About Beth

We are a family of golfers who first discovered The Algarve on a golfing holiday. We spend several years coming over to Portugal and just fell in love with the area and people. It's been a wonderful location for our kids to grow up and develop, and to enjoy themselves on the golf courses, beaches and in the local nightspots. We finally decided to buy a property because we wanted to spend more time out here and a have a place of our own to give us as much space, privacy and freedom to do just as we wanted. It's been a perfect decision for us.

The most wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Villa Kurtz was just wonderful. The villa surpassed our expectations. We really appreciated all the quality furnishings and the most wonderful kitchen. The master suite bed was so comfortable and we went to sleep each night looking down over the Algarve and its twinkling lights.

The swimming pool was a great design and was put to good use during our week! In fact, the villa was the best that we have ever stayed at. The view was the most amazing part. I never grew tired of the view, day or night. You really felt like you were looking 'down over the world!'

Lucia and Beth were very helpful and accommodating from beginning to end.

We have fallen in love with Portugal and are looking forward to returning so we can discover much more of what it undoubtedly has to offer. A HUGE thankyou to Beth for sharing her very special property with us. I am dreaming of being back there already!

Owner's Response: First, I should say how grateful we are when guests are kind enough to leave a review. It's such a lovely feeling to know that our property has contributed to a happy holiday. I'm extremely grateful to Rebecca for her kindest words, they echo exactly what we felt when we found the plot, and we're so glad she and her family were happy with the villa we built. Thank you, Rebecca, we'd be delighted to welcome you back any time!

Fabulous villa with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Kurtz. Beth and Lucia were very helpful from our first enquiry, and were really keen to ensure our holiday was perfect. The villa itself is spacious and very well appointed, even better than the photos indicate. The location is peaceful with superb views of the coast. A car is essential, but Loule, with lots of lovely restaurants isn't too far away. The beaches are also a short drive away, but it is just as nice to stay and enjoy the lovely pool. We look forward to returning soon!

Lovely villa, great service.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in very good condition. It's a great place to go if you want to get away from it all and chill out. And an ideal place to base yourself if you want to visit many of the great golf courses in the Central Algarve. You don't have to stay in Vilamoura if you have a Satnav!!! The views are stunning. Lucia looked after us very well. She met us in Loule and showed us how to get to the villa. And was on hand to help with any requests we had whilst we were there. I would recommend this villa because it is as lovely as the pictures suggest and Lucia is very good at her job.

Owner's Response: We're so grateful to Greg for this lovely review. He's right, we're incredibly lucky to have Lucia look after our home in Portugal, she's a treasure. We always try to make things as well prepared as we can for our guests and love it when others appreciate, and enjoy the property and surroundings as much as ourselves. We found a gem when we spotted this location, Thank you, Greg!

What a fantastic location and 5 star accommodation. The whole process from making the original booking to the actual holiday itself was perfect. This was our first 'Villa' experience as a family, as we've always stayed at hotels previously and based on this experience we will be booking our next summer vacation in Villa. Lucia (local agent) was very helpful and incredibly efficient (thank you!). The views and the location are second to none and the layout of the bedrooms with all being en-suite worked really well. Loule is close by for everything you need and you're only 15 minutes (by car) from the coast (Villamoura) with some great attractions. Well worth visiting some of the the smaller villages (Alte - watch out for the donkey called Baltazar:-). All in all, a great family location with everything you need and views that exceed your expectations. No doubt we'll be back in the future...

Absolutely beautiful villa inside and out. The views are amazing and the villa gets the sun from first thing in the morning till last thing at night. The decor is lovely and the beds are comfy. It took a while to get used to the access road but even that was improved by the neighbours during our time there.

Would love to book again for next year. Many thanks.

Villa Kurtz, Loule

Amazing villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had our 4th holiday in Portugal this year and decided to try a new location and a new villa....we were not disappointed! Villa Kurtz was the perfect villa for us. The villa itself was just as lovely as the photos made it out to be. The location was the best of both worlds - private, secluded and slightly off the beaten track (!) but also within a few minutes drive of one of our favourite towns - Loule. The view from the terrace was amazing. One you would never tire of! Internally the villa was extremely comfortable with lovely furniture, etc. If I had to be really picky the only tiny downside for me was the fact that the pool couldn't be heated by a few degrees. Having said that, it certainly never stopped my children or husband using it....!!!! The only thing I will say is you definitely need a car due to the location. All in all we loved it so much we've booked to go again next year!

Owner's Response: One of the reasons we bought the plot all those years ago was because we thought the views were unbelievably breath-taking. Our villa was designed to be a comfy family home where we could enjoy the setting in a private location. We also wanted to be close to the golf course and sea. So we got the best of all worlds. Because we've enjoyed it so much we're absolutely thrilled that others have too. Thanks so much for your review, Jeanette. We're very grateful for all your comments, and really looking forward to welcoming you back next year!

With it's world famous beaches, this part of Portugal is always an ideal choice for family holidays and children of all ages. And for those who love golf, water sports, horse riding, hiking and or bird watching, they will also find this an excellent location. Basically it's great for any outdoor activities. There are also gym facilities for anyone wanting to workout, and then chill out in the spas located in the area.


The closest beach is 15/20 minutes drive away. The Golden Triangle Algarve beach stretches for miles! Soft sand backed by the famous Algarvian reddy cliffs lead down to the Atlantic Ocean. The sea is lovely and clean and perfect for water sports. The beach is gorgeous and has some great quality restaurants and cafes. This area is also home to the famous Rio Formosa nature reserve which lies in the migratory corridor, and is one of the last places in Europe for some birds to make nests.


The closest airport is Faro which is around 20 minutes drive from the property. This is a very popular holiday destination so is serviced by several airlines. Flights come in on a daily basis for most of the year. If driving, the motorway network is excellent and the exit junction for Loule leads into the town which is only minutes away from the villa. There are rail links in Almancil and Loule, and a Ferry port in Faro.


The house is situated on the edge of Loule, a traditional Portuguese town and close to Almancil, Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Villamoura. Faro is only 20 minutes away and for anyone wanting a day in Spain, Seville is 1.30 hours drive away. Following the coast North an excellent motorway system will take you to Portimao in less than 1 hour and Lisbon, capital city of Portugal in around 2 hours. And for shopping, nightclubs and more even beaches Albufeira is just 30 minutes drive away.

Further Details:

You'll find a large supermarket a few minutes drive from the house. It sells a great variety of goods including international foods. There are many restaurants and cafes in the area which cater for every taste and pocket. General shopping, post offices and banks are situated both in Loule and nearby Almancil. Medical facilities are also accessible in Loule. There are endless different leisure activities going on in the area from go-karting to cycling and paragliding.
