We stayed for a weeks family holiday at the end of May. The villa is beautiful and very clean, with all the amenities we needed and more. Booking process was very straightforward with good communication from Howard and Manuel the host could not do enough for us. Would highly recommend for a group/family holiday and would definitely like to return at some point, a really excellent experience!
13 of us stayed for 5 nights in April. The booking process with Howard was easy and straightforward. The information before travelling was great. The welcome from Manuel was relaxed and very useful. the cleaners even turned up mid-way through our trip which was welcome.
The villa itself was amazing. So much space, lots of furniture (which you need in a large group) and full of tech and equipment.
About 15 minutes in a taxi from Albufeira Old Town, but there are a couple of really good restaurants nearby and easy of access supermarkets, shopping centres and golf clubs with a car - in fact, you can just walk to Salgados Golf Club. A couple of local private transfer firms can pick you up, quickly, from the villa.
We can't wait to return.
Lovely Villa, well appointed throughout. Plenty of seating, nice pool with really useful children's pool. Close to Albufeira, shopping centre and beaches. Loads of good retaurants and bars nearby. Manuel looked after us very well and was always available if needed.
Having stayed at another of Howard's Villas for the last few years we needed a larger villa to accommodate more of us than usual and also use as the venue for my daughters wedding . At this time Vivenda Lucas was having a total refurbish so we had no photos or opportunity to view the villa prior to booking , all i had was Howard's word that i would not be disjointed and i wasn't . Beautifully refurbished to a high standard with a lovely pool and a nice garden area . Manuel the house manager is fantastic and nothing is to much trouble . I would recommend Vivenda Luca as a great base for the Albuferia area . Thanks to you all
