“…fantastic time in your villa…we loved the position…”

I am sorry it has taken me some time to email you (we have been away again!) but wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time in your villa.  We loved the position and found it very spacious.  The couple who met us on arrival were most helpful.  I trust you are enjoying the summer.

Best wishes Richard

“…the villa is fabulous no question…the people…are impeccable”

Just a quick mail to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your villa, the villa is fabulous no question but the people you have looking after things are impeccable.

Brian and Sheila are helpful beyond the call of duty and Cheila is a lovely girl whom our kids took to very easily, which is not always the case. She kept the villa immaculate and our baby loved her when she did the babysitting.

They all deserve thanks.

Best regards, Nigel

“…amazing villa…amazing time…just what we needed…our new favourite resort”

What an amazing villa! It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, including Brian & Sheila, they were so helpful & always at the end of the line.

The toddlers loved the pool + the men loved the BBQ! The wives loved the Moët in the Jacuzzi !!

We have had the most amazing time.

Just what we needed.

We are sad to be going home tomorrow but Vale do Lobo is our new favourite resort. Thank you!

Fantastic holiday.

Thank you so much!

The villa was wonderful & we all loved lunching in the restaurants & lounging by the pool in the afternoons.

Safe, quiet & very well stocked. We had a great time. Perfect for our family.

Brian & Sheila were great.

“…faultless service…wonderful view…private…

…very much want again next year…”

Wanted you to thank for possibility to spend vacation on your villa.

The wonderful view, opening from windows on ocean, internal comfort, and also faultless service have left unforgettable impression.

Very much we want to arrive once again next year. Objectively would like to notice that a villa site one of the best in zone Vale do Lobo.

Other villas which are offered in rent have no such private atmosphere, as Fabulous Villa.

Sincerely yours,

Sergey and Lena

“…Чудесный вид…безупречное обслуживание….

….приватной атмосферы….

Очень хотим приехать еще раз в следующем году”

Здравствуйте Крис!

Хотел Вас поблагодарить за возможность провести каникулы на Вашей вилле. Чудесный вид, открывающийся из окон на океан, внутренний комфорт, а также безупречное обслуживание оставили незабываемое впечатление. Очень хотим приехать еще раз в следующем году. Объективно хотел бы отметить, что месторасположение виллы одно из лучших в зоне Vale do Lobo. Другие виллы, которые предлагаются в аренду не имеют такой приватной атмосферы, как Fabulous Villa.

Искренне Ваши,

Сергей и Лена

“…a great time…stay again in the future…”

Many thanks for the use of the villa once again, we have had a great time with all the family.

Brian & Sheila as usual, always on hand to ensure that things run smoothly.

Whilst I wish you well with the sale, we hope to have the pleasure to stay again in the future.

Kind regards,


PS Do not be too hard on Thomas he did well to get himself and his client over the gate!

Comment by owner:

The above PS comment refers to “Thomas van Mierlo”, a property sales agent, operating in Vale do Lobo, who was promoting the “Fabulous Villa”. Since this incident was reported to me by telephone, in writing and by email, instructions have been sent for him, not to promote my villa any longer.

“…holidays of great quality…magnificent…possible to return…”

I and my family have just returned from a wonderful holiday spent at your villa in Vale do Lobo. The house is excellent with all the conditions for holidays of great quality. 

Your house manager and his wife were very attentive and cooperative in solving a small problem that existed. 

Cheila as a maid  is of the best I have ever known and she was very important to the big success of our holidays 

Thanks for letting us know and use your magnificent Villa 

I hope that in the future it would be possible to return.

Best regards

Comment by owner:

The above “small problem”, refers to an unusual electricity power surge, affecting most of the Algarve, which effected one gate control, that was rectified very soon after the incident.

“....beautiful villa....immaculate....another fantastic holiday....”

Yet another fantastic holiday in your beautiful villa. As always everything has been immaculate thanks to Cheila’s hard work, and it’s always reassuring to know that the lovely Brian & Sheila are only a phone call away if we need anything. I wish you well with the sale but I also hope that we get to stay here again next year.

“ holiday....utterly private....breathtaking ocean views....”

Fantastic welcome from Brian and Sheila last night. Exciting two weeks ahead. They've been kind enough to organise friends and family on the golf too, and welcome pack very generous. 

A fantastic fortnight’s family holiday. Villa is truly spacious and utterly private, whilst being an unbeatable 2 minutes from the Praca, Golf Club and a lovely walk to the beach. Some breathtaking ocean views! Great service provided by Cheila, Brian & Sheila.
