Lovely villa in an excellent location. The pool area and beautifully cared for gardens in particular were exceptional.

I'm going back for sure next year!
This is a really big villa with loads of space both inside and out.
The villa is located in a quiet and private cul de sac and is only minutes (nearly walking distance) to a fine local supermarket and a short drive to larger ones
It is about 10 minutes to the beach in Quinta Da Lago
All bedroom are a nice size and the air con works pretty well, even with all units working at the same time
Showers and bath were good with strong pressure and seemingly endless hot water.
The portugal organizer, Olivia, was excellent. Before and after we booked her communication was first class.
The villa is very secure and privately gated.
There are some nice restaurant around but they are driving distance. Don't be afraid to try some outside the town. Mr Freddie's was quite nice.
- it's a bit dated fixture wise, e.g the kitchen and bathroom cabinets are quite old but everything works perfectly and it wasn't a problem for us
- I don't think it's too suitable for young children (under 3) there are a lot of steps to and from the villa and pool(10 or so) and up to the back door. So you are always conscious of them. Again this wasn't a big deal but it would have been nicer if it was more flat.
- a few beds in the villa were way too hard and we raised this when we left so hopefully they will be replaced.
- there could have been more information on activities in the local area but that is a nice to have.
- the wifi is quite slow. Don't expect to be streaming movies.
I would stay there again no problem and was throughly happy with the villa and the booking process.
Villa Irene was Fantastic it was immaculately clean and spacious! There was plenty of room to escape for quiet as well as communal areas. The bedrooms were all a great size with comfy beds and air conditioning. The outside was lovely maintained with green grassy area and great pool area with table tennis and plenty of comfy sun beds. Car hire is needed as a little iscolated however within walking distance to small supermarket . Close to (beach) 5 mins in car and local restaurants. We would recommend this villa to our friends. David the manager met us at villa and was fantastic help in sorting car hire and taxi transfers even going so far as to give us a lift on the first day to the supermarket, we thought his customer service was amazing!
This villa is located just outside Almancil, the chic neighbouring areas of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are within easy reach, with a number of excellent restaurants, sport and leisure facilities and a superb beach also within a short drive.
This villa is in the beautiful area of Figueiral, outside Almancil, just a few minutes by car from many amenities and excellent beaches.
There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the area, from simple local Portuguese to quality International cuisine, plus excellent beach bars.
The closest beach is 5 minutes away by car at Quinta do Lago - just part of the fabulous sands that stretch for miles along the coast here.
This is a perfect locality to sample a cross-section of all the Algarve has to offer, from local tradition to international style.
Just to the North, Almancil is a thriving town with all manner of shops and amenities.
Two and a quarter miles south are the Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, with chic fashion shops, restaurants and a nightclub. The nearest supermarket is 2 miles in the nearby resort of Almancil, but also a mini-market only at 5 minutes walk away.
Top quality golf courses, tennis centres, horse-riding, a nature reserve, go-karting and a water-splash park are all within a 5 mile radius. Just a little further away, one can visit Vilamoura's international yacht marina, inland Loulé's colourful traditional market and Faro's historic old town.
** Almancil Go Karting**
Situated 4 kilometres from villa Irene and open all year round, the Almancil Go Karting circuit is a replica of the Jacarepagua Formula 1 circuit in Brazil. Try a 160cc or 200cc Go Kart or lift the pace with a 400cc bi-motor model.
**Vale de Lobo golf courses**
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.
The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.
The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.
The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.
**Aquashow Waterslide Park**
The park includes a massive wave pool, superb water slides and mini golf.
Also on site there is a gift shop, changing and shower facilities, several restaurants, sunbeds and all you need to spend a really complete day of amusement.
Aquashow is situated on the N396 as you turn off the main N125 road for Quarteira. Book directly with us and get a discount.
**Quinta do Lago Water Sports Centre**
Catering for water babies of all ages, the centre offers a terrific range of both lake and beach water sports. Windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking and rowing are available on the lake or try a mini course in sailing, windsurfing or water skiing.
Beachside water sports range from the challenging to the relaxing. Get your adrenalin going with high energy sports including parasailing, water skiing and jet skiing or go a little slower on a pedalo. Family beach activities are on offer or try a power boat tour along the coastline.
