Renovated in 2018, Villa Inez is perfectly located for an active group that likes to be in the thick of it, just a short walk to the world-famous beach and golfing opportunities of Vale do Lobo as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.
This delightful renovated townhouse is perfect for small groups of friends or family seeking a little extra charm and luxury during their Portuguese trip. The hugely spacious living room includes two supremely comfortable sofas as well as a Lazer TV with UK & International programmes. There is free WiFi and air-conditioning throughout the villa. With such a recent renovation, the decor is beautifully contemporary, with supremely comfortable sofas among Scandinavian-inspired colours and textures. A wonderful wooden dining table for six sits at the near side of the room. From the living room there are large sliding doors to the terrace, through which plenty of sunlight and a light breeze travels. The kitchen is incredibly bright and modern, with plenty of surface space for all to get involved in preparing a lovely meal or two.
There are three wonderful bedrooms, each completed with the utmost care and attention to detail, with striking decor, practical furnishings and very high-quality furniture. There is a double and a twin room on the ground floor, and the master-bedroom on the first-floor. From the master bedroom there is a wondrous sun terrace, complete with several sun loungers where you can gather the whole group for an evening tipple, or simply sip your morning coffee in the fresh air. All three bathrooms are spacious, modern and pristine.
In the beautiful garden there is a south-east facing, heated private pool, ensuring you get the sun all-year round, and are lovely and toasty no matter the time of day! There are many sun loungers dispersed around the pool, giving you the difficult choice of setting up by the pool or on your private roof terrace! With a large set of table and chairs and a barbeque, this makes for a fantastic spot for an alfresco meal!
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. We recommend hiring bikes 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 Portgual 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 the 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. The Algarviana hiking trail is an excellent day out for an active group.
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 Belem, jam-packed with monuments!) and undulating terrain, famously termed the ‘city of the seven hills'. From Lisbon, it is very quick to travel by the domestic high-speed train line to the city of Loule, which will connect you fairly quickly to Villa Amara.
