About Claire Smith

I live in Surrey with my wife and three children (well, two of them are taller than me!). I run my own business along with my wife and brother. My hobbies include music and sport. Years ago, music was more than a hobby, as I played in a professional band for five or six years. I pretty much stick to golf these days, with the odd 'gig' now and again (very odd actually!) and as I obviously don't know much about football, I support Crystal Palace!

Claire Smith purchased this villa in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time. Very good value. The garden and pool was very nice and we liked your music selection! Hopefully we'll be back next year? MW, North Yorks.

We loved the location. The villa was well equipped and the second fridge was very useful. We'll definitely be back. PB, Gloucs.

The kids had a great time. They were never out of the pool! They also enjoyed the dvd's. We liked the garden very much. It is not overlooked. MW, Kettering.

Detached Villa With Private Pool And Garden, 5 Star Resort
average rating of 4.0 based on 3 reviews

Overall the villa was clean and tidy and the grandchildren loved the pool and inflatables provided.

  • 4 of 5

Vale Do Lobo was an impressively beautiful and very clean resort, if a little expensive.I wouldn't suggest staying anywhere near here if you are on a budget.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Very pleased you enjoyed the stay. Generally people know that Vale do Lobo is an expensive five star resort but our villa offers good value for money for those who want to enjoy the amenities without the high costs.

Great family holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped spacious villa in a lovely location. Ideal for sun worshippers and pool enthusiasts. Convenient for exploring all of the central Algarve. Property is in need of some refurbishment and two of the three air conditioning units were out of action during our week's stay in really hot weather! The villa has a number of games etc for children and a good supply of books and DVDs. No English language TV channels though. This is by no means a 5-star property but was ideal for our grandchildren and ticks most of the boxes for family accommodation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have checked the air conditioning units and found them all to be in working order. Other guests have had no problems, so not sure what the issue was. Maybe you had a problem with the remotes? Anyway, sorry for any inconvenience. With regard to the TV, we know of at least two English speaking channels on the MEO service but it changes from time to time. Glad you enjoyed the dvd's however. We do not advertise the villa as 'five star' but the resort of Vale do Lobo is officially five star. Most villas for rent tend to be much more expensive whereas we are offering value for money within a five star setting. Please feel free to check prices of other villas locally in order to have comfort around costs incurred.
