Family from Tulla, Ireland Jul 2017

Ofir Villa was the perfect family holiday home. Everything that you could want from towels to shampoo and shower gel is provided. Our children loved the pool and the WIFI. Cannot praise Sandra, Jose, Marta and Diogo highly enough for their kindness and helpfulness. For future guests the hosts provided a lovely welcome pack (including wine, cheese, butter, ham) a very well stocked larder (pasta, rice, tea, coffee, sugar). As well as dishwasher tablets, washing powder; cleaning supplies. There are plenty of restaurants and a beautiful beach within walking distance, but a car is necessary. The house never got too hot ; the high walls around it made it very safe for children. We would be very happy to return . Our thanks once again to our lovely hosts. The Kinsella Family, Co.

Villa offir is one of the best villas we have stayed in. It is beautifully furnished and very well equipped its light and airy it was like a home from home. It is in a very quiet area and is perfect for a quiet and relaxing holiday. I would recommend that you hire a car as the larger supermarkets are a bit further away and plus you can visit other places. The villa owners are brilliant they were very happy to help with any problems that we had and jose was there to meet us when we arrived and we were later than we should have been and he still drove us around to show us the local area. You couldn't get a nicer couple as we also meet sandra his wife. We would definitely go back and holiday there again. The Fisher's and Poynters

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful villa - just wish we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend staying here. Everything you need is provided and the owners are very helpful.

Family from Leeds, United Kingdom Aug 2016

Fantastic villa in a great location. We stayed with my parents and our toddler and it was perfect - great facilities, very well equipped and immaculate. We were a little concerned about the lack of air con before we went but the villa is really well designed to stay cool and it wasn't an issue at all, even when temperatures hit 30 degrees. The kitchen is really well equipped and we got plenty of use out of the barbecue and outdoor seating (complete with enormous umbrella!). The pool and garden area was lovely with plenty of seating available (sun loungers and chairs). Even beach towels are provided.

Locally, there is a good choice of restaurants about 1km walk away. We tried a number and found them all great value for money with good food (and house wine - the vinha verde was a revelation!). There's also a mini market at a similar distance. A little further afield (maybe 1.5km) there's the centre of Apulia with more shops (eg bakers, butchers and fish) and restaurants. The beach about 50m away was great. It can get a little breezy later in the day as other reviewers have said but the pool was more sheltered.

Unless you're happy to spend all of the time on the beach and by the pool, you do need a car (we used Hertz in Esposende). There is plenty to explore locally, we particularly enjoyed Porto, Braga, Viana do Castelo, Ponte de Lima, Ponte de Barca and the market at Barcelos. There are a number of toll roads so we found it worthwhile having the electronic toll calculator activated in the hire car (Hertz offered this when we collected it).

For travel with children, there is a sturdy high chair and nice travel cot which was made up with a lovely bedding set. It's full cot size which was a relief with a long toddler! There are security blinds so we could leave the bedroom window open overnight and at nap time. The living areas of the ground floor can be closed off from the stairs (it's a sliding door from the lounge). There are only 7 steps up to the bedrooms floor. We were glad we'd taken a monitor as the doors are effective for sound proofing! We didn't see any way to close off the mezzanine floor but that was fine as we had more than enough living space in the downstairs lounge and kitchen which are a great size. Outside, the garden to the side and back of the villa are great and our daughter loved running down the slope. It was also good having grass round the pool so fewer worries about slipping. There's also a lengthy car port which was handy for outdoor play in the shade. All of the local restaurants had high chairs - no children's menus but portions were so large we could easily share! We enjoyed a couple of pizza takeaways from Urbanus Pizzeria in Apulia after bed time as well. There's a playground on the seafront in Apulia.

We'd definitely recommend Villa Ofir for a family holiday, we had a fantastic time and loved both the villa and the local area.

Amazing modern villa with everything you could possibly need, very friendly helpful owner who was there to greet us.
Would definitely return

Couple from Bognor Regis, United Kingdom Jun 2016

Beautiful villa in lovely part of Portugal. The villa had everything and more than what we could have asked for. The owners Jose and Sandra were lovely and very informative and spoke good English. This is their second home and so is kept to a very good standard. The area is very quiet and so close to the beach which is stunning, once you walk over the sand dunes, so we could take a long stroll every morning in either direction to a coffee stop and then back. The local restaurants are literally a 4 min walk, and very welcoming. A car is needed to make the most of this lovely part of Portugal, our favourite being Barcelos. Would definitely recommend this villa if you want a quiet holiday and being with nature.
