A truly amazing villa

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa as a family consisting of 6 adults and 4 children, to say our stay was amazing is an understatement,. The villa itself has everything you could possibly need, the kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are all ensuite with luxurious towels provided and the outside areas areas are a delight with plenty of seating and views over the gorgeous garden areas. Our stay was during the last week in May, the gardens were an abundance of flowers and fruit trees, it was like a mini orchard, with fruits ripe and ready to be picked and enjoyed. The pool area was a hit with the children and adults alike, the pool was a little chilly (no heating) but I’m sure that once the sun heats the pool in summer that won’t be a problem, it certainly didn’t keep the children out of the pool while we were there. All pool towels were provided plus the pool was cleaned on a regular basis while we were there. A car is needed at this location as there doesn’t seem to be anything within walking distance, Alvor is only about a 10 minute drive away where you will find a lovely beach, shops, restaurants and harbour. We also drove to Albufeira, Lagos and Sagres , all within reasonable driving distance. All in all I would say that this villa surpassed expectations and I would happily return with the family again and again. Both David and Joseph, the owners, were always on hand at the end of the phone if we needed anything or if we had a problem, they were always happy to help and nothing was too much trouble, Definitely a villa to be recommended.
