About Villa Vika Fraben (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.

Villa Vika Fraben (owner) purchased this villa in 2012

Why Villa Vika Fraben (owner) chose Quarteira

Villa Vika Fraben 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.

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."

Book Villa Victoria - you won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

When searching on the web for a suitable villa for a family of seven adults and two small children, it was our good fortune to discover Villa Victoria. The description on the website suggested that it was ideal for our special family holiday with the seven adults ranging in age from 66 to 32 and two children ages 3¾ and 1½. And so it proved to be during our one week stay in June 2017.

The villa is every bit as good and spacious as described on the website. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped with a housekeeping service mid-week. The garden is big and private and the swimming pool is excellent. Both the garden and the pool are very well maintained.

As for the owner, Vika, she could not be more obliging. Vika has perfect English so communicating with her was very easy. From the moment I contacted her, she could not have been more helpful or efficient. She responded promptly and comprehensively to every query that I had. Her helpfulness and efficiency continued throughout our stay and she was most polite and obliging at all times.

I can give no higher recommendation than to say the I would have no hesitation recommending Villa Victora and Vika to friends and family alike and I would certainly stay there again if going back to the Quarteira region.

We did hire a small car and I would recommend this as Quarteira and Vilamoura are beyond comfortable walking distance. That said, taxis are readily available and reasonable.

Book Villa Victoria – you won’t be disappointed.

Wow Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just come back from a wonderful holiday in Portugal staying in this beautiful villa. The owner, Vika, was just so helpful from start to finish communicating regularly through emails, with clear concise directions from the airport. We were a party of 7 of varying ages the oldest being 85 and the youngest 18, and Vika made the beds up to my specifications, i.e singles/doubles. The villa was large enough both inside and out for us all not to be in each others pockets. The pool was a good size and warm enough. There were enough sun loungers for everyone, and enough space, in the beautiful well maintained garden, to be separate from each other. The undercover outside seating and eating area, with a great BBQ was wonderful for eating and relaxing al fresco (I could imagine in the Summer it would be a lovely sitting here out of the direct sun). The villa was in a beautiful area we did hire 2 cars, but the beach, local Lidl and a great Wednesday Market were all a short walk away. One of our party went for a run most days to the beach and through some lovely woods - simply stunning location. It was our first time in Portugal and we will definately be returning. The weather was great, chilly in the evening to start with but towards the end of our 10 night stay warmed up considerably and we were able to eat and stay outside in the evening for longer. Highly recommended.

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.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

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

helpful and a always on hand for any problems would recommend this Villa for a family Holiday Thank you Vika for letting us stay at your lovely holiday home.

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.
