Parque da Floresta is a luxurious golf and leisure resort set in the heart of the glorious Algarve countryside. Perfect for a couple or family on holiday, Parque da Floresta boasts both one of Portugal’s most scenic golf courses and the famous Spa Floresta, the Algarve’s leading health, fitness and beauty spa. Providing unending luxury and comfort, the Parque da Floresta resort is the finest location to relax and refine your swing in the whole of the Algarve.
There are two main types of accommodation in Parque da Floresta; villas and townhouses. Although both offer the height of comfort, a Parque da Floresta villa has a private pool, around which you can sit and eat breakfast or have a glass of wine in the warm evening light.
Parque da Floresta’s most celebrated feature is the challenging 18 hole golf course upon which the park is centred on. Golfers can practice their swing before teeing off by using the state-of-the-art Vigia Golf Academy. Those staying in Parque da Floresta villas to rent get huge discounts on green fees, as well as discounts on many other local golf courses.
Aside from golf, staying in a Parque da Floresta apartment or villa can also enjoy the tennis, archery and bowls on site, and trips to the nearby Costa Vincentina Nature Reserve can be arranged, travelling by mountain bike, horse back or safari jeep. Children will also have great fun with the Floresta Fun Club for 11-16 year olds. There are even qualified scuba diving instructors to guide you through a number of courses in their swimming pools before heading out to the ocean for your first real dive.
The Algarve’s prime spa facility, Spa Floresta, is located in the heart of the resort. Upon your arrival, you will be whisked away by a personal therapist to decide on your perfect combination of health, fitness and general pampering. As well as top class spa facilities, the fitness suites and gyms are some of the most extensive in the region, and the saunas, steam rooms and spa baths never get too crowded.
If your would like to taste a little of traditional Algarve during your stay in a Parque da Floresta apartment or villa, take a trip to the fishing village of Burgau, which lies on the coast just a few miles away. The delightfully peaceful retreat has not been changed by the developers, and a disproportional number of high class restaurants have immerged in the village.
During the summer, temperatures soar to an average of over 25˚C, with daily peaks regularly reaching around 36˚C, making a Parque da Floresta villa with a pool a real luxury. Even in the winter months, (January and February), temperatures remain above 15˚C, making it ideal for golf and spa holidays avoiding the British winter blues.
A Parque da Floresta villa for rent is located 95km west of Faro International Airport (FAO), between Lagos and Sagres. There are many transfer options, including fixed price taxis and coaches, although it may be easier to hire a rental car. Finding a cheap flight from your local airport to Faro should be relatively straight forward as there are a huge number of airlines providing flights.
