Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Frog was a wonderful holiday for my family this summer. The house and pool are very private and also close to all the accommodations needed. The house was clean and taken care of, the garden was perfect and safe for children to play in. I would highly recommend staying at Villa Frog, it's a very lovely place to relax and enjoy some sun, water, and fun.

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing family holiday in Villa Frog. The Villa exceeded all our expectations in particular how private and well maintained the garden and pool area is. The Tiki bar with large fridge was just perfect to allow you to enjoy the pool area even more. The Villa itself has everything you need and more and whilst it is set in a lovely quiet location you are within walking distance of the new town and only a short taxi to the old town, would have no hesitation recommending to all.

Finally the owner Jane was always on hand to help with any queries we had, extremely helpful and prompt, thank you for allowing us to stay at your exceptional Villa and we look forward to next summer and staying again.

A lovely spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in Villa Frog which was as good as the description on the web site. The gardens were well kept and the pool area large and well maintained.

The local pool bar was good for a drink or snack although we didn't have an evening meal there. The best eating area was Albufeira - a short taxi journey, although I believe there is a shuttle from reception in high season.

The local shop was well stocked and the staff very friendly.

It was great having a game of tennis at the court next to the villa - hireable by the hour.

The nearest beach was a short drive or 20mins walk - it was clean and relatively large, with water sport activities available.

Would definitely recommend Villa to friends and hope to come back to the villa.

Our favourite girly getaway yet!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Villa Frog and instantly fell in love!

The gardens are beautiful and well looked after, as is the pool. The tiki bar was perfect to stash all our bottles of water and goodies, meaning we could relax in the gardens all day. The villa was equipped with everything you could ever need and was just a short walk to the new town where we decided to go every night for dinner, drinks, and a dance :)

Thank you so much for looking after us and making sure we had the best time at Villa Frog. This was our third girls holiday and definitely our best. We didn't want to leave and definitely would like to come back!

Lovely homely villa

  • 5 of 5

I agree with other reviews about how lovely this villa is. We had a very relaxing stay here and unlike many places it actually felt lived in with books, pictures (many by Jane herself) etc rather than the usual bare white walls. The villa was very well equipped with essentials and more and also very clean. Possibly the best attribute for us as a family was the privacy, a secluded garden and pool was a lovely bonus.Wifi was good so that kept everyone happy too! Communication with Jane made arrangements run to plan and we hope to return in the near future.

Villa frog

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an enjoyable holiday at 'Villa Frog'. The villa is in a quiet a location but still close to local resorts to enjoy an evening out. Garden was superb, very pretty and well maintained. Pool and bar area was great for relaxation, bar fridge could be stocked with lots of goodies to compliment the excellent weather. The villa itself was extremely well equipped and well kept. We would certainly consider returning and would highly recommend it.
