                                                            Great villa for large groups!

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            This villa was great for our group of 11 friends, 3 self contained apartments across the whole villa, we had the perfect mix of privacy but also the benefit of staying in a holiday villa for our week in Portugal. Great location - this villa feels remote while also being right next to Salgados Palm Village resort, a really modern and large resort. We found the location of the villa great to the Marina, old town and new town for the nightlife. 10-15 mins in a taxi and we were in Albuferia. The villa service was great, staff were really accommodating and happy to help throughout our stay. Great bbq area outside by the pool for evenings. Would recommend car hire for supermarket trips at a minimum as the nearest Aldi/Lidl is 15 mins away, but there are some small concenience shops in walking distance. Overall great holiday!

                                                            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!

                                                            Delightful.

                                                            This is a villa that is in impeccable condition and has everything that one could hope for when seeking a relaxing holiday. The pool table, table tennis table, pool area and the large communal areas of the kitchen and living room provide ample entertainment. Dining in the villa was particularly fun (we were a group of 12) and made easy by the large kitchen area and outside eating areas. The location of the villa would be best utilized with a car- our group did not hire a car but still found it easy and cheap to travel around by taxi and particularly enjoyed our visits to both the New and Old Town of Albufeira and the idyllic sandy beach (20 minute walk away). We were looked after extremely well by Kaiser Properties who amongst other things afforded advice on the best places to shop and visit, visited the property mid-way through our stay to ensure everything was OK and provided airport transfers from the villa at an affordable price. Overall a fantastic Villa and one that we would all recommend.
