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.
Pool / Spa
Thank you, Bill, for another wonderful stay in your villa. Having stayed there for a couple of years previously, we were re-inventing the holiday this year following the loss of my husband, by taking wider family along too. It worked like a dream! The villa is perfectly spacious for 6 adults with comfy beds and lovely en-suites and plenty of spaces to sit and read or chat so that we could be together when we wanted and have time on our own too. The weather was the most variable I've ever known, but the amenities are so good that it didn't really matter at all. The kitchen is amply supplied so that we had the option of cooking when we didn't want to eat out and the pool is a real delight. Thank you.
Lovely villa with heated pool in great location. Communications with owner very easy, would definitely recommend and will return
So pleased everything was o/k for you !
A Tranquil Holiday with Quality & Comfort
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.
The best place we have stayed at Parque De Floresta!
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.
Great villa, fantastic apect
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.
For taking the time to give lovely review
Comfortable but very windy
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.
