Overview

About the property

Private Villa in Vilamoura, Central Algarve, Portugal Private Gardens, Pool, BBQ, Pool Table, Tv/DVD, Air-con , 10 Mins Walk To Beach, Marina

'Superb location' catering for large groups of adults and families looking to celebrate together.

The Luxury Vilamoura resort area offers a fabulous diversity of experiences, from the quiet pine forest ambles and Atlantic beaches, to the glamorous Yacht Marina, casino, shooting club, tennis club, riding school and a choice of nightclubs.

The main attractions are the marina, beach, many pga standard golf courses and Aquashow water park. The area's past is brought to the forefront with a preserved Roman site and the Museum of Cerro da Vila.

This traditional 1970's villa is the closest privately owned villa to the marina making the shortest possible walk to the marina, town, shops and restaurants.

It is set in beautiful south facing gardens with its own private pool (not heated), Sun loungers, Charcoal BBQ, & 3 terraces overlooking the pool.

There is also a pool table, 2 lounge rooms, Tv/DVD, PS3, wi-fi and air-con in every bedroom.

The local golf courses are all within a 1km radius (5 min car/taxi ride).

Transport/Transfers can be organised.

We do not recommend young children use the basement level as the interior staircase is very steep.

Please also note the swimming pool is not fenced off and there is no lifeguard, the pool is used at your own risk so children / non swimmers will need to be supervised at all times.

Also please check photographs and be aware 1 bedroom in the basement is self-contained and doesn't have a window.

The villa sleeps 17 ppl in standard beds, and a further 4 people in 2 X double sofa beds so that makes our 21 person recommendation.

Bedroom 1 = King (ensuite)

Bedroom 2 = King + single (shared family bathroom)

Bedroom 3 = twin (shared family bathroom)

Bedroom 4 = King + single (ensuite)

Bedroom 5 = twin (shower room in corridor)

We also have 4 travels cots and 2 highchairs available but please bring your own bedding for the cots due to risks associated with SIDS we do not provide these.

Superb stag accommodation for 14 30 yr old wannabe20yr olds..

  • 5 of 5

Myself and thirteen friends have just returned home yesterday from a fantastic stay at the villa.

Having been charged with organising this I can only say it was a real pleasure dealing with Victoria (who was available at the drop of a hat even though she was pregnant and probably had little interest in me asking silly questions!)

Having given us nunos information for transfers it was a pleasure to see him standing in the airport and after the 20ish min drive to villa the biggest problem we had with the villa was squabbling amongst ourselves to get in the pool quick enough. Having napped the penthouse Myself and the stag were obviously well impressed as were every other guest that stayed. The rooms were all very clean very air conditioned and the vast number of fridges were exactly what we needed for when we stocked them with all sorts. We didn't use the bbq area as the chicken shop across the main road we found was lovely and didn't want to make the villa a mess with 14 blokes cooking a BBQ but I can imagine it would've been great.

The location of the villa was brilliant and after a night out the ten minute walk home seemed to sober us up...

Thanks for all your help Victoria , victor and nuno . Having taken 24 hours to sober up the Genaral consensus was that everyone had a fantastic time and I got a lot of praise for organising so I am well pleased with that considering you guys did all the hard work.

I think we will revisit next year with the wives and girlfriends and indulge in that pool and villa with far more relaxation as the primary objective!!

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this lovely villa (15 in total all ages from 15 to 75 ) which is in a great location in the lovely resort of villamoura . The villa is spacious and well equipped for cooking , there is a bbq hut in the garden which we enjoyed and the pool is fab hours of fun ! Plenty of sun beds . There is a roof terrace which has great views . This villa is ideal for family's with teenagers as there is a basement with 3/4 bedrooms which opens up onto the pool area which has a pool table . We put all the teenagers down there which was great as they can be noisy and came home later than us at night ! The villa is a short walk to the marina which is amazing and we strolled down most nights for a cocktail or two ! There are lovely restaurants around the marina and lively bars ! Victor was great he met us there on day 1 and he was really helpful I rang him several times during our stay and he even bought us water park tickets round ! I can't think of any negatives about this villa or resort and I would highly recommend it to family's , girls holidays etc . We did find the local spar a little expensive so got a taxi to lidl to stock up which I would advise . Also the aquashow water park is well worth a visit and only a very short taxi ride . All in all we have all had a brilliant holiday and would be happy to return again .

