I instantly new it would be perfect for our family and what we wanted. Having visited Tavira many times before we wanted something in the area for our family of 7 adults and 2 children (age 1 & 2) On first impressions the villa is beautiful just outside the villa of Moncarapacho, we initially struggled with the directions (due to a very early start!) but Ian from MARS very kindly came and met us and drove us in. The service from Ian and the team whilst we were out there was second to none. The Villa is very well kept, clean and modern, it was large and bright- and very quiet. The bedrooms had ample storage and the AC was brilliant. We had the double on the top floor with a balcony and a view of the sea which was just lovely. The villa also benefited from a fantastic terrace, we spent many evenings and nights here sat drinking wine in the sun until 9pm! It really was the WOW factor. Having small children we did have reservations however there is a lockable gate and the balcony is well protected. The pool itself we paid to be heated which was absolutely worth it! We were all in it everyday, it's a great size and the jacuzzi is a great addition. The tennis court was also a huge highlight and the men spent many a day in competition. In the evening we visited Fuzeta, Olhao 3 times and Tavira once. Although Tavira is our favourite it was just a bit too far in a taxi. Olhao however was beautiful and we had some fantastic meals out here, and the girls loved the bouncy castles! I have to say the service from Valter the owner has been exceptional, always answering queries very quickly. We would certainly look to book again in the future but next time for longer! The only things we did say which would be great to see for next time would be a fridge on the very ground level for drinks so you don't have to keep going upstairs, and also mattresses for some of the plastic sunloungers. These are minor points for what was an incredible family holiday! Thank you again and we hope to be back again in the future :)
