Fantastic week at Villa Quina!!
What an amazing week, where shall i start......After a short flight from Gatwick to Faro we picked up our rental car and found the Villa easily with the directions provided. Due to the secluded location a car is essential.
The location was far more beautiful than we had imagined with views of a prestigious golf course and orange groves. The gardens and the pool were very well maintained and the Villa was spotless. All of the extremely spacious rooms were en-suite with both baths and extremely powerful showers, and all had private balconies. We were spoilt for eating areas, as there was a large dining table inside, and a dining area on the front terrace, and a lovely raised BBQ area with great views for the evening. The villa also had all of the home comforts including a dish washer and a washing machine, and a very nice cleaner who popped in every other day. We have a 2 year old toddler and found the property to be very safe and secure and child friendly.
We spent a lot of time at the Villa relaxing by the pool, and enjoying the BBQ and found food shopping was very easy using the supermarket in Silves which was a 15 min drive away. The Town of Silves was a nice mix of shops and historic sites, the Castle is certainly worth a visit and costs only a few euros. There are a lots of great local places to eat or simply have a drink and watch the world go by, we would particularly recommend the seafood!!
We came across a new local bar/restaurant with great live music about 15 min walk from the Villa along the main road back towards Algoz by the train station, and spent a lovely afternoon enjoying the music and the sun in the large garden. A real gem!!
Going further a field, we had a lovely day at Lagos admiring the Marina and the little boutiques, and a a great day out at Villa Moura which has great restaurants, bars and an opportunity to see how the other half live!!! The Water Park Splash and Slide was a fantastic day, every kind of slide you could imagine and reptile and bird show. It was very clean and a great section for toddlers! There is a slightly closer park called Aqua Land, but this does not open until June.
We are already planning our return trip for next summer and have decided to make it an annual trip. It is such a versatile Villa, that your could spend all your time there just relaxing, or just use as a base to go out and about, i can not recommend the Villa highly enough, and it is amazing value for money. We loved it!!
Owner's Response: We're really pleased you had such a great holiday and look forward to welcoming you back next year!
