There was plenty of room for all of us in this wonderful villa. Pool was fantastic, really large. The owner was a pleasure to correspond with via email. Nothing was too much trouble. Pool was cleaned every few days, the grass was cut and a cleaner came in at the end of our first week. First class service. A great place for families!

                                                                                        5 of 5
                                                                                        Right from the start Maria was very responsive to enquiries and right throughout the booking process. When we got to the apartment after a run in with the local police (if you hire a car do not enter a petrol station the wrong way! It will cost you tremendously!) Kevin was very understanding of the delay and was very helpful with regard to local amenities and even offered to show us where the large supermarket was personally (5min drive away) The apartment location is in a great spot. There is a small beach just a couple of minutes walk, the strip which is great on a night is also only a couple of minutes walk away (we were here for the Euro finals and it was buzzing! Such an electric atmosphere) We hired a car but there was a train/bus thing which took you all around old and new town. Vilamoura is only a short drive away and has some great restaurants around the Marina. The apartment is fully stocked with everything that you would need including a hairdryer, ironing board and iron. There's a dishwasher, large fridge, air conditioning and a washing machine. It's a corner apartment looking directly out on to the pool and you get a view of old town too. You get the sun from late afternoon right the way to sunset which is exactly how I like it. I couldn't recommend this apartment more. For a family of 4 staying for ten days and looking for a base with a pool to take advantage of Albefeira and the surrounding areas, this was nothing short of perfect for us. If we are to return to Portugal again we will be sure to stay here

We were greeted by Pauline and given a quick but informative tour of the villa and the general area convenient to the Strip (nightlife in 2 minutes walk, beach in 10). The villa was exactly as described by the owner, Ana Maria. Correspondence by e mail, banking and general information was always by return of post. The villa has everything you require, large open planned kitchen, living, lounging area, various patios and sun terraces. It is so spacious it took us two days to find our bearings inside. The kitchen has every appliance and utensil you can think of. The pool was large and really well cared for ,as were the gardens. The BBQ area is a gem with two large tables and chairs complete with ambient lighting for the evenings. I could go on and on , but you should really come to see the villa for yourself. Our two families really had a ball and 5 kids in their early twenties never uttered a complaint and had nothing but praise for their surroundings, which surely is extraordinary these days ! Just a quick thanks to all the staff - manager, pool guy, gardener and especially the house keeper ! 11 brilliant days !!!!
