About Chris Ehinger
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.
Chris Ehinger purchased this house in 2003
Why Chris Ehinger chose Vale do Lobo
What a location ! Need we say more.
What makes this house unique
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 ( you don't have to climb up to the roof terrace) is the main attraction of the house.
