About Christine Valentine

We currently live in the south of England between Henley and Marlow. Both keen golfers, we fell in love with the area and the Boavista Golf Course.

Although not quite old enough to retire, we do plan in the future to use the villa extensively. In the meantime we welcome guests!

Christine Valentine purchased this villa in 2015

Why Christine Valentine chose Lagos

The western Algarve feels more like the "real" Portugal. Amongst the most friendly and welcoming people we have met in our travels.

Exploring the amazing coastline reminds us of Cornwall (but with sunshine)

Just a short hop to the mountains and wilder west coast, the villa is ideally placed whether you like to explore or just relax by the pool.

What makes this villa unique

The high build quality , generous room sizes, fabulous views and private position within a high quality Golf Resort sold the villa to us.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

We loved our stay at christines villa.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The villa was exactly as described on owners direct. Four beautiful bedrooms with a patio on the two at the back of the property. This had fantastic views over the golf course and surrounding areas. All bedrooms were beautifully furnished and all had fantastic en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen has literally everything you need with a dishwasher and washing machine. Two items we think necessary in a villa holiday. A beautifully furnished lounge/dining room. The pool area is excellent with plenty of comfortable loungers and large eating areas.

The villa is modern and is extremely well maintained. Cleaned daily and the pool was cleaned three times during our 10 day stay.

We are golfers so the location is ideal for us and the golf course is fantastic although fairly expensive and very busy. Book tee- times weeks in advance. The golf club is friendly and welcoming. We didn't use the spa but again it looks very luxurious.

We are already planning our holiday at this villa next year.

Absolutely stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa Rennie and Christine, we had a wonderful time! Could not of asked for any more, every need was catered to and we had such a relaxing holiday. The interior of the villa is decorated beautifully and we really enjoyed having our own pool to relax in during the day. The electric pool cover was a bonus as the pool was never cold when we got in on a morning. We made full use of the kitchen and it was lovely to have a BBQ one evening whilst sitting outside having a drink. Lagos is only 5 minutes away in a taxi, and the free shuttle bus run by the resort was really handy for visiting Luz also.

The daily maid service was such a help with having a large party, with the beds made, rubbish being taken out and even the dishes washed if we had left some to soak!

Some of the activities we enjoyed was the dolphin watching with the excursion company 'Days of Adventure', the water park Slide and Splash, the beaches 'Camilo', 'Praia de Luz', and 'Don Ana', and visiting the Marina. We had a lovely lunch at 'The Orangery' bar and restaurant, and would really recommend 'Nah Nah Bah' restaurant for its huge portions and amazing food. We also really enjoyed karaoke at the Star Bar on Sunday night.

Really hope to be back one day, and we can't stop telling all our friends and family what an amazing stay we had. Couldn't recommend this place enough, and thank you Rennie and Christine for all your help before and after our stay.

Lovely villa and pool. Spacious living accommodation

8 of us stayed here in August to celebrate my husband's birthday. The villa was lovely with all 4 bedrooms having en suite bathrooms and beautifully decorated. There is a large, spacious kitchen/lounge

area. There are stunning views of the golf course from the upstairs balcony.

Nice pool with decent sunbeds and lots of shadey and sunny spots. I couldn't recommend the villa and its location enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful Holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We all had a wonderful holiday in our favourite location of Boavista, enjoying the on- site golf & tennis & nearby Lagos with its great choice of bars & restaurants.

Having stayed previously at this villa two years ago, it was very much as we remembered it, with the added improvement of the patio barbecue which we made good use of & the solar heating of the pool was also greatly appreciated by everyone.

If you are asking us to be critical, the only aspect we would point out is that the kitchen could be a little better equipped as, being a party of seven, there was a regular shortage of glasses (especially tumblers so we bought some in the supermarket! ), bowls and serving dishes. Table mats & a measuring jug would be a good addition too but we only mention these as you are asking for comments.

The daily maid service was invaluable with a large party.

There is no doubt that we all had a great family villa holiday in a perfect location with wonderful weather and can't wait to return!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This is a beautiful villa with everything you could want - loads of space - there were 7 of us and it never felt crowded - wonderful pool - always warm - almost like getting in a bath by the end of the day and the cover means it is not a shock getting in early in the morning. The villa was cleaned every day and the maids took the rubbish away . Great service from the owner before we arrived and the service on site from the Careways office was really good - the previous visitors had damaged a few things but they were mended the same day they were reported. Any visitors should make sure they take advantage of the free shuttle bus service from the resort to Lagos and Luz which was a brilliant service and picked up literally across the road from the villa - just be aware that in August taxis are not so easy to come by so a car is probably advisable if you want to get out and about. Would definitely recommend the villa.
