We are a family with two teenage children, and bought the villa from my parents, so this villa has been in the family for 30 years. We renovated it, and have been renting it out since 2006. Generations of kids have enjoyed holidays here, from babies through to teens, twenty somethings and young adults to older families with grandparents.
We love the peacefulness here, yet there is so much to do. We try to enjoy holidays here three or four times a year, sometimes with the kids, other times just with friends.
We live in Berkshire, England, having moved from the States in 1996.
What a location ! Need we say more.
The proximity to the beach and all the facilites of the Praca - indeed much of Vale do Lobo is walkable from this location. But the special and quite unique view we enjoy from the ground floor terrace (ie. you don't have to climb up to the roof) is the main attraction of the house.
Vale do Lobo is Portugal's best known and largest golf, tennis and beach resort. In an area of outstanding natural beauty with protected grassy reserves, the beaches are pristine, and stretch for mile upon mile of golden sand with dunes and golden cliffs. A truly year round destination, with three premier golf courses, the Tennis Centre with 14 multi surfaced courts, pool and gym, the Royal Spa and Fitness Centre with indoor pool and gym, Hamman and luxurious beauty treatments, Equestrian centre, biking, and go-karting to name but a few activities. In the summer enjoy waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing and sailing. There are so many fabulous restaurants, of varying price ranges, that it is impossible to visit them all in one holiday. 20 minutes from Faro airport, and within easy reach of several excellent shopping centres, cinemas and waterparks. The local shopping centre (5 minute drive) has with everything from local pottery and handicrafts, to international designer name stores. The villa is located in a prime position with wonderful sea views, and is perfect for all ages. A car is not necessary, but recommended as the supermarkets are a short drive away.
