Couple from Wimborne, United Kingdom Sep 2013

This villa was thoughtfully and well equipped and had all we needed for our stay - the boules and table tennis provided an alternative to lying by the pool. The pool and garden were kept clean and tidy and provided a lovely relaxing setting for our holiday - one of the best villa garden/pool areas weve rented to date. The urbanisation itself is unfinished and the footpaths, roads and general feel of the area suffer because of this but that didnt really affect our stay as you are only aware of it when you are driving in and out. Overall a lovely villa to rent and if we were in the area wed definitely stay here again!

From London, United Kingdom Jun 2013

Fantastic Villa, all the comforts and amenities you could ask for.

The directions to the villa were very accurate and we had no problem finding it. First impression was wow, its so big and spacious and has a beautiful landscaped garden. It has a nice size pool which is regularly maintained.

Inside the villa was very clean and comfortable. The master en-suite bedroom is really very spacious and has a lovely veranda. Perfect to sit out on for that early morning cuppa.

The information pack provided is absolutely full of places to visit and the owners personal reviews of many restaurants. Guenthers restaurant is really a class apart and has to be a must on anyones agenda - absolutely superb. A car is a must to get around

The entertainment in the villa was very good. Many cds, dvds, books and games were provided.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would want this villa on our next return to the Algarve.

Would HIGHLY recommend.

From Twyford, United Kingdom Jun 2011

Overall we were very pleased with the service we received from Paula prior to travelling out and Sue during our stay. The directions we received were excellent and on arrival we were all impressed with the cleanliness and spaciousness of the villa.

We had 3 young children in our group and were delighted to find a selec tion of toys and games plus some DVDs which kept everyone happy whilst not in the pool.

The pool surprised us all in being heated so was always a good temperature (almost too warm) when you wanted to swim. The pool was serviced throughout our stay to ensure the water was at optimum quality.

The barbeque was fantastic and we sat outside everynight on the covered patio overlooking the pool and landscaped gardens.

As mentioned in other reviews the development in which the Villa is , is still being built but this is only noticed as you drive on the approach roads to the villa and not whilst youre in the pool.

The recommendations for local restaurants were all good, especially the local bar/restautant which exceeded our expectations. The fish market in Olhao is excellent, as is the new Rio Shopping centre which is brand new with the Portugese equivalent of Waitrose.

There is plenty to do in the immediate area from the beaches at Pedras del Rei and Fuseat and also the pretty town of Tavira. The motorway is within 10 mins drive which provides easy access to some of the theme parks including Zoomarine which was especially popular with the younger members of our party.

Sue did a great job looking after us during our stay, replacing a broken coffee maker and DVD player within 24 hours of being informed.

Overall, nine of us spanning three generations had a great holiday

From Hatfield, United Kingdom Sep 2010

The villa is spacious, well equipped and clean with a well laid out garden. The pool was covered and free from debris.

The only significant downside is that the development in which the villa is situated is still under construction , with many partially finished properties , lots of building materials around, unfinished roads and inevitably, some loud works noise.

The service from the local agent was very good and we had an enjoyable holiday.

From Leicester, United Kingdom Aug 2010

Yes we had a great week, the villa had everything we could have wished for. There were plenty of loungers, chairs and sitting under the pergola for my first coffee of the day was unforgettable. The information in the welcome book was a great help in choosing where to visit and which restaurants to use. ( Maria's was definately our favourite, Maria and Nadia ensured we had a meal to remember.) When we originally booked Por Do Sol Vivenda, we had no idea, what a fabulous choice it would turn out to be.

From Colin 2014 Just a quick note to say many thanks for the use of the Villa, it was a real treat, what a great spot and the pool is the best we have ever had in all our villa holidays. We had a fantastic time and happy to recommend to anyone. Also more than happy to leave a 5 star review. Thoroughly enjoyed the boules and table tennis ...the family are now virtually professional boules players and playing table tennis in the wind is fun too! Local bistro superb but favourite restaurant overall was OLagar! Definitely wanting to return another time. Thanks very much.

Genuine feedback August 2014 Thanks Paula - we had a lovely time and really enjoyed our first trip to the Algarve. The Villa was wonderful, clean and very well equipped - and we didnt break anything! Simone was lovely and really helpful - willing to spend time talking through how to use the equipment and although we only contacted her once during the week - seemed very approachable. All in all - a lovely holiday.

Genuine feedback July 2014 We were extremely pleased and satisfied with the accommodation offered. All facilities were exactly as read from your details and the whole ambience villa and gardens was extremely pleasant. We felt that the swimming pool was thoroughly cleaned and maintained, far better than most that we have experienced in the 15 years we have been holidaying together. Also the gardens were pleasantly kept and the gardener supplied us with a rake for the boules area. Overall excellent value for money. We would most definitely think to return and recommend to friends and family. Thank you Paula personally for all your attention, also wish to say how very pleased we were with your local manager Simone who ensured everything was perfect on arrival and during our stay.

April 2012 Not the best of weathers this time, our third visit, but pool wonderfully warm, villa much bigger than photos show .. we will be back again 2013! Thank you. Mandy and the boys.
