318 Balaia Golf Village

Villa -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Albufeira, Faro District, Algarve
This lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa is located on the excellent Balaia Golf Village between Albufeira and Vilamoura. It is superbly located in the centre of the complex overlooking one of the pools with easy access to all the facilities but with plenty of space around it for the kids to play! It is a single storey property located at ground level, so is ideal for families with young children as there are no stairs or balconies. There are 2 private patios complete with outside furniture and barbecue.

The property is AIR CONDITIONED with full climate control to provide cooling in the summer and heating in the winter. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been modernised in recent years.
