                    Perfect villa; perfect location

                    5 of 5
                    Villa Flores is a beautiful villa in a lovely location. The large villa is furnished and maintained to an extremely high standard throughout and especially so when compared to other villas we have rented. Our group was made up of 3 couples and we all had ensuite bathrooms and so no rushing for the showers. Externally we made the most of the heated swimming pool and the sun terrace to sit enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening sun and look across the lovely gardens. A Weber BBQ made catering easy and the sheltered outside dining area is ideal is a great place to eat and sit in the evening. For cooler evenings there is a large lounge with playstation games, television and big comfy sofas. Villa Flores is in a very peaceful location on the edge of the Alma Verde complex and yet only a short drive to local beaches and restaurants. The owner has provided a good list of local restaurants and other local facilities. We would definitely book Villa Flores again.

                    Lovely villa

                    5 of 5
                    We were two families staying in this lovely villa and we had a brilliant two weeks and didn't want to return home. We all loved the pool and the beautiful gardens, enjoying time to swim, play games and finally relax. The villa is very well equipped and the mid stay clean and towel changes were very welcome. It is on a very well maintained complex, which is very quiet, but it is not far into the local towns and beaches. We would recommend the villa and thank you for a great summer holiday.
