Excellent accommodation with plenty of space, we originally had 6 of us going but ended up with 4 so more than enough room. All rooms clean tidy and well equipped. The garden and bbq area are ideal and offer great outside space. The swimming pool big enough for us although bit cold when we went in May so couldn’t use to full benefit. The owner was excellent and very understanding when delay meant we arrived at 0230am. Cleaners came twice during our stay. Overall excellent accommodation and would definitely visit again.
We stayed here for three weeks in June/July 2017 and we had a very nice time. The house is in a safe, quiet and nice neighbourhood, away from the parties in Albufeira, but close enough to reach everything you need with a short drive. The Algarve region is beautiful with loads of small towns and beaches, and plenty of activities. We would for sure recommend going for a boat trip to the caves.
With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this is really a spacious holiday house. A bonus with a whirlpool bath tub in the bathroom upstairs! Everything is clean and well equipped. The garden is nice. Not too big, but for us it was perfect. The pool is not the biggest, but perfect for small children, and to cool down on hot days. The temperature in the pool was a bit too fresh for us the first two weeks, but perfect the last week when it was really hot.
The kitchen is well equipped, but at tip for the owner is to maybe leave some oil, vinegar, salt and pepper from previous guests, so that the next guests can refill rather than having to buy everything new. Everything was away when we got there. It might be that previous guests didn't cook at all, but I think at least salt and pepper should be provided in a kitchen.
The owner replies quickly and is very helpful. When we asked in a message on TripAdvisor for an extra key late in the evening (something I think should have been given straight away), it was brought to us straight away. That was excellent service.
The house was cleaned two times a week and new towels provided. That was really great.
We thought the system with the aircondition is strange. I understand that it is not included in the price, since it is not necessary the whole year, but I think it would be better to charge for electricity, than to charge € 10 per day for airco. You have to decide in the beginning of your stay if you need airco or not, and the deal is then that you should pay for every day, whether you use it or not. That's a bit strange as there can be perhaps only a couple of really warm nights during your stay, when you need airco. We ended up with an okay deal with the owner about this, but as I said, an idea would be to charge separately for electricity and include the airco.
There is wifi, but the internet connection is very slow to our standards.
All in all a very nice stay in a house that we would recommend to those who would like to visit the Algarve region.
Rally lovely property, big in size as accommodated 5 adults and 2 children easily. We didn't get under each other's feet at all.
The pool is deceptively decent in size, it's great for some fun with the kids and doing a few short lengths.
Bbq and outside space is amazing, we enjoyed more stay at "home" nights in than initially anticipated.
Old and new town are a short taxi ride away, about 6-8 euros each way, taxi numbers are provided at the villa. There is also a tiny little shop up the road a short 5- 10 min walk away, it doubles up as a bar too so replenish yourself with a beer after the walk!!
We all agreed we would most certainly book here again, there wouldn't be as many of us staying next time however I would look for a smaller one through Nuno. The villas are really luxurious and Nuno is so helpful with communications.
Perfect stay for a big birthday, we had a wonderful stay.
Absolute perfection, we have had a brilliant holiday.
The villa has everything you need, the pool is a good size, bbq, big rooms, all to a very high standard.
One week was definitely not long enough
We will be visiting again soon.
Thank you so much
There was 6 of us in our mid 20's stayed here in late April 2016. Everything about the villa was perfect.
We was met by Nuno's cleaner to check in. The villa is located in a gated residential area which was tidy and quiet. An English couple live next door, our ball was constantly in their garden but they didn't have an issue with this and was very relaxed, we had no problems with them asking us to be quiet etc. I'm sure they are used to this. The kitchen is well equipped, with pots, pans and enough cutlery etc. The bathrooms are clean the bedrooms are roomy with built in wardrobes and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The back garden is fitted with astro turf which was good for poolside ball games etc or lounging out on. Again the sunbeds were comfortable as were the rest of the garden furniture. For those with small children there is a fence fitted around the ball which can be removed if not required
The sofas were good for chilling out on when it was too hot in the sun. There is a large balcony which joins one of the twin rooms and the master bed room. For the safety conscious there is a safe in the master room which can be used. however we felt secure enough not to use it. There is electric shutters on all windows for safety but these helped us sleep through the morning sun. There is space for 2 cars on the drive.
I would recommend getting a car for this Villa but it is not essential. The Old Town is 10-12 Euros in a taxi and the New Town(Strip) is only 6-7 Euros away. We went to the main supermarket Continente which is located just past the Strip. We had no problems getting taxis to and from the Villa. I wouldn't bother trying to walk to the new town, it probably took us 45 mins to an hour on the first day and we just got taxis the rest of the time.
We did not meet Nuno, but took my calls when we could not locate the Villa (my fault, I'd definitely take a sat nav as nothing is particularly well sign posted). Very flexible with our early check out time. Again we checked out with his cleaner. We are already looking at flights for next year and will be intending to stay at one of his villas, I would recommend this villa to anyone.
