“WOW! Fantastic villa and holiday”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Found this villa quite by chance searching for a place for me and 18 family members to stay (yup - 18 family members...).

From the outset, the owner was very honest and helpful all through the booking process and leading up to the holiday. The management company looking after the villa were fantastic - meeting us there late on arrival and then regular meetings / calls to ensure everything was going well – I got the impression I could call anytime with any question and they would be there – brilliant service.

The villa itself is just incredible. Finished to an excellent standard with great facilities and plenty of room and space for everyone to spread out.

It's about 15 min walk to a Santo Estevao - a small village with bar / restaurant / SPAR sized shop / chemists / cafe / church. A 15 min drive / taxi into Tavira - a delightful large / small feel town with everything you need. The taxi service from the villa to Tavira cost around 12 Euro's each way, and the drivers are great - didn't have a bad experience in two weeks.

Back to the villa - pool large enough for everyone to get in. Gym / sauna / steam room etc. Fantastic cinema / play station room. All the bedrooms are en-suite and all the en-suites are immaculate. All bedrooms have free-view tv and air-con. All the bedrooms are a good size, however the master bedroom is HUGE. Other facilities include large football pitch (we played five-a-side more than once). Basketball net. Volleyball net. Table Tennis. Pool table. Trampoline. Effectively the kids were never bored.

Two large screen tv's (one in the large lounge and one in the large games room) both with Sky TV.

The kitchen is very well stocked and very big - the pictures do not do justice to it at all - easily enough prep / storage / cooking space for 20 and no shortage of cutlery / plates etc for everyone. Amply seating to get everyone around the table outside near the large BBQ for meals.

The airport transfers as recommended by the owner were excellent.

Also, at the owners advice, we had in a local chef to cook us a meal (for 19), serve it, and clean up afterwards - it was easily the best 20 euros per head we spent all week - so much so we had him in twice. The food was excellent and he and his wife were really decent people.

In summary – you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere better for 20 people. An amazing villa tucked away in a nice quiet spot but not completely isolated. You’ll need a car for runs to the supermarket but the taxi service is excellent. I cannot recommend this place highly enough for a large family / friends holiday.

“Fabulous stay, enjoyed by all the family, perfect for large groups.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the Villa in July for 2 weeks and had a fabulous time. The Villa is wonderful, and the facilities cater for all ages. The bedrooms were all comfortable, with excellent showers / baths and good air con when the nights got hot. The facilities are excellent, the pool, the sports room, the cinema room and the gym are great places. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed the BBQ too.
The quality of the Villa is 5*, and despite having 3 generations of family tp please everyone had a place they could find, be that a place to read a book or a place to drink and be merry.
We would recommend a car, as although it is lovely and quiet you need to go into Tavira (10 mins away) to enjoy its excellent restaurants and bars.
If you are golfers looking for someone to stay then you are close to the A22 and all the major courses are within easy reach.
The Villa is a wonderful place to stay and the owner and management company is very helpful and friendly. I would recommend the Villa without reservation and from someone who always travelled West from Faro in the past can urge you to try East as Tavira is a lovely place.
When I spoke to friends and colleagues about where we were going I was surprised how many had stayed in or visited Tavira and how positive the feedback was. Now I can only endorse what I was told; Tavira is a lovely Town and full of very good restaurants and bars.

“Blissful Villa”
Reviewed 13 November 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

In a fantastic setting, kitted out with all mod cons of a 5 star hotel. Yet when you work out the price per person per night it's amazing value for money. Due to the size of the plot and villa even with a big group the villa still seems spacious with plenty of different rooms to accommodate different activities, watching sky, playing pool or having a sauna/steam/ jacuzzi! The outside seating area by the pool is fabulous on an evening, so peaceful even with children in the pool and having a bath outside feels so decadent. The centre of Tavira is close by but there is also a great restauant in the village, think its called 'Forno' who also do take aways but not as we know it....lamb chops and a local speciality with wild boar which must be ordered the day before. A fantastic stay of which our blissful memories will always remain.
