About Claire Smith
I live in Surrey with my wife and three children (well, two of them are taller than me!). I run my own business along with my wife and brother. My hobbies include music and sport. Years ago, music was more than a hobby, as I played in a professional band for five or six years. I pretty much stick to golf these days, with the odd 'gig' now and again (very odd actually!) and as I obviously don't know much about football, I support Crystal Palace!
Claire Smith purchased this Villa in 1980
Pool / Spa
We just got back from a 10 night stay at this super villa! We know the area well and were very excited to find this gem in such a prime location. The photos do not do it justice.......for a start, it's huge, as is the pool and garden area. It's extremely well equipped with beach towels, bath towels (loads!) pool inflatables, toys, DVD's, games and books. The kitchen had every gadget and item possible inc. a dishwasher and a washing machine in separate utilily area. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious, with plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space too.
We particularly liked how all the sliding doors at the back of the villa opened up onto the garden.
It's under a ten minute walk to the local supermarket and about 10-15 minutes to the praca and beach area (bit slower with a 7 & 9 year old!)
If you know Vale do Lobo well, then this is an absolute find. On the negative side, the villa's decor is dated but it's spotlessly clean and so well equipped, we grew to love it more and more each day and will definitely book again!
Thanks Alan and Claire for the great communication before and during our stay too, first class!
Best wishes Natalie
Overall the villa was clean and tidy and the grandchildren loved the pool and inflatables provided.
Vale Do Lobo was an impressively beautiful and very clean resort, if a little expensive.I wouldn't suggest staying anywhere near here if you are on a budget.
Thanks for your comments. Very pleased you enjoyed the stay. Generally people know that Vale do Lobo is an expensive five star resort but our villa offers good value for money for those who want to enjoy the amenities without the high costs.
Great family holiday home
Well equipped spacious villa in a lovely location. Ideal for sun worshippers and pool enthusiasts. Convenient for exploring all of the central Algarve. Property is in need of some refurbishment and two of the three air conditioning units were out of action during our week's stay in really hot weather! The villa has a number of games etc for children and a good supply of books and DVDs. No English language TV channels though. This is by no means a 5-star property but was ideal for our grandchildren and ticks most of the boxes for family accommodation.
Thank you for your feedback.
We have checked the air conditioning units and found them all to be in working order. Other guests have had no problems, so not sure what the issue was. Maybe you had a problem with the remotes? Anyway, sorry for any inconvenience.
With regard to the TV, we know of at least two English speaking channels on the MEO service but it changes from time to time. Glad you enjoyed the dvd's however.
We do not advertise the villa as 'five star' but the resort of Vale do Lobo is officially five star.
Most villas for rent tend to be much more expensive whereas we are offering value for money within a five star setting. Please feel free to check prices of other villas locally in order to have comfort around costs incurred.
