Stunning Villa in a beautiful and tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 blissfull days at Villa Mundo Vista. The Villa is immaculate and the views are spectacular, the photos don't do justice to how beautiful this Villa and it's surroundings are.

The supermarket and restaurants are within walking distance, and cheap! We ate at Restaurant Horte and Luis Dos Frangos most nights and the food was not only delicious but excellent value!

Tavira and Faro are both worth a visit. We had the most amazing time on the 4 Islands Boat Trip from Faro, my 14 year old son even got to drive the boat!

I have no hesitation in recommending the Villa. We will be back for two weeks next year. We'd stay longer if we could!

A very spacious, relaxing villa with fantastic views. Newly modernised and excellent amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location, a little hard to find but Alan has since updated google maps.

A very peaceful beautifully decorated property with an amazing housekeeper ( Madelena ).

The views are amazing, the pool is a good size and can be illuminated at night. The facilities are excellent and modern.

We would recommend a visit to the Hotra restaurant ( 5 mins walk ) where the standard of food is superb and was unbelievably cheap!! ( 60 Euros for 4 adults including wine sangria and beers, oh and a couple of Large Scotchs lol ).

The supermarket is less than 5 mins by car and has everything you may need. There are a variety of restaurants in town, but we found Hotra the best for an informal relaxing meal.

If you are after a nice relaxing break or want to explore the algarve without being in the huddle and bustle, this is the place for you!

My only regret is I can't get back there soon enough and already enquiried when this wonderful Villa is next available.

Thank you Alan and of course the fantastic Madelena for making our stay everything we hoped for and more!

See you soon Tom & Sarah Docherty from Surrey

Relaxing and Enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week in Villa Mundo. The house is in a very quiet area although still close enough to walk into town. Pool area was great as was the barbecue area on the patio. House was well maintained and very clean. Madeleine, the house manager was exceptionally helpful and ensured that everything was just right. Sao Bras is very convenient for the beaches and for exploring the entire Algarve. Well worth staying here.

Lovely villa at a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice and relaxed stay at the villa with its private pool and quiet location. If we needed anything Madeline was there in a sec for us. Very nice and warm Portugese lady who spoke very well English. With the supermercado around the corner and lots of nice restaurants this was a perfect spot for us to explore the Algarve.

We enjoyed every aspect of the accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Mundo Vista and enjoyed every aspect of the accommodation. Special thanks to Madalena (the housekeeper) who took great care of everything.

The house was very comfortable and everything was working as it should be (a great relief) . The pool was perfect and the location could not be better.

We will recommend this villa to all our friends and we are even thinking of booking the villa again (in near future or maybe next year), since we liked everything so much.

Best regards,

Oebele, Oswald, Maarten & Jolijn

PS. Restaurant Ysconderijo in Sao Bras is excellent / worth a visit

Thoroughly enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

This year we visited villa Mundo Vista with friends. The four of us had the most wonderful time. The villa has everything you need and lovely views and is in a beautiful situation. We all found it so relaxing and made use of the pool everyday. We visited the local towns and markets and found the Saturday produce market in Loule bustling with locals and wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables.

We found the local restaurants very reasonable and of a good standard and therefore it was not necessary to cook. We still couldn't resist the lovely fruit. Our breakfast was taken on the patio everyday. It was so relaxing. We would all love to return to this lovely villa again. It was a tonic.

We would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family and thank Madeline for welcoming us and being so friendly.

Can't wait for another opportunity to go.

Evelyn, Mick, Fran and Brian

Faro Island - beautiful sandy beach

São Brás de Alportel is an ideal place to stay if you want to explore the lovely countryside in the foothills of the Algarve. It's also not far from the coast if you want a day at the beach and there are some excellent golf courses within a short drive.

São Brás de Alportel, in common with much of the Algarve, was a settlement in Roman times and later inhabited by the Moors, and is a mix of old and new, with typical, low white Algarvean houses amongst the slightly dusty, grander merchant houses from its wealthy past. The area near the church is the older part of town and typically Algarvean with narrow, cobbled streets criss-crossing each other and small shops and cafés in between the houses. As you move further away from the church the streets widen and modern apartments take the place of the older white washed houses. There are lots of shops and supermarkets, banks, restaurants, cafés - everything you need in fact! A little further away again and streets of new villas and low rise apartments edge the town.

São Brás is only a short distance from the City of Faro, to the south, and the picturesque market town of Loulé to the west and both are worthy of a visit.
