A really clean, modern villa with all facilities that we needed to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our kids loved the pool, which was easily accessible from the back doors. Brilliant water park located nearby. Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay

Such a great time!

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely and spacious. The kitchen was a good size including all appliances (washing machine and dishwasher too). We used it for breakfasts and then ate out. The living was large and a great place for the family to gather in the evening. We played games and watched the news as there weren't many channels working. We were informed that these were being upgraded soon. The four bedrooms were perfect for our party of 6. Air conditioning in all rooms is available if requested with a charge. We definitely needed this because the temperature was 30c degrees! The inbuilt wardrobes were great in the bedrooms especially the walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom! A full length mirror would have been better in all bedrooms instead of just one. The were 2 shower rooms (1 up and 1 down) and a family bathroom in the master bedroom which had a jacuzzi bath which we didn't use because of the weather. Plenty of towels were provided and bedding which was changed mid week by the cleaners. The pool was used by the teenagers and was the perfect size although we could have done with some sunshades around the pool as the sun stays over the pool all day. The small pool is ideal for little children. We made great use of the balcony because it was sheltered and had rattan style seating, perfect to watch over the children in the pool. The balcony off the master bedroom had a great view over the local area but wasn't sheltered so it got quite hot up there. Wifi was available (via a dongle) which could be topped up at the local shopping centre. An Aldi store was at the top of the road (a 5 minute walk).The local beach was an hours walk which we discovered on the first day! We used Miguel's taxi firm after that to get around, they were reasonably priced and so friendly. The local beach is called Armacao de Pera and has so many shops, restaurants and entertainers. There is food for every palate and the prices were good too. We discovered that the area comes alive at 8pm onwards even young children are out with their families! This explained why most restaurants began serving food from 7pm. We were spoilt by all the ice cream shops and cocktail bars. Highly recommend Pedro's bar, brilliant staff and good valued drinks, they even made us cocktails which we requested. Other favourites were Piccolini pizzaria, Bollywood restaurant, A Lota, N'ice cream dessert bar. If travelling further i would recommend Albufeira old town, Algarve shopping centre and Vilamoura marina.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family & I spent most of May in this great villa and didn't want to leave!

We arrived quite late but were met at the villa and were shown/given all of the info required including a welcome pack of food & drink to get going.

Alcantarilla is an ancient village with a beautiful church, a couple of restaurants and bars. It is in a perfect location for a lot of attractions, golf, beach, water park and Zoo Marine as well as a huge shopping mall at Guia.

The villa accommodated 6 adults +2 children with ease and the pool area was perfect for the whole family.

Thank you so much for a memorable holiday, we hope to return next year.

Best Regards

Barrie & Catherine

Excellent Holiday for all the family

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent, well maintained, spacious villa ideal for a family holiday. The local town of Alcantarilha is a few minutes walk and offers bars and about 3 / 4 restaurants offering great value local fare. A supermarket (about 5 mins walk) means the self catering option is well serviced.

The local town of Armacea de Pera is about 5km away (¢7 by taxi) and is a delightful fishing town that offers a long beach and many restaurants, shops and cafes. We found the town very pleasant to walk round. Definitely check out zoo-marine and slide and splash for days out. Car not required - we managed using the local taxi firms who were very reasonable.

Along with two pools and great weather we and our three daughters had a relaxing and enjoyable break,

Communication with Ashleigh and Stephen was prompt and excellent. Lynn met us at our villa and provided more local information and a few discount vouchers - all in all a fantastic time had by all.

Highly recommended villa

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended villa. This was very clean and spacious villa. Great for family's as pool very safe and security within and around villa also. Aldi within walking distance and no more than a five minute drive or taxi to the beech, zoo marine, water park and local town. Owners put on a welcome pack, which came in very handy on arrival, as we had young children and were able to make a sandwiches e.g. Manager of villa was only a phone call away if ever needed.. Once again highly recommended. We had a great time...Thank you again...

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa was great for a family holiday. The rooms are clean, modern and really large. The plan was to use the villa as a base for several day trips which worked really well as there were loads of places to visit within 15km, but by having your own pool we were able to spend a couple of lazy days at the villa.

Would be happy to go back, thank you.
