About Owner

Stan & Lyn. We have been visiting the Algarve since our boys were very young. We fell in love with the country from our first visit. Fifteen years or so later, things have just got even better. We come out to stay, to escape our busy lives, to exercise, work and play, in this beautiful peaceful place. (Stan is a professional musician/teacher, Lyn is a state registered nurse).

Owner purchased this villa in 2003

Why Owner chose Loule region

Bought the villa in this area, as without any doubt, it is in the best location. With golf courses surrounding, the area is always green, while much of Portugal is dry. Being close to the airport is perfect and being central allows us to reach Spain or the western Algarve in the minimum time. Sightseeing/activities connections in all directions, are great.

What makes this villa unique

Cycling walking swimming tennis, are popular activities everywhere, however here you just want to do all of them more. (Cycle hire is available and easy).

This is a fantastic 2 bed villa with fantastic views over the resort. Great value for money considering the location. 2 en suite bedrooms, stunning bath/shower rooms, great pool and sunbathing area with tables and chairs in shade. Parasols provided if needed. Upstairs to the living room with very comfortable settee, excellent TV package, WiFi, cd/radio plus board games and plenty of books to read.

Great kitchen with all utensils you require and more. Toilet/ washroom immediately on your left as you come in the front door- very convenient. Dining area between kitchen and balcony with serving hatch! Terrace with table and chairs with fantastic view over the resort. And another smaller terrace with stunning sea views up some stairs from the lounge. Lockable sliding doors with sliding mosquito net in lounge, bedrooms and kitchen areas.

Beach is a 10 minute walk as is the small mini market and restaurants. Excellent communication from Stan the owner, extremely thorough and professional.

I would recommend this villa, you will not get better value in this neck of the woods.

Great villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was a brilliant choice for our family - really well equipped, a great layout, very comfortable and spacious and the perfect spot to relax by the pool. On top of all that there's a beautiful beach ten minutes walk away, with lovely bars/restaurants, where we spent most of our evenings watching the sunset with cocktails in hand!

A perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

great villa, well equipped and spacious. as a family of 4 including 2 teenage girls this was the ideal location close to the beaches with great restaurants - izzy's, julia's and maria's rooftop for drinks, vale do lobo and quinta do lago just a few minutes drive away. the villa has everything you might need including 2 en-suite bathrooms / shower rooms, satellite tv and wi-fi and the pool is a proper size with good outdoor area for sun loungers and a first floor terrace for dining al fresco. the views from here are fantastic.

in all a perfect family holiday made easy by the owners professional and friendly approach - would go back tomorrow.

Great location, quite and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our Family have 2 adults and 3 kids , all comfortably accommodated at the Villa.

Kitchen was well equipped, wifi available and a large selection of English channels on the box if required. Within easy walking distance of the main beach in Dunas and several high quality restaurants. A short drive the Vale de lobo golf course where you can avail of family friendly golf rates. When not out and the about the kids spent hours in the ideally sized pool at the Villa. All in all a great location for young families or older citizens looking for some A & R. highly recommended.

Great location, Comfortable Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Great - we had a fabulous family holiday. More spacious than expected for a 2 bed villa and on edge of the resort, raised up with stunning views. For a holiday with 2 children this was great - the combination of own pool with communal larger pool meant for easy living. The beaches are great, water sports close by at Lakeside, and beach a short drive and live music every evening at the Praca in Val de Lobo. The owner could not be more helpful and very responsive. I would definitely recommend this others.

You can walk to communal facilities and the beach but with younger children and trips out requiring balls, inflatables, towels, snacks etc. we hopped in the car and drove. Plenty of parking everywhere so wasn't a problem

excellent choice in great location

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and well equipped villa in the heart of the Dunas Duradas estate near Quinta do Lago. Easy walk to the beach and a short drive to shops and restaurants. Very clean and well maintained. English TV and free WiFi. Steep steps, so not suitable for any guests with mobility problems. Perfect communication and instructions from the owners.

A really excellent choice for a 2 bedroom villa in the heart of the luxury part of the Algarve.

Owner's Response: Our special thanks to our well traveled guest for such a wonderful review. The fantastic views from the villa, are gained from being in an elevated position. We are at the top of a valley overlooking the village, towards the sea. Bearing that in mind, some stairs are inevitable. Our website information and brochures make that clear.
