About Mrs B Goodall
We are a family of 5 - who have always loved coming to Vale do Lobo. After renting for many years we decided to buy our own, something we have never regretted. We hope when you visit you will find it as much as a family home as we do.
Mrs B Goodall purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Mrs B Goodall chose Loulé
We love the fact our villa is a quiet street in Vale do Lobo. Some of the properties closer to the square can be noisy during the hight of summer. We also love to have the full use of all of Vale do Lobo's many excellent facilities, but at the same time have beautiful 380 degrees views over green tree tops from our roof terrace.
What makes this Villa unique
Vale do Lobo offers an excellent car rental service. Taxis are cheap or you can use the excellent Vale do Lobo mini bus service (small weekly cost) - or why not use the Boris-Bikes now available and get fit at the same time. if you are a golfer - speak to us, we will be able to book your rounds of golf as our guests, and therefore at discounted price. If you want to play tennis - Vale do Lobo has fantastic facilities, including their award winning academy weekly courses - for all ages. The Vale do Lobo website will show you all the facilities, including the beautiful SPA and Gym, restaurants, child care etc www.valedolobo.com

Perfect spot for a quiet family break
Betina, the property owner was highly responsive and kind. She gave us so much information about the villa and about things to do / where to eat etc.
The villa itself was much bigger that we had expected. The rooms were all generous in size and the master had a lovely seated terrace outside, looking down on the pool. There is another roof terrace right at the top of the villa, so there is so much room!
All creature comforts were provided: Wi-fi, hairdryers, al cooking utensils you could ever need, beach kit and kids car seats etc etc.
It was like a home away from home!
Quintessential modern Algarve villa
Spacious, modern, private, well designed with living/dining areas inside and out to suit either morning, afternoon or evening summer days relaxing. Always a nook to "hide away".
Ideal for our 3 generation family stay with "oldies" downstairs bedroom/ensuite and "parents and children" sleeping upstairs, both with ensuite or bathroom.
Pool and surrounds are lovely with range of comfortable seating. Complimented by stunning Bougainvillia, hibiscus etc. Pool is visible from indoor living area so ideal for younger children.
Location is very quiet, at end of gated street with aspect over pines. Balcony has the sea in the distance through the pines.
We hired a car as had young children, but I walked via the golf course (mindful of guests teeing off) to the beach and praca easily for a 66 y.o. not so fit person.
Furnishings, fittings and decor are quality. Decorated with a mix of interesting artwork, objects and family touches. Kitchen great and opened to outdoor dining area. Everything (including free wifi and air con throughout house) worked A1.
Favourite nooks 1. The pool (late afternoon shade on hot days!), curled up on very comfortable outdoor lounge step away from pool, admiring the garden foliage. -2. The dining area in garden patio off kitchen for family dinners at end of the day. 3. The balcony off master bed upstairs. Relax with a glass of whatever and enjoy aspect through pines to sea (not into a neighbour's villa!) 4. Living area - curl up with a book from the library and savour the light, sun and space for all to enjoy. 5. Roof terrace at sunset.
Photos do not do this villa justice. Host Betina has been excellent - genuinely warm, answered all my mundane questions, and prompt replies.
What more can I say. For our family (Australian/English) it was a "once in a lifetime holiday" at Vale de Lobo where the weather was sunny, very warm but not "too hot", beaches not overcrowded, and safe, scenic location.
The villa was all I hoped for and more. Thank you Betina for sharing it with us.
Lovely spacious villa
We are back from a lovely relaxing stay and didn't want to come home.
The villa inside is so much bigger than you expect and very comfortable. The outside space is slightly smaller than expected but beautifully kept and sufficient for the three of us.
There is everything you need from all kitchen items to towels. A local mini market is about a 10 minute walk, well priced and well stocked. There are also a Lidl and Aldi a short drive away as well as another large supermarket but we found it overpriced. The praca is about a 40 minute slow walk (it was warm!) via the main roads as we didnt find a short cut. It was lovely going for drinks or dinner and enjoying the music and relaxing. The resort bus seemed very popular and a great idea but my husband I like to get a walk in so preferred to walk.
We would highly recommend the villa
It is always a little worrying when booking a villa on the internet.... However, I was extremely happy with my choice. My wife and I, along with 4 daughters 18,17,15 and 8 stayed here recently and were very pleased with this villa - size, cleanliness, furniture, facilities, location, well maintained/decorated, quietness from street noise - all boxes ticked! During our 9 night stay we made use of all the lovely outside space (pool/patio to the front of the house, BBQ terrace to the rear and also the roof top terrace). I personally enjoyed just sitting on the balcony outside the Master bedroom, over looking the pool sipping G&Ts and star gazing. The villa is on a gated road so no public traffic cars or people passing by which adds to the privacy and quietness which I put very high on my wish list. I would say because of this luxury that a car is very useful. Even though not that far from the beach 20/25 min walk (which my wife and I did a couple of times early morning to stretch legs and purchase a coffee and cake!!), it is hot and teenagers moan whenever they can! Anyway, a car gives you a chance to explore the surroundings. The older girls did manage to walk down to the bars in the evening without complaint! We ate out a few times but also had some lovely BBQs in the villa. Beds were very comfy and I have to say that for me I always need air con and happily it all worked fine around the villa - so great nights sleep. Overall, wonderful villa - would love to stay here again. I felt like Betina and her family really did want us to enjoy our stay - a few nice touches - books, dvds, board games and playing cards and a little book which they have all added their comments on the restaurants they have been to. Thank you Betina and Family!!!
Amazing! We loved it!
We were just blown away by this villa, it was just beautiful and so tastefully decorated. So comfortable(even the beds!), we were actually quiet happy to lounge by the pool and not leave the villa. It was so spacious, and had everything we needed. The kids (12, 3 and 16 months) had an absolute ball. We could honestly live there forever. We used the circuit bus which was great. We walked some mornings up to the praca and got the circuit bus back when it was getting very hot. We didn't need to use the air conditioning as whatever way it was designed it was quiet cool on the inside which is great when you have 2 smallies. Also we were supplied with a proper wooden cot as opposed to a travel cot. There is nothing we could fault, the pictures on the website don't do it justice. We really had one of the best holidays ever and we can't wait to go back! Betina is so polite and easy to deal with.
Clean, modern, spacious accommodation in a quiet location (at the end of the road).
Several areas to relax, both shaded and unshaded. They capture where the sun is throughout the day.
Convenient location within Val de Lobo.
Good for all different age groups
Special interest holidays:
One of the largest tennis facilities in Portugal, it attracts national and international tennis fixtures, including an annual ATP Seniors Tour competition, the Vale do Lobo Grand Champions Caixa Geral de Depósitos, and the Portuguese Ladies´ Open. A gym, swimming pool, pro shop and two restaurants overlooking the courts complete the facilities.
3 miles of golden sand. 10 min walk from the villa. Vale do Lobo also offers a great choice of restaurants, award winning SPA and good night club/bar
The nearest airport is faro - 30 min drive. Taxi's are easy to book, and Vale to Lobo offers a very good car service, so if you want to stay in the area you wont necessarily need a car, but for full flexibility we suggest you rent a car from the airport.
10 min walk to the beach, 15 min drive to a town with a daily fish and vegetable market.
