Stayed in this majestic Villa for a week in May. Family of four with two children. First impressions were good, the Villa felt very secure with an automated electric gate out front and ample parking for several cars. The Villa itself is fantastic - a good looking building - it definitely had the 'wow factor'. Immaculate inside, clearly been fully refurbished recently with high end appliances & chic furniture. Extremely spacious with a large dining/living area off the well equipped kitchen. All the bedrooms had air con - we all slept well, the setting was very peaceful.
The kids loved running around and playing in the garden. The whole outdoors area was really well maintained - nice lawned area with a few trees for shade, with a good sized stylish pool and plenty of sun loungers dotted around. There is a raised terrace area with a couple of outdoors sofas and a large table which was great for breakfast and alfresco dining. There was a BBQ, although we didn't get around to using it. Table tennis table in the covered front area was a nice touch too.
The location was the reason we booked. You can stroll into Vilamoura Marina at night and there are numerous restaurants and bars catering for all needs to chose from. During the days we tended to drive out to our favourite beaches and there are some great beach bars only a short (10-20min) drive away - BJ's, Julia's & Sandbanks all seemed popular. Took the kids to the Aquashow Water Park which they loved and was only about 2kms away.
All in we had a great holiday and would definitely consider booking again to explore more of the Algarve in the future.
