Spacious, private villa with spectacular views, gardens and pool



Updated: 12-Aug-2016
4 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8

'Casa Cisne' is a very spacious, well maintained resort managed property enjoying an excellent central position on the prestigious 'Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort' (now known as 'Santo Antonio Resort') on the relatively unspoiled Western Algarve. The villa has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme and amongst many other improvements new bathrooms, kitchen and utility room were fitted. This south facing villa has a very private position, large rooms, larger than average swimming pool, an outdoor BBQ and lawned gardens. The property which sits alongside the 12th fairway, commands superb views of the golf course and national park with glimpses of the ocean beyond. 'Casa Cisne' is sufficiently spacious for 2 families to reside in comfort whilst smaller parties can sometimes enjoy reduced rates outside school holidays. Villa guests are able to enjoy a 40% reduction on green fees. A wood burning stove and electric radiators provide heating during the winter season.

The Resort: The resort's extensive range of sports and leisure facilities include tennis courts, bowls, archery, an 18 hole golf course and a golf driving range. Mountain bikes are also available for hire giving access to the swathes of surrounding countryside. The resort's superb 'SPA' facilities include an outdoor heated swimming pool, a beauty salon, and a well equipped gymnasium. The 'Spike Bar' provides a popular social venue for golfers and villa guests. During school holidays a 'Fun Club' is organised for youngsters. Older children are also able to attend a wide range of supervised activities. Both formal and informal dining is available on resort.

This is the best villa we've rented in this area

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic villa situated in a very private and quiet part of the development.

We've stayed in a number of villas in this part of the Algarve and this is by far the best.

The interior is very fresh and modern and the bedrooms and bathrooms have clearly recently been updated. The outside space is excellent with a very large pool and lots of sunbeds and space. The BBQ area with it's table in the shade and outside sink is fantastic, as is the poolside loo and shower.

As a family of 5, with 3 teenage boys who love water and ball games we would struggle to find a villa which suits our need better.

Phil was really helpful and a pleasure to deal with. He was keen that we had a great holiday and his communication before, during and after our stay was first class.

We will definitely be staying here again.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from Portugal and would have no hesitation in recomending this lovely villa.It is in a elevated position with beautiful views of the golf course and beyond.The villa is well equiped and standards high.

We had a great holiday and will return.

Only downside which isn't the owner fault is golf is quite expensive even with discount,but my husband played in a couple of competitions and had a great time,everyone very friendly.

Owner very helpful and good information given about where to eat out,particulary liked Salema good choice and not expensive,also well stocked supermarket two minutes from complex.

Thanks look forward to coming back
