About Krys Isone
Hello I want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, so please feel free to contact me to ask any questions or requests you may have to ensure a first class holiday for you and your family or friends. Looking forward to speaking with you Krys
Krys Isone purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Krys Isone chose Almancil
We bought this villa in 2004. It is within the Golden Triangle yet is in a semi rural position which means you can get well away from the busier parts of the Algarve. Apart from the two houses either side, our neighbours are all Portuguese. The Portuguese are exceptionally friendly and almost all speak excellent English.
What makes this Villa unique
We use the villa as a home and we do not consider it solely as a rental/business opportunity. We hope that you, too, will feel completely at home and where you will see that we have tries to think of everything you will need. There is a travel cot & bedding, baby changing mat, stair gate and a high chair for those of you with little ones.
Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Perfect Holiday Home
We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this amazing property. After much searching we are so glad we settled on this one!
Any queries we had during the booking process were quickly responded to by the owner Krys. Including lots of helpful advice on car rental, local supermarkets/restaurants/nearby attractions.
The villa is beautifully decorated and and had everything you could possibly need, making it a great home -away-from-home.
We made great use of the large pool, which has plenty of shade from the scorching Portugal sun. The table tennis table was a huge hit with our teenage children in the evenings. On the one day where it unusually rained, we watched a DVD from a good selection of movies.
One the best things was that it feels like a well loved home and doesn't have the stripped back, empty feeling holiday homes often have. It has everything you could possibly need- the little things made all the difference. Hand soap,washing up liquid and condiments,olive oil etc There was even a good supply of sun cream , which we were happy to use and replace.
It is extremely private, with high hedges around the beautiful garden. There is good security, so we felt very safe. The electric shutters on the windows meant we had amazing restful sleep in the completely dark and air conditioned bedrooms.
It is situated in the town of Amancil, which is not particularly attractive in itself, but is within a short drive to plenty of more attractive places to eat and explore.
Look no further than this villa if you want a super family holiday. We would love to return.
Amazing - as always!
Back again to this beautiful villa - we just love it - it's perfect for our young family. This time we have one extra little one and as ever - everything we needed for a holiday with two toddlers was there ready and waiting for us and made life so easy. The weather was perfect - the pool was lovely and warm and the kids didn't leave the water for the whole week! Our children are still a little young to visit local attractions so we spent the holiday around the pool, at the beach and at the new shopping centre - Mar Shopping - which is fantastic for young children, there is so much there to entertain them. Thank you to the owner, Krys, for making our stay so lovely and so easy. We will certainly be back next year!
Another fabulous holiday
We have been to this property on several occasions now and always have the best time! The owner has thought of everything and it is definitely like going home..........but with beautiful weather.....and a fabulous pool!
Thanks for your kind words Sandra. Glad you had a good time.
Amazing holiday home
Perfect holiday, the owners were amazing. The information they left and filled us in with was unbelievable. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa was perfect, couldn’t fault a thing. We had a problem with the tv, contacted the owners within 24 hours the problem was fixed.
Thanks so much to Krys, bill and Sharon for an amazing holiday and making it so smooth running.
Thanks for these kind words Rachael (and for taking the time to write them). I am so pleased your holiday was a success for you and your family.
A quiet part if the golden triangle but still near enough to enjoy everything that it offers - beautiful beaches, good good and drink and a feeling if relaxation and safety.
Casa do Meio gave us a refuge at the end if every day with its great facilities and gorgeous private pool. We will be back.
Jean and family. (Spent a week with Krys).
We really enjoyed our stay in this spacious, modern & very clean villa. The villa was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms were very comfortable with an outstanding master bedroom. We particularly loved the garden which was well looked after with beautiful flowers, shrubs & trees, it was a pleasure to dine at the outside table in these beautiful surroundings. The pool was great & the area around it was well furnished with sun loungers & umbrella. We love the location which is quiet but close to all amenities & the beaches. We would really love to return in the future.
Thankyou for this complimentary review. I am so pleased you had a lovely holiday and hope you will visit the villa in Almancil again. A pleasure dealing with you. Regards Krys
