The pool and gardens were well maintained. The complex was peaceful and it was great to sit out on the terrace and feel we were next to the pool but had our own private space. A bonus was the underground car park with our own dedicated space. There are some restaurants and bars within walking distance and a small supermarket. All communication with the owner was excellent. I would recommend and definitely book again.

                                                                                                  This Villa was simply perfect for the needs of our family of 8 adults. There is absolutely everything that you could possibly need from washing line & pegs to outstanding views. It is extremely spacious (the photos really do not give it justice) and spotlessly clean. The air con & free wi fi were an absolute bonus having young adults constantly on social media, just make sure you switch it on when you arrive. There are plenty hangers in the wardrobes for those who prefer to hang up their clothes rather than live out of a suitcase. It has more than enough cutlery, plates etc to do family cooking and the kitchen was just like being at home. Having 2 fridge freezers was also an added bonus. I would highly recommend having a car and don't be put off when you come to a dirt track road to reach the property. The Villa is set back on its own, with only a couple of others in the distance. It is ideal and we felt safe enough. (There was noise from dogs in the distance during the night but not too bad) The gardens are quite spectacular and again the photos do not do this area justice. The pool area and BBQ were well used and there was loads of 'pool toys' for adults & chidren alike. But pay a visit to the local beach about 15 minute drive away. It is fabulous. The Villa is about 12 minute drive from the Algarve Shopping Centre and is definitely worth a visit. There is a huge supermarket here that came recommended by a friend. You will get everything here to stock up with your weekly shop and it is much cheaper than the local supermarket. There is a wee pub on the corner of the main road at the bottom of the Villa beside the 'donkey roundabout'. We wished we had found it sooner. We went to watch the football and sat outside in the lovely evening sunshine. Through the back there is a dart board, pool table & football table. Worth a visit for the cocktails alone though. Albufeira is a pretty straight road away and about 15 minutes in the car. If you like the business of this then you have the best of both worlds. I honestly couldn't recommend this Villa highly enough. It was exactly what we needed for our family holiday. Thank you to John at Perfect Villa Escapes for his advice and information prior to us booking.

The villa has been decorated to a high standard and it has all the facilities that you could ever need. We were fortunate enough to have fantastic weather for our whole stay so we made the most of the outside living areas. The dining and lounge areas outside meant it was a pleasure to stay in rather than venture out for food every night. We certainly made the most of the BBQ, the pizza oven etc. We used all of the entertainment provided including the pool, table tennis and Petanque court whilst listening to our music on the sound systems provided. The grounds of the villa are impressive too. As well as the newly created Petanque court, the owners have designed a wonderful garden area which is looked after by their hardworking gardener. The villa is a little bit off the beaten track, down some unmade roads, however it was a pleasure to be away from everything. Having said that the beach is only 5 minutes away in Gale, Albufeira 10 minutes away and Vilamoura about 30 minutes. I would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone. Fred and Suzanne's communication throughout has been excellent. we'd love to visit again.
