Perfect place to recharge your batteries
About the Owner
We are a couple who run a business in the music retail industry and wanted a haven away from the cut and thrust of a very demanding job. As soon as we visited Vale Do Lobo we knew this was the perfect place for us ...
We were lucky enough to find a villa in a quiet, serene location in the gated community of Vale Das Flores overlooking the Ocean Golf Course, but yet still close enough to all the facilities and amenities that Vale Do Lobo and Almancil has to offer...
Guestbook comments from the owner
Really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa, interior superb – nothing left to chance with all needs catered for – right down to the iPod cradle & charger. Enjoyed the golf course view and Jacuzzi after the beach and the Master Bedroom is special. Would recommend this villa as an excellent family choice … The Graham Family, Helens Bay N Ireland
Great holiday, sunset Jacuzzi’s, wonderful long evenings spent eating and chatting, stunning golf course views continuously caused jaw-dropping moments. Thanks, we could not have had more facilities in a better place ... The McDonnel Family
This villa is the best that we have ever rented in over 30 years of renting in the Algarve, it was equipped and furnished to an extremely high standard. Most rental villas are lacking the nicer touches but not Casa de Luz it had everything we required and more. David Smith & family

Perfect place to recharge your batteries
My husband and I stayed at this villa with two friends and found it to be of the highest standard. This is a beautiful place to relax and recharge your batteries. We found all we needed at the local supermarket so there was no need for us to "eat out" every evening although as we had a car, we did have a look around the vicinity and found everything we wanted. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa and would suggest rounding the evening off with a glass of wine and a relax in the jacuzzi
Excellent Accomodation in Lovely Location
This is a lovely villa situated in the Val Do Lobo Area. The accomodation was everything we could have wished for and the whole area well kept, The owners were friendly and helpful when arranging our stay and suggested places of interest that we could visit. The area has a lot to offer with a variety of sports facilities and long walks by the sea. As we had a rental car and were able make the most of the area during the time we spent there visiting some of the small villages and just enjoying the scenery. We had a fabulous holiday and would recommend this villa to anybody looking for that perfect break.
A bit disappointing
I think some of the exterior pictures of the property may be a bit misleading as they are actually of the villa plus the villa next door as the property itself is semidetached. The interior design is very eclectic. On arrival the property was clean but a very strong smell of damp. I would not have liked to have been staying or using the basement bedroom/living area which is where this smell seemed to be strongest. The master bedroom is spacious but the additional bedrooms and beds were very small. The Villa is well enough located close to the vale do lobo circuit bus stop which is a great service and I would highly recommending purchasing the cards to use this bus service. . Unfortunately there was a problem with the jacuzzi while we were there and we were unable to use. Also as the locks were broken on two sets of the patio doors we had to use the exterior shutters to secure the villa. The vale do lobo area itself is beautiful we travelled with 2 small children plenty to do for everyone great for families and we will definitely return next year just not to this particular villa.
Superb holiday rental
The perfect holiday rental in the Vale Do Lobo area. I stayed here for a week from 24 September with my girlfriend and two friends. The villa is well positioned, only a short walk from the golf club and set in a gated zone with beautiful views across the golf course. The villa is very well maintained and equipped and is exactly as described. Christopher was very helpful in the run up to the visit providing all the information we needed on directions, the villa and local attractions. Vale Do Lobo offers a fantastic selection of sporting and leisure activities with golf, tennis, spa, beaches and some superb restaurants and beach bars. I'd hugely recommend the area and this villa to any group of 4-6 hoping for an enjoyable and relaxing break in the sun.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay in a clean and spacious villa in lovely surroundings. Easy access to all the facilities in Val do Lobos by car or courtesy bus. Great beach for strolling along. Restaurant at the golf course recommended.
Great Holiday / Superb Villa
We booked this villa at fairly short notice after researching properties on the Owners Direct website. It was everything we could have hoped for: peaceful. well appointed, comfortable and homely. The children (ages 12 and 16) loved the basement room which gave us time to enjoy a glass of wine whilst overlooking the 8th fairway of the Vale do Lobo's Ocean Course.
The owners were very helpful in setting up the week and the information required and requested was always timely and forthcoming. This gave us great confidence in making the rental and helped justify our choice. This was matched the quality of the property.
We had a fantastic time and a great holiday and would certainly recommend this property.
From the Owner
“It's a simple concept but from April to October in the Algarve almost every day is a "blue sky" day with wall to wall sunshine. Nothing lifts the spirit more than throwing back the curtains each day to be greeted by the sight of the Azure Algarvian sky and the warmth of the sun ... The Algarve is no more than a few hours flying distance from most European airports and the villa is merely 20-25 minutes from the local (Faro) airport.”
