Delightful 2 bedroom townhouse in mature gardens
Pestana Palm Gardens is a small, exclusive development set on the cliff top about 1 km outside the popular, bustling resort of Carvoeiro. The development consists of 80 two storey townhouses set in beautiful mature gardens that abound with palm trees, bougainvillea and well tended lawns. The houses were built about 17 years ago, but they have been completely refurbished within the past 3 years. There is a large communal swimming pool, which is heated in winter, a poolside bar and a restaurant. Other on-site amenities include a tennis court, table tennis, a small health club/gym and a reception office, with friendly helpful staff, that is open every day. There is direct access from the resortís gardens on to the cliff top, which is a protected area that is home to many birds and is full of wild flowers in springtime.
No. 44 overlooks the pool and sunbathing area to the front. To the rear is part of the communal lawns with partial views over the cliff top to the ocean. The ground floor of the house consists of a tiled entrance area, a fully fitted kitchen, shower room with WC, and a lounge/dining room with French windows opening to a small patio and the communal lawn. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one twin and one double, and a bathroom. The house is comfortably furnished and the floors are tiled throughout in the Portuguese fashion. The bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes and the twin bedroom, which is at the rear and is air-conditioned, has a balcony with views out to sea. The double bedroom has a large floor-standing cooling fan for hot nights. In the lounge, which is air-conditioned, there is a stereo radio/CD, a cable TV with several English channels, including BBC 1 and 2. The house is cleaned twice weekly by the resortís maid service. Bed linen and towels (except beach towels) are provided and changed weekly. A baby's cot can be arranged.
