Location:- This outstanding villa is situated on the prestigious Santo Antonio Villas, Golf & Spa, which is near the village of Budens in the West Algarve and borders the nature reserve of Costa Vincentina.

The nearest beaches to the resort are Boca do Rio, beautiful but with no facilities and Salema, 5 minutes drive away, which is busy in the summer but boasts a safe, sandy beach with plenty of beach bars and restaurants.

The tourist town of Lagos, with its bustling Marina, many souvenir shops, bars & restaurants is 10 Kms away.
