About Dr Charles or Mrs Judy Wood

I am a recently retired GP from West Sussex. We have been coming to Vale do Lobo as a family since 1984 and many years before that as a couple.

Dr Charles or Mrs Judy Wood purchased this villa in 1998

Why Dr Charles or Mrs Judy Wood chose Almancil area

We loved this villa for its central location in the resort and proximity to the Tennis Academy.

It is a lovely base from which to explore the Algarve and recently we have ventured further North for a few days.

What makes this villa unique

We loved the large South-facing upper terrace and the general spaciousness inside the villa as well as its central location.

From the outset we decided to make the most of the Algarve sunshine and have installed a solar-augmented hot water system and a Photo-voltaic electricity generating system which makes our villa close to carbon-neutral

Dear Charles and Judy, we have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Portugal. The villa is lovely, spacious and very well equipped. The weather was lovely and hot with a blue sky every day. The Barringtons membership was very useful the facilities were excellent. The restaurants at The Praca were most enjoyable as was Ken homs Chinese. We went horse riding a Quinto do Lago riding stables and played golf at Villa sol.

Thank you so much for the hire of your villa we shall certainly be back again one day and recommend it to our friends. Kind regards, JF Summer 06

Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This villa is very spacious, with a well equipped kitchen. The bathrooms are modern with a limitless supply of hot water. The upstairs bedroom is very pleasant and airy, but the downstairs bedrooms are a bit on the dark and dreary side. The louvre doors on the built in wardrobes could do with an update.

The Barringtons membership worked out very well for the kids to go swimming and to the gym.

The owners were very pleasant to deal with, and put in a new hairdryer when I asked if there was one.

The computer with broadband was very handy.

Overall, very much a home from home!!

You do need a car to get around, but this is the case in this area generally.

Owner's Response: It is always good to have feedback and we are keen to act on reasonable suggestions such as this. To this end we will be painting the louvre doors in the downstairs bedrooms very soon. More updates are also planned, in particular replacing the windows and making the ground floor terrace rather more secluded.

Lovely spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a relaxing holiday in the Algrave. The villa was lovely just what was advertised. The agents were helpful attentive and prompt with any issues. The cleaners also did a good job. It's lovely to lounge around and just jump in the pool when you like! It is a really nice villa it has everything you need.

Great villa, spacious & well located

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews, but we recently returned from our second stay in this villa and wanted to share our recommendation.

Villa well kitted out, including basic Sky and Wifi. Rooms large and open plan living area works well. Bedroom layout offers different combinations as splits easily into two - for example grandparents sharing with a family

Well located for tennis and Barringtons (gym with indoor pool - swimming hats now compulsory under Portugese law). Membership of Barringtons is included and is a real plus.

Owners are very helpful. Keen to go back another time!

Owner's Response: It's always good to have repeat clients and, in case anyone reading this is renting to James, I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a 'renter'!

Excellent Villa & Location

  • 5 of 5

We are a party of five and this is the fifth time we have stayed at this villa. The villa location is excellent only a 20mins drive from airport and a 10mins walk to the beach, restaurants, etc.There are 2 golf courses only a 2mins drive away with another 4 courses only 10/15 mins drive away.

There is an excellent tennis academy only mins away with many courts & equipment for hire, also the owners provide free membership for your stay at Barringtons sport & leisure club only 300yds away, which comes in handy if the weather is not so good.

The villa itself is very spacious clean & well maintained, with any queries or problems sorted out quickly and efficiently by the owners and their management team.

The kitchen is well equipped as well as dining/living areas with very comfy furniture, etc, sky tv, computer broadband, etc. The bedrooms are also well equipped with large built in sliding door wardrobes & chest of drawers.

The villa is very good for families & the over 60's as the dining/living area, kitchen, bathroom & 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor with only the 3rd bedroom & ensuite & outside terrace on 1st floor.

The living area on the ground floor opens out onto a terrace with built in BBQ & a very welcome plunge pool plenty big enough to swim & relax outside with sun loungers, umbrellas etc.

We would definately recommend this villa, as we've previously said this is our 5th time and as they say " the proof of the pudding is in the eating", enough said.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa very convenient for both Tennis Valley and Barringtons.

Membership of Barringtons is a great bonus as it allows free use of their gym sauna and classes as well as their pool

McGinty's is a great source of cheap booze!!

The pool at the villa is just the right size for cooling down when the weather gets very warm and the layout of thevilla gives lots of privacy as well

Car: recommended

Vale do Lobo, Algarve is one of the finest villa resorts in Europe with 2 wonderful golf courses and a tennis centre that hosts the senior tennis tour in August.

The beach is first class with fine beach restaurants and shops at the Praca.

The resort is constantly but unobtrusively patrolled by security staff for your peace of mind.

Within an easy drive you can be walking the glorious cliff tops of Carvoeiro or peacefully in the hills above Loule

Other Activities: Water-park 20 mins drive. Go-karting track nearby
