I've never stayed in a villa before and unfortunately the standards have been set so high now after staying here, I don't think I could go anywhere else.
The villa is so comfortable and clean and has everything available in it. There is a massive fridge and freezer, washing machine and an abundance of living space that you are spoilt. The shutters on the windows and doors was great as you could close them up with the windows open and keep cool. The air conditioning was a must. We hit 36 degrees while there and the children were still able to sleep soundly in their cool rooms.
There is a gorgeous purpose built BBQ area with seating which is lovely to go to during the day for some shade as well as the obvious barbecuing. There is also a table and chairs near the pool as well as a large area for sun loungers which gets the sun all day.
The safety fence around the pool was great as I have two small children (3 years & 1 year) and it meant they couldn't just jump in. Makes for a relaxing holiday because I can imagine the non stop work you would have to do if it wasn't there.
The bedrooms were a good size, comfortable and clean. It was great having en suites which are also a great size. The general decor in the villa was beautiful as was the gardens.
The short trip from the airport meant you could start your holiday almost immediately. We arrived in Faro at 9.30am and by 10am were decked out splashing in the pool.
There is a large supermarket about 5 minutes drive away and also Loule and Almancil had a great range of restaurants and shops. There are numerous golf courses and beaches within a short drive away. And there is a friendly taxi man who you can arrange pickups etc with.
My parents were with us so it is a great house to have your own space in or join together as a big group.
Highly recommend it!
