7 bedroom villa rental in the Algarve, Portugal, with private pool
March 2020

We were a party of 9 for my Husband’s 70th birthday. We know the area really well and wanted the family to enjoy it with us. The situation was great. The villa is a good size, however it is tired and could do with some updating. For example, the bedrooms downstairs did not have mirrors. The en-suite didn’t have anywhere to hang towels. You have to unplug the fridge to use the microwave. It’s small things and if people are going to pay a lot of money in summer months they may not be particularly satisfied. It sleeps 15 which may be a bit cramped. The balcony area and pool were great especially as the weather was so good even in March.

15 bedroom villa to rent in the Algarve, Portugal
February 2020

Online images of this villa do not do it justice. It is much bigger than it looks and is highly equipped to cater for large groups. Loved the bluetooth sound system in the living room which was so handy. Miguel was on hand for any requests and organised numerous minibuses for us all to get out and around. He was waiting at the airport on our arrival and was prompt in picking us up to go home too. We all really enjoyed our stay, would recommend to anyone and would return without hesitation.

4 bedroom villa with private pool in the Algarve, Portugal
August 2019

Gorgeous villa. As lovely as the pictures, bathrooms all new and kitchen well equipped. The thing that makes this villa is the outside space, pool area is large with gardens on all sides of the villa. Plenty of space for large groups to spread out and not be on top of each other. The dining table in the garden room is a lovely space to sit and the garden is so pretty at night when The fairy lights come on. Really private and not overlooked. Location is excellent, lovely residential area with a handful of restaurants within walking distance ( one being the old course clubhouse which was lovely). Small supermarket and bakery / coffee shop a short walk away. Marina 10 euros by taxi and lots of numbers in The villa. I contacted the owner a few times with queries prior to going and he always responded quickly and was helpful. Check in at the villa was very good, Met by Lynda who was very helpful and available during the stay if any issues. The only reason that I rated the advert accuracy as 4 star was that the roof terrace wasn’t accessible which disappointed us but to be honest the grounds are so big we didn’t really miss it. In conclusion a great villa, great location and would definately return / recommend.

14 bedroom holiday villa in the Algarve, Portugal, with private pool
August 2019

Absolutely fantastic bunch of Villas that have been very well looked after. Far enough off the trip to enjoy a quiet holiday and close enough if you want to nip out and enjoy your night. Amazing for a large group, highly highly recommend this place. Speaking to the owner to organise and arrange transport, they were absolutely faultless in their help and organisation, I could have never have catered for a group of this size without their help. Just brilliant
