Wonderful stat

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa, the photos just don't do it justice.

The villa is extremely spacious and well laid out and the owners were very generous by agreeing to accommodate 10 of us. It was also extremely clean and well looked after.

It's location is within walking distance of supermarkets, shops and cafes and a 5 min taxi ride to The Strip or 10 mins to the Old Town. It's also next door to a large golf course for those with that interest.

The added bonus was the wonderful weather which made our stay totally delightful.

Finally not to forget the extremely efficient booking and communication from Caroline and Lorraine. Reassured me from the outset that I made the right choice. I would definitely recommend this villa and given the chance, I'll return again.

Thank you.

Family villa

  • 5 of 5

The description doesn't do this villa justice. Great lay out with all the expected equipment including a lovely pool and gardens. Very close(walking distance to great beaches restaurants and nightlife) but so tranquil, often the only noise we heard other than the children enjoying the pool were the crickets and the cockerel next door. The villa has everything you would need we cooked for nine on 5 of the 14 nights we stayed which is a first usually prefer to go out in the evening but we all loved the villa so much didn't mind staying in. The villa wasn't cleaned during our stay other than the twice weekly towel changes and the weekly bedding changes however I did note that the bathrooms were cleaned which was a lovely touch. Within the first few days I mentioned the fridge wasn't very cold and a few days later a brand new additional fridge freezer was delivered. The owner even arranged for discounted water park tickets. Great friendly service would recomend this villa to anyone wanted a relaxing setting but within a reasonable distance to lively resorts. Would definitely holiday here again.

Stunning villa with fantastic surrounding space.

  • 5 of 5

This was simply one of the best villas we have ever stayed in. Perfect size, great pool and lots of room inside and surrounding the property.

One very slight issue was the fridge/freezer could have been bigger but that aside would come back here in a heart beat.

Also the booking process with Caroline at OwnersDirect was top drawer.

Best Villa Ever

  • 5 of 5

I have had 7 Villas over the last 10 years and this was by far the best we have stayed in, not just for the immaculate condition of the villa itself, but throughout the booking procedure, arrival and meeting the owner there.

This was group of 7 older gentleman who have hard jobs, who wanted to recharge their batteries for 6 days. The Villa is everything described on Web page and more, and the photos don't do it justice. Plenty of room inside and out, enough bathrooms to go around, and what I found was brilliant compared to all previous Villas, enough hot water for 7 people to shower, without the last person having a cold one.

There's a supermarket 5mins walk down the road for your everyday needs, 15/20min walk to the strip, but we found a taxi firm with a mini bus who would take us to the old town most nights for 10 euros, just phone them during the day to book what time suited you. The Villa is set in a very quiet area, with no sounds around you, so you can totally relax with enough sunbeds to go around and plenty of other seating areas there. There is also a shaded area for when you want to get out of the sun. The Kitchen is massive, with everything you need, also iron and other equipment to save you packing extra stuff.

The group have already said about returning next year, it was that good.

Highly recommended if you want to relax, within a very high standard villa

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the villa was wonderful. Everything was taken care of and once we arrived at the villa, we were received by a friendly lady that gave us a short tour around the villa. She also recommended us a few supermarkets, restaurants and other stuff, which was very helpful as we had no clue where to find these shops. The house also has a very useful guide which shows a taxi-service, some top shelf restaurants in both the old and new centre and the do's and don'ts in the Albufeira-area.

As five young adolescents,

we would definitely recommend a stay at the villa!

Villa segunda

  • 5 of 5

What can I say.....what an amazing villa that was a luxury home to all 9 of us ranging from 10 years old, 4 teenagers and 4 adults. The photos actually don't do it justice as it doesn't show the apple, pear, lemon and banana trees in the garden! A large table tennis in the garage was fantastic to keep the kids occupied when too hot as well as the spacious pool! The Vila was spotless to say the least and plenty of room for all 9 of us. We would definitely return to this villa and highly recommend it too!
