'Casa Cisne'

Visited by Tripadvisor
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Budens, Faro District, Algarve
'Casa Cisne' is a splendid, spacious, well maintained, resort managed property which enjoys an excellent central position on the prestigious Parque da Florestra Golf and Leisure Resort (*now known as 'Santo Antonio Villas, Golf and Spa*' ).

The property is located in Budens on the relatively unspoiled Western Algarve, close to the charming resort of Salema and offers easy access to a large number of fabulous beaches, local villages and restaurants. The villa has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme and some of the improvements include new bathrooms, kitchen, fitted wardrobes and utility room. The outside of the villa was repainted in 2013.

This south facing villa sits alongside the 12th fairway commanding superb, spectacular views of the golf course, the surrounding national park countryside and of...

Really enjoyed our stay, very comfortable, clean and spacious villa, had everything we needed. Nice big pool, pretty grounds , excellent views, Phil, the owner, was great - good communication throughout, dealing with issues as soon as he was informed. Would certainly recommend this place!

I would recommend 'Casa Cisne' but with a few caveats. This Villa does NOT have internet access. If your a Digital Professional like me, then you'll find it hard to go away for any amount of time and leave your business and clients behind. I...More

Unfortunately, wifi problems made life difficult for this guest, who needed to keep in touch with his work. There is currently no wifi directly connected to this property but a portable wifi dongle can be supplied by the resort. One was ordered for the guest....More

About the neighbourhood

Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Faro: 80.0 km
Railway: Lagos: 15.0 km
Ferry: Santander/Bilbao: 500.0 km
The easiest method is to fly to Faro and pick up your hire car at the airport. You can then take the A22 Motorway to Lagos before joining the main EN125. Its a journey time of approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. If you decide to go via the EN125 main road and miss out the motorway then it takes an extra 35 minutes or so.

I supply full and detailed directions during the booking process.

Anyone wishing to drive down and perhaps experience the splendour of the west coast of Portugal can take a ferry to either Santander or Bilbao.
