Casa Katrina, Quinta do Lago Area, Algarve

Property ref: PA119

Katrina is ideally located in a cul-de-sac close to Pine Trees Riding Stables, five minutes from both Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, yet is a haven of total peace and privacy.

This beautiful and substantial villa is set in spacious grounds with extensive lawns. Electric gates open onto the imposing drive and the garden is enclosed with tall pine trees providing welcome shade. A large terrace with exceptionally comfortable cane and upholstered furniture overlooks the swimming pool. Winding paths through the lawns lead to the barbeque, apartment and the illuminated, astro-turfed tennis court which also has a basket ball practice area. For the keen golfer there is a 5 hole putting green, sand bunker and driving range net, all tucked within a hedged off area.

Inside the villa there is a huge games room on the lower level for snooker and table tennis enthusiasts. The furnishings are a blend of oriental and traditional, the living/dining room is enormous and the kitchen is attractive and modern with black granite work surfaces, a large American style fridge-freezer and a breakfast area at one end. There is a self contained apartment set away from the main villa, with TV, DVD and a private, sunny patio.

Mr H "Thank you for your e-mail.  Firstly I would like you to know that we had a lovely holiday at "Katarina" and very much enjoyed the facilities available there. We will certainly be interested in doing the same again as soon as possible".

Mrs B "I wanted to thank you for your advice and for recommending villa katrina. It was perfect in every way and we all voted it our favourite villa to date.  The facilities were fabulous for our age range and the location was superb. We hardly needed to travel which for a one week holiday was ideal."

Mrs S "We returned yesterday from the above holiday and wanted to make it a top priority to write and thank you for yet again (4th time) organising such a great time for us. The event was a surprise for my husbands 60th birthday which worked brilliantly. As usual your description of the villa was great and all the preparation beforehand was first class. PLEASE pass on a HUGE THANK YOU to the local staff who were fantastic.  The shopping was exactly as we wanted, all packed away and a real treat!  Many thanks. Helen made a wonderful cake and she in turn recommended Chef Affairs – a couple who came and cooked us an amazing meal – can let you know full details if you want – thoroughly recommend them.   So, once again very many thanks to ALL involved.  We continue to recommend you and hope it will not be too long before we are booking again."

Mr O. May  " The holiday was fantastic and the help we received in Portugal from Sonia and Alan was second to none.  The Villa was just as described - fabulous"

Ms T. June  "The local villa people were really helpful and flexible & definitely interested in ensuring we had a good holiday".

Mrs S. May  "Just a quick note to say thank you to all those at the The Agency Villa for making our stay so enjoyable. The cleaners were very efficient and also the catering company that you provided details for – delicious food and expert service. We will definitely come back if we can manage to get the family all together again!" 

Miss L June  "What a villa! We had an enchanting holiday, the property is idylic. We shall be back!!"


Quinta do Lago Area, Algarve

These prestigious developments are arguably the most sought after resorts in the Algarve, with golf courses considered to be amongst the best in Europe. Set in the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park, Quinta do Lago has some of the most luxurious villas on the coast. The resort was carefully planned, with gleaming, whitewashed villas blending neatly into pine trees, and golf courses which are an oasis of green. Facilities include floodlit tennis courts (professional coaching available), two top golf courses, horse riding, water sports and squash. There are superb shops at Quinta Shopping, including fabulous boutiques offering exclusive designer labels and amazing interior design outlets. In addition there are some wonderful, international restaurants on the estate - one of our favourites is the Casa do Lago overlooking the lagoon. Vale do Lobo is best known for its fabulous golf courses - including the famous Ocean Course, one of the prettiest in...

Europe - and many people consider it to be the Algarve's finest resort. Set in a valley, running down to the sea, there is a magnificent white sandy beach with fantastic beach front restaurants, bars and cafés. The famous Vale do Lobo Tennis Academy is one of the finest of its kind in Europe; there are fourteen hard courts, set in a pine clad amphitheatre overlooked by the superb club house; it is difficult to imagine a more relaxed and picturesque setting to enjoy a game of tennis. Throughout the summer, activities include archery, dance classes, exhibitions, children's ballet and massages. Dunas Douradas is situated between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo and is popular with golfers as it is close to so many of the Algarve's top courses. It is also the perfect resort for families. Set in 77 acres of pine forest, the estate is named after the golden sand dunes in the area. Most of the villas have their own pools but you can still enjoy the superb communal pool in the heart of the resort. There are also tennis courts, which can be booked and paid for at the reception, lovely beaches close by, a mini-market and 24 hour security. Although all the resorts have supermarkets, most visitors tend to shop in nearby Almancil which has several excellent supermarkets and a fantastic selection of restaurants ranging from small, family run bistros to five star international establishments. The restaurants in these resorts can be a little bit pricey and the menus are often international so it is worth driving inland for more authentic and reasonably priced choices.  
Close to some lovely beaches and ideal for golf enthusiasts with numerous sports and leisure facilities. Luxurious properties with landscaped gardens.
Inevitably, the coastal areas are more likely to be adversely affected by building work. Restaurants are likely to be more expensive in these resorts.
