Guestbook comments from the owner
Many thanks for the use of your Villa all the family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The Villa was very well located. Your help in making arrangements for keys, taxi's etc was also much appreciated and helped make our stay all the easier and was therefore much appreciated. When we re visit Portugal we would definitely look to use your Villa again. Hamish North July 2013

My wife and I have been visiting and staying in this villa every year for the past 20 years or so. It's almost like going home again as the villa is so comfortable, so well finished and so ideally placed to experience the delights of Vale do Lobo and the greater Algarve. Having visited the villa in every season over the years I can tell the reader that the villa is wonderfully cool during the summer months and very snug in the chillier winter and spring seasons. The villa is ideally placed in this magnificent resort, just a few minutes walk to the beach, the shopping area, the restaurant complex and of course to some of the finest golf real estate in Europe. We will be back, again and again I daresay until hell freezes over. Wonderful, wonderful villa.
Gem of a Place!
We've just got home after a fabulous ten day stay in this lovely villa in a quiet residential (older) part of Vale do Lobo. The location was ideal for us and the facilities available (full very well equipped kitchen, 3 comfortable bedrooms, wifi etc) made for a great holiday.
The villa boasts a choice of three terraces so you can always chose sun or shade at almost anytime of the day and the view from the rooftop terrace particularly during the evening and at sunset was amazing.
The owners have an agreement with the nearby hotel allowing guests to use their pool as often as they like. We used it on nearly every day we were there and it was rarely busy. The hotel provides free towels and use of sun beds and there was even a lane roped off to allow fitness swimming.
From the Owner
“We love the area, and I have been visiting Vale do Lobo since I was a child. In fact , I met my wife there in 1978. Everything we need is within easy reach, but the peace and quiet is something special. It's ideal and safe for children. The place has no doubt changed dramatically over the last 40+ years, but to me is still somewhere very special. The short drive from the airport means that on many occasions we have been in the sea during the morning, and home in Kent before tea!!”
Activity and Interests
The fantastic Vale do Lobo beach is only a 5 minute walk away. Here you can walk for hours in either direction, with beach bars placed in amongst the rocks for those much needed breaks.
Faro airport is only 20 minutes by car. We would recommend a hire car for at least some of your stay to make the most of the local attractions, shops and restaurants which are varied from 5* to beach cafes.
Car hire - We have an arrangement with a car hire company at Faro airport and can offer very competitive prices to all guests with car collection from the airport.
The towns of Almancil & Quarteira are within 10 minutes drive. The market town of Loule takes about 20 minutes.
If you fancy a full day out, drive the length of the coast West to Cape St Vincent (about 2 hours) or, alternatively, go East and you can cross the Spanish border in about 45 minutes.
Vale do Lobo has most requirements covered from medical centre, supermarkets, cash machines, kids clubs, water sports etc, etc. There are very good English speaking supermarkets and butchers in Almancil which is only 10 mins drive.
