We were so delighted to have chosen this villa .It was immaculately clean and well maintained. Pool area fantastic for us with 5 kids to entertain! The location was ideal.,so central for beaches ,waterparks and restaurants. Telma who greeted us upon arrival was so helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Definitely will be making a return visit. Back to reality for now .Thanks for everything Telma

Great property and owner

  • 5 of 5

We cant' praise Telma enough!! She was so sweet, helpful, kind and gave good advice and said we could phone her at any time for help. A welcome package of milk, water, coffee, bread, butter, cheese, fruit etc was left ready for us which was a nice touch. The property is as described. I was worried that perhaps the bathrooms and kitchen were outdated as there are no photographs, but you can see that some work has been done to keep these to a good standard. The TV is also modern with some English channels. The pool is fantastic with plenty of room with a nice seating area outside on a terraced area. There is also a pool table which proved very popular with our family. The best beaches nearby are Coelha, Gale, San Raphael and Arrifes all within 10mins drive. ideally you do need a car, but you can walk, if it is not too hot, to a few local bars and restaurants. I would however recommend a hire car as this villa is in a semi rural location and it makes getting about much easier, unless of course you like to walk. Our favourite restaurants were O Marinheiro, Mr Singh, and Nelson at the Coelha Dois (low key but good food and service). I would definitely like to return to this villa and the area. The people are lovely, weather is fantastic and the beaches very beautiful. You will find Telma the most helpful and accommodating owner to deal with.

Telma the owner was exceptional, from start to finish her hospitality and genuine will to make sure we had a great holiday was just fantastic. Me, my wife and my 4 kids had an amazing, fun, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great location with the most beautiful beaches. Praya da Coelhia is amazing and one I jogged to every morning. Well done Telma but then again I found every Portuguese people so friendly & welcoming. We are thinking to rebook again and so are the many friends & family I spoke to and show our pictures.

Just What We Were Looking For...

  • 5 of 5

The villa is just as described on the website & the pictures give an accurate representation. There are two twin rooms on the ground floor and a double bedroom with en suite and terrace upstairs. All have air con.

The south facing garden is a real sun trap and very private. The covered terrace overlooking the pool offers welcome shade. The pool is fabulous although the shallow end drops away quite steeply to 2.4m.

The location was perfect for us. One villa opposite but otherwise totally private in a rural setting, yet only a 5 minute drive to Gale beach or Guia. 15 minutes gets you to Albufeira. A car is essential. There are supermarkets, pastelarias and restaurants within easy reach at either end of the road on which the villa is situated.

Owner, Telma, made us feel very welcome and is very helpful. Although we never needed to call on her, I got the impression that nothing would be too much trouble and she called us a couple of times to ensure everything was ok.

I would not hesitate to stay here again, I just hope we get the opportunity!

Wonderful villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa four years ago for one week, but the company we booked it with went bust. We were overjoyed to find it on this website. We enjoyed our fortnight in 2015 so much we have booked again for 2016. Telma is a lovely owner and a pleasure to do business with. There are lots of nice restaurants in walking distance so you don't have to use a car all the time.
