                        We had a great holiday. The villa was really well equipped, well maintained and very comfortable. Having the heated pool was a real bonus as the first couple of days were a bit blustery (as you would expect in early spring) and it was warmer in the pool than out! Gill and Keith were there to greet us and show us around. They happily answered our questions. Highly recommend.

                        Lovely villa and pool in quiet setting

                        5 of 5
                        We hired this villa for our first holiday in Portugal and had a wonderful time. Family of 4 (2 sons age 4yrs and 7yrs) Coming in April we knew the temperatures wouldn't be scorching but we were surprised and had lovely hot sunny days and the shaded pool was a plus for us. No worrying about the boys getting sunburnt and having to coat them suncream all the time. Pool was great and paying the extra for the heating is a must for little ones. We chose the villa because of the heated pool. The villa is well equipped (great to have lots of kitchen utensils!) and feels very homely and cared for. The selection of pool toys (loungers, weighted rings for diving etc) and beach items (umbrellas, body boards, games and buckets and spades) was fab for the children. The selection of books for the grown-ups was appreciated as well. It's nicest villa we have stayed in. Well positioned for exploring the Western Algarve, all its beaches and exploring the hills inland. A car is a must as the villa is on the Alma Verde residence so you need to drive to shops and restaurants. We always hire a car and so this was expected and not an issue for us. Closet village is Burgau which has lovely restaurants and beach. From finding the villa online, making the booking with Susannah, getting directions from the airport (better than our route planner!) and the fab welcome pack. Everything was easy and ran smoothly. Will recommend to family and friends.
