Relaxing and peaceful stay - perfect for the family
Our stay at the villa Borboletta was wonderful. The villa is secluded and not overlooked at all something that is really important to us as a family. A totally different expereince from your typical all inclusive resort holiday, myself and my partner were able to lie on the pool terrace and lap up the sunshine while our children splashed around in the pool and played in the spacious grounds. The villa grounds are well landscaped and the pool a perfect size (albeit a little cold when you first jump in). The villa is very well stocked with all of the essentials you need for self catering and home entertainment system is ideal for those days when the weather is not so great.
Just a short and very straightforward drive to all of the supermarketsand restaurants in albufeira - ideally placed.
The communication with Carlos was excellent from the start and he quickly resolved a couple of minor issues with minimum fuss.
If you are looking for a relaxing break to wind down then this place is for you.
We will definitely be looking to return in the future.
The Nasser family
The property is very tired and quite basic. It could be alot better with some investment.
We had a number of problems with the property from uncomfortable beds, noisy neighbours and dodgy air-conditioning units. In the main these were resolved quickly by Carlos. However our overall impression is that the villa is very tired and pretty basic. The pool area is good but inside is in need of some TLC. Carlos is also fairly robust in his style and the villa do's and DO NOT,s booklet is something to behold. We had a good time despite all this but we wouldn't go back.
We felt like millionaires for a week !!
The villa was amazing and was well equipped and clean. The pool was private and the outside terrace you could relax in your surroundings, but if you fancied a change, restaurants ,bars, supermarkets and shops were just 15-20 min walk away so the location was the best of both. Our family holiday, first time staying in a villa, I would highly recommend it to families, I'm looking forward to booking for next year. Our children were aged 7 and 10, they loved the pool and we felt safe and secure. We could also recommend Zoomarine and slide and splash. The manager Carlos was fabulous and his customer service was outstanding. Also we chose to use the designated chauffeur service for our days out, and I would highly recommend this service as their service was fantastic and flexible which helps when you have tired children. Overall a fabulous villa and holiday we wont forget.
Relax and enjoy with confidence
Excellent as usual we have now stayed in 3 of Carlos's properties and all have been as described and more we have enjoyed every stay and Carlos is always available to help with any problems so you can relax and book with confidence we will e back !

My Wife and I with our 2 Adult Children had a super stay here ,the Villa is equipped with all you could wish for and more ,the Bedrooms are a good size with very comfortable Beds ,the Kitchen has all the required Cutlery etc.unlike many villas we have stayed in before, the Lounge has TV ,Music and is huge.
The Pool with its many blow-up toys is terrific ,the size is just about perfect.
The whole Villa was really clean with good Towels which were changed weekly.
No downsides to this place if you are looking for a Villa in Portugal go for this one, you wont be disappointed..
Superb villa holiday
This was our second stay in villa Borboleta and we were a bit worried that we were making a mistake going back to the same place for a second year running but it was even better second time round and we enjoyed our holiday even more. The villa is fabulous - beautifully decorated throughout and extremely good facilities. We especially loved the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is even a spare one downstairs which is really useful for during the day. Both the lounge and the kitchen give access to the pool area which is where we spent most of the day just lounging around. There are plenty of comfortable sunbeds and a large table and chairs for eating al fresco and the pool is surrounded by the lawn and completely enclosed by some beautiful flowering plants and hedges - we loved the privacy it offered. If you fancy venturing out then you can easily walk to the strip at Prara d'Oura where there are loads of bars and restaurants but quite busy so nice to come back to the calm of the villa too. Quinta da balaia has its own reception and there is also a communal pool area with restaurant and a small but well equipped supermarket within a 5 minute walk.
Carlos dealt with our booking on both occasions and he has been so helpful, even arranging a car for us and transfers to and from the airport. I honestly cannot recommend this villa enough nor the service we received from Carlos who has always been on hand anytime we've needed him.
Would we go back again for a third time ? Yes, absolutely !!!!
