About Bridget Bolland

My wife and I bought Swan Lake 8 years ago as we were looking for a perfect holiday destination for our large and ever increasing family which had everything for all members of the family, including beaches, a marina and quality golf courses all within easy reach.

Bridget Bolland purchased this villa in 2005

Why Bridget Bolland chose Loule region

After searching Europe for an ideal family holiday home, the Algrave was chosen as the ideal destination, not only for its climate and wonderful people, but its 2 hour flight meant we could be pool side by lunch time!

It has excellent access from Faro airport being only a 20 minute drive.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa I think can be all things to all people, its quiet yet the lively side of life is only a stones throw away in Vilamoura.

Wonderful golf courses are on your door step,with the garden of our Villa flowing into the Fairway of the 17th of The Old Course.

We do love to enjoy evening entertainment with our family and friends and there are several top quality resturants to visit just minutes away.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Swan Lake is a beautiful villa, far bigger and more spacious than expected. Perfect for the mix of family we had aged 2 to 63. The gardens were beautiful and the whole place was immaculate. The pool was enjoyed by all ages. We would highly recommend Swan Lake.

Top spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two other families for a week and we certainly never felt on top of each other. There is space galore and the pictures don't really do it justice. The gardens are enormous and perfect for 7 kids to tear around. Because it's totally enclosed there is also no need to worry about the kids getting out either. Pool is gigantic and the heating was good enough for it to be used by us a lot even in November. A great place for several families to share.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for us, we had 3 families in our group from babies to Grand parents. Some people wanted to stay by the pool and some wanted to play golf so it was good for everyone.

The villa description is very accurate, it is right on the golf course with lovely views and close to some restaurants.

I will definitely be going again and can recommend this villa to anyone.
