About Pascale Vande Velde
I am a 47 year old widow, living in Luxembourg and working in Switzerland as engineer. My husband and I decided to purchase a plot to build this villa in August 2013 for our retirement with the purpose to rent it for a couple of years and move into this villa at retirement. Unfortunately, my husband died from a diving accident in Algarve in September 2014. The construction was not started yet and I decided to pursue the project alone and build the house as we designed it together - keeping the same objectives in mind.
Pascale Vande Velde purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Pascale Vande Velde chose Estômbar
What I like in Portugal .... Portuguese are very nice people, food is great with Atlantic fish and if you are a wine amateur, you can have a great experience with Portuguese wines. If you are a golfer, Algarve offers a suited climate for this sport - minimum temperatures around 16°C in January, summer temperatures remain acceptable with often some wind to cool the air off. Rain is rare. You have also very nice walks and bike routes in Algarve countryside. And nautic sports with a specific focus on surf sports in Alvor and along the Vincentine Coast. Algarve is a location not crowded at peak holidays periods. You will not spend time queueing on roads, shops, restaurants in peak periods.
What makes this Villa unique
What made me fall in love for this villa was the location with stunning views on the Pinta Golf Course.

This Villa is so nice we had passing Golfers stop and come over to have a closer look.
Beautifully modern and homely decor, very clean and within 5 minutes drive to town centre, Water park , Club house and supermarket.
Can find no fault in this Villa, perfect for me (aged 56) and my Grandson (aged 5).
Pascale is so helpful, she would arrange the weather for you if she could.

Dear Allan, thank you for your review and I wish you nice future holidays with your grandson. Pascale
Summer visit to beatuful Algarve
Very nice Vila in great resort with beautiful views and a lot of natural light.
Quite modern minimalistic design language we love. Pool was very clean but not heated which did not matter at all during the worm week we stayed at this properly.
Quite a few options for groceries in short driving distance and a Jumbo supermarket within walking distance (15 minutes or so).
Communications with owner were great. We got answers to all questions and addressed all our concerns promptly.
Already planning a trip for next year.
Beautiful modern Villa !
My family and I stayed here for 2 weeks in June. The Villa is simply stunning, with all the amenities you would require for your stay. It sleeps 6 and has plenty of linen, towels, etc. All the beds are very comfortable, the rooms are very spacious and all fully air conditioned. They also have plenty of storage space. The pool is a fantastic size and the views over the course and surrounding area are lovely. The Villa has satellite TV with sky sports and most British viewing channels also. It is situated just to the left of the 10th green on the Vale da pinta golf course, with the neighbouring Gramacho course a short distance up the hill. The Pinta club house is a 2 minute walk away and a nice place to go for lunch or a quiet drink. The local Jumbo supermarket is a short drive down the road which is ideal. The Slide and Splash waterpark is literally 2 minutes away from the Villa also. Carvoeiro is a 10 minute drive away with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and a lovely wee beach with various water activities to choose from. I would personally recommend visiting the caves on the boat as that was a great tour. We were sad to leave and are already planning a return trip next year if possible!!
Two week stay
My wife and I stayed for two weeks in February at the Villa. It is not just comfortable throughout but also beautiful, the Villa décor is of a very high standard with all the latest mod-cons.
The Villa is located next to the 10th green of the Pinta Golf course with only a very short walk to the club house itself, it is also a short walk to the Gramacho Golf course. We played on both courses during our stay. Supermarkets as well as all local amenities are only a short distance away.
The Villa was spotless, very clean with all the luxuries you would want on a holiday, much better than hotel living, we are already looking at our next trip.
beautiful villa on a wonderful golf course.
Confortable bed. Nice view on the 10th hole of Pinta golf course and surrounding including Monchique mountains. Walking dista
A nice Villa but needs to be looked after
The villa is nice and provides for six peoples to stay. The beds are relatively small (160x200). There is hardly enough plates, glasses or cutlery. So one has to do the washing every day.
Not enough furniture for the garden or balkony or in the rooms. No parasol to protect from the sun.
It would be a great place to spend the hollidays but it needs some investment.
Furniture (chairs, laying chairs, sofas, towels, kitchen furniture,...) is in line with renting guidelines and in line with the maximum capacity of 6 persons. If guests eat twice home with 6 people, yes, they need to use the dish washing machine every day. Bed size is indeed 160x200 (queen bed size).
As far as parasol is concerned, it is highly recommended to close it and lay it on the ground when not used. Algarve can be a (very) windy region. Guests tend to keep parasols open - it is more convenient - but very often not compatible with the region weather conditions. There were 3 operational parasols when I left my villa mid June and early August they were apparently all broken. I stay twice a year in my villa and refurbish what is missing or broken. Outside of these periods, pragmatic solutions need to be found (eg one guest purchased a parasol at my cost in a supermarket closeby).
