Wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little nervous to book online, but the speedy response of the owners with their attention to detail, soon put our minds at rest. The villa was spotlessly clean and in a perfect location. Our children were able to wander over to the tennis club to get ice creams, without having to cross a road, which they loved of course. We will be back!

Easter 2017

  • 4 of 5

A terrific week in Vale de Lobo. Nice apartment with all essential amenities. Suited us perfectly for week of relaxation. Nice outdoor furniture, spacious balconies and a heated pool. Location is a little away from the beach but we found a nice short cut around the side of the tennis courts which saved 5/10 mins. Nice restaurants in the area which were recommended by the owner. We found having a car essential for getting to supermarkets and restaurants but everything we required for the week was within 15/20 mins of the apartment.

Wonderful Villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Location is excellently situated for all amenities, really close to the Tennis centre and a short distance from the golf. The villa itself is spacious and well equipped with everything you need, WiFi was excellent. the outdoor space including the pool are great, large table and chairs for eating "alfresco" and lovely sun beds for reading, sleeping and sunbathing.

We will be returning. Thank you JJ

Review of Vale do Lobo villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa during July 2011 for 8 days and had a great holiday. The owners were very helpful and responsive during the booking process and provided helpful suggestions regarding car hire and other requests for information. The villa has a top end finish and meets all the requirements for a comfortable holiday home. It is also well located for the tennis centre and not far from the beach. There is an excellent Chinese restaurant nearby called Ken Lo which also offers a takeaway service which is very useful if you have young children and are not inclined to cook. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two young children had a wonderful holiday this May. The villa more than exceeded our expectations and was large, spacious and very tastefully furnished. The villa is in a very peaceful location and has two great outdoor spaces - a large terrace out of the main bedroom and great poolside area. The big bonus also is having a heated swimming pool! Also close proximity to some wonderful sandy beaches. A perfect holiday. We would thoroughly recommend this villa and would definitely book again!

great villa great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa last year in May for 2 weeks We were there for a friends wedding.We had a great time and are coming back again this year.Our son at the time was 6 months old and our daughter was 2 and a half.It was the perfect place for us as everything is there that you need when you have small children plus it means you don't have to take so much stuff.The facilities make it home from home really with fully equipped kitchen and a charcoal bbq at the back etc.Great for getting all the kids clothes washed and great for cooking something that you know theyll like and then getting them to bed in the evening so you can chill out by the pool in the evening, or if you fancy watching the tv then every channel you could need while your on holiday is there including the sports ones.There's a dvd player too with quite a few films provided.

Everything was spotless and the villa is beautiful and very comfortable.

Vale do lobo is really lovely.We have actually been a couple of times before.The other time at a friends parents place.Down at the front there are some nice restaurants which we only ate in last year for lunch but the food was great and friends said they were fine in the evenings.There's a couple of nice bars which weren't that expensive if I remember correctly.

We tended to walk to the greeat beach in the mornings(10 mins) and then get lunch and spend the rest of the day back at the villa so babies could have their naps and we could relax by the pool or watch people at the tennis club trying to play tennis.

The only problem we had was getting stranded out there as our flight got cancelled for 3 days due to the Iceland Volcano.The owner Charles was extremely helpful and let us stay stay at the villa the 1st night and then was very reasonable when renting the villa next door for the next few days. He was also very helpful when we were having difficulties with refunds from flight company as like most insurance policies were useless.

We can't wait to get back out there in June.

About Karen and Charles Wainwright

We live in the UK with our children, but love to escape to Portugal, as often as possible! With the flight being only 2 and a half hours and the resort being less than thirty minutes from the airport, it makes it all very easy. We hope you will enjoy the villa as much as we do!

Karen and Charles Wainwright purchased this villa in 2008

Why Karen and Charles Wainwright chose Almancil

We have been visiting the Algarve since we were children. We bought this lovely villa in a perfect location away from the road and with beautiful views over Tennis Valley. Vale do Lobo is a great resort with lovely restaurants, bars, beaches and golf courses.

What makes this villa unique

We have just renovated the villa and put in new bathrooms, kitchen, tiling, TVs with sky, wifi and air-con. You will love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Charles and Karen

I understand that you don't usually ask for reviews but I wanted to insist!

The villa is fantastic and in such a great location. The beds were so comfortable as is the whole villa.

It was lovely having the pool heated and we look forward to coming again next year.
