Quick response from the owner and good communication during the booking process. The villa tunred out even better then expected.
Not that the photos are bad, but you'll get a better impression as soon as you arrive there.
The place Budens does not have that much to offer, but we rented a car so from Sagres to Albufeira. Everything was max. 1 hour drive away.
The villa itself was in a very tranquil neighbourhood. Only at the swimmingpool you see more guests, but not crowdy at all.
I would recommend this stay to everyone.
If I have any negative comments at all?
The toaster doens't work very well.
Also the drying frame in the kitchen is of poor quality.
Minor things though. I wished I was still there :-)
I will try to upload some pictures soon.

The townhouse was lovely, bright and modern with good facilities. The roof balcony is great for private sunbathing but the pool by the Conference Centre always had plenty of bed available If you prefer the pool. We had a couple of minor issues which were sorted immediately by Victoria at Golf and Sun holidays and the whole booking process was very easy and professional. Parque de Floresta was a flourishing resort up until a few years ago but has been hit by the recession, now under new ownership the new company are trying to revive the resort, the Reception and Bar/Restaurant on entering this side of resort has closed down but to be honest that suited us as it was very quiet so very peaceful. The surrounding area is in not touristy but close enough to nightlife if wanted (Lagos - €25-30 euros in taxi). O'Tiagos in Budens is a 5/10 min easy walk and a decent restaurant - try the steak hot stone! Salema (5 min drive) has a couple of bars and good choice of restaurants, MiraMar was the best for fish in Salema as well as the beach restaurant at Ingrina (10-15 min drive). celeirio on the main road after Budens towards Lagos is very good slightly pricier but more like fine dining. Lidl is 5 mins drive towards Val di Bispo, Intermarche at Budens is okay for last minute essentials/daily bread etc. but for a big shop the larger Intermarche or Continente at Lagos are only 15 mins drive and have better choice and are cheaper. My husband played golf at PDF book in advance for competitions or early late slots! He also played Espiche, Boa Vista and Palmeras at Odiaxere all very good!! Competition at Espiche on thurs 8 am, €22 just turn up!!
