About Valerie Crellin
We are both lawyers and have four children and three grandchildren. We live in Surrey and until very recently owned and ran our own legal practice. We have holidayed in Portugal for over 30 years and think it is a fantastic area for families. We play golf and enjoy games at various local courses. We are also keen tennis players.
Valerie Crellin purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Valerie Crellin chose Almancil
We liked this property because it is spacious with four good sized bedrooms so there is plenty of room for family to visit. The pool is a good size and the dining area is shaded and spacious. It is well placed for Quinta do Lago and Val do Lobo and nearby beaches. The area is quiet and very attractive.
What makes this Villa unique
This villa felt like home as soon as we went in and for all the reasons detailed above it is ideal for family holidays, couples going away together or girlie holidays away.
Pool / Spa
We stayed in your villa, the passed August 2012.
In 2013 it was not possible because we needed 5 bedrooms.
This year 2014, as we need 4 bedrooms, we would like to rent it for the period 02/08 to 16/08.
The only thing it was not good during our stay was the absence oh lightning in the swimingpool and the maid service ( real vey bad ).
So tell us iof it's avalable, the price and if its possible to improve the above problems. Best regards. ( Armindo Martinho e Angelo Cardoso )
