But having spoken to Amanda on the telephone and several email messages later (I'm surprised she didn't cancel because of my constant barges of email!), the holiday was booked. Upon arrival and after a stressful flight - one luggage was missing - we arrived at Villa Jordan at 12am, it was a delightful end to a maddening day. Beautiful villa in a newly developed area of Albufeira, surrounded by other equally appealing villas. Well decorated, clean, each room has an en suite bathroom, the master bedroom bathroom has a jacuzzi. The kitchen is well equipped with what you would normally have at home. Lovely sitting area in the back garden with a complete custom built barbecue set, chairs and table. The swimming pool which is located just by the side garden is concealed by the high fence which gives you some privacy. Local amenities are just 5 minutes walk away, water parks and the beach, 5 to 10mins drive away, we rented a car so it was easy for us to get around other more distant places. Amanda kindly gave us a lot of information on the area, which was helpful. Go of it, especially if you prefer some quiet time away after you've visited the more "touristy' areas. The kids actually had more fun playing at the pool than other places we visited! We had such a lovely stay at Villa Jordan, we will definitely be booking this again and will recommend it,

Bright, clean, well maintained with everything we could have wished for. The extra bonus of a regular friendly maid was much appreciated by us all. Outside the pool was one of the best we have experienced in this type of property and the whole group took full advantage of it. If we could just think of one thing to improve the property it would be air conditioning - we were there at a particularly hot time of year.

This is an excellent villa with great facilities including superb pools and poolside terrace. The villa layout is spacious, providing home from home comforts and ideal if you are a couple or a family. All bedrooms are ensuite and the recently upgraded kitchen is great for making those quick holiday snacks or meals on the nights we did not want to leave the poolside. Azul is secluded and surrounded by lovely gardens, olive groves and fields: However we always feel safe and secure in the villa. At the end of the day the electric shutters are such a simple and effective security measure. Whatever you are looking for Villa Azul has it all: Our favourite is very much to relax by the pool in the peaceful, secluded and quiet surroundings and regularly cool off in the wonderful pool. The outdoor space is Villa Azul's top feature! Like us you might never want to leave the terrace and those blue, blue welcoming pools! The location of Azul is perfect, a short drive to the beach for a change of scene or visit Albufeira or the fantastic Zoomarine for the day - so much to see and do! The local restaurants and shops are in walking distance and are very welcoming as are all the Portuguese people. We hire a car and it's great for getting out for a little retail therapy too - loving the Algarve Shopping Mall. All the staff at Principal Office are so friendly and organise and look after everything. Welcome food pack and poolside towels are most appreciated. The villa is clean and the maids, gardeners and pool men are polite and very efficient. Florence is a star and extremely helpful! Thank you for taking care of us again. We love it so much we have returned numerous times: So the best recommendation I can give is that we have already booked for next summer! Once you have experienced Villa Azul you won't want to go anywhere else!
