Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent family holiday here during August.

The Villa is well appointed and the views are stunning.

The local area is very nice and although the beaches are a car journey away they are really stunning.

We found overall that the listing was accurate and the layout and facilities were exactly as described, the property was very clean and overall well maintained.

The owners were very easy to contact, and when we did have a small problem (not the villa's fault) they responded very quickly.

Thank you for a great holiday!

Great villa, amazing views, perfect service!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many properties over the years and this property goes straight to the top of the list!

Very comfortable villa with equally comfortable rooms and beds!

Most bedrooms, the large balcony, the pool area, the badminton court, children's swing, garden dining table and the pergola covered dining table (with 2(!) large bbqs) all feature the spectacular (nearly 180º) view of the sea, Faro and Olhão.

The villa is located on a quiet hill but is minutes away from the centre of Faro and beaches. Shops are also nearby. A car is highly recommended though!

The owners were very quick to respond when we had a question about the alarm system and the remote controlled gate and were very helpful.

Also great that the nice kitchen was very well equipped and that there were toys and pool gadgets available for our little one to play with.

All in all we had a wonderful time at Vila Mara and we will definitely be back!

Beautiful property with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The property is a beautiful and large house set in wonderful gardens. The view over the sea is spectacular and it is a great pleasure to sit on the terrace, day or night. The house is very comfortable and extremely-well equipped (everything you need in the kitchen). The different levels give it a lot of charm. The bedrooms are well located on each side of the house, which allow for two families to have each their own area. Beddings are very comfortable. The house is set at the top of a hill. Several secluded areas with tables outdoors allow you to enjoy drinks and meals in different settings. There even is an area for playing badminton or « pétanque » and a swing for children. All with this wonderful view over the sea. It is located less than 10 mn away from the village of Estoi. Several beautiful beaches are at a short distance by car and the town of Tavira (30 mn) is wonderful and so charming. A car is indispensable. Thank you to the owners who, despite the fact that they were in the Netherlands, were very helpful and reactive. We had a wonderful time at Villa Mara and we hope to be back at some point.

The best of times!

  • 5 of 5

We've had the best of times af villa Mara. The house is encredible comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen, the outdoor kitchen, the BBQ..... and several terasses to eat all you've cooked!

Also, the house is very child friendly, with the pool at a 'lower' level kids can play safely in and around the house. And there are swings! And toys! And waterbeds!

Contact with the owners was very pleasant and they were extremely helpful to answer any question. We definitely recommend villa Mara and hope be back ourselves someday.

Beautiful and great owner

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. The whole place is beautiful, completely serene and full of everything you can need to have a great, relaxing holiday.

The swimming pool was excellent and got the sun all day and into the evening. There are various areas to enjoy meals, relax in the evening with a drink or just to go and read a book.

The villa is close enough to a town that if you want to eat out, it is easy but also far enough away to really get some peace and quiet.

Finally, the owner could not have been more helpful. I left my wallet at the property after leaving and she arranged for it to be sent back to me and was also very flexible about arrival timings.

Best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a hidden gem.

This villa has it all. A fantastic view, a large pool, and jeux de boules area and many areas where you can sit in the sun or shade.

It is very compfortable and with the best BBQ view ever.

Also very comfy beds and large dining table(s).

We have really enjoyed it and we will go back again to this villa for sure.
