About anna murphy
Hello, we are a family of 5 with 3 lively active children that have been coming to Parque da Floresta for many years. Our children love the resort and all the super recreational facilities that it has to offer. Our eldest son (14yrs) started his golf at PDF and now has a handicap of 5! The golf pro is very encouraging to the juniors. After many years of renting we decided to buy and have enjoyed a home to home experience. All of our guests staying at our property have given us a extremely positive feedback and loved the resort.The western Algarve has many excellent cycling trials to enjoy. Western Algarve is quieter than other parts even in high season and the beaches are great especially if you enjoy water sports.
anna murphy purchased this Villa in 2005
Why anna murphy chose Budens
We love the area as it is very close to several excellent beaches and local restaurants. Fish restaurants are super and not expensive and the fish is always fresh. If you enjoy water sports there are magnificent surfing beaches nearby which offer tuition. The western Algarve offers a lovely climate as the wind cools down the hotter months allowing you to be more active than in other parts of the Algarve. The beaches are not as crowded as other areas and there is a very relaxed way of life enjoyed.
What makes this Villa unique
Our property is south facing and gets the sun all day long. It is not overlooked and has a lovely sheltered area for sunbathing in private. The villa is very close to the main spa area and this is a great bonus when you have young children. The villa has one of the largest pools on the resort and it also has pool heating. The full size table tennis table beside the pool is a great hit with our kids!

Case Leo, Parque Da Floresta
My wife and I, along with our two teenage boys, have just returned from a weeks stay at Casa Leo at the Parque da Floresta. The villa is perfect as it has all the facilities you need and has plenty of space as well as a great pool. We opted to have the pool heated which I was initially a bit worried about however it was actually a really good move and I would definitely recommend others do the same. The weather was fabulous while we were there so the pool got plenty of use by everyone and as a result the only resort facilities we tried out was the driving range (tried being the key word)
We spent some time at the nearby Bagua beach - which was a really lovely beach - and Slide & Splash as well as a couple of evenings in Lagos and Luz which I would also highly recommend.
All in all we had a great week and can definitely see ourselves going back next year but for two rather than one week.
I also just want to mention that the property management team were more than helpful when we arrived and also when we asked for some extra shade. Anna the owner was also a pleasure to deal with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Casa Leo.

Thank you Rob for your review of Casa Leo and I am delighted you and your family had an enjoyable stay and we look forward to welcoming you back for another holiday in the future. Regards Anna
Beautiful property in great area.
We spent a lovely week at this great, spacious villa. We did not use any of the facilities of PDF as the villa and surrounding area had plenty to keep us busy. They also wanted to charge us 20€ a day to use the communal pool so we opted to stay by our own. The villa is extremely well equipped and has plenty of space and beautiful seating areas for our family. One surprising aspect of the area was the breeze, which was very pleasant during the day, but meant we didn't sit out for long in the evenings!
The nearest beach is really lovely, without too much development. If you want even better beaches, though, head to the Atlantic Coast where the waves are spectacular.
Thank you for your review of our villa and delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay.
Great Villa! Great Holiday!
We had a wonderful holiday in this villa last June. It is well presented and very comfortable with a fabulous pool. This is our fourth visit to PDF and consensus was this was the by far the best. The villa had everything we needed. The resort is very closes to some great beaches and restaurants. We look forward to returning next summer!
We are a retired couple who stayed at Casa Leo in March 2014 we had a wonderful holiday. The Villa was especially comfortable, well maintained with every facility. The free WIFI was very useful for keeping in touch with family and friends. The property manager showed us around and provided all necessary information. The resort was indeed beautiful and well kept. As it is very hilly we drove the short distance to Lagos and enjoyed walking on the lovely promenade, and Marina. The views from the Villa are stunning. The pool was fabulous. We would recommend this Villa, and look forward to returning to the resort sometime in the near future.
CASA LEO , GREAT VILLA
CASA LEO - GREAT VILLA -We stayed at Casa Leo last August 2014 for two weeks, the villa was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. It was like home from home with all you needed even had the English TV channels! Well equipped kitchen and a balcony with amazing views over the golf course. The children really loved the large pool that had the sun on it all day long a real bonus along with the pool toys. The table tennis table and unlimited WIFI kept the teenagers happy along with all the numerous on site facilities like tennis, football, gym, golf and spa. Exploring different beaches every day was brilliant fun. Property manager met us on arrival and was very helpful. We would highly recommend this beautiful villa and would love to return again for another wonderful holiday.
Lovely villa, good location
We had a very nice week in this villa. It is very attractive, well equipped and nicely laid out. It is not overlooked and therefore very private. The golf resort is peaceful with a very challenging golf course however if you want to use the pool, get there early for a sunbed. The villa pool needs to be heated before you arrive to reach ambient temperature and it will cost 300 euros. Something we overlooked in the small print. The villa is a short car ride for some lovely beaches and dramatic cliffs ideal for wind surfing in wet suits as the Atlantic is quite chilly.
Numerous beautiful sandy beaches with sheltered coves all along the Western coast. The wonderfully secluded Salema beach with facilities and great restaurants is a 5 mins drive from the villa. For surfers and families alike the beaches of Zavial - 10 mins and Cordama - 20 mins away.
Faro airport is 1 hour drive away along the motorway. Car hire is strongly recommended.
Lisbon airport is a 2.5 hour drive away on the motorway.
The villa is located within a 2 minute walk to the main spa area with pools, gym, indoor pool and kids playground and kid club and restaurants.
The well stock supermarket Ecomarche is in the village of Budens a 2 minute drive away.
The historic town of Lagos with a lovely marina and plenty of shops is a 15 minute drive away.
The fishing port of Sagres with an ancient fortress is a 15 minute drive away.
There is 4 on site restaurants including 1 beside the main pool at the spa offers dining throughout the day. An Italian restaurant for casual dining beside the tennis courts/ reception. There are 4 floodlight courts with tennis coaching available from a resident LTA professional and camps during the school holidays, with competitions for all levels.
The resorts offer an extensive range of sports and leisure facilites for golfers and families alike. Beside all the golf facilities there are bikes available for hire and a great way to get the see the surrounding countryside, horse riding, bowling, archery, gym with classes and beauty spa alongside heated outdoor and indoor pools. There are an abundance of excellent local restaurants within easy driving distance. Cashpoint machine available at reception area which is staffed 24 hours.
