About the property

Traditional Villa with Heated Saltwater Pool and Garden, sleeps 9

The spacious south facing villa built on a hillside on the edge of the 12th fairway, and just 500 metres from the Golf Clubhouse and Leisure Centre, offers superb views over the golf course to the cliffs and sea. Casa Oleiro stands in a delightful garden (1/3rd acre) with a 12m x 5m salt water pool, heating (optional). Approached by a sweeping driveway which gives seclusion without isolation. The main living rooms are on the upper level with French windows on to a large terrace. Breathtaking views of the 10th, 11th, 16th and 17th holes and the coastline. Three bedrooms on the lower level with air-conditioning and French windows on to the terraces and swimming pool. Study/4th bedroom on the upper level.

A 360 Virtual Tour (Video) of Casa Oleiro, the pool, garden etc on the owners website. Please contact the owner for the website.

Further Details: Shopping - there is an Ecomarche in Budens (24 hr Petrol) for all family needs and a bakery in the village. The open-air markets with their colourful sweaters, rugs and shoes, together with the local Pottery shops make an enjoyable visit. More sophisticated shops in Lagos and Portimao. At PdF there are 4 floodlit Tennis Courts with a resident LTA professional, two bowling greens and a fully equipped Leisure Centre with heated indoor and outdoor pools. Mountain bikes, Horse Riding and Archery are also available. The Football Academy (Easter, Summer and May and October Half Terms ) is very popular. Restaurants - there are so many within 15 minutes drive, it is difficult to choose. Many charco-grill the locally caught sea food and prices reflect that this is still an unspoilt area. There are 4 different restaurants at PDF - some offering 'takeaways'. Banks in Sagres and Lagos. Cashpoint at PDF.

Outside and Coast/Beach: Casa Oleiro stands in a beautifully matured garden of 1/3rd acre with a private saltwater pool (12x5m) - heating available. Covered BBQ with inset sink unit. Large terraces at both levels & around the pool with tables and chairs on both levels. Pool loungers around the pool. Sun brollies.

The Unspoilt West Algarve is famed for its beautiful sandy beaches and sheltered coves. The unspoilt fishing village of Salema is our nearest beach - 5 minutes by car.

Many other beaches within 15 minutes. The wild West coast is a 'must' where the Atlantic breakers attract surfers from all over Europe. To see the sunset dropping into the sea is a memorable & photogenic sight.

Travel and Distance : Faro International Airport is 100 kms (62 miles)via the A 22 Motorway to Lagos - approx 1 1/4 hours drive.

Car Hire strongly recommended to enjoy the area to the full.

Budens - just below the 8th hole is a 4 minute drive, the unspoilt fishing village of Salema is 5 minutes away.

The historic town of Lagos is 16 kms as is Cape St Vincent, the most westerly point in Europe.

Sagres with its fishing port and ancient fortress, home to Henry the Navigator is 12 kms to the west.

About Daphne & Hugh Potter

Our first visit to Portugal was in 1983 when we bought a large apartment in Salema. A new golf course was being discussed and we kept in touch with the MD of the development, who like me was a charted civil engineer.

In 1987 another family and ourselves were the first to buy plots at PdF (no name in those days) long before the golf course was built.

When our son Henry was a youngster, we spent half-term and Easter holidays in the sunshine enjoying golf when the UK was less hospitable. Henry was encouraged by the members and his golf developed at PdF - all worthwhile as he has qualified as a full Member of the PGA - the photo was taken at his graduation in May 2011. Henry is the Assistant Pro at Hunstanton, my own UK club.

We all love the West Algarve - golf, swimming in our heated pool, the coastline, small coves and beaches, and the lovely restaurants - much cheaper than the UK !

Daphne & Hugh Potter purchased this villa in 1987

A lovely spacious villa, extremely well equipped and perfect for a large party.

The villa itself is a great location overlooking the golf course, with sunshine all day. It is a short walk to the main pool and clubhouse.

The pool is heated and the patios have plenty of sunbeds and chairs and tables. The gardens are beautifully maintained.

Our holiday group included 4 teenagers so the villa and resort were perfect in that we had plenty of space, lots to do and amazing beaches all within a short drive.

All in all a lovely holiday.

Parque da Floresta is in the unspoilt Western Algarve midway between the historic walled town of Lagos and Cape St Vincent. The magnificent Golf Course is set amongst gently rolling hills above the fishing village of Salema with superb views over 20 miles of the Algarve coastline and the dramatic Monchique mountains.

Bordering the Costa Vincentina Nature Reserve the hillsides are endowed with wild flowers, birds and rare butterflies.

Salema, with its superb sandy beach is a typical\al small whitewashed fishing village. The fishermen land their catch on the beach where their colourful boats are moored.

Lagos with its harbour, old slave market, shops, restaurants and nightlife offers something a little different.

Shopping - an Intermarche and a bakery in Budens, mini markets, local pottery shops and open air markets selling handwoven tablecloths and home-made sweaters

Restaurants - there are many excellent ones within 15 minutes drive. The seafood should not be missed !

Other Activities: Tennis, Outdoor Bowls, Leisure Centre (Fully Equipped)

Penina - Henry Cotton's masterpiece and the most popular course for the Portuguese Open is approx. 30 minutes drive. Palmares - originally designed by Frank Pennick, now redesigned and still one of the prettiest couses on the Algarve, with many spectacular views over the Bay of Lagos. 25 minutes from PdF.
