Casa do Artur is a well appointed villa in Vale do Lobo set in a landscaped square away from roads offering peace and safety for children. Only a 5 min walk down the majestic sandstone cliffs leads you to miles of gleaming white sands and a beautiful blue sea. A 5 min walk down the road provides you with the main entrance to the beach with restaurants and bars for all tastes and value including French, Italian, Chinese , clothes shops and newsagents. In the evening, live bands play every night throughout the summer. Vale do Lobo has two championship golf courses and a tennis centre.
My wife and I live outside the beautiful city of Canterbury. We love Vale do Lobo and we try to visit the villa as often as possible and love to bring all our friends. Both our children have been coming to Vale do Lobo since they were babies.
Julia and Graham Phebey purchased this villa in 1998
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!!
You can't ask for a more convenient position, just 5 mins walk from a beautiful beach, bars and restaurants and an fabulous view to enjoy from the roof terrace at any time. With so many golf courses within 20 miles, from the viewpoint of a golfer ,it is heaven on earth!
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.
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.
