Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly like the description. Actually we were even more impressed. The villa is really top, as we arrived we couldn't believe it. The garden really good mantained and the house just beautiful and clean. We spent there two amazing weeks, nice weather, nice people, good food and a lot more. We traveled with an another family, in total we were 10 people. The house was cleaned once a week and even we got new towels. Thank you Maria for everything, we just had such a wonderful time in your villa. Hope to see you again. Greetings from the suisse people. Rebekka, Thomas, Sandra, Marcello and 6 kids.

we definately go back next year!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation in this beautiful villa. The situation is perfect, in a peaceful rural setting away from the hassle of Albufeira, but at the same time only 10 minutes away from the old center and the beaches. The property was much bigger than we expected and completely secured. Our 5 small kids could play the whole day in a safe environment while we spent hours around the lovely pool terrace's table. The villa is very well maintained, the garden and pool at perfection and we received cleaning in the villa 2 times per week. There were some extra's we didn’t expected, like a Jacuzzi bad, a piano and a fantastic outside BB area.

We were very well received. The owners are fantastic and very helpful. They live next door, but are very discreet. Whenever we needed something, we could call them and they gave us always a solution right away. When we told them that it was our little son’s birthday, they even brought us wine and baked a birthday cake for him.

The owner is a famous Fado singer and one evening we were invited to go to his performance in a lovely restaurant in the city. It was an unforgettable evening. Thank you very much.

We’ll definitely go back to the villa next year. It was just perfect for us.

June 2012

  • 2 of 5

We are a large extended family with small children and we stayed in the villa for a fortnight in June 2012. Our first impressions of the villa were great, it was a beautiful property and the owners were very welcoming on our arrival. The villa is very spacious, however I would recommend hiring a car, as it was up to €15 for a taxi each way, into Albufeira.

One major flaw to us was the amount of privacy we got - the owners live in the villa just next door and the gardens are connected by a gate in which they seemed to just let themselves through every day to do things like check the pool, water the garden etc. This was not particularly a problem but would have been better if they had called first or even knocked to let us know that they were coming.

The villa was cleaned a few times a week by the owner and her employees, however our family members who slept on the sofa bed and used the spare blankets ended up covered in flea bites and had to take a trip to the pharmacy to purchase repellent and antihistamines.

The family did not take a damage deposit on our arrival, however they did give us a bill at the end of the stay for 2 sunbeds which had cracked when our family members had simply sat down on them.

One final thing that I would mention is although the villa is surrounded by a fence and a secure gate, there were times when we feared for our safety - as the villa is in quite a secluded area, surrounded by only a few other villas and in the countryside (we noticed some 'odd' characters around the area coming in and out). There was one evening that we heard a car outside of the villa in the early hours of the morning and when we went to look out of the window there was a man who looked like he was trying to enter the gate. When we contacted the owners by phone, in a panic, we established that it was them checking that we had locked the gate.

All in all a lovely property and we had an enjoyable holiday, however the privacy issue was a major flaw to us, and given the money that we paid, we would have expected the owners to respect our privacy a little better. We won't be returning and probably wouldn't recommend the villa to friends/family.

Owner's Response: I find your comment quit strange as I email you to ask about the payment for the damage caused in our villa (plates, doors, sunbeds´s, bed clothing) and you never answer. Every single house need´s pool treatment ans Gardner service (once a week) and that´s impossible to do at night, don't you thing? About the mosquitos at the area, if you leave all windows open with light´s on, as you did every days, during your stay, what are you waiting for? This is Algarve and is hot. The comment from the gate must be a joke, as you did jump the gate a couple of times at night and day and we thought that someone was stilling the villa, but for our surprise was you!!!!!! In your country don't you use the keys or front door? why do you jump gates here? You highly damage our villa leaving the villa with out notice and we still waiting for the payment. For 6 years that we rent the Villa and we never had a complain a such behaver. You don't need to recommend as for sure you will not be welcome here

rees family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a terrific two weeks at this villa. The villa was perfect for us as it was our family holiday for adults and 4 kids and had the essential ingrediants of a big pool and a beautiful and well kept garden for a game of cricket and soft tennis. The pool is the star when we go away and this pool was a delight. Nice and big with a shallow end for the kids to play and a deep end where I could jump in and cool off. The villa itself inside was very, very clean and clinical and all done to a high standard and the position of the villa in the countryside suited us perfectly. The villa was also safe and secure with a fence surrounding it and a large gate but only 10 minutes from Albufeira by car. The Praia family are lovely people and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. I can only highly recommend this villa to anyone thinking of the Algarve and from our experience they will be enjoying a super villa and be looked after very well by the Praia family.

Perfect holiday in a perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

To summarize our stay in the villa in one word: PERFECT.

We traveled with a group of 10 people (6 adults and 4 children). From the first contact with the owners when we were planning our holiday until the moment we left te villa everything was perfect:

- accurate and quick response to all our questions by email before our arrival;

- friendly and warm welcome on arrival.

- good contact with the owners during our stay in person (they live in the property next door but are very respectful to your privacy) or by mobile phone and/or email;

- villa looked exactly in real as the pictures on the website and is very well equipped;

- cleaning of the property (2 times/week), pool/garden (almost everyday in the very early morning - we heard the gardener sometimes watering the lawn/plants or cleaning the pool but never in a loud or annoying manner;

- changing of the towels and bed linen together with the cleaning of the villa.

- Most of the bed rooms have an ensuite bathroom so no waiting times there and plenty of privacy when you travel with multiple families.

The villa is located in a rural area with lots of privacy (entirely fenced) and no noise of neighbors, traffic, etc. To get around you do need a car:

- supermarket (10 mins)

- beaches (Albufeira 15 mins / Gale 20 mins / Falesia 25 mins)

- town (Albufeira 15 mins)

There is plenty of parking space for the car(s) in the courtyard.

We would highly recommend the villa to people looking for a relaxing holiday in a luxurious and private environment that is still very close to the required services (supermarket, town, beaches, etc.).

Once again we would like to thank the Praia family for making this an unforgettable summer holiday for us.
