About the Owner

We live in South Wales with our wives and children where we own a building company. We have both always enjoyed the Portuguese way of life when visiting the country so we decided that the time was right to buy our own holiday home. As we both have young children finding the right location was very important. We needed a villa that was close to all local facilities but was somewhere where we could feel like we were totally relaxed. We found our dream villa in 2004 and liked the area so much so that in 2008 we purchased another villa there!

Absolutely delightful villa, plenty of space for all the family and was suitable for three generations to holiday in harmony! Ideal pool and terrace area with a fantastic purpose built outdoor bbq, men where over the moon and didn't want to leave the villa, happy to bbq every night! The orchard was very pretty and the ability to pick fresh limes for evening mojitos was lovely. Close to the beach and local town which wasn't commercialised, therefore able to experience the portugese way of life! We hired a car but you could easily enjoy the holiday without. Villa spotless on arrival and contact with the owners before going and after returning home was efficient. Owners more than happy to accommodate our needs with swift replies to any queries.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week in July this year and I am eager to go back again next year. The whole process from contacting the owner right through to the end of our stay was faultless. The owners answered my (many) queries promptly and with great detail.

The villa itself is gorgeous, it is very well kempt, everything was clean and tidy, the grounds had obviously been well looked after and the pool was blissful! There was plenty of deckchairs around the pool and the villa had everything you needed from kitchen utensils, to films, and even games for the family to enjoy in the evenings.

With the villa being close to so many amenities and only a 10 minute walk to the beach I would say that this is the perfect holiday for young and old alike and have and will keep on recommending it to my friends and family.

an oasis of tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience we encountered was flawless, good communication from the owners made the holiday so much better. The villa itself is easy to find, close enough to town to not feel remote but far enough away that you enjoyed the peace & quiet. The villa itself was bigger than expected , well layed out with plenty of places to either relax on your own or come together as a group. Air conditioning throughout the villa made the inside space a pleasure to be in. Satellite TV as well as Wifi gave you the comfort of home as well as a fully functional kitchen. Obviously a lot of attention to detail has been made to ensure you have an enjoyable stay, the pool was clean ( we saw the pool cleaner 3 times a week) with enough Sunbeds to ensure that everyone could relax. The place was spotless when we arrived and was cleaned to the same standard during the 2 weeks we stayed. if I was ever to return to the Algarve I would certainly contact the owners for a repeat visit.

Returning for the third time next year

  • 5 of 5

We are a party of six adults and four children and this villa meets our needs perfectly. There's plenty of space for us all, both inside and out. The kitchen is well equipped with all utensils, pots, pans, crockery etc. required to produce a great barbecue. The outside space works well with a built in barbecue and plenty of dining furniture which can be placed in the sun or shade.

Armacao de Pera is easily reached with a short walk where you find a huge variety of restaurants to suit.

We have stayed in many villas over the years and when we stayed at this villa in 2013, we were more than happy with the cleanliness upon arrival however I must say that in 2014 there was a definite improvement which was maintained when the cleaner returned mid-holiday.

The only thing that I feel the advert is vague about is the location of one of the bedrooms. The twin room with en-suite is not accessed within the main villa, it is across the patio and a separate self contained room. This has not been a problem for our party but might be worth being aware of.

We're all looking forward to returning next year.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful, a real home from home with everything we needed and more. The photographs of the pool really don't do it justice as it is much larger in reality. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 5 children yet the villa was more than spacious enough. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend staying here.

From the Owner

We bought the villa after many years of searching the Algarve for the perfect location. Armacao de Pera is a beautiful town that has not been over commercialised like many of the other resorts in the area. Armacao de Pera is within a 30 minute drive from Faro Airport and is very close to Zoomarine and two water parks. We especially like arriving at the beach early in the morning and watching the fishing boats return with their daily catch.
