We arrived at the resort (about an hour and 15mins from Faro airport) late at night, and the receptionist was welcoming and informative. I was shocked when he said our villa (James Villas, 97) was another 2 mile drive away, I didn't realise how big the complex was! Our villa was absolutely huge and of a very high standard. The...

Parque da Floresta is in such a beautiful location,our Villa was of a very high standard. You are so close to so many beautiful beaches and villages. The Parque itself did not offer much entertainment except for the bowling club, here you had quizes live music and childrens games.

Played Parque da Floresta in July and found it to be in serious need of watering on fairways. We had to keep buggies on the concrete paths which meant that with the endless sloping fairways the balls kept on rolling and we were hiking around all over the place. Difficult to see white balls on parched light brown fairways and...

We stayed in one of the villas in phase II with a (distant) sea view, booked via James Villas, and as such loved every moment of it. The resort is huge, in my view getting very built-up in some areas, so make sure you check which villa/townhouse you rent to avoid disappointment, but all immaculately maintained. As this is a...

We are on our last day of our stay at 23 parque da floresta. We managed to get our 3 bed villa at a great last minute deal with James villas. Booking was smooth and as we were taking out 7 month old son, we requested a travel cot and high chair. The villa was spotless when we got here,...

My wife and I stayed in Villa 213 at the Parque de Floresta which is located away from the main hub of the resort, on top of a small hill and overlooking the golf course and towards the resort itself. Rented smoothly via James Villas, the villa was huge for just the two of us and we kept losing each...

My husband and I stayed at this resort only last week, in Villa 213 booked through James Villas. We did book a rather large villa for just the 2 of us, but we fell in love with it when we booked last year and got it for a really good price. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. It was...

We chose a villa at Parc da Floresta for its location.

“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.”
