Guestbook comments from the owner

"As we said in your comments book, the villa was a real home from home and just a great place to stay put in....not what you should do on a holiday when there's things to go and see!" Sept 2014

"the most amazing villa which felt very special and yet a home from home so just perfect for us" Aug 2013

"Your villa - it was lovely, is it available again this year?" Jan 2013

"Back safely from another lovely visit to the villa." Aug 2011

"We all had a wonderful time and really enjoyed staying in your villa. I will be recommending it to my friends, and we hope to return in the future". July 2010.

"Just wanted to let you know what a lovely time we had at your villa last week, it is very homely and so well equipped, very relaxing." Sept 09.

We also loved the local area and Parque da Floresta itself.

"From the moment my family and I walked in, we were impressed by the layout, the quality and the atmosphere, we all felt immediately at home. Your villa exceeded our expectations on all fronts." July 09.

'I would really complement you on the villa - fantastically family friendly - we all loved it! The kids loved the beds (really comfy), and the pool. July 09

Lovely position for this single storey villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most relaxing fortnight in this lovely villa with our teenage boys and my elderly mother. It is one of the few single storey villas and proved to be ideal for my mother who has great difficulty walking, as there are just 3 steps up between the living and dining area, and just 2 steps down to the first of three bedrooms (which is on a level with the main bathroom).

The shaded patio immediately outside the living area is a boon, as it is not always easy to find shade on this resort and the wind is often too strong from umbrellas!!

The villa is positioned centrally in the original part of the resort, just a short walk from the clubhouse and spa. Neighbouring villas are quite close but it has a wonderfully private garden.

The villa was exactly as described, clean, tidy, and well maintained, with a good-sized kitchen.

Food 'outlets' on the resort itself are not great: the pizzeria by the main reception is good and does take away) but it's a great shame that the bowls club has closed (relocated just outside Praia da Luz as "Floresta Bowls Club" under the same management and open to visitors) as it did an excellent cooked breakfast and lovely sandwiches. However, there are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area, especially in Salema, Lagos, Figueira, Praia da Luz and up in the mountains around Monchique.

We would also particularly recommend the Puravida Divehouse in Sagres where, over a number of years, our boys have learned to dive in extremely safe hands, and had amazing underwater experiences in the locals bays.

Beautiful villa very well kept lovley pool and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Villa is a real home from home the beds are really comfortable which is very rare on a hoilday rental ,the villa has every appliance you could require and is situated on a good freindly golf resort that has a nice bar and restraunt for the nights you dont want to travel far .

The pool was loved by all the family and we spent many hours just chilling around it

Ther are plenty of quite beaches with in a 10-15 min drive we paticularly liked salamea which is a short 7 euro taxi ride away and has some good quality reastraunts and a gin bar that makes a g&t to die for so if you looking for a villa in portugal for a relaxing stay then look no further

Many thanks sandi for a wonderful holiday look forward to staying again

Great location, wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Portugal after a wonderful holiday. The booking process was very easy and we were given all the arrival details and information we needed. Despite a disappointing start with the weather we found plenty to do over the weekend. After that the weather was wonderful and we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful pool and gardens. The Parque De Floresta is very well maintained and has a great Pizza restaurant. The villa has everything you could need and is very well equipped and maintained. We did not have to drive far for shops, restaurants or wonderful beaches. I would recommend this villa and location to anyone who is considering Portugal and likes peace and quiet.

Villa 50

  • 5 of 5

Want a fantastic villa in a beautiful location? Do your family enjoy golf, tennis, fitness, fresh fish in restaurants overlooking the sea ? If so

Villa 50 is the villa for you. Walking out of the spacious open plan lounge,fully equipped with television, video and comfortable sofas, you then have the benefit of a terrace overlooking the crystal clear pool. You can choose from a choice of three terraces,including a roof top terrace with stunning views to enjoy meals, sunbathing or an evening drink. If eating in is for you,there is a barbecue by the pool and a fully equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are sympathetically furnished with comfortable beds and crisp white cotton sheets.Everything you need for a fantastic Portuguese holiday in a five star resort.
