About Angela Seger
My husband Roy and our two boys Robert (25) and Ollie (22) live in East Finchley, North London with our two lovely black and white cats. Ollie is at University, Rob is working and Roy has recently retired and day-to-day life is pretty busy. We are quite an active and sporty family, so though we want to relax and get away from it all on holiday, we also like to have plenty to do. The facilities at Parque da Floresta (recently re-named Santo Antonio) - and the lovely sunshine provide us with lots of opportunities to have fun. We bought the townhouse ten years ago and now go there three or four times a year (The boys still go skiing in Winter).
Angela Seger purchased this House in 2007
Why Angela Seger chose Budens
We fell in love with Parque da Floresta when the children were very small, as it provided the perfect place for a sunny and relaxing family holiday. We also loved the Western Algarve as it is so much less crowded than the rest of the Algarve, yet still easily accessible from Faro airport. The sandy beaches are gorgeous and never crowded even in the height of the season. We are also keen tennis players, so this was another attraction at the resort. The weekly tournaments are very friendly and provide a good opportunity for us to make friends with other families. Finally, after renting for seven years, we bought our own golf village town house and haven't regretted it for one minute.
What makes this House unique
Having rented for many years we knew what kind of house we wanted and the best location on the resort. Our house is in the original golf village. This means it is the most convenient in terms of location for easy access to the resort facilities eg golf clubhouse, main pool, spa and gym. All are only a few minutes walk from the house. We also realised that our house was significantly larger than the other 2-bedroom houses we had rented. It has very high ceilings and a large open-plan sitting/dining area which makes it feel very spacious. There is also a good size terrace off the sitting room with views over the golf course towards the sea. In particular the bedrooms are stylishly furnished and both have sliding patio doors with direct access to the gardens.

Excellent LongTerm Stay
We spent almost 7 weeks in this villa from early March onwards. Our first impression was that it was nicer than even the photos in the listing presented. Very spacious and airy with high ceilings and lots of windows to enjoy the view all the way to the sea. Even though we apparently experienced near record cold weather and rainfall we still comfortably spent time almost every day on the terrace and up above for all day sun. And it was still a lot nicer than the weather at home in Canada. The location was perfect for us - at the more quiet Western end of the Algarve. There are beautiful sandy beaches every few kilometers and lots of trails to walk on the cliffs right along the ocean. Grocery stores are convenient and had everything we needed. We prefer to cook most of our meals and the kitchen in the villa was well stocked to accommodate that. With 3 bathrooms and the bedrooms in the lower level there was plenty of space and privacy for our adult children when they visited.
All in all an excellent villa for us. This was our first time to Portugal and we found it to be friendly and always felt safe. We hope to return!
Thank you for such a positive review Robin. So glad you enjoyed the Western Algarve and our house; in spite of the poor weather (by Portuguese standards!). It is a beautiful part of the world and always lovely to return too.
spacious and comfortable with fabulous views
This is a spacious and comfortable home with excellent facilities. The views from the balcony and sun roof are spectacular, overlooking the golf course and the distant sea. It is well equipped and even in January we used the barbecue on the balcony. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Thank you for such a positive review of our lovely townhouse and glad you enjoyed your holiday. Winter can be lovely in the Western Algarve.
Very nice well equippednice & clean
Had a lovely stay we had a goodtime. The reason weve been late with the review was that you had sent the wrong property to review!!
A very nice place
The communication from the owner was excellent. We received clear instructions about picking up keys and plenty of information about the house and facilities.
The only hiccup was that the on-duty receptionist mistakenly told us we had to pay for the wi-fi which we understood to be free. Once we informed the owner, it was very quickly sorted out with the on site house manager who provided us with a dongle.
The house was very clean and there were plenty of items to make our stay comfortable. Overall, we are very pleased with our chioce where we enjoyed a very peaceful sleep every night.
Great location, Stunning views, immaculate inside.
Love this villa as it is perfect for clubhouse and golf. It has some of the best views on the parque. The villa is immaculate inside and was equipped with everything we needed. In short perfect for our stay.
Perfect area for families
This was our first visit to the western Algarve and I must say that it was perfect in everyway. The villa is situated in a lovely quiet golf complex with all the amenities you need and with in 5 minutes drive you have some beautiful beaches as well. The villa itself is very homely and equipped with everything you need which makes for a comfortable stress free vacation. We will definitely be back.
5 minutes drive to the nearest beach. The coast has a rugged splendour with wild shores pounded by the Atlantic Ocean and magnificent long sandy unspoilt beaches which never seem crowded.
The house is located in the relatively undeveloped Western Algarve. Faro airport is an hour's drive away (Lisbon airport 2-3 hours). Car hire is highly recommended.
Nearest village is Budens which is on doorstep of resort with a well-stocked supermarket. Salema is 5 minutes drive away and other nearby villages on the coast are Sagres and Burgau. Lagos is the nearest town (15 mins drive to the east).
