About The Owner

The Algarve is only two and half hours away from Gatwick! Regular flights and so much sunshine make short Executive breaks easy to visit several times a year! Our holidays here at Serendipity are never long enough. The villa is continuously maintained to a high standard and has a daily maid and management company available to make a stay here as comfortable as possible. All our family and friends love this beautiful villa which is spread out on the ground floor with each bedroom having a private terrace leading out to the private pretty well looked after garden. BBQ's at night with candles and only the garden and pool lights on... make magical surroundings. It is a special villa!

The Owner purchased this villa in 1970

The villa is away from the crowds at the Marina but within reasonable walking distance if you wanted to go for a walk there and back. Air conditioning in summer and pool heater for the cooler months. Daily maid service during the week for a couple of hours, washing, ironing, babysitting.

Fantastic villa, very close to Marina

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa, 3 bed, 2 bathroom, large lounge with Sky TV, 2 washing machines, fully stocked kitchen, fantastic pool having sun until 7pm plus another garden area. Very secure (alarm, shutters). House maid every weekday afternoon, who looks after everything (including ironing clothes which were on the line)! Less than 5 minute easy walk to Spar Supermarket and a couple of coffee shops, Bakery another couple if minutes on and Jaffers Supermarket. Marina less than 1km, less than 15 minute level walk. Area and walk felt safe. Owners great, great communicators, keys and alarm code arrived as promised and quickly replied to any queries whilst on holiday. Would highly recommend. Will visit again when next in Algarve. Thanks again.

Beautiful villa in every way

  • 5 of 5

This villa is simply beautiful. All the bedrooms are a great size and the beds are really comfortable. The 2 bathrooms are very well fitted out and both have lovely strong showers plus a large bath in each. The kitchen is very well equipped and the lounge and dining areas are interconnected and a fantastic size with great sofas and sky TV. The 2 gardens are really large and there are 2 great seating areas with a BBQ area that is brilliant. We usually love eating out but BBQ'd every evening because it was so easy and a beautiful setting. The pool was large and easily accommodated the 5 of us (which included 2 teenage boys). Lesley and David were so attentive before and during our stay and could not have been more helpful. The housekeeper was a real gem and came in daily (except her day off on Sunday) to keep everything lovely and tidy for us. There is air conditioning through out which is a blessing however the location means that there is a lovely gentle breeze which comes through the garden to take the edge off the hot days. All in all it was a 5* villa and a total gem of a find.

A wonderful villa

  • 4 of 5

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this beautiful house. The house feels more like a home than a holiday villa, the kitchen and bathrooms are super and a lovely dining area. Very secure for our young children, great heated pool and its a lovely location, 15 minutes walk ( with a 3 year old!) to the marina or the old village. The maid is really attentive and lesley the owner made booking so easy and answered my many pre booking questions promptly. The pictures don't do it justice really as the outside area has a large grassed area and a brilliant covered barbecue area where the kids could hide from the midday sun. A lovely holiday.

Car: recommended


The villa is a 5-10 minute drive to Falaisia Beach or the Marina. Stretching out either side of the Marina are two vast sandy beaches, Praia da Marina, (Vilamoura Beach) to the east and Praia da Falésia to the west. Overlooked by pine trees decorating the cliff tops, and at over 8 km long, protected by a natural wall of red cliffs 30 metres high, Praia da Falésia beach offers one of the longest stretches of golden sand in Portugal.


Faro Airport 30 minutes by car.

Further Details:

1000 berth marina is the hub of activities in Vilamoura and the marina quay is perfect for a relaxing evening stroll featuring an exciting mix of designer shopping, restaurants, cafés and waterside restaurants. The Marina area gets lively at night, with everyone coming to eat out and be seen. Various activities at the Marina are available including sailing, Dolphine safari, scuba diving, boat charter, jet ski and bicycle hire. Big game fishing can also be arranged (a boat chartered from Vilamoura in 1993 caught the world's largest recorded black marlin!). Within 10-15 minutes walk there is the Tennis club and pizzeria, bank, supermarket, church, medical centre and cafes.
