So close to being perfect, shame about pool / owner issues

  • 3 of 5

There's no denying that this is a stunning villa and would have definitely received five stars if it were not for the issues detailed below.

The pool was not heated on arrival, it was far too cold (18 degrees) to let our kids swim in it. This is despite paying extra to have the pool heated, and also being promised by email with the booking company that the pool would be pre-heated on arrival. Instead, we were not able to use the pool until day 3 of a 7 day holiday.

We arrived on a Saturday and were handed the keys at the management company's office who told us they'd meet us on Monday evening to 'show us around the villa' which we thought was odd. When we had to contact them about the cold pool, they said they would contact the owner. The owner arrived a few hours later. He could not speak English, but we made it clear that the pool was far too cold to use and we were not happy and wanted it sorted out immediately. Very disappointingly, we had to fight and argue our point with the owner for 2 days before the pool was finally brought up to a usable temperature. Over those 2 days the management company would not help us other than to refer us back to the owner. We ended up calling a family member on the phone twice to translate our conversations with the owner. This is something the management company should have been doing, it is not good enough.

Overall it was simply not acceptable that a) the pool was not heated despite paying for it and confirming in advance, and b) we had to argue and fight with the owner, which is not the kind of hassle you want on a holiday.

Other very small gripes:

- The annex was not usable on arrival, was only cleared of rubbish and made up on the 3rd day. In the end there was mould in the annex and nobody wanted to stay in it. The management company said because there was only 10 of us that they don't give access to the annex.

- The electronic shutters were great when they worked, but they kept failing and we had to ask the owner to fix them multiple times

By day 3 when the pool was heated it was fantastic and we had a great time. The rest of the villa is superb, very clean and well furnished with comfortable beds and superb showers! The space in the villa was fantastic, particularly the main living / dining / kitchen space and the basement games room.

We most likely would have stayed here again if these issues were not experienced. It is a superb property and so close to being perfect

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa certainly has the WOW factor. There were 17 of us in our party - a mixture of ages from 4 to 74 and this villa accommodated us all. All the teenagers and older children were in the downstairs bedroom attached to the games room and they had a whale of a time. Lovely bedrooms and ensuites. The older generation had the two bedrooms on the ground floor. One bedroom had an ensuite and balcony to the pool and was beautiful. The other was next to a bathroom with patio doors leading to a seating area just around from the pool and, although adequate, was not as nice as the other bedrooms. The living area is unbelievable and the kitchen has two huge fridge freezers for all food and drink needs. The pool was to die for - we had it heated so that the young ones could play in it without getting cold and it was well worth it. Plenty of different shady areas if you wanted to sit and chill. Balconies and sun terraces galore. Beautifully kept gardens all around the villa and, although not huge, were perfectly adequate. Just a few little niggles - the annexe by the pool, although lovely, had insufficient ventilation and no air conditioning so we felt was unusable. We did try it one night but it was just too hot - also the door wouldn't lock. The area behind the villa is bowl shaped and therefore noise resonates. The cleaner did say to us on our first day "we must be tranquil" and although we are not a noisy family, there were 17 of us and obviously you can't help making some noise. Our first day we put on some low music (Frank Sinatra) by the pool and was respectfully asked to lower the sound by the neighbour at the back of us. This we obviously did but we did feel inhibited for the rest of the holiday, especially in the evening when having a barbecue and wanting some music on. I reiterate the music was not loud, blaring music and, if you are party people, this should be borne in mind. There's a more than adequate supermarket just down the hill and lots of bar/restaurants in the area. We found a beautiful coved beach just down the road with a lovely bar/café. We've been to Portugal many times and can honestly say this was one of the loveliest villas we've stayed in - would definitely recommend.

Overall very enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Not everything in the villa is what we expected. Although there were 10 people in our party no-one wanted to sleep in the annex and not all of the cycles worked. However this did not detract from what is a very large, spacious villa that has plenty of room for everyone. The owner (who lives just down the road) was very attentive to the other minor issues that we had - something that we found very re-assuring.

Stunning villa!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed here, first time there were 10 of us and this time 13.

There was ample space in this beautiful villa for all of us.

This is the perfect place for a large family holiday.

The villa was very impressive and lived up to the photographs on the website.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend Villa Paris to my friends. It's ideally situated and easy to get to the restaurants and a short drive to the beach.

Absolutely amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

15 of us stayed at villa Paris for a week at the beginning of June and had the best time. The villa had everything that you could possibly wish for and more. The pictures look amazing but still don't do it justice. It was beautifully clean with regular maid service and clean towels provided. We requested a second set of keys as often we went off to different places in groups and these were dropped off for us with no problem at all. The lady from the agency came to visit to make sure everything was ok for us and was extremely helpful and we really felt like nothing was too much trouble. It is located about a 5 minute taxi ride to the old town and about 10 minutes from zoo marine, both definitely worth a visit. There is a large supermarket called Oceano down the road and a large spar shop a little further along. When getting a taxi from somewhere back to the villa, we found it best to say villa Paris, near Oceano supermarket and up the hill and they all knew where to go from that description. We camt wait to come back!!
