Why Isabel Martins chose Parragil
In a quite residential area, in the village of Parragil our villa provides a peaceful and happy break, we love the green surroundings of the area and the feeling of being close, but far enough away from the crowded towns. The easy access to the motorway A22 and N270 can take you to all places of the beautiful seaside and countryside of the Algarve.

Enjoyed our stay in Parragil!
We had booked Villa Isabel for a month but unfortunately had to leave in a hurry after a couple of weeks when the coronavirus hit and the borders began to close.
The layout of the property worked really well for us with a big comfortable lounge/diner and a big kitchen. The patio is a real suntrap and even in February/March we could use the lovely pool on the warmest days.
We had our dog with us so the enclosed nature of the prooerty was great.
The Smart TV with UK box was good, especially keeping us in touch with the coronavirus news in the situation, and we were able to log into our Netflix for the dark February evenings. We could plug our IPod into the very good stereo for music so we weren't short of entertainment!
Parragil is a very quiet location with great views down to the sea, which suited us, but only 5-10 minutes from Loule, a great town with a fabulous food market, and only 20 minutes from the coast. The whole Algarve is easily accessible from the motorway which is only a few minutes drive.
The caretaking is a bit lowkey and we had to buy cleaning products and do some cleaning when we arrived but then we were very happy.
Isabel, the owner, was extremely helpful in sorting out a couple of technical problems which arose while we were there and then in liaising with us over the coronavirus when the lockdowns started.
We very much regretted having to leave early due to the international situation and look forward to returning when the world returns to some form of normal.
The villa was in a quiet residential area with a few barking dogs in the neighboring properties but nothing that stopped us from enjoying the holiday. The views of the far away hills from the top tier garden were lovely. We spent most of our time around the pool in the top garden. Plenty of areas to sit outside including a front porch bench. Spacious interior. Slightly dated interior but had a rustic charm and very well equipped. 20 min drive to Vilamoura where we spent a number of evenings strolling around the marina and sampling the local restaurants. 10 min drive to a Lidl supermarket. Our family had a great time and we all came home refreshed and relaxed.
Very nice place in a great location for bikers
This is a nice 2 BR 2 Bath house with a well-stocked kitchen. We had a bit of an issue figuring out the stove. It would be nice if the owner would make up a little welcome sheet with instructions for things like the stove and the wifi password, trash pick-up, etc. We worked it out. Great biking in all directions and an easy drive to the coast if you want to play tourist.
Lovely villa with excellent pool
Stayed for 10 days in Villa Isabel. Lovely villa, the pool area is excellent. Loule is close by - a lovely town with good places to eat. Thank you Isabel & Paulo for letting us stay.

Very beautiful villa
We had a wonderful time at Villa Isabel. I have stayed in the Algarve many times but this was a real treat. Everything went well. If your thinking about booking it's worthwhile as the owner is genuine.
Many thanks Isabel.
