Villa in Vale do Lobo. Peaceful location. 5 minutes walk from VdL Beach and Praca. Tennis & VdL Clubhouse within easy reach.
Why Lorraine Cowdery chose Vale do Lobo
I bought my property in Vale do Lobo as I loved the area. I had holidayed there on several occasions and had been looking to buy a place in the sun and could not think of anywhere better. It is so convenient for the UK and Ireland. I also love the Portuguese people who seem genuinely pleased to welcome you...... unlike some other European countries. I have now owned my property for 10 years and have not regretted buying in Vale do Lobo for one second. I just wish I had done it sooner. I spend 9 months of the year there and feel I am I credibly lucky to be in such a truly wonderful place. Living so close to the ocean is great and if I want to immerse myself in the Portuguese lifestyle there are many lovely villages and towns less than half an hour's drive away.
What makes this Villa unique
I love the sea and the coastline and feel spoiled that I can walk from my house down to the beach. It is such a beautiful walk with fabulous views. I also love the food and I feel I can completely relaxed there.

Fabulous villa in superb location!
My family and I have been visiting Vale do Lobo for over ten years and this villa has been our favourite! Immaculately presented and with the added bonus of the terrace with the plunge pool, we couldn’t have been happier. We will definitely return!
Extremely clean, well located, and well stocked house
The house was very clean and extremely well stocked. Every cooking gadget we needed was there and a great outdoor BBQ. Lorraine the owner was lovely and very helpful.
However Val de Lobo wasn’t really our kind of place, although our teens loved it.
This is a great location in Vale de Lobo. Easy walking distance of everywhere but far enough away from the Praça so you’re not disturbed. Lorraine is a lovely and accommodating host.
The Villa was well appointed ,very clean and in a really nice location, we very much enjoyed our stay .
Superb Villa, the location is brilliant, the view is amazing and Lorraine was fantastic!!!
Our flight was late and yet Lorraine was very kind enough to wait for us to check in late as she also monitored our flight too...She’s absolutely an amazing person!! As she also allowed us to check in late too. The villa was given to us very clean, there was 10 of us that slept in the villa very comfortably (with the air conditioning). The kitchen was very ideal for us as she kept all the necessary items you would need. The size of the 3 shower areas were absolutely massive and ideal when you have a big family/group. The location of the property is based in the best area in my opinion, I’d say it’s the richest area of Portugal. Walking distance to the beach (which is the cleanest in Portugal) and the main resort area, the villa is based in the most quietest area ever. Water parks, Villa Moura and Albufeira are the areas we covered which are all less than 30 mins away. So if you’re looking for the best area to stay in Portugal.... this is the place to book, even if you simply want to go and relax.... Thanks Lorraine for letting us stay and making our holiday magical xxx
