About the Owner

My husband and I with our three children have been going to Vale do Lobo/Dunas area for the last 15 years. I run a voluntary charity for The Royal Marsden Hospital raising money for much needed research and helping to fund two new units. My husband works freelance, so when the opportunity came to buy our own apartment we were thrilled as we love the area so much, and have enjoyed visiting at different times of the year, taking advantage of the various seasons.

We have enjoyed so many special times as a couple or as a family there. The reasons being, the apartment is set in stunning grounds, and offers on site amenities; a fantastic swimming pool and splash pool for small children, 2 flood lit tennis courts, bar and restaurant..

We recommend that you hire a car to make the most of the fantastic facilities in the area. If you are a bit unsure of driving from the airport we can arrange a personal meet and greet service from/to the airport in a registered private car and also supply baby/car chairs for the children. Then you can have your hire car delivered to the villa at your convenience.
