Vale do Lobo is without doubt one of the Algarve’s most popular destinations. Luxurious and fun, with miles of beach to enjoy, fabulous golf courses, outstanding restaurants and amazing holiday homes, Vale do Lobo, a favourite with celebrities, is the top choice for stylish holidays with family and friends. Home to some of the most prestigious and beautiful properties in the Algarve, the resort is ocean-facing and washed by the clear waters of the Atlantic.
The beach is miles of fine golden sand, backed by ochre cliffs, topped with umbrella pines – typically Algarve. The Praça (square, in Portuguese) is the central hub of the resort and is located right by the beach, offering a great range of restaurants, bars and live entertainment.
From morning to night, the Praça is where you can relax, spend time with friends & family, enjoy fabulous food and sip cocktails at sunset as day moves to night. Most of the holiday homes we offer are within walking distance of the Praça and beach, making for very easy holidays.
Throughout the summer there is live entertainment on a daily basis. The team at Algarve Villa Selection has spent some fabulous afternoons and evenings there. You have the beach bar too which is perfect for a cold drink in between enjoying a lazy beach day. We have teamed up with the 7 venues at the Praça so all our guests can enjoy the best tables and have a fabulous sunset view. Restaurants and bars at the Praça are all of a high standard and there is something for everyone. There is Monty’s, Amore, Sandbanks, The Deck, The Beach Bar, The Roof, and La Creperie.
