Villa in Pinheiros Altos, Quinta do Lago, Almancil, Algarve, Portugal - Landscaped Gardens Lead To 1st Fairway Of Championship Course
This traditionally built Portuguese villa is the ideal location for a holiday, be it a relaxing break or a golfing trip. The property is situated in Pinheiros Altos, an exclusive development within the Quinta do Lago Estate, a 20 minute drive from Faro Airport. The private pool and surrounding patio area are the perfect place to unwind and take in the peace and quiet of the surroundings, the only interruption being the swish of golf clubs from a nearby tee. The manicured garden leads down to the 1st fairway of this par 72 championship course, a favourite for pre-season professionals. Guests staying at villa have the chance to play the course for a discounted rate. For non golfers, or for non-golf days, there is a sandy beach and good restuarants in nearby Vale do Lobo. Similarly, the 18,300 hectare Ria Formasa Nature Park is only short drive away and well worth a visit. Both can be easily reached.
