Guestbook comments from the manager

The villa was, as usual, superb. I love the new cushions on the sofa and the way you painted the yellow parts of the Mondrian style art in silver to better tone in with the rest of the decor. The new BBQ outside the kitchen is excellent, a villa now with two BBQ choices. The Wendy house was a lovely addition. Our boys would have adored it last year. Our friends said it was the best appointed villa they’d ever been to and they adored the garden. They have children and grandchildren too so maybe they’ll be in touch in the future. I can think of nothing more that could be needed for a perfect holiday.

We were very pleased with the villa and had an excellent holiday. Very good service from the villa management team. We would vote it 5 out of 5. Everything was there that we needed and you can be sure that the children made full use of the pool. Congratulations on a wonderful villa.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Boa Vista is a wonderfully equipped villa in a lovely location. It was perfect for my family of ten , ages ranging from 66 years to 19 months.

I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

A perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for the perfect family holiday villa, then this is the one for you. The description given is entirely accurate - the villa is immaculate, very comfortable and well equipped and the peaceful, rural location adds to the charm. The icing on the cake for us was the lovely warm pool which made it a pleasure to swim and play in with our 4-year-old grandson. The whole family has been catered for with the games room, boules court and lovely gardens where you can pick a fresh lemon or lime for your gin and tonic! A minor repair was dealt with within hours by the local manager. The local Bistro is well worth a visit, as is Calibri in Moncarapacho but we barbecued several nights with delicious local produce, enjoying the late sun in the garden. The local beaches are fabulous - you can catch the boat across to Fuseta island or the little train to Barril beach.

We have travelled most of Portugal including the Algarve over the last 14 years and Boa Vista is the best villa we have stayed in. We hope to return soon. Highly recommended.

First class villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Boa Vista for a week in mid September 2013 with our son, his wife and two year old daughter. Everything went well from the 'no hassle' booking process, the easy 'check in' procedure at the villa to the very well appointed villa itself. It was exceptionally clean and could not have been better equipped even down to all those little extras such as toys and games for children. The star, however, must be the large heated pool which we used every day. The manager was excellent and she quickly sorted out a couple of minor problems. The location is rural and very quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of Moncarapacho, the beaches and the larger town of Olhao. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and I would heartily recommend Boa Vista.

Quiet & Relaxing Luxury Villa

  • 5 of 5

A very big thank you to Paula & Steve for a wonderful holiday in their luxury villa, it is truly stunning. We have rented property abroad in the past but I think this will be a hard act to follow! The fact that it catered for all ages from my 3 year old niece who played with the box of toys you provided to the 20 year old lads who loved the games room right through to the Mums & Dads who enjoyed sitting out on the veranda sipping a glass of wine in the evening. The guys even used your set of golf clubs on the local Par 3 course and were allowed to play for free by the owner as he was not officially opening until the following week! We must also give you the thumbs up for the local restaurant ?Maria?s? that you recommended. We paid them a visit on three occasions during out stay. The food was amazing value for money all freshly cooked and totally delicious.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas over the world with many companies, most rated 5 stars, this and the other villas we have stayed in with Paulas villas are outstanding. This villa I would rate as 5 stars. From the welcome book, the pool and table tennis, the pool toys to the well stocked kitchen makes it a hassle free holiday in beuatiful unspoilt surroundings. The cleanliness of the pool, the beautiful garden and BBQ area means you can relax and enjoy yourself. The villa itself is luxurious and immaculate, the cleaning staff reliable and doing a great job. The local manager is welcoming efficient and friendly and wants to ensure you have a great holiday. The local cafes are not to be missed - Calibri Antonios and of course Marias. Do not be put off by the unfinished site, it adds to the charm and this villa cannot be topped. We keep coming back because it cannot be beaten. Thank you again for a wonderful holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone, all I hope is they dont want the fortnight we want !

The local beaches and beach islands are most definitely a wonderful attraction to the area. Fuseta with its wonderful beach, calm lagoon, two bars and small boats to the island is only 6 miles away. Armona, Isla Farol, Culatra and Tavira island are all close by and accessible by boat and small train. The bigger, noisier Central Algarve beaches, waterparks attractions are only 30 mins away, then you can return to the peaceful unspoilt Eastern Algarve and luxury villa.


The villa is only 20+ mins from Faro airport via excellent roads.

Seville airport: approx 1 hour 45 mins from villa. No problems hiring a car from Spain and bringing into Portugal. Excellent motorway door to door.

Also look for new low cost UK flights into Lisbon, approx 2.5 hours from villa. Car hire is essential and happy to provide some recommendations.


Within easy driving distance are: Tavira (regarded as the loveliest town in the Algarve), Estoi (with its Rococo palace now a Pousadda and Roman ruins), Olhao (fishing port, markets and excellent shopping). Seville is 90 mins, Lisbon 2.5 hours and Cordoba 3 hours. Within 30 mins driving west one can access major central Algarve towns and attractions including water parks, go karting, swimming with dolphins. The nearby Ria Formosa National Park offers excellent walks, beaches, birdwatching.

Further Details:

The small town of Moncarapacho is approx 2.5 miles away with supermarkets, bars, several excellent restaurants, petrol station, internet cafes, cash machines, dentist, free entry museum etc. There is also an excellent bistro restaurant approx 800m (within east walking distance) of the villa where guests go time after time. Steak on a stone being local speciality. Eating out in this part of the world on wonderful local fish, meats and wine is still incredibly inexpensive.

There is a comprehensive Welcome Book in the villa detailing all the local beaches and places of interest. The restaurant section is extensive and caters for all tastes.

We cannot emphasise how very inexpensive it is to eat out in the Eastern Algarve. Coffees still 75 cents, a large beer 2 euros, a litre of wine in many places 4-5 euros!
