About Nigel Hopes
I live in England with my wife, 2 children and 2 dogs. My wife and I are both partners within PWC. We spend most of our holidays in Portugal, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country. Year purchased: 2010 We love the Algarve because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful, fairly unspoilt beaches and a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than an hours drive away.

Lovely villa in quiet golf resort
We had a great week at this lovely townhouse style villa. Very clean and spacious and close to the shared pool. Ten minutes walk to the local Intermarche and ten minutes to the golf clubhouse and restaurant. We had a car so enjoyed day trips to nearby beaches - Amado best for surf and Burgau for ambiance. Salema beach also nice and the kids enjoyed shopping in Lagos.
Book it. You won’t be disappointed!
Many thanks for taking the time to post a review. I am of course very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
As we booked this property rather late, and because its seemed there were few other properties available for our dates (August 2017), our expectations were not particulary high for this house. We were therefore amazed at the quality and size of this property. The four or so pictures on the Homeaway website really do not do it justice. It is spacious, well designed and appeared to be almost new. It is the best holiday accommodation we as a family have ever stayed in. It had a great roof top terrace with BBQ, ice cold air conditioning and is literally a stones throw from the heated pool. The house was kept spotless as it was cleaned three times a week, and fresh new towels provided as needed. Although the immediate area is quiet, with a hire car you are within 10 minutes drive of sandy beaches (Saleema was a favourite) and Lagos is only a little further away. Finally, and this may not be important to everyone, the Wifi we had here was brilliant, better than we get at home.
Overall a fantastic holiday and a property I would definitely use again.
Many thanks for your review. Delighted to hear that you had such a good time.
As yo say I need to update the photos!
All the best.
Excellent holiday again !
We were 6 adults on our 2nd visit to this most attractive location where we enjoyed the good facilities within and around the townhouse.We hired cars at Faro airport and these enabled us to play golf on local courses as well as visiting attractive locations,particularly the good restaurants.
We look forward to a 3rd vist.
We stayed for a week last July and had a wonderful time. The house is lovely, great facilities especially the roof terrace which was lovely to sit out and enjoy the views. The resort itself has a few large clean pools where you were always able to get a Sun bed. The golf facilities were excellent with a nice club house where we regularly had food and drinks. Car hire is recommended as we were also able to explore the many beautiful surrounding the area, five minute drive from salema and lovely fishing village and 15 minute drive from lagos a busier town. Overall we had a great time and are looking forward to going again this year.
The fishing village of Salema is less than 5 minutes drive and has an excellent beach. The Western Algarve is renowned as having some of the best unspoilt beaches in Europe. There are many superb beaches within a 20 minute drive of the property - visitors are not disappointed! The area is also known as one of the best for surfing in Europe.
The nearest airport is Faro approximately a 1 hour easy drive mainly on new motorway. The drive from Lisbon Airport (worth visiting the City) is around 3 hours.
Car hire is recommended but very good value in Portugal with several International and local operators at Faro Airport.
Budens is within walking distance as are the Resort facilities. The fishing Village of Salema is just a few minutes drive.
The Regional town of Lagos is 15 minutes drive away. An excellent centre for shops restaurants and facilities. The boat trips for sight seeing (dolphins and even whales from time to time) deep sea fishing are a must. Lagos Zoo is only 15 minutes drive and well worth a visit. Also Zoo Marine with its great Dolphin show and swimming with Dolphins is around a 30 minute drive.
The resort provides a great balance of activities. Golf academy football academy (in season) scuba diving, tennis academy, horse riding, bowls. Close by are some of the very best unspoilt beaches in Europe.
There is a large supermarket 2 minutes drive away and the reception is always open to deal with any queries re bookings local restaurants taxis etc.
The SPA is rated by many as 'the best in the Algarve' and the fully equipped gym has very flexible times and good group exercise classes.
