About Paul Ronan
Paul Ronan. I live in County Tipperary, Ireland and am married with 4 children ranging in age from 16 to 23, they all still come to Portugal with us on holiday which I think says a lot about the resort and area.
Paul Ronan purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Paul Ronan chose Budens
We visited Parque da Floresta 10 years ago and fell in love with the resort and Western Algarve, so unspoilt, with beautiful countryside and beaches. I originally owned a town house and built the villa in 2006. Ease of access with numerous cheap flight options was another deciding factor.

Lovely villa in beautiful location
We stayed in this villa for a week and loved it. It is located in a pretty estate which has it's own golf course. It comfortably housed 8 of us (4 adults and 4 children). It had everything you could need and was immaculately kept. The pool was heated and a good size. Gardens were beautiful and there are lovely views from the balconies. The owner was very helpful and answered all questions quickly. It was fairly close to Lagos and there is a pretty little fishing village just a 10 minute drive away. You do need a car. We hope to return next year.
Thanks Sharon glad you enjoyed your holiday.
A lovely villa in peaceful surroundings
This is our second visit to this property. It hasn't disappointed on either occasion. All amenities within a walk/short drive, well appointed villa, great private and resort pool and decent value golf.
We hope to visit again.
Great time in Budens !
The house is very pleasant and practical for holidays in family or between friends. It is ideally situated between Sagres and Lagos, near some pleasant beaches, in a frame of peace and greenery. We hadn't met them, but we felt very well welcomed by Paul, his owner, and Carmo who takes care of the house!
Thank you Aurelie for your comments. Yes the western Algarve is a beautiful unspoilt part of Portugal. I hope we can welcome you back in the future.
