About Jane & Keith Williams

My husband Keith and myself live in Dartmouth, Devon and we share our time between Dartmouth, North Bovey on Dartmoor where we own an idyllic chocolate box cottage, Portugal and various long haul destinations. We have 4 sons and 7 grandchildren and love our holidays in the Algarve with the family

Jane & Keith Williams purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jane & Keith Williams chose Almancil area

We stayed with some dear friends in their villa in Varandas do Lago and fell in love with the area. It has fabulous beaches, a wealth of restaurants from economy through to Michelin standard and is right in the middle of a golfing paradise

What makes this villa unique

The nearest beach is a 5 minute drive and all of the beaches are perfect for children. They stretch for miles. There are an abundance of golf courses and tennis courts whatever your standard. As previously mentioned there are a massive array of restaurants for fine dining through to family economy.

Superb !!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent

villa well apppointed with tasteful furnishings yet a homely ambience. It is very spacious and the basement room is a bonus for fun family time. Although we stayed in April, the weather was great and despite the pool being unheated we swam most days including early mornings. Relaxing outdoors with the BBQ , pool and patio area was perfect. Amazing restaurants set on the beach with views to die for are a short ride away - we had great food at Maria's, Julia's, Eduardos and Caso de Campo. An upmarket shopping complex is also a short drive away and I can recommend the champagne afternoon tea at the Conrad Hotel . All in all the villa is of high quality in a lovely setting.

Sensational villa. Very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Well appointed villa on a quite estate, within walking distance of the beach. Also walkable are a few restaurants, but ideally a car is needed to get around.

The pool area is a real sun trap (even in April) and the BBQ experience is enhanced by outside heaters.

The basement games room was a real hit with the family, with the large screen TV having both Sky and BT Sports.

Furnishing were lovely and the place felt like a home from home.

Transacting with the owners was very straightforward and we had a great holiday.

Very highly recommended.

Stunning Villa, Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My young family spent ten days out here, and wish it had been longer! I was slightly nervous about how much work it would be taking my lot out there, but Jane (the owner) has made is all so easy out there. The villa was immaculate, the area so wonderful (tonnes of options for both day and evenings) and we can't wait to come back! Highly recommended!!

Exceptional villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

From the initial communication with the owners through to our departure, this was a wonderful experience. The villa is immaculate and very well equipped. The location is wonderful with the beach, Quinta Do Lago and Vale Do Lobo extremely close by with a great selection of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. The Villa is very family friendly with loads to do. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday and we will certainly be booking again.

Thoroughly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic holiday with the family. The villa is in a great location, near the beach and a wealth of superb restaurants. Very spacious inside, with a lovely private swimming pool. We've already spoken to Jane (the owner, really helpful and friendly) about booking again this year.

Great Villa and Service!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 10 night stay in this Villa near Vale do Lobo. It was immaculate upon arrival and was a perfect fit for the family - The games room was a particular hit, as was the pool which was a great sun trap for the whole day. Easy location to and from the airport and plenty of great restaurants to choose from (I would recommend Casa de Campo which was only a 5 minute drive away and set in a beautiful courtyard!) Jane was extremely helpful and responsive throughout our stay and was able to provide a full list of places to visit / eat during our time there. I would be happy to recommend this to family and friends.
