'Casa Cisne' is a splendid, spacious, well maintained, resort managed property which enjoys an excellent central position on the prestigious Parque da Florestra Golf and Leisure Resort (*now known as 'Santo Antonio Villas, Golf and Spa*' ).

The property is located in Budens on the relatively unspoiled Western Algarve, close to the charming resort of Salema and offers easy access to a large number of fabulous beaches, local villages and restaurants. The villa has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme and some of the improvements include new bathrooms, kitchen, fitted wardrobes and utility room. The outside of the villa was repainted in 2013.

This south facing villa sits alongside the 12th fairway commanding superb, spectacular views of the golf course, the surrounding national park countryside and offers glimpses of the ocean beyond. In addition, the property holds a very private position and has good-sized rooms, a larger than average swimming pool, an outdoor BBQ, lawned -gardens and a private driveway.

'Casa Cisne' is sufficiently spacious for 2 families to reside in comfort whilst smaller parties can sometimes enjoy reduced rates outside school holidays. Villa guests are able to enjoy a 40% reduction on green fees. A wood burning stove and electric radiators provide heating during the winter season.

'Casa Cisne' is perfect for those seeking either a traditional family holiday, a golf break, or an an active outdoor holiday incorporating swimming, walking, tennis, cycling or surfing! Those just wishing to chill out can relax in the resort's Spa and Gym or experience some traditional Portuguese ethnicity and hospitality in the local villages.

The Algarve region

The villa lies near the village of Budens on The Western Algarve which, along with the adjacent West Coast, is a region of outstanding natural beauty yet one which still offers a wide range of facilities. The region has become more developed in recent years but the protection afforded by its national park status means there are still areas largely untouched by tourism, along with a wide range of splendid beach facilities. During springtime, when wild flowers abound, there are some magnificent walks along the cliff tops.

12km to the east lies the interesting town of Lagos and the old part deserves a visit. There are fine beaches there also along with good shopping facilities and numerous bars and cafes.Travelling East beyond Lagos there are many resorts. Inland towards the Monchique hills you find the pleasant town of Silves which has a castle and a history of note.

Heading back towards Salema from Lagos you pass the resorts of Luz and then Burgau. To the west of Salema it is less developed and again there are many fine beaches. Next door lies the very natural Figueira whilst a popular surfing and sunbathing beach is Zavial. Sagres, with it's fort and beaches, comes next whilst further afield lies Cape St Vincent, the most westerly point of mainland Europe.

If you wish to visit the west coast it's easiest to drive into Vila do Bispo and then follow signs to two rugged and dramatic west coast beaches, Cordoama and Castelejo They are closer to the resort than you might imagine and worth a trip. It's popular with surfers and great to go there and watch the sun go down.


The villa sits in a convenient and quiet location on the Parque da Floresta Resort ( now known as 'Santo Antonio Villas Golf, Spa') . Golf, tennis, spa and restaurant facilities are close at hand whilst in school summer holidays children can participate in various organised activities on site. Its just a mile or so to the well equipped 'Intermarche' supermarket in Budens whilst the charming resort and fishing village of Salema offers numerous possibilities. There's a fine beach there and a good range of restaurant facilities, a number of which overlook the sea. Numerous other villages, coves, beaches and beach bars are within easy striking distance.The area behind the resort provides good mountain biking terrain. In springtimewild flowers abound in the fields and on the clifftops.

More specific details of beaches and restaurants are supplied during the booking process.

Wherever you go, even if it's just poolside, have a great stay in Portugal!

Best wishes, Phil

"Great house!!"

The house is huge with a great pool and BBQ area next to it. Very private. Would suit families and groups of friends alike. Lovely views onto the golf course and beyond - very chilled holiday! Would highly recommend it.
