A beautiful villa and very good management service

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 adults, one toddler and two 8 month old babies. The layout worked out quite well although a separate downstairs toilet would have been a bonus. The management staff went the extra mile to find out if there was a blender in the kitchen for us and also acted promptly when we queried the heating in the swimming pool. The bathrooms have all been upgraded since the photos were taken and were all lovely but there is now only one bath in the downstairs double bedroom - useful to know this if you have babies who need a bath. The beds were all quite firm, plentiful linen and towels were available including towels for the loungers outside. Plenty of equipment, crockery and cutlery in the kitchen with a large fridge and another in the utility room. Take your own dishwasher tablets to save buying a large box, but there are good supermarkets nearby (Oceana cheaper than Apolina) and a massive one called Continente in the shopping mall area on the main road just above Guia - plus an Aldi but not as much choice there. There were lots of toys and inflatables for the pool in a shed outside which was extremely helpful and useful. The steps down to the pool were a bit of a pain at the end of the day when taking things up and down to the outside table and it really would be a lot more sociable if the bbq was moved a bit nearer to the table area. We had to pass things in and out of the kitchen window and with it being at the back of the house, whoever was cooking didn't get to join in the fun. We kept the shutters closed most of the time to keep the house cool - and safe - and unfortunately this made the house a little dingy. The maids came twice a week which was unexpected and welcome. It was a good half hour's walk to the beach - felt longer when it was hot - but there are beautiful beaches all round with excellent beach bars for lunch or an evening meal. Never had a bad meal in Portugal yet. There is a Tapas Bar close by which is excellent and others within easy walking distance. Scoobies Pool bar is walkable too and good for crazy golf and other activities for the kids for a change. They will also run you home in a minibus if the kids are a bit tired. The weather was very kind to us - in fact a little too hot at 33 degrees one day - but all in all an excellent holiday. I would recommend this area - beautiful beaches, quiet not commercialised but with villas like this, great for a family holiday.

Beautiful villa,relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

There were nine of us in our party with ages ranging from 4-73.The villa with it's own swimmimg pool was perfect.Most of the rooms were ensuite & the kitchen had all the equipment you required.It was nice having the maid service too They also provided clean towels.Nearby beaches were sandy & clean but we spent a lot of the time round the pool as the outside area was clean & well equipped.

The welcome food pack was a pleasant surprise but meant we could relax a while before we went shopping.

A big thank you to Florence & the team who were really helpful & helped to make a good holiday even better.We will be back!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

A family group of 9 adults shared this villa for a week. Plenty of space and the owners seem to have thought of everything. An extra fridge for beer, every kitchen utensil you could imagine, air con, light airy rooms, English tv channels, books, DVD player, bbq, walk in showers and much more. Loved the roof terrace and the heated pool got plenty of use! We didn't hire a car as there were plenty of restaurants close by. We loved Angies and had a nice meal at the tapas restaurant 5 mins away. We used taxis to get into the strip and for the big supermarket run but the spar was close enough to walk daily.

Florence and the staff at principal villas were fantastic from the initial booking enquiry right up to the quick repayment of the breakage deposit. They organised everything for us with airport transfers and as the villa was not in use the day we left we were able to stay later. We will be back!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing. There was 7 adults in our party and the villa was still very spacious. It was clean and tidy. Loved that most rooms had on suite bathrooms. I also liked the details, like the fact that inflatables were provided for the pool ect and the outdoor BBQ. Brilliant. All in all we all loved our stay and would definitely recommend this Villa to any holiday makers looking for a quite relaxing holiday.

Located on a quiet road in Sesmarias and just 1km to the beautiful 'Blue Flag' Castelo beach. A/C, Wi-Fi & Games Room. There are many restaurants and bars in the area within walking distance, including one of the best restaurants in the whole area. Great location.

Excellent family villa with a private pool and relaxing outside area. Close to several stunning beaches.

Close to some of the best beaches in the world like Praia Sao Rafael ,Praia do Castelo, Praia da Galé and many others...

Full A/C. Games room. Wi-Fi.

It has the advantage of a large roof terrace with panoramic views over the countryside and the Sea.

Albufeira Town and its marina , famous for its nightlife and lively and atmospheric Old Town is a five minute drive away. Also only 10 minutes drive to the fantastic Zoomarine which has so much to offer including a 4D Cinema and a spectacular Dolphin show.

A great day out for all the family especially the kids! Great location.
