About the Owner

Our family moved to the Algarve 15 years ago. Our kids go to a local British school. We are members of a local golf club and play a lot of golf. Algarve is a golf and beach paradise (that is the reason why we are here). We own two houses: one that we live in and one that we are renting. Because we live nearby we can always help the guests with shopping, babysitting, meeting at the airport or any other problems. We like our guests to feel as much at home as possible. We speak English, Portuguese and French.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved Villa Victoria so much that we have been twice and are set to visit again next year. The villa is spacious, clean and very well furnished, making an excellent setting for any family holiday.

The property is secure with lovely gardens so we could let our 2.5 year old run freely without the worry that he would escape onto the road. The swimming pool is nice and big, and the south facing position means that you can relax all day in the sunshine. The BBQ and outside eating area were perfect for evening meals or lazy lunches.

The facilities were so good we never found the need to venture too far outside the villa. However, the villa is well located with both the beach and the supermarket within walking distance or seconds away in the car. There are ample golf courses in the area.

The owners of the property are amazing. They are so friendly and they really want you have an enjoyable time in Portugal. Nothing is too much trouble."

A wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful villa with all the mod cons. Close enough to walk to the beach if you wanted to but we spent most days relaxing by the excellent pool. Very clean, and extremely spacious inside and out. The owner met us on arrival and was very nice. Thank you for the welcome package too.

We have just returned home after spending two lovely weeks at this excellent Villa, unfortunately we had 9 days of wet weather and spent a lot of time at the Villa but with the swimming pool heated to our requirements and the covered games area we made the best of it. Vika the owner is so very

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Victoria is a stunning villa, exceptionally clean, modern and well decorated throughout. Our party of 8 plus baby had ample room and every need was met. There is a Lidl supermarket nearby and beautiful beach a few minutes drive away. Vika the owner was fantastically helpful and always on hand. A special mention & thank you for Patricia (recommended by Vika) and her taxi team who were amazing - drove us about all week and made life so much easier! Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Fantastic villa and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

The villa was superb with spacious rooms and living areas, and a fantastic outside space and pool area. Comfortably housed 8 of us for the week, all were very happy. Ideally located and the owner, Vika, couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and our stay comfortable. Thank you

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa and were more than happy with the beautiful surroundings and standard of the villa. We travelled as a large family group and the Villa was more than spacious enough for all 6 adults and 4 children. It's location is close enough to the beach and a supermarket is close by.

The gardens were lovely and self contained making it safe for the younger children to run around in. The villa is decorated to a high standard and Vika the owner is more than accommodating and attentive to any needs. I would happily recommend this villa and would love to stay here again.

We are a family of 4 (my wife and i and our two girls 7 & 4)and have been coming to vale do lobo/quinta do lago for the last 5 years. This is far and away the best villa we have stayed in, the pictures don't do it justice. It is huge, easily accommodating ourselves and another family that we brought with us. The plot is secure with the garden running all the way around giving the kids plenty of space to run around! Inside and out there is nothing that we could fault.

Vika and her family are lovely. Our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 11pm but vika met us at the villa to show us around and her daughter even made some pancakes for our girls.

The supermarkets, golf courses and restaurants at the praca (vale do lobo) are all within a 5 min drive. The Aquashow water park is also just around the corner!

All in all we had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be staying here again!!

From the Owner

Villa Victoria is a brand new villa built in 2012. It was built for our family's use. We love the area because it is set in a unique location, close to the beaches and golf courses. The location is very peaceful yet some of Algarve's liveliest places are within a 10 minute drive.
