EXCELLENT 'HOME FROM HOME' VILLA IN VARANDAS DA LAGO

Quinta do Lago Villa Rental Photos and Description

Detached villa with heated pool - Near Quinta do Lago

Casa Julima in Varandas Da Lago, located between Quinta Da Lago & Vale Do Lobo, is simply a 'home from home' experience - there are no worries about delicate antiques, expensive ornaments that you spend the whole time panicking the children might touch. This is your holiday home and your comfort has been thought about in everything you can see in the villa.

Our philosophy is 'you need not think or worry about anything' - it is all done for you! Our approach is that all you need to do is pack your clothes nothing else... Once you walk through the doors of your holiday home you can relax immediately, kick your shoes off, wander out poolside and sit on the terrace and relax ... You're in holiday mood now - and it feels fabulous...

Car Hire & Airport transfers: We recommend that you have a car. We can arrange car hire for you at very competitive rates from Budget and various other local companies.

We can arrange a private chauffeur 'meet and greet' service for you on arrival or a drop off service to Faro Airport for a small local paid charge.

There are bicycles for hire which makes a very good option to have some transport and to enjoy the woodlands pathway to the beach from the villa.

Tours and Attractions: Many tours are available in the are including horse riding, reef - shark- conger fishing and family fun fishing, yachting/sailing shark and dolphin watching, 4 x 4 safari tours and visits to the Cultural Park. In the villa there is a folder with lots of leaflets for many tours that you can book direct and they usually arrange for you to be picked up and returned at the end of the day.

The Aqua Park and a swim with dolphin experience is a short drive from the villa. Also in the Vale Do Lobo Resort, there is a gym and health club, hair dresser, sports and holistic massage at the Resort Spa you can join as a day member or you can purchase a weekly membership for 2 people from Euro 60 per week.

Or if you prefer treatments of massage, reflexology, reiki, these can be taken in the villa.

In the villa there is a comprehensive information folder with lots of information about restaurants and things to do in the region for your use on your holiday.

Beaches: There are four beaches within a short distance from Casa Julima including Praia Vale do Lobo – these easy walking distance beaches are Praia do Ancao, Praia do Garrao, Praia do Trafal and Praia do Almargem – all beaches are long, open, flat beaches with the trademark red cliffs of Vale Do Lobo beach as the central point for your explorations. From Vale do Lobo you can walk all the way to Praia Forte Nouvo and then onwards to Quarteria and even Vilamoura. In this part of the Algarve there is beach space for everyone and to suit every one and every family.

During the summer season there are lifeguards on safety patrol from early in the morning until sunset on all beaches that provide restaurant / toilet facilities.

FABULOUS VILLA

  • 5 of 5
After reading the details on the website I had very high expectations of Casa Julima and I have to say even those high expectations were exceeded! Everything about the villa was fantastic and spotlessly clean. The villa is in a lovely quiet location but only 5 mins by car to the many restaurants and golf courses in Vale do lobo / Quinta da lago area.The best recommendation I can give is that we have already booked for later in the year and we can't wait to return
