Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Vale de Lobo

3 Good sized double bedrooms, beautiful sun terrace

Stunning 3 bed detached townhouse with fantastic sea views refurbished to a high standard and located with only a short easy walk to the beach and entertaining Praca. Vale do Lobo has great on site facilities including 2 championship golf courses, Wellness Centre Spa and fitness, Tennis Academy with 14 tennis courts, water and beach sports, internet and games, swimming pools, shopping centre, night club/disco, supervised children's village, crazy golf and many fine restaurants and bars, bank, newsagents and medical centre, supermarket and internal shuttle bus. Whether you have young children or teenagers you can relax knowing there is plenty for them to do. This townhouse is in a particularly quiet area but so well placed for everything. You are not really overlooked and can relax totally in a beautifully presented house that has kept its old charm. Dine outside and enjoy the beautiful views, from the back patio or top terrace. I know you will have a great holiday.

Please contact me if you wish to play golf at VDL as I should be able to get you a 50% discount on green fees on the two courses there.

Why Nigel Walls and Christine Jay chose Almancil area

Just loved the area and the uniqueness of VDL. Its a hugely relaxing place and I intend to spend more and more time there.

What makes this house unique

Close to great facilities in a very secure and up market location. Also extremely close to Faro airport so no long transfers. Just very relaxing

Fantastic Villa - Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was spotless and comfortable and had everything you could ever need. The rooftop dining option was fantastic and it is only a 5 minute walk to the Praça and the beach. I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone.

Wonderful views, beautiful villa, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely holiday. The villa and terrace are beautiful. We really enjoyed sitting on the terrace and enjoying the wonderful views. It really is a stunning location.

It's definitely worth a walk up to Paixa restaurant - the tapas were amazing. We also loved Maria's for it's great sea front location and wonderful fish.

The villa was really well equipped and very spacious – the photos almost don’t do it justice! We loved our time in VDL and left promising to return!

Stunning villa in Vale Do Lobo

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Nigel's Villa. We stayed for 2 weeks in 2015 and 4 weeks this year. We have been coming to VDL for about 20 years and this is by far the best location (just a few minutes walk to the Praca, beach, restaurants) but far enough away to ensure that we are not disturbed by any late night noise from the restaurants.

The villa is decorated and furnished to a very high standard and has stunning sea views from the large roof top terrace and two of the three bedrooms.

We look forward to coming back again soon!

VDL vacation Sept 2016

  • 4 of 5

The villa was in a great location, only 5 minutes walk from the Praca, but in a quiet area, with it's own outdoor space which was much better than most other villas. Inside the layout was great and the decor modern and tasteful. It was very well appointed, with everything you need.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is tht second time we rent the villa and we appreciated it even more this time. High standard, the interior desing and decoration appelaing as well as good service. The only disadvantage is the three levels from kitchen at the bottom and terrace at the top. ¨

We have chosen to stay in Vale Do Lobo and Quinta Do Lago for the past 20 years. Nigel's property (villa 148) is situated within a 2 minute walk of the beech and has stunning sea views. We were also delighted with the quality of outside and interior furnishings. The villa is spacious and immaculately maintained throughout and child friendly. We are looking forward to returning again next year for an extended stay.

Car: recommended

Probably Portugal's best known golf, tennis and beach resort. Set within a beautiful area the beaches are very clean and stretch for many miles of golden sand backed by rugged cliffs. Vale do Lobo does provide everything, but the luxury resort of Quinta do Lago is just 5 minutes away and Almancil can provide all your shopping needs. Easy trips down the motorway will take you to Albufeira and the fantastic shopping mall at Algarve shopping. Going East, Tavira is an attractive coastal town and Olhao has great fish and vegetable markets on the quayside. There are many nearby golf courses, the best in the Algarve and also nearby sports facilities, spa and beauty clinics for the ladies. This is an all year resort with much to do during all the seasons and golf being especially popular in the months outside the very hot summer.
