About Filipe Rodrigues

I´m an architect working and living in Lisbon. This Villa is where I spend my family holidays and where I go always to have a break.

Filipe Rodrigues purchased this house in 2008

Why Filipe Rodrigues chose Loule region

This Villa was restyled to be used in our family holidays. We tried to put into this Villa beauty and comfort enough to relax in our holidays. Now we also want to share it with you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mrs Paula made us welcome and everything in the house was lovely and clean and tidy. House was of a high tasteful standard and the kitchen was lovely and very well equipped.

It was reassuring to know that you (Filipe) were easily contactable.

Many thanks for a great holiday!

Very quick to get to from the airport, 30min drive and even quicker to get to the beach, 10min drive. This Villa is in a quiet neighbourhood of private villas and has a great heated pool which is not overlooked by neighbouring properties. The pool is very well maintained being checked and cleaned at least twice during our stay. The property as a whole was very clean and tidy and we enjoyed using the spaces inside as well as outside where there is a well equipped barbeque area. We tavelled with a small baby and found it useful that there was a cot upstairs as well as dowstairs and there has a highchair available. We had a very peaceful and relaxing stay here with no complaints.

A fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this Villa for a week in June with my wedding party, there were 8 of us altogether. It was extra important to us that the villa lived up to our expectations as my wedding photos were being taken there on the morning of the ceremony. To say we were delighted with our choice is an understatement!

From the very start Filipe was most helpful and accomodating. The Villa was spotless on arrival, thanks to Mrs Paula, everything was in working order, it was modern, spacious, fresh and very comfortable. The pool area is immaculate and the heated pool was even an extra bonus as a number of our Wedding guests were staying in other villas in which the pools were not heated. I was in a number of other Villas during that week visiting guests and I can honestly say that Panama House was by far the most modern and comfortable of them all.

The location is a little out from central Vilamoura, but still only 20/25 min walk downhill, we generally got a taxi back up, usually around 8euro. It is a good 10 minute walk to the nearest Supermarket at Old Village but that was made easier by the addition of two bicycles.

If I were returning to Vilamoura with a group I couldn't recommend this Villa enough. It was fab!

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely relaxing break at the villa. Upon arrival Paula greeted us and showed us around, and provided us with a local taxi number so we had no problems calling and booking with them. The villa is very spacious and had everything we needed, the two bikes came in handy for getting to the small store in the Old Village. The bedrooms are all large and lots of storage, bathrooms are lovely. The pool was great had sun all day and there is shade if it gets too hot. Overall a wonderful stay and looking forward to going back.

Simply amazing villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fantastic with a lovely open plan space downstairs opening onto a brilliant family pool. The layout of the villa is very well suited to more than one family with a double ensuite room downstairs, with another 3 rooms upstairs. The space in the garden allows you to have sun or shade all day. Filipe the owner was at hand to help with any additional requests before and during the holiday with very prompt and helpful assistance.

The villa is very well equipped and has a fantastic bbq area which we used on a number of occasions.

If you are looking for a great family villa in Vilamoura which is within walking distance of the Old Village and the Marina then I would highly recommend this villa.

Trip advisor

I and 5 other adults, have just returned from a week at this villa. When we first arrived we were greeted by Paula who kindly showed us around the villa. My first impression was that it appeared to have everything we expected. Unfortunately there was a problem with the air conditioning which couldn't be repaired until the Monday but there was a free standing fan that could be used.

We paid a refundable deposit, but as there was no inventory for us to check what should be there we thought we had better check ourselves. We used the description on this website as a guide to what we should expect.

We discovered:

Inside - the following things were missing

Mobile phone - which would have been handy for us to telephone taxis

Macintosh computer/PC

Video/DVD library

Local restaurant guide - again this would have been useful

It would have also been useful to know where the supermarkets were.


The outside space was extremely limited which was disappointing as you couldn't sunbathe until midday. There were only 5 sun beds (there were 6 of us) and two of them had seen better days. The wooden decking needed to be repaired during our stay as it was a safety hazard. The bikes both had flat tyres and no means with which to repair them.

I feel that general cleaning products, washing up liquid etc should be provided, with a note to replace anything that we finish during our stay.

With hindsight, as the last review was a year prior to our visit, I wonder whether the villa has been used during that time as it was extremely tired looking and grubby. A real shame because with some TLC I would be happy to recommend this villa to friends and family as the location is great.

We will be returning to the area, but will look for accommodation in the 'old village'

Owner's Response: Hello Debra, I suppose you also joined Julie & Griffith on their booking and I´m so sorry you were disappointed with your stay. Julie & Griffith wrote me after checking-out saying they had a great week at the Villa and had no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends. I don´t know if you were looking for something different but if you look and the listing all details are updated. In fact the Villa doesn't have a mobile phone and a Macintosh computer/PC. If I had the opportunity to communicate with you as I did with Julie & Griffith I´m sure you would have received all detailed information as well as local restaurants, things to doo, etc. In the second day of your stay one air condition unit and deck was repaired. Kind regards, Filipe.

Amazing Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed at Panama House for a week recently. 6 adults and 2 children and my overall view is that it is a great place to stay. The owner Filipe was excellent throughout the whole booking process and was easy to contact before and during our stay. An extremely decent gentleman.

As for the villa itself it is set in a really nice neighbourhood a short taxi ride from the marina (approx 7 euros). The villa was very clean on arrival and everything was in good working order. It has plenty of room and the pool was excellent and used regularly. It is a decent size and ery nice to swim in. It will be missed!

For the bbq fan there is a very nice outside charcoal BBQ which again was used several times.

The kitchen and living areas were spotless as were the bedrooms and bathrooms.

The bedrooms were of decent size and had good AC.

The bathrooms were also very nice.

The living area has a large TV, comfy seating and a selection of books.

Nearby is the old village resort which has several bars, restaurants and a local supermarket thats stocks the essentials.

Should you require fresh meats then a large supermarkets Pingo Dolce was around a 10 minute drive and had everything you would need.

Nearby to the villa is a small bar Cafe Del Arte (2-3 mins walk) that served superb tapas and is highly recommended.

Overall if you are after staying in a classy villa in a lovely neighbourhood that is extremely quiet at night then Panama House is the one for you.

Filipe I look forward to my next stay there!

Many thanks for the villa

John and family

Vilamoura is considered one of the best resorts in Europe. Panama House is in a quiet location next to Old Village, Four Seasons, Hilton and Pinhal Golf Course. Everything is within walking distance or short driving distance including beach, marina, golfs, shops, bars, casino, restaurants, and supermarket.

A car is not essential, unless you want to explore the surrounding area. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the immediate area. The mini train stops very close to the villa. Bicycle hire available locally.

A very well stocked supermarket is in the Old Village area which is minutes walk from the villa. Vilamoura's beautiful international yachting marina is a leisurely 20 minutes walk away with a variety of excellent restaurants, first class shopping and a casino. A variety of leisure activities are available such as water parks, Zoo Marine, Jeep safaris and sailing trips. Taxis are reasonable.
