Villa Kelly Louise, 5 bedroom villa, Parque da Floresta Resort
Villa Kelly Louise is located on the Parque da Floresta Golf and Leisure Resort on the more quiet western end of the Algarve. It is near the village of Budens and borders the nature reserve of Costa Vincentina. The west coast of Portugal with its stunning rugged scenery is close by. The nearest beaches are Boca do Rio, beautiful but with no facilities, and Salema, 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. Why not take a trip on the Dolphin Seafari on the rib boat, ( as used by the Navy and Greenpeace) from Lagos Marina or explore the caves around the coast on the "Bom Dia" , stopping off for a barbecue at one of the many secluded beaches. ( These trips can be booked in advance ).
