Villa Description
Swimming pool, pool terrace and sunbathing area

There are 2 lawned areas to either side of the main entrance, making this the perfect place for the little ones to kick a ball about. To one side of the attractive pool is a raised terrace, with countryside views where you can sit and dine alfresco, enjoying the gorgeous food prepared on your very own brick BBQ. Or, why not sit back on one of the sunbeds, with a book and cool drink and watch the world go by? Steps lead down from the pool terrace to an attractive open area with fruit trees, which complements this outdoor space further.


Villa Candida is accessed via a small track with gates opening up to a paved forecourt and driveway with a parking area for several cars to the side. At first glance you will see attractive flower beds with colourful flowering bushes as well as palms and cypress trees. This is where your holiday starts!

Location features


Villa Candida is tucked off a small track, set in countryside, just a few minutes drive from the centre of both Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo and the small town of Almancil - a convenient location within easy reach of excellent amenities, restaurants, entertainment, golf and beautiful beaches.

There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the area, from simple local Portuguese (one at the end of the track) to quality international cuisine.

There are lovely consecutive beaches within a few minutes' drive, at Quinta do Lago, Vale do Garrão and Vale do Lobo, all with excellent beach bars/restaurants.

This is a perfect locality to sample a cross-section of all the Algarve has to offer, from local tradition to international style.

Two miles to the north, Almancil is a thriving little town with all manner of shops and amenities. A mile south are the Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, with chic fashion shops, restaurants and a nightclub. The nearest supermarket is 2 miles in the nearby resort of Almancil.

The praça at Vale do Lobo, which overlooks the lovely sandy beach there, is just over 2 miles from Vale das Canas. There are shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs here, with a children's play park very close by.

The Ria Formosa Natural Park stretches from Tavira to Faro: the Quinta do Lago part of the Park is around 3 miles away, with its nature trails, wildlife and beautiful views.

Top quality golf courses, tennis centres, horse-riding, a nature reserve, go-karting and a water-splash park are all within a 7 mile radius, whilst just a little further away one can visit Vilamoura's international yacht marina, inland Loulé's colourful traditional market, and Faro's historic old town.

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.

Quinta do Lago Water Sports Centre
Catering for water babies of all ages, the centre offers a terrific range of both lake and beach water sports. Windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking and rowing are available on the lake or try a mini course in sailing, windsurfing or water skiing.
