About the Owner

We have lived here for the last eight years. With two young children who have grown into teenagers, we can say that there is something for everyone in this area. We didn't realise how good the location actually was when we bought the villa.

Spacious family villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay in this spacious well equipped villa within walking distance of quiet beach. Good size swimming pool and other facilities such as outside table tennis table. Wonderful breakfasts on the roof terrace which has a sea view. We have holidayed in this area several times and would recommend this villa highly. Good communication with owner.

Great family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This Villa in Vale do Garrao was great for my husband and I and our 3 young boys. The kitchen is well equipped for my "foodie" husband, with a very gracious and non-intrusive maid service. The bedrooms are spacious and the roof terrace is a lovely spot to catch the sunrise. The pool with slide is an obvious winner with the kids. We would definitely return.

From the Owner

We originally wanted to buy a villa in Vale do Lobo and we paid a deposit on a villa in the tennis valley. Subsequently. an estate agent friend of ours mentioned that we had a villa that he thought we should view before we settled for the villa in Vale do Lobo. When we looked at this we just looked at each other because we both knew that this was the one for us. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Activity and Interests


8 minute walk from the beaches.

Beautiful Vale do Garrao beach stretches between Quinta do Lago beach and Vale do Lobo beach. There are many beach restaurants including the popular Izzy's and Julias which often have live entertainment.


20 minute drive from the Faro airport. Car hire is recommended but not essential. Alternatively bicycle hire is available and becoming increasingly popular. Taxis are available and reasonably priced. You will never have to wait too long. I can recommend some taxi numbers.


We are 8 min drive from Almancil town with its many supermarkets, Apolonia, Pingu Doce, Aldi. Faro town is 20 mins drive away and well worth a visit, both the old town and the modern Forum shopping centre. In the opp direction is Algarve shopping in Guia. It is just 25 min drive from the villa. Villamoura is 20 min drive and is a beautiful harbour and very popular. Aqua Show is 12 min drive and a big attraction for the kids. Zoomarine is also 25 min drive with dolphin and parrot shows.

Further Details:

The closest shop is the minimarket in Dunas Douradas beach club. There is an Alisuper at the entrance to Vale do Lobo. The are over 150 restaurants in the Almancil area some with live entertainment during the summer. Most restaurants will do take away if you ask for it.

From the Owner

You will enjoy particularly the privacy of this property which is not overlooked on any side. The location is also worth mentioning because lying in the Golden Triangle, it is convenient to Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Almancil. The Vale do Garrao manicured gardens are right behind the villa. The villa has been entirely updated in the last three years so there is no tired decor like so many of the other villas. The last thing that the kids will love is that there is a slide into the large private pool.
