Villa Serene is in a fantastic location which is very quiet and peaceful. The villa is very well serviced - garden, pool, etc. is maintained often. It’s spacious with plenty of outside terraces to make the most of the sun. Lovely pool and outside eating area too. The villa is comfortable and well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Lots of bars and restaurants close by to try out and of course the beautiful beaches are on your doorstep too. We had a fantastic holiday and would thoroughly recommend it.

Very seldom reviews such as the one about Villa Serene ( Stunning Villa with a Private Pool in a peaceful location in Quinta Do Lago, Algarve) correspond to the reality and/or exceed expectations. But with Janette and Tony Staddon's villa , that was the case. Villa Serene exceed the expectations; it was in fact serene, very welcoming, very well decorated where all the details that make us guests feel at home were thought of.
I did enjoy my week and was sorry to leave. Very important to highlight as well was Janette's kindness and always welcoming manner whenever I had a question.
I strongly recommend this villa!
A Golden Gem.

We have just returned home from a fantastic stay in Villa Serene, not only is this Villa in a perfect location being only 25 min drive from Faro airport but there is everything you could possibly ask for inside and out.
Janette and Tony have made this villa a true modern home from home. The kitchen has all the home equipment you could ask for, making it easy to rustle up a quick bite to eat or that more important morning coffee. Equipped with multiple different seating and eating areas, allowing for a quiet relaxation moment on one of the terraces, through to social feast around the BBQ.
The villa is set in a beautifully maintained garden, with a fabulous pool to relax within and cool off. And when we felt it was time to explore, the villa is only a short distance from the beach, restaurants, supermarket, shops and of course the golf course allowing for so many options.
Any queries I had before and during my visit were answered so quickly by Janette which again made this holiday the smooth relaxing one required.
Now we am home, we have already started to look for dates to return, Many thanks again Janette and Tony for opening up your home to allow us to have a fantastic holiday.

Lovely Relaxing Stay
By Zena Smith on 23-Sep-2019
Villa serene is very beautiful, very comfortable, quiet and private. We very much enjoyed our relaxing stay. We all spent many hours in the wonderful pool & then enjoyed lots of BBQs. Various choices for outside seating either on one of the two upstairs terraces or in the garden by the pool. The villa is well equipped with everything you need. It is a short drive to the lake, restaurants, water sports or beach. We hired some bikes to also cycle around which was wonderful. Also, a few minutes drive/bike ride to good supermarket & shops. The owner was a pleasure to deal with & was extremely efficient.
Serene Holiday in Quinta Do Lago
By Margaret on 15-Sep-2019
VIlla Serene is a contemporary, stylish villa in a very secure and peaceful location, only a 25 minute drive rom Faro airport. It is an ideal base from which to explore the local area and a welcome and comfortable "home from home" to return to at the end of the day. There are lovely sandy beaches nearby with many excellent restaurants.
We did not play golf but if you do it is the ideal location for a golfing break!
We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa and highly recommend it, car hire essential.
Best villa we have stayed in
By Tom Stacey on 06-Sep-2019
I will keep this short and sweet: if you are visiting the Algarve then you won't find a better place to stay. We (partner, me and 3 month old baby) stayed here for 6 nights in mid-September. The villa is fabulous. Spacious, very well kitted out, in a great location, very relaxing and quiet, with a lovely pool and loungers. We really couldn't fault it. And communication beforehand was all speedy and efficient, with cot being organised for the baby without any difficulty. We would definitely go back.
By Josie on 30-Aug-2019
This villa is superb, extremely clean, the beds were very very comfortable and the private pool is fantastic, it’s all definitely 5*. It’s a very short drive to supermarkets we did walk a couple of times. 5 minute drive to the beautiful beach and there are many good restaurants around the area. We are planning to return.
By Lorne Bourhill on 02-Aug-2019
We spent 10 days in this wonderful villa. The standard of furniture and fittings is very high and it is well maintained. The pool was a great size and the basket of pool toys was an added bonus. There was very good WiFi which kept the kids happy. The coffee machine, juicer and barbecue were a bonus. We enjoyed dinner on the terrace most nights. We were a family of four and there was plenty of space for all of us. There was air conditioning in all rooms but we didn’t really need it as there was a cool breeze in the evenings. Contact with the owner was brilliant and the information pack with things to do in the area was very helpful. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. We don’t play golf but if you do there were plant of courses to choose from. We’ll be back
Stunning Home from Home
By Shona Kyle on 22-Jul-2019
This villa is wonderful. So comfortable and clean. Also extremely private. We were a family of 4 and we had the most amazing time here. It's very well equipped- with all the utensils you could need, a brilliant juicer (we drank freshly squeezed orange juice every day it was so delicious!), a Nespresso machine, all the mod cons and a BBQ. The pool was lovely & clean and essential in the summer heat. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The aircon was a godsend too. A car is required - it's not near to any walkable shops.
Janette was an amazing communicator- helpful and direct. I appreciated that and we all had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. Thanks Janette!
By Jenny on 06-Jul-2019
We have just returned from a wonderful week staying at the superb Villa Serene.
The villa is just stunning and we felt very at home within a few minutes of arriving. It is extremely well equipped and everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday is provided. We tended to eat out most of the time and there are numerous excellent restaurants and beach bars in the area. We were on holiday after all!
We particularly enjoyed sitting by the pool enjoying the peace and quiet.
There is a wonderful beach nearby which was just beautiful and we spent several afternoons there and even stayed until sunset a couple of times!
Communication with the owners was both helpful and friendly and we can't recommend them or their property highly enough! Thank you Janette and Tony
By Audrey Adams on 20-Jun-2019

