This popular, well-built villa is set on a hillside in the award winning golf and leisure resort of Santo António Villas, formerly Parque da Floresta. It is on 2 floors to take advantage of the spectacular panoramic views which extend along the coastline to the villages of Luz and Burgau to the east and Salema and Figueira to the west and the sea in the distance. The property is in a great position; it is part of the Santo António Resort which offers splendid facilities for activities including golf, tennis courts, a well-equipped gym, a beauty spa offering many treatments, a bar and a couple of restaurants. A children’s club is usually available in the holiday seasons when there are sufficient to make a group. Horse riding is available at stables about 15-minute drive away. Cycle and car hire can also be arranged at reception. Guests staying at the villa are often able to claim discounts on golf. These discounts are not available when certain other promotions are in force. To claim the discount the guests will need a letter of introduction from the owner, a copy of which will be available in the villa at the beginning of your stay. Usage of the course may be restricted during tournaments or golf festivals such as the ‘Autumn Festival’ (late September). At these times keen golfers will need to pre-book or, if they wish, they can participate. Details from the Golf Reception 0031 282 690054 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
