Overlooking Vale da Pinta golf course this was a fantastic location (but you need a car). The nearest supermarket is only a couple of miles away but the hilly location means a car is a necessity. The nearby towns of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo are only a 10 euro taxi ride away for those nights you want to indulge in the local wines. The villa itself was new, clean and the pool was heated - perfect for a late summer break. Howard was helpful and directed us to local taxis, hire car and restaurants. hopefully we will be back next year.
10 of us and a baby recently stayed at Villa Pinta.
We had a fantastic time. The villa is well appointed, in a good position and with great views and facilities. There was plenty of room and the pool area is large. Would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation. Definitely 5 star.
We stayed at this amazing villa in the perfect peaceful location and close to beaches restaurants and the golf , the villa is very beautiful and well designed and equipped. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful restful holiday. I would highly recommend you book your car hire through the owners and transfers if needed. The local taxis are good but sometimes slow getting to you . Our party are hopefully going to return sometime in the future.
My husband and I organised this family holiday for 8 of us (3 generations) to celebrate some special occasions we have taking place during 2018. We kept Villa Pinta a surprise to the rest of the family until we drove up to the gates. The look on their faces at seeing this amazing villa was priceless.
An early morning flight meant we arrived at the villa before the permitted check in time but Howard, Algarve Coast Villa agent in Portugal, who met us at Villa Pinta, invited us to leave our luggage and return later which was very convenient - thank you again and much appreciated.
Set in a quiet area within Vale da Pinta Golf Course, there are three villas in the location with Villa Pinta being the first you approach and sitting the highest. Owing to their newness, the villas are not currently visible on satellite images. The location was very convenient for the discerning golfers in the family who played this and Gramacho during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed them both.
Please see the official photos and description of this villa on the website – they are very accurate. The villa has been built to a very good specification and if you have high standards, like us, you will not be disappointed!
The 3 downstairs and 2 upstairs bedrooms (all en-suite) worked perfectly for our family combination with enough space for everyone not to feel on top of each other.
There are supermarkets just a short drive away from the villa - details can be found in the villa handbook. We hired two cars for the holiday and felt these were essential to our stay.
In addition to using the cooking facilities at the villa we also enjoyed excellent meals at Fim do Mundo, Vila Nova, Mar d’Fora, La Bella Vita and Villa Medici. Having holidayed in the area before, our party size and with it being half term, in order to avoid disappointment we booked our restaurant tables a couple of weeks before we travelled.
Slide and Splash Water Park is a short drive from the villa, which has had some changes/updates for 2018 – our family felt it was worth the trip.
With a cloudy start to one day we took a short drive to Lagos for a stroll around the quaint streets of the town and to ‘people watch’ around the marina. The sun came out whilst there so we were soon back in the cars to return to Villa Pinta and take advantage of the lovely pool!
We opted for the pool to be heated which proved to be worth every penny. Using the electric pool cover each evening was easy and helped to retain the comfortable water temperature.
We did raise a couple of maintenance issues during our stay but these were dealt with promptly when we contacted Howard.
One suggestion for the comfort of future guests. There are two hairdryers in the villa – my own travel version gave up during the week - so suggest a third would be beneficial for parties with 4 or more with long tresses getting ready simultaneously.
Thank you to Solange, who worked very hard to clean the villa for our arrival on change over day and for being very accommodating about the timing when providing the mid-week cleaning service during our stay. As bookings increase, and in order to maintain the pristine condition of this beautiful villa, we anticipate additional cleaning hours would be of long-term benefit.
We would certainly love to return to Villa Pinta again and as much as we would like to keep it a hidden gem, we will have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family.
Thank you very much to the owners for letting out your beautiful villa and along with Howard, from Algarve Coast Villas, for helping to make our family holiday one we will always remember.
Fantastic newly built villa with all mod cons. Just a short stroll to the club house and the first hole this villa is also in a great location for exploring the many great rustic restaurants in the surrounding area and is also only a short drive to resorts and beaches.
We stayed at Villa Pinta for a golfing weekend. The villa is sensational, very well equipped with everything we needed, and extremely comfortable. It is an easy drive from Faro and the golf courses - Pinta and Garmancho were excellent. We found some fabulous restaurants in the local area, all of which were outstanding value. We plan to go back as soon as we can. loved it
Had a brilliant three day stay here. It's right on the golf course but nicely hidden away and so golf balls in the swimming pool are not a problem. House is beautifully appointed, close the beaches and some amazing restaurants. Perfect.
