About the Owner

I bought the villa in 2007 and spend 2 years restoring it. This villa is a home from home with all luxuries.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi, I stayed in Andrew Villa in 2013 for a week. It was the best week I have ever had and was only sorry I didn't stay for 2 weeks. I was so stressed from work and was looking forward to the break. Renovatio was one of the most serene places I have ever stayed. it was home from home. My husband and Children never saw me so relaxed. The villa, the bedrooms and the pool OMG the pool was so big and I just loved the beautiful Weather. I could recommend this amazing villa highly enough and its beautiful surroundings.

I have booked again already for next year and hope to go over in October with a few friends for a long weekend.

Fantastic Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastically relaxing 10 days at Villa Renovatio.

The villa is beautiful, the views are amazing and the local area has plenty of interesting things to be explored and experienced.

The pool area and outdoor terrace are particularly impressive - both are very spacious with plenty of room for everyone.

We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.

Could have been lovely

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in a wonderful setting. The view from the terrace is lovely, the pool is huge and the furniture and fittings are, for the most part, high quality.

However, these positives were spoiled by the overall neglect of the property and the attitude of the owners.

When we arrived, hot and tired from the journey, we found that we had been given the wrong number for the key safe, no immediate way to contact the owner and no local contact. An hour of working through the combination lock in the midday heat eventually got us in. The house and garden were full of broken and abandoned things; the advertised Sky TV and dishwasher did not work; the owner said there was nothing to be done about this.

The pool-level rooms were unsafe, with exposed wiring, no hot water and an interconnecting door which could be closed but had no handle to re-open it. The cleaner, who was lovely but had almost no English, asked us to pay her, when this was clearly included in the price.

I thought I had found us the perfect villa for our long-anticipated family holiday and the reality was a huge disappointment.

We contacted the owner on our return, sending photographs. He offered us a free week out of season, but this would have been difficult to manage and expensive. We asked for a refund of the payment to the cleaner and the owner agreed to pay this. He has not done so.

If the villa has now been refurbished, it should be lovely, but I would advise people not to expect much of the owner.

Villa in Caldas De Monchique

Breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were very fortunate to spend almost 2 weeks at this place. The most amazing views from it's Terrace. Could look at it every day and never get enough of it. Very comfortable for a fairly big group of people (there were 8 of us). 20-30 min drive to the local beaches and 7 min drive to the nearest supermarket where you can find absolutely everything. Definitely need a car. Wonderful big rooms upstairs but less comfortable and much smaller downstairs. Great kitchen and facilities for cooking enthusiasts. Definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing stay.

I love the area, away from the crowds, but access to golf and beaches, but mostly the amazing views from the villa.

Caldas de Monchique has been renowned since the Roman times as a spa town, where the sulphur-rich warm spring water (it comes to the ground at 32 degrees) is so highly prized that it is bottled at the local source. The spa waters spiritual, restorative and healing qualities have attracted many illustrious visitors over the centuries, including the Kings of Portugal and Italy who came to the region in order to “take the waters”. The villa Renovatio has its own spring source – take the cure by our pool!
