Well kept villa in a very quiet and pleasant location, overlooking Quinta do Lago Sul golf course. Nice garden for children to play. Within walking distance to the Quinta do Lago golf courses clubhouse, tennis facilities and the Vilar do Golf reception / supermarket. Very near the beach.
Everything went well and according to what was planned (including twice a week cleaning and linen service).
A DVD player would be a nice add-on for kids to watch movies.
I recommend this property for a family vacation with kids and certainly for a golf vacation, due to its very convenient and quiet location.
Located on the best place of the "gold triangle", quinta do lago, this villa stands on one of the finest location inside the Vilar do Golf development.
Overlooking the golf course, the view from its terraces and windows reaches the quinta do lago lake, is breathetaking and brings you the feeling of beeing almost alone in a wide property.
The villa itself is well equipeded, but has normal finishings and should be updated to actual standarts.
Golf: There are four golf courses in the Quinta do Lago estate. There is also a driving range and practice nearby.
