Perks for the Parents

This cool and contemporary 5-bedroom villa, a few minutes’ walk from the shops, restaurants and golf course of beach resort Quinta do Lago, has a private pool and tranquil gardens. It sleeps up to 12 + 2. The villa is tucked away in its own secluded gardens, yet restaurants, shops and nightlife are within easy reach. Need to work while away? There’s super fast WiFi throughout the villa and 2 dedicated work areas in the snug and in a queensize bedroom. Extra luxuries such as chef, personal trainer or a private yacht rental can be arranged on request. The kitchen is a lovely open space with everything you need to cook some of the area’s famous seafood. Otherwise, wander into town to enjoy fresh, local cuisine with kid-friendly options.

Why Kids Love it

Older kids will enjoy the lovely bedroom with 2 good size single / twin beds – we love the cushions saying ‘You are magical’. They will have their own bathroom with a walk-in shower too. The villa is 100 meters’ walk to a playground, supermarket and ice-cream and a 5-minute drive to the kid-friendly beaches with soft sand and shallow waters. Some of the beaches have showers and changing rooms. There is a tennis camp available in the summer. Out and about, there’s plenty to do from watersports (kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing and waterskiing) to mini-golf, theme parks and adventure parks such as Zoomarine with water slides, wave pools and animal shows.

Things to Know

There is plenty of car parking space at the property. Please note that there are several balconies including an ungated drop at the top of the stairs that makes this villa unsuitable for those with children under 8. There is no bath tub at the property. The villa has cable TV with English and international channels. 2 hours of daily cleaning included Monday to Saturday, with no cleaning on Sunday. Bath and beach towels and bedding are supplied. This villa would be particularly suitable for people with reduced mobility as 4 of the bedroom suites are located on the first / ground floor, although there are a few sets of small interior steps on the first/ ground floor. There is 24 hour/day security around the resort complex.

Style Notes

Cosmopolitan chic. You can’t help but feel cheerful in this light and bright renovated villa with large open living spaces and picture windows to the gardens. The double height living room is impressive with a sweeping staircase, large palms in pots dotted around and a large blue sectional to cozy up in front of an open fire or TV. There’s also the snug (perfect for kids) with more sofas and a TV and fireplace. Wooden beams cross the ceiling and floor are tiled or wood and strewn with understated elegant rugs. The primary suite has anMykonos vibe with white and blue linens on a four-poster frame and its own sofa and balcony for morning coffee or late night cocktails. We love the light-filled white kitchen with vintage Portuguese tiles on the breakfast bar, the unusual circular pool, and the contemporary interior.
