About Bill Radford

We are UK based and have owned the property for 13 years. We spend a considerable amount of time at the Villa ourselves as we are keen golfers and love the relaxed and peaceful atmosphere at Parque da Floresta. There is a lot to do in the area but you can just as easily do nothing as everything is available at the resort.

Bill Radford purchased this villa in 2002

Why Bill Radford chose Budens

Since we bought this property in 2002 its proved to be great success

We love the location and facilities of the area.

What makes this villa unique

We love to have lunch on the balcony overlooking the golf course

and then to retire the pool for the rest of the day.

A Tranquil Holiday with Quality & Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We were immensely impressed from the beginning to the end of our Villa stay in Santo Antonio Golf Resort, Budens, The accommodation was film star quality, the cleanliness was faultless and the views, together with the peaceful tranquility were exactly what we wanted (not forgetting the heated swimming pool!).

The golf course was in good condition and a great test for players of all standards without being over-whelming (or stupidly expensive). The clubhouse was well stocked and staffed, plus the '19th Hole' served it's purpose admirably!

Many thanks to Bill, our Villa owner, who allowed us to rent his holiday home.

Highly recommended!!

The best place we have stayed at Parque De Floresta!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there this year (July/Aug 2016). We loved the space and the quiet surroundings on the edge of Parque De Floresta. I suppose the only thing that we weren't sure about was how to use the TV and we had to hire a dongle for the internet. But we didn't notice any of that particularly as we were too busy enjoying the lovely pool and the surrounding area. The owner was a delight in all our dealings. We have stayed in a number of places there over the years, but this was our favourite.

Fantastic villa at a great location. We've stayed in a few villas on Parque De Floresta and this is one of the best. Great views down the 13th. The restaurants in Salema are a must. Well recommended.

Comfortable but very windy

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. Villa & the resort are stunning. Pool was perfect size & temperature. Lounge furniture a bit uncomfortable. Wifi not at the villa but could get it at the Spike bar or restaurant. Does have Sky where we watched England regain the Ashes. Location is quite exposed and some days it was very windy. Fantastic beach at Borderia.

Perfect Peace

  • 5 of 5

The description of the villa did not do justice to the article itself as the villa was perfect for our family peace. Pool and view of the 13th fairway just begged us to laze around and soak up spring sunshine. The many local restaurants did drag us out of an evening, or the conviviality of the Spike Bar called, but the tranquility of Villa 73 was a tonic sorely needed from a busy schedule.

Go to Parc de Florestra and let the cares and stresses fall away!

The nearest town is Lagos which is 15 miles away, with larger supermarkets, restaurants, bars, boutiques and a yacht marina.
