Why Lorraine Cowdery chose Faro

I bought my property in Vale do Lobo as I loved the area. I had holidayed there on several occasions and had been looking to buy a place in the sun and could not think of anywhere better. It is so convenient for the UK and Ireland. I also love the Portuguese people who seem genuinely pleased to welcome you...... unlike some other European countries.

I have now owned my property for 10 years and have not regretted buying in Vale do Lobo for one second. I just wish I had done it sooner. I spend 9 months of the year there and feel I am I credibly lucky to be in such a truly wonderful place.

Living so close to the ocean is great and if I want to immerse myself in the Portuguese lifestyle there are many lovely villages and towns less than half an hour's drive away.

What makes this villa unique

I love the sea and the coastline and feel spoiled that I can walk from my house down to the beach. It is such a beautiful walk with fabulous views. I also love the food and I feel I can completely relaxed there.

Another very good tennis venue is Maria's, a lovely friendly well run club that can be used on an ad hoc basis. www.tennisinportugal.com for more details.


The property is a 5 minute walk to Vale do Lobo beach. Maria's beach is 10 minutes walk away. There are numerous other beaches within a 5-10 minute drive, all providing loungers, shade and good standard restaurants. Julia's beach, a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive away has great water sports facilities.


The property is a 20-25 minute drive from Faro airport. If staying in Vale do Lobo for more than one week, car hire is recommended. However, there is a good selection of restaurants in the Praca, a short walk away. There is a bank and a supermarket on site. There is a car hire company on site. There is also a Medical Centre in the resort with medical and dental care.


Almancil, the closest town, is a 10 minute drive away. It has a wide array of supermarkets and small shops. Loule, a beautiful town, is 15 minutes drive away. Loule has a bustling market every Saturday.

Further Details:

There are numerous good quality restaurants within walking distance and many, many more a short drive away. There is a cash point in the Praca and a bank with a cash point in the Vale do Lobo Shopping Mall which are both within walking distance. Vale do Lobo has a brand new Pingo Doce supermarket with its own coffee shop. It is very reasonably priced. There is a Medical Centre and Dentist on site.
