Guestbook comments from the manager

All are comments are good ones! The upgrading of the villa is very good and will be great when all the rooms are finished! The location is perfect for dinning and very peaceful too. The service from yourselves and the maid was very good. We hope that we may all be able to return again one day!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villa Azul and hope to return there again in the future. We chose this villa largely because we were visiting in April and it had a heated pool. As a result, our kids spent hours playing happily in the pool! The four double bedrooms were each en-suite and the kitchen was very well equipped. The welcome pack of groceries (and beer!) was very welcome when we arrived later than expected due to a delayed flight.

Beautiful villa in perfect location, quiet lane but close to all local amenities

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this villa for the second week of our two week holiday, having travelled 30 minutes down the coast from another villa in Luz.We loved it, it is beautifully maintained inside and out, the gardens completely surround the villa and have been laid out and planted immaculately.

The pool is an amazing feature, one slight criticism would be that the larger part of the pool is all one depth, good for swimming but too deep for the kids 10 and 11 to stand or play games, the smaller pool is shallower but not big enough for games. Also we paid for pool heating and it was ok but because of its unusual shape there is no nighttime cover to keep the temperature up so it never felt very warm even though the daytime temperatures were around 30 degrees most days.

We had a small issue one morning waking to no electricity but the management company sent a handyman within the hour to sort it out.

A big bonus was the fabulous electric shutters on a lot of the doors and windows making the property feel very secure both at night and when leaving the villa.

One recommendation would be to add at least one other safe in the villa...we struggled to get everyone's valuables into the one safe which is situated at floor level and someone literally has to get right down on the floor to access it, also it was not big enough to hold iPads/tablets...just passports and money. However

Everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday is provided in the villa, including pool towels and inflatables and the midweek clean and change of towels was very welcome.

We would definitely book this villa again if holidaying with family, try it you will not be disappointed.

Two Glorious weeks in one of the best villas in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I both our children and their children for two weeks in a superb villa with all the amenities you could ever need.

Fresh linen , White clean towels changed regularly and Beach towels provided.

The youngest grand children 20 months and 3 years were not water wise!! but after two day my o my what a change by the time we left they were in the big pool (Water wings attached of course!!) and planning like they were born to it.

BBQ to die for, the odd night out! and paste quantities for fine wine.

The youngsters went to Zoo marine and the beach but us older ones just enjoyed the peace and quite to read and rest!!

This is my second family visit in 5 years and hopefully it will not be our last.

I have recommended the villa to a friend who went out in June this year and he has already booked next years trip.

Thank you Florence again for all your help.

Kind Regards

Another fabulous holiday at Villa Azul!

This is an excellent villa with great facilities including superb pools and poolside terrace. The villa layout is spacious, providing home from home comforts and ideal if you are a couple or a family. All bedrooms are ensuite and the recently upgraded kitchen is great for making those quick holiday snacks or meals on the nights we did not want to leave the poolside. Azul is secluded and surrounded by lovely gardens, olive groves and fields: However we always feel safe and secure in the villa. At the end of the day the electric shutters are such a simple and effective security measure.

Whatever you are looking for Villa Azul has it all: Our favourite is very much to relax by the pool in the peaceful, secluded and quiet surroundings and regularly cool off in the wonderful pool. The outdoor space is Villa Azul's top feature! Like us you might never want to leave the terrace and those blue, blue welcoming pools!

The location of Azul is perfect, a short drive to the beach for a change of scene or visit Albufeira or the fantastic Zoomarine for the day - so much to see and do!

The local restaurants and shops are in walking distance and are very welcoming as are all the Portuguese people. We hire a car and it's great for getting out for a little retail therapy too - loving the Algarve Shopping Mall.

All the staff at Principal Office are so friendly and organise and look after everything. Welcome food pack and poolside towels are most appreciated. The villa is clean and the maids, gardeners and pool men are polite and very efficient. Florence is a star and extremely helpful! Thank you for taking care of us again.

We love it so much we have returned numerous times: So the best recommendation I can give is that we have already booked for next summer!

Once you have experienced Villa Azul you won't want to go anywhere else!

Villa Azul is situated in Vale de Parra and has many excellent local restaurants with some of them in walking distance of the villa. The Blue Flag beaches of Galé are just 2 km away, also it's a short drive to several other beautiful beaches like Castello, Evaristo and São Lourenço. Albufeira town and Marina are 8 kms away, around 10 minutes 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. Guia town is 5kms and is famous for many good value restaurants specialising in chicken piri piri. The nearest supermarket is 1 km away. Algarve Shopping the largest shopping complex in the region is a 10 minutes drive, with Multiplex Cinemas and Ten Pin Bowling.
