Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a fantastic short break at Villa Neela. The Villa was absolutely delightful - spacious, clean, beatifully decorated and had everything you could want for - luxury to the extreme. Jose the agent was extremely helpful and gave us information on the local area. We walked to Julias beach every day and ate at the retaurants there two nights and at a local traditional restaurant - Murfoso 1. The Villa is in a beautiful location - easy access from the airport and close to some beautiful places - we didn't hire a car but would recommend one for longer stays to take advantage of the surrounding area. It was everything we hoped for and more - would loved to have stayed longer and hope to return soon!

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

2 families, 4 adults, 2x teenagers and a 6yr old. Perfect sized villa for us to share for 2 weeks, lovely quiet location within Vale do Lobo and I would say care hire is essential to visit the beaches, restaurants and supermarkets. Quality of the villa is a very high standard and the outside space with pool was fantastic during the day and to chill out in during the evenings. We had many BBQ' s as meat and fish was plentiful from the local supermarket. The villa benefits from full aircon which was a welcome relief at times.

Overall a high end villa in a premium location

A super villa so well placed for trips to a number of beaches within 10 minutes drive.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Neela is a wonderful place to stay. A short drive from Faro airport, great accommodation, helpful local representative and perfect for a family holiday. We went there with our son and his family including our 4 year old grandson and 18 month old granddaughter. We had a fabulous time as we had several beaches within 10 minutes drive, easily accessible supermarkets that can meet all your needs, helpful local representative and good restaurants if you plan to eat out. Great place, location and lovely people.

Relaxing stay at this lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday and the Villa suited all of our needs. Lovely villa and pool in a quiet location and a short drive to beaches and Vale de lobo. Very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms excellent size and plenty of wardrobe space. I have already recommended this beautiful villa to friends! We had some great meals out including Jose the management agents restaurant Menta Pimenta, Casa da Campo, Alambique and Julia's on the beach. Jose was lovely and very helpful, good experience all round. Highly recommend!