Villa Serene is in a peaceful location with beautiful garden and pool. The villa is extremely well appointed with comfortable sofas and beds. It really is home from home. The owners have gone the extra mile to provide everything you could possibly need, lovely fluffy towels for the bathroom as well as pool towels and beach towels. We have stayed in this area many times over the years and love the quiet beaches and huge choice of good restaurants. We would definitely put this villa at the top of our list for another time. Thank you Janette for all the care you have put into making your villa such a wonderful place to stay.
By Mary White on 22-May-2019
Great location, close to shops, beaches and restaurants. Villa extremely comfortable. Extra towels were supplied for the pool and beach. Gardener, pool man and housekeeping all very helpful and friendly. Complementary toiletries, coffee, tea, milk, washing tabs and dishwasher tabs etc were supplied to get you started. Golf was arranged at a reduced cost and also our transfers from airport. We will definitely return, thank you Janette for a wonderful holiday feeling totally relaxed. Mary xx
By June And Terry Chilcott on 22-Apr-2019
We have just come back from a fantastic holiday in Quinta do Lago, Portugal staying at Villa Serene. The villa had everything we could ask for, very comfortable and homely with an added bonus of a swimming pool. It had an indoor and outdoor dining area with a large sunny terrace upstairs. As golfers it was ideal as a short walk up the road and we were in Pinheiros golf course which has 3 nine hole courses and great club house. We were able to come off course and sit overlooking course for a drink and something to eat. Thoroughly recommend Villa Serene.
By Trevor, Mandy And Sophie on 14-Apr-2019
Even though it was only a short break a superb holiday had by all. The villa was outstanding with all home comforts and all essentials to hand with private pool in a fantastic secure location. Plenty of places to eat only a few minutes drive away. Would highly recommend and would love to return in the near future.
Many Thanks to Tony and Janette.
By Rachel Coward on 05-Apr-2019
Had a lovely week staying at this villa. It's so well equipped with everything you could possibly need and the beds are really comfortable. The area is very secure and as well as the excellent golf courses there is lots to do for non golfers - we loved the lake and the beaches are beautiful and easy to get to. Lots of fantastic restaurants. Would definitely recommend.
By Jo & Paul on 01-Apr-2019
We have been staying at this amazing villa for 10 days and going home tomorrow very sad as we have had the most amazing stay here with our family, it’s so relaxing here so tranquil we don’t want to leave. If you need to get away from it all you must stay here we have loved every minute! Great places to eat, fabulous beaches and the villa has everything you need so well equipped. Can’t wait to return! Thank you Tony & Janette ♀️xx
Lovely villa in a quiet location
By Lou Brown on 06-Mar-2019
I recently stayed at this villa and found it to be very spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the villa contained all the equipment you need - including beach towels.
The villa has a good sized pool in the garden, which is very private.
There is also a roof terrace which is superb for sunbathing.
The villa is on a golf complex with a beautiful course. Can’t go into any detail because we’re not golfers!
The villa was like home-from-home which made it very relaxing.
The beautiful sandy beaches are only a five minute drive away. There is a series of restaurants at the Beach and we enjoyed Julius and Maria’s.
This was our first visit to Portugal and we loved it! All the people were very friendly and helpful.
Would definitely recommend staying at this villa.
By Jenny Gray on 10-Jan-2019
We stayed here for a few nights in November, it is a Stunning Villa in a beautifull location. The villa itself is well-furnished and comfortable and was equiped with everything we needed. Plenty to do for both golfers and non golfers. We cannot wait to go back there again.
