Nice Villa - Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

As to the fact that my english is not that good, I already wrote a german review for the villa, but I try to do it in english as well so that everyone can understand it.

We were 10people all at the age of 19 years who booked the villa this summer. We really enjoyed our stay in Portugal and are happy to be able to recommend the villa, now.

The villa is absolutly big enough for its recommended number of 10 guests and its invetory is very up to date.

The owners are very likeable and will help you with any problems you may have.

The only thing that was a bit annoying is the fact that we had no car (because we arent 21 years old), so that we had to walk the 1.5 miles to the beach/city each day. Anyway, it was ok for us and so after 8 fine days in Portugal, we can tell you, the villa is great, the owners are nice, your stay will be excellent.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect. 5 great size bedrooms, lovely large living/dining space and a beautiful outside space. The pool is very large, with modern large table and copious amounts of chairs and loungers. The barbeque area is awesome and we so enjoyed eating al fresco in this beautiful space. Incredibly close to the centres, beach and shops. You get a lovely cooling breeze from the sea whilst sunbathing around the pool. To top it all, David (the owner) is the nicest man to deal with. Nothing is a problem, he is extremely kind and accommodating. Book this villa, we will be again very very soon x

Nice clean property, very spacious, well presented

  • 5 of 5

We visited from 14 - 21 Jul 2015. The accommodation was very well presented, lots of space and bigger than the photogrphs show. Its in a nice quiet area about 20 mins walk to Praia de Luz. Car is recommended. The pool was excellent with comfortable loungers and the bar-b-que ara was great.

The description on the site is very accurate as well. Communications with the owner was excellent, who provided directions to the property and recommenfdations for hire transport. A folder contained details of local sights, restaurants and other useful information. There was a good stock of books and DVD's etc.

Would recommend a trip to "The End of the World" great views. The town itself was nice with a good beach. There was a Sardine festival held in Jul and Aug which was a great evening out The festival is held over 3 days.

The only minor criticism was the bolier struggles with the water temperature when all 3 bathrooms were being used at once, so helpful tip woule be to spread out your showering times.

All in all a great place to stay, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I would recommend to friends.

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of ten looking for a quiet holiday and the villa was perfect. The pool was large and deep, 2 metres 10 at the deep end, and the facilities were all excellent. It was also very clean when we got there. The couple who look after the villa were very friendly and helpful and provided us with a second freezer when we ran out of room in the first one. The local area is picturesque and very quiet. Would definitely recommend to anyone to stay here.
