Villa in Almancil, Quinta do Lago/Vale do Lobo, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location Close To Beach With Easy Access To Golf, Tennis And Spa Facilities
Why David Atkinson chose Vale do Garrão
We have owned a property in the Vale do Lobo resort for many years and purchased our current villa 'off plan' in exchange for our previous property. We chose Vale do Lobo because of the ease of access from the airport, the luxurious environment and the excellent facilities, particularly the golf courses and restaurants which we use on a regular basis. There is also a large ex-patriot community and we have made some good friends in the area.
What makes this Villa unique
Vale do Lobo is well placed to get the most of everything the Algarve has to offer. If you want to play golf or tennis in a relaxing environment then this is the place for you. It is well worth the experience of playing two of Europe's most spectacular golf courses. Besides the Royal and Ocean golf courses at Vale do Lobo, there are a number of other top quality golf courses within a 15 minute drive, namely: San Lorenzo Quinta do Lago North & South Llaranjal Pinheiros Altos Vila Sol and then 4 courses at Villamoura (20 minutes drive). It is a Golfer`s paradise! There are plenty of places to eat in the resort and some excellent restaurants to suit all tastes in the surrounding area. If you don't want to go out, the Ken Lo Chinese Restaurant in the Tennis centre across the road does an excellent take away service. The beaches at Vale do Lobo are superb and there are several you can get to within a ten to fifteen minute walk. If you don't want to walk that far for a swim, there is a pool in the Tennis Centre, located directly opposite to the villa.

Beautiful villa for a relaxing holiday
I can’t recommend this villa enough we went with 2 other couples for a relaxing holiday and this place totally ticked all the boxes. The villa was beautifully decorated with a large open plan living space. The bedrooms are all great sizes and had everything you’d need.
The beach and restaurants were about a 10 minute walk and lots of choices.
The only thing I would mention is the shop is quite a walk so would recommend getting an Uber (only €3 each way)
Overall would definitely recommend this villa and would love to return.
The villa was wonderful! The quality of the interior is excellent.
We have rented numerous properties in a number of countries and this villa is up there with the best. It is in an ideal position within the Val De Lobo complex, near to the beach ,tennis academy and other facilities.
We have tried to book for 2019 but unfortunately it is not available for our dates. We shall try again for 2020!
Beautiful villa - very relaxing break
This lovely villa is obviously someone's much loved second home. The location was excellent - just across the road from the tennis academy. There is a great small pool at the villa but if you want a more serious swim you can pay €5 for a day at the tennis academy pool. This can be redeemed against food & drink there. Very peaceful & the villa is tastefully decorated & light and airy throughout. South facing so sun on the terrace all day long. We would love to return.
Beautifully spacious villa, perfectly located with sun on the veranda no matter the time of day!
The villa is perfect size, great open space comprising the living and dining area. Three great sized bedrooms, with the main bed having a balcony which I loved and 3 magnificent bathrooms. Only a 12 minutes walk to the beach which is great.
Excellent, clean, well maintained luxurious villa
My wife, son, daughter-in-law, grandaughter and I stayed here for a week and had a marvellous time. The villa was ideal, quiet, in a good location and well furnished throughout. Everything worked as it should including wi-fi and we have absolutely no criticism of anything. The resort itself is really well run with a great choice of restaurants and bars. The two golf courses are superb although they can be very busy so you need to book early - we also got discounts on the golf since we were classed as residents. It's a good 15 maybe 20 minutes to walk to the beach/restaurant area and it is up and down some hills so for some people a car would be essential instead of walking. Overall, I would highly recommend this villa and the very helpful owner Yvonne.
