About the property

Vila Kela is a beautiful, child friendly villa which is fully furnished to an extremely high standard.

Banks/ATM's, chemist, post office and market are nearby in the villages of Ferreiras and Guia. The villa is an easy drive from the Algarve's best beaches, including Albufeira's famous Fishermans beach, Gale, Sao Rafael, Castelo, Oura, Balaia and Falesia. Away from the main tourist hub, explore the quaint fishing villages which retain much of their original charm and character. Visit the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, the Monchique mountains, Sagres and Cape St Vincent. The town of Silves, with its imposing castle, is full of history and local charm. Loule has many fine old churches and buildings, and a famous covered market that spills out onto the streets on Saturdays.

Other nearby attraction include Zoomarine - a dolphinarium which has its own mini funfair and water park, and Krazyworld which offers good family entertainment with a zoo, pools and fairground. There are also 2 huge water parks - Slide and Splash, and Aqualand - The Big One, which offer just about every aquabatic experience!

We had a fantastic sunny break in October, still lovely and warm! This is the nicest villa we've been to, completely private, surrounded by countryside with wonderful views. Immaculately clean and presentable on arrival both inside and out.

The jacuzzi and heated pool were a real treat, nice and relaxing after a hard days sunbathing!

Vanda was really welcoming, explained all the facilities to us, and was readily available by phone call whenever we needed her.

Great shopping in the Algarve shopping centre nearby if you feel the need to leave the comfort of the villa. All in all, we had a really peaceful, get away from it all week, and can thoroughly recommend a visit!

Villa surpassed all our expectations !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever villa holiday and it was fantastic!

The booking process was very easy and quick.

We requested a food pack and it was the best idea ever, we arrived very late at the property and everything was closed.

We felt very welcome ! Algarve Vacation representatives came in the next day to welcome us and give us information about everything.

The villa was beautifully clean, as was the pool. We spent many hours along with my niece and nephew playing in the pool.

The towels were changed at midweek as we was informed.

I can honestly say the villa surpassed all our expectations and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Could be a genuine 4 star with a little more thought and effort.

  • 3 of 5

Although the villa itself is very nice, we arrived at 9pm on a Friday night with 2 young children to find absolutely no supplies left for us whatsoever. There was even a note to say that we shouldn't use the tap water for drinking so couldn't eat or drink anything until we'd gone back out to find a local shop that was still open. We wouldn't even have been able to make up my baby's bottle of milk. After a long day of travelling this was an unexpected and unwelcome start to the holiday.

We also discovered the property wasn't very clean and the highchair we'd had to pay for was disgusting (and I won't go in to detail about the state of the bidet in our bathroom).

The villa was given a thorough clean on the Monday, and once we'd stocked up on supplies, we felt we could relax and enjoy ourselves. We did enjoy using the pool also.

I would highly recommend the owner to have a few basic supplies in for each guest on arrival - and obviously make sure the villa is clean - this would have made a big difference to our experience.

Owner's Response: Villa Kela is a self-catering villa, although we have available food-packs that any client can choose and according to each guest’s choice we provide and leave at the villa prior to each clients arrival. The food hampers are an additional option and have an extra cost associated, depending on the size. This information is available in the first page of the booking form that each client needs to fill in and sign, so it is clear that we will provide it if chosen. The note that was at the property regarding the tap water it was only a note from the owner that kindly advises the guests not to use it in the kettle, although it is drinkable. There is no mention on said note that the tap water is not drinkable. The local representative who welcomed your party has reported she was available to show you where the nearest bakery was and where you could find somewhere to make some shopping’s at that time but you declined her offer. The inspection report from the cleaning agency mentioned that everything was ok and in order. Even so we have sent, immediately after your report, a request to the cleaning lady for a revision, which has been made. But I can assure you that this property is in the highest score in the cleaning theme, this is the first complaint received in years. I am afraid that we must disagree with your opinion once everything was provided so you could have a great holidays, cleaning reports are the best we have, message for the tap water has not been correctly understood and the demand for the food hamper that your party expected was clearly not specified as a request on the booking form.

Paderne is a charming village, featuring a beautiful parish church, spring and Moorish castle.

Albufeira is the tourist capital of the Algarve and receives a considerable percentage of the 5 million tourists who visit there each year, attracted by its golden beaches, world class golf courses, fabulous restaurants, and numerous bars and discos. It now boasts a new marina complex - daily cruises, big game fishing, diving and paragliding can all be booked here.

The Algarve shopping centre, located on the EN125, is 10 minutes away. It has a large supermarket, fantastic shopping mall and cinema.

Golf: The Algarve is home to many of the world's top golf courses and has played host to many international tournaments and competitions. Golfers are in paradise with over 30 courses to choose from.
