As we swept up to the impressive entrance of Casa da Palmeira it was immediately clear that we had arrived at a house of stature and quality. Long-standing friends of Vintage Travel, the owners have created yet another perfectly proportioned, superbly appointed and tastefully decorated house, easily comparable with their larger properties which include the ever popular Casa de Baixo and Casa Cahombo.

Placing the emphasis, as always, on ease of living the thoughtfully designed interior is bright, smart and welcoming in every regard.

Well equipped and comprehensively furnished, each room is enhanced by a selection of hand-picked personal touches with the distinctive colour scheme of subtle, warming tones perfectly complemented by stylish soft furnishings and artwork.

All three bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned with their own individual en suite facilities plus there is the added bonus of an additional family shower room conveniently located off the living room.

The exterior is an equal joy. Bordered by lawn and ivy fringed sun terrace, the private swimming pool is an excellent size and ideally complemented by a separate, solar heated children’s pool (which can be fenced on request). A substantial in-built barbecue sits to one side of the covered dining terrace and, a large dedicated games room provides the ideal shady sanctuary for young and old alike when summer temperatures are at their height.

Perfect for essential amenities, nearby Boliqueime (4km) has two minimarkets and two supermarkets, bank, chemist and several restaurants (one of which specialises in piri-piri dishes). Fully comprehensive facilities and a blue flag beach of soft golden sand are just 12km away at Olhos de Agua with the six internationally renowned golf courses of Vilamoura about 14km.

  • *The main pool can be heated (minimum three days notice to be fully effective) at a cost of €299 per week, paid directly to the house owner.
  • The main pool can be fenced on request (no extra charge if requested at time of booking).
  • Housekeeping service six days per week (not Sunday).
  • The owners of Casa da Palmeira respectfully request that guests do not smoke inside the house.
