Super time.

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this lovely villa. Location perfect and only 15 min walk into town centre. Facilities in the villa were more than adequate and the communication with the property manager Sonia no hassle whatsoever. We will definitely return.

Fantastic in every way, you need to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

What a brilliant villa, had everything we needed for all 6 of us. Spacious, comfortable, with all bedrooms having show-home en suites we were spoiled. The garden is huge and like the house so well maintained. Communications from Peter were always very prompt, and Sonia was so helpful too. Loved the sofa on the balcony, what a view. We all had a fantastic time, strongly recommend this villa , thank you!

The villa was perfect for our holiday. It was in a peaceful position with wonderful woodland views. It was an easy walk into Carvoeiro and the restaurant round the corner from the villa was very good and reasonable.

The facilities in the villa were excellent and the pool area was fabulous. The photos of the villa do not do it justice! Peter and Sonia were great and very helpful. It was very easy to book and deal with Peter and the breakages deposit was return within 48 hours of landing back home. I would highly recommend this villa and hopefully we will be back too.

A perfect Portugal holiday

  • 5 of 5

This villa provided us with the perfect base for our Portugal holiday. Everything was exactly as described with the villa being fully equipped with all that we needed.

Booking with Peter was seamless and his prompt attention to emails was always appreciated. He answered all our questions and made the booking process easy and secure (an important point when you hear about some of the scams on villa sites). Sonia and her team were on hand from day one to make sure we had all that we needed on site. Sonia's warm Portugal welcome and reassurances when we arrived for the first time in her country made us feel safe and well looked after. She even referred to her guests and being "like family".

The location is convenient being in a quiet neighbourhood outside the main town but within walking distance. We usually did the downhill walk to eat in the evening and then took a 5 euro taxi back. If it had been a bit cooler we could have walked but it really was hot.

The villa is well maintained with Sonia and co. cleaning and changing the beds mid stay, the pool man looking after the lovely deep pool and the garden maintained by the gardeners. Compared to other villas in France we have stayed in, it really felt like we were looked after.

Any negative points? Not really. The upside down layout took some getting used to but its fine after a day or so. Minor point was that while the beds were comfy enough, the bedding may not suit all as with the A/C on, a sheet was not sufficient as the rooms cool during the night. I guess I just missed my duvet.

In all, a fantastic first trip to Portugal with great people making this villa a great choice. Thank you Peter, Sonia and team.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Two fantastic weeks. The vilia was as described on the website, it is an excellent base for exploring other locations along the Algarve and provided a total home from home environment where we could relax around the pool and savour the very hot weather that we we had during our stay. We enjoyed a mixture of dining in as the supermarkets provided a great choice of produce and dining out at some very good local restaurants the choice is vast. The service manager, Sonia was simply superb, lovely character, very friendly and helpful, nothing was any trouble and issues were quickly sorted. Finally our thanks have to go to Peter as the service he provided from start to finish was prompt, efficient and professional.
