About Eva & Mark Walder

Hi and welcome to Villa Fonte.

We had the villa built in 2005 for our growing family. We lived in the villa while our kids enjoyed the local schools for 5 years. We then decided to return to the UK for a while for our children to attend high school.

We love Portugal and the Portuguese people. The whole place is just so friendly towards us. The beaches are great, the restaurants are super and the Golf is amazing. Also the 250 plus days of sunshine help.

Trust me you will love it. Please feel free to contact me Mark on UK 07733 073575

Beautiful and Luxurious. An ideal house for large family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could wish and hope for in a home away from home.

The age of our group ranged from 4 months to 70 years and everything in between.

Everyone had a wonderful experience.

Would highly recommend this house for a family break.

Lovely villa - relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need and easily accommodated 5 adults and 4 children. We hired a small car for shopping, which suited us fine. The games room in the basement is great and the all important wifi is good in all of the villa

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa was amazing couldn't fault it one bit. Issue with one of the showers but the owner had a plumber onsite within a couple hours and all sorted. Air-conditioning was so good was cold at times and pool was great with plenty of toys and inflatables to keep kids entertained. Cleaning services would of been a nice option to have if available like you would in a resort but mostly was just sad we had to leave.

One thing I would recommend is hiring a car as we didn't and only realised half way through that it would of been far cheaper for simple shopping and day trips as the taxis do add up, although was great as they have Uber operating in the whole of the Algarve so easy to get around.

Would recommend to anyone considering to stay in Fonte Algarve.

Owner's Response: So glad you guys had a great time. We can arrange for cleaners to come into the villa every day if needed at an extra charge. Yes we do advise on a car rental but like you say UBER is available. Hope to see you again some time. Regards Mark & Eva

The villa is amazing, everything you could possibly want for a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this villa. The villa is immaculate with everything you might possibly want for your holiday. The pool was warm, and has a great little shallow segregated area for the little kids at one end. We had one little issue during our stay but one call to Mark and it was fixed by the time we were back from the beach. If we come back to the Algarve, this villa will definitely be top of my list.
