Lovely villa with great facilities
About the Owner
Neville & Eve bought the land in 1983 and had the property built in 1985. Before retiring we refurbished the property completely in 2011. At the same time we built a new Tennis Court and extended the landscaping to include a 3 Hole/4 Tee Golf facility with greens.
These features have already proved very popular with guests who have booked again this year.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an amazing holiday and enjoyed spending our time at your villa. The only downside is that we are back home and not relaxing in Portugal.
Villa very well laid out and clean
Bedrooms spacious and plenty of wardrobe space
Nice dining area even though we didn’t use it
Lots of ground outside
Well maintained gardens
Cleaners great they cleaned the villa thoroughly and frequent enough, very polite and courteous
Plenty of Kitchen Utensils and sauces etc
Tennis court was in good condition and we enjoyed the matches we had when it wasn’t so hot
When we went to see Paulo and Carlos they were very friendly and helpful which put our mind at rest
Plenty of towels
Had the best 13 nights sleep beds were great
Built in BBQ great
Two fridges brilliant

Lovely villa with great facilities
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Violetta, it is a lovely, well maintained villa with some great facilities. In particular it had excellent outdoor space including a brilliant pool, good tennis court, lovely orchard and gardens, and a useful practice area for the keen golfers.
Very comfortable property large grounds, good facilities but a little dated
So with a large family pool, new tennis court and a practice area for golf plenty to keep everyone occupied. Grounds of the villa well kept and nice to wander around with a glass of wine and a cigar whilst others keep busy or chill! Peaceful location and car required to benefit all the surrounding areas and activities, Vilamoura only a £20 euro taxi ride away if like us we did not have a suitable designated driver that could not dine out without sampling the local cocktails!! So all in all a little dated but great location for peace and quiet with good facilities.
Great place for a family holiday
The villa facilities are first class and very well maintained. The gardens and planting are really impressive and a lovely surprise. The tennis court and pool are superb. In fact the quality of the tennis court is far better than those i've played on at many clubs in the uk.
The surrounding are is home to superb beaches, golf facilities and coastal walks. For the everyday things you are also a short drive from supermarkets and shopping areas.
The villa is close to all the above mentioned facilities but also remote enough for a private, peaceful holiday. Highly recommended.
Superb place for a family holiday
We loved this place. The villa has everything we required for a restful holiday. The pool and tennis court are superb and the villa has all you need for a comfortable stay. The gardens and planting are a very high standard and look even better in person than in the pictures.
In the nearby area you will find great beaches, golf facilities and superb coastal walks. Supermarkets are also only a short car ride away. The villa location is Superb because, even though you are near all the above mentioned facilities, the villa feels quite remote and peaceful which i loved. Highly recommended.
Would definitely recommend!
We had a fantastic family holiday at Villa Violetta. The gardens are so pretty & make for a peaceful & private holiday. A car is essential for getting out & about but there are lovely shops, restaurant & beaches only 10mins away. The pool & tennis court are brilliant & we had very happy kids & grandparents alike! There really was enough on site to keep all 3 generations happy & on a coupe of really hot days we didn't even leave the pool!
The villa itself is traditional in style, well maintained & clean. Really everything you could need is there. This was our first trip to Portugal & next time we return we will definitely stay here again...
'wouldn't expect much more from a 5* hotel resort'
What a delightful villa! As soon as we drove through the gates and down the drive, we knew that we had found a home from home. Golf course, swimming pool, tennis court, lovely villa, you wouldn't expect much more from a 5* hotel resort but best of all these facilities were ours to be enjoyed in total privacy.
Upon arrival, it was evident that the villa was immaculately clean and tidy. Outside the lawns had been mowed, the pool area was spotless, the tennis court surface had been washed and all of the patio furniture was clean. In fact both the villa and the grounds were beautifully maintained. The maid also popped around twice during our stay, to check whether we had any problems. Likewise, the management company also telephoned to check that we were happy. We couldn't ask for better service.
The villa itself was built and is both decorated and furnished in a charming, traditional Portuguese style. We have stayed at villas in Quinta that have been modern but lacking in character. This villa definitely has character, the bathrooms are modern and stylish, the kitchen is also modern, well-equipped and was spotlessly clean. The wifi is also fast and reliable and the children were happy with TV system!
The grounds are beautiful, so private and peaceful. So lovely to wake up to the sound of wood pigeons! My 11 year old son rolled out of bed and wandered straight out onto the golf course! A very happy boy! We could have spent all day playing tennis, golf and then cooling off in the pool.
The villa is set in its own grounds so great not to be surrounded by noisy holiday makers but there is a villa next door so you don't feel isolated.
Quinta shopping, Coco Lane driving range, beautiful beaches, water sports at the lake and a wide range of fine restaurants are a mere 5 minutes drive away.
You can see that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa and hope to return again in summer 2016. The villa has style and excellent facilities that would keep any family entertained for hours but also benefits from being situated on the edge of one of the finest resorts in Europe.
From the Owner
“The natural beauty of the location, which has changed very little, remains as peaceful and private as it was almost 30 years ago. Its proximity to all the surrounding facilities has always made it an attractive and ideal place to holiday.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
The villa is within the Ria Formosa Conservation area. We therefore benefit from a fabulous array of wildlife in the area including rare birds.
Faro airport is a 15 minute drive away. We can arrange for our representatives to meet and greet our guests at the airport for a small extra charge.
We are within 5 miles of over 50 high quality restaurants in and around Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Almancil. It is essential, however, to have the use of a car to benefit from all the facilities in the area.
