Guestbook comments from the manager

Definite 5* week. The villa is well appointed clean tidy and the grounds are well kept. The whole feeling of the Villa is comfortable. We splashed in the pool, sat in the sun and in the evening wandered down to the local town (village)which is full of the kind of bars and restaurant's that locals frequent, great fun. Loads of local places and towns to visit even a huge shopping mall within 10 mins drive. Recommend this to anyone.

Buganvilla May 2009

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to a villa in Guia and we very impressed with this villa and as it says it has been fully modernised including sky tv ( we don't even have sky at home so that was a great novelty for watching all the uk tv at night time).

The pool was heated for a few days ( we didn't request this ) and would recommend heating in May.

Garden and grounds are immaculate and we saw both the gardener and the pool attendant several times during our one week stay.

Guia is a small town with many typical Portuguese restaurants and a few bars,the Algarve shopping centre is only 3 miles away and sells everything you could posibly need.

Albufeira is approx 5 miles away and has many pubs/clubs/restaurants etc.

Guia is ideally situated (40 mins west of Faro airport) for exploring the Algarve and it's many waterparks and golf courses.

The villa has full aircon (not needed in May) and the patio door has a insect net which slides across to keep insects out and 10 month old daughters in!!!

Quiet, peaceful villa in village location

  • 4 of 5

The first impression of the area and the villa are good, set on a corner plot with space all around it is situated in a quiet road ideal for walking into the village of Guia. Very clean and modern we had plenty of room for the three adults and three children in our party, we made full use of the pool and the outside eating spaces both of which were well maintained with good modern furniture. Air con in the main rooms was a must for our stay ( temperatures in the mid 30's) Florence and her team helped out with car hire, taxi's and other queries we had and we're always willing to go that extra mile. All in all a good holiday in a clean, bright, modern villa. Probably need a car to reach the beaches and sights of the Algarve.

Excellent - exceeded expectations

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and well kept. We arrived reasonably late on the Thursday and it was a pleasant surprise to find a food and drink package on the side and in the fridge. We under occupied, there was only my wife and I in the villa and it was more than adequate for our needs. It's only a short walk from the village with the small but adequate supermarket and some good restaurants. Ideal is fantastic if you like fish/seafood. For piri piri chicken go next door to Ramires.

We didn't have the pool heated although the people previous to us had had it heated as it was still lovely and warm on the Friday. We didn't need it heated and used it most days. The grounds are well maintained and not overlooked, people walking past would not be able to look in over the pool area. There is a large selection of books, which we added to and we also added a couple of jigsaw puzzles; we hope they'll remain for others to use (one we got from the charity shop in the village and had a piece missing)!

The maid came twice during our stay, but the second time was on our penultimate day and we said that it was fine for her to come back when we'd left - we were keeping the place pretty tidy ourselves! The pool cleaner came one morning while we ate our breakfast on the very comfortable out door furniture on the large veranda, so it didn't affect our time there.

Our only issue was with the security alarm - we may have annoyed some neighbours by setting it off a couple of times! We found that when you arrive back at the villa one person should go in as quickly as possible and close the front door before inputting the code.

I would come back but next time I would definitely hire a car. On this occasion we really wanted to get away from everything and relax, turn our phones off and just enjoy some peace and quiet - for that it was ideal. Next time I would like to explore more of the surrounding areas and so a car would be vital for that.

Another restaurant we liked and thought would be good for families would be Palladium. The one restaurant we wouldn't return to was the nearest one to the villa: Retiro de Guia. Nothing really wrong with it but there were much better restaurants in the village.

There was wifi at the villa but we intentionally didn't use it. We had a problem with the TV - the HDMI cable was broken. I phoned up the office and very shortly after they sent someone to replace the cable and retune the TV. Can't complain!

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

I wont repeat what others have already mentioned..but I agree.....it is a wonderful villa!

The 3 piece suite in lounge is very comfortable. Lovely new dining room suite too.

Television is ok.....I left a list of programmes that are in English so they can be found easily (not sure if it will still be there though!)

Big selection of reading material.Bring your own DVD'S as there is a player.

Lovely kitchen but missing a can opener. Someone mentioned there wasn't a utensil for turning fried eggs over but there's a barbeque slice in a drawer. Welcome pack provided....great when you arrive on a late flight.

No cloth for wiping down work tops. Sponge provided for washing up.

Bedrooms are lovely...lots of storage and hangers.

Bed was rather too firm for my liking....but everyone's different ! Just wanted to mention it!

The outside furniture is lovely...nice and solid. You can sit out and not bake in the sun. Towels and beach towels provided. Washing line and pegs also.

Great views from the villa,lovely and quiet when we stayed in May.

Lovely pool...didn't bother heating it.

Nearby is a shopping mall called Algarve Shopping....C&A's clothing tax free!

Iceland is nearby, handy if you want familiar foods....milk especially as I didn't like the local one in my tea.

Everywhere we parked...shops,beaches etc was free!

Visited some amazing beaches...Gale,Alvor,Carvoeiro,....Benagil...(.great for cave trip)

ps can I just mention to people who hire a car...they will ask you for a credit card for security...so make sure you have enough on it.. (check with your hire company first!)

We used Eurocar....when returning car it says to take to their building and not to airport...we were worried that we wouldn't find it but we did easily as it was on the road to airport on the right.There is also a petrol station on motorway...you don't have to fill up in Guia as suggested. Hope this helps!

This attractive villa is situated on a small residential estate, Quinta dos Alamos, on the outskirts of Guia, which is only a 10 minute walk. Guia is a small town with shops and famous for its many good value restaurants, of which there are over 20. There is also a supermarket and fruit & vegetable market. The Blue flag beaches of Galé are only five minutes drive away. Algarve Shopping the largest shopping complex in the region is only a few minutes drive, with Multiplex Cinemas. Albufeira town is 6kms, around 10 min drive. The old town is very interesting with narrow cobbled streets and old fisherman houses and then there are the numerous music bars and street entertainers together with regular free shows in the main square in the summer season.
