  • 5 of 5

A family party of 10 adults ages ranging from 18 to a very young 63 all of whom have experienced numerous villa holidays in Portugal & Spain. Everyone agreed that this was the best all round villa we've stayed in.

Other reviews cover most points, but we'd like to add a few of or own.

Great position for the beach along which you can stroll to Vale do Lobo. There are half a dozen decent and reasonably-priced dining options within walking distance including Mojos bakery & coffee shop opposite the market. There was no noise from the nearby main road and the fresh bread, croissants & doughnuts from Lidl are highly recommended.

The new cabana (not shown on the website photos) is a brilliant addition to the pool area and was used constantly. Enough sunbeds to accommodate all our group and plenty of space around the large swimming pool.

Another addition (also not shown) is the new pool table in the fantastic games area. A major plus on arrival was the availability of all the Sky Sports channels.

We hired bikes from S-Bikes who offered an excellent delivery/collection service and we were able to ride from the villa along Quarteira promenade and on to Vilamoura Marina without too much effort !!

No problem booking taxis when we dined out in Vale do Lobo, Almancil and Vilamoura.

We've had such a memorable holiday that we can't wait to return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fantastic property to anyone looking for a top class villa in a very handy position.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

As mentioned in previous reviews the photographs of this villa don't really capture how beautiful and spacious the property is.

We are a group of 10 made up of 2 families; 4 adults, 5 late teens and an 11-year-old. This villa suited us all with lots to keep everyone occupied and plenty of space to spread out.

The bedrooms are all a good size and all have ensuite facilities. The villa is very well equipped throughout and kept beautifully clean.

Lidl is a 2 minute walk away with the best selection of fresh bread and pastries. There's also a market every Wednesday round the corner and we had a great time bartering for sunglasses, shoes, t-shirts, handbags... you name it, they sold it!

The surrounding area is beautiful, although the villa was so lovely we didn't venture far. We went to Vilamoura a couple of times and had dinner around the marina and also had a great day at Zoomarine.

Elaine was very welcoming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

A wonderful couple of weeks, which we'll definitely be looking to repeat in the future.

Big, Comfortable and amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa with friends. Between us we had 4 children under the age of 10.

The Villa is huge and very comfortable. Everything is so well thought of. The Maid visited once a week and changed our bedding and left us clean fresh towles. The pool man came once a week to clean and check the pool. Kids had suitable child friendly plastic tabelware (so convenient!). The kitchen is well equipped!!

Lidl is just across the road which was very very handy!! A beauiful sandy beach is close by. I would recommend hiring a car esp if you have little ones and you want to visit nearby areas. (Vilamoura Marina - about 10 mins away by car, is beautiful!)

Every wednesday there is a local market few mins away from this villa... we visited it both weeks we were there! Please do try the Marufa 1 restaurant (right opposite the villa)..the chicken is amazing there!!

We had a fabulous time, the kids were never bored in that villa nor were the adults! The games room downstairs is amazing. The bbq area is fantastic!!!

I felt very safe in the villa with our children, the shutters on windows and doors were very reasuring. The gardens are kept well, there is fruit and vegetables growing in it which we were welcome to help ourselves to!

I have nothing negative to say about this property and the service we recieved. Would recommend very highly..esp if you have little ones!! :)

Thank YOU Elaine!

Would definitly visit again!!!! :)

We have just returned home after an amazing 11 days.

The pictures don't do it justice at all. The villa is very well equipped, the outside dining area was fab. Excellent communications with the owners. Can't wait to return!

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

I've just got back from a weeks holiday at this villa and felt I had to write a review,it is even better than the pictures, there was 12 of us and we had a fantastic time, Eileen was there to meet us when we arrived and also when we left she allowed us an extra few hours until we were being picked up which was very kind. It is a massive property with everything you need, I would recommend this villa to anyone thinking about hiring it.the lidl store that is opposite is very cheap and handy, hopefully be back in the future, 10/10 from the pollock family, Birmingham England.

There was some fantastic restaurants near by and would definitely recommend this property to both family and friends.

The beach and quarteira was also a short walk with some fantastic restaurants.
