Casa Sandra is a lovely Portuguese farmhouse restored to its former charm & character, but with all the modern comforts that we love today. The spacious lounge is warm & inviting with a good sized dining area leading onto the modern fitted kitchen. An internal staircase takes you onto a private sunbathing terrace giving fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. In the main house there are 4 bedrooms, all bright & airy with en-suite facilities. For larger groups there are a further 2 bedrooms & shower room in the adjoining annexe if required. NB the annexe will not be let out independently.
Outside facilities: Outside there is a very large undercover area giving ideal shade & is perfect for outside living, easily seating 16/20. Have a game of pool or relax & watch TV, there’s no need to miss your favourite programme just because the sun’s out!
The floodlit BBQ, and not forgetting the 10 x 5m Roman shaped pool with underwater lighting, gives a wonderful back light over the decking and terraces.
Local attractions: Visit some of the Algarve’s most beautiful beaches, less than 20minutes by car. Or for something more energetic try one of the many Waterparks, Zoomarine, Krazy World, Karting or check out the Algarve shopping centre, with their fabulous shops, bowling alley & multi cinemas.
Visit Albufeira’s old town, Villamoura’s marina or the historic town of Silves to name but a few.
Golf info: There are 32 Golf courses along the Algarve, all of them are easily accessible from the villa and Paderne lies almost exactly in the middle of the Algarve. Discounts available at most courses. Championship courses, including Villamoura Old Course, Quinta Do Lago & Salgados are all within a 20minute drive.
In the picturesque village of Paderne lies this beautifully restored quinta. Set in 2 acres and looking out over the stunning Algarve countryside. Ideally located only 30 min from Faro airport, and 20 min from the centre of Albufeira and the golfing hot spots of Villamoura.
A short drive or leisurely walk will take you into Paderne, a typical Portuguese village. Full of charm and still unspoilt with it’s quaint shops, restaurants and famous Moorish castle ruins. There are 2 mini-markets for your day to day needs, one with butcher’s counter & fresh bread daily. There is a good choice of coffee shops and restaurants serving reasonably priced & tasty food with a friendly service.

Golf: Portugal provides an all year round climate which facilitates the golfing fraternity. Early morning and late afternoon golf is excellent in the summer months and with the mild winter climate, there is no restriction to what time of day a round of golf can be played in the other months throughout the year. A great selection of courses are all within easy reach of Casa Sandra such as The Pinta and Gramacho courses at Carvoeiro which is roughly 20 minutes away and the purpose built golf resort of Villamoura with lots of great courses is approx a 20 mins drive away. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted at Penina, Vila Sol and São Lourenzo, all of which are included in the list of top European championship courses. Sunny playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. There are over 20 courses within a 20 minute drive, so it’s not surprising that keen golfers find that the location of this villa is ideal to combine both a beach and a golfing holiday, and it also works well for partners and children who do not participate in the sport. Everyone can be happy.
