Casa Convivio is a glorious, contemporary 4 bedroom villa that sleeps 8, and located in a superb position in the prestigious Vale do Lobo resort. Overlooking the iconic 16th hole of the Ocean golf course, this is an unbeatable location for your Algarve holiday. It has charm, style, amazing location with golf and sea views and just a 400m to the beach.
With uncluttered views across the golf course towards the ocean, Casa Convivio is a welcoming and modern 4 bedroom villa with a bright and spacious interior. The property, all on one level, except for the roof top terrace, has a generous lawned area to the front and side of the villa and a super terrace by the pool. The infinity pool, which can be heated (charges apply) overlooks the golf course and ocean. There is ample room for sun loungers for those lazy days spent lapping up the lovely sunshine. A pool fence can also be installed for extra security for the little ones (charges apply).
There is a shaded area on the terrace too – a traditional arched recess, edged with bouganvilia, and with seating for al fresco dining, morning tea or sundowner cocktails…. If you thought the views by the pool were good, wait until you see the roof terrace at Casa Convivio. This terrace, with space for sun loungers, is sun drenched for most of the day and offers breath-taking views from dawn to dusk.
The villa’s entrance hall leads to the open plan living and dining room, which has a contemporary décor in warm, calming tones. There are panoramic sliding windows leading from the living room to the pool and gardens. There is IPTV with a range of UK and international channels and Wi-Fi as well as air conditioning for your comfort. The dining room, with lovely Scandinavian style décor, has a large rustic wooden table that can seat 8 and the kitchen is bright and well equipped with everything you could need including oven, microwave, induction hob, fridge freezer, kettle, espresso machine, dishwasher. There is access from the kitchen to the outside dining area, with gas BBQ and garden.
There are 4 bedrooms at Casa Convivio. The master suite is spacious with a double bed, sliding doors to the pool and garden, and is ensuite with double sinks and a walk-in shower. There are 3 twin rooms (can also be doubles). Two of these share a family bathroom with double sinks and a bath with shower, and have direct access to the gardens and terrace. The third room has an ensuite shower room.
Should you be able to drag yourself away from the comforts of Casa Convivio to explore, you will find the long golden Vale do Lobo beach in front of the villa – simply walk approximately 400m to the access point near Vale do Lobo Praça. The famous Praça is the hub of activity in Vale do Lobo and here you have a choice of restaurants and bars (such as Montys, Sandbanks, The Beach Bar, Breeze), for both day and night time, as well as the beach, with sunbeds and shade for hire and beachside restaurants. There is live music and entertainment each evening at the Praça. The Resort boasts superb golf courses and health and beauty facilities at the Royal Spa. There is a tennis centre and supervised Kangaroo children’s club. As this villa is a member of Vale do Lobo resort, there are generous discounts available to you on Vale do Lobo golf courses (advance booking must be made in order to get these discounted rates. Ask us for more details) as well as additional discounts on other services should you wish to buy the Resort Card.
The Vale do Lobo resort is surrounded by natural pine forests, famous red beach side cliffs with miles of golden sand dunes which roll down onto pristine sandy beaches, all touched by the crystal blue waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
Vale do Lobo is located on the beach area known as ‘Praia Vale do Lobo’ considered to be one of the finest beaches in the Algarve. From Vale do Lobo you can walk in an easterly direction to both ‘Praia do Ancao’ and ‘Praia do Garrao’ through the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa which is a heritage protected area of lagoons and wet areas that support the local wildlife population. If you walk towards the west you pass Praia do Trafal and Praia do Almargem, following onto Praia Forte Novo and then onto the Quarteria stretch of beaches.

Having enjoyed an excellent overall experience last year booking a Villa through Sandy Blue for the first time, we did again this year and are pleased to report that they exceeded even their own high standards. We returned to the same the Villa as previously, which was immaculate as ever and equipped with a generous Welcome package including all the little annoying items that you immediately need, are so rarely provided but hugely appreciated if present. Genuinely faultless service. Having rented Villa over thirty times previously in the Algarve, I can confirm that in our experience, you should not look anywhere else.
We found that the villa was well equipped and in an ideal location within walking distance of all amenities and restaurants. We would recommend for a family and a group of friends. Sandy Blue offered a great service always there to help or answer any questions, we would definitely use again, Debbie Reed.
Please pass on our appreciation to Dawn for helping on Saturday she has been amazing. You have all been extremely helpful and I will definitely be recommending Sandy Blue to friends and family.
