We really could not fault Villa Joia. It was the perfect base for our 10 day stay. An excellently equipped Villa that left us wanting for nothing. One the single occasion we needed to contact Natalie & Ian they were prompt and helpful in their response. The Villa is so comfortable we could've stayed in and cooked for the 10...

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.

About the neighbourhood
The authentic fishing villages of Burgau and Salema are both within a 10 minute drive. Going West, the coast road then leads you to the Atlantic-facing Vila do Bispo before winding back to the most westerly point of the Algarve, Cape St Vincent, on the other side of historic Sagres and its fortress. From there, the coast road north takes you to Aljezur, a surfers' paradise in the heart of the Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina Nature Reserve.
