About Rachel Wright

Our family ( including 3 teenage boys) have been coming to this wonderful part of the Algarve for over 20 years and it is the perfect antidote to our busy hectic lives in the UK. We have enjoyed many a long summer break here either by the pool, on the golf course or body boarding on the west coast.

We know the area extremely well and will be very happy to advise on restaurants, car hire, golf club hire , the best beaches and even on where to go rock climbing.

Why Rachel Wright chose Budens

We designed this villa to keep our 3 active boys busy so it offers a unique games room compete with pool table and decorated with interesting sports memorabilia. Outside is a table tennis table and a good size swimming pool which is perfect for both keen swimmers and family fun .

What makes this villa unique

The seating on the upper patio outside the kitchen area is the perfect pace to start and finish the day . There are views out across the resort and over to the sea at Salema.

There is also a beautiful 'big window' in the lounge area where you can watch the sunrise and then later in the evening be mesmerised by the twinkling lights of Luz and beyond.

This villa lives exceeds all that is promised.

  • 5 of 5

The property certainly lived up to and exceeded our expectations - immaculately clean and lots of wow factors - heated pool great - superb terrace areas - generous welcome pack etc. The proximity to Salema (which is perfect - great sandy beach, variety of restaurants and bars) is very convenient and for 7 euros a minibus would collect six of us and take us to the town! Despite losing the golf course is excellent. Cannot speak too highly of the villa. Will be returning.

Golf Magic

  • 4 of 5

We chose this Villa primarily because our teenage son is golf mad! We were a little weary as we don't usually rent villas in built up areas but this lived up to the description, images and our expectations. It was wonderfully clean, well kept, superb quiet location on a very friendly comfortable golf course. The instructions were extremely exact and easy to follow, the welcome pack was VERY welcoming and everything went exceptionally well. We would certainly recommend this to our friends and family and hopefully we will be able to revisit ourselves.
