Located in the peaceful area of Areeiro, a short distance from from both Loulé and Almancil as well as neighbouring resort towns of Quinta Do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura, 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 short ride away! Villa Elmen is located just 2.5km from the nearest supermarket, 8km from the nearest beach in Vale Do Lobo, and 16km from the city of Faro.

Once an expanse of pine forests and empty beaches, Vale de Lobo and Quinta Do Lago have been transformed into the height of luxury over the last 50 years. With two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean, Vale de Lobo is the dream destination for any aspiring golfer.

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’.

Loulé is the ideal town in the Algarve to explore for a short trip. In this historically interesting town, you can discover a real taste of Portuguese culture. The town has a beautiful centre and a magnificent market hall. The narrow streets take you to important churches, and you can discover the ruins of a 13th-century castle.

Although the town of Loulé is not located directly at sea, its municipality does include some beautiful beaches. The beaches of Loulé are known for their exclusivity, like Praia da Quinta do Lago or Praia da Quarteira.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that. There’s actually a load of fascinating culture and history, superb cuisine and enthralling adventures to be had, though we’d be the first to admit that the beaches are pretty special too, with lots of sand, spectacle and wonderfully clean water.

But while you’re enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Algarve, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we’ve put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

  • Lovely welcome and great place

    on 06/05/2023

    Good welcome and communication. Property is excellent.
    My only feedback sp far, is that the address is tricky to find!

  • Amazing house

    on 24/08/2021

    An amazing house, the photos do not do it justice. The thoughtful touches and added items were great and really added to a fantastic stay.

  • Perfect house

    on 19/07/2020

    Perfect house for several people. Has everything we need and is spacious. Private areas and super garage. Easy and quick communication. Kitchen is great for cooking, and there is a nice breakfast area by the pool

  • Perfect location

    on 10/06/2020

    Perfect location for 4 persons and more. Everything was clean and the pool was stunning, the only negative think was the low water pressure and the dogs from the neighbor.

  • Lovely house

    on 07/05/2019

    The house is lovely with a good selection of kitchen utilities. The bedrooms are comfortable, spacious and en-suites are a good size. There is a good restaurant within 10 minutes walk. The only down side is that it is 30 minutes away from the nice beaches and difficult to park a car essential.

  • Beautifully decorated

    on 01/09/2018

    Villa Elmen is situated about 20 minuets from Faro airport, between the lovely traditional town of Loule and Almancil, Almancil is literally within nipping distance and is the place to find your closest supermarkets etc. We wanted a three bedroom property where all the bedrooms were nice and the villa really delivers on this, all bedrooms are ensuite, all are spacious, perfect for a group of six adults where everyone wants good facilities. The property is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped, fully air conditioned and with all the comforts of home. Outside the high standards continue, great pool which is very well maintained, very comfortable soft seating area and excellent barbecue which we used most evenings. There is excellent parking for your hire car, either on the gated drivewayin the garage which is under the property. I would say this is a property best enjoyed with a car, we seemed to be handy for everything we wanted to do, beach, marina, Faro old town and the driving was straightforward, parking was never a problem and we could have explored further afield should we have been there for a longer stay. There are a couple of lovely looking restaurants within walking distance, we didn’t try them as we chose to have lunches out and evenings by the pool. The property is looked after by an excellent management company, it’s them you deal with for the booking and I would rate them first class, they are professional and helpful and work to very high standards, I would be more than happy to book through them again.
