4 Bed/Bath villa with refurbished kitchen and first floor master suite.
About Jo Lacy
I look forward to welcoming you for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday! My husband and I both work hard and are very selective about where we choose to spend our holidays. We have stayed in this villa twice on our own holidays and now I am pleased to be able to offer it as my own property. The previous owners still choose to take their summer holidays in the villa and since taking it over, I have had several repeat bookings. My aim is to make sure that you enjoy your holiday as much as we always have and that you want to come back time and time again!
Jo Lacy purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Jo Lacy chose Vale do Garrao
I chose this villa because its orientation is brilliant - the sun stays on the garden and pool from the morning right through to the evening. It is in an enviable position close to the restaurants, mini market, tennis and olympic sized swimming pool and paddling pool. The sea and stunning sandy beaches are a mere 10 min stroll away. The villa is secure and private, sitting behind automated gates and has lovely views. The pool is very large and can be heated, the furniture surrounding the pool is maintained to an extremely high standard. The sun beds are extremely comfortable, as are the outside sofas. Inside, the villa is well furnished and is extremely welcoming and comfortable! There is table tennis is available outside, together with a trampoline for the children. There is also a basketball net for anyone who is feeling energetic. Everything is on-hand! We benefit from an excellent relationship with our Management Concierge Company, who will be there to help you 24/7 during your stay.

Wonderful Family Break
Super week, lovely vibe and feel to the villa
So pleased to hear you had a good break and enjoyed the feel of the villa. You're welcome back any time!
Great Villa, loads of indoor and outdoor space!
Our family of 5 had a great stay at the Villa.
It is very well equipped, very spacious and in a superb location for use of the communal area an the villa had virtually everything one could ask for.
Great liaison with us throughout the lead up to, and during the holiday, and the taxi company that was arranged for our airport transfers was 1st class.
We hope to return again!
This Villa is gorgeous! We had a wonderful week here & couldn’t have asked for more. It is a home from home, you know it as soon as you walk in the door. Jo & her management company are lovely to deal with too. You will not be disappointed, I highly recommend this Villa for a very relaxing holiday.
Thank you very much for your positive words. I'm so pleased that you relaxed and enjoyed yourself. I work hard with all the team at Management Works to make sure the villa is well looked after and we provide everything we can for guests and their families. It's great to hear the efforts are well received!
Great house, with excellent outdoor space
The house was very much equipped as a "home from home"; lots more than we have experienced in other rentals in the area.
Great bathrooms and all very clean.
The outdoor space is really large and great for children, including the trampoline!
We used the barbq and that was great too.
Thank you very much for your positive review. When the sun is shining the garden is such a great place to be, with shaded areas when needed and lots of spaces to catch the sun. The trampoline always seems too energetic for me and I am amazed when my kids use it after a day in the pool! I'm so pleased to hear you had a great holiday. Thank you for choosing to stay and hopefully we can welcome you back one day!
Beautiful Homely Villa
My wife and myself spent a wonderful week at Jo's Villa in May 2018, from the minute we arrived the Villa had a feel of a very loved home, from correspondence with the owner to the management company in Portugal everything was first class from beginning to end
The problem with giving such a glowing report on our stay is that the secret is now out five stars all the way.
I'm so pleased to hear that you had such a good holiday and thank you for the excellent review. It's really important to me that the villa feels like home-from-home and a bit more personal than other rentals. Our management team always do a brilliant job looking after the guests and the property. I'm very happy that the secret is out and look forward to welcoming you and your wife back in the near future! Thank you for your positive review.
Dunas Douradas (translated to Golden Dunes) is a super location for the whole family. It has everything here you could wish for. The beaches are sandy and very clean and go on for 20 miles in either direction. There are beach restaurants situated right on the beach which provides super food and cater for all tastes. See the locals fish for the catch of the day. Great water sports are available, which have designated places on the beach and due to the beach being so long if you are not a water sport lover there are plenty of very secluded areas for you to go to just get away from it all.
Golf is a must here you are within 4 min drive to the famous Ocean Course and Royal Course at Vale Do Lobo and within 6 min drive to San Lorenzo, Quinta South and North and Pineros Altos all of which are championship golf courses and are of excellent quality.
The water park, Splash and Slide is 8 min drive away so the kids and the young at heart can enjoy a really great day out here!
Live music can be found at several local restaurants and bars at different times of the day and on different days of the week!
Other Activities: Mini golf, horse riding, foot golf, go carting. Great restaurants, clean safe beaches, great customer service
Golf: You are in one of the best places in the world for golf.
Recommended courses are:-
Vale do Lobo, Ocean and the Royal courses
In fact there are about 16 courses in the local area within about 25 min of the villa.
If you want to hire club you can hire excellent quality clubs Callaway, Ping etc for as little as £25 a day! The concierge service can get you very good discounts on most of the courses in the Algarve.
Ski: The nearest ski resort is the Sierra Nevada which is a 3 hour drive away.
