Parque da Floresta is situated amidst the beautiful rolling countryside of the unspoiled Western Algarve, designed by the famous Spanish architect Pepe Gancedo, whose masterpiece is the well-known Torrequebrada project, in Spain. Here at Parque da Floresta he has given continuity to his concept of course design, which is not to use much earthmoving, even when natural conditions are adverse.
