A holiday rental in Vale do Lobo: a getaway to remember.

The booming resort town of Vale do Lobo is located within the so-called “Golden Triangle” of the Algarve. This region, comprised of Quinta do Lago, Almancil and Vale do Lobo, is one of Europe’s most popular resort locations. Vale do Lobo itself is three times the size of Monaco, and has everything a traveller could conceivably ever need, be it a supermarket, medical centre, bank, boutique or bar. A holiday rental in Vale do Lobo offers travellers the prospect of a resort town in proximity to the very best the Algarve has to offer. Whether it be a self-catering Vale do Lobo villa with a swimming pool and access to great golf courses or a comfortable apartment in Vale do Lobo complete with modern kitchen, garden and ocean view, HomeAway has got it.

HomeAway also conveniently has options in nearby Vilamoura as well as in the popular tourist area of Albufeira Old Town and Marina. Those wishing to stay near the resort but in a more rustic town may opt for HomeAway rentals in Almancil.

Things to do

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is the Golden Triangle's most visited and is comprised of soft, golden sand and clean waters. It runs from Ria Formosa to Vale do Lobo. A wooden walkway guides bathers along the length of the beach. There are beach bars and restaurants scattered along the walkway, some with terrific views.

Golf:

A stay in Vale do Lobo is perfect for golf enthusiasts. Vale do Lobo boasts several championship courses and is also near Vila Sol, Old Course, Laguna, Pinhal and Millennium courses to name a few. Up-to-date opening times as well as the ability to make reservations can be found online.

Sao Lourenco Church:

This church is found in the village of the same name near the outskirts of Almancil. Surprisingly, it survived the devastating 1755 earthquake intact, making it a truly unique site. The church's interior walls and ceilings are decorated in traditional blue and white tiles.

Quinta do Lago:

Quinta do Lago is one of the three towns that make up the Golden Triangle. It is an exclusive resort location with numerous five-star hotels, fine restaurants and nightclubs. The Buganvilia shopping plaza is popular, as is the Quinta shopping strip, lined with designer boutiques and jewellery stores.

Faro:

Faro, the Algarve's capital city, is located about eight miles from Vale do Lobo and makes for an enjoyable day trip. Parts of the original 13th century city walls and cathedral can still be seen today, and Faro serves as a starting point for trips to the beautiful Ria Formosa Park.

Vilamoura:

This chic town is located about 11 miles up the western coast from Vale do Lobo. The marina is a busy place with countless yachts berthed there as well as boutique shops, fancy restaurants and exclusive bars lining the streets.

A fantastic place and would recommend to any family, especially as the property has gates to get to the pool, brilliant for children. You will benefit from having a car for the supermarket. Only couple of nagatives: 1. The information to find the property shop to find the key needs a picture of the place you are looking for and a detailed map. It's quite confusing and we spend about an hour trying to find it. 2. The information folder for the property was not set out to greet us and took some finding. The info was quite old and the TV set up instructions were out of date and the WIfi was not working. I had to visit the property shop to try and sort it all out These are two points that would really add value to the experience but once we got in and sorted the issue it was fantastic and we had a great holiday.

My first impression of the resort was how vast it was, there are some 2000 plus properties here. The villa was WOW - Comfy beds, all mod cons, great air con. There is something for everyone, very near the beach and swimming pool would recommend buying resort card for discounts. Daniel was very helpful when i found myself struggling with TV connection and Liz answered any calls promptly. We used the resort bus and taxis but if i was going again i would definitely hire a car. It is a little remote with no shops nearby and the supermarket is probably a 10 minute walk. The reception were not overly helpful as it was not one of their rentals. Overall this place is perfect for a relaxing holiday but do get a car.
