Perfect location whether you are looking for a great meal out, a trip on the train or for food shopping as there is a very well stocked local supermarket within a short stroll. Can't wait to return and would definitely recommend.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Villa Colibri is the perfect place for a family holiday. 15 of us ( aged from 6 weeks to 65 years ) stayed there in early April 2017. The house is huge, allowing everyone to have their own space. The pool is easily big enough to cope with 15 of us and the jacuzzi was a big bonus! Both are heated by the solar panels and were lovely and warm. Additionally, the pool is fenced off, making the outdoor area safer for the children. The villa and pools are well maintained by Henrique and his wife Theresa, both of whom were really helpful in making sure everything was perfect for us. The kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed and we used the barbecue regularly too. We asked Henrique for a barrel of beer and it was lovely to have cold beer on tap! The furnishings in the villa are comfortable and clean, ideal for a family to relax. The cinema and games room are brilliant, our younger family members loved to watch a film to chill out before dinner. The weather was so lovely that we spent most of our time outdoors, around the pool or in one of the numerous outdoor seating areas. We ate in Henrique and Theresa's restaurant one evening, fabulous fish dishes - everyone enjoyed their meal, highly recommended to other visitors! Moncarapacho is quite a small village, but has two supermarkets with a good selection of foods. Olhao is a short distance away and has a big shopping centre. We hired a minibus and this was very useful for shopping etc. We did walk to Moncarapacho, but couldn't have carried everything back with us, although I think local taxis are reasonably priced. About 2.25 miles from the villa is Cerro da St. Miguel, a viewpoint on top of a hill. A number of our family are runners and liked to challenge themselves by running up the quiet road to the top and back. It's well worth a visit, frequently used by cyclists too. In all, we had a great holiday at Villa Colibri, thanks to Henrique and Theresa for their excellent customer service - nothing was a bother to them. I would certainly recommend this villa to any family or group looking for a restful, relaxing holiday in the sun.
