Villa Location
Villa Talefe lies in the resort of Vale do Lobo and North West of Quinta do Lago, an excellent location in an area of pinewoods and citrus groves. It is away from the hustle and bustle, yet less than a 5 minute drive from the shops, restaurants, sandy beaches and golf courses in these nearby resorts. The nearby town of Almancil, with a selection of shops and restaurants is also just 10 minutes' drive away. Our Villa Bica is on the same lane.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The Buganvilia Plaza and Quinta Shopping centres, with chic fashion shops and a choice of restaurants, are a 15 minute walk from Villa Talefe. For your daily essentials, the nearest supermarket is in the resort of Almancil, less than a 10 minutes' drive away.

Bars and restaurants

There are restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets in the area, ranging from local Portuguese dishes to quality international cuisine, plus several excellent beach bars. Both Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago have a selection of high end restaurants. Further afield is the international yacht marina of Vilamoura, with a range of restaurants and bars.


There are a number of glorious sandy beaches to choose from along the coast. Vale do Lobo Beach is less than a 5 minutes' drive away, lined with pinewoods and wooden thatched sunshades. Here you will also find water sports, lifeguards and beach bars. Alternatively, Praia do Garrão beach, is sandy with calm waters as well as plenty of watersports available during the summer months and a variety of restaurants and beach bars.

Alternatively, the Slide & Splash waterpark is a 40 minute drive away, with plenty of slides and flumes to keep the whole family entertained.

Places of interest

On the outskirts of Almancil is a delightful 18th century church called Sâo Lourenco - well worth a visit to admire the blue and white azulejo tiles. If you go a bit further to the old town of Loulé, 20 minutes away, there is a maze of narrow cobbled streets lined with cafés, bars and restaurants, a 13th-century castle and a gypsy market every Saturday. Alternatively, the historic town of Faro, encircled by ancient city walls, is a 30 minute drive from Villa Talefe and is well worth a visit.


Golf is at the heart of Vale do Lobo with 2 glorious, 18-hole championship courses. Choose between the challenging Royal or the scenic Ocean course.

Activities and things to do
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.

Laura Kavanagh, 05-Jul-2015

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Talefe! The villa far exceeded our expectations, it's huge! Inside the villa the bedrooms, bathrooms, living room and kitchen are all really well maintained and all bedrooms have aircon, which was great. Once you've looked around the kitchen you'll find everything you need, well stocked with utensils and 2 large fridge freezers. The pool was lovely and the gardens are massive and provide lots of space for sunbathing and shaded areas under the large tree too. To add to this, there is the BBQ area, pool table and the table tennis table - all of which were in great condition and a huge bonus for us all to have a play on! The villa is actually very close to numerous restaurants, the best by far being Alambique, within walking distance.
