Green/Dumigan family stay 5th-12th October 2010.

Greeted by Raul and shown around villa. Villa was immaculate and equipped with everything you could ever need including a table-tennis table and home-grown camomile tea. Villa very secure with lockable gates. Rooms very spacious and nicely decorated. High chair and Travel cot available for use and no charges for air-conditioning. Beautiful pool area with loungers overlooked by a balcony area with plenty of room to sit. Pool cleaned regularly by the homeowner who happens to be a pool guy! BBQ area which has plenty of lighting and plenty of outside seating areas. Beautiful position with a supermarket nearby and the main road to Faro/Portimao just 2 mins drive away. Maxm of 10 mins away from Zoomarine and Albufiera. Could not have wished for better, will be back! many many thanks Raul!

Beautiful villa. Extremely clean and tidy. Everything you need is there. Fantastic welcoming pack was much appreciated along with the awesome almond cake made by Raul's wife. Lovely swimming pool. Very private and peaceful. Bbq area and patio were great. Can't fault it. Looking forward to returning next year . Supermarket at bottom of road . Raul was there to greet us in the early hours of the morning . He was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely man.

Great Villa for the Price

  • 4 of 5

Great Villa for the price, very large, pool is big and great for my three boys, 3 bathrooms, specious bedrooms and lounge, Raul was very helpful.

Extra things you might find helpful:

Hairdryers in every bathroom

Flat Screen TV

You need a car to get to places like Albufeira but we booked one early so quite cheap or you might be braver than us an negotiate the bus time table.

The beaches near by are great not very busy even in July/August

Algarve shopping center is massive and about 15 minutes away they even have an Iceland if your kids are picky.

Couple of bars near by about 15 minute walk one is a Poka (pokemon) stop so the boys were happy.

Had a great time ideal for families or couples who want to a quiet relaxed holiday, but with the option to go to many water parks etc.

Outstanding Villa. Best value for money in the are

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of the villa. We were greeted by Raul and shown around. He was most welcoming and we were even given an almond cake made by his wife. Very tasty! A car is essential but the beaches and old town are only about a 5 minute drive. There is no doubt that we will definately return to this delightful villa and the welcoming Raul.

We had an excellent stay at this villa. Our 4th time.

The Villa has everything you need and so clean and very well maintained.

Raul cannot do enough for you and is always on hand if you need anything.

Just a short drive away from the old town and in a very quiet area of Vale Parra.

Views are brilliant and so is the sunset from the balcony.

We are looking forward to returning next year.
