Location was excellent villa a bit dated inside. Sofa's only seated 5 people which wasn't very suitable when there was 6 adults. The patio doors out to the pool could do with handles on the outside as they were quite awkward to open when closed. There was an issue when we arrived getting the keys to enter the villa as the key safe was at the front door and we were not informed that the gate was open allowing us access to the keysafe. One othe issue was the dumping site right outside the villa it was getting bigger and bigger as the days went on. Although the bin was moved by one of the neighbors and a sign was erected 2 days before we left it was still being used to dump rubbish. This is something that would need to be addressed for future bookings

Lovely villa but a few problems whilst we were there.

  • 3 of 5

The villa itself is large, clean and spacious. The outdoor pool area is great and there's plenty of sunbeds, outdoor seating and the BBQ was great. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a good size as is the living room and kitchen. The kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine which was especially useful when travelling with two young children. The villa is located with a few restaurants nearby within walking distance, and a few more within a 5-10 minute drive. We did have to drive to the nearest supermarket to buy food shopping but had hired a car so this wasn’t a problem. There were 4 beaches nearby within 10-20 minute walks, which are small quiet coves not overly busy or crowded, sunbeds were available to hire not that we used these.

The mattresses on every bed were horrid, very hard and uncomfortable. The worst night’s sleep we have had in a long time. We had just one pillow each in all of the bedrooms, which seemed to be very old and lumpy. We were told when we arrived that they hadn't finished getting the property ready and towels etc would arrive the next day which they did, but no more bedding was provided.

The photos make it look like you have access to the roof terrace however this is not accessible and the door is permanently locked.

The main issue that we had was the pool heating. We paid an additional 210Euros for pool heating so that it would be a consistent temperature warm enough for the kids to be able to use the pool – the main reason for staying in a private villa. By the second day the pool was much colder and remained this way until two days before we left. The pool man came to clean the pool and agreed that it was cold and made a phone call, and a number of people came over a period of four days to check and tinker with various things who then told us that it was all working as normal. The pool temperature varied significantly and we were unable to use the pool comfortably for the middle of the holiday, and then children wouldn’t go in at all. We had to make a number of phone calls and this did put a negative on our holiday and we had hoped to enjoy and spend time in the pool rather than be chasing up phone calls and having people come in and out of the villa doing things around the pool. We were refused even a partial refund of the 210Euros which I am very unhappy about as clearly the pool heating was not working. . If you are considering booking heating I would be very wary and make sure you get specific guarantees.

Very enjoyable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The villa was comfortable and clean. It had everything we could need. The location was good. Didn't need a car. Local taxis were cheap enough if we wanted to go into Albufeira, just 10 euros. Around the corner from the Villa is an excellent bar 'Scooby's' which is fantastic for families. The local Spar we found cheaper than the big supermarket and it was closer, just a 10 minute walk. Lots of lovely restaurants close by. Lots of small beaches just a 10 minute walk and the larger beach was around 20 minute walk. We had the food hamper which was worth having... Fruit, meat, cheese, bread, wine, water... all the essentials, tea, coffee, milk. We went in April and the weather was lovely when the sun was out, but I would suggest to pay that little extra and have the pool heated. It was lovely and warm all day and night... The villa did look a little more 'tired' than in the pictures, but this didn't spoil our stay. I have to say though... it was my first stay in a villa so I have nothing to compare it to.

Beautiful Spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for two weeks during our visit to the Algarve. It was a great location as a base for visits to the area attractions. The description of this villa is exactly as listed on the site. Very clean, spacious, well equipped and centrally located. It is an easy walk to the beaches as well as restaurants. Good grocery stores are close by and we were close to shopping centres and artisans. The kitchen was well equipped and includes a gas stove. Bedrooms are spacious and have their own heating and cooling units. The property management team at Algarve Properties was very welcoming and promptly took care of all our questions. We would definitely recommend this villa for your stay in the Algarve.

Une villa très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un semaine très agréable dans cette villa.

Elle est spacieuse, très bien située, très propre.

Nous avons fait chauffer la piscine, ce qui représente un coût non négligeable mais cela valait le coup !

La deco est un peu trop « rustique » à notre goût et mériterait d’être modernisée.

Il manque quelques accessoires de cuisine (saladiers, couvert sur en plus grand nombre) mais la cuisine est fonctionnelle.

Attention les lits sont durs.

Les personnes de l’agence sont très serviables, disponibles et agréables.
