The owners Alfredo and Helena were brilliant at providing us with the required information and assistance to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. The private transfers through Jorge and their recommendation were also great. Would happily return to this villa as it ticks all the boxes!

Access to the apartment was very easy and the instructions provided were clear and easy to use, on arrival I received a text message from the property manager Sonia to ensure that everything was okay! There is an allocated parking space linked to the apartment within the underground car park however we chose to use the outdoor parking bays instead as the underground park was tricky to access through a very steep narrow drive, although not a problem as we were able to park close by anyway. The apartment is very nice and spacious with everything you need - even a washing machine! there is UK tv channels available within the comfy living room and a well fitted out modern kitchen. The bedrooms are also spacious with comfy beds (doube in the master and two singles in the second bedroom) there is also a safety deposit box in the master bedroom, the apartment is very close to all the local amenities - Oura Beach is a must with a lovely beach bar serving great food! There's a supermarket 100m away and a great selection of bars and restaurants across the street. During our stay we also went to Villamoura where we had ice cream on one of the many decks by the marina whilst we gazed at the beautiful yachts, we then went to the Albufeira Shopping Centre which was about a 15 min drive from Albufeira - here they had a great selection of shops from clothing to technology (the girls especially loved Zara!). For the first time we also took the opportunity to sample the Splash and Slide waterpark which was about a 40 minute drive from the apartment - at 96 Euro for the family of 4 adults it really was money well spent as we had a ball! We'll definitely use this apartment again.
