Budens villa description

This spacious four-bedroomed villa sleeping up to 8 enjoys a spectacular, yet extremely private plot on the beautiful Parque da Floresta golf course. From every window of every room, the house commands a view, down to the sea and surrounding countryside, which is quite simply breath-taking.

Guests have access to golf at 40% off green fees, tennis, a spa, gorgeous beaches, charming fishing villages and the heady nightlife in the walled city of Lagos. Something for all the family to discover and enjoy....

Villa 103 enjoys one of the best positions at Parque da Floresta. The views are unparalleled but the poolside remains a very private place, perfect for those lazy days in the sun. Comfortable sun beds and the swaying fronds of the palm trees in the surrounding garden just add to that feeling of sensuous relaxation....

The villa is fourteen years old and comfortably appointed with all you need to feel at home on your holiday. The bedrooms, which are at pool level, comprise two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms, offering the possibility for two families to share comfortably. There is an ensuite shower room to the master bedroom and a very large family bathroom with separate bath and spacious walk-in shower. A poolside shower and two separate loos add to the amenities.

Upstairs, there is a spacious open plan living space, from lounge with satellite TV, DVD and CD players, to dining room with seating for 8, to the well-equipped kitchen.

There is a terrace at this level with a built-in BBQ and outside dining furniture, facing South and slightly West. The view is truly magnificent from this spot and simply amazing as the sun goes down.

                              For the sports enthusiast, Parque da Floresta has much to offer. The golf course is beautifully landscaped, enjoying spectacular views and offering some challenges. Children are catered for at the Golf Academy, as are adults wishing to improve their game. There are four hard tennis courts with coaching available and there is a football academy run during the summer months. The spa includes a gym and offers some classes, and the large communal pool is sited directly in front of it. For those preferring a little less activity, the spa offers luxurious treatments.....

                              For parents needing some time off, Parque da Floresta runs a kids club, providing hours of supervised entertainment. There is also a lovely separate shallow pool and playground by the main communal pool, providing the perfect place for little ones.

                              Beyond Parque da Floresta to the West is a protected National Park. This means that this area and its coast remain extremely unspoilt by tourism. There is a variety of lovely beaches, the South coast ones being perfect for small children, whilst the West coast offers the challenge of Atlantic surf. To the West, you will see amazing sunsets, Henry the navigator's historic fort providing one of the most spectacular locations from which to view them. For nightlife, there is a great selection of bars and restaurants in the old town of Lagos. Nearer to PDF, Salema offers some charming fish restaurants right on the beach.


                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2008

                              About the owner: We are a British couple with three children, a dog and a cat. We live in Amsterdam with the pets, one daughter lives in Milan, one in London and our son visits us during his school holidays. All of us love to go to our villa in Portugal whenever possible, to enjoy the relaxing and healthy lifestyle there.

                              Why the Owner Chose Budens:
                              We first visited this area in 1999 when our children were very young. Since then, we found ourselves drawn back again and again, not only by our children who loved our holidays there, but also by how unspoilt this beautiful corner of Europe remains. The number of stunning beaches in this area is amazing! In short, this is a spot which offers total relaxation or an abundance of sporting and leisure activities - the choice is yours!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Our beautiful, luxurious villa has been cleverly designed to make the most of its location, providing spectacular, panoramic views towards the ocean and surrounding countryside combined with total privacy on the terraces, by the pool and in the garden.
