We had a great week here and enjoyed our first ever trip to Portugal. The apartment east is homely, spotless and well maintained. The wi fi and TV with the UK channels all worked well. In particular, the owners very thoughtfully left a welcome pack which was perfect since we arrived late on a Saturday night and together with some tea, coffee and useful condiments we really felt that a lot of thought had gone into what people need for a week's stay. The kitchen and dining area were well equipped with everything we needed and we do like to cook! The courtyard table was a lovely place for eating breakfast or just enjoying a drink. The garden and pool areas were also lovely but unfortunately, the weather was not warm enough to swim. The area was quiet and easy to find our way around. Definitely a place for some warm winter sun!

Superb location, beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

Villa do Vale was an absolute tonic for us! The east apartment is perfectly sized for a couple and Isabel and Greg had thought of everything to make for a comfortable stay, from nice shower gel to a bottle of wine on arrival! The gardens are beautiful and afford guests plenty of opportunity for privacy and relaxation among the beautiful flowers and vines or in the cool, clean sea water pool. Beach and supermarket ten minutes away with easy access by foot or bus to the restaurants of Alvor or Praia da Rocha. Couldn't have wished for better really!

Notes:

  • This is the perfect setting for a couple wanting to relax. The property is in an estate of privately owned villas, no traffic, as it is in a cul-de-sac. Vau beach is just down the road from the estate. Guests have outdoor designated sunbathing areas, sun loungers and patios with outdoor furniture (table, chairs) - the salt water pool is available to guests (shared). Car not necessary - easy to walk to the beaches, the beautiful coastal cliffs, Praia da Rocha hub of shops, night life/Casino and down town Portimão. The area has numerous good restaurants. This is golf heaven and the apartments are great golf retreats (discount on golf). The gardens are attractive and appealing during the Spring and summer months. Activities Golf: Golf!Golf! Golf! This is golf heaven with more than 40 golf courses around. Just less than 5min. drive away is Alto Golf (18 holes); Boa Vista Golf (18 holes), home of the Henry Cooper Classic, is 15min drive away.
