Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Almancil - Villa Francessca

4 bed, 4 bath, child friendly villa, 15 mins from airport, 4 mins from beach

The villa is 7 years old in a quiet location within easy reach of local amenities. It was built as a second home for the current owners (who have 3 young children) and is fully equipped with mainly English appliances. The villa has full central heating and air conditioning in each room and sleeps between 10/11 people across the 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 of which have en suite facilities. Outside there is a covered eating area with teak furniture that seats 8-10 and a large gas BBQ.

Three sets of patio doors lead to large terraces with a pool of approx 8m x 15m with underpool lighting. The pool is ideal for both young children and adults, being 0.9m to 2.25m in depth; and is fenced off to keep children safe. There are large steps into the pool for young children to play on, and numerous children's pool toys available to use. The large gardens overlook olive groves and there is a gated parking area which means the property is secure and child friendly.

Pool heating & Air conditioning: Pool heating is available at a cost of £180 per week or £30 per day and air conditioning at £140 per week or £25 per day.

Great child friendly villa

  • 5 out of 5
A spacious very well equipped villa for anyone with young children. Our party was 6 adults plus 3 children- 2 under 12 months and one of nearly three.
The living,dining area was excellent with plenty of seating for all the adults and great space for children to play.The bedrooms were spacious with good ensuites and the availability of air con was a bonus. Cots and high chairs were of a good quality- we used a spare duvet as an extra mattress for the cot.
The kitchen was very well equipped and the BBQ excellent- easy to use. Washing and drying facilities were excellent - a must with small children.
The large pool was very child friendly-shallow steps on entry and a large area for safe swimming. Our granddaughter spent entire afternoons playing there.The childrens' fenced area was welcome and the Wendy House a bonus.
The provision of many childrens' toys and books for adults was also welcome.
Shopping was very easy - only 5 minutes into Almancil and the choice of at least 3 good supermarkets.
Giovanni's restaurant is within walking distance and other eating places only 5 minutes away.
Mike, our contact re the villa during our stay, was very helpful.
If your focus is on keeping small children happy and making your life easy this is a very good villa to book.

Superb Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Our 2 week summer holiday to Portugal was all the more special because of this superb villa. The accommodation is extremely spacious, well laid out, has a great sized pool, offers great privacy and yet is only a short walk to bars and restaurants.
The owner was attentive and responsive to our needs and Mike & Lin were on hand locally if we needed anything.
Our son who is wheelchair bound found it perfect also as there was only one step in and out and ample room on the ground floor for all his needs.
It was our first time to Portugal and certainly from this experience will be the first of many.

If you're looking for a fantastic holiday with the assurance of great customer care, a reliable owner and a villa to die for then you'll be hard pushed to find anything better than Villa Francessca.

Amazing holiday pad! Truly recommended...

  • 5 out of 5
This place is a fantastic place to stay at with family or friends. We stayed here for 8 days in August 2013 (forgot to leave the review earlier!) and it was just brilliant. We went as a group of 11, 6 adults and the rest kids including 2 infants. The bunk beds worked well and baby cots are also available at request.

The description of the property is exactly what it says on the tin. Well maintained and well looked after. This place is modern and well recommended.

The owner is great to deal with too and is a UK resident, so we paid by bank transfer here, all above board!

The location of this villa is excellent and good local amenities nearby.

Struggled finding the actual villa, they don’t do postcodes like we do, so made a note of the GPS locations! Sat Nav well recommended!

Finally getting there for anyone else trying to find the villa using a sat nav, might be worth including these GPS locations in your future instructions;

37.081869, -8.053142 or

N37° 4' 54.73", W -8° 3' 11.31"

(Depends on what sat nav you are using - try on Google maps to make sure you’re happy with it)

Everything about this villa is positive but just one this that could do with an uplift is the children’s gated area, we found the lock not working correctly (I'm sure it’s a small fix) which was a bit of a pain with the kids.

Three pin plugs, baby monitors, washing machine and dishwasher were also available which worked out really well.

All in all a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, I'm glad you had a lovely holiday and the villa was what you were expecting. With regards to the gate, I will get that looked straight away. Thanks again and hope to deal with you again in the future. Lois

Great stay

  • 5 out of 5
We were with a group of 9 adults and had a great time during our stay of 5 days in May. The villa is spacious, well equiped and well located between Almancil/Vale do Lobo/Quinta do Lago. Not being located in a holiday park makes the villa more on its own (while still being close to all 'hot spots'), which we liked.

The terrace with outdoor furniture and large BBQ were very nice features of the house as well. Likewise for the many 'private' bathrooms.

Small minus points for the beds in "Bedroom 4" and for not having mowed the grass. Last minor detail, unfortunately the palms on the picture no longer exist.

All in all, we would definitely recommend this villa for groups visting the (east of the) Algarve.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, 5 stars is a lovely rating to get. The beds in bedroom 4 are bunk beds, which suits most people that stay at the villa. We have not experienced the grass not being mowed before and will be making sure it doesnt happen again. The palm trees had to be cut down as they were getting too high and with the high winds in the winter we were concerned of danger to people and the villa. Thanks once again.

Wonderful Family Villa

  • 5 out of 5
This villa is everything the photos promise. It is spacious, well furnished, clean and perfectly maintained. It provides the perfect base for visiting this area. The pool is fantastic for both children and adults. The villa is so easy to get to from the airport and is within walking distance of a great selection of restaurants from small friendly family run to Michelin star rated.

The local towns have lovely markets, beaches, shopping and many, many golf courses !! Easy driving to the water parks and the fabulous Zoomarine park.

There are a range of local supermarkets and the kitchen and BBQ are well kitted out if you decide to eat in.

The beds are comfortable, the bedrooms spacious and the whole villa is light, airy and relaxed, so even with full occupancy there is plenty of room. We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend it for any age group.

Great base for holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in the area for the past 8 years as it allows the guys the opportunity of playing all the great golf courses while the ladies can polish up their tans and as we can sometimes be a large party we always look for 4 bedroomed villas.
The pictures and descriptions on the web site are accurate and we had a wonderful time, the property was spacious & well-equipped .The beauty of this villa is that it is well positioned for Almancil/Quinta/Vale do Lobo & Vilamoura with driving times no more than 5/10 mins

You are close enough to everything especially the Golf courses plenty of restaurants nearby.

The villa has an excellent pool, with enough sun loungers ,plus great size Gas BBQ.

Air con is a must and the system certainly kept the villa cool.

As previous reviews have stated the villa is only 20 minutes from airport.

Due to the Euro/Pound scenario to reduce the cost of our holiday rather than shop everyday at Apolonia we used Aldi which is next to Apolonia for all our alcohol/water/fruit/veg...it certainly helped on cost
