Villa Palmeira is a large, gracious luxury villa with its own private garden, set in a beautiful estate of African pines and orange groves that slope gently down to the sea. The villa overlooks a picturesque landscaped common area with an attractive water feature, beyond which are the facilities and services of the Dunas Douradas resort.
The Portuguese villa, spread over three floors, is furnished in the style of a luxurious family home, with plenty of room in which to spread out and relax. It has been designed with the climate of the Algarve in mind, offering inside-outside living. Many of the bedrooms benefit from terrace access, while the spacious reception room flows seamlessly into the open-sided terraced dining and seating area, furnished with contemporary rattan sofas and chairs, pretty decorative terracotta urns and hurricane lamps.
At the edge of the terrace lies the villa's private pool, with a chic tiled pool deck with contemporary sun loungers and white parasols. A flight of steps leads down to the beautifully manicured garden.
Bedrooms, meanwhile, are cool and serene, decorated in soothing blues and greys with simple white walls and tiled floors and heavy green shutters.
Dunas Douradas is a small, very private resort, but if you're looking for something to do, nearby Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo both offer a vast number of facilities and services. If you prefer less organised entertainment, the nearest beach is five minutes' walk away. Alternatively, jump in the car and head inland for a tour of an Algarve winery.
