Budens villa description

The spacious south facing villa built on a hillside on the edge of the 12th fairway, and just 500 metres from the Golf Clubhouse and Leisure Centre, offers superb views over the golf course to the cliffs and sea. Casa Oleiro stands in a delightful garden (1/3rd acre) with a 12m x 5m salt water pool, heating (optional). Approached by a sweeping driveway which gives seclusion without isolation. The main living rooms are on the upper level with French windows on to a large terrace. Breathtaking views of the 10th, 11th, 16th and 17th holes and the coastline. Three bedrooms on the lower level with air-conditioning and French windows on to the terraces and swimming pool. Study/4th bedroom on the upper level.

At PdF there are 4 floodlit Tennis Courts with a resident LTA professional, two bowling greens and a fully equipped Leisure Centre with heated indoor and outdoor pools. Mountain bikes, Horse Riding and Archery are also available. The Football Academy (Easter, Summer and May and October Half Terms ) is very popular. Restaurants - there are so many within 15 minutes drive, it is difficult to choose. Many charco-grill the locally caught sea food and prices reflect that this is still an unspoilt area. There are 4 different restaurants at PDF - some offering 'takeaways'. Banks in Sagres and Lagos. Cashpoint at PDF.

The Unspoilt West Algarve is famed for its beautiful sandy beaches and sheltered coves. The unspoilt fishing village of Salema is our nearest beach - 5 minutes by car.

Many other beaches within 15 minutes. The wild West coast is a 'must' where the Atlantic breakers attract surfers from all over Europe. To see the sunset dropping into the sea is a memorable & photogenic sight.

Travel and Distance : Faro International Airport is 100 kms (62 miles)via the A 22 Motorway to Lagos - approx 1 1/4 hours drive.
Car Hire strongly recommended to enjoy the area to the full.

Budens - just below the 8th hole is a 4 minute drive, the unspoilt fishing village of Salema is 5 minutes away.

                      Parque da Floresta is in the unspoilt Western Algarve midway between the historic walled town of Lagos and Cape St Vincent. The magnificent Golf Course is set amongst gently rolling hills above the fishing village of Salema with superb views over 20 miles of the Algarve coastline and the dramatic Monchique mountains.

                      Bordering the Costa Vincentina Nature Reserve the hillsides are endowed with wild flowers, birds and rare butterflies.

                      Salema, with its superb sandy beach is a typical\al small whitewashed fishing village. The fishermen land their catch on the beach where their colourful boats are moored.

                      Lagos with its harbour, old slave market, shops, restaurants and nightlife offers something a little different.

                      Shopping - an Intermarche and a bakery in Budens, mini markets, local pottery shops and open air markets selling handwoven tablecloths and home-made sweaters

                      Restaurants - there are many excellent ones within 15 minutes drive. The seafood should not be missed !

                      Other Activities: Tennis, Outdoor Bowls, Leisure Centre (Fully Equipped)

                      Golf: Casa Oleiro is located in the middle of the challenging Parque da Floresta Golf Course (PdF). Golfers - a 40% dicount on green fees and reserved starting times. The course, designed by well known Spanish golf architect Pepe Gancedo, PdF opened in 1987. Many changes and improvements have been made and PdF is now a course to suit all levels of golfer. Situated in gently rolling hills the views of the coast and the Monchique mountains are superb. Driving range and golf academy with a resident teaching professional.

                      Penina - Henry Cotton's masterpiece and the most popular course for the Portuguese Open is approx. 30 minutes drive. Palmares - originally designed by Frank Pennick, now redesigned and still one of the prettiest couses on the Algarve, with many spectacular views over the Bay of Lagos. 25 minutes from PdF.

                      Boavista and Espiche - the Algarve's newest course. 6 miles from PdF.

                      Morgado do Reguengo with 2 courses - Morgado 1 is unique in the Algarve, with a rolling parkland style. 45 mins from PdF


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: Our first visit to Portugal was in 1983 when we bought a large apartment in Salema. A new golf course was being discussed and we kept in touch with the MD of the development, who like me was a charted civil engineer. In 1987 another family and ourselves were the first to buy plots at PdF (no name in those days) long before the golf course was built. When our son Henry was a youngster, we spent half-term and Easter holidays in the sunshine enjoying golf when the UK was less hospitable. Henry was encouraged by the members and his golf developed at PdF - all worthwhile as he has qualified as a full Member of the PGA - the photo was taken at his graduation in May 2011. Henry is the Assistant Pro at Hunstanton, my own UK club. We all love the West Algarve - golf, swimming in our heated pool, the coastline, small coves and beaches, and the lovely restaurants - much cheaper than the UK !
