About the property

Townhouse in Quinta do Montinho / Parque da Floresta, Algarve - South Facing Views Of Countryside And Sea

Our house in Quinta do Montinho is our piece of paradise! QDM is a small collection of superbly appointed townhouses built on a hillside overlooking the village of Budens on the Western Algarve. It is a very peaceful location with south facing glorious views of the surrounding countryside and the sea in the distance. The house has it's own garden and a south facing balcony from which to enjoy the views and the sunshine. There is a beautiful communal pool at QDM which our guests are free to use.

The house is located within the Parque de Floresta Golf and Leisure Club. In addition to the challenging 18 hole golf course, there are other facilities such as a spa, leisure and fitness centre, floodlit tennis courts and a bowling green. Details of costs to use these facilities can be obtained at main reception.

There are numerous fabulous beaches close by and places of interest to visit including; Lagos, Sagres, Praia da Luz to name but a few. The house is ideally situated for families or couples who enjoy the beach, exploring the countryside and excellent local restaurants.

The house is very well equipped to meet all your needs. We have just recently installed a broadband connection, so there is free unlimited wifi within the house. We now have UKTV installed in the house showing all BBC and ITV channels as well as Channels 4 and 5. There are a number of DVDs for use of our guests.

About The Owner

I am a retired Primary School teacher. I live in Holmfirth.I am married to a retired headteacher of a large High School. We now spend a lot of time on the golf course. We try to visit our lovely house in Portugal at least twice a year.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Budens

We love the Western Algarve. It is less crowded and the beaches are superb. We fell in love with the house and bought it in 2007. The house has gorgeous views of the sea and surrounding countryside from the south facing balcony. There is a heated swimming pool close to the house.We are able to offer all the facilities at Parque da Floresta including; golf, gym, spa and childrens club.

There are many restaurants all within a few miles, many of which we have recommended in our restaurant guide.

We have central heating as well as a log-burning fire.

The house is in excellent condition and fully equipped. There is no finer feeling than sitting on the balcony as the sun goes down sipping a glass of local wine and basking in the tranquility the house affords Suitable for all year round lets.

What makes this house unique

So far we have had guests from 6 months old to 88 year olds and all have enjoyed their stay and indeed many have been returning guests. We have recently refurnished the master bedroom in mexican pine. Both bathrooms have power showers. One advantage of the house is that no matter how hot it is during the day, the temperature is pleasant in the evening. Air con is not needed to ensure a good nights sleep.

We have a free unlimited wifi, tv, DVD player, hifi, a selection of cds and dvds, ipod docking station, family games, a library, and beach equipment for the use of our guests.
