"Fantastic Holiday"

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb villa in an extremely pleasant and peaceful area. The host 'Telma' ensures you have everything you need for that perfect break.

There are very good supermarkets and restaurants nearby, some within easy walking distance.

We spent a lot of time in the gloriously large swimming pool and also enjoyed playing pool on the pool table provided - great fun. There are several lovely coves and beaches just a short drive away.

I can't recommend this property highly enough. We've already booked for next year;- which says it all really.

Beautiful villa. Lovely owner.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this villa which is set in a very very quiet spot a short drive from Albufeira to be met by Telma the owner of the villa. She showed us around the villa which was spotlessly clean. It was quite simply stunning. Telma left us and assured us if we needed anything nothing would be too much trouble. A lovely welcome. We had a great time. The weather was perfect for our ten night break. The pool is a good size. The Algarve has all you need whatever you choose to do. Good restaurants to eat out at. Good nightlife. A perfect holiday recipe. Our flight home was a 8.45 pm flight. Telma allowed us to stay at her villa until we had to leave at 5pm to return the car we had hired had to be returned. That really was a bonus extra day to our holiday and extra day by the pool and villa. It said we had to vacate by 10 am, but a call to ask Telma if it was possible to stay beyond that and until later in the day was met with a positive yes of course. You can't ask for more than that. We would and do highly recommend this villa and promise you won't be dissapointed. Do as we did and simply ENJOY!

Such a peaceful corner of the beautiful Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times, but this time our daughter and boyfriend joined us - thankfully they loved the villa and surrounding area just as much as we do!

Telma is a most wonderful host and as she could not meet us on our first day she sent her husband instead - shamefully his English is far better than our Portuguese!

The property is quiet, in a good location with supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance. Restaurants we recommend are O Marinheiro, Sao Domingos, Jompra and the newly opened Kozhina. For brunch go to Docaria Almeixar, right next door to Sao Domingos (0.66 miles from the villa).

This year we have enjoyed watching the goat herder and his goats in the field next door, so therapeutic.

We can highly recommend this villa and Telma is such a lovely helpful person - we have already booked next year's trip - feels like our second home :)

Excellent villa with great facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Villa was great, good sized pool and accommodation of high quality. Telma was really helpful and friendly during our stay. Good location with plenty of restaurants in walking distance and the surrounding areas were beautiful. Thoroughly recommend this villa - we travelled with 3 teenagers and the wi-fi kept them happy!

Vila Duarte June 2017

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 5 staying in June and our expectations of the property were more than met. Telma met with us on arrival and left us with some provisions to start us off, which was a very nice gesture and start to our holiday.

we have stayed in this area for a number of times and in various villa's and this one lived up to the standards we expected. for the price we paid we felt is was extremely good value.

the property is quiet , in a good location, is better to have a car to help with going to supermarkets etc.

would definitely recommend Telma and the property and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Thoroughly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas period and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Telma was brilliant and very welcoming (even leaving us some food provisions) when we arrived. The villa was clean and although it is off the beaten track it is very relaxing and in a quiet area. The villa is 5 or 10 minutes from the beach and supermarkets so you can stock up on provisions so you are not really far away from the amenities.

The pool was very clean and inviting.

Anybody who is looking for a private villa to relax with or without children I recommend this place. You can enjoy the sunshine without the noise around you. Albufeira is 10 minutes away.

Telma recommended some local restaurants which is worth visiting for sampling the local cuisine - fresh fish & seafood!

I give this place a 5 star and definitely I will book it again.

Thank you very much Telma and I hope to see you again in the near future
