About Betina Goodall

We are a family of 5 - who have always loved coming to Vale do Lobo. For many years we rented, but a few years ago we bought our own. We hope when you visit you will find it as much as a family home as we do.

Betina Goodall purchased this villa in 2008

Why Betina Goodall chose Faro

We love the fact our villa is a quiet street in Vale do Lobo. Some of the properties closer to the square can be noisy during the hight of summer. We also love to have the full use of all of Vale do Lobo's many excellent facilities, but at the same time have beautiful 380 degrees views over green tree tops from our roof terrace.

What makes this villa unique

You can use the excellent Vale do Lobo bus/taxi service as much as you like if you buy a pass (weekly Euro25 per guest). You simply call them when you need to be picked up and they will take you anywhere you want to go within Vale do Lobo.

if you are a golfer - speak to us, we will be able to book your rounds of golf as our guests, and therefore at discounted price.

If you want to play tennis - Vale do Lobo has fantastic facilities, including their award winning academy for all ages - weekly courses.

The Vale do Lobo website will show you all the facilities, including the beautiful SPA and Gym, restaurants, child care etc www.valedolobo.com


Special interest holidays:

One of the largest tennis facilities in Portugal, it attracts national and international tennis fixtures, including an annual ATP Seniors Tour competition, the Vale do Lobo Grand Champions Caixa Geral de Depósitos, and the Portuguese Ladies´ Open. A gym, swimming pool, pro shop and two restaurants overlooking the courts complete the facilities.


3 miles of golden sand. 10 min walk from the villa. Vale do Lobo also offers a great choice of restaurants, award winning SPA and good night club/bar


The nearest airport is faro - 30 min drive. Taxi's are easy to book, and Vale to Lobo offers a very good car service, so if you want to stay in the area you wont necessarily need a car, but for full flexibility we suggest you rent a car from the airport.


10 min walk to the beach, 15 min drive to a town with a daily fish and vegetable market.

Lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We are back from a lovely relaxing stay and didn't want to come home.

The villa inside is so much bigger than you expect and very comfortable. The outside space is slightly smaller than expected but beautifully kept and sufficient for the three of us.

There is everything you need from all kitchen items to towels. A local mini market is about a 10 minute walk, well priced and well stocked. There are also a Lidl and Aldi a short drive away as well as another large supermarket but we found it overpriced. The praca is about a 40 minute slow walk (it was warm!) via the main roads as we didnt find a short cut. It was lovely going for drinks or dinner and enjoying the music and relaxing. The resort bus seemed very popular and a great idea but my husband I like to get a walk in so preferred to walk.

We would highly recommend the villa

Wonderful Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is always a little worrying when booking a villa on the internet.... However, I was extremely happy with my choice. My wife and I, along with 4 daughters 18,17,15 and 8 stayed here recently and were very pleased with this villa - size, cleanliness, furniture, facilities, location, well maintained/decorated, quietness from street noise - all boxes ticked! During our 9 night stay we made use of all the lovely outside space (pool/patio to the front of the house, BBQ terrace to the rear and also the roof top terrace). I personally enjoyed just sitting on the balcony outside the Master bedroom, over looking the pool sipping G&Ts and star gazing. The villa is on a gated road so no public traffic cars or people passing by which adds to the privacy and quietness which I put very high on my wish list. I would say because of this luxury that a car is very useful. Even though not that far from the beach 20/25 min walk (which my wife and I did a couple of times early morning to stretch legs and purchase a coffee and cake!!), it is hot and teenagers moan whenever they can! Anyway, a car gives you a chance to explore the surroundings. The older girls did manage to walk down to the bars in the evening without complaint! We ate out a few times but also had some lovely BBQs in the villa. Beds were very comfy and I have to say that for me I always need air con and happily it all worked fine around the villa - so great nights sleep. Overall, wonderful villa - would love to stay here again. I felt like Betina and her family really did want us to enjoy our stay - a few nice touches - books, dvds, board games and playing cards and a little book which they have all added their comments on the restaurants they have been to. Thank you Betina and Family!!!

Amazing! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were just blown away by this villa, it was just beautiful and so tastefully decorated. So comfortable(even the beds!), we were actually quiet happy to lounge by the pool and not leave the villa. It was so spacious, and had everything we needed. The kids (12, 3 and 16 months) had an absolute ball. We could honestly live there forever. We used the circuit bus which was great. We walked some mornings up to the praca and got the circuit bus back when it was getting very hot. We didn't need to use the air conditioning as whatever way it was designed it was quiet cool on the inside which is great when you have 2 smallies. Also we were supplied with a proper wooden cot as opposed to a travel cot. There is nothing we could fault, the pictures on the website don't do it justice. We really had one of the best holidays ever and we can't wait to go back! Betina is so polite and easy to deal with.

Ideal Villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this lovely villa in Val do Lobo as 2 families with 2 children. The Villa is located in a beautifully quiet area of Val do Lobo yet near all the attractions of golf and a quick hop to the supermarket.

The house is beautiful. Large main living & dining area. Large well equipped kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine and all cooking equipment) with outside dining area overlooking fields. Each bedroom has its own loo and shower. There is even a roof terrace for evening drinks or sunbathing with a panoramic view of the Area. Just perfect. The swimming pool is lovely and perfect for cooling off and our 2 kids spent hours in there every day. The beds are really comfortable and each room has brilliant storage and air conditioning / heating and blackout shutters if the sun wakes you early ! The family have left a book with all their recommended restaurants which is really helpful. I cannot recommend this villa enough. We will definitely book again. Just perfect.

Outstanding accommodation.

Clean, modern, spacious accommodation in a quiet location (at the end of the road).

Several areas to relax, both shaded and unshaded. They capture where the sun is throughout the day.

Convenient location within Val de Lobo.

Good for all different age groups

Perfect family villa in Vale do Lobo

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from another great holiday at Casa dos Pinheiros. We have holidayed in Vale do Lobo for a number of years and this is by far our favourite place to stay. The villa is very comfortable, tastefully furnished and very well equipped. As has been mentioned before the photos do not do it justice. Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac within the Vale do Lobo complex, the villa is deceptively spacious with numerous different outside areas for relaxing. You can tell this is a much loved family holiday home with pool toys, board games, a selection of books and a personal guide to their favourite restaurants being just a few of the personal touches we found. The owner is always very helpful and easy to deal with and we look forward to returning very soon.
