Fantastic, modern, with ideal layout for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our first self-catering, non-package holiday so a little apprehensive on what to expect. On pulling up to the villa and walking inside we were more than happy with our choice! Couldn’t have asked for anymore in regards to the cleanliness and layout of this modern well looked after villa. We stayed as two families, with 5 children of various ages and it was ideal for all. It’s single floorplan layout allowed easy viewing at all times of the little ones despite the large footprint of the Villa and grounds.

It’s secure and well maintained inside and out, with a large infinity pool which is cleaned and checked every few days.

Inside is a well laid out kitchen area with more than enough cutlery and utensils to make cooking in for the night easy enough. The lounge / dining area is spacious with A/C which is a very good unit, quick to cool the room even on the hottest of days.

All four bedrooms were clean and spacious with ensuite and main bathroom designed to a high modern spec. It took a couple of nights to get used to having fans and not AC in the bedrooms but keeping the roller shutter in the room down in the day helped. After a couple of nights we were more than fine with this and wouldn’t see this as an issue to anyone concerned.

We managed the 2-weeks without any hire car! It’s about a 20 mins walk turning left out of the villa into Porches town centre which is a very straight forward walk and flat! Or turn right and about 30 mins into the next village although a few more hills to tackle! Towards the end of the holiday we found an English mini bus driver who was reliable and would pick up direct from the villa at short notice (we got his contact details from the landlady at Black Dog English pub in Armacao de Perra).

We tried out the horse riding which is 5 mins walk as you turn right out of the front gates of the villa, really good and helpful staff and reasonably priced. Also the Splash Land water park which is about a 15 min drive was a great full day out. There are two water parks within a 20 min drive of the villa, the other looked slightly more geared to the older kids with bigger rides.

We are now looking for next year but struggling to find a better villa for the price and location. Although normally we would be opposed to going back to the same place twice, it’s looking likely we will be back here again next year which is testament to how highly we rated it!

Spacious, clean,well situated, family sized villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine (five adults, four children) had a fabulous time at this beautiful, modern villa. The setting in the valley and views are fantastic, not overlooked and very peaceful. The pool, which we all spent a lot of time in, is clean and large. We have been on a number of villa holidays and this pool is the cleanest we have ever had. The villa is extremely spacious inside and out and had everything we needed. This is an excellent place to either spend the majority of your time in, or a base to explore the many local beaches and towns as we did. A car is essential, the local supermarket is only a few minutes car journey and has everything you will need, Amarcao de Pera beach is a few minutes further along and you can get to places like Carveiro is less than 15. The owner is very proactive, helpful and responds to any requests promptly. He has real pride in what is a family villa as well as one he rents out. Overall, a fantastic villa, well recommended.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Superb from the moment you enter through the gates. The design of the villa is modern, well maintained, immaculately clean and well equipped. The owner is very helpful and was quick to rectify and in fact replace a faulty dishwasher. It is suitable for a group of Adults or families with older children. I could not really fault this villa and can't wait to return in future years.
