From the start the owner gave us directions with were so easy to follow and led us to the front door. He also gave us all the information about the villa and the resort that we would need. He also kept in contact to make sure everything was going ok which I thought was really considerate. The villa was beautiful from start to finish so clean and new. Its location was brilliant just next to the pool and the complex that it was in was so clean also. My Kids and wife loved it and made lots of friends. I would definitely recommend this property and have already decided I would like to go back next year. Our ten nights there was the best and when the place you are staying in is five stay how could you not enjoy it. Thanks Dean and Nadia

Although the villa is a fair walk from the local shops and bars (15 mins), we found it ideal. The kids had plenty to do round the pool, and often went to the nearby hotel for pancakes. We didn't bother hiring a car, but did plenty of shops at Lidl for food and drinks. If you don't hire a car, I'd recommend using Uber for taxi's, very reasonable and can pinpoint your location. The marina is very nice with plenty of bars and restaurants, but I'd also recommend Quarteira promenade too, a few hidden gems there at very reasonable prices. In summary, a brilliant villa in a stunning location, it was such a relaxing holiday, 10 days was not long enough. We would definitely return.
