Situated in a picturesque countryside location on the outskirts of the lovely town of Almancil, Villa Helder offers charm and romance in bucket loads! This spacious, four-bedroom property is the perfect escape for you and your loved ones.

Situated walking distance from local restaurants, and a short drive from the town, best local beaches and golf courses, the villa offers the best of both worlds, peace and quiet alongside all the amenities and entertainment you could need!

A large gate reaches the villa itself and walled grounds, offering all the privacy you could need. Filled with enchanting features and delightful furnishings, this unique property provides the opportunity for a genuinely unforgettable Algarve holiday! Owned by an artist, the villa is a gallery adorned with displays of art, famous paintings and photographs created by the owner and several other talented artists.

On the main floor, there are three spacious double bedrooms; one boasts an en-suite bathroom, while the remaining two shares a family bathroom. Each room offers its delights, so each guest can pick a space that fits their style! The final twin bedroom can be found on the lower basement floor alongside a further bathroom.

A few steps down from the main floor, guests will find a large and spacious lounge, with a hand-painted ceiling, relaxing sofas, cable TV and a grand piano. A large dining room, with a traditionally styled oval table, leads through to a fully-equipped kitchen.

Both the kitchen and dining areas offer space for you to enjoy quality time as a family, catching up away from a busy day to day lives. In the basement, there is also a large games area, with a snooker table, table-football and plenty of room for everyone to gather around.

Doors lead out from the lounge and kitchen to the beautiful terrace, where the glistening private swimming pool takes pride of place! With a patio, barbecue and outdoor dining space, guests could spend all their time outdoors, soaking in the sunshine throughout the day.

Located a fifteen-minute drive from the main airport in Faro, the small town of Almancil, with its charming atmosphere typical of the Algarve, offers an ideal location for a sunny holiday in Portugal. And with Albufeira, Olhao and Vilamoura being easily reachable by car, there is an abundance of activities for a group of holidaymakers.

Once an expanse of pine forests and empty beaches, Vale do Lobo has been transformed into the height of luxury over the last 50 years, and is just a short drive away. 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!

With two 18-hole championship golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean, Vale do Lobo is the dream destination for any aspiring golfer. So fantastic are the facilities, the resort hosted the Portuguese Open in 2002 and 2003!

The numerous freshwater lakes and lagoons draw a considerable amount of migrant and inhabitant birds. This makes this destination ideal for bird watchers or those who admire an array of beautiful birds, including Flamingos. Additionally, the Ria Formosa Natural Park is a few miles west of Faro and a half an hour drive from Quinta do Lago.

The nearby resort of Vilamoura is just fifteen minutes away and has a lot to offer visitors, not least the restaurants, bars and stylish boutiques to be found in the marina area. There are two great beaches, and many opportunities to experience nature whether on foot, by bike or while taking part in any number of water-sports.

The Resort

Vale do Lobo is an expansive, one-of-a-kind resort where all holidaymakers, from couples and friends to families with children, can enjoy the luxury experience of a self-catered holiday villa year-round.

As a guest of the resort you’ll have access to its tow-kilometre private strip of beach where life is always lush, but there is no shortage of other fun and indulgent activities for both kids and adults. You might choose to enjoy the excellent spa facilities or head down to the Praca, Vale do Lobo’s central seaside hub of luxury boutiques, bars and clubs.

This resort also boasts two championship golf courses as well as a private tennis academy, attracting guests who are as passionate about sports as they are about having a world-class holiday. 


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. 

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!
