“Perfect villa for a family holiday”

I chose this villa because of it's fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and i wasn't disappointed. We travelled as a group of 11 ranging in age from 1yr to 75yrs every single one of us was over the moon when we arrived and saw our accommodation.

For the kids - swings, beautiful swimming pool which can be heated on request. Table tennis, safe outside space to play and a siesta barn for naps.

For the adults - fantastic bbq, pizza oven, lots of space so you aren't on top of each other, two kitchens, spacious lounge and dining room, loads of sun loungers, pool table and a short cab or car ride from all the bars and restaurants you could ask for.

Very clean and with every possible thing you could want provided.

Also an extremely easy booking and payment process and quick response to all questions.

Thank you so much - you made my sister in laws 40th birthday so special and the whole family had a holiday we will never forget. We will be back.

“MOST AMAZING HEN VILLA EVER”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I dont even know where to start , this villa was so much more than i expected, we had rain when we turned up and the front room log burner was lit awaiting for us, we were amazed at how much space there was and was so excited checking out every room. we had a games night where we used the pool table which is incorporated into the dining room table so doesnt take up any space, we had naps in the garden bed in the snug, we had the pool heated for us at an extra cost but it was totally worth it.
if we knew how to work the pizza oven outside we would have ( there is instructions in the villa how to do this, we just couldnt do it ourselves). local taxi company whose cards are up in the kitchen were always helpful (antonio) came within 20 minutes of calling. i cant wait to go back and the communication between the chief bridesmaid who organised it and Brijit the owner was 2nd to none. In a heartbeat i would return, shops are a taxi drive away with old town being my favourite by far for eating and kareoke and new town for the bigger bars, we came out of season so not loads was open but enough to keep us all very happy hens and of course me bride to be. thankyou it has been an incredible spent here and cant wait to visit again

“Everything as we expected with no 'Buts'”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely large villa as described, and a really good swimming pool. A car is needed but a restaurant, garage and a shop are within walking distance. Best food was at the Retiro do Isca, 10mins by car.

“Fantastic villa and place to stay!”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We had an absolute blast here last weekend, Stayed Friday to Monday and cannot wait to go back!
Stayed as a group of 10 friends. The villa is huge and totally amazing. Birgit is so helpful and answered any questions we had. It was a trouble free booking and a trouble free stay.
there is a garage within walking distance and a large supermarket a short cab ride away to stock up.
Tried a local portugese on the first night which was amazing and very cheap.
Second night we got cabs to the old town which is really lively and full of hen and stag parties. Had a great night.
Third night we went to Villamoura which is stunning and was by far our favourite night (We ate at The Mayflower which was the best meal I have ever had!)
Will be booking soon for next year, we were originally going to try different places each year as a group but all decided this will be our go to villa now each year as it was perfect!
Thanks Birgit and Joe xx

“Couldn't have asked for anything else!”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Absolutely brilliant!
Stayed here as a group of 11 adults and a baby, everything you needed was here and the Siesta barn that has recently been built is one of the best additions to a villa I've seen, perfect for those hungover and even better for keeping little ones shaded whilst still being part of the atmosphere.

The villa was ideal for those who wanted to chill out, the pool was large and with the villa being open living there was enough space to spread out but still be together at the same time.

The large supermarket is about 1.5 miles away but there are a couple of small ones to get you by. The local beach is lovely and again around 1.5 mile walk with plenty of quality restaurants that offer for food for all tastes. I'd recommend the car hire that is based in Olhas De Agua and to book when you get there, we got a brilliant deal and got the car within an hour, lovely service! If you do get a car, I'd highly advise driving to the Benagil Sea Cave, one of the most beautiful sights!

If you fancy some water-sports like jet skis, banana boats then the best beach is probably Albufeira, it's a nice beach, busy but still nice. One of the nicest beaches which is about a 15 minute drive away is Sao Raphael, you can get Kayaks and paddle boards from here and it has a really lovely restaurant on the beach too. Ask the owner for the taxi company that they recommend, they're brilliant and the longest wait we had 30 minutes but it was usually there in 5.

Overall it was fabulous and I'd certainly recommend as well as return myself. Another useful tip is to buy some Oranges from the guys from the road, they're from the local Orange grove and they taste amazing!

“Absolutely Amazing”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Birgit was so helpful, promptly answering all my questions and providing a lot of useful information about the area.

The villa is well located for everything we wanted to do, a 10 minute taxi to Albuefeira Old Town and the Strip, shops and the beach in nearby Olhos de Agua, but is in a quiet area so we could just relax by the pool and the siesta barn was a treat!

The villa itself is lovely, very clean and in great condition and looked as good as it does in the photos! There were plenty of UK sockets which was a big plus. It was well laid out with lots of room so you never feel like you're living on top of each other.

Definitely recommend it and can't wait to go back!
