A lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Maria was everything it said it would be!

Elsa was very welcoming and clearly a very proud and hands on owner. Elsa left no stone unturned to the point that on arrival there was beer, wine, water, provisions in the fridge and a big bowl of fruit to greet us.

The villa is beautifully appointed and very well equipped!

All rooms are extremely tastefully decorated and have Elsas very personal touches.

Everywhere was clean and tidy and there was an abundance of clean towels!

The maids were very friendly and helpful and looked after us as if we were the owners!!

The pool area was clean and there is plenty of quality sun loungers [ no plastic in sight ]!

There are lovely seating areas both in the garden and inside.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa!

My only criticism was our 10 day stay went far too quickly!!!!!!

Convenient, good location

  • 4 of 5

Elsa was very friendly and helpful. The house has a great location for access to st raphael beach and restaurant and equipped with everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Two things worth noting:

We opted for the heated pool but unfortunately in mid-march it took 5 or 6 days for it to be warm enough to swim (22 degrees).

Only cash is accepted so be prepared - we weren't and had to fo multiple trips to cashpoints due to limits on single withdrawals.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review on Villa Marie Its was a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the 2 points you mentioned " worth nothing" let me justify for the other guests to understand it correctly Heated pool - It was On for your arrival but did not anchived the correct temperature max 25º due to the fact of very cold nights by that time, which we have the reccords of 5º degrees weather temperature, which was not the usual for Algarve. As explained on your booking, the pool has no cover during the nights so by early mornings we could not expect the pool water temperature to be 25º. In conclusion aand as we did understood the cold wave in Algarve, we did not charged you for the heated pool, but the heated pump still working till your check out date. Breakage deposit and Final Balance on arrival - since the first enquiry we inform our guests that breakage deposit is compulsory on arrival in cash, also wirtten on the booking contract form. If the guests are also due to pay the final balance on arrival, that must be in cash , as written on the booking contract. We tried our best to have the same rules for all guests, thats why the reason of a booking contract between the owner / guest. We hope to see you soon in our villas, as we think you enjoyed very much your stay Kindest Regards

Very good...

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our holidays very much. The house is fantastic, even better than the pictures show. With lots of space, very nice decoration and with all the equipments described. Near to S. Rafael beach (10 minutes walk) the house has also a wonderful exterior terrace, with a fantastic pool. Elsa was very useful and all the problems were solved immediately. I certainly recommend this house, especially to big families with children.

Perfect Holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults 4 kids) stayed here for a week in early May. What a fantastic time we had. The Villa, location beside the beautiful Sao Rafael beach, several great restaurants and the warm sunny weather all made the perfect holiday.

On arrival Elsa who was in charge of the villa was so kind and helpful. The villa itself was immaculate, beautifully furnished with every modern convenience you could wish for. Outside the pool area was also so comfortable, perfect for relaxing. Unfortunately after a week we had to leave but will definitely book this villa for next year. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Beautiful Villa, near the Sao Rafael beach

  • 4 of 5

We were two families, with a total of five children, staying at the Villa. There were more than enough space for us! The villa and the pool- and garden area was great! The listing description was accurate, and the property was clean, and well maintained. Elsa, at Algarland, was very helpful, and made our stay even better. She really provided exellent customer service! We loved that the villa was so close to the Sao Rafael beach! We would recommend others to visit the Zoomarine park. There you will find a large variation of activities! We would recommend this property to our friends and family!
