About the Owner

Joanna and Peter live in Putney, South West London and have three children. The children have all enjoyed their holidays in Portugal when younger and they now take groups of their own friends out as a welcome break from their working lives.

When we are on holiday we like to engage in lots of activity such as playing tennis, walking, cycling and swimming and to combine this with plenty of relaxation, reading and listening to music in comfortable surroundings.

We enjoy good food and wine and love gathering family and friends together and dining alfresco.

We spend about two and a half months a year in Portugal and have made a number of very close friends there.

The villa is fantastic, even better in real life - we all loved it!

Iain Cochrane April 2011



Everything was brilliant.The maids were great and the villa immaculate when we arrived. The villa has a lovely feel to it.

Melanie Marshall July 2011



The roof terrace is quite fabulous!

Elizabeth Aben June 2012



We had an absolutely fabulous week in your gorgeous villa. Our family couldn't get over what an amazing place you have! The games room proved a terrific hit. We will definitely return.

Carol Browning June 2012



We have had a wonderful week in your beautiful villa, I really cannot praise it enough. It is so civilised and spacious and well equipped with palatial bedrooms and bathrooms.

Tory McKenna August 2012



We are knocked out by this beautiful villa. It's perfect!

Anthony Grant August 2012



It's been an absolutely perfect week for us, the children in particular. The pictures on the www do not do justice, what a sensational place!

Thomas Overdale September 2012



'We had a wonderful week in your beautiful villa, all very sad to leave ... Everything was perfect'

Hall family May 2014



'The villa was absolutely superb and ticked every box and the holiday was a great success...we were sad to leave'

Emma Clarke August 2014



"The villa is a superb set up for a family holiday and with the location,

the pool and games room[hardly used] there is everything anybody would want.

It also has the advantage of feeling as a home rather than purely a rental property."

Newman family May/June 2015

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a quiet area. We are a group of 8 ladies who went to Vale do Lobo to play tennis and relax.. The relaxation was made very easy as the villa has everything you could wish for. It's very clean and well maintained and looks in real life just like it does in the pictures! We loved the massive games room where we had several roommates challenges after dinner at table tennis, pool and table football!! The layout of the bedrooms was fine for us as the beds could all be separated, apart from the master, which was big enough to lose yourself in!! The walk to the tennis centre was about 20 minutes and we classed that as our warm-up!

There are several restaurants on the Praca, which is within easy walking distance. We also visited Julia's, which was wonderful - food was amazing and service very good - and Maria's, which has a very good reputation, but we think it needs to work on its service.

The maid service was appreciated - they visited 3 times during our short stay - with ladies who were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. We also had to call the property managers for a very minor problem (one of the plugs got stuck in the sink) and they came out immediately to sort it out.

We are looking forward to being able to stay at this beautiful villa again next year.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a 10 day stay at this beautiful villa.

We were two families and with 4 spacious bedrooms (two on each floor) we all had our own space and the games room kept all ages entertained.

The villa is very private with a lovely pool and stunning views from the roof terrace.

A car is necessary for 'the supermarket run' but we walked approx. 10 mins to the beach and Maria's restaurant down an unmade path and further along the beach are two further restaurants Julia's and Izzy's. A lovely walk across the golf course took us to 'The Praca' approx. 20 mins where there is a selection of restaurants and bars to suit everyone.

We took a Taxi one night into Villamoura which costs 15-20 Euro (for an 8 seater) each way and we found the best price by booking it through Villas and vacation who were helpful at all times.

The owners of the Villa were very informative before we left with lots of local info, maps etc and there is a very useful handbook at the villa.

Vale de Lobo is just stunning but always to good to review the area before you go so as not to miss anything such as local markets etc..

Highly recommend.

Excellent villa - 5 out of 5

  • 5 of 5

This property is even better in reality than the photos and description imply.

We had a mixed group of teenagers with us and the house has plenty of communal areas as well as more private places to go if they (or their parent) need some space - my favourite was the roof terrace.

The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived and well maintained by cleaning and pool staff during our stay.

In terms of things to do - the bars and clubs at the nearby Praca kept the teenagers happy during the nights, but the beach is also very close if you have younger children, and the golf and tennis facilities are all easily reached.

We liked Maria's restaurant on the beach - good food and stunning views, especially if you're there for dinner to watch the sunset. Be sure to book beforehand, as we saw several people turned away on the day.

Spikes bar and restaurant is also worth a trip for cocktails and has nice views of the golf course and gardens. It also has a brasserie which is very child friendly, not only for the food, but also for play areas (ie the putting green which is right next to the tables).

We had a great stay, and would happily recommend it.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday with our daughter son and there familys 3 grandchildren all under 5 The villa was better than described. The layout was great very roomy and had everything we wanted plus more. The grandchildren loved the pool and spent many hours in there each day. The villa was well maintained both inside and out. The owners were lovely nothing was to much trouble providing a good customer service. We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return for another unforgettable holiday soon. We holiday in the algarve every year and we eat at Maria's Casa da Quinta and Four Seasons which are all excellent.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent a week in this Villa on a family holiday I would definitely recommend it.

The whole Villa is just beautiful with plenty of space for everyone and a very pretty garden plot with plenty of shade areas. All the bathrooms with the bedrooms are so spacious and finished to a very high standard. I loved the newly refurbished kitchen the little decorative tiles and the granite work top are very smart. It was great to have an extra fridge in the utility room which was well stocked with beers for the boys ! Also plenty crockery etc. The Villa was lovely and clean with maid service during the week.

The pool is heated which is perfect for the youngsters, also at night it all lights up. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and the beach nearby is beautiful. We had a wonderful week and the owners are more than helpful with anything required.

Location

From the Owner

The climate in this part of the Algarve is absolutely fantastic. There are so many clear sunny days and the quality of light and air is uplifting especially after a few grey months in London. In the height of the summer when it can be very hot there is usually a breeze so it is not too over powering and in the winter we often sit outside in t shirts eating lunch and have even swum in November. We love entertaining family and friends and the villa is a perfect place to do this. There are a great many restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and pockets and we particularly enjoy sitting at the beach restaurants eating fresh fish and drinking local wine. The area feels safe and people are polite and courteous. Children are welcome everywhere which is a bonus for family holidays.

Facilities

From the Owner

There are activities for all age groups and everyone can be as busy or as chilled out as they want. Being able to walk to the beach, the tennis club and the Praca makes a big difference so everyone can be independent without needing to get in a car all the time. Individual guests can have their own privacy by using the various terraces to read, write, paint or sunbathe without being disturbed. Being in a cul de sac and slightly outside the main hub makes it very peaceful and quiet. If the weather is dull the games room with table tennis, snooker etc is very useful and this is a good area for younger members of the party to have some autonomy. If the weather is very hot the house is well protected and cool. There is a lot of space in the house so it never feels over crowded.
