INFORMATION: Villa Bonita is going through a refurbishment which will achieve a new swimming pool with surrounding white marble stone edging and lighting. All bedrooms are also undergoing an update and will be left with a fresh new look and updated furnishings.
Villa Bonita has already had other recent renovations completed, including a new outdoor built-in BBQ area with granite top and sink. There is also brand-new outdoor furniture including a U-shaped sofa area with a large table and two new parasols. The whole of the internal walls and doors have been redecorated in white and grey and the living room will include a brand-new 65” TV with luxury sofas and much more.
Villa ‘Bonita’ is a luxurious and spacious 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom villa suitable for up to 8 adults. The decor is high standard throughout and lovingly maintained. Villa Bonita boasts a fabulous indoor/outdoor living space perfect for two families sharing or several friends enjoying a sunny holiday together.
In the garden and poolside there are sun loungers, a dining table and chairs to totally forget about the ‘real world?. now’s the time to relax and soak up the Algarvian sunshine.
Villa Bonita, built over three levels and fully fenced, can sleep up to 8 adults. The villa has a private, south facing pool, pretty landscaped gardens, open-plan kitchen, and a basement/garage area with a table tennis table and air hockey . great for the kids to run about and burn off energy!
The pool area and garden is south facing to make the most of the sunny days and the covered terrace offers enough shade to escape the midday sun or to have long leisurely lunches cooked on the gas BBQ while the kids play in the pool! The pool has corner roman steps to get in to the pool and the depth goes from 1m to 1.5m - so not too deep for children. The overall measurements of the pool are 4 metres x 12 metres. The pool can be heated (charges apply) and a pool fence can be installed on request (charges apply).
If there is such a thing as the perfect family holiday villa, this is probably it! This very comfortable villa offers everything you could wish for in a family holiday. The open plan lounge / dining room has terrace doors leading onto the outdoor area. There is a wonderful feeling of space and light with plenty of room for everyone to relax and chill out while on holiday.

Concern for the environment is the focus of special attention at Quinta do Lago. To maintain the delicate ecological balance within the estate, which is flanked by the Ria Formosa Natural Park, stringent regulations have been implemented by Quinta do Lago SA. A strict, low density master-plan allows for only eight percent of construction of the total area of the estate, ensuring plenty of green space. Private villas, townhouses and village developments are carefully integrated into natural areas, nestling at the lakeside, secluded by woodland or flanking the golf courses.
We recommend car hire to fully appreciate everything that is on offer for your holidays. If you do not wish to hire a car there are several very highly recommended taxi companies that can be on hand to take you wherever you want to go.
For those who love to shop, the Quinta da Lago’Q' Shopping Centre is has many exclusive designers shops and some lovely restaurants/cafés - some very upmarket! There is also a selection of boutiques here if you really need a retail therapy fix. Hopefully you won't have to use it, but there is also a very well-equipped pharmacy here.
Almancil is a 10 min drive away and has many supermarkets offering a large selection, also of imported food items.
We recommend car hire when staying in Varandas do Lago.
From Varandas do Lago within a 5 minute drive you can enjoy a fabulous meal at the following restaurants: Alambique, Sao Gabriel, Thai Garden and at Vale do Garrao Beach : 2 Passos, Fins, Antonio Ta Certo, Izzy's Beach Restaurant and Julia's. There are also other restaurants like - Xenia, Nelitos, Pizza Pasta Fantasia, San Marco and bars like The Melting Pot in Quinta do Lago Q Centre. In fact, you have some of the best restaurants in the region just a short drive away!

We booked Villa Bonita through Sandy Blue. The villa was lovely. Very clean and a fantastic place to stay. Perfect for families and had everything we needed. The location was great - we are big fans of the ‘Algarve golden triangle’ and are already look to re-book our 2020 holiday through Sandy Blue. It was simple and easy to book with Sandy Blue and the team kept in touch with us prior to our stay - communicating everything we needed to know. Overall I would highly recommend booking with Sandy Blue.
A very pleasant stay in a lovely family villa. Lots of space for everyone, great location, everything you could possibly want! Cannot wait to come back again (5 stars)
Villa was fantastic it had everything we needed and more. Location was great. I would highly recommend.
We had an amazing time at Villa Bonita. The house, pool, garden and games room were perfect for us all. It was a brilliant house for two families sharing with two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs as it gave each family more privacy especially with young children. We loved the pool and being able to put up the pool fence and having it heated was so important and made our stay much more relaxing not worrying about young children and meant we all swam loads. SandyBlue were fantastic and called around very quickly on a couple of occassions when we rang asking for things to be checked. The house was ready early and everything was seamless checking into the property. We felt so safe and secure there. It was a home away from home. All our young children slept so well as they loved the house too and the neighbourhood was so quiet and relaxing. We will definately stay here again.
It was the second time we have stayed at Villa Bonita and we have really enjoyed it both times. Great location with easy access to beach and amenities. Villa is well equipped with everything we needed.
Thank you so much for the yummy welcome pack. The villa is stunning and the sun is shining!
The villa was fantastic, and completely complimented our needs. There was a lovely outdoor space meaning we could eat and relax outside and we really appreciated the size of the kitchen as we could cook and eat comfortably inside too. Having en suites in each of the bedrooms was superb as there were no queues and arguments when getting prepared for our friend's wedding! The location was excellent, we were close to all local amenities and it was hassle-free to get from A to B. The Sandy Blue staff were very helpful and accommodating, we appreciated their patience with our questions etc. and they provided a fantastic client service throughout our dealings with them – pre, during and post our stay. We would definitely consider using Sandy Blue for our next trip(s)!
We had a great time. Thank you for your attention and help throughout.
We had a lovely holiday at Bonita in glorious weather seeing family and friends in VdL and enjoying some great surfing and body boarding at Carrapateria out on the West Coast.
We're all home now after our fantastic holiday at Villa Bonita. Everything at the villa was perfect. Thank you for a great week.
We had wonderful holiday in Portugal. Everything was perfectly organized by Sandy Blue. Many thanks....
Our holiday villa in September 2015 which we booked through SandyBlue exceeded all our expectations in every aspect. We were a family group of 8 with ages from 3 to 60 and were in Portugal to celebrate my 60th birthday. We had 7 days of glorious Algarve sunshine which allowed us to make the most of the fantastic villa pool. The villa itself provided luxury accommodation for us all and everyone was impressed with the amount of space and the facilities. All-in-all it made for a wonderful and memorable holiday which was so good we all agreed to repeat it as soon as possible! Thank you SandyBlue for a fantastic holiday!
The Villa is ideally located for the beaches, golf courses and restaurants of Quinta and Vale do Lobo. Sandy Blue provided excellent service throughout our stay and any issues raised were dealt with immediately and without fuss. Highly recommended.
We had a great time at Villa Bonita. The house was in a super location and really well fitted out.
