About Mrs Debbie Spengler
Hi there, this is my family - I am the one taking the photo! Keith (my husband) and I have two daughters, Fern and Holly, (hence the name Villa Folly) and in 2010 we became grandparents to our little granddaughter, Ruby. We all live in Oxfordshire and try to have an annual break together at Villa Folly which is our second home. Keith and I are now retired - but lead very busy lives and enjoy golf - particularly when we are at the villa! It is important to us that our guests enjoy our second home as we do and to this end we endeavour to do everything possible to ensure they have a happy and relaxing holiday whilst there.
Mrs Debbie Spengler purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Mrs Debbie Spengler chose Parish of Almancil
I fell in love with the Algarve after Keith took me there for a weekend together (after several of his golfing trips). The villa is our second home. We bought it off plan and when it was built we were not disappointed. The area is beautiful and quiet yet close to all the amenities. It has been fitted to a modern standard with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and plenty of living space. We think there is no where better to enjoy the weather and relax.

Stunning Villa, Fantastic Location
This was our tenth visit to Vale Do Lobo, however our first visit to Villa Folly. The villa itself was perfect, everything that we could have asked for and more, it was clean and well equipped inside and the outside space was fantastic. My three children, aged 13,9 and 6 kept themselves entertained in the pool area for hours. The pool fencing was an added bonus that we hadn't expected. The location was perfect for us as we could walk to the Pingo Dolce supermarket at the entrance to Vale Do Lobo and the Praca was also within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this villa and we will hopefully be booking again for next year.
Thank you so much for your review - we are so pleased the villa met with all your needs and more and that it's location within Vale do Lobo also proved suitable! It's great the pool safety fencing proved an added bonus - our latest upgrade and obviously worth the investment for guests with young children. Thanks for the feedback and we'd love to welcome you again.
Villa folly was perfect. Spotless, modern, extremely well equipped and ideal for our family. We read the books left for the guests use, the BBQ is amazing. We used the resort bus service which worked especially well with our teenagers when coming home from the praca. The pool although not huge was great for a dip to cool down from the heat. We golfed in vale do lobo at reduced rates from the welcome cards. We will be back
Thank you for your review. We are delighted you found the villa spotless and that our endeavours to provide everything a family would want whilst on holiday continue to be successful. The resort bus is always a great plus for the teenagers as the reduced golf rates are for the golfers in the party! We are glad you found both beneficial and are delighted you have booked already for next year!

Fantastic tennis holiday in Vale Do Lobo
We are two families (4 adults, 2 children) who were specifically looking for a tennis holiday for the two children. They are both avid tennis players and we had read good reviews about the tennis academy at VDL. We found several villas on the homeaway site which could have met our needs, but on balance selected Villa Folly. We certainly weren't disappointed, from the collection of the keys on our arrival through to returning the keys at the end of our rental, the whole process was simple and the villa itself is fantastic. Everything you could want/need in a villa rental was available at Villa Folly, 3 great bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen with all mod cons, internet access, great swimming pool, superb barbecue area and even a little English TV if you want it. As we knew that we would be spending a lot of time on the tennis courts, we opted not to have a hire car and used the VDL circuit bus to get around. This was efficient and got us where we needed to be. We generally ate out within VDL itself, there are a good selection of restaurants, although I am sure you could find better value away from VDL itself. The tennis academy at VDL is absolutely fantastic, the staff were all very helpful and certainly provided some 's great insights and perspectives to our daughters tennis. The communication between Debbie and ourselves was brilliant, from the moment we booked the villa until our return. Debbie clearly wanted to ensure that we enjoyed our holiday and that everything met our expectations at Villa Folly. We will certainly return to both VDL tennis academy and Villa Folly itself in the not too distant future.
It was a pleasure to welcome you as our first guests of 2017. We are delighted the villa and resort lived up to it's expectations and that Debbie's communication with you assisted in facilitating a great holiday. It was also good to hear about the Tennis Academy as we ourselves do not play so it was excellent to hear such positive feedback on that area of the resort. We look forward to welcoming you all back.
A lovely villa in a great location
We had a fantastic 2 week family holiday , spanning across all age groups, in this spacious, contemporary, well equipped villa.
The location is ideal, close to the more popular shopping/restaurant areas but also within easy reach of the less populated parts of the beach- which we loved!
The villa has everything you need for eating in & is well equipped for indoor & outdoor catering. Even though it's situated in what appears to be an estate of similar properties we were never aware of our neighbours & it felt private. It was immaculately presented, clean & well maintained.
Communication & booking with Debbie was easy & straight forward. In fact we're probably about to book again. This was our first visit to the Vale do Lobo & we're hooked!
Liz and Marc Marot
Thank you for your kind words Marc and Liz - we are delighted you found the villa and it's location within Vale do Lobo lived up to expectations! Lovely also, to get positive feedback regarding the ease of booking and communication with myself. Looking forward to welcoming you back again!
A lovely place to spend a summer vacation
I have been going to Vale do Lobo for a number of years staying in many different properties. Villa Folly is definitely one that I will be returning to.
My advice to the owners on my departure was to hire a better photographer. The photos on this site in no way do this villa justice. It is a much better property than we expected.
It is also worth mentioning how well appointed the villa is.
The kitchen is stocked well with everything that you may need.
I have no hesitation in giving this villa the maximum five stars.
We are so pleased you found the villa exceeded your expectations and that Villa Folly will see you again! We look forward to welcoming you back again next year. Our thanks for your lovely comments.
