Excellent villa, very clean and very well equipped we wanted for nothing, would definitely go back. Communication with the owner was excellent, Janette was very approachable, friendly and responded very quickly. Our first time to this area, loved it and will definitely be back.

A beautiful villa with everything you could need provided. We stayed as a group of 6 ( 3 couples) and it was perfect as each bedroom has its own ensuite. Lots of space inside and outside the villa so we never felt on top of each other. The villa was spotless on arrival and extremely comfortable. There are a couple of small bars nearby but the main town is about a 20 minute walk. Janette the owner of the villa has been fantastic, she even booked a lovely restaurant for us which was great. The only slight downside is the noise you get from the road, we did not notice it at all at night it was just during the day whilst sitting by the pool. Highly recommended and we will definitely be returning.

We stayed at Villa Belar from 4th to 14th June for my husband&rsquos 40th birthday. From the initial enquiry to the final confirmation Janette has been so helpful. Janette suggested I might try the cake shop round the corner (as it was my husband&rsquos birthday) and provided full details for me, how thoughtful. I collected the on 5th June. Absolutely brilliant what a lovely thought and a great touch to add to the special occasion (thanks Janette). The villa itself sits in Concei&ccedil&atildeo about 1km from the centre of Cabanas which is a lovely area. It only takes approx. 10 mins to walk down to the front and is a nice walk at night when the heat dro ps a little! We had a late flight night in and Janette was so accommodating. We were met at the villa by Martin and Filoca, who couldn&rsquot have been more helpful, they showed us round and explained where everything was. It was absolutely spotless, had everything you could ever need and I thought the baskets in the bathrooms containing left over sun cream, shampoo etc. from other parties was such a great idea and a lovely touch. We saw both Martin and Filoca a few times throughout our stay and they both came to say goodbye on the day we left (then preceded to clean the villa for 8 hours in the heat!) &ndash we know this as we spent the day round the pool before leaving for our flight. They are both a credit in the cleanliness and success of the villa. The outside area is also an absolute treat, nice gardens and pretty climbing flowers, not forgetting the swallows which was very soothing to watch. One other villa was occupied at the time however there was plenty of areas for everyone to put beds etc. The beach of Ilha de Cabanas is just a short boat trip across the waters of the lagoon and there are several water taxis along the front running frequent crossings to the ilha! This is a must for any visitor to Cabanas as the beach and facilities over there are out of this world along with the little caf&eacutes on your return trip who offer a cooling drink and some nice tapas! My husband and brother-in-law booked golf prior to flying out with and played 4 rounds in total (two at Benamor, one at Quinta de Cima and the final one at Quinta da Ria) they thoroughly enjoyed all 3 courses (I&rsquom sure they would have fitted a few more in!) We ate out a few times during our stay and must say that the food at the Hairy Lemon is totally amazing, the fish is succulent and cooked to perfection, the steak on hot stone is huge, the beer goes down well and the prices are very reasonable (win win!). We had one overcast day (lucky us) so we made use of the car we hired and we headed out towards Vila Real de Santo Antonio and dro pped in at Manta Rota and Monte Gordo on the way. The Eastern Algarve as a whole is a lovely area thus warranting us returning to the area for the 4th time. Overall I cannot fault anything with the villa, it is beautiful and Janette should be very proud. We would highly recommend the property and will definitely be re-booking. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. From Lisa and Andy and Louise and Paul

We stayed for a week in June. The villa really exceeded what we were expecting. Its really very nice, much more so than the photos suggest. The owners have provided pretty much everything you could need. We were met at the villa by Martin who was really helpful. We had the pool to ourselves which was great but I think there would be plenty of space with the neighbouring villas occupied. The location is quite close to a main road but plenty of trees mean you are not overlooked. The local area is very quiet and not at all touristy but Tavira is a few minutes drive away. Vila Real de Santo Antonio and the Spanish border are 30 minutes away. Overall a lovely villa and great place to stay!

My wife and I joined our son and his wife who were staying for two weeks 11th -25 Sept 2012. We could not believe it, what a fantastic villa. It has everything you could possibly want. From the moment you step in the door you feel at home. The villa is in excellent condition and is fitted with all mod cons. The local area is so peaceful and the beaches are superb. We tended to drive out to the beach at Santa Luzia just the other side of Tavira and although it was a few miles journey the beach was well worth it. Tavira is also such a lovely town. The prices of food and drink in the local shops and restaurants is relatively cheap. We could not fault the villa or the location and do hope we can get the chance to get back again hopefully for 2 weeks next time.
