This is a very attractive villa located within a 10 minute walk to the lovely beach/and lakeshore at Quinta do Lago. The villa exterior has just had a major overhaul and is presented to a very high standard with all mod cons. ONe enters into an impressive hallway with feature staircase to the upper level. The lounge is large with new sofas and has large flat screen tv with all the english channels and sports channels. The lounge leads out to the fab terraces which are very well stocked with new furtniture - including very comfortable sun loungers.

Quarteria has a terrific weekly market dealing in fruit and veg and clothes. The town of Loule located towards the mountains also has a great indoor market well worth a visit. Loule is also a great shopping town.

About Janet Byrne

I am Janet Byrne and I am Irish. My company is called Top Class Holiday Rentals and I am in business since 2008 following a successful career with one of the large banks in Ireland. I rent holiday properties in France, Spain, Portugal and Ireland. I will only rent a property that I am happy to stay in myself

Janet Byrne purchased this villa in 2005

Why Janet Byrne chose Almancil area

I loved this villa from the time I arrived at the gate. In my opinion the property has everything one would need to enjoy a quality holiday. The house is spacious with 4 large bedrooms - all with own bathroom facilities. The kitchen is large, very well equipped and has dining table too. The outdoor area has just been revitalised and is looking so good. Excellent outdoor furniture/bbq finishes off the look. The pool is a good size where one can comfortably swim lengths. Excellent management in place on the ground.

What makes this villa unique

Very well presented gated villa. Lots of parking space to the front. 10 minute walk to both the Quinta beach and to the Lakeshore - great for some early morning exercise. Lovely pool area. Close to the Quinta Shopping facility.

Wonderful Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time I have done a review but having a rented a villa for the first time direct as opposed to going through an operator I think it's important to share our experience.

The area in Quinta da Lago is fantastic, impeccably maintained and great for families, the plaza has everything you would need to make the holiday work (you must have a car thou as you cant really walk to places) It has a good supermarket for the basics (it's a bit pricey), so if you can shop in the supermarket Apolina in Almancil then it's much cheaper (about 30%) and would be a proper supermarket with fresh fish, deli, butchers etc. Plenty of nice restaurants and amazing beaches in the area we spent a lot of time down at the beach near Vale de Garrao it's between Quinta and Vale de Lobo. It also has some great beach resaurants Julias and Antonios right next to you. The restaurant highlight was an amazing fish restaurant called Casa da Lago on the lake very close the villa - it was expensive but amazing food and magnificent setting

The villa we rented was magnificent (one of our friends thought we had rented an embassy!) and was better then the pictures on the site. The team at the managment company helped us whenever we needed them and were very helpful. They installed a brand new barbeque straight away when the one in the villa broke!

From the moment we arrived to when we left we had a wonderful stay on the Algarve and we would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone looking for family holiday where you can grab some peace and quiet and yet be ten minutes from stunning beaches and the night time buzz of the Plaza

Thanks Janet

Regards

Chris

A 20 minute drive will take you to this great villa from Faro Airport. This villa is just minutes from the lovely long beach with its many beach bars. The surrounding area is quiet, just perfect for a get away from it all holiday but yet just a short drive to the Quinta Shopping for all your shopping needs. There are lots of excellent restaurants in the surrounding area as well as excellent championship Golf Courses and Tennis Clubs. How about a stroll through the narrow little streets of the Old Town of Faro which is just a 30 minute drive away. The large Forum Shopping centre is here too where there is a huge hypermarket selling just about everything. The weekly markets of Quarteira and Loule are certainly worth a visit. Lagos and Portamao should also be on the list for a visit and are about 40 minutes drive, whilst a trip further down the coast to Cape St Vincent is a 'must see'.

Other Activities: Please ask the owner if you have any special questions
