I had the absolute pleasure and good fortune to take a week of golf lessons with Ian Stallard at the Parque da Floresta Golf Resort in the Algarve this month. I cannot say enough about the experience. I am a beginner golfer and had only taken a few lessons in the US prior to arriving in Portugal. I had never...

We had a week free to get some summer sunshine and opted for Algarve and this James Villa. Easy to get to from Faro in under 90minutes and check in was really quick and easy at the resort. A superb view from the villa (97) and enjoyed a week of uninterrupted sunshine (although it's windy at this end of the...

The resort may be a bit dated now, but it is still as beautiful as ever and boasts amazing facilities. The surrounding area is very lovely and the poll by the spa is especially inviting. There is a great beach nearby and many more along that coastline, I would reconfigure it for everybody.

I visited Parc da Floresta in July 2016 for two weeks with my family. While there I arranged a programme of golf lessons with Ian Stallard, the local golf pro. In the end, I took five lessons and win hole splaying with Ian. The lessons were fantastic. Ian is a natural teacher as well as great company. He makes things...

Writing this from my beautiful villa, half way through my holiday, after having played my 5th round of golf on this awesome course. The villas are about an hour from Faro, away from the 'usual' destinations of Vilamoura and albufeira. Really easy to find by car even for first timers. The resort villas are breathtaking in their splendour and extremely...

Beautiful quiet location. The villas are gorgeous and you never feel overlooked. This is our second visit to the resort and it was a lot quieter this time. Not sure if that was because we went before the school holidays or not. Was definitely getting busier as we left but this will never be an overly busy location. A car...

Please note this si a review of the whole of Parque Da Floresta and NOT the villa we stayed in. Having stayed at villas here since 2009 we decided to return again this year with our family and grand children. The last time we visited was in 2007. Since then, sadly the owners, Vigia, have gone bust and the Parque...

We booked a villa here through James Villas. First impression was coloured by a sign at a sign at the entrance advertising 300 villas for sale. As we drove through the resort, now renamed Santo Antonio, it became apparent that their past financial problems have not been fully resolved. Road surfaces showed signs of subsidence, many villas appeared abandoned, and...

“Rent from one of the sites where you get photos of the precise villa you're getting or direct from owners. Don't rent from the management company as they share the rentals around and won't tell you in advance: you may not get the best property/location. Exchange e-mails with the owners for extra information, eg. precise location of villa, exposure to wind etc. and use satellite view in google maps.”
