A really lovely Villa. in possibly the best position on the development with a great view of the countryside, dont let the condition of the approach roads and some unfinished Villas on the development put you off, the garden and pool area are top notch, inside the Villa everything that you need is there, well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge with British TV channels, large bedrooms all with newly fitted out bathrooms and nice comfy beds, car is essential.
We had a great time at the villa and the weather was lovely for the end of September, Sue, the British local manager was very good and meets you on arrival and gives you the all the info that you need about the villa and area, We would defiantly book this Villa again, and would recommend it to all our friends and family.
This is a beautiful villa, extremely well appointed with all bedrooms, having ensuite bathrooms. The villa has everything you need to make a very comfortable holiday. The services of the local manager (Sue) were excellent and this was my third stay at this wonderful villa. Will definitely book again
What a wonderful villa.... Four brilliant sized bedrooms, all with larger than average bathrooms! Even the smallest bathroom was twice the size of anything you get in your usual hotel. Upstairs bedroom had lovely views over the pool and into the country from the balcony, and two of the downstairs rooms opened up onto the pool. Everything was spotless upon our arrival!
Kitchen was well equipped with everything you could ever need, plenty of plates and glasses. A large fridge and dishwasher....which is great because who wants to be washing pots on holiday!
The BBQ was great, with a choice of the smaller outdoor table just outside the kitchen doors, or the covered veranda with large outdoor table.
The gardens were second to none, and a lot of time and money has obviously gone into getting it perfect, theres even a little pond! And the pool is a brilliant, perfect size... With plenty of sun loungers! Everything you need for some serious relaxation.
We didnt use the games room as the weather was always too good, but theres a table tennis and football table, which I imagine kids would appreciate!
You have total privacy during your stay, apart from maybe a five minute check from the pool guy or gardener!
You cannot have a stay here without taking a trip to the local bistro...about a 10 minute walk away (took us longer the first time, as we got lost) The food is delicious and a real taste of local cuisine...the people are so friendly and its and absolute bargain! It was perfect for those nights when you dont want to drive anywhere... We went back for our last night meal, steak on the stone is great!
Supermarket in Olhao is 10 mins drive away and has everything you could need for a good old BBQ!
The only thing which I was a little unsure about to start with was as you drive in from the other side of Vista Elite, the roads are really bad with potholes, but that should not put you off at all just drive a little slower! People have said that the location makes the price a bit excessive but I completely disagree.... The location is just enough out of the hustle and bustle for some peace and quiet and to see the real Portugal. But within a few minutes drive you can be in the next town or on your way to one of the bigger towns. Which in my eyes makes it pretty much perfect!
Overall we all had a wonderful time, and will definitely be keeping this villa in mind for any future trips to Portugal! Thanks for a lovely stay!
(The pictures on here dont show it as good as it looks in real life if you ask us)
A lovely villa, with modern fittings and a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms are all spacious and the bathrooms had all been recently renovated prior to our stay.
The pool area is well equipped with patio furniture and lounge chairs, ideal for relaxing. The villa is on a slight rise, giving great views over the local countryside from the garden.
All in all a very enjoyable stay at an excellent villa. Highly recommended.
We have hired several villas in the Algarve over a number of years and this the best so far. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the villa with an excellent pool large shaded terrace and a large furnished pergola for outside dining. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils and with glassware, crockery and cutlery for our party of eight.
The villa met our expectations with the exception that aircon (which is obligatory) was only available at night from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., when we expected it would be available at any time to use as we required. The villa is located in one of the best locations on the Vista Elite site, but the access roads into the site from either direction are littered with large pot holes which required careful driving to avoid damage to the car especially at night. There is no off road parking, but plenty of kerbside parking room in front of the villa on a good road surface. At night a torch is needed to obtain the door key from the key safe.
We were treated well by the local Manager and on arrival we were very pleased with the preparation of the villa.
The excellence of the villa is not complemented by the remote location of the Vista Elite site and the surrounding rural roads. Bearing this in mind we considered the price a bit excessive.
