The Algarve region

The Algarve is a historic and fascinating region. Algarve is from the Moorish Arabic word Al Gharb (the west) - remnants of the Moorish occupation can be seen in nearby Loule or Faro. The climate is the attraction for most people as we enjoy more than 300 days of sunshine a year - even when it rains it is warm and the rain does not last for days as it does in northern Europe. For that reason the Algarve is a haven for sports enthusiasts, walkers and great for a beach holiday - even out of season when the beaches are empty but our fabulous beach restaurants and still up and running for business so you get even better service !


Almancil is the hub of the "golden triangle" the exclusive area of Vale do Lobo/Quinta do Lago with the"peak" of the triangle being Almancil. Vale Formoso is a pretty typically Portuguese area within Almancil - it is particularly handy to walk to shops, bars and cafes as well as small local supermarkets. The beach is just 5 minutes by car as are the water slide park, horse riding etc. and activities of interest for children. In the summer we have lots of outdoor music events and "events" to keep everybody happy

"The Good, the bad and the Ugly."

The Good-The agent Barbara was first class, and very helpful when there was a question or problem. The Maid was brilliant, nothing too much trouble and went beyond her job description. The Villa was… More

Hello and thank you for your review and your very complimenary remarks
about me, the house, and the service you received. I´m sorry the pool was
"murky" - you did not tell us - a quick phone call and we could have put this right the same day. As to the location, we had correspondence about this and I believe you know the area well. Barking dogs ? Well, outside the major resorts in Portugal, there is always a chance the neighbours will keep dogs - we are sorry to hear you were disturbed - out of our conrol I´m afraid. We have not had a complaint of this nature before but we hope overall, your experience was good and you will return to the Algarve and contact us again for other options. Kind regards Barbara

"Beautiful property, everything you could ask for a family holiday"

This is a beautiful, private, walled property which offers all the amenities for a group holiday. We travelled with 5 adults, and 3 older children - aged 15 - 20.

The outdoor space is wonderful, with the pool being the focal point for the daytime. The pool is very clean and well kept, with the pool guy attending regularly. At night time, if dining in, there is a fantastic built in BBQ and porch where we ate several times, and also a front porch in front of the pool where we ate lunch or had a few drinks later on at night.

The maid service was wonderful - nothing was too much trouble for her. She was there every day.

Within walking distance there is a village with several bars and restaurants (the nearest bar - about 100m from the villa we found our cheapest "pint" - 1.60 euro's). There are several supermarkets near the property. We used the one on the main street, which wasn't the largest, but provided everything we needed. We would walk down and taxi back - less than 5 euro's.

We taxi'd to the beach and also to the beautiful Marina town of Villamoura. The return cost for a minibus for 8 passengers was around 30 euro's for both trips.

We didn't find it necessary to hire a car, as we just wanted a relaxing holiday, and we could do everything we needed to by taxi.

Overall a wonderful place to have a relaxing holiday in the sun.

Only downside was no WiFi access.
