About Karen Wainwright

We live in the UK with our children, but love to escape to Portugal, as often as possible! With the flight being only 2 and a half hours and the resort being less than thirty minutes from the airport, it makes it all very easy. We hope you will enjoy the villa as much as we do!

Karen Wainwright purchased this villa in 1996

Why Karen Wainwright chose Almancil

We have been visiting the Algarve since we were children. We bought this lovely villa in a perfect location away from the road and with beautiful views over Tennis Valley.

Vale do Lobo is a great resort with lovely restaurants, bars, beaches and golf courses.

What makes this villa unique

We have renovated the villa and put in new bathrooms, kitchen, tiling, TVs with sky, wifi and air-con. You will love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Absolutely perfect for our golf and tennis tour!' - Hugh Lenon.



'You could not ask for a more comfortable villa' - Chris Foden.



'Just a quick note to say thanks for use of a wonderful villa - we just returned home having thoroughly enjoyed our trip! If anything, the pictures online don't do the villa justice! We found it brilliantly located in the resort and perfectly suited to our needs with a young family.' - Lidia

Great property in a first class location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we started looking at this property we were hooked !

The info was great and accurate and the owners were most attentive and all questions answered promptly and efficiently.

There were 4 adults in our party and the property could easily have accommodated 2 more adults or children without feeling crowed.

The management company responded promptly to questions and the cleaning and pool maintenance team did a great job.

When we had questions these were answered quickly and effectively.

I would definately go back and recommend to anyone seeking a holiday on the algarve.

Great villa providing everything you need for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days here. The owners were extremely helpful before we went, providing us with lots of information. This is a lovely area and I would highly recomend that visitors hire a car to make the most of their stay. We ate out at some great restaurants and the beaches nearby are beautiful. The villa was clean and spacious. Thank you for a great stay!

Fantastic villa and location with everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the villa and still as good as we remembered. Very clean and nicely decorated, spacious with good size rooms and lots of storage. The location is excellent, right opposite the tennis courts and a good walk to the beach and praca. We'll definitely be back again!

Exactly as advertised very clean and comfortable. A great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Even before we went the information provided was excellent and filled us with confidence. The owners could not have been more helpful and their response time to the smallest of questions was exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending both the villa and the owners to anyone considering this villa as a holiday destination. Thank You Both For A Great Time.

Jim & Catherine.

Lovely Villa, can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was clean, well equipped and perfect for a family holiday. from the moment we booked the Villa the owners were fantastic. we received so much information from them before we left regarding the villa and the local area that it made our stay so much more enjoyable. they even helped us with making bookings for the local golf course with a discount.

The pool was great and the kids loved it, it was a good move to pay the extra to have it heated at this time of year.

The only thing we didn't do and wish we had was hire a car. it is definitely a good idea to have one if you have young children, although the local taxi's were great and were always ready to pick us up within 10 minutes.

overall a great holiday in a great location in a very nice Villa. we can't wait for our next visit.

Thank you for our 3 weeks of peace in your villa.

  • 4 of 5

We took a risk staying in the Algarve in February and March, but it is beautiful. The fields are full of wild flowers and the roads are empty. The villa is charming, really well equipped and furnished and the location is perfect. Everything is within easy distance and our walks to Marias and along the beach were just lovely. Cannot recommend it enough. Thank you for the thoughtful touches.
