Villa near Quarteira, Algarve - Quiet Location But Within Walking Distance To Aquashow Water Park
This large spacious detached villa with its own private pool and gardens is ideal for a large family or 2 families sharing. It is decorated to a very good modern standard and is bright and welcoming, with modern luxuries such as Wifi and satelite tv. The villa is near Aquashow Water Park and the Vila Sol complex where there is a supermarket, bars and restaurants and of course the Vila Sol 18 hole golf course. There is also a fabulous beauty spa where you can pamper yourself with various treatments. The villa is a 5 minute drive from Almancil and Quarteira where there are a vast selection of restaurants, cafés, shops and bars to suit all budgets.

highly recommend this lovely villa !
Arrived at the end of July for family holiday - The villa was spotlessly clean and well equipped - brilliant location - short drive to beach and excellent restaurants. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Great villa with everthing you need
We booked this villa for our first holiday with the whole family. Four family's stayed here and we never felt on top of eachother.
The villa is larger than it looks in the pictures. It has everything you need for all ages. I have teenage sons and when they'd had enough sun there were plenty of films to choose from on the tv. The outside area is spacious with a lovely pool . Plenty of sunbeds for everyone. Large kitchen with all appliances and enough place settings to serve an army. Well kept but still felt lived in and relaxing. Weekly maid service. Twenty minute drive from the airport. Car recommended but everywhere an easy drive too. Waterpark opposite and worth a visit. Local beach great with reasonably priced restaurants along the front. Go-karting track 10 min drive which we all loved. Even something for the younger ones. We loved our two week stay so much we're all going back this year. Highly recommended.
Large & Spacious Villa
Just returned from a family holiday at this beautiful villa. There were 7 of us (all adults) and a baby and there was plenty of rooms and space to accommodate us all comfortably. There was an additional basement floor with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom which we didn't even use! Well equipped large kitchen and a utility room with everything you need if you want to do any laundry! There was additional fridge freezers in here too which came in really handy to keep our beers cold! Large flat screen TV, Wifi & air conditioning all added to the home comforts. The outside space was great with a good size pool, plenty of sun beds and a large table and chairs, ideal for us all to eat outside. Especially nice when we used the built in barbecue!
Definitely need a car but local beaches, shops and restaurants are just a short drive away. Overall we were very happy in this villa, had a great time & hope to return.
great stay in portugal
We stayed here with 2 other couples and 2 babies and had a floor each in the villa so ample space for all. Infact pictures don't really capture how large the villa really is. Inside the villa is lovely, plain yet fresh and clean with every kitchen appliance you can imagine.
The pool was a welcome for heat and even had a kids plahhouse outside for our children. The gardens are well maintained and plenty of room to at, relax,eat and Sun bathe.
The villa is opposite aqua show water park and surprisingly there is minimal noise from its visitors. (There is however plenty of barking from the local dogs.)
Car hire is essential as there is only 2 restaurants within walking distance. The nearest towns are Vilamoura and quarteria. You cannot walk there as its just busy main roads all the way so car or taxi only. Taxi about £8 I think to Vilamoura.
Over all great place just wish we were a bit closer but villa itself fantastic!
