Guestbook comments from the owner

A very well equipped spacious villa. Ideal for a lovely holiday with a large private pool. The Villa also has stunning views towards the sea and over the golf course. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Our 5th year staying at Paul and Helens home from home. As previous years so relaxing, walking through the front door it's like being home from home. The furnishings are superb as is the view over the 13th fairway. Only draw back, 2 weeks is never long enough

Outstanding villa

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Parque da Floresta for a number of years and have always enjoyed our stays. Spent two glorious weeks last September at this villa and loved every minute. A touch of luxury. Beautifully appointed and everything we could wish for.

The area is surrounded by superb sandy beaches and eating out is a pleasure.

If all you want is a peaceful holiday why not laze by the pool. Paradise! Of course you could play golf. The first tee is only a walk away.
