Great Location, lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa, plenty of room for our party of 7. Everything really clean and the villa had everything you would need. Perfect location, just a short drive from some magnificent beaches. We asked for the pool to be heated and I'm glad we did because one day the power went off and the pool became cold quite quickly. However the agent was around soon after our call and fixed everything. A very prompt and friendly service.

Just a few niggles: Steam came out from around the seal in the cooker door when cooking. Could do with more comfortable seats in the lounge, there is not enough for the number of people in villa. Some of us sat round the table in the evening. Double rooms would benefit from a King Size bed, also the mattress was hard and we found it uncomfortable. We were in the top floor double bedroom.

All in all though we and every one in our party really enjoyed our stay. Would love to come again.

Absolutely fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This villa was just amazing we had stayed here 19 years ago our 1st sun holiday. The villa has so much to offer. The property was spotlessly clean. The facilities within the villa were second to non. We could not have looked for better. There was 8 of us in our party 6 adults and 2 children. We could not possibly complain. The views from the villa are breathtaking. The villa was so comfortable it was actually a chore to go out in the evenings. You would definetely need a car if even just down to the near by shops. We went out every second night locally or to near by Albeaufira about 15 mins car journey. Worked out about €15-€20 euro per journey but absolutely work it. We would highly recommend the villa to anyone wishing to have a plus private holiday. We will be back. Thank you

Wonderful and spacious villa located in middle of Algarve region

  • 4 of 5

The location of this large villa is perfect for day trips around the region. You definitely need a vehicle to get around from this lovely location. The villa is very private, spacious and comfortable (we were only 2 couples) and the kitchen was well furnished. Unfortunately the dishwasher did not work and was removed and a new one came the day before we left. Not a problem for 4 adults, but a larger family group would have missed it more. The house was very clean. We used the pool several times without heating as the temps had been warm prior/during our visit (Oct 15-22) and we made sure to cover in the evening to help retain heat. We appreciated the bread, meat, cheese, milk & Juice that were provided upon arrival so we could have a snack before heading to the grocery store. We found the Apolonia store very expensive, so try smaller local stores or go to the Albufeira Calicos Fish & Fruit market for great fish, fresh bread and veggies & fruit (our 1st choice of store), or the Continente store in the Algarve shopping plaza (it's huge). The stove was challenging about heating if using 2 or more burners, sometimes OK, other times limited heat. We enjoyed using the outdoor grill (found charcoal, matches & starter cubes at the Fish & Fruit Market). We recommend day trips to Sagres and Cabo St. Vincente (look for the surfers on the small beaches down below the cliffs!), Silves (cathedral & Moorish castle), Sans B. Aportel - NovaCortica Cork Factory (Book in advance!), have lunch in Spain at Isla Christina & walk the beach and stop in Tavira to walk the beach, Carvoiero is a beautiful cliff ringed beach & Lagos marina, town square & market are all great to see. We had a wonderful time exploring the area and would recommend this villa to others. Would have loved to see Team Portugal play in Faro if the schedule worked!

Enjoyed our stay at Villa Amendoeira.

  • 5 of 5

This is a big well equipped villa. It had all we needed for our holiday. The villa is cleaned regularly and always to a high standard. It is close to the beaches and local shops.

We would recommend Prima Pasta which is close by and the food is always excellent.

We have also booked for August 2017 when we will celebrate my daughters 21st birthday as we cannot think of a place that we would rather be.

Fabulous destination

  • 4 of 5

An immaculate, fully equiped villa in a superb location.

The only reason I have not rated this villa five stars was because of the numerous leaks, though saying that it was a horrendous storm that caused the heaviest and longest rain fall.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately the weather was very bad when you stayed at the villa and we do apologise that you had water coming through. New terraces will be made during the Winter time so no water will come through. All the best and hope to see you again

Near perfect...

  • 5 of 5

I'd have to start by saying that I couldn't recommend this Villa enough. Right from my first step in the property you could see how well kept and clean it is. The party size ended up being seven and with the villa being so spacious, at no point did we feel under each others feet or not have a place to sit for some peace and quiet. The kitchen was well equipped and having two fridges was fantastic! We all also agreed that the showers were some of the best we'd ever used. Pool towels and maid service are included along with a washing machine so you can very easily get away with packing light.

The pool was fantastic, with a gradual slope down to a very deep end. Going in October we made the last minute decision to have the pool heated... a very wise decision indeed. Sure you could warm up quickly enough without it but to pop in to relax without shocking the system, it's ideal. Outside there is also a large drying area, should you take advantage of the provided washing machine, along with a table tennis and foosball table which I only wished I actually used.

The only two sight issues I found was with the flooring, yes, ceramics really cooled down the villa to make for a pleasant temperature inside, however it did cause sounds to become amplified, meaning that with the early risers of the group I personally didn't get the lie in's I would've liked, although it did get me up and ready to sight-see. The other issue being the cooker, it works great don't get me wrong, but it takes a very long time to reach temperature.

The villa is located at the top of a fairly steep hill so I wouldn't recommend walking from the villa to anyone a little less mobile. To travel about, a car is recommended. Away from the villa, there are two restaurants within a ten minute's walk (huge recommendation to try Prima Pasta, great food and service) and a sports bar and small supermarket within twenty. The sports bar seemed to show almost every game of Football in Europe, however due to the smoking laws it did get a bit smoky inside.

During our stay we had trips to Slide & Splash (fantastic fun), Albufeia (touristy and tacky), Sagres (great fort and lighthouse action) and the beautiful beach at Praia de São Rafael. All of these places being within a fifty minute drive.

As I said, to me the villa was near perfect and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Also huge thanks to the property manager, Florence, to making everything so simple and easy.

Ideal villa.
