Villa Barrocas is a super house in a wonderful location, just far enough out from the Marina (20min walk with young children) to be peaceful, private and undisturbed, but close enough to walk to all the amenities you might need and the nightlife.
The property is hugely spacious and set in a fantastic plot with ample garden and well-sized pool which is completely fenced off.
Nearby there's a coffee shop (great coffee, toasted sarnies and fresh pastel de natas!) and mini-mart with most things you'll need for any small family but the supermarkets are only a 5-10minute taxi. A great little road-train regularly goes from the nearby Hilton Hotel down to the beach and the marina which all the children absolutely loved riding on.
If you're after a family holiday with a bit of peace and quiet thrown in (!) then I would thoroughly recommend. The booking service was seamless and we had guidance throughout which was reassuring. more
