Vale do Lobo in 1973

The first Palmer & Parker brochure was published in 1973.  The page on Vale do Lobo makes informative reading!  The Dona Filipe hotel was already there but run by Trust House Forte and Vale do Lobo was a small village with one golf course.  Most of the houses that were there then have been replaced now but it remains a charming area with excellent villas.  (Click the image for a scan of the original page from the 1973 brochure.)
