Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought i would let you know what a great time we had staying at your villa, everything went well right from meeting Emma (who was brilliant throughout the stay) right up until our departure, you are very lucky to have such a lovely villa and we will definitely consider a return. Simon and Family. 2013

We had a great time at the villa and a very easy flight home.

Emma met us and came round the day before we left and was very nice and helpful. The pool was cleaned twice while we were there and the maid came round halfway through our stay, so no problems at all.

We visited places that we'd been to before such as Vila Real, Lepe and La Antilla, but new places - Monte Gordo, Castro Marim, Ayamonte and we made it to Seville. Visited lots of local restaurants - all very friendly and good value and cheaper than Spain.

We loved the area -very Portuguese, quiet, unspoilt and would hope to go back next year. Rick & Alison 2012

lovely Villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Guida which was our second visit here, if you want a quiet relaxing holiday or a more adventurous one then I can recommend this villa, close to some fantastic beaches and terrific restaurants. if you like the historical side to Portugal then you are spoiled for choice with Tavira, Monte Gordo, Castro Marim and V.S.P all within a 30 minute drive. The villa should appeal to young and old alike, as I said this was our second visit and my 87 year old mother just loves it.

The property was very clean and well maintained, the gardens and pool area are lovely for those days when you just want relax and enjoy the sun.

Although we did not need to contact them the management company are just a phone call away and will sort out any problems.

I hope to return for another fantastic holiday here and would recommend it to anyone.

Just had the most fantastic week in this immaculate villa and grounds, although we know the Tavira area well Altura is such a lovely place, there is a variety of places to eat and lovely beaches all within a short distance of the villa, on our arrival Emma could not have been more helpful and she even dropped in a couple of days later to make sure everything was ok,I would certainly book the villa again and would recommend it to anyone of all ages,my 86 year old mother came with me and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

Once again thanks to Lynda and Jim for letting us have the use of there beautiful villa and to Emma for all her help

The holiday was fantastic and we hope to return in

  • 5 of 5

The villa was immaculate and the pool and garden were perfectly kept. The pool Maintenance company came on 2 occasions during our stay so it was always in perfect condition. Altura is a fantastic town. I've been to Portugal on many occasions but have never visited the east before. I was very taken with the place - much more Portuguese. We couldn't have hoped for any more.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely Villa.

Excellent holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this villa three times and it has always been spotless and well maintained and the owners have always been very accommodating. Altura has a beautiful long sandy beach which can be reached by car in 3 minutes and a 20 minute walk. There are very reasonable restaurants and good supermarkets in Altura so there is no need to go further afield if you don't want to. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa for an excellent holiday stay.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this lovely villa for 12 days this summer. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We could only stay for 12 days and they only charged us for 12 days. We were greeted at the Villa by the agents, who were very knowledgeable. The villa itself is very well maintained, very comfortable and homely. The pool is absolutely lovely, just the right size for a family of four. The villa and pool were cleaned on a regular basis.

Location of the villa was great. It was situated in a nice, quiet location but within minutes in the car you could access all the local amenities. There were 4 local beaches that we could get to within a few mins via the car that were our favourite. The villa had lots of information about all the different places you could go to and do.

We had a fabulous stay and can't wait to go back again.
