The villa is situated in a protected Nature Reserve and therefore is secluded and unspoilt, with no development permitted in the vicinity. During the spring, walks around the property are outstanding, as this part of the Algarve becomes a botanist's dream. Our knowledge of the region can assist in researching specific interests. My parents wrote numerous books and articles on birdwatching, wildlife, arts & crafts and the cultural traditions of Portugal and Spain.
The choices of beaches is endless - all beautiful, but all different - from the family friendly beaches of Burgau, Luz, Salema and Lagos to the Internationally acclaimed wild beaches of the West Coast which are a surfer's paradise, awe inspiring and invariably almost deserted even in high summer.
Local villages and towns:
Burgau is a small and picturesque fishing village with narrow streets tumbling down to a slipway lined with colourful fishing boats. This bay is flanked by spectacular cliffs and offers a family friendly beach, restaurants and shops. A three minute drive or an easy 30 minute walk from the villa. The Burgau Sports Centre has tennis courts, squash courts, a swimming pool which is heated during winter months and also offers children's activities.
The beautiful and lively village of Luz offers water sports, a wide beach and more restaurants and night life. The attractive and historic town of Lagos with its Marina and walled town and dramatic beaches offers large shops, cafes and great night life. Sagres, the most south westerley point in Europe, is a 20 minute drive west.
Sports available locally include horse riding, water sports, tennis, scuba-diving, archery, deep-sea fishing, jeep safaris, gyms, boat trips and spectacular walks both inland and along coastal paths. Water Parks and Zoomarine are approximately a 40 minute drive, with Lagos Zoo only 15 minutes away. During the summer months there are many events occurring throughout the Algarve. One that we can highly recommend is FIESA International Sand Sculpture Festival at Armacao de Pera.
A new Autodrome has recently opened, around a 25 minute drive away, between the towns of Lagos and Portimao. It is considered to be the most advanced in the world and the top racing teams are using it for testing purposes prior to the Formula 1 season. It is hoped it will become part of the Formula 1 circuit by 2018. At present it holds International Superbike championships and other racing car events. There is also an International Go-Kart circuit which is available for the general public to enjoy. If you are interested in motorsports check out their agenda for the forthcoming season on www.autodromodoalgarve.com
The Algarve is renowned for its top golf courses and there are five courses within close proximity:
Parque da Floresta is a 5-10 minute drive away and is a 18 Holes Par 72. It is a spectacular, although hilly course and can be challenging for beginners as it has been carved out of the hilly landscape. Boavista is a 10 minute drive away and is a 18 Holes Par 71. The course is integrated into the natural terrain overlooking Lagos and Monchique mountains. Palmares is a 15 minute drive and is an 18 holes Par 72, combining links-style golf on the first nine holes with a slightly more hilly back nine. It has breathtaking scenery and is renowned for its annual Almond Blossom tournament week in February. Penina is a 20 minute drive away and has an 18 hole Championship course Par 73, a 9 hole resort Par 35 and a 9 hole Academy course Par 30. It was laid out by Sir Henry Cotton.

About Book Algarve
The villa (Quinta dos Almarjoes) has belonged to my family since it was built in 1968 and it’s the place where I grew up and call ‘home’. However, since 2006, the villa and gardens have changed almost beyond recognition as it’s been developed by my husband and I as unique holiday destination. Whilst the villa has changed the location remains the same; unspoilt, tranquil and traditionally Portuguese.
Book Algarve purchased this villa in 1968
Why Book Algarve chose Budens
The villa is very private, spacious and well equipped. Its perfect location enables guests to have a relaxing and peaceful holiday - and yet it's still close to excellent local bars, restaurants, beaches, golf courses and the attractive town of Lagos. Beautiful landscaped private gardens surround the terraces which have been restored by a professional garden designer. Paths wind through palm trees and tropical plants to secluded seating areas where one can hide away with a good book. For al fresco dining there is a BBQ near the pool and close to the covered seating area. The villa has many unique features including, private pool, games room & large areas for playing ball. A shaded terrace offers a cool area for younger children to play or for parents to keep a mindful eye on the pool. Children are very welcome - if the children have a great holiday, then so do the parents! Through our extensive knowledge of the area and an information pack available on arrival, tourists can gain the most from their stay and from the Algarve in general.
What makes this villa unique
The villa is totally unique, away from all the hassle and bustle, it’s situated amongst eight acres of land set in a traditional Portuguese valley within the Parque Natural do Costa Vicentina. Although peaceful and tranquil it’s also close to the villages of Burgau & Luz and the beautiful town of Lagos. The villa is furnished with all those essential items to make it a holiday to remember and is a regular destination for many returning visitors. We have received some lovely comments both in our Guest Book and through Tripadvisor.
