Villa
Luxury 3 bed villa (sleeps 6-8) with Private Heated Pool in the heart of Vale do Lobo. Situated away from the road with views over the tennis club and it's extensive grounds. Just renovated, the villa is our second home and therefore very well furnished and fully equipped, not like the usual rental villas! We have completely re-newed everything from the bathrooms and kitchen, to the beds and Sky TV system The price includes all the items that are usually extras like heating and air-conditioning, Wifi Internet, travel cot and high chair. Pool heating to 30 degrees C (85f) is £175 if required. Please note that if there are more than 6 guests the extra 2 beds make the bedrooms very cosy and suit children better than adults.

Beautiful villa. Cannot really think of anything negative to say. Owner and agent both very helpful and efficient. Villa lovely and clean. Rooms good size. Location great. Beautiful pool. Parking spaces only a few metres away and great views over the tennis courts. Lovely balcony to the master bedroom. Some very good restaurants - we especially liked one called Don Camilla - just a 10 minute drive from the Villa. Great little centre (Praca) with plenty happening in the evening. Some good bars with lovely views. Would I recommend? Absolutely!!!! We look forward to going again in the not too distant future.

Our third visit and still loved our time here just as much as previous visits . The villa is absolutely beautiful with everything you could need and it’s just so peaceful with a lovely outlook It’s really clean and very well furnished .. lots of outdoor furniture too. Would recommend a car to get around but we also enjoyed many days just relaxing by the pool. The roof terrace is a must for sun worshippers with lovely views of the tennis courts Charles the owner and his management company are extremely helpful and accommodating .. so quick to respond if needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lovely villa and hope to visit again soon with my family

We spent a week in the villa in August and had a wonderful stay. The villa was comfortable, spacious and yet had a cosy feel. The terrace upstairs is wonderfully private for tanning and the outside area had an undercover eating space and pool, with loungers for those like me who enjoy a little shade from the sun. The villa was clean and bright and the owners were very helpful and charming. We will be back!!

Been booking Villas now for 12 years through holiday lettings, I would class this property as a terraced house as in a row of 5, when we arrived ants where in the home but the owners agent acted swiftly to sort the problem. The reason I highlight terraced house is that we felt very overlooked from the back of the house neighbours on the left could see right into where we was laying, which at time felt very intrusive, they also lit a fire with fern cones and twigs for BBQ our property filled with smoke it was horrid and ruined a whole evening for us. Inside the property is lovely and comfortable maids cleaning was a bonus , we all slept well although a king bed in the master in place of singles would have been nice being married I do like to sleep next to with my husband. The trees are so big at the rear, we had to clean to pool out lots during the day, once when out for the morning i'm sure a mini hurricane must have hit as the pool was full of twigs due to no cover. The outside area is nice but not much Sun it moves around downstairs best place for tanning was the first floor terrace just perfect all day. Parking was never an issue even though only one space per house and a permanent car taking up one of theses with a cover over it. You will need a car as shops is around 30 min walk away Also deep deep pockets Vale do lobo is not cheap, nothing for kids pool tables etc Over all we had a good trip but wouldn't go back

Loved this place. It was perfect for two couples to share and still have plenty of space and privacy. Well stocked villa with everything you need. Fly screens were welcome to keep the mozzies outside. Spotlessly clean. Overlooking the tennis courts so plenty of entertainment during the day. Felt safe and secure at this villa. Comfy beds and nice bathrooms. Air con throughout and lots of space. The pool was a little on the small side but was enough room for 4 people to take the occasional dip. Comfy sun loungers with pads around the pool and on the terrace. This place has everything you could need and is in such a lovely location.

We stayed at the start of September with my parents and our two toddlers 3 and 16 months and had the best first family holiday. The set up is great as meant mum and dad could escape upstairs when they needed to and we were close to the children. The pool is a great size and depth for the children and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. The villa has everything you need and is close to all you need. We didn't travel too far with two little ones but the market in Loule was great and the beach and Quinta not too far in the car. We all have had a great time and definitely recommend. We hope to be back in Vale do Lobo next year.

From the moment we booked the villa the owners were attentive and accommodating.It is a lovely villa and more like a home than the usual holiday. The pool and the internet/cable tv etc kept the children occupied so that we didn’t hear any of the usual chants of, ‘I’m bored’! We shall come again. Thanks very much

Just back from a great holiday. Stayed in Villa Carlos which was ideal for my husband and I and my daughter and her husband and 18 month old grandson. The villa is beautiful , very spacious and the layout allows for everyone to have their own space. It is well equipped and has all the mod cons. The very generous outdoor space on ground level and upper level is well furnished. The pool is a good size. The villa enjoys a great location overlooking the tennis courts and is a short walk to both the golf club and bars and restaurants in the resort. The owner ensured we had comprehensive instructions for all appliances, tvs etc. A fab villa which I will recommend to family and friends.
