Sleeps 6/8 people. Has a beautiful secure garden with pool. upstairs is 2 double bedrooms with balconys and a jacuzzi bathroom. Downstairs has 2 walk through double bedrooms ideal for a family, with a power shower room. A spacious lounge diner over looking the pool and garden and a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Outside is a beautiful enclosed garden, with pool and a El fresco dining area. There is also utility area with washing machine and drinks fridge/ freezer. We have built a bigger pool for our 2017 guest, and put a new power shower in. We have also added Uk channels to the Tv via satalite.
I live in Portugal, I do a lot of dog rescue and work for animal charities. I have 3 children me eldest 28 and my youngest is 11. My husband also lives here but is also in the UK for work.
Location is perfect, with a short walk to the old town and beach. Close to supermarket, restaurants and medical centre. The property is very secure with high fence all round..
We have built a much bigger pool for our guests of 2017 along with a walk in shower room. We have also connected the TV to satalite so we now have UK channels.
On arrival we had to wait until an employee of the owner tried to finish
cleaning the villa
We were told that pool would not be available for use until the following morning
After a day or 2 there was a terribble stink in the kitchen area which in turn was a dishwasher problem - after a few visits from a very unhelpful
employee of the owner ( same as above)
Even after the pool was supposed to be cleaned the inside of it was very clearly a total joke - bits coming off the surrounding areas etc
The response from the owner/employee was to say it mildly unacceptable as we had the most memorable holiday in 2015 at a different villa farther north
I would not recommend anyone to stay in this villa and certainly wiill never ever be in this one or any owned by this unhelpful uncooperative cheeky crowd ever ever ever again
We had a lovely holiday at this villa,despite of few bad reviews,wich we read before booking,but still decided to give it a try.
We have been to Portugal several times before,and stayed in different properties,but this one is which we loved more,to be honest.it has 3 good sized bedroom with lots of space in the wardrobes,bath with jacuzzi,shower(wich people keep saying it wasn't working,but it did.the hand shower had a problem,but as is a very fancy shower.you had the top one that you could use.this was explain to us at arrival),well equipped kitchen(everything you may need)spacious lounge and dinning area.the outside area is lovely aswell,with Astro turf ,perfect for children's,outside dining area,huge gas BBQ ,extra fridge/freezer for pool drinks.
The pool has been clean every second day during our stay and well maintained.
The villa was spotless clean,smelled nice and so did bedding.we had absolutely no issues at all during at our stay and Cami was always helpful with everything we might need.
I'm sorry to see the bad reviews,that I do not find as being real,as we've spent a lovely week with our children's there.we will be back next year,for sure.
Thank you for everything Cami & Joanne
I have stayed in lots of villas in portugal and had great experiences until I arrived in this one! It just got from bad to worse and I would like to warn all future potential travellers to ensure they do not experience anything similar! To begin we paid more than what was agreed! I clarified with the owner of arrival times when booking the villa however on the morning we left I get an email to sayer couldn't get access to the villa until 3pm (arrival 10am) we left our bags off but we should have been informed of this at point of booking! We arrive to find none of the TVs have any channels yet we were aware there was digital! Also wifi only works in one room! The swimming pool was all peeling with paint therefore needed cleaned everyday by ourselves as we had a little child! The pool also wasn't properly cleaned until the day after we arrived! The beds appeared extremely smelly and dirty on arrival all bedding needed to be cleaned and washed and new pillows had to be requested along with bed clothes! The shower did not drain so you were in water up to your knees by the end of the shower! There was a aweful bad smell in the kitchen coming from pipes (which the housekeeper thought we were imagining!!!)and air conditioning broke in a bedroom! I called the house keeper and both problems were fixed but at our expense!! The day before departing I contacted owner to enquire about deposit return the house keeper arrived to say we would receive in 8 days and that should could not be there in the morning to collect keys! When I arrived home I got an email saying no deposit return for reasons such as she had to pay housekeeper to come to the house 4 times ( contacted by ourselves only twice) also she made accusations the house was left a mess and sent pics through of 3 dishes in the sink and bedding and towels in each corner of bedroom needing washed, some rubbish left in the bin and that's it really! The reason then changed to be that she needed to pay for new sheets and mattress and bedding because my mums arm had cut and there were 2 spots of blood on the sheet!! ( none on the bed mattress or anywhere else!) I am sending a report to owners direct hoping to get my deposit back! It is absolutely disgusting and I feel people should not get away with this! With what should have been a relaxing lovely week turned into a week from hell!
We stayed here for a week at the end of August - a party of 6 adults and 2 children. The Villa was a nice size and comfortable for the size of our group. There were a few issues with the downstairs shower, washing machine and pool but I have been contacted by the owner to advise that these are all being addressed.
There is a supermarket at the bottom of the hill which has everything you need or go the other way and there is a Lidl and Aldi.
There is also a walkway that takes you to the old town - away from traffic - which is better when you have small children with you. The walk is around 10 - 15 minutes depending on pace but worth getting a taxi back for 4 euros to avoid the hill.
The Villa itself has 3 good size double bedrooms with an adjoining room on the downstairs room, perfect if you have children. The kitchen is well stocked and a good size too.
The shower downstairs doesn't work correctly and the one in the upstairs bathroom is just a hand-held shower so can be quite awkward - no shower curtain either so floor can get quite wet.
There is also a really nice outside area to sit to get out of the sun for a while.
The Wi-Fi is just a portable dongle so can only really be used in one room at a time as the range is quite low.
I do agree that some taxis find it hard to locate the villa, but once we got to know how to pronounce the street name correctly and directed them up past the hospital, they found it fine.
I have just returned from our first family visit to Portugal and we weren't disappointed. Joanne was a pleasure to deal with, helping with Taxi transfers etc. Jacob who had been recommended couldnt have been more accommodating and was there throughout our stay for any taxi requirements we needed.
The Villa is in a lovely quiet residential area close to a large Supermarket. Although a walk to the Old town, this was very pleasant and should you wish a taxi can be picked up from most places for €3-4.
The villa is very modern and tastefully decorated and the pool area is perfect for families.
Although on arrival there were a few small issues with lights not working and the shower not being 100% I would be more than confident that Cami who lives locally would have done what she could to rectify anything during our stay.
Beautiful weather and lovely villa made for a wonderful holiday. Thank you.
On arrival there were a lot of things either not working (lights) or already broken (shower fixings and sun loungers to name a few) but villa was fairly clean. There is only one good walk in shower in the downstairs bathroom, the upstairs bathroom has a bath with a shower attachment that has a wall mount about a metre from the floor, so no good for a decent shower - with 6 adults sharing one shower it was a bit of a pain when getting ready to go out at night. The pool is extremely small - could definately do with expanding this especially as the villa itself is so far away from everything, it's stated its in a perfect location right by the old town and the beach, this really isn't the case it's a good 20-25minute walk away which in my opinion isnt 'right by' anything, we also found that most taxi drivers didn't know where it was when given the address so we had to
Direct them ourselves (which wasn't easy at first!!) there was a bit of confusion when we arrived and the pool
Being cleaned, the manager did sort this out promptly otherwise ok, wouldn't return here, would only recommend if you want to be out the way completely and don't want to venture out much being the villa is so far away from everything
