Villa Vailima


Welcome to Villa Vailima, a masterpiece of a property, originally a XVIIIth century ruin has been renovated, rebuilt and extended during 10 years by a couple of Parisian antique dealers in love with Portugal and the Algarve.

Combining diverse influences of the south, Portuguese and Provençale with an exceptional character, this sumptuous Quinta is ideally situated within the Golden Triangle near Almancil with views across the countryside to the sea, yet only minutes away from the main golf courses of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, spas, bars and restaurants as well as the beautiful beaches of the Algarve.
