Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to say a big thank you for the lovely holiday. The villa was excellent and we could not have wished for more. Fernanda and Rosa were brilliant, as per usual the villa was spotless and we really enjoyed our holiday even more than usual.

Thanks a million!

This villa is a real gem! Provides all you need, just as described in the property details but the overall impact is so much more.

Beautifully furnished throughout. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Wonderful welcome pack provided on arrival. The terrace, pool and garden area are fabulous. Secluded and peaceful. Rooms are big and spacious, exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

5 star villa

  • 5 of 5

I must say we cannot fault you on the description of your villa. It truly is a stunning, luxury 4 bedroom villa. The bedrooms are a lot bigger than anticipated which is always a bonus and the decor is even more stunning in real life.We felt that we we're given the royal treatment upon arrival as the villa was so cosy for us as we flew in quite late and we had a gorgeous food pack to nibble on while we settled in. No expense was spared on us and we we're so appreciative. We cannot not wait to come back next year.

Fabulous!! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay on Serra e Mar but our first stay at Casa Alegre Vista.....what an amazing villa!!!.....everything is so luxurious, from the incredible decor to the huge bedrooms and gorgeous bathrooms, the comfortable beds with beautiful linens, the massive kitchen and living room, the fantastic pool (where our kids lived for 2 weeks!!).....I could go on and on because it really is the best place we have ever stayed. And there is everything you need...air con, BBQ, a well-equipped kitchen (with 2 full size fridges and a full size freezer!) and beautiful terraces all round the villa with plenty of garden furniture and sun loungers. Most of all it is really private and peaceful and we just didn't want to leave.....really, really wish it was my house and would 100% recommend to anyone!

Idyllic villa in sunny Algarve

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa ticked all the boxes for me as a holiday rental villa. It is beautifully decorated and situated in a peaceful neighbourhood not too far away from the city of Portimão. We loved it, the pool area is amazing and the decor and general cleanliness of the property was spectacular.

The owner was very friendly and helped with all the questions we had regarding the Algarve. The house was lovely and warm on our arrival, we could tell it was the owner's main priority to make sure we had a hassle free holiday.

Will definitely reccomend to family and friends for future holidays.

We have just returned from the most amazing stay in this stunning villa. From the very start, the Ivory Villas Team were so easy to deal with and always got back to me promptly. Nothing was too much trouble and I actually felt they were like friends in the end. The villa is outstanding. It is much bigger than you realise from the photos. Every single thing about is was perfect; the lovely round entrance hall (which even without the air-conditioning on was always lovely and cool), the large lounge with huge chairs, the large bedrooms with comfortable beds and linen (I have never slept so well on any holiday), the outside covered terrace with the cream chairs and of course, the beautiful pool and gardens. There were 7 of us but there was so much space that we never felt on top of each other. The villa is in a lovely residential area but only 10 minutes away from the main roads and motorway. We did lots of exploring and especially loved Lagos and the nearest town Alvor, which was a taxi ride away with the most amazing restaurants. We generally holiday in USA but decided to stay closer to home this year and I really wouldn't have changed this one for the world. We cannot wait to go back. Thank you again, Ivory Villas.
