We have stayed in this villa on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The newly tiled area around the pool is an added bonus. The villa is very private and always kept clean and to a high standard, Maria and her partner are wonderful people. We had a lovely time and hopefully will return again. Well done.

Very nice location in a quiet cul de sac. Villa has been refurbished to a very high standard and is very confortable. Garden under construction at the moment but has no great impact on sitting out in this very private garden by the pool or having a bbq in the evening, sun goes down at 8.30 approx. Well done to Maria and Tony they were exccllent and very attentive to all our needs.

Well appointed villa, great pool and lovely secluded garden which allows all day sunbathing. Located in a quiet cul de sac but just 200 yards from the tennis club and 15 mins walk from the beach and the Praca with their restaurants. For a quiet night in there is satellite access to U.K. TV but wifi range in and around the villa is extremely limited. The villa has air con but on a cautionary note we were unaware of an expensive surcharge despite asking on booking. Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to a family with kids of all ages or a couple with older relatives, children or friends.

We arrived in the middle of the night, but subtle lighting was on to welcome us as well as bottled water and milk for a cup of tea. We were surprised at the size of the villa. It is so large and airy with homely touches. The kitchen is well equipped, the lounge is comfortable and spacious, the master bedroom is huge with the most comfortable bed in the word! There's a large irrigated garden and good sized swimming pool. The drawers had a supply if matches, candles, playing cards, plug adaptors etc plus extra table linen and cloths. We have had such a fun filled holiday in the early heatwave. Air conditioning was a must and extra to the cost as was the wifi. Maria our villa manager was attentive and helpful - Thank you. We were sorry to leave.

Wij verbleven hier een ganse week.Vanaf de aankomst was alles perfect . De villa zeer uitnodigend , mooie tuin en sympathieke inrichting . Alles in perfecte staat . Zeer rustig gelegen met zwembad . De eigenaar Maria ontving ons met veel charme en gastvrijheid . De villa heeft 3 slaapkamers en 3 badkamers . Ideaal voor 6 personen . Gelegen in het hartje van Vale do Lobo . Een plaats om terug te komen

Not surprising that this villa is probably the most often booked villa in V do L.....3 bedrooms all with private bathrooms, (beds with high quality mattresses) good kitchen and living area.......this is the end villa on a row of villas, and surely the best of them all, with a lovely garden, laid out by a gardener with exquisite taste...garden surrounded by forest ...and a good pool. To top it off - the price is most reasonable compared to other properties which seem excessively priced for similar villas. The tennis club is about 4 minutes walk away, the beach about 15 minutes walking. You will be hard pressed to find something to complain about......except perhaps for the jays, which love to join you at mealtimes. Great villa, reasonably priced - perfect holiday rental....thank you.

The villa was very well presented with ample space and excellent facilities, a lovely garden with large dip pool made it a very enjoyable and relaxing place to stay. Only downside without a car was the distance from the nearest supermarket which was approximately 2km away. Maria and the team were very helpful and sorted out any issues we had promptly and without any fuss.

We have been visiting VDL for 15+ years and this was undoubtedly the best villa we have stayed in. It is a good sized 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa, with plenty of living space. The real gem however is the garden, which by local standards is huge. Consequently the pool is larger and better than the normal dip pool, and you get the sun from dawn till dusk. 10 minutes from the Praca? No. Not unless you are Usain Bolt. 20-25 minutes on foot. 5 minutes by car. It is, however, 2 minutes from the tennis club. Tennis, gym, bigger pool. This was an excellent find and well managed by Maria, her husband and colleague. Any problems immediately sorted. Loved it.

Beautiful quiet location but close to everything - peaceful and relaxing. Maria Pedro who looks after it was simply charming. We will book again. Best thing probably was the main bedroom which, when you woke up in the morning, had beautiful views that you could see from the bed. Also the birds in the garden were special (and I mean the feathered kind!!). Really nothing to say negative... loved every minute we were there.
