The boardwalk leading to the caves is beautiful and worth seeing. House managers were very helpful and happy to assist.

We were greeted by the villa manager, as promised at the agreed location and escorted to the property. The villa itself is stunning, very well looked after with luxury furnishings throughout, the owners have included everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday, including directions to the nearest shops, restaurants etc which is a real help when in a new area. The terrace and pool are perfectly positioned to soak up the sun all day, the surrounding gardens are well tended with a wonderful stock of plants, it really is a private and peaceful spot. To sum up Villa Laurena, it is "Absolute Bliss" thank you.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Beautiful villa in beautiful surroundings in a beautiful area (Silves). The villa was spotless and had all the home comforts and practical bits and bobs needed for a brilliant family break. What was also special was the attention to detail provided in the form of little notes dotted around on general "stuff" to do with the villa and area which really helped us acclimatize quickly. The pool area is as described in other reviews....fab. Large, clean and safe with remarkable views across the valley towards Silves castle and even further to the coastline. We ventured out a few times to the "resorts" which were as you would expect.....busy, busy, busy but worth seeing. Vilamoura Pitch and Putt was fun followed by a walk around the marina followed by a bowl of pasta. Lagos was also very nice but to be honest we were more than happy grabbing what we needed from the local Silves markets (and of course "Lidl") getting back to the villa pool/BBQ and chilling out enjoying the really hot sunshine then the gorgeous sunsets and awesome views. Back to the Villa - we had a couple of minor (very minor) maintenance issues which were jumped on by the Managing Agent and sorted really quickly by a lovely English "fix it man". The lady who came to clean the Villa (forgive me but her name now escapes me) was lovely and went about her work with pride and speed. The Villa has everything in it to keep you entertained if you did feel the need to sit inside which we didn't. Didn't turn the TV on for the whole 2 weeks which was great although the kids did enjoy rest bite from the sun every now and again to catch up on their Ipad fixes.... All in all one of the best holidays we have had and that's from all of our family which included kids aged at 8/10 and 12 years old. Only regret - not being able to persuade the kids too sleep out on the roof terrace to watch the shooting stars............ A "sincere" thank you Deborah to you and your team - hopefully be back to explore more of Silves.
