Guestbook comments from the manager

Definite 5* week. The villa is well appointed clean tidy and the grounds are well kept. The whole feeling of the Villa is comfortable. We splashed in the pool, sat in the sun and in the evening wandered down to the local town (village)which is full of the kind of bars and restaurant's that locals frequent, great fun. Loads of local places and towns to visit even a huge shopping mall within 10 mins drive. Recommend this to anyone.

Buganvilla May 2009

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to a villa in Guia and we very impressed with this villa and as it says it has been fully modernised including sky tv ( we don't even have sky at home so that was a great novelty for watching all the uk tv at night time).

The pool was heated for a few days ( we didn't request this ) and would recommend heating in May.

Garden and grounds are immaculate and we saw both the gardener and the pool attendant several times during our one week stay.

Guia is a small town with many typical Portuguese restaurants and a few bars,the Algarve shopping centre is only 3 miles away and sells everything you could posibly need.

Albufeira is approx 5 miles away and has many pubs/clubs/restaurants etc.

Guia is ideally situated (40 mins west of Faro airport) for exploring the Algarve and it's many waterparks and golf courses.

The villa has full aircon (not needed in May) and the patio door has a insect net which slides across to keep insects out and 10 month old daughters in!!!

Nice place away from busy areas

  • 4 of 5

A villa in a quite area which has everything you need. Close to a shopping mall and 10 mins in a car to the coast. Local beaches are worth a visit but they are busy. 40 mins back at the airport the most amazing beach .

A Lovely Fortnight in Portugal

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this property before. It is very well situated with a short stroll into Guia which has a huge choice of restaurants. The property was chosen as it met our requirements. Air conditioning throughout, lovely garden, parking for two cars, good pool and three bath/shower rooms.

We had a problem with the dishwasher which took a few days to sort out as it happened on a Saturday. But Florence and her staff were helpful as always.

The reason I haven't given the villa five stars is because it's beginning to look a bit tired. Nothing too important but the kitchen appliances are getting towards the end of their life. The outside furniture needs replacing. A few pool tiles are missing. None of these issues really lessened our enjoyment of the holiday but they do need addressing.

We also had no water for a day but that was a general problem for the area.

Overall, we had a great two weeks and will probably be back in Guia next year as we love the place. Most things you need are in the village (special mention here for Palladium and the Football Club) and the wonderful beaches are a short drive, so a hire car is essential.

Lastly, Manuela (the maid) is like an old friend. She is lovely and whisks around the villa without you knowing.

We'll be back.

Great property but you'll need the car.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved the pool, the house is very clean and comfortable. Gardeners and cleaners came and went during our stay very discreetly. The house comes with great facilities including excellent wifi which we all enjoyed. The village of Guia although is very close to a large shopping centre and the zoo marina park, does lack in options for restaurants and shops. Saying that there are plenty of nice places to eat within a 10 min drive. It's a short drive to albuferia and it's great to leave the hustle and bustle and come back to a quiet village environment. Overall a great property located in a very quiet area.

Stayed May 2017-Would definately re-visit to explore more.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was charming as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.It had all we needed and we really made the very most of using the swimming pool but glad we had arranged for it to be heated in May. So all in all a great time was had by all.

Our only criticism, and this may just be because we have softer beds at home, but we did find the matresses quite hard on the beds and had to improvise a bit but nothing that would put us off returning at a later date.

Manuela was warm friendly and really helpful during our stay and helped to polish up my French!! Many thanks. Sally & Derek
