A popular property in a fabulous location between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago

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 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 comfortable cane and upholstered furniture overlooks the swimming pool. Winding paths through the lawns lead to the barbecue, apartment and the illuminated, astro-turfed tennis court. There is also a fun golf area, perfect for young beginners.

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 has 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 and a private, sunny patio.

Things we love...

"Katrina is a beloved, second home and has a really welcoming feel. So many of our clients have enjoyed this lovely house and the location is great, being only a short drive from Quinta Shopping, Vale do Lobo and the beach. I stayed there with my family and my husband particularly loved the barbecue area! We also liked to stroll down to Julia's or Maria's restaurant in the early evening to work up an appetite (around a 40 minute down-hill walk) and then get a taxi home!" Ginnie, Managing Director

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!!"
