About Pamela Carter
The villa is maintained to the very highest standard. We have been hosts to celebrity photoshoots and small weddings in the beautiful tropical garden. The games room features a top of the range foosball table, and pool table, with a speaker system which is compatible with your iPhone. From here, an external door leads to the private patio with a ping pong table. In the state of the art cinema room, there is a Play station 3, a big screen smart TV with a full Sky Package. There are plenty of places to curl up with a good book in the garden, including a "Fatboy" hammock, with a wall of flowers to one side for privacy and shade, and an "Apple" Daybed.
Pamela Carter purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Pamela Carter chose Almancil
We chose a plot which in on the 8th fairway of the Ocean Golf course, and also overlooks the 7th green. From our raised seated area in the garden, as well as the master bedroom outdoor terrace we have views across the Vale Formosa to the Ocean.The villa is at the end of a cul-de-sac, away from the bustle of the main area of the resort. On the north side of the villa there are views of farmland beyond the pristine golf course. There is a feeling of open space which is not always the case in the resort. The grocery store is walkable distance, while Quadradihnos tennis centre which has a bar/cafe is only a short walk away. In Quadradihnos ("Jardims do Golf") is one of the resorts' most popular restaurants, Paixa, popular with the Portuguese as well as the tourists.
What makes this Villa unique
The bedrooms are located on 3 separate floors, with the master suite occupying all of the top floor. Three bedrooms are located on the ground floor, and 2 bedrooms at lower ground floor. Besides the SUBZERO fridge freezer in the kitchen, there is a fridge freezer in the games room and. There is a new barbecue area so now the chef looks out to the golf course, whilst cooking on his choice of a BIG GREEN EGG or a gas barbecue, with an outdoor drinks fridge close at hand. There is a garden swing seat, located for watching the setting sun across the 7th green out across the neighbouring farmland. The heatable pool is 5 meters by 9 meters and was new in 2013. It has a U shaped bench seated area with jet streams, and has been lined in smooth charcoal grey quartz-crete. We provide dressing gowns, towels, linens, beach bags, cool bags. I am able to offer 1/2 price golf on the two Vale do Lobo golf courses for guests at the villa.

Stunning Luxury Villa
Villa Eugenia is a truly special property. We have the philosophy that we try to stay somewhere nicer than our own (admittedly rather nice) home but this is the first time I can say we definitely managed it! The kitchen instilled some serious envy in my husband (fantastic ovens with pizza setting that resulted in perfectly cooked pizzas, power opening drawers that are so cool, two dishwashers and we are now planning to install a Quooker tap in our kitchen - they are brilliant as we realised in Villa Eugenia!). It's the little details like this that make the villa so special. Lovely bathrooms with superb fittings, a gorgeous pool with built in spa pool area, high end games room with football and pool tables, plus a cinema room which I'm reliably informed by the boys has amazing surround sound. The views over the golf course are superb and provide for some great viewing whilst BBQing or from the kitchen sink... (plus the occasional dink of a ball hitting a tree by the villa much to the joy of the golfers in our party). Sunsets from the terrace off the main bedroom are stunning. Sky TV with full coverage of the Open was a real bonus too, plus wifi is very good for anyone that needs to stay connected or work as we did occasionally.
The villa is a fair distance from the Praca (restaurants, bars, beach etc) which those who want to walk everywhere need to be aware of but you can pay 25 Euros pp for the week (kids under 6 I think are free) and the Val de Lobo staff will pick you up in a private minibus and take you anywhere you want to go in the resort. Although we thought this was costly at first it proved to be a great luxury - and on busy nights a real bonus as we seemed to always be picked up first which feels like proper VIP treatment!
Please note that the electronic gate to enter the villa (which gives great security, we felt very safe with our young children) is fairly narrow so for nervous drivers like me perhaps don't book a huge hire car!
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough for families or groups of friends who value a bit of luxury and appreciate some of the finer things in life. Pamela responded quickly to all my questions and pointed us in the direction of some great restaurants. Cleaners, gardeners and pool staff were all superb and visited promptly without intruding on our privacy. We are already planning our next trip back to Villa Eugenia - we just need to find a week when it isn't already booked!
Amazing Villa - complete luxury
Wonderful villa for a family, or two. Plenty of space to spread out and facilities for the children to enjoy their own time (cinema room, table tennis, games room). The pictures don't do the villa justice. Our only regret is that we didn't book another week! Thank you so much for providing a great villa!
