highly recommend this home and Vicky was fab in her directions and communications even got us some fans as it was exceptionally hot for our first few days .
Stunning villa, will visit again!
We booked this villa due to the proximity to the Penina Hotel as we got married there. It was perfect, a little bit more than we wanted to spend but so glad we did. The rooms and beds are very comfortable with modern decoration, the villa equipped with everything you need. The outside BBQ area is just fantastic, some days we stayed out there all day as no need to come back inside the villa. Lots of places to choose from to sit inside and outside and the 6 of us plus 2 children got lost in such a large space.
As we were getting married we had people arriving at different times popping in to say hello and everybody was wowed!
The setting is amazing, the birds flying around in the trees provide a gorgeous sound in the mornings.
With a car you can get to the supermarket in 5 mins, Alvor in less than 10mins and the Penina is situated on the N125 which is the main road right along the Algarve so portimao, Lagos, Villamorra etc are all in easy reach.
Hope to visit again as had such a brilliant stay and a perfect wedding! Will never forget
Really lovely villa
We have just arrived back from our second holiday in this villa and were just as pleased as last time although we were a bit disappointed that BBC &. ITV we're not available this year. Grace who looks after the villa is an angel and as arrived late due to delayed flight she still waited for us with a smile and some very welcome supplies.
Vicky who owes the villa is always at the end of the phone and any problems were sorted as quickly as possible.
The birds are amazing and you feel safe .We had friends staying nearby and they could not believe the position and the whole villa and gardens.we will be returning next year as it is so central for all the golf courses restaurants and beaches.
Excellent and highly recommended
There's not too much that can be added to the other positive reviews you will see from others here.
We've travelled a fair amount and stayed in many highly regarded 5* hotels, this villa offers the same standard of luxury.
The description and photos undersell the villa if anything. Its big, in a quiet location, fabulously equipped and maintained.
We plan to use the villa again so thats about as good a recommendation you can get.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Vicky's villa and it is without doubt the best we have stayed in yet. From the moment I contacted Vicky, all communication was clear and concise. Once the final bill had been paid, Vicky sent me excellent directions and a map of the Algarve which effortlessly guided us to our luxury destination with ease. The drive from the airport is only 30 mins and Vicky was on hand at all times over the phone to answer any questions or queries.
When we arrived, Grace the housekeeper met us, showed us around and went through how everything worked (at this stage the kids had already jumped in the pool!!!) The house really is impeccable, well maintained and beautifully furnished. It is especially well equipped in the kitchen with plenty of utensils, pots and pans and an amazing fridge with water dispenser. Sky TV was also a real bonus for the kids when they just wanted to chill out!! It is also huge, with no-one overlooking you except the occasional golfer jumping out of their golfing buggy. We holiday with another family of 4 and at no point did we feel cramped in, there was space to escape if so desired. Outside there is an amazing BBQ kitchen and covered eating area, both of which were well used. It was lovely lounging on the poolside sofa watching the kids play in the pool as the sun went down, the pool being the villas best asset. It is huge, very clean and a perfect temperature.
Alvor town is a 5 minute drive away and boasts some lovely restaurants, Faustinos Steakhouse being particularly good. The beach at Alvor is beautiful and if you take a walk of about 1.5 miles east towards the cliffs, you will find some amazing swimming coves and caves for great exploring. Our favourite restaurant of the holiday turned out to be an Alvor beachside restaurant called Windsurf, fantastic service and great food. Locally there are plenty of supermarkets for groceries, the nearest and biggest being Continente on the Portimao road. As an added thought for any cyclists, our husbands took their roadbikes for the duration and notched up some serious miles in the hills on Monchique each morning, perfect but hard cycling for any enthusiasts.
In summary, if you're thinking about this villa as a holiday option, you won't be disappointed and if you're booked in to go already, you're in for a real treat. Highly recommended.

WOW what a stunning villa
Have been renting villas for 15 years and this is the best we have been to the villa and grounds are amazing can not wait to go back wish we were there now. The interior is so tastefully done could have stayed there forever. Had a wonderful time and Grace the housekeeper is fab very friendly and can't do enough for you. Only bad thing was having to come home. Alvor is 5 mins away and a lovely town. Hope to see you next year :o)
Alvor is renowned for being a beautiful old fishing village in the Algarve, Portugal with its long sandy beaches that stretch on for miles. This Portuguese village has many bars, restaurants and shops that can be found in it's narrow streets where fresh sardines are grilled in open air making a great place to enjoy lunch. A 5 minute drive away Portimao caters for a real mixture of needs, it boasts a luxury Marina with yachts and up market restaurants. Its town has several large supermarkets and a new shopping/cinema complex. Praia da Rocha serves as the large coastal resort set looking out onto the beaches its cliff tops are lined with restaurants, shops, bars and clubs. A short drive away from the villa will take you up high into the mountain area of the unspoilt town of Monchique, market stalls and coffee shops are reached by spectacular views around these winding roads.
If it is speed you are after a 15 minute drive takes you to the new auto dome.
