The apartment really had all the luxury we needed; a good air-conditioning, a private jacuzzi, a washing machine, dishwasher, a good freezer, even a big TV. There's a spacious pool, for who doesn't want to be in the jacuzzi all the time. The village has the shops needed and it's easy and fast to visit the beach. The owner is super friendly and always helpful, gave tips about restaurants. All was excellent.

As our flight was an early one the villa was still being cleaned but we were able to drop our bags and then head out to grab something to eat. This gave us our first glimpse of Olhão (and no its not pronounced as you think it is ) a great fishing port with lovely harbour to walk along. When we returned you would have thought it was Christmas the way the kids were running around 'claiming' bedrooms as their own. The villa def exceeded my expectations and the tennis court was perfect. Even the teenagers who have only ever played tennis on some form of console were on it every day. We had a few day trips out whilst there and Slide and Splash is a must for anyone with a family, we also visited the Sand City, again something to be seen. For the more touristy type shops head to Albufeira, although we were not there long, we missed the peacefulness of the villa. Moncarapacho is a great little village, we unfortunately missed the festival happening this week but they have a great market the first Saturday of the month, well worth a visit but have a walk down as it gets very busy. Would also recommend Antonio's restaurant, just lovely Valter, the owner, i couldnt fault. Really helpful, any questions answered promptly and the amount of information provided was spot on. The management company, again no issues. We had one little issue with the Air con as it tripped one day (11pm), i made a call. They came and sorted it the next day. All in all a lovely family villa that i would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away and see a bit of real Portugal and not just a load of shops selling hats and magnets :-) If you get chance, go you wont regret it. Cheers from Lee and what felt like the brady bunch i took with me :-)

This was my first villa holiday with my family and it lived upto and far beyond our expectations. Dominic was tremendously helpful right from when I made our initial enquiry and remained on hand until the end of our stay. Elizabeth the agent, was very friendly and helpful and even turned up with a box of delicious Portugese custard tarts for us to enjoy with a coffee one morning. The villa was absolutely spotless when we arrived, thanks to the cleaner Ana Maria and her daughter. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay by an attendant. The pool itself was just perfect with a shallow end with steps, leading down to the deeper part of about 4 foot deep, my 2 boys found this wonderful to play in the whole week. We bbq'd most nights, although we did dine at Colibri's in Montcarapacho 2 evenings and would highly recommend the steak on the hot stone. You do need to book if you want to sit outside though. Moncarapacho was very cheap to eat, have a coffee (or a beer) in the square and all the locals are very friendly. Tavira is an absolutely beautiful place to visit and is only half an hour away, as well as the beach at Fuseta, with its street lined restaurants and calm waters, perfect for families. We had a wonderful stay thanks to Dominic and Elizabeth, it just couldn't have gone better, I just wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for sharing Casa Dominica :)
