Villa Location
Villa Pinhal Santo has a pleasant countryside location, off a track which leads from the road between the fashionable resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo. There are restaurants to suit all tastes in the surrounding area from simple, Portuguese to a la carte cuisine. Praia do Garrao Beach is just 5 minutes' drive away - with plenty more on offer within easy reach. Golfers are well catered for too!

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Less than a 5 minutes' drive are the Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta shopping centres, with stylish fashion shops and boutiques with handmade clothing and jewellery. 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? Only a 20 minutes drive away.

Bars and restaurants

There are several dining options to tickle your taste buds within driving distance, or a further few around 20 minutes on foot. These range from simple Portuguese cuisine to quality international dishes, as well as several excellent beach bars for lunch time snacks. Further afield is the international yacht marina of Vilamoura, with a range of restaurants and bars - with lovely scenic views, and also where you can dance your night away.


The nearest beach is Garrao, just 5 minutes' walk away, where you can enjoy water sports or simply relax. This is just part of the superb sands that stretch for miles along the coast here. In the west side of this beach you will be able to find a lagoon known as Lagoa das Dunas Douradas.

Family fun

There is a tennis centre, horse-riding and a nature reserve all within 5 minutes' drive. Or, further on is the go-kart track and a waterpark, both no more than 15 minutes by car - so plenty to keep the 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.


There are top quality golf courses nearby including the Vale do Lobo Royal and Vale do Lobo Ocean courses where you can perfect your swing! These are just 2 of the golf courses the Algarve has to offer.


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:

Vale do Lobo Tennis Centre

The courts are overlooked by the centre’s clubhouse which includes a bar, a shop and satellite TV, where you can relax after a game or join one of the regular social events.
Ria Formosa Nature Park
This vast protected area covers some 71 square miles. It was established to preserve the natural resources on which the local population depend for most of their traditional activities such as fish and shellfish farming, traditional fishing and salt production.

Amongst other natural attractions, the nature park is home to wetlands, indigenous fauna and flora and migratory species.

Paul Pheby, 07-Apr-2016

The space was fabulous, the pool area and barbecue area were top notch. Gardens and location made for a relaxing week and all 10 occupants enjoyed the week immensely. All things considered I regarded the villa as fantastic value for money and would use it again without hesitation for large party holidays. Keep up the good work and great value.

The villa is of a fantastic size and would comfortably sleep 10/12 people. The pool and grounds it is set in are fantastic. Would say that a car is definately needed. We used taxi's all week and they were very good and reliable. Overall the week was lovely.

We absolutely loved the villa! It was so large and spacious, 8 of us rattled round in it. We all had our own bathroom, which was lovely. The pool area and barbeque was amazing, with gorgeous views down the hillside. The heating of the pool was great too, we even swam first thing in the morning. Wonderfull holiday, thank you!
