Lovely family villa.
Family of 7 stayed for a week in April. The villa had plenty of space for us all both internally and externally. The garden has high walls nd not overlooked- a lovely place to relax. everything a family could need was provided, ie washing machine, fully equipped kitchen, towels etc. With added bonus of the games room that provided entertainment for the evenings and the rainy days. Pool is perfect size for small children to splash around and for a dip to cool off. The property is in a Good location to explore the Algarve, not far from albufeira and some good family attractions. The description says ‘20 minutes walk to the beach’ not sure which way was the best way to walk but the quickest we did it was in 40 minutes, however the beaches were worth the walk- absolutely beautiful.
Appreciated the midweek maid service where they changed the towels and took out the bins and recycling.
Thank you for your appreciation of Villa Retiro, we are thrilled to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Indeed there are different ways to get to the beach but as you say, the beaches are worth the walk. Perhaps in a future stay, you'll be interested in a boat trip to the caves of some of those beaches, it is a lovely family outing.
Wishing you all the best.
We loved our stay at Villa Retiro. The villa itself has ample of space inside and out. There is outside seating areas at the back and side of the property and the pool was great for a dip to cool down. My son loved the pool and football table which was an added bonus.
The villa is about a 5/10 min walk into the local town where there is a few cafes, bars and supermarket - I would recommend Polosul which is the cafe on the roundabout - staff are lovely.
War alles genau so wie beschrieben. Überraschend 2 x wõchentlich Handtuch und Bettwäsche Wechsel.
Problemlose Übergaben der Schlüssel.
Ruime nette gezellige villa, met een leuk zwembad.
Villa is ruim binnen iets wat gedateerd maar verder is wel alles aanwezig wat je nodig hebt. Tuin is erg mooi, niet groot maar je kan er wel lekker zitten en het zwembad ziet er mooi uit. In het najaar (september) heb je niet veel zon meer in de tuin, rond 4 uur is er geen zon meer bij het zwembad.
Casa grande, bem equipada, limpa, em local sossegado. Bom serviço.
Alles wunderbar 😊
Wir haben zu 5 Personen und einem Kind eine wunderschöne Woche in diesem Haus verbracht!
Es fehlte an nichts wir haben uns richtig gut erholen können. Schön ist es das jedes Schlafzimmer ein eigenes Bad verfügt so hatten wir trotzdem jeder seine Privatsphäre. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
Von der Lage fanden wir es super das es nicht ganz so zentral liegt (nicht mitten in Albufaira) aber trotzdem jeder schöne Strand nur paar fahrminuten entfernt liegt!
