Great villa, great location
Our family of 4 stayed at the villa in August and really enjoyed our week. The villa was a good size and well equipped, although it was a shame the umbrellas were broken as the pool is in direct sunlight and the temperature was high all week. The only other annoying aspect was a local church which rang the bells every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day ! Other than that the villa was perfectly located almost in the middle of Vilamoura and Lagos - both approx 30 minutes by car, and the Aqualand water park and Zoo Marine Park both a few minutes drive away.
Well equipped, spacious villa
We recently stayed at the villa and have a lovely week. There was plenty of space for us all, and there was nothing more we could have needed for our stay.
The pools were lovely, quite cold, but needed with the VERY hot weather we had during our stay. The welcome package was a really nice touch from the owners.
I would say that Armacao de Pera is not walkable from the villa (we were advised it was 30mins on foot when we arrived) but there are many taxi firms. Magic taxi was a good firm, and another was Tony Way To Travel who had car seats, which we required. A short walk away from the villa is Aldi and a small selection of bars and restaurants. We also found a cafe nearby with coffee for 65cents so well worth a stop.
We had a lovely week here and have already told friends about it in the hope that they would also enjoy their holiday here one year. Many thanks again for an enjoyable stay!
Great villa with great facilities
Arrived late with tired family and after finding way round this well equipped villa found a welcome chilled bottled of wine waiting for us as well as other goodies. Agent let us in and showed us around even though it was late.
Villa exceeded expectations. Spacious with dishwasher, washing machine etc.
Very close to Aldi and restaurants in town.5 minutes drive to beach and zoo marine. A must visit theme park.
Minor criticism is pool area is in direct sunshine and 3/4 parasols for shade would have been useful as it was very hot.
Would highly recommend a stay here.
Such a great time!
The villa was lovely and spacious. The kitchen was a good size including all appliances (washing machine and dishwasher too). We used it for breakfasts and then ate out. The living was large and a great place for the family to gather in the evening. We played games and watched the news as there weren't many channels working. We were informed that these were being upgraded soon. The four bedrooms were perfect for our party of 6. Air conditioning in all rooms is available if requested with a charge. We definitely needed this because the temperature was 30c degrees! The inbuilt wardrobes were great in the bedrooms especially the walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom! A full length mirror would have been better in all bedrooms instead of just one. The were 2 shower rooms (1 up and 1 down) and a family bathroom in the master bedroom which had a jacuzzi bath which we didn't use because of the weather. Plenty of towels were provided and bedding which was changed mid week by the cleaners. The pool was used by the teenagers and was the perfect size although we could have done with some sunshades around the pool as the sun stays over the pool all day. The small pool is ideal for little children. We made great use of the balcony because it was sheltered and had rattan style seating, perfect to watch over the children in the pool. The balcony off the master bedroom had a great view over the local area but wasn't sheltered so it got quite hot up there. Wifi was available (via a dongle) which could be topped up at the local shopping centre. An Aldi store was at the top of the road (a 5 minute walk).The local beach was an hours walk which we discovered on the first day! We used Miguel's taxi firm after that to get around, they were reasonably priced and so friendly. The local beach is called Armacao de Pera and has so many shops, restaurants and entertainers. There is food for every palate and the prices were good too. We discovered that the area comes alive at 8pm onwards even young children are out with their families! This explained why most restaurants began serving food from 7pm. We were spoilt by all the ice cream shops and cocktail bars. Highly recommend Pedro's bar, brilliant staff and good valued drinks, they even made us cocktails which we requested. Other favourites were Piccolini pizzaria, Bollywood restaurant, A Lota, N'ice cream dessert bar. If travelling further i would recommend Albufeira old town, Algarve shopping centre and Vilamoura marina.
A really clean, modern villa with all facilities that we needed to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our kids loved the pool, which was easily accessible from the back doors. Brilliant water park located nearby. Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay
Excellent Holiday for all the family
This is an excellent, well maintained, spacious villa ideal for a family holiday. The local town of Alcantarilha is a few minutes walk and offers bars and about 3 / 4 restaurants offering great value local fare. A supermarket (about 5 mins walk) means the self catering option is well serviced.
The local town of Armacea de Pera is about 5km away (¢7 by taxi) and is a delightful fishing town that offers a long beach and many restaurants, shops and cafes. We found the town very pleasant to walk round. Definitely check out zoo-marine and slide and splash for days out. Car not required - we managed using the local taxi firms who were very reasonable.
Along with two pools and great weather we and our three daughters had a relaxing and enjoyable break,
Communication with Ashleigh and Stephen was prompt and excellent. Lynn met us at our villa and provided more local information and a few discount vouchers - all in all a fantastic time had by all.
I am pleased you enjoyed your recent holiday. The villa is in a great location, with all the major attractions and beaches within easy reach, being just a short drive away.
The villa is great for families as it's large and spacious, with 2 pools it's brilliant for kids.
I hope we see you again sometime in the future.
