Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just got home from an amazing week at Villa Joanna Marie. The villa is huge, loads of space for everyone and a big garden for the kids to run around in. There are sunning beaches just 5 mins down the road and great restaurants a stones throw away. David was so helpful in the lead up to our stay. I would really recommend this villa. We had such a happy holiday. Thank you David!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Came in late October for a 60th birthday,it is the perfect place a stunning villa that had everything to keep 3 generations happy ,we have stayed in many villas over the years but none as good as this,the equipment decor and overall feel of the place is more like a home unlike most other rental villas that we have been in.The local restaurants are wonderful and reasonably priced ,beaches 1st class within a few minutes from villa.

Huge well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is huge, and beautifully clean. Great layout inside plenty big enough for at least ten to stay comfortably. Beds comfy and air conditioning quiet and efficient. Super well equipped kitchen and choice of three areas to eat together in. The pool is great we didn't pay the extra to heat it in July and it was fine. the addition of pool table, table tennis and darts really made the this villa stand out from others. St in pretty gardens and private. We did need a car to do anything, though we did not investigate local buses which may perhaps work for you. This was the perfect venue for a relaxing pool holiday. Only forty minutes from Faro airport maximising the length of your holiday without lengthy transfers. No need to pack towels as plenty for both bathrooms and pool, hairdryers in upstairs bathrooms also. Supermarkets a short drive away. Would recommend.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week for my daughters 21st birthday and the villa delivered on every level. This villa is the best we have ever stayed in, the furnishings and finish are fantastic. I find when you book a holiday the accommodation never quite lives up to the brochure, not here, this villa is exactly as described. Beautiful surroundings, furnishings and facilities. As it was March we had the pool heated which was a bonus as we probably would not have been able to use it. We were in it all the time. The beach at Gale (nearest)was great with a lovely cocktail bar/restaurant. Short walk from the villa are 2 restaurants one is a small pizza/pasta place (prima pasta) who accommodated 10 of us on a Saturday without a booking, they are English owners who it turns out came from our hometown. Fabulous but would probably need to book in higher season. The other restaurant (Museu Dos Salgados) is more expensive but well worth it the service and food are top quality. Wine waiter is very knowledgeable and very attentive (never had to top our own wine glasses up)Some dishes you have to give 24hr notice so do look at the menu before you go.

The Agents who manage the villa and David the owner are very helpful and if you have a problem they solve it swiftly. All the details you need for the agents are there at the villa as are very comprehensive booklets that cover everything you will need to know whilst you are there.

We had a fabulous time here and would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a quiet holiday in a beautiful villa. If I could give it 10 stars I would, in fact I am now trying to round up 8 more people to go back with

Family Holiday for 6 Adults 1Teenager and 3 young Girls

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is amazing set in a very quiet location. But within easy reach of restaurants, shops and beaches nearby.

The owners have thought of everything you would need for a Villa Holiday very well equipped kitchen, plenty of space for all of us not to be on top of each other. Three different dining areas, plenty of sunbeds.

Bedrooms are spacious. Plenty enough towels for the pool side and the bathrooms.

The utility room is bigger than my kitchen.

Taxis are very reasonable for going in to Albufeira

Car is a must for shopping and visiting the beaches around the coast.

We used the Museu restaurant and the food and service were excellent they also have a childrens' menu that offers decent food, not chips with everything!!

One suggestion , a carton of milk and a bottle of water in the fridge would be nice for arrivals.

Alistair McGregor is very helpful at the agency office, we booked golf with him and a hire car, we also had a problem with the swimming pool which he came out and checked for us he arranged for it to be cleaned within an hour of his visit.

Would recommend this Villa and I am sure we would all love to return for another holiday in the future .
