Why Kate R chose Almansil

Since then it has been upgraded and modernised and is a well equipped and comfortable villa. Property registered with Portuguese authorities - rental license number 38863/2015. Key features include; Lounge, with large 6 seater sofa, 3D smart TV with 3D DVD player and cable provided by Lazer, therefore you can watch over 30 UK channels and TV online via youtube etc. All bedrooms have private bathrooms, large fitted wardrobes and individual bathrooms (three en-suite and one adjoining).

Spectacular family villa
We are a family of 5 (my daughters are 9, 7 and 5). We chose this villa as it seemed to have a lot of space and boy was that right! 4 large double bedrooms (two king and two twins) and 3 had en-suites. There are 4 terraces so perfect to escape the sun if needed. The pool is small but perfect for the kids and a quick dip in the day. The location is brilliant too, about a mile from the beach and restaraunt area and a 10-15 minute walk to the supermarket. We did use Uber a lot as it was so cheap. The medical centre onsite is brilliant too, sadly we had to visit there a couple of times with two members of the family getting ear infections. But the service was fantastic. There is a local pizza place that delivers to the villa aswell which was great if we wanted to stay home in the evening. We didn’t get a chance to use the jacuzzi but the view from the roof terrace was beautiful. I can’t recommend this villa enough. The main service mid week was a treat too. The games and DVDs were a hit with the girls too. We want to book again next year but bring my folks along too as there would still be plenty of space with them there.
Great luxury villa
We were blown away with how luxurious and well equipped the villa was. From the abundance of crockery and utensils to the many books, board games and 3D DVD's which kept the children very happy.
The four terraces meant that we were not on top of each other and everyone could relax on one of the many sunbeds or outdoor seating areas.
A really great location too, with it being only a short car journey from many of the beach bars and restaurants in the surrounding area. We used Uber a lot which was not expensive at all.
Would highly recommend this villa for families as it has everything you could possibly need and the resort of Vale do Lobo has great family entertainment at the Praca during the evenings in the summer months.
Great stay in VDL
We travelled as a party of 6. Two adults, our two children and their friends. The villa is very well equipped, spacious, clean and tidy. The boys spent a lot of time in the pool and the girls on the sun deck and in the jacuzzi.
As we stayed at an exceptionally hot time we decided that we wouldn’t walk to the Praça but use the resort bus. For a small fee you can use this bus to take your around the resort. We also used it to take us to Julia’s beach where we spent most of our days.
Kate was very responsive to our queries and I would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
Firstly, great location near to the entrance of the Vale do Lobo complex.
Great find, modern townhouse villa with 4 bedrooms all en suite. Great lounge with UK TV including sky sports enabling me to watch the closing stages of the Open. 3 areas to sunbath, a roof terrace with jacuzzi, a very large patio with the master bedroom and the area outside the lounge with the plunge pool.
30 minute walk to the Praca complex of restaurants and coktail bars, or €3~4 by Uber.
15 minute walk to the Golf course and clubhouse. There is a supermarket also by the entrance.
Great location, will definately return
A gem of a find!
Staying at Kate’s villas has been been a wonderful experience.
We’ve stayed in lots of villas in and around Vale do Lobo and other countries and I have to say that this was by far the most modern and luxurious. Everything that we needed was there. It was spacious and the decor, furniture and furnishings were well finished, clean and contemporary. There is a maid service half way through the stay and they did a fantastic job - the villa was spotless! The villa caters for both families as well as couples In particular the whole family enjoyed using the jacuzzi and my husband and I enjoyed having a morning coffee or a pre dinner drink on the spacious balcony off the master bedroom (which has very comfy and contemporary sun longers and seats).
It’s in a great location in a quiet gated community and in walking distance to Parque do Golf (20 mins) and The Beach and Praca (30 mins). There is also a well stocked super market which is a 20 min walk or a short drive.
All in all we loved it and will hopefully be back.
We throughly enjoyed our family holiday in this wonderful villa. So spacious and caters well for 8 people. We varied in age from 10-79 years and everyone loved it.
Kate was marvellous during booking process and nothing was too much of a problem, easy to communicate with.
We will be returning and recommending to others, have already sent link 5 time and only home 1 day.
Thanks for a super holiday x
