This villa has 12 verified reviews.
11 out of 12 people recommend staying here
13 of us stayed. Children and grandchildren. Lots of space. Comfy beds. Great location. Would definitely recommend. They arranged transfers too which was great and we used same taxis during our stay as they were reliable.
Comfortable & quiet 7 bed, 5 bath property that easily accommodated our family of 11. Clean & well-equipped.
Easy walk to local shops & restaurants, with a short cab or Uber into town for more life (or to Al Quimia for a 5* restaurant experience). Try the municipal mercado for an indoor farmers' market with the best & freshest local produce.
Walk to beach is doable (our fit 82yr old gran managed it) but the walk back is uphill, so may not be manageable for some. Short drive to a range of beaches with parking though, of which Falesia was the largest & least crowded.
Lovely sea view from 2 bedrooms & terrace. Good pool.
Cleaners came once a week & were friendly & efficient.
Would happily return.
We booked the villa for my sisters hen party. There were 15 of us and the villa was perfect! Great size very spacious and in an ideal position. It was close to the beach, supermarket and short taxi ride to the main strip. Miguel was very helpful and provides taxis for us when we needed them. As there were 15 girls we could have done with a few more mirrors as there weren't any in the bedrooms! Also the pillow could have been better but apart from that it was amazing I couldn't have asked for a better villa to stay in!
Thanks again the weekend was unforgettable!
I was arranging my hen do for 18 of us when I came across this villa. It looked ideal with its close amenities, 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and its own pool so we booked it for mid May 2015. I can honestly say we were not disappointed in the slightest. The villa had everything we needed, cutlery, bed sheets, bath towels. We did a combination of eating out in restaurants or having meals in the villa. One night we had a BBQ (as there is one at the villa) and it was amazing – sat out on the veranda watching the sun set, eating burgers and fresh fish and drinking wine so I would recommend taking advantage of this opportunity!
Even at the full capacity of 18 people, the villa was spacious enough so we never felt like we were on top of one another.
The owner, Patrick, was so helpful, from my original queries before id even booked, right up until a few days before the holiday. He answered all my emails so promptly and couldn’t have been more helpful. He and Jim also arranged our airport transfers from Faro which I would recommend doing as a taxi is more expensive.
Just a few things about the villa/area:-
Location – located in a quiet area, it could not have been more perfect. There were other villas around but you could not hear anything from the neighbours. We had no problems at all.
Supermarket – is literally a 5 min walk so stocking up on food and drink was not a problem. We were there Friday to Monday and it was open every day we were there. They also ordered taxis for us on occasions when we couldn’t get a taxi by phone.
Beach – it took us about 15 mins to walk to the beach but after some exploring we found shortcuts which halved the time so its worth having a roam and finding ways to get the beach quicker as its beautiful. The sand is golden, and very clean and there was a lifeguard on duty too. There are plenty of places to get something to eat or drink. The ice creams are amazing.
Old Town and New Town – they are a taxi ride away but very reasonable (average about 5-6 euros each way). If you like good nightlife then these are the places for you. Id say New Town is the livelier of the two and we found a beautiful restaurant in Old Town. We saw no trouble, lots of stag and hen parties who just wanted a good time. For mid May, it was busy.
Waterpark – Slide and Splash – is about 30 mins in a taxi (cost us 35 euros each way) but well worth it if you like flumes and riding in rubber rings! I was advised to avoid the place on weekends so we went on a Monday and it was practically empty – we didn’t queue for anything. I can imagine it gets heaving in the peak season though. Its worth a visit if you like this sort of thing.
We went in mid May 2015 and the weather was amazing – I think we struck lucky because there was a heatwave and we think the temp hit about 30 degrees.
Ok, so now for the negatives: we were only there for 4 days and not longer!!!
So, overall, all 18 of us had an amazing time and I have fallen in love with Portugal – the people are friendly, the area is clean, the scenery is beautiful, everything is reasonably priced. Basically a big thumbs up and I would recommend to anyone.
Miguel (the villa manager) was around if we needed him and was very friendly and speaks excellent English.
I would not hesitate to recommend this villa.
Thank you to Patrick and his team for making our stay so enjoyable. We want to go back already!
Leanne and her 17 hens!
We decided on this villa as it stated it was wheelchair friendly this is not the case there are steps all round the villa and no ramps. There is no access to the pool or the area downstairs for wheelchair users. When it rainined the downstairs area flooded and the electricity kept going off we couldnt use the kettle and hob or cooker together. On the last day the rain caused the downstairs area to flood and it knocked out lights and sockets and we couldnt get them back on an electrician was promised and never turned up.
