From the moment we arrived and saw our welcome pack, we had a feeling it was going to be an excellent holiday and it was! We booked Casa Lavendula for a week over half term and the weather was 24-27c every day. The villa was an hours drive from Faro Airport has its own private swimming pool so the kids spent every day in it whilst we sunbathed on the loungers! We were surprised by the size of the villa. Inside the rooms were big, light and airy and all had floor to ceiling wardrobes. 2 bedrooms had double glass doors that opened straight on to pool. Upstairs has a big kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher etc and another double bedroom and a large open planned dining and sitting room with double doors leading onto a sun terrace looking over the beautiful golf course. Ideal for watching the sun set with a cold beer! We used the BBQ by the pool for a few nights and also walked down to eat out in the local village of Budens. There is an InterMarche supermarket in Budens which was really handy. The standout place we visited was Selama, about a 5 minute drive for the villa. Beautiful sandy beaches and the water was warm enough to swim in. We can recommend Atlantico and Casa Pizza for food. We highly recommended this villa and we will be booking again for 2018!
This is a lovely house in a beautiful setting near the western tip of the Algarve. There are open views across the scenic golf course which sits right behind the house.
The house is very well equipped, and furnished to a high standard with a private pool in the back garden. We had a lovely welcome pack awaiting us on arrival.
The house is part of a quiet resort in the village of Budens which sits near both the southern and western Algarve coasts.
There is a supermarket 2 minutes drive away and the pretty little coastal town of Salema is around 5 miles drive. There is a lovely beach there. The larger town of Lagos is around 25 minutes drive and
the little town of Sagres near the most westerly point of Europe is just 20 mins or so drive away.
The surfing beaches of the western coast are nearby as well as the numerous other southern beaches in the area.
My husband highly recommends the golf course which is well looked after.
The owner was attentive and helpful throughout.
I'd highly recommend this property, whether you want to just relax in the sun, play golf, tour around sightseeing, or have a go at the various watersports available nearby.
