Just 10 minutes from the sublime beaches of the Algarve coast, and only 5 minutes from the quaint village of Almancil, Villa Eloa is an incredible cosy villa that all the family will love!
You are welcomed by a magnificent living room which oozes style, comfort and elegance, with a soft design and plush furnishings. There’s a huge, comfortable sofa in front of the fireplace and TV, making an ideal spot for a little Rest and Relaxation. A set of double doors at either side of the sofa flood the room with a warm, natural glow. The kitchen is enormous! Providing a social space for plenty of chefs to get involved, with all the latest mod cons. A formal dining area, beside the living space and adjoining the kitchen in a fabulous open plan style, completes the interior social spaces – and there’s tons of beautiful spots outside for sharing special moments, too!
There are four uniquely styled and incredibly spacious bedrooms, with three rooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor, and the final, ensuite bedroom on the first floor. All four rooms have air-conditioning and modern, refined décor. The three accompanying bathrooms are delightful, with large double-showers, or vast bathtubs to relax in. The ensuite double room on the first-floor is delightfully decorated in light grey and light yellow and enjoys a fabulous balcony with a magnificent view! The blue double room enjoys access to the entrance terrace with views over the sumptuous garden and swimming pool and shares its bathroom with the pink double room. Finally, the yellow room, with two single beds, has access to the family bathroom, with both a shower and bathtub.
The garden is simply wonderful. All along the veranda you’ll find sofas, chairs and loungers for socialising, relaxing and enjoying the famously fab climate of the Algarve! Nip down the fantastic set of steps to your huge 10 by 5-meter private pool, offering fun for all the group and a much-needed respite from the midday heat. There’s a barbeque and alfresco dining, for glamorous evenings in. Get your tan on in one of the many loungers throughout the garden!
Just over 20 minutes to Faro, and only 12 minutes to the beach at Vale do Lobo, you’ll find all the entertainment and action you could wish for at your fingertips! 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 over 3km 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’.
