Beautiful, well equipped Villa..Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Benedita's Villa in the Algarve! Benedita is a pleasure to deal with, easy to connect with and gives great advice on visiting the area. The villa has been freshly renovated and painted and is appointed with comfortable beds, new linens, new bathroom fixtures, etc. There is a good size, well equipped cooks kitchen, a washing machine and an outdoor courtyard with clothes line (and sunshine to dry your clothes!). The outdoor dining area is charming and private and the roof top terrace with view of the sea is fabulous! And then you discover that you are steps from the most magnificent secluded beach and coastline with sweeping views and gorgeous sunsets! (better than in the photos!) Added bonus ...there are a few shops and restaurants within a 5 minute walk of the property...and the lovely village of Alvor is a short drive or a leisurely walk from Prainha Village. We were six adults and it was great that each room had it's own bathroom. We all had a most relaxing and wonderful week at this beautiful Villa! Thank you Benedita!

Beautiful Location, Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We holidayed here with my Parents, Brother's family and our three children. The apartment was excellently presented and very well equipped with everything we needed.

It's position is excellent, a 5 minute walk to the Pool which is secure for the children and there is even a lift down to the beach, and a shop nearby for supplies.

The owner was very helpful in organising everything we needed. In short we had a great time and will hopefully be booking again next year.

Magnifica moradia na Prainha

  • 5 of 5

Esta moradia encontra-se situada no coração do empreendimento mesmo junto à piscina, praia e restaurante "O Caniço".Encontra-se muito bem equipada e decorada com muito bom gosto. Devido ao facto de ter apenas um piso é ideal para pessoas com mobilidade reduzida e famílias com crianças. Tem uma magnifica vista sobre o relvado principal e o mar. A destacar a simpatia e disponibilidade da proprietária. Sem dúvida uma experiência a repetir !!!

Prainha Alvor

  • 5 of 5

Sem dúvida que se trata de uma casa com uma ótima localização, muito acolhedora, uma decoração que nos faz sentir estarmos na "nossa" casa de férias. Á chegada percebe-se que há um especial cuidado em receber bem o cliente, de te tal forma que nos sentimos mais convidados do que clientes. A casa está mutissimo bem equipada, com um ótimo nível de limpeza. Recomendaria este imóvel a um amigo ou familiar. A envolvente em que se enquadra esta casa é maravilhosa, tendo ao seu dispor todas as infraestruras do aldeamente, destacando-se a piscina oceanica, e o fácil acesso a praia através de elevador. O proprietário prestou um excelnte serviço pelo que, aconselha-se vivamente!
