About David Hallworth

Having worked for 35 years in the finance sector, I retired in 2004 and now fill my time with golf (which could always be better), enjoying our grandchildren, photography, computing and using my work acquired skills as Bursar for a local Methodist Circuit.

David Hallworth purchased this house in 1995

Why David Hallworth chose Budens

We first visited Parque da Floresta in 1994 and fell in love with the place. A return visit the following year was enough to persuade us to purchase one of the new houses then being built in the main Golf Village.

We own the house with two other couples and have a formal sharing agreement but because I have the time, it's me who does most of the lettings administration.

Parque da Floresta is situated in the heart of the unspoilt Western Algarve, away from the crowds of the busier tourist centres.

What makes this house unique

The house, being located in the middle of the golf course, is popular with golfers and our very close proximity to the pool and other resort facilities makes us one of the prime locations in the main Golf Village.

For the more active holidaymaker, we are only 50 meters from the Gym complex (which also houses the Spa for those who want a more relaxing holiday!).

Salema is the nearest fishing village with a large beach and many restaurants and can be reached by car in 5 mins. Lagos, the nearest large town is about 20 mins away with its marina, shops, restaurants, nightlife and numerous boat trips. There is a Lidl supermarket in Vila do Bispo, about 10 minutes drive west.

Lagos is steeped in history, the old slave market is now used for exhibitions of local artists. The church and museum nearby illustrates many centuries of influence from before Roman times and well worth a visit for the whole family.
