I contacted Carlos prior to booking and he made the process seem so simple. Throughout he was contactable via email and responded back within 24 hours. The villa was immaculate on arrival and we enjoyed our holidays very much, We were 4 adults and 3 children and enjoyed the very clean pool and enjoyed relaxing outside. The villa was very spacious and included enough sunbeds and seating to enjoy the weather and lunch outside Carlos was extremely attentive. I phoned up and asked for a hairdryer and within a few hours Carlos dropped it over. We explored in a car, but the Marina is only about a 30 minute walk away. We decided to book another holiday and are returning to the same Villa next week - we cannot wait :)

The photos really don't do it justice - it is so much bigger and really does have everything you need. It was immaculately clean, the sheets and towels were changed at the end of our first week and the pool was cleaned regularly. All our questions were answered immediately by the owner and any small issues dealt with very quickly. We had 4 children aged 9-12 and there was plenty for them to do especially with the table tennis table. It was very hot but the air conditioning worked perfectly and there is plenty of shade around the pool. The local Spar is about a mile away and Browns Sports Club and Bar is within walking distance. You definitely need a a car but Vilamoura town centre is only a short drive. We would definitely recommend this villa.

The villa and gardens are just as you would imagine from the pictures, very clean and modern, with a well equipped kitchen and great lounge. The garden and pool are fantastic, overlooking the golf course. The owner and local agent were both very helpful. Golf at Vila Sol easy to arrange and good value. Difficult to imagine a better set up. Allan, Edinburgh
