The villa (and bungalow) are very clean and spacious . The pool area is superb . The villa is quite a distance from albufeira so We always use luxclube airport transfers to take us into albufeira and the airport run . (Very well priced and great service. They are a must for the holiday to get you around ) The owner of the villa (David ) is a real pleasure to deal with and after another great stay we will now rebook for next year . Overall a great holiday .

Especially handy is the cheap wine. Enjoyed relaxing around the pool, plenty of sun loungers. Inside of the villa was very well decorated, high ceilings helped deal with the heat. The villa is in a central location. The men also had the option of an excursion to the local golf course. The manager Patricia was so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Highly recommended.

The accommodation is first class and the gardens and pool were enjoyed by all. The villa is in a quiet rural setting and is totally secure. Easy access to Albufeira and Vilamoura. We spent a few evenings at the Mato a Vista restaurant that's about a five minute drive away and would definitely recommend a visit there. Altogether a great two weeks and would love to return at sometime in the near future.
