About Paul Ronan

Paul Ronan. I live in County Tipperary, Ireland and am married with 4 children ranging in age from 16 to 23, they all still come to Portugal with us on holiday which I think says a lot about the resort and area.

Paul Ronan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Paul Ronan chose Budens

We visited Parque da Floresta 10 years ago and fell in love with the resort and Western Algarve, so unspoilt, with beautiful countryside and beaches. I originally owned a town house and built the villa in 2006. Ease of access with numerous cheap flight options was another deciding factor.
