About the property

Luxurious Family Golf front Villa

Recently modernised to a high standard is this 4 bedroom luxury family villa which boasts views of the first green of Vila Sol golf course. This 27 hole, (3 x 9) golf course has hosted the Portuguese Open on a number of occasions. It is just a 20 minute drive from Faro airport, with Vilamoura only a five minute drive away which offers a choice of 5 golf courses plus all the amenities, bars and restaurants available at Vilamoura Marina complex.

It has two double bedrooms and two twin bedrooms. The twin beds can be pushed together to make double bedrooms if needs be. It comes with a large heated pool (additional charges apply) and in the large garden an outdoor thatched bar, with a comfortable shaded seating area. Fully equipped for families with 2 high chairs, 1 full size size wooden cot, 2 travel cots, 1 travel play pen, children's crockery and cutlery at no extra charge. It has an outdoor games area to the side of the villa which includes table tennis and darts. The garden also has a football goal and swing ball for the children to enjoy! The villa is fully equipped with Wifi and TV, offering a wide range of channels including English/Sky channels. It is also fully air conditioned and has an alarm system and safes.

Within walking distance are the resort's restaurants, English style pub, shops, and golf clubhouse. There is also a health spa offering a wide choice of treatments. It is close to the sandy beaches of Quarteira, Vilamoura and Val de Lobo. 2km away from the Villa families can enjoy the Aquashow water park. We recommend hiring a car so you can explore what this beautiful area has to offer. There are two large supermarkets very close by, as well as the local shop in Vila sol resort which sells essential items.

This is a very large, relaxing villa, with wonderful views of the golf course. It has several outdoor seating areas, including a covered terrace and balconies with loungers and table and chairs, perfect for watching the sun go down while sipping a g&t!

We have recently had a thatched outdoor bar area built with plenty of space to escape the midday sun whilst watching the whole family enjoying the pool and garden area .

Also added to the side of the bar in 2017 is a 4 hole putting green for all those avid players and those who just fancy a go.

A new patio extension to the side of the villa has been added with a ping pong table and darts board and further table and chairs.

You will be greeted upon arrival and shown around the Villa to make sure you are happy with how everything works. You will be provided with maps of the local area along with a complimentary welcome food pack.

In peak times we can only accept reservations from Saturday to Saturday. Please ask us though if you would prefer another day and we will see what we can do.

About Kate Barker

We are Kate and Craig and we have two children Evie and Flynn. We live in Essex, but travel as much as we can to our second home in Portugal!

Kate Barker purchased this villa in 2016

Why Kate Barker chose Vilamoura

We started looking for a villa a couple of years ago, we researched a great deal into which area would be best for us and then went about viewing an array of villas. We eventually found our one and have now renamed it Casa Barklee (a mixture of our names) and have turned it into our wonderful second home. Everything about this villa is so relaxing. We love nothing more than spending time outside by the pool with our friends and family.

What makes this villa unique

It has wonderful views of the golf course. The Vila sol estate is so secure and friendly, with a lovely choice of restaurants within walking distance. Children are kept entertained with the pool, ping pong table, football goal and putting green.

Book it!

  • 5 of 5

Book it. This is it, this is the villa you’ve been looking for! Save yourself the hassle and book this villa! It’s fantastic, it’s huge and really well laid out. The garden is also huge, the pictures do not do it justice. The thatched bar area in the garden is superb and much bigger than we had imagined. To top it off, the owners are lovely and responded to my queries straight away (1 of only 2 owners that provided any useful feedback before booking, out of possibly 20 villa enquiries that I made) and provided some lovely personal touches and really helpful advice. The villa manager was also great and so helpful. The whole villa feels luxurious and extremely comfortable including the beds, sun loungers, outside sofa area etc. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is excellent too, within walking distance of restaurants, shop, coffee shop etc. We had a wonderful time here and I would love to return :)

Totally Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

In my job I travel extensively and have the privilege of staying in many beautiful properties. I must say Casa Barklee exceeds all expectations! Set in an idyllic golf resort, in walking distance to various restaurants and amenities you don't even need a car if you truly want to relax.

The house caters for all age groups, is completely modern and offers all the facilities you require. All the bedrooms are of an excellent size and the showers in the bathrooms are all powerful (something not always available in some properties).

The outside area is amazing, such a wonderful sized pool (with the ability to heat at an additional cost), and the bar area is just fantastic!

I must say the photos do not do this beautiful property justice! You need to book it to experience it. I am so glad I stayed at Casa Barklee.

We had a fantastic week. The villa is great - it is perfect for a relaxing holiday and was just what we were looking for in a week away with family and friends. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Villa in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa in an excellent location. My wife, 14 month old son and I have just come back from a week at Villa Casa Barklee and we couldn't have had a better time.

On arrival we were shown around by Sonja who was extremely knowledgeable about the villa and local area. We were also greeted with the necessities to get you through the first day without having to stress about going to the shop, a nice touch. Kate (the owner) had also ensured all the equipment we could need such as high chairs etc are available to us. Essentially, our experience on booking and first arrival was excellent.

The villa itself is stunning and comes with all the extra's you could want. An outdoor bar (recently built), a putting green, table tennis table, dart board, comfortable seating areas, fantastic swimming pool and immaculate grounds.

Overall, an excellent villa in which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a holiday along the South coast of Portugal. We are already looking forward to booking again.

Fabulous! Spacious, luxurious. Great location. Fab

  • 5 of 5

Casa Barklee is such a lovely villa in a great location. It's so spacious making it a great family home.

We loved the heated pool and made good use of the bbq although there are some great restaurants nearbye, although the kutchen is a dream.We played darts, table tennus, swam in the pool and got discount on the golf couse backing on to our garden.

Close to a lovely sandy beach, but our favourite spot after dinner on the terrace was the outside thatched bar in the gardens. Fabulous stay and we have already booked again.
