About John Cushing

My name is John Cushing and I live in England with my partner and 3 children. We were fortunate to live at the Villa for a couple of years before returning for my eldest daughter to commence her GCSE's. The two years in Portugal gave my children a great outlook on life learning the language and culture their overall education has benefited as a result.

John Cushing purchased this villa in 2006

Why John Cushing chose Almancil

My great friend Julio and his team completed the build of our beautiful Villa in 2006. Situated in a beautiful Portuguese Village called Vale de Eguas just a couple of minutes from Almancil. The Villa is within the Golden Triangle. The Villa is totally private with large gardens to enjoy all the outdoor activities. A 10 minute drive will take you to the beautiful Algarve Beaches with its superb restaurants & bars. Vilamoura is only a 15 minute drive away. The Villa is very safe for young children with fencing all around the property and Electric Gates at the front. The Villa is South Facing so for those who adore the sun this is the place to be. For those who like a bit of shade we have allowed for this when we built the Villa.

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is built in a fabulous location only 15 minutes from Faro Airport. Situated in a quite Portuguese Village the Villa is just 5 minutes walk from two superb Portuguese Restaurants. Apolonia Supermarket is just a three minute drive and has a fresh fish and meat counter. This Supermarket also bakes the best bread including the most wonderful Baguettes. Apolonia Supermarket is very similar to Waitrose in the UK. Children will love the Water Park which is only a 7 minute car ride away. This Water Park has expanded just recently and is simply awesome.........until your kids persuade you to to go down the black tunnel !!!! There is also a fun Go Karting facility just 5 minutes from the Villa. There are two tracks one for the little ones the other a full blown professional track for older children and adults. There are fabulous golf courses within a 10 minute drive at Vale do Lobo and Quinta de Lago. The Villa has numerous outdoor facilities such as a trampoline (fully secured) table tennis outdoor pool table and football table and even football goals in the gardens and small ones for fun in the pool. There is also a swing for minors.

Lovely Villa, Great Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
My family & friends have just returned from a wonderful week’s holiday at Quinta De Eguas. The villa had everything for both children and adults. The gardens are wonderful and the whole property very secure and relaxing. The children spent almost the entire day by the pool enjoying all the activities this villa provides. Conveniently located, it was a quick fifteen minutes by car from the airport and a similar distance away from the beach. We enjoyed the huge amount of space which this villa has, bearing in mind there were ten of us. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well designed allowing enough space to be independent.

Relaxing on the loungers was wonderful and we were so grateful to have beach towels supplied. The BBQ was easy to use and made cooking fun and simple. The kitchen has everything from a fridge/freezer supplying endless amounts of ice to a juice maker and a fabulous coffee machine….what a treat!!! Both husbands made use of the Wi Fi.

There is a SKY box to enable the SKY Channels so I will remember to bring my SKY Card next time.

The owner was extremely helpful providing us with information on restaurants, bars and general entertainment.

We thoroughly recommend this villa and are looking forward to a return visit next year.

Beautiful and spacious villa

  • 5 out of 5
Just had a lovely last minute holiday in this beautiful villa. All the rooms are very spacious, especially the grand entrance hall with its sweeping staircases. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds with lots of wardrobe space.
The grounds are wonderful with lots of grass for the children to run around on; the trampoline, swing, football and table tennis tables were a bonus. A treat for us adults was the juicer and the fantastic coffee machine.
The large patio area was delightful with plenty of loungers and a covered dining area for lunch sheltered from the sun. At night the pool looked fantastic lit up, even in late October it was warm enough to eat outside in the evenings.
I really can't fault this villa, a lovely place to relax. And the joy is that it's a very short drive to the beaches and variety of restaurants. The charming owner was very helpful with all my questions, we're already planning our return!

Outstanding family destination

  • 5 out of 5
We have regularly stayed in the Almancil area, its usually a little easier to find something here as opposed to Valle du Lobo. Last year we came across this villa and have been 2 years in a row now. Great villa, set back off the quiet road. Facilities are good, there's a big garden and pool and the whole place is maintained to a high standard. The villa owner is a friendly chap too!

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
What a great place! We stayed here with family including my 1 yr old son for a week in September and had a wonderful time. The villa is fantastic, it is immaculate and finished to an exceptional standard throughout and is bright and airy with LOADS of space so you don't ever feel like you're living on top of one another. The pool is a good size and if you have small children the fence round it is invaluable. The outside area is great with loads of comfy seats & loungers, a great dining space & BBQ and loads of things to do like pool, table tennis and a trampoline! The location is so handy for the airport and for exploring the coastline and we got some great tips on places to eat from the owner too which was great. John was really helpful and able to tell us more about the area and places to go and arranged for a lovely welcome pack to be there on our arrival. Overall we had an excellent holiday and would thoroughly recommend the villa.

Absolutely 1st Class!

  • 5 out of 5
Just spent two weeks at this magnificent Villa (June 2010) and I cannot speak highly enough of the standards / quality of furniture / amenities / Location / Landscape - everything was well above our expectations and we were all very sorry to have to leave after a fantastic Holiday..

I can Highly Recommend this Villa to All Families - it is Very Kid Friendly and our whole party (10 people - 4 kids & 6 adults) Loved everything about it.

The Pool & surrounding Area is Top Class - also their is a table tennis set (Brand new) on the patio are (which is very large and has 3 dining areas!) - it was a joy to spend days in the pool and evenings lounging in the beautiful surroundings whilst enjoying a drink (or two!!)..

The photos on this web site might be a little old as the Gardens are all now flush with Beautiful bright flowers / tress etc - which give a fabulous finish to the whole plot.

The inside of the house feels like Brand New - Without the 'dont touch anything feeling' - its is very welcoming and cosy to both young and not so young.. All of the Bedrooms were plentiful in size and furnished to a good level.

On arrival their was a surprise welcoming pack of the basic food necessities as well as some very welcomed beer & wine!

Their is a large folder with a huge amount of local amenities / directories including large list of various restaurants / bars etc with recommendations for anyone to choose from, which was very helpful to our group..

I think the owners undersell this Villa as it truly is a Great Property - I have rented Villas in the Algarve each year for 6 years now and can honestly say that this is right at the top of the Luxury List!!

Thanks to John & Caron for a wonderful time and we already are looking to book our next visit..

Jeff & Family - Ireland.
