About Chris Ehinger
We are a family with two children who have been loving holidays here all their lives. This villa has been in the family for over 30 years. Generations of kids have enjoyed holidays here, from babies through to teens and young adults, to families with grandparents. We love the peacefulness here, yet there is so much to do. We try to enjoy holidays here three or four times a year, sometimes with the kids, other times just with friends. We live in Berkshire, England, having moved from the States in 1996.
Chris Ehinger purchased this House in 2003
Why Chris Ehinger chose Vale do Lobo
We never get bored, there is always something to do. the restaurants are fabulous, and we think the beaches here are the best in the Algarve, if not the world.
What makes this House unique
The proximity to the beach and all the facilites of the Praca - indeed much of Vale do Lobo is walkable from this location. But the sweeping sea view we enjoy from our front terrace is the main attraction of the house.

A happy return trip to this lovely villa
Recently returned to this comfortable & well appointed villa 5 years later I wondered why I hadn't returned sooner!
This visit was in late June with a group of friends when the weather was nice & warm & the proximity to the beach was ideal. The villa is a great base for a mix of site seeing , enjoying the beach & there is also a huge choice of restaurants & bars some a short walk away others a short drive. One of my favourites was BJ's which sits along the beach & serves fresh fish, lovely to watch the sun go down from there.
The highlight of the trip though was a visit to Faro old town which is charming & from there a boat trip into the Ria Formosa to see how they are preserving this beautiful natural habitat & its wildlife.
Vale do Lobo is Portugal's best known and largest golf, tennis and beach resort. In an area of outstanding natural beauty with protected grassy reserves, the beaches are pristine, and stretch for mile upon mile of golden sand with dunes and golden cliffs. A truly year round destination, with three premier golf courses, the Tennis Centre with 14 multi surfaced courts, pool and gym, the Royal Spa and Fitness Centre with indoor pool and gym, Hamman and luxurious beauty treatments, Equestrian centre, biking, and go-karting to name but a few activities. In the summer enjoy waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing and sailing. There are so many fabulous restaurants, of varying price ranges, that it is impossible to visit them all in one holiday. The villa is only 20 minutes from Faro airport, and within easy reach of several excellent shopping centres, cinemas and waterparks. The local shopping centre (8 minute drive) has everything from local pottery and handicrafts, to international designer name stores. The villa is located in a prime position , south facing with wonderful 180 degree sea views, and is perfect for all ages. A car is not necessary, but recommended as the supermarkets are a short drive away.
We have local management agents, who are easily contactable if you have any questions about the villa, or the local area. They can also provide excellent babysitters if required.
We will take bookings in £ stering or Euros.
Golf: Vale do Lobo, San Lorenzo, Quinto do Lago, Vilamoura - to name but a few of the excellent and championship courses nearby. There is plenty to do for families with children of all ages, or groups of older singles. The nightlife in the Praca includes two nightclubs and there are several restaurants, newagents and shops. The Praca is easily walkable in a very safe area. The large pool in front of the house is open seasonally to all residents. Guests in the villa may purchase daily or weekly admission, children under 7 are free (there is also a kids' pool). Guests cards for the resort can be purchased at the Vale do Lobo reception, and used to obtain discounted entry to all the facilities.
