Holiday with a view

  • 5 of 5

Quite simply some of the best views you can get from any villa I've ever stayed at. Vivenda Aurora has it all. Views to die for, guaranteed sun (a bonus for those Vit D deficient Scottish dwellers), comfortable luxury and generally a great place to spend a week or two with family and/or friends. There's plenty to do near by including boat trips (we went on two and saw dolphins the second time, which everyone agreed was one of the highlights of their holiday) and the villa owners have a helpful book of things to do and see. If golf is your thing then there are plenty near by and for the shoppers amongst you, great markets (fruit, fish, meat, clothes and leather goods) to please all shopping tastes. If you want to experience unspoilt Portugal (rather than the brashness of Val de Lobo), then Vivenda Aurora is as good a place as any from which to base yourselves. A car is probably required but there is also a local taxi driver Carlos, recommended by the villa owners, who can ferry people between various places including the teenagers keen to experience the Gecko Club in Val!

Superb accommodation with great views /facilities

  • 5 of 5

Not far from Faro airport, and well away from the crowds, the hill top aspect was amazing. Entry to this beautiful Villa gave way to a superbly appointed and furnished interior. The surrounding area provided all we wanted from Shops , to historic towns and lovely beaches. Staying in though was well catered for with ample activities and and of course well maintained pool. two BBQ areas and a great kitchen, provided for all the cooking we needed, but the area is rich in superb restaurants, which were used extensively. Daily cleaning was provided and the Villa was perfectly maintained.

We had a really great time. Yes,we would go again, and probably will.

A wonderful birthday week!

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying at Vivenda Aurora for a week for my 27th birthday.

What a stunning family villa, with 360 breathtaking views. Despite its size (it sleeps 10), it remains a homely, personal place. The sun shines on the pool throughout the day and the upper balcony is a perfect location for some sun-downers. The two shaded out door dining tables are a great addition and perfect for long afternoon lunches or evening meals.

The pool was cleaned when we got there and was maintained throughout our stay. In addition, a cleaner came every day to make beds and other errands. The entire property was spotless and all appliances fully functioning. In addition, the kitchen was well stocked and had all utensils.

The owners provided some excellent recommendations for day trips and restaurants. Their advice was spot on, and we had some delicious, extremely well priced meals throughout our trip. They were also contactable for any additional questions we had during our stay.

I couldn't recommend the villa more. It is a family run villa and is perfect for families or big groups of friends.

I am assure you that you will have a wonderful, fun filled time and many memories will be made.

I will be returning!

NB: there is also free wi fi in the villa
