Our trip from start to finish was brilliant, we stayed here from 27th December- 3rd January as a group of 12 (7 adults and 5 kids)! The contact I had from Jim prior to our visit was very detailed and useful. He also answered any questions we had about our visit and was very accommodating with requests for the infants we had travelling with us.
When we arrived in Faro, Miguel was waiting with us to take us back to the villa in our transfers Jim had organised for us at a very reasonable rate.
When arriving at the villa, Miguel gave us a detailed tour and answered any questions we had.
The villa itself was great. The location was fantastic! As a larger group, it was situated close to the supermarket for us to pop up and back. It was close to restaurants and then another 5 minutes on was the strip. Going in December/ January, this was very quiet and during the day was as family friendly as anywhere else we visited. We could walk to the beach just down the road from us and other local beaches comfortably and they were just beautiful! We didn’t hire a car all week and had plenty to do. Miguel accommodated a taxi hire for us in his minibus to take us to the old town one day at a very reasonable rate too. The old town was a great visit and one to do if you visit. Despite it being the quieter month, there was a nice buzz in the area and a couple of our group also visited here on New Year’s Eve for the big celebrations they plan with music (live bands) and fireworks. The rest of us who stayed in, also got to enjoy a vast range of fireworks, from the back garden, that were going off along the coast line!
The villa was in good condition and was up to a standard that made very comfortable living. There were 7 adults and 5 children and we had more than enough space to do our own things and all sit sociably together.
The pool was freezing but we didn’t expect much different adding as it was December/ January- although some of our group did brave it!
The weather certainly helped our trip, everyday we could sit outside and enjoy the sunshine and be in shorts and T-shirt’s too!
If we were to come back to the area, we would definitely consider this villa and if not this one, one that Jim was renting out. He and his team made our experience very easy to organise and then enjoy on arrival! Thanks Jim and your team.
Uma semana de descanso com a minha mulher e filhos em Albufeira. O imóvel está bem cuidado, é localizado na estrada da santa eulalia, tem vários restaurantes, bares e supermercados na área. O condomínio privado é calmo. A cozinha é bem equipada. Na sala a televisão é grande e tem qualidade, foi bom para assistirmos filmes em família. Correu tudo bem no geral.
