Farmhouse near Almancil, Quinta do Lago, Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location
Beautiful restored typical Algarvian Formhouse. Once a delightful family home, a two storey villa has retained a homely atmosphere. Situated in a peaceful location, with outstanding views of the surrounding areas (Faro, Quarteira, Almancil and the sea), it is quiet and tranquil without being totally isolated. The villa has excellent facilities and is comfortable, spacious, and decorated in an authentic rustic style. Rooms are furnished to a high standard and the lounge has lovely French doors that lead on to an attractive shady area and to the lovely garden, good sized swinming pool, with a coverd barbecue area and children´s swing and slide shaded by olive tree. The beach resorts of Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura are about a 10m drive making this villa a great base for a larger group who want plenty of choice of activities and spacious property. The villa is close to plenty of very good restaurants and supermarkets.

6 adults, 4 children and 3 babies were very easily accommodated within this Villa, and Jenny did as much as possible to make our stay more comfortable. She met us on our first night and went through all the information regarding the farmhouse. We had a bit of trouble with the transfers as the sub contracted transfer company couldnt find the villa, but one call to jenny she was en route to collect us. I would recommend hiring a car for your stay as it is a lengthy walk to the shops and local towns. The Villa itself is very beautiful, spacious with ample of room inside and out, large pool, small football pitch, large BBQ area. Would also recommend the water park 10 mins away (Aquashow) highly, we went there twice during our stay. Overall a 5 star villa! Thanks again Jenny.
Stunning, beautiful villa.
My family and I, a group of 10 adults spent two wonderful weeks at this stunning villa. Jenny the owner met us at the airport and showed us the way to the villa and then a guided tour of the villa. Very good and personal service. The villa is 20 minutes from Faro and within easy reach of shops and beaches. Car hire is necessary but driving around is easy. The views were stunning, the pool is big, although the heating (paid extra) wasn't very good and stopped a couple of times so never really heated up, although the heating of the pool is managed by the property company not the owner. Plenty of space to relax and chill out. Outside BBQ, and games areas along with outdoor eating areas. Maid was lovely and came around often to change towels and bedding. Housekeeper lives onsite in a separate house, so any issues can be dealt with immediately. We would highly recommend this villa and would certainly be booking again. Thanks to Jenny and her team for making our stay very enjoyable.
Hola! estoy interesada en alquilar esta casa desde el 16 al 23 de agosto de 2014. Somos 13 amigos y quería saber si una de las habitaciones doble podría ser triple para que quepamos todos. También vamos con dos bebes menores de dos años que dormirían con sus padres.
Estuvimos la última semana de junio y todo fue perfecto. Éramos 6 adultos y 7 niños y estuvimos de maravilla. La casa es muy amplia y tiene todo lo necesario. Y el exterior tiene de todo. Los niños no querían salir en todo el día (piscina, fútbol, ping-pong, futbolín...). El jardín está muy cuidado y la zona de la barbacoa es muy agradable. Jenny, la propietaria, fue muy amable en todo momento y nos facilitó información sobre diversas actividades en la zona. La recomiendo absolutamente para grupos numerosos como el nuestro (tres matrimonios con niños). Si alguna vez volvemos de vacaciones al Algarve, volveríamos a elegir esta casa. Sin duda.
