WHAT MAKES VILLA FLORESTA A GREAT HOLIDAY RENTAL:
Two families sharing or a group of golfers.
ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR?
Car essential. The accommodation is on three levels so quite a lot of steps.
Because it's the unspoiled Algarve. There are no crowds or over-development. Enjoy instead a pretty seaside fishing village of white-washed houses, a fabulous award-winning beach and some delightful seafood restaurants. The nearest main town - Lagos - has much to offer for active family holidays.
Spacious & stylish holiday villa with fabulous views and heated swimming pool
A stunning holiday home enjoying an elevated situation with views out to the sea and across the Parque da Floresta golf course.
The villa enjoys ample space inside and out - two families can easily be accommodated.
The villa is very well-equipped, is within easy reach of the amenities of Parque da Floresta and just a short drive to the beautiful beaches of the unspoiled Western Algarve - it's a pretty good package!
On three levels, the upper level is devoted to living areas and one of the bedrooms. The next level down is where the remaining bedrooms are found. The pool is another level down at garden level.
Entrance leading to upper floor accommodation comprising:
The remaining four bedrooms are found downstairs:

From both balconies there are external steps down to the pool.
The swimming pool and terrace are stunning. There are multiple sun beds with cushions, a large sun umbrella, pool cover and steps leading down to the lawn. The pool is kidney shaped with a separate kids' paddling pool too.

Santo Antonio Resort
Facilities on the resort include (payable locally):
The local village next door to Parque da Floresta and where you'll find a supermarket and a couple of restaurants.
One of the Algarve's best-kept secrets. This is a charming fishing village & seaside resort, dotted with white-washed houses rather than the over-development that blights the Algarve. It was recently voted in Europe's Top 10 Beaches for Families by The Guardian. It's crystal clear blue waters and fine golden sands attract young families in particular. There are occasional waves for body-boarding and the beahc is life-guarded in summer.
There's also a fine choice of authentic restaurants and cafes - seafood being the speciality. Boia, Atlantico and Agua Na Boca come recommended.
Lagos & Nearby
On the western Algarve coast, Lagos is quite a find combining beach, culture and activities for a fabulous family holiday.
