Sunny three bedroom, two and a half bathroom townhouse located in the village of the Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort ( now Santo Antonio Villas Golf and Spa) just a few minutes from the beautiful fishing village of Salema. Visitors to the house will enjoy free access to the large leisure pool with separate children's pool and play area, just a short walk ( less than a minute!) from the house,where you will also find a gym , spa and indoor pool ( additional charges payable onsite). The golf clubhouse, bar and restaurant are just a couple of minutes walk away and visitors are offered a 40% discount on the green fees on the beautiful 18 hole course. There are many other courses in the area for keen golfers.

Away from the resort there is so much to do. The area is very popular with surfers, hikers, walkers, bird watchers and mountain bikers. The amazing beaches of the West Coast such as Cordoama, Castelejo, Amado and Bordeira are a short drive away in the Natural Park of Costa Vicentina. The nearest beach is in the beautiful village of Salema, just five minutes drive on the South Coast. You can hire sunbeds and parasols, and take out a pedalo. Along from Salema are beautiful unspolilt coves with sandy beaches such as Figueira, Zavial, Ingrina, Boco do Rio,and Cabanhas Velhas. There are beaches like these all the way to Cape St Vincent (Cabo de São Vicente). There is a long distance hiking path (Via Algarviana)
In the spring we would highly recommend walking the coastal paths, where there is such an abundance of wild flowers. We have walked the path between Burgau and Salema, and have walked other coastal paths too. We have books in the house detailing local walks, and there are binoculars to borrow too.
Mountain biking can be undertaken from the house and there are some marked routes( Ecovia do Litoral) Bike Hire can be arranged too.
The more adventurous can go coasteering ( jumping off rocks and swimming the coastline) or stand up paddle boarding ((SUP).
Bird watching is very popular in the area and there is an annual birdwatching festival in Sagres in October.
