About Jill Parkinson
Back in 1984 we took a last minute, unplanned holiday to Portugal. We flew to Faro, on the south coast, hired a car and drove from Tavira to Cape St. Vincent with many stops on the way. We fell in love with the West Algarve, its friendly people, the charming old walled town of Lagos, steeped in history and with its views across The Bay of Lagos. Wonderful blue skies, turquoise sea, warm sunshine and miles of beautiful, golden, sandy beaches. With the added bonus of being so close to the stunning protected beaches of the West Algarve coast, craggy cliffs, soft sand, wide estuary's and surf. This was an big extra draw. It reminded me of years of family holidays in Cornwall, but with great weather & my husband was missing his earlier years in the South African sunshine!
Jill Parkinson purchased this Villa in 1980
Why Jill Parkinson chose Lagos
By the end of our holiday, we returned home to the UK, as proud owners of a half built house on a south facing hillside! After a couple of years we moved, lock, stock and barrel, to The Algarve, with our two small children, to live the dream! Sadly after 7 happy years we had to return, secondary education for our two boys beckoned. But we haven't looked back, we continue to spend as much time there as possible, visiting old friends and enjoying holidays for celebrations with family, friends and children of all ages. We love sharing it with all of you and really appreciate all the great feed back we get! Over the years my husband has worked hard and developed the garden.
What makes this Villa unique
I now have a studio in the garden, (I don't use this while guests are staying) and have had many exhibitions of my paintings in The Slave market in Lagos. Unfortunately for us artists, this has recently been converted from an Art Gallery into The Slave Museum! I have been lucky that our guests have sometimes bought my paintings, that they have seen in the villa. And sometimes I have been commissioned to do paintings of places that they have found evocative and wish to remember. We have been advertising with Owners Direct since January 2004 - and have had many lovely family's and groups of friends, staying in our villa. With many coming back again and again. A very real ''Home from home
