Sunset Villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Almancil, the villa was clean and well maintained and we were well looked after. We would recommend this beautiful villa with wonderful sunsets viewed from the large balcony and BBQ to friends or relatives. There is a fabulous pool in the large well maintained garden and a games room in the basement with pool table, darts and table tennis. Locally there is a Go Kart track and several golf courses. A supermarket is just round the corner and Pingo Dolce the large Portuguese supermarket 5 minutes away by car is good value. You can walk to Gamboa's, for good traditional food and very good value. There are many restaurants a short drive away all local amenities described in the folder in the villa. Besides the sunsets our favourite and our granchildrens favourite is the numerous beaches 10 to 20 minutes away. We will be returning next year.

Great place to chill out!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely Villa with friends at the end of August and had the most amazing time, the weather was absolutely wonderful and the villa was really home from home, meticulously clean, with loads of space to spread out, with breathtaking views from the balcony.

We enjoyed the pool with its lovely gardens and opportunity to top up the tan and have a good read!

I visited this area nearly 20 years ago, and it was great to visit places such as Vale do Lobo and Villamoura, and only 10 minutes or so by car, with its sophisticated atmosphere, but also get a real feel of the traditional Portugal being in the Almancil area, where you have a number of good local restaurants, supermarket and patisserie.

I would recommend this Villa for visitors that want to travel around and soak up the Algarve atmosphere whilst being close to the Airport and easy to reach destinations within the area.

A particular highlight was the catamaran boat trip from Villamoura with lunch on a private beach, with stunning views of the coastline!

I would highly recommend this Villa, and hope to be back very soon!
