Vale do Lobo villas have been built with a keen eye on preserving the natural charm of the area. The resort was founded in the mid 1960s by a British businessman, a Mr. Costain, whilst out riding through the unspoilt pine forest to the wide golden sandy beach. He decided this was the ideal place to build a golf course with luxury holiday villas, townhouses, and tennis and sports centres - so he did.
Several decades after the first holiday villa appeared, the resort now boasts all the attributes of a luxury holiday destination. Development at Vale do Lobo has occurred sensitively however, and retains the distinctive character and charm that it was first designed with.
