A total retreat

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I would say before you leave home for Cerro De Bica is, be prepared to be relaxed. The villa is remote, which gives you complete and utter peace and tranquility. The villa is so well equipped and has such great spaces both indoors and out. The photos are accurate but I was still surprised at the amount of space we had. The pool area is beautiful with a choice of outdoor seating areas. The indoor communal areas are cool with the lovely tiled floors and again, well equipped. The kids loved the vast selection of DVD's and the Wii. There is a range of board games which we worked our way through each evening and a selection of books. All the rooms are spacious and cool and the beds comfy. Although no air con, there are ample fans throughout the villa which were more than suffice for our stay in July. David was on the end of the phone for questions and queries and nothing was too much trouble for him. A true gent.

The local village has a great supermarket which is no more than 10mins drive away and we found everything we could have wanted, including fantastic fish and shellfish choices. Try the Portuguese wine - its cheap and delicious.

We drove down to Albufeira a couple of times although quickly retreated to the villa for some peace as it was so busy. Saying that, find the marina as its a bit quieter with a choice of restaurants overlooking some amazing boats. We did go out on a Caves & Dolphins boat trip (pick one of the companies with smaller boats - its worth it) and while I was a little skeptical we'd see any dolphins, I was proved wrong. What an amazing experience and the kids still talk about this being the best trip yet.

Silves is a lovely day out and is only about 45mins drive from the villa. We went a bit further afield to Tavira which is a lovely little town although I'm not sure worth the drive. On our last day we hung out at Zoomarine. I'd say this was mostly aimed at younger kids although my teenagers enjoyed the dolphin display and the pools.

All in all, a great 2 week break at the villa.

utterly blissful

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated in a quiet spot and we can see neighbours in the distance but our paths never crossed. The villa is of a very high standard and lacks for nothing.

The owner and agent are all very helpful and geographically there is access to other parts of Portugal, should you need it.

We intend to return and the sooner the better!

Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Because this was a surprise birthday treat for me, we used this villa end of March/beginning of april, so was not willing to use the pool which was a great shame as the pool is amazing! The Villa itself is very modern and was equipped with absolutely everything one would need. It is in a very tranquil place, with bird song being the only noise. Perfect. I would definitely recommend "Cerra De Bica" for those wanting complete peace and quiet away from everything. We will book again, but next time late summer. We have been to Portugal a few times and love it anyway.

Excellent accommodation in a very private setting

  • 5 of 5

Really fantastic villa with all necessities catered for. Beautiful pool which was a life saver to offset the 33deg temperatures we got every day. Fantastic early morning walks, sunrises, sunsets, and a brilliant dawn chorus. Above all the villa was so private. Not overlooked and nearest neighbour 300mt down the drive. Really recommend this property if you're looking for a relaxing chill out holiday, look no further.

Fantastic villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay. The villa is in a gorgeous spot, away from it all but still with easy access to Pingo (supermarket), Ourique and the algarve. There was so much indoor and outdoor space. We spent a lot of time just relaxing by the pool, and we all used the pool a great deal at all times of the day. A must for cooling off too as the temperatures were mid-30s the whole time. Thoroughly recommend.
