Superb holidays

We had a great time in the Algarve. This property was everything we needed. Great location, in a nice residencial complex in Almancil. It was the first time that we rent a property like this and it was super. Thank you very much Olivia

Magnificent Villa

5 of 5
We stayed in this Villa during the scorching summer of August 17. The accommodation and grounds were immaculately maintained. Everything was very clean and the pool was delightful; we spent most of our holiday in it! The house itself is very big and catered well for our two familes (3 adults, 5 children) The lack of air conditioning meant that the August nights were hot, especially for the children and we had a ritual of nightly methods for cooling them down - a number of standing fans were available. This isnt a criticism of the property, its too big to realistically cool with Aircon and we knew what we were in for booking a holiday to Portugal in August!. The Villa was secure and secluded was not overlooked on any side. The views of the sunset in the evening were stunning. The owner of the property was also very helpful and informative in the lead up to the holiday. A wonderful palce that is almost impossible to pick fault with. Highly recommended.
