                                    Amazing!

                                    This villa is simply beautiful. We were a group of 9 and the property had plenty of space for all of us. Huge house with all amenities you could ever need: the utility room alone is the size of a large kitchen! The pool and outdoor area is lovely; aside from the sun loungers, there is table outside for evening meals as well as a barbecue. There is a new table tennis table in the garage which was well used during our stay. Downstairs = 2 Twin rooms; Upstairs = 3 Double bedrooms (very large). I would highly recommend hiring a car for this property. The location is beautiful and quiet, but there aren't many things that are walking distance. The nearest beach is around a 30-40minute walk (walk through the hotel complex near the beach). The nearest supermarket is about 30mins walk. There are a range of nearby restaurants however (5-10mins). We all would definitely recommend staying at this villa!

                                    Impressively modern, clean and private villa

                                    5 of 5
                                    We would stay here again and have already recommended Villa Monte dos Lourencos to the rest of our family. A 5 minute drive gets you to a variety of small supermarkets, restaurants and beaches. Though semi-detached it is surrounded by farmland on three sides and the feeling is one of privacy and isolation. As the pictures show the interior is modern and minimalistic. We found the bright kitchen well equipped and practical. The bathrooms are simply beautiful, especially the power showers and underfloor heating! The blackout shutters offer security and really help towards a good night's sleep. Pack a torch! Staying in mid April we enjoyed the terraces and outdoor furniture by day but were glad of the warm aircon in the evenings. Travelling with parents in their 70's was not a problem here as there are no steps and the showers are both walk-in. It would also be ideal for those with young children as pool securely fenced. All in all we loved the villa and enjoyed getting to know the surrounding area.

                                    Great value for money! The villa benefits from fanominal views over the Algarve with sea views. I spent 1 week with my family in villa Lila and throughly enjoyed every minute, the villa has everything you require to enjoy a great holiday. The villa is set in a great location for family and friends who want to enjoy a peaceful holiday. Hire car recommended if you want to get out and about. 5 star villa!! Can't wait to return later on in the year. Great place, lovely people.
