Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday at Villa Pinhal. This is the best equipped villa we've ever stayed in.....our host Hilary has thought of everything & goes above & beyond to meet your every need. This villa lacks nothing....& if you can think of something, as if by magic Hilary will somehow make it appear. One of our party had some mobility issues & Hilary loaned us a wheelchair for trips out & provided additional equipment to help during our stay.

The villa is spacious both inside & out. It is set well back from the road and offers plenty space to relax in peace & quiet by the pool. Hilary very kindly gave us use of a car for short trips to the supermarket & into Albufeira but she was also happy to arrange taxis for us which were very inexpensive & reliable. We loved our time here & certainly hope to return.

Amazing, a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

The villa really lives up to the photos and description. Highly recommend it for families of all ages. In a quiet spot but 5 minutes to the supermarket and restaurants and 20 minutes to Albuferia. The owner was so helpful and arranged a taxi to take our son to the airport, nothing was too much trouble, would definitely go back.

Home from Home!

  • 5 of 5

A clean house full of character, equipped to the last detail; even BBQ skewers! The barbeque even has a sink with running water!

The onsite owner was most helpful and attentive. She even organised taxis for my young adult children to go for a night out to Albufeira, with printed cards for their wayward return!

Set back a couple of minutes drive from the hubub of Olhos de Agua made the location more peaceful, with all the amenities of the town still available; a hire car being essential.

We had a lovely stay here and will doubtless return.

Must stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at this villa several times and I have to say it is the most clean, comfortable and well equipped place I have ever visited. Fantastic pool and BBQ area in beautiful surroundings. Close to all amenities and beautiful beaches. The English owner will accommodate your every need, not that you will need much because the villa has literally everything! A real home from home. I challenge you to need something that is not there. Would not stay anywhere else in Portugal.

A beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is well worth going to, it's a stunning villa, we didn't want to leave.

The owner, Hilary, is very obliging and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for her.

We can't wait to go back, it's a relaxing and restful place.

It would also be ideal for hen parties or oversea visitors who would like to visit Sir Cliffs winery.
