Guestbook comments from the owner

Have never spent time in a better villa - the best by far! Everything you need, amazing views. So much space, we had 10 people and struggled to find everyone. We will come back.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa Anreca was amazing. It was just perfect, clean spacious you had everything you needed. The photo's doesn't show the amount of space you have. The pool area was again amazing. I cannot think of a better word to describe the villa itself. It's a short walk to the village, which has good restaurants The Dolphin was very good, two supermarkets with good choices. Carole Ann the owner was more than helpful providing info when asked. All in all a great holiday at an amazing villa. Thank you Carole Ann for sharing your villa I plan to return.

Paradise in Praia

  • 5 of 5

We as a family spent a week at Villa Arenca and have to say it was an absolutely top-notch facility. The owner has all bases covered and everything about the place was first class. Stunning views from the second floor terrace made for a beautiful backdrop to al fresco dining aided by a great barbeque over coals. The heated swimming pool and spa soon converted the most reluctant of water babes and grandparents splashed around merrily with their grand-children making for great photo opportunities.

Set in a quiet residential area around 30 minutes at a gentle walking pace from the centre of Praia it's ideally situated and as the local supermarket actually delivers you don't even need a car. We took a taxi to the more popular resort of Lagos at reasonable rates and generally found getting around easy.

All in all a definite recommendation from the Hughes family.
