Just 3km from the beach, Casa Manuela is the perfect villa for a social occasion, with delightfully open-plan spaces and a fabulous, exotic garden!
You’re welcomed with a warm embrace by the sublime entrance hall – with classical pillars and a grand double-door entrance, you will feel totally at ease from the moment you arrive! The main living areas are all adjoined beautifully to create an open, sociable space perfect for fluid conversations, allowing laughter to ring through the living areas, be it the vast lounge, the dining area or the huge, modern kitchen. Marble flooring throughout adds a classical charm to the villa, while vintage and traditional furnishing reinforces this timeless beauty.
There are three large sofas around the TV complete with UK channels, with air-conditioning to keep you cool and Wi-Fi to keep you connected. Beside the lounge is a formal dining area, and to the other side is the large kitchen, perfect for keeping the group together.
There are five stylish bedrooms, each with a unique design but all so very comfortable! There are two double rooms and two twin rooms all on this ground floor. One of each room enjoys an en-suite bathroom with a large shower, while the other two rooms share a fabulous family bathroom. The final double bedroom is in the annexe, adding a little extra privacy and space, and also has a private bathroom. All four bathrooms feature elegant designs and a large walk-in shower.
Out in your wonderful garden, surrounded by fragrant, mature trees, you’ll find the vast swimming pool which enjoys the sunshine all day long – giving you the perfect spot for a little sunbathing, relaxing and chatting. Under the veranda you’ll also find a large, charcoal BBQ surrounded by alfresco dining, so you can make the most of the brilliant climate! All around the pool there are comfortable sun-loungers where you can sit back and relax, and if you’re travelling with young children, even keep an eye on them frolicking in the pool or on the expansive lawn!
At just 6 minutes from the beach and only 25 minutes to Faro, you’re perfectly located to enjoy the famous beach lifestyle of Portugal, and the thriving town life too! While you’re very near to the action of the Vale do Lobo resort, the location remains calm and quiet, making it ideal for a little outdoor activity, be that a peaceful stroll or even a bike ride. We recommend hiring bikes nearby and taking a scenic trip around the neighbourhood, including to the world-famous golf courses just a few hundred metres away.
Once an expanse of pine forests and empty beaches, Vale de Lobo has been transformed into the height of luxury over the last 50 years. The first of the three corners of what is now Algarve's Golden Triangle, Vale do Lobo was among the first tourist resorts ever to be built in Portugal, and indeed is the site of the first five-star hotel in the Algarve!
Of course, with two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean, Vale de Lobo is the dream destination for any aspiring golfer. So fantastic are the facilities, the resort hosted the Portuguese Open in 2002 and 2003! Indeed, across the country of Portugal, there are 14 of the world’s top 100 best golf courses, making it the perfect destination for those who enjoy a day out on the course.
Outside of golf, the Algarve is an excellent destination for other hobbyists. With a vast coastline that meets the powerful Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is a true paradise for the keen surfer, or indeed even those looking to try if for the first time, with plenty of surfing schools all along the calmer sections of the coast. And even for those less enamoured with surfing, the beaches of Portugal are well worth a visit for their beautifully clear waters.
The Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, is famous for its picturesque scenes of vast blue skies casting a warming glow on the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, with untouched bays framed by jagged Limestone rocks at every turn. While the southern coast caters to every need of its visitors, to the West and the rugged interior the land remains largely untouched, with less development and endless intersecting of historic villages, hilltop castles and beautiful churches.
Portugal itself is a small, fascinating country at the most Western point of mainland Europe. The capital, Lisbon, is known for its lively nightlife, with endless bars and clubs full of fun-loving locals and tourists alike, but also has plenty of fascinating history (check out Belém, jam-packed with monuments!) and undulating terrain, famously termed the ‘city of the seven hills’.
