Villa Description
An arched front door leads into an open hallway with a lovely polished wood floor. From here wooden stairs lead up to a first floor bedroom level and down to the living area.

Taking the short flight of stairs down, a small landing overlooks an open topped atrium planted with a lovely feature ficus tree and various small plants. A few steps more on the right brings you into the first section of the lounge area. Here, there is a large wooden bar and 3 three-seater sofa's.

Beyond here is a circular sunken area with built-in seating, a feature fireplace and the television. Two pairs of patio doors lead out to the pool terrace and garden.

To the left of the lounge an archway leads into the large dining room with views to the pool and garden.

A sliding door leads from here to the large kitchen. The white units and worktops, together with very nice tiling around the arched windows, give this room a very pleasant, airy atmosphere.

On through the kitchen is another small hallway with a door to the side drive of the villa. Another flight of stairs down from here brings you to the laundry room with a cloakroom.

On the right of the hallway is an en suite twin bedroom with windows to the front and side of the villa which is traditionally furnished. There is plenty of built-in wardrobe space and the bathroom has a basin set in a wide white marble top, large mirror and over-bath shower.

Taking the short flight of stairs to the first floor level brings you to two more bedrooms, a double and a twin. The double bedroom faces you on this landing and has an en suite bathroom. Again, there is plenty of built-in wardrobe space and a lovely polished wood floor in both the bedroom and bathroom. Patio doors lead onto a large rear terrace overlooking the garden and pool and with views across the trees. The bathroom has a wash hand basin set in a wide, white marble top and an over-bath shower.

Going past the double bedroom on this level takes you round to an en suite twin bedroom. Patio doors lead on to the same terrace shared with the double bedroom. This traditionally furnished room has a polished wood floor and built-in wardrobes. The en suite bathroom has a basin set in a wide, white marble top, a large mirror, radiator and over-bath shower.

From the landing, another small staircase takes you to the fourth twin bedroom with a small balcony and an en suite bathroom.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and heated at no extra cost and the villa has free WiFi.

Outside, the patio doors from the lounge lead to a wide part-covered terrace with outside dining furniture. The very pleasant pool and garden area is partly lawned and planted with an imaginative variety of indigenous trees, shrubs and flowers. The pool is heated at no extra cost.

To one side is a separate terrace with a pool shower and large, brick-built barbeque, ideal for dining al fresco.

Activities and things to do
Salgados golf course
One of the many courses in the Algarve, it was once an aircraft landing strip and wetland area beside a bird sanctuary.

It has been compared to both a Scottish links course and a water-filled Florida course and if you enjoy water challenges this course is for you.

The par 4 seventh is rated amongst the best holes in Portugal. The final three holes decrease in difficulty allowing golfers to ease up after a testing first 15.
