About Gundela K. Nitschke
Hello, I am Gundela, having been retired along with my husband; we live in the south-west of Germany. I do painting, like writing and enjoy gardening. Our two grown-up children live across Europe, so we like to come together in the Vivenda da Liberdade at the sunny Algarve. From the very beginning we fell in love with the area of the Western Algarve more than 20 years ago. The perfect climate, kind local people and unspoiled nature especially of the Lagos area appealed to us. We realised our dream and were lucky to find after an extensive search this attractively located spot near Lagos offering the privacy of 55.000 sqm/14 acres. Benefiting from the fact that our son is an architect we built this villa in 2003, designed to elegant Mediterranean layout.
Gundela K. Nitschke purchased this Villa in 2003

Fantastic villa and delightful owners
We loved our stay at Vivenda da Liberdade. Gundela is a wonderfully organised and efficient owner. All our dealings with her before our stay, including payment arrangements, were professional and well organised. There is a great set of welcome notes and directions to the villa. Afterwards, our deposit was returned very promptly.
The villa itself is located in a great rural location, well away from the rather samey villas nearer Lagos or Praia da Luz. It is quite near Lagos Zoo and so sometimes you hear some funny noises, but it is never intrusive!
There are local shops nearby, but it is Lagos for supermarkets.
The accommodation is well appointed with all mod cons including very good wifi for my teenagers. The main living space is great with lots of space. The kitchen particularly has everything you could ever need - great as there are so many outdoor eating options.
The rooms were all comfortable and clean, the bathrooms plenty for the size of the villa.
Outside the grounds are extensive and, near the villa and pool, beautifully tended. The pool itself is a good size for swimming and mucking about with kids. We spent a lot of time in there!
Overall it was a great, relaxing stay; and from the organiser's perspective, made very easy by Gundela's prompt and kind attention.
Overall, thoroughly recommended!
Beautiful villa to escape from the world
We spent a wonderful holiday time in this spacious and perfectly organised villa in the middle of nowhere. Our children were having lots of fun in the pool and in the garden.
We were impressed with the house and its equipment suited to the needs of every family.
We liked the ambience of the villa with many paintings and books emphasised by cosy lighting in the evening. The large area surrounding the house gave us the great feeling of privacy. The silence around us could be disturbed just by the strong Portuguese wind or by animals in the nearby zoo.
The house and the garden were perfectly clean. The spacious kitchen and its equipment was encouraging us to prepare meals. Although the villa is not located at the sea-side, nice beaches near Lagos and Luz are in the distance of 10 minutes drive and the fantastic surfers' beaches of the Vincentian coast - less than half an hour away.
The Villa recommended for those who appreciate silence, nature and happy time with their family.
Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit auf diesem atemberaubenden Anwesen!
Das Gebäude und der Garten sind wunderschön und geschmackvoll angelegt. Der Blick von der Terrasse auf den Garten mit Pool und dem weiteren Außengelände ist wunderschön. Der beheizte Pool lässt keine Wünsche offen.
Auch im Inneren des Hauses ist einfach alles da, was man benötigt und noch mehr.
Die Kommunikation mit Frau Nitschke war sehr angenehm! In Portugal wurden wir sehr freundlich empfangen und haben auch hier die unkomplizierte Kommunikation mit der Betreuung vor Ort und das sehr unauffällige Hauskeeping sehr geschätzt.
Wir danken für eine unvergessliche Zeit und kommen sehr gerne wieder!
Ruhiger und sehr gepflegter Rückzugsort.
Großzügig und viel Platz für vier Personen.
Sehr persönliche Atmosphäre.
Traumvilla mit wunderschönem Garten
es hat alles gestimmt. Sehr gute Kommunikation mit den Vermietern. Das Haus war in einem erstklassigen Zustand und der Empfang sowie der Service waren hervorragend. Alles war wie im Vorfeld beschrieben. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
Die Lage, Terrasse und der Pool sind einfach einmalig. Besonders ist der liebevoll angelegte Garten hervorzuheben.Guter Ausgangspunkt für diverse Touren, schnell an der Westküste. Gutes Restaurant ist fußläufig zu erreichen.
Viele Strände und einsame Buchten ganz in Nähe. Wir werden die Vivenda in sehr guter Erinnerung behalten.
Vivenda is a fantastic place where relaxing
Vivenda is a very comfortable and well-equipped and furnished villa located close to a very pictoresque village, 11 km far from Lagos. Everything is tidy and clean thanks to the personnel at service. The villa is at the centre of a wide park made of typical Portuguese vegetation and this assure you a very discreet and silent stay. The pool is very nice. In my opinion spending your vacation at Vivenda is highly recommended
2 km outside of the small village of Barão de São João near Lagos/Western Algarve the 5.5 hectares large estate is situated in partly even, partly hilly country with charming old cork trees. This area “Lagoa da Rosa” with small houses scattered over the land is named after the rockrose flowering pink and white in spring. The location out in the country is quiet and marvellous, but just a short ride of 10 minutes to Lagos and to long sandy beaches.
Other Activities: boat tours
Golf: Palmares golf club (15 minutes drive) well situated with beautiful views out over the Bay of Lagos is a real treat for every golfer. Quinta da Boavista golf club (10 minutes drive) on the outskirts of Lagos fulfils the expectations of beginning and advanced golfers. Parque da Floresta golf club (15 minutes drive) the most westerly of the Algarve courses is situated in natural, hilly country with cistus bushes near the nature reserve “Costa Vicentina”.
