    Additional amenities & feature info
    Our townhouse, which is only 7 years old and is located in Quinta da Encosta Velha - a self contained 'village' within the Parque da Floresta Resort, - has been built and finished to a very high specification. It's beautifully furnished and has air conditioning in every room, yet is cosy and warm in the winter with central heating and a wood burner in the lounge. The layout features split levels, with steps up from the lounge to the kitchen, and down to bedroom 3 on the middle floor and bedrooms 1 & 2 on the lower floor. For this reason, it might not be suitable for families with toddlers.

    Highchairs, cots and extra beds are available for a small additional charge. Please enquire about the possibilities for groups of more than 6 people.

A stunning villa set in beautiful surroundings. Quality accommodation - we wanted for nothing. The kids had a ball as the pool was steps away so they could alternate between swimming and Cbeebies! Having our own sunbeds just steps away from the pool was fantastic. Extremely well equipped with excellent maid service. We loved breakfast on the roof terrace - such a view!
Would recommend this for families but possibly not toddlers due to the stairs. A quiet resort, perfect for chilling out and family time. We are returning and are really looking forward to it.

Clean, fresh, modern villa with all mod cons. We particularly appreciated the unexpected extras such as the iPod dock, beach equipment and WiFi. The location is ideal; an unspoilt area of the Western Algarve, close enough to beaches, restaurants and supermarkets without feeling overwhelmed by other visitors.

Our children (10 and 9) particularly enjoyed checking out all of the many swimming pools on the complex. We may have been lucky to get 23C for October, but we certainly took advantage. Salema was brilliant! A largely undiscovered gem of a beach, with seafood restaurants to match.

Plan to go again before too long, and hope to stay in same villa.
