Villa Location
Villa Penrose lies in the resort of Vale do Lobo, North West of Quinta do Lago, an excellent location in an area of pinewoods and citrus groves. It is away from the hustle and bustle in a countryside location, yet less than a 5 minute drive from the shops, restaurants, sandy beaches and golf courses in these nearby resorts. The nearby town of Almancil, with a selection of shops and restaurants is also just 10 minutes' drive away. Our Villa Pinhal Santo is on the same lane.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, with chic fashion shops and a choice of restaurants, are a 5 minute drive away. Or take a trip inland to Loule and its colourful traditional market. It's open every Saturday so why not pick up a souvenir to take home?

Bars and restaurants

There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the area, ranging from local Portuguese dishes to quality international cuisine, plus several excellent beach bars. Both Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago have a selection of high end restaurants. Further afield is the international yacht marina of Vilamoura, with a range of restaurants and bars.


The nearest beach is Garrao, just 5 minutes' walk away, where you can enjoy water sports or simply just relax. This is a small part of the superb sands that stretch for miles along the coast here. Vale do Lobo Beach is less than 10 minutes' drive away, lined with pinewoods and wooden thatched sunshades. Here you will also find water sports, lifeguards and beach bars.

Family fun

For those feeling active, tennis centres, horse-riding, and a nature reserve are all within a 10 minute drive from the villa. A mini golf course can be found in Vilamoura, 15 minutes' drive away. Alternatively, the Slide & Splash waterpark is a 40 minute drive away, with plenty of slides and flumes to keep the whole family entertained.

Places of interest

Faro's historic old town is worth a visit if you fancy wandering around its narrow, cobbled streets, interesting shops and restaurants. To delve a little deeper into the history perhaps visit the Archaeological museum, the Cathedral, Nossa Sra do Carmo Church, and the medieval walls.


Golf is at the heart of Vale do Lobo with 2 glorious, 18-hole championship courses. Choose between the challenging Royal or the scenic Ocean course. Golfers don't forget your clubs!


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Pinetrees Horse Riding Centre
Located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, Pinetrees Riding Centre provides a high standard of riding tuition, taught by qualified teachers. Lessons are available for beginners as well as experienced riders with ponies for very young children.

Activities on offer include one to one and group sessions, nature walks and treks. The centre welcomes disabled riders with some experience and with medical and (under 18s) parental approval. Riding equipment such as boots, hats and jodhpurs are provided. (Tel. 289 394 369/489)

Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.

Vale de Lobo Royal Course:

Situated 8 kilometres from Vilamoura and open all year round, the Almancil Go Karting circuit is a replica of the Jacarepagua Formula 1 circuit in Brazil. Try a 160cc or 200cc Go Kart or lift the pace with a 400cc bi-motor model. (Tel. 289 399 899)

Karen Findlayson, 22-Aug-2013

We had a lovey week at Villa Penrose. Pool was a great size and there was plenty of grass to play ball games. All bedrooms had air conditioning and were a good size, the kitchen was very well equipped, the living area was huge and very comfortable. Great location too, a short drive from Val de Lobo and within 5 min drive of big supermarkets and loads of restaurants nearby to drive to. Close to Aqua Show, which was fun. Would recommend this villa without hesitation.
