and retains much of its charm.

Other Activities: Bowls

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have lived in the Algarve for 27 years, brought up two children here and are now enjoying semi-retirement. We live near Lagos, about twenty minutes' drive from Figueira, on a country property and now live the 'good life' with a vegetable garden and chickens, plus cats and dogs. We are now proud grandparents of Thomas and Georgia, and love to spend time with themboth in the UK and especially when our daughter comes over here with them.

Why the Owner Chose Figueira, Budens, Portugal:
We bought Casa Maria as we had both worked at Parque da Floresta, the golf and leisure resort nearby, and had come to love the village and the surrounding countryside and coastline.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
That area of the Algarve has a microclimate that is very beneficial for the flora - there is hardly any frost so plants that can't survive cold conditions thrive there.
