About David Jacobs
I am a self made business man working in the media having bought and sold businesses. We have three older teenage children.
David Jacobs purchased this villa in 2005
Why David Jacobs chose Algarve
Having holidayed in the area since my children were small we kept coming back. The Golden triangle (as this Vale Do Lobo, Quinta Do Lago, Almancil is known) has always been our destination of choice so following the sale of my business the decision to buy purchase in the area was a given.
What makes this villa unique
We fell in love with the development of Fazenda Santiago due to its proximity to everything, yet just far enough away to offer calm and tranquillity. The property itself benefits from its own unique position set in grounds, not overlooked and ticked all our boxes. For Sport, Beach & food the area has to be the best and classiest in Europe.

We spent a week in this very stylish luxurious villa, a group of 7 friends on a summer break. The villa is very well looked after with beautiful clean rooms wth ensuite bathrooms and the gardens and pool area are also very well looked after. Some days we would cook in the kitchen which has everything you need and other days we would use the garden barbeque area. The beach is about 5 mins drive and if you haven't car the taxi services are very quick. Just outside the property are two tennis courts and a amply stocked gymnasium, we made full use of both. There are no shortage of good restaurants close by and villamoura is approx 15 mins drive. We had a great week and look forward to returning next year.
We have just spent a superb week in this stunning villa as a party of 5 adults and 4 teenagers. The feeling of space was great - we never felt on top of each other. The villa has every luxury needed to have a relaxing time. The basement room was ideal for the teenagers and the sound system around the pool area, in particular, made sunbathing and barbecuing a delight. Each room in the villa is tastefully and beautifully decorated. I especially loved the master bedroom with its fabulous views. We would have been happy not leaving the villa but when we did, the beach and shops were just a short drive away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this stunning villa.
Home from Home
This is now our second visit to this villa. We have been travelling to this part of portugal for the past 20 years and absolutely love it therefore it is great for us to finally have found a villa we can refer to as our other home. We have stayed everywhere plush villas in quinta which I have always found very tired inside and incredibly overpriced. Quinta Verde which I do like but the whole area I consider to be very overcrowded and Vale de Lobo itself. With 3 kids it was important for us to get the right mix and what I love about this villa is its location. I personally do not want to be hit by a golf ball every 5 minutes and as it is not on a golf course but in a quiet and small private residential area I love it. The other big plus for me is the land surrounding the villa which is way more than you would normally find and great for kids playing hide and seek or wanting to play a game of footie without disturbing your sunbathing. The general layout of the villa is good and with it's modern interior makes it an ideal holiday villa. The maintenance is top notch and absolutely any problem we found was dealt with immediately. The owner has always been great and responded to our numerous emails immediately.
