holiday villas in portugal with private or shared swimming pools

Portugal is the ideal destination for your family holiday with something to suit all budgets and all requirements. Situated in the south of Portugal the Algarve has one hundred miles of stunning seascape, earning this beautiful region a deserved reputation as one of the world's finest coastlines and one of the top family holiday destinations. Whether you pick a Quinta dos Lobo villa or a more centrally located holiday villa in Vale do Lobo, you'll find fantastic beach resorts, sleepy villages of pretty whitewashed houses and superb landscapes. But why choose my website to find your next amazing family holiday? Here are just a few reasons.
  • WE ONLY HAVE FAMILY FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION all of which will give you & your family a very warm welcome.
  • A HUGE CHOICE OF PLACES TO STAY, not only by location but also by type - villas with or without private pools, self catering apartments or hotels - so basically I offer you a ONE STOP SHOP, at last a website that makes finding your holiday easy.
  • TRUST and SECURITY is VITAL FOR YOU & ME, so for some holidays, you book directly with the owner OR for others I have teamed up with reputable businesses and you book online directly with them - all of them are ABTA or ATOL members so they are fully trustworthy allowing you peace of mind.
  • RECOMMENDED HOLIDAYS BY OTHER FAMILIES who have been there and experienced them - as a mum myself I know that the best holidays we have been on are those that have been recommended by likeminded people.
  • BEST PRICE GUARANTEES are offered by many of my partner companies so you won't find yourself paying more than anyone else if you book elsewhere. You, too can ALWAYS pay the lowest possible price.
