We were a party of 18, the youngest was 5 and the oldest in her 80's.
We had the most enjoyable holiday imaginable. The villa was perfect for our party, the heated pool, the outdoor seating, the beautiful interior with a very workable kitchen, the games room, the cinema room where we watched Tranmere Rovers win their playoff to be promoted to league 1, the terrace where we star gazed, the hot tub and much more.
Travel with wolf was the taxi service we used. They dealt with our transfer from and to the airport. They were available whenever we needed them and gave us information and recommendations for best places to visit. Thank you guys.
Henrique and Theresa were very attentive to all our requests, even to the arduous task of delivering food for all of us fron tbeir restaurant, which was delicious. Thank you both for making our stay a wonderful experience.
We had a lovely 10 day holiday at this villa which delivered everything we wanted. Excellent weather, nice looking house with well maintained garden, large pool, good communal areas (reasonable equipped kitchen, nice terraces, fun games equipment), good views, and bbq. The local town is pleasant with reasonable shopping for supplies (and larger supermarkets are a 15 minute drive away). The sea and good beaches are around a 20 minute drive away (but do take a wind break and parasol). Local markets and food are well worth indulging - delicious and offer great value. Henrique and Teresa (the hosts) are helpful and easy to communicate with - as are the local people generally. Around 25 minutes drive from Faro airport.
Großartige Villa mit vielen tollen Beschäftigungsm
Wir haben mit einer größeren Gruppe eine wundervolle Woche in der Villa verbracht. Wir waren erstaunt über den guten Zustand all der beworbenen Spiele (Konsolen, Billard, Tischtennis….). Auch insgesamt machte die Villa, obwohl wir am Ende der Saison dort waren, einen sehr guten Eindruck.
Die Ausstattung der Villa und insbesondere der Küche ist hervorragen. Es gibt genügend Teller und Besteck, Töpfe, usw. aber auch eine Saftpresse, Fritteuse, Eiswürfelmaschine…
Der Eigentümer Henrique nahm sich viel Zeit bei der Übergabe und erklärte uns alles sehr genau. Überhaupt war die Kommunikation mit ihm sehr unkompliziert. Zusatzkosten für Strom gab es keinen und auch sonst lief alles alles wie vereinbart.
Den solar geheizten Pool kann man bestimmt bis spät im Jahr nutzen. Ganz besonders stolz ist Henrique auf die Wasseraufbereitung des Pools mit Salzelektrolyse. Sollte der Pool trotz nächtlicher Abdeckung zu kalt sein, kann man immer noch in den gut geheizten Whirlpool steigen.
Hier sind noch ein paar Tipps zukünftige Gäste:
Wie bereits geschrieben ist die Küche sehr gut ausgestattet, allerdings gab es überhaupt keine Verbrauchsmittel: weder Spülmaschinentabs noch Mülltüten noch Salz oder sonst etwas.
Aufgrund der verkehrsgünstigen Lage der Villa sollten empfindliche Menschen eines der Zimmer im Keller wählen. Alternativ kann man auch die sehr gut gedichteten Fenster schließen.
Der Gastgeber war während unseres Aufenthalts sehr präsent (täglicher Besuch). Wen das stört, sollte hier vorher etwas ausmachen.
Es gibt die Möglichkeit ein 30l Fass für die Zapfanlage mit Durchlaufkühlung zu bekommen. Dieser Luxus ist den Aufpreis beim Bier auf jeden Fall wert. Das Bier ist immer kühl und man muss nicht unzählige kleine Bierflaschen transportieren.
Abschließend möchte ich mich nochmal bei Henrique für die Gastfreundschaft bedanken. Ich kann diese Villa allen Interessenten uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
Perfect family retreat
A spacious villa in a peaceful location with great facilities, a huge thumbs up to the beer on tap. The nearest small town is 2km away and has a very pretty square and several inexpensive but charming restaurants, would thoroughly recommend.
Good accommodation with a host of games, exercise machines and the biggest projection TV.
A high standard residence, extremely well equipped. All enjoyed the big, warm swimming pool and jacuzzi. The kitchen was well equipped with a long table to let us all eat together. We all had a most enjoyable holiday. It was a little far from the sea and the roads were temporarily horiffic. Otherwise excellent. Henrique and Teresa have restaurant Colibri in the town which is well worth a visit.
We were a large group made up of several families and could not have chosen a more perfect villa for our summer holiday. It had everything we needed. The space was great, a fully equipped kitchen which we used several times to prepare dinner and plenty of dining area space. Our group had young children, teenagers and adults and there was something for everyone. The pool, the cinema room, the games room, the hot tub, the BBQ - we used it all. Another welcome addition was the air conditioning in the bedrooms – definitely needed in August.
The owners Henrique and Teresa were great - on hand whenever we needed them. We were also able to book tables at their restaurant which is in the nearest village, Moncaropacho. Highly recommended! We also loved the ice cold beer on tap!
The location was beautiful - a 15 minute drive to Fuseta where the beach is, and 2km to the nearest village where there are restaurants (including Restaurant Colibri which had delicious food). We were also treated to several evenings of meteorite showers in the sky as there was no light pollution - I recommend sitting up on the roof terrace to watch the sunset and see the evening sky change into a sky full of stars – it was breathtaking.
Can't wait to come back to Villa Colibri
Being only 2km from the villa, Moncarapacho, the local village, has a 16th century church at its heart yet has supermarkets, restaurants, a selection of local café/bars, shops, a bank. The area’s beaches are absolutely superb. Many are based on sandbanks, or small islands, which can be accessed by boat, or in one case, a miniature train. These boast kilometres of golden sand with both decent facilities and plenty of space to escape the crowds. In addition the nearby towns of Tavira, Olhão and Estói are all worth a visit, while the proximity of Spain means that a day trip is little effort. The Rio Formosa Natural Park is a must for birdwatchers.
Being only 8km from the villa, Fuzeta is easily reached and comprises a tidal river bordered with colourful fishing boats and pavement cafés, leading up to the estuary which has a sand beach and beach house where one can catch the small ferry boat which regularly crosses over the small stretch to a large, clean sandy coast. The beaches in this area are all EEC blue flag.
Flights and car hire: Although we leave it to guests to arrange their own flights to Faro, we may be able to help with car hire by recommending some reliable firms. Car hire is really necessary as public transport is not easily accessible from the villa; it is best arranged before you leave. You can pick up your car at Faro Airport when you arrive, and leave it there when you return home.
