Why Baltazar D. chose Porches

Excellent weather. Incredible relaxing place with a private swimming pool. The nearby beaches are white sands and crystal waters. Excellent place to relax after playing golf at nearby courses. Also, there are lots of great activities in the surroundings: boat trips, scuba diving, fishing and many other water sports.

Amazing Villa, Amazing Owner, Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we got to our villa, we were met by a local lady who gave us the keys and a quick tour, even though we didn't arrive until 11pm. This was really appreciated. As soon as she let us through the front door, we knew we were in for an amazing week ahead. The villa was bigger than we expected. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and the location was amazing, really quiet with some lovely views. The owner himself was always reachable, before and during our holiday, and always responded quickly to questions or queries. When something was accidentally broken (nothing urgent), a replacement arrived the next day. He was such a lovely man and did everything he could to make sure we had a lovely holiday. This is the first time I have used a service like HomeAway to book a villa (previously booked directly through someone we knew), and this man has given me the confidence to book again. He was so nice.

Portugal itself is a gorgeous country and the locals were very welcoming. There are so many beaches within a 20min drive, probably something like 20, some as close as 5mins away. Highly recommend doing the cave tour by boat down at Benagil Beach, was a highlight for us.

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. Everything about it was amazing. The bedrooms were all a great size, plenty of bathrooms etc, the front room was large with double sliding doors opening out on to the patio and down to the pool which was excellent and the kids spent hours in. The owner was excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. The location was quiet but only 5mins drive to Armacao de Pera and about 20mins to Albufeira. A handful of supermarkets are within 5-10mins drive or so and a couple of waterparks also only 10mins drive away.

We will have to visit Portugal again one day due to the country having so much to offer and a week just wasn't enough. And if we do, we would not hesitate in staying in this villa again. Just amazing....

Superb Villa in amazing location, peaceful and immaculately clean thoughout

  • 5 of 5

On arriving at the villa we were blown away with the position and views. The layout of the house was brilliant. We stayed as a group of nine - parents, kids, sister, brother in law and grandparents and everyone said what an amazing holiday villa it was. We ate at the villa most days and had some wonderful meals together. The supermarkets are very close by but a hire car is a must to explore further a field. The villa is located in an ideal central position between two water parks, ideal for the children. A great holiday in an amazing villa and one I will struggle to beat. Whilst I don't usually return to the same holiday location, I think I will be, as this area of Portugal and the Villa is just AWESOME😀

Beautiful house in the middle of nature in Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 people (4 adults and 5 children < 12yo).

We selected this house because it is far enough of mass tourism of coast cities but close to the sea and its beautiful beaches.

The house is indeed perfectly located (no direct neighboors but all commodities at 5min by car). The house is very clean, well equiped, with a lot of space. We enjoyed a lot the large pool and thanks to the weather we had all our meals outside. The landscape is fantastic.

All our contacts with the owner or the house keeper were nice, clear and helpful.

We definitely recommand this villa.

Lovely modern villa with great pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this villa near Porches.

The villa is a modern style house, well built and maintained, and was very clean when we arrived.

There was enough room for us (4 adults, three kids), it can easily accommodate 8 persons.

The pool is amazing, with a very nice view (even a little sea view).

There is enough shade outside at the terrace.

Inside there is airconditioning in the living room, but not in the bedrooms. With the instructions of the owner to keep the blinds of the bedrooms closed during the day, and with the fans moving air in the evening, temperatures in the bedroom were very managable. Cleaning and new bed linen and towels were provided after 1 week, the pool was also weekly maintained.

The owner is very kind and very quickly responding at emailed questions. Communication about the renting arrangement was very straightforward.

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!
