The kitchen is huge and fully equipped with all necessary appliances. The living room is amazing, seating everyone comfortably. The Wi-Fi signal is great and free. The TV has several english channel which is a big bonus. The entire house was very clean when we arrived, and cleaning was done twice a week and our towels were changed midweek. When we arrived we were welcomed by a delightful young man that showed us the property and gave us all the information we needed to get around. All of the team from Algarve Teams, especially Olivia, were extremelly helpful and nice. I highly recommend this Villa for its location as well, it is in a quiet, peaceful area perfect for a relaxing holiday.

The quality of the décor and the taste is wonderful. It has everything you need and more. It is incredibly clean, very comfortable and we cannot recommend it enough. It is a home to relax and have fun it at the same time. We are already booked to return.

The weather was perfect from start to end and Lynn made sure everything was perfect on arrival. The property was clean and tidy and I would recommend this property to anyone. When there was the odd problem Lynn got it sorted immediately and was always on hand to help, giving excellent customer care. The beach and plenty of restaurants are all within walking distance (we would particularly recommend Xenia). We had a really love holiday.
