Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at Villa 158 was wonderful. The villa itself is laid out perfectly. We have two small children and with all the bedrooms being off the main living area it was perfect. The villa offers everything you could want and the service we received from enquiring about the property a few months prior to our stay and even after was second to one. I would highly recommend a stay at this villa. Holmes family

My family had a fabulous stay at Parque de Floresta. The villa far exceeded our expectations - it was beautiful and well kept with all the facilities you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. Victoria made sure our stay was hassle free. Travelling with small babies can be a bit of a worry however Victoria ensured we had cots, sterilizers and stair gates which meant we could relax immediately. It really made a difference to our holiday knowing we had a friendly English-speaking contact on hand should anything go wrong.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely superb. The location is wonderful. Fantastic views all around. I cannot put into words how wonderful the villa is. It has everything you will need. The communication from the owners was first class. The added service of a mid week towel change and the maid clean half way through the holiday, was great. We received great directions from the owners and help with car rental. We went to Bom Dia at Lagos marina and booked several trips. The kayaking trip was superb as was the four hour sailing trip We also booked a jeep safari to the mountains which was just brilliant. Having a wonderful villa to come back to at the end of a busy day was a joy! We will be returning! We honestly could not find fault with anything. I would recommend the villa without hesitation.

villa golfinho in budens

  • 3 of 5

Villa golfinho is goed onderhouden en van alle comfort voorzien. de beschrijving van het huis wordt geen melding gemaakt over het feit dat zeer regelmatig het water wordt afgesloten op Parque da Floresta. Tijdens ons 14-daags verblijf is twee maal het water een hele dag afgesloten geweest. Dat betekent geen gebruik van wc, douche of keuken en geen drinkwater. Bij aankomst in het huis ligt er een informatiemap klaar waar op de eerste bladzijde al melding gemaakt wordt van de waterafsluiting. Het is dus een bekend probleem waar desondanks van te voren nooit melding van is gemaakt. Op de twee ongemakkelijke dagen na was het verblijf verder heerlijk.

Owner's Response: Dear Joan, Thank you for your review. The water is supplied by the local council and just like everywhere else in Portugal can be cut without warning. The water was not cut daily but occurred twice during your 14 day stay. Once was to repair a major burst pipe that affected not only the resort but over 5000 houses in the vicinity and the villages of Almadena, Budens and Salema. There were restaurants without water too unfortunately. The water was back on in the evening. The second occasion was for a few hours again due to a burst pipe outside the resort but the local council having to cut the water to repair a pipe. While this is inconvenient and regrettable it is totally beyond our control. We do advise in our folder that water can be cut without warning as this can happen in Portugal during the main summer months. It is not unique to Parque da Floresta. It is rather sad and very disappointing that you have given our villa a 3 star rating due to an external problem. Such that had nothing to do with the villa services provided and was was not unique to our villa.

2kms or a 5 minute drive to the secluded golden beach of Salema, which is also a pretty and unspoilt fishing village full of charm where you can find numerous traditional restaurants. 20 minutes to the fabulous West Coast beaches.


Faro is the nearest airport, and approximately a 1 hour drive. The distance is 100kms. Lisbon Airport is approximately 2 and a half hours drive and around 312kms in distance. Seville Airport is approximately 2 and a half hours drive and around 310km in distance.


With its maze of cobbled streets bustling with pavement restaurants, and busy cafe bars, Lagos is a vibrant centre full of life, and only 16kms away. Also a town of culture and history dating back to Roman times. It was from here in 1415 that Prince Henry the Navigator launched his fleet and set the stage for Portugal's Age of Discovery. Right out to the west is the port of Sagres and spectacular headland of Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point in continental Europe.
