The Algarve region
The Algarve is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations, thanks to the relaxed atmosphere and its welcoming people.
With over 155 km of beautiful sandy beaches to choose from and over 3000 hours sunshine a year, the Algarve has fast become a favourite holiday destination.
The unspoilt Western Algarve boasts some of the best beaches in Portugal. There are many beach activities on offer, such as diving, fishing, windsurfing, jetskis and kite surfing.
The Western Algarve is steeped in history and tradition, its gastronomical delights, especially seafood, are not to be missed.
Whether you prefer a relaxing beach holiday, a cultural or historical experience or a golf holiday, we have something for everyone.
2kms or a 5 minute drive to the secluded golden beach of Salema, which is also a pretty and unspoilt fishing village full of charm where you can find numerous traditional restaurants. With its maze of cobbled streets bustling with pavement restaurants, and busy cafe bars, Lagos is a vibrant centre full of life, and only 16kms away.
Also a town of culture and history dating back to Roman times. It was from here in 1415 that Prince Henry the Navigator launched his fleet and set the stage for Portugal's Age of Discovery.
Right out to the west is the port of Sagres and spectacular headland of Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point in continental Europe.

"Fab Family Frolics in Floresta"
We booked Villa 151 as it ticked all the boxes for a family holiday with diverse needs but a single aim - to have fun!
Everyone had an ensuite bedroom and the 3 doubles were massive with loads of storage space. My gran took one of the twin rooms and the two young girls took the other twin room.
Vicky was an absolute star in helping to arrange everything before and was instantly at hand by email during our stay. (Free Wifi in the villa meant we could all use our smartphones for contact)
The resort also has a spa, which some of us used. The 2 hour experience with indian head massage, back massage and foot reflexology was amazing. (100 euros) Thanks to Sonia at the spa reception for sorting us out.
There is also a kids club where the girls spent an afternoon whilst the adults were having their treatments. (12.50 Euros pppd)
My three areas for improvement would be for picnic tableware to use outside, a few more kitchen utensils for serious cooks and a video library for idiots like us who didn't bring any for the DVD player.
Day trips to the beaches of Salema, Sagres, Luz and Velhadas were taken by small groups which were all lovely, but we loved coming back to the comfort of the villas heated pool and jacuzzi with ice cream and Vino verde in the fridge.
We ate out once at the Blue Wave Beach Bar, a really nice bar with relaxed whitewashed interior and great food and service. The surf and turf tiger prawn was the size of a small lobster and the Stone Bass (like swordfish) was delightfully eaten washed down with plenty of red wine from Portugals' Alentajo region. the girls had a huge chicken ciabatta burger.
All 9 people loved the villa and it suited us down to the ground for an experience we will all cherish. Mission accomplished!

"Thoroughly recommend this property for group holiday."
The quality and amenities of the property are excellent.
Families with very young children should be aware that it is on several levels with staircases and Portugese swimming pools do not require safety protection.
Thoroughly recommend it though for old folk like us that can still make it up a flight of stairs and just about swim!

Defintiely want to return some day.

"First Class Property, Location and Service"
We travelled to this Villa as a group of 4 adults and 5 Children and it was perfect from start to finish. The villa is simply stunning (with great views across the sea), first rate fixtures and fittings and plenty to keep the children and adults entertained for hours.
I can not rate Vicky and the teams helpfulness and attention detail. We reported a small electrical issue which was fixed within 20 minutes ! Even after we left the villa, Vicky was happy to help with another issue.
I really hope to stay here agin in the future.

"Fabulous Villa, spacious, beautifully furnished to a high standard"
We stayed at this villa in August travelling in a large family group of 5 adults and 4 children (aged between 9 and 5). The villa was wonderful and looked exactly like it does in the pictures. It was very spacious (the bedrooms were huge and you really couldn't use all the bathrooms!) and decorated to a very high standard. Everything was beautifully maintained. The highlight for the children was the basement play room with playstation/dvd - we hardly saw them in the evenings! The cleaners were great and you had 3 cleans over the two weeks so the villa always looked spotless. The outside area was fantastic too, plenty of sunbeds, pool towels provided, lovely pool and spa and BBQ area. The pool/maintenance man is on hand to sort out any issues you might have and is very attentive. The management company were superb throughout, from booking to departure and very kindly left us a lovely welcome food pack as our flight arrived so late - very thoughtful. Really couldn't fault it, one of the best villas we have ever stayed in, would thoroughly recommend.
We have been to Parque da Floresta before and you do need a car as it is very hilly. The onsite facilities are good, and the surrounding area has some lovely beaches and restaurants if you can drag yourself away from the villa! Portugal can be very windy though so take an extra layer for the evenings.
Overall, a fantastic holiday, the highlight being the superb villa...this really is a case of you get what you pay for!!! Would highly recommend.

"Five Star rating sums this villa up perfectly !"
We were amazed by the high standards throughout. For keen golfers, this place is a must. The villa has exclusive use of a large pool and a built in Barbecue Area. Fully fitted luxury kitchen, well stocked with utensils, appliances etc and a view to kill for over the Fairway. There is no need to pack the beach towels, they are provided along with plenty of bits and bobs for use around the villa or on the beach. The service you get from Victoria is second to none, nothing is too much trouble . Our stay was a pleasure. This is our 2nd year at this villa and we have already booked for next year.

Splendid villa Parque da Floresta, a nice and peaceful site. No noise or whatsoever. We felt like a king and queen for two weeks. The features we liked best about this villa:
* the view on the ocean and surroundings
* very well equipped kitchen and neat bathrooms, also clean
* a lot of terraces and a huge balcony, with all kinds of possibilities like sun, shade, eating or chilling. Comfortable chairs and sunbeds as well
* Although it can be windy in PDF, the pool and most terraces are strategically placed and protected from wind. Only a light breeze can be felt most of the time, which is actually good when temperatures are high.
* The pool itself is quite large and most of the time in the sun. It was too chilly for our daughter (15 months), but for a plunge it's OK. It's possible to heat, but we used the heated jacuzzi instead. It's located in the shadow most of the time and quite spacious. Heated permanently without additional costs
* Bedrooms are nice and cool, because they are not in the direct sun and 4 of 5 of them are not situated at the top level of the villa.
* a gaming room with pooltable is the topping on the ice
* surroundings are nice, especially beaches at the west coast. A couple of villages are close, like salema, lagos and sagres
Things we did not like:
* the beds are pretty small (and a bit stiff, but that's a matter of taste)
* a car is necessary as from the villa to the entrance of the parc it's already 2.5 km! At that point there is just a roundabout and you need to travel further to reach some restaurants or whatever. We knew this beforehand (well not that it was exactly 2,5 km, but we did know that is was quite far), but still we missed a bit that walking for a couple of minutes gets you to "something"