Great holiday for our large group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 16 family, extended family and friends. There was plenty of accommodation and resources - kitchen equipment and utensils, tables, chairs and sunbeds - for everyone to be comfortable. The gardens, grounds and pool are particularly attractive. The beach and the Marina are a genuine 10 minute walk from the villa.

Would thoroughly recommend the villa for a large group who want to be together but at the same time have individual space.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back today after spending 10 days at the villa. From the very start Victoria couldn't have helped us enough, with all the questions we had she was extremely helpful which put our minds at rest.

The villa itself could do with updating, it felt run down in places but overall it was a perfect size to accommodate 10 adults, 4 children and 4 infants. We had plenty of room amd in no way did we feel we are on too of each other. We all had our own rooms with our own bathrooms. The pool area is amazing, the kids loved it although i would say it's not ideal for children as they could stand up in the shallow end. They did enjoying jumping off the steps though. I would suggest having a baby pool as there was plenty of room in the garden. The grounds are lovely and lots of area with shade as we were concered about that before we got there. The BBQ area was fab, we enjoyed 2 while we we're there, along with music which you can play around that area. The villa is really close to the marina and supermarkets, only a short walk. The taxi company (nuno) were fantastic, couldn't have done enough for us also Victor was on hand for anything we needed. Overall a fantastic holiday which suited all 18 of us.

The best break ever!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this stunning villa for my hen do with 11 friends. I could not not have picked a better place. I was worried that it looked too good to be true but it delivered on every level.

Firstly, the booking was simple and i had great communication from Victoria the owner who answered any questions i had promptly.

The villa is only a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport and so close to the shops and the marina that you dont need a car if you are planning a relaxing break.

The villa is super, gorgeous outside area and lovely spacious rooms with everything you need including wifi if you need it.

We loved lounging by the pool and walking around the marina trying out the sangria and local food which is delicious.

The weather was perfect - in fact the whole stay was perfect.

All 12 of us want to go back and miss it so much!

Thank you so much everyone!

A great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, from the moment we booked, the communication with Victoria was first class. Not only around the property itself, but also helping to arrange transfer with Nuno (thoroughly recommend, we used him almost every day with airport transfers, golf and the water park!).

The property itself is in a good location, close enough to the beach (15mins) and marina (10mins), as well as across the road from Spar supermarket, Chicken de la villa (worth a visit for a takeaway meal!!) and also a couple of other small bars and restaurants. If you're in Vilamoura for golf, the villa is within 10mins from all of the Oceanico/Dom Pedro golf courses.

The villa is uniquely laid out, with a lot of options on how to have the rooms set out. There was 18 of us but we probably could've got another couple in quite comfortably.

The rooms all equipped with air con and contain everything you would need and the beds are quite comfortable. My only comment is that the rooms could do with a fresh coat of paint but i'm being picky.

The communal areas (kitchen, lounges, balcony) are large enough for everyone to be there if needed, we had a number of dinners on the ground floor balcony as we made use of the bbq. The kitchen contained all of the things you would need, there were plenty of plates, cutlery, glasses, etc as well as a few fridges and freezers and some portable freezers too, which we didn't make use of but was a nice touch. We also ordered our food online via Continente in advance which was a great suggestion (thanks Vic!) which meant we arrived at 1pm and the food arrived about an hour later, so no having to carry heavy bottles of drink, etc from the supermarket.

The pool was clean but did appear a bit murky towards the bottom, not that this discouraged anyone from using it. There were also plenty of sunloungers, no need for anyone to wake up at 5am put towels out!

The garden areas are well kept and there is plenty of space for the kids to run about as well as being very secure with fencing and a number of large trees which meant there was always somewhere shaded for those who wanted some time out of the sun.

We did have a small issue where the basement shower flooded but Sergio came out with 30mins of us ringing Vitor and fixed everything, so absolutely no complaints there!

Thoroughly recommend this property, we're already talking about coming back next year and some of the group aren't easily pleased! Thanks again Vic, we had a great holiday
