About Krys Isone


I want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, so please feel free to contact me to ask any questions or requests you may have to ensure a first class holiday for you and your family or friends.

Looking forward to speaking with you


Krys Isone purchased this villa in 2006

Why Krys Isone chose Almancil

We bought this villa in 2004. It is within the Golden Triangle yet is in a semi rural position which means you can get well away from the busier parts of the Algarve. Apart from the two houses either side, our neighbours are all Portuguese. The Portuguese are exceptionally friendly and almost all speak excellent English.

What makes this villa unique

We use the villa as a home and we do not consider it solely as a rental/business opportunity. We hope that you, too, will feel completely at home and where you will see that we have tries to think of everything you will need.

There is a travel cot & bedding, baby changing mat, stair gate and a high chair for those of you with little ones.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Another brilliant two weeks. Villa immaculately maintained and superbly furnished" DG

"What a stunning house - so beautifully decorated and furnished - how could we not feel thoroughly spoiled!! So many places to visit, so little time. What an excuse to return again. ML

Had a fantastic time at this beautiful villa. Everything perfect! The weather , the pool and all the restaurants. We have been staying in the Algarve for 26 years and this is the nicest villa. MC

Five star relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful holiday, the villa was fabulous with an amazing pool in a quiet position tucked away from the main tourist areas. A short drive to wonderful beaches and some amazing restaurants.

The villa has everything you could possibly need, the barbecue and patio dining area were great and the pool was simply the icing on the cake!

Fantastic, we will be back!

Lovely home & most relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting this villa for a few years now, we love it!

The house has everything you would ever need for a lovely luxury break away in the sun... a real home from home.

We normally visit just the two of us or with friends/family so have done lots of exploring of the local area. We are always spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out, there's a great choice of restaurants for every budget - our favourite being a very Portuguese little chicken shack called Marufo - the best chicken & chips around!

This year was a little different though as we visited for the first time with our daughter who was 6 months old. This meant our holiday was based very much around the villa and it was great! We had lots of BBQ's and cooking at home which made for a very relaxing holiday. We found the villa to be very baby friendly with stair gates, high chair, cot, baby pool, changing mat etc... the owners have thought of everything! I can't imagine being trapped in a hotel room with a young baby so this was perfect for us.

We hope to be returning again soon.

Home from home only better!!

  • 5 of 5

We have already booked again for next year. We have had several visits to this fabulous villa where everything meets everyone's needs. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. There is nothing that the owner has not thought of! The private pool is a godsend for our grandchildren. There are many restaurants and other things to do which are easily accessible and the clean, perfect beach is a short car ride away. Definitely looking forward to going back next year.

Excellent family villa

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous stay with the family including 2 young grandchildren. This is our 4th visit and each time we are never disappointed. Only 15 mins from the airport and central to many places in the Algarve, Val de Lobo, Quinta. A variety of restaurants including Kaya a few minutes away in Almancil. The zoo and water parks are easily accessible.

The facilities at the villa are excellent catering for everyone's need. We will definitely return as soon as we can.

Communication between us and the owner Krys was excellent and any question was answered immediately. The information given about the villa and locality enhanced our stay.

Relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

This was my sixth visit to the villa, and it never disappoints. The outside area and pool is fantastic, the interior of the villa is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Almancil offers several good restaurants, and there are many more further afield in Val do Lobo, Quinta and Faro town. Also fantastic shopping in Faro town, 15 minute drive away. Beautiful beaches 10 minute drive away. Vilamoura marina, a lovely walk around checking out the yachts, people watching, loads of bars and restaurants. The owner goes the extra mile to make sure everything is spot on for your stay.

Can recommend if you want a holiday that is quiet and peaceful by staying close to the villa or within a short drive to more lively surroundings.

This was our eighth visit to the villa, and it has left us wanting even more for next year. It is such a beautiful property with every conceivable facility you could wish for.

The villa is light and spacious with three double bedrooms, the biggest of which is almost a self-contained unit with its own balcony with table and chairs and spectacular views. The swimming pool has two separate patio areas to catch the sun at all times. We use the barbecue as much as we can and have never eaten inside.

This year we had our young grand daughter with us and the owner kindly provided a cot and highchair. The maintenance is excellent and the manager calls in regularly and is there at the end of the phone if any problems arise.

We particularly like the Almancil area as it is at the top of the 'Golden Triangle' with easy access to the stunning beaches and numerous restaurants. We particularly like Eduardos, Antonios, Spikes and the Conrad Hotel for Sunday barbecue lunch. Faro Island is also another interesting location.

My husband has mobility problems and the villa is great for him as He does not have to use the stairs (we use a downstairs bedroom). Also being 15 minutes from Faro airport is a bonus.

One of our biggest pleasures is sitting outside by the pool and gazing up at the massive expanse of big blue sky.

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and have loved every minute of my stay(s) there.

The coastline is approximately 7km away - about 10 minute drive. Numerous typical Algarve beaches close to the villa, all of which are beautiful with smooth yellow sand. In the high season there are several beaches that offer activities such as jetskiing, windsurfing etc.


Faro airport is 13 km away and can be reached by car in less than 15 minutes. In order to make your holiday more interesting we would advise the hire of a car although local taxis are good value and reliable.


Almancil town has a population of approx 5000 and is a short drive away (1.7km). The famous church of San Laurenco is a few minutes drive away (1.9km). The villa makes an excellent base for activities such as golf, tennis, horse riding, water sports, bird watching and walking.

Further Details:

The town boasts a large selection of restaurants and bars in all price ranges and a variety of other general stores. There are a number of small food stores including a wonderful modern supermarket. Great shopping in Faro. Vilamoura and Albufeira very close-by. Variety of great Water Parks nearby as well as a great karting track.
