September 2011 Getaway
Villa Julieta do Mar suits family, couples and also singles. Imagine, this villa catered for the aforementioned categories in the same holiday! We (6 adults and one infant) are home from our vacation nearly a week now and all wish to return to Villa Julietta at some point in the future.
It is spacious overall, bedrooms are a comfortable size, kitchen equipped with all necessities and more, 3 bathrooms a comfort, and for BBQ lovers there is a nice garden spot for catering. The swimming pool area is cute and importantly private with plenty of room for our group size.
As regards amenities..... A supermarket is within walking distance. Gale beach is a 10 minute pleasant walk. Although Sao Lourenco beach is right beside the villa, Gale beach was our preference as we found a beautiful almost private beach to lie on sun loungers and appreciate the high tides whilst we were there. Villa Julieta is close to a quality Indian restaurant and also a fish restaurant. It is also close to a quaint little cafe. There are more, however, we chose BBQ's and Albufeira for the remainder of the week. As for the busier nightlife and a bulk of restaurants, Albufeira is a mere 10 minute taxi ride away. The 'Principal Office' gladly provided a taxi contact with whom we had no trouble in commuting to Albufeira. I would advise having a taxi contact for commutes to Albufeira.
We had the comfort on knowing we could contact the 'Principal Office' should an issue occur, however Villa Julieta was so perfiect that we had no need to. Our only need to contact was to confirm taxi times for our reluctant return to Faro airport!
Thank you Villa Julieta for our memorable holiday. Our batteries are recharged thanks to you !
