About Alan Chalmers

Our family of five have been coming to Vale do Lobo for many years. We initially rented before buying this property in 2006. Each of us find VDL an ideal place for relaxing and escaping from the vagaries of the UK weather. Three of us are keen golfers and the Algarve offers excellent golfing opportunities. One of the family is a golf club member at VDL. Two of the family cannot stand golf and in particular, dislike "golf chat" over dinner. The three golfers do not understand this. When the children were younger, we were regular users of the Tennis Academy coaching holidays. One of us (me), is now an obsessive road cyclist who enjoys the fantastic cycling opportunities that the Algarve offers.

The property is our holiday home as well as being available for rental. The accommodation is therefore as we like it to be when staying there ourselves.

Why Alan Chalmers chose Almancil

We like the peaceful location in Tennis Valley, having rented in that area of the resort for 15 years or so. The property's private rear aspect, and the views to the front over the pond with the relaxing sound of the fountain are particular attractions for us. The sun terraces offer different areas to relax and enjoy some personal peace and quiet. The busier areas of the resort such as the Praca and beach are readily accessible as are the golf courses. The Algarvian weather is of course a major attraction.

What makes this villa unique

Golf is a big benefit for some of the family. The golf haters enjoy the beach and its surroundings, or simply relaxing and reading. Early morning beach walks give particular pleasure. If cycling is your thing, lots of excellent road cycling as well as options for mountain biking. Guided tours are available locally as well as bike hire of whatever sort you fancy. The owner can advise/recommend cycling hire options if required along with TCX files covering a range of cycling options.

A beach walk to Vilamoura takes approximately 60 minutes. Sun loungers/shades are available for hire and life guards are on site. The adjacent Praca has a number of restaurants plus a swimming pool (entrance charge), crazy golf, kids club etc.
