About James Benson

I live in England with my wife and 2 children. My wife and I both work, but spend time at the villa in Vale do Lobo where we can relax and enjoy the golf and tennis with friends and family.

James Benson purchased this villa in 1971

Why James Benson chose Parish of Almancil

The villa was built by my parents in 1971 and has been updated over the years with new kitchen, bathrooms and air conditioning and just recently has been upgraded and has new furniture both inside and outside together with new terrace and BBQ.

I have therefore grown up with the delights of a large garden and pool in one of the quietest areas of the resort and have enjoyed watching my children learn to swim and go on to enjoy the fabulous beaches,sporting facilities and night life of Vale de Lobo!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is only c20 minutes from Faro airport and although the villa is in a quiet area of the resort it 10-15 minutes walk to the beaches and restaurants and bars at the Praca. The golf club is 5 minutes walk and the nearest shops are under 1km.

The real delight of the property is it sits in its own garden with a large pool giving the option of a peaceful holiday but with the options of more activity close by when required. It is also ideal outside of the summer months for those who enjoy the excellent weather and the golf which is available at Vale do Lobo and at a number of other courses nearby.

Lovely, well appointed villa

  • 4 of 5

A great location for golfers, beach, walking, cycling (rent bikes from the Vale do Lobo centre). Had a great time celebrating a 70th birthday with friends and family. Super, functional, villa, works well for 3 couples. Visiting in March, we appreciated the heating, but can see everything well set up for hot days. Great neighbourhood, and agents very responsive.

Beautiful Villa in tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and 1 child) stayed in the Villa at the end of August and had a wonderful relaxing week. The location is great. Vale de Lobo is a quiet golf resort with fantastic restaurants and a beautiful quiet beach. The villa is a short walk (15minutes) from the beach and the supermarket (we had a rental car for comfort). The Villa has two beautiful terraces and we alternated between them depending on where the sun was. The garden was large and surrounds the whole house and is very well maintained. We especially loved the pool and spend most of our time lying under the parasol by the pool. The villa has everything one needs and there wasn't anything we were missing. The service from KG villas was great and they were very friendly. The property was very clean and the maid came during the week to clean as well as the gardener to cut the grass (which grows fast) and the pool maintenance. We had a fantastic time in the villa and will definitely be back.

Fabulous villa, with everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a week, in a party of 4 adults and two children. We fell in love with the villa immediately - so clean and well equipped but it also feels like home. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed many a BBQ - (top tip - buy the charcoal in the green bag from Pingo Doce, its the best one!). We also ventured down to the Praca and had a few lovely meals - we went with Amore, the other Italian and the Bar, as best food for the nippers, but Sandbanks looked amazing for seafood lovers. Nearby Pingo supermarket has a fantastic selection of meat and fish, and we enjoyed knocking up a few fancy lunches of our own and enjoying them on the terrace area with a drop of Vinho Verde. The villa has everything you could possibly think of needing. You cant really appreciated the space from the photos, but the grounds are big, and immaculate.We even found a stash of sun hats when hubby's head got sunburned! Not a single complaint and we would all love to return. Its been a super start to our summer. Thanks James!

Excellent villa, facilities and location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Vale do Lobo, thank you so much. Your house is lovely, so clean and so well equipped we wanted for nothing.

The weather was really very good, a couple of thunderstorms and related downpours, but the sun returned almost immediately so no inconvenience at all.

We really enjoyed the golf, the courses are brilliant although personally I preferred the Ocean course.Our golf was OK, but the first round we finished in the half light!

We ate well with two wonderful lunch sessions at BJ's and Izzy's and two good dinners at Julia's and Maria's. The latter was exceptional with a wonderful view of sunset from the roof bar before we ate, enhanced by two exceptionally pretty young girls at the next table who charmed three old men into total adoration!

KG are excellent responding to problems within minutes. Firstly they forgot to give us the golf cupboard key and then we locked ourselves out the day the cleaner came. Both solved almost immediately even on a Sunday.

You really do have a holiday gem here worth recommending to friends etcand we may well be back if we can! Thank you so much.

Fantastic location for a Golfing holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week with a small group of friends to play the golf courses in the area, which are all first class! The location of the villa had great access to everything we needed. The villa was stunning and handover & communication with the villa owner was first class. I would highly recommend this villa not only of golf, but also for a family holiday as its close to beaches shops and restaurants. It is also nice enough to enjoy time just relaxing in the villa.
