About the property


Casa do Vale is a superb classic-style villa situated in Almancil at the heart of the Algarve's famous 'Golden Triangle'. We realise that since the recession began in 2008 there are many more properties being offered for rental, making it even more important to make the right choice. We have been renting in the Algarve since 2003 and have listened to guests' feedback. We have our own dedicated management team to look after your every need during your stay with us. Our 'Villas with a Difference' policy ensures we provide a lot more than just a villa rental! The transfer time from Faro airport is just 20 mins (22km west). The location and flexibility of accommodation cater for all holiday criteria from 'get away from it all' to family holidays to sporting activities and cultural/historic sightseeing holidays. There is something for everyone both young and old. Its central location ensures quick and easy access to all the region's multitude of activities.

Something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

What can I say. Felt like royalty for the 2 weeks we were here. Have stayed in other so-called luxury villas with similar prices but this puts them to shame. The owners have really thought about what holidaymakers expect from 5 star facilities and delivered in spades. None of that key-under-the-mat and just get on with it. Full welcome pack and met on arrival but not intrusive - just enough to make us feel special. Always at the end of a phone if we needed any assistance. Safety and security always an issue on holiday but soon put at our ease with all the info we were given. Will book to come back April 2017 for girlie 4 day break when new sauna, gym and treatments room open.

A little piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We had decided that a traditional wedding wasn't really what we wanted so we arranged to get married overseas. We wanted to keep the event intimate but fun .My fiancée had heard from a friend about Case Do Vale so we got in touch. Lesley, the owner, couldn't do enough for us and rather than just the reception at the Villa , we ended up having a civil ceremony on the property. Lesley organised everything from the flowers to the caterers; even the music. She suggested local wines , fruits and delicacies.Simply put, all we had to do was show up for the ceremony. Over all It was a perfect location for a perfect day. Apart from the property itself being simply stunning, the decor , the comfort and elegance of every room has been so well thought out. Even down to the gym!! Our wedding day was a huge success with BOTH sides of the family (and thats a FIRST!). The venue was perfection , the food and decor for the day was exquisite. We couldn't have dreamt a better day. Thank you again Lesley... SUPERSTAR!!

Was better than we imagined

  • 5 of 5

Our mixed couples 35-somethings group was looking for a luxurious getaway. It met all our needs. Walking distance of bars and eats and a short drive to Vale do Lobo, an area we know well. Nearest beach is 5 mins drive away and secluded. Fabulous cinema. Outdoor bar with fridge and sounds on the raised terrace above the pool meant no-one had to move too far for refreshments. Would defo come back again.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 16 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bom Petisco at 500 Metres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Don Giovanni at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Praia do Trafal at 2.6 Kilometres Car: recommended


The nearest beach to the villa is the unspoiled coveted EU 'Blue Flag' Praia do Trafal which is a 4 minute drive away with pine forests bordering dunes leading to the golden gently sloping shore and is generally a well-kept secret from most tourists. Other long unbroken stretches of sandy coastline are Quinta do Lago (15 mins)and Praia da Rocha (40 mins). For the more adventurous the Algarve is scattered with secluded coves and lovely beaches just a short drive along the coast from the villa.


Faro Airport is just 20 minutes away (22km). Car hire is not essential but is recommended to enhance your holiday experience for easy access to all the attractions that the Algarve has to offer.


All distances are from the villa approx. Faro (Algarve capital) 22km airport, shopping centres, nature reserve.

Almancil 0.1km a la carte dining.

Vilamoura 6km exclusive shopping, bars, restaurants, marina, casino, Roman ruins. Loule 9km - traditional Algarve town, fiestas and events and admin centre.

Albufeira 17km old town, cheaper shopping, markets, bazaars.

Praia da Rocha 46km. English/Irish food and pubs, nightlife, discos etc. Sagres 86km old fort. Spain 86km.

Further Details:

There are 5 restaurants and 3 cafe/bars within walking distance of the villa; the nearest being Don Giovanni's excellent Italian 200m away. All culinary tastes are catered for either a short walk or drive away. Apolonia supermarket is just 1 km away that supplies virtually all English imported goods for those who like a 'home from home' environment.

The Algarve is one of the most popular tourist regions in Europe and as such has everything to cater for the holidaymaker abroad. Its beauty of being far less crowded than the Spanish Costas ensures a perfect holiday with over 80 coveted EU 'Blue Flag' status beaches. All major towns such as Faro, Almancil, Quarteira, Albufeira, Loule etc have all amenities such as banks, bureau-de-changes, supermarkets, shops and pharmacies. Zoomarine at Guia (the home of 'Piri-Piri' chicken) offers an interactive 'swim with dolphins' program. 'Slide & Splash' and 'Aquashow' (5 mins drive) are water/theme parks well worth a visit for those with children. Water sports are available at most major beaches. Other sports such as tennis, golf and horseriding are all readily available.

The exclusive resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo (homes of the rich and famous!) are the other two corners of the famous 'Golden Triangle'. Almancil therefore boasts of a location that is considered within the finest in the Algarve but at a price that is easier on the pocket.
