The villa is all that you want good outdoor space, good size swimming pool, the villa is in good decorative order and well furnished, TV and internet gives good access to media. We had no problems for our stay, but local staff on hand in needed, pop in to see if everything was OK. Would highly recommend this villa and Burgau and would stay again when returning to Portugal

The large villa is furnished and maintained to an extremely high standard throughout and especially so when compared to other villas we have rented. Our group was made up of 3 couples and we all had ensuite bathrooms and so no rushing for the showers. Externally we made the most of the heated swimming pool and the sun terrace to sit enjoy a glass or two of wine in the evening sun and look across the lovely gardens. A Weber BBQ made catering easy and the sheltered outside dining area is ideal is a great place to eat and sit in the evening. For cooler evenings there is a large lounge with playstation games, television and big comfy sofas. Villa Flores is in a very peaceful location on the edge of the Alma Verde complex and yet only a short drive to local beaches and restaurants. The owner has provided a good list of local restaurants and other local facilities. We would definitely book Villa Flores again.
