Luxury villa completed to very highest standards, stylish and contemporary furnishings, air-conditioned throughout. The bedrooms, all ensuite, are extremely spacious, as are the sitting room and dining areas. A large TV room is equipped with Satellite TV, DVD - and bar football table. Outside, a large, shaded patio - with table tennis table - leads down to the infinity pool/waterfall spa and a terraced garden with lawn areas. The resort offers a superb 18-hole course, tennis, archery, horseriding, health spa, gym, exercise studio, sauna/steam, swimming pools and kids' clubs in school holidays.

Superb local restaurants, especially in Salema - options range from simple fresh fish above the beach to the more sophisticated.

High quality and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at this property and the photo's do not do it justice.

The villa is beautiful - spacious and with everything you need. From a well equipped kitchen, to a lovely pool and comfortable TV room (along with sky films). The bedrooms and bathrooms are of a very good quality - as is the lounge and dinning area.

The gardens are lovely and the resort is very peaceful. We enjoyed some lovely trips to Prai Da Luz, Sagres and Salema.

We will delicately return and would highly recommend.

Special interest holidays:

Horse riding and trips to view wild dolphins are available nearby. Some of the best surfing in Europe is to be found on the wide, sandy beaches on West Coast only 25 minutes away. In contrast, the south coast beaches, only 5/15 minutes away, offer child-friendly coves. Internet access is also available at reception for a moderate charge. Castaways Club and bar for 10-18s. Children's clubs and competitions in school holidays. Golf competitions, open to guests, throughout the year.


This area is still one of Portugal's hidden secrets, from the tranquility of its sheltered southern beaches and harbours, to the wilder, more rugged west coast with its spectacular surf. The countryside consists of rolling landscapes, picturesque hamlets and fishing villages, as well as towns steeped in maritime heritage. Unlike the east, this region is delightfully unspoilt.


1 hour drive from Faro airport (mostly motorway). Situated between Lagos and Sagres on the Western Algarve. Well-equipped supermarket in nearby Budens. Car hire recommended - either at airport or via Reception. Reliable taxi service details supplied on request.


2 minute drive from supermarket in nearby village of Budens.

5 minutes drive from Salema beach and restaurants.

Numerous restaurants at Parque da Floresta.

20 minutes from spectacular Cape St Vincent.

15 minutes drive from historic town of Lagos.

Further Details:

The villa is set in the prestigious Parque da Floresta Golf and Country Club, in the unspoilt Western Algarve. The resort abounds with shrubs, flowers and tropical trees. As well as the golf course, PdF also has a tennis complex with 4 well-maintained floodlight courts, together with coaching. Other sporting facilities include an archery centre, 2 bowling greens (with club house), horse-riding, a large treatment spa and gymnasium, including small indoor pool. In addition to the private pool at the villa, there is also a large communal pool and children's pool at Parque da Floresta. Children's play area and children's clubs in school holidays. Brand new teenage centre with pool, pool tables, table tennis, ten-pin bowling, arcade machines - open till midnight for 10-18 year olds.
