We loved our stay in this beautiful villa. Sam looked after us beautifully. The location and setting were perfect and such a treat to have a villa in Portugal with decent outside shade. It worked perfectly for 4 adults and 4 children. We had a very happy time for our annual trip to the Easter Algarve and hope to return again next year.
Although the villa is situated away from shops and the beach it was no problem driving the 10 minutes to get there. Altura is a sun lovers beach paradise. Miles of golden sands and plenty of choice if you want to eat and drink. The very best restaurant however is a 10 minute walk from the villa. I think it was called Rodrigo’s or Ricardo. You can actually see it from the villa . Reservation is recommended as it is very popular with locals. The owner and staff are superb and very welcoming.
The villa is as described in the facilities. We found it very easily from the owners directions. Very clean and tidy, bed linen and towels in place. A huge part of the weeks entertainment was the fantastic swimming pool. The grandchildren spent most of each day in the pool. Plenty of sun loungers and outdoor seating.
The only minus for us was lack of air conditioning in the main body and bedrooms of the villa. The basement had air con but with the high temperatures we had some of us struggled to stay cool. One more whinge. The floor to ceiling windows in the en suite of the main bedroom was rather disconcerting. No problem though, there were plenty of bathrooms to go round. All in all good value.
