Holiday Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful villa exceeded all our expectations. Our party of 10 which included three generations of the family all enjoyed staying there.

The facilities were great, we had everything we could possibly need.

From the booking of the villa to the end of our holiday was a smooth, friendly experience.

Fab stay

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a fantastic stay in this amazing Villa. This villa really did have everything we could have wanted for our stay. The location is lovely and quiet, which suited us all, being a short drive to the local village which has several restaurants, bars and shops. Its about 20mins drive to the wonderful beaches and the bigger town of Albuferia.

For us the biggest pleasure was the incredible pool and patio area. The pool is massive and for the teenagers in our group the depth allowed for some great diving!!! Deborah and her local management team were a pleasure to deal with both before we arrived and during our stay. Always on hand if we had any queries which they dealt with very quickly.

If your looking for a large villa which is peaceful then look no further. We will be back!!!!!

5 days of absolute bliss!!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at the villa 3 female travellers got very excited and were stund to silence (yes that is a first)! The villa is huge and set in a beautiful rural setting. It's peaceful and private with everything you could need. There was plenty of space and seating and no arguing over sun beds! Didn't even have to get up early to put our towels out. There is plenty to do within a short drive and the convenience store just down the road topped our shopping up as needed. There was a good welcome pack on arrival with all your basic supplies to start you off. It was very clean and very well kept. It had modern facilities and a great bbq. There was plenty of sunshine all day long around the pool area and the pool itself was very well kept and clean and refreshing. Now looking at when we can go back! Thank you for letting us stay.

What a great villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks and were impressed by this luxury villa in a lovely quiet location. The villa is so well equipped, and on arrival we were delighted to find water, juice, wine, bread and eggs provide for us alongside a good supply of essential items. The bedrooms were all beautiful with great en-suite facilities. There was plenty of room for our party (11) and the villa never got too hot. The air-con units are very efficient although as the weather cooled significantly in the evenings we didn't really need it. There are countryside views from the pool, and it is only a short walk to a well stocked village shop. The area has lots to explore and we would recommend it to anyone looking for luxury accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts. The property is supported by a really helpful and friendly couple who are on-hand to deal with any queries.

Perfection in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, great location, absolutely spotless when we arrived and the pool was just fantastic. For a family reunion it was the perfect setting. Loads of room for eight people and even ten would be no probelm at all.

The kitchen is massive, well stocked with everything you need to cook and loads of fridge space for wine and beer! The bedrooms and ensuites were exceptional. More than enough space everywhere.

The villa is close to two local bars where the (local) people were very friendly and language was no problem. It's a short 20 minute drive to the retail park in Albufeira if that's what you want but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of rural Portugal.

The villa was far better than we expected and we'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't want the hustle and bustle of the coast and tourists.
