About the Owner
We're family villa owners, and love to spend time out at Parque da Floresta whenever possible. We have kids ranging in ages from 1 year to 18 years old!
Russell purchased this villa in 2002
Why Russell chose Vila Do Bispo region
The western Algarve is a magical place, far from the busy package-holiday destination resorts. With rugged coastlines, beautiful beaches and fresh air straight off the atlantic.
The country club - Parque da Floresta, gives you the best of both worlds, with its beautiful unspoilt location in a nature reserve, with all the amenities you could need including Spa, Golf, Tennis etc.. It's also a short 10min drive to the bustling 24hr nightlife of Lagos.
We chose this villa for it's great position, views, large pool and terraces.
What makes this villa unique
Villa 44's location is one of the best, being sheltered from the winds, but still with views of the golf course, lake and sea. It's only a short walk to the clubhouse and Spa ~3 mins.
Beware of other villas on elevated hilltop positions, they can be windswept, or be a long walk to the main facilities.

We stayed in the villa in October 2013 and had a truly fabulous holiday. Two families of four (4 adults and 4 kids under 6 in total) stayed in the apartment and had ample room - accomodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. Some of the photos on the site are not up to-date - the TV is far more modern (with good wifi and satellite) while the BBQ is definitely worth firing up! The pool was superb as well. While the spa was only a few minutes walk away, all the kids loved the pool so much we didn't visit the spa as much as we anticipated. Even in October, the pool was warm enough, but toasty when heated! The golf course is very picturesque and relatively challenging (although suitable for all levels) with great discounts on offer. Usually it is relatively easy to get a tee-off time but the week I was there coincided with the annual tournament, so it was not as straightforward to get a round in (we managed a couple of rounds, but double check this before booking if you are a keen golfer). While the on-site restaurants are nice, the local towns are definitely worth exploring. The larger, more well known towns of Lagos, Luz and Sagres should be visited, but are busy. There are couple of smaller, nearer villages with superb beaches and restaurants that I cannot recommend highly enough - Salema and Budens offer near deserted beaches and lovely beach-front restaurants. We're all looking forward to returning in 2014!
This is a spacious , comfortable and well looked after villa. Pool and surrounding area very clean and maintained. Kitchen has all the equipment you could need, large lounge with wi fi and English TV channels. In a quiet area but close to gym and spa. Exercise classes, yoga and Zumba very good. Although I don't play golf the course looked challenging . There is a supermarket nearby which has all the basics. Car a necessity but local tourist areas not crowded . Russell , the owner provided us with lots of local information, car hire etc and was most helpful. Hopefully return for a golfing holiday.
