A Real Gorgeous Getaway to Algarve

  • 5 of 5

What we can say is that this villa can be truly named gorgeous. Placed in a very classy and elegant neighborhood, between numerous similar villas, is offers everything you can think for a perfect vacation: outside a very clean and daily verified pool with all necessary accessories (chairs, umbrellas, sunbeds, pool towels, pool toys, etc), a beautiful garden with olive trees and Mediterranean flowers and enough parking place for 2-3 cars. Inside the villa has a very elegant design, qualitative and very useful furniture, large bedrooms, very comfortable mattresses and totally utile bathrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped, including laundry washing machine and dish mashing machine. Nothing missed, nothing to add.

The villa is not easy to find first time, all the direction provided seemed useless, so we recommend to call directly at the indicated number for supplemental information. The beach is 10 min by car, accessible also by foot, but not pleasant to return at noon, so we don't recommend without a car at your disposal. Lagos is also at a very short distance by car.

The only regret is that we spent there only 4 days, wonderful indeed, but hopefully we will return next year.

Nice house in southern Portugal

  • 4 of 5

We only had a few short nights here, but it was a decent place to stay. We used the outdoor barbecue and enjoyed the swimming pool as well. One downside for us was that it was unusually hot and the home does not have air-conditioning. Our other glitch was that the HomeAway listing states that check out is at 11:00 am, but the cleaning ladies arrived at 10:00 am and were stressed out because we weren't gone yet. It is also the only apartment I have ever rented where there is no extra toilet paper or garbage bags... Other than that, the owners were quick to respond to our inquiries and the home is comfortably furnished.

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Even better than the pictures! I could have spent our whole 2 week trip here and was sad we were only staying 3 nights. Beautiful property and so relaxing and peaceful. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The black out shutters were so helpful while we adjusted to the jet lag. Communication was pleasant and fast response time. We would definitely come back here. Perfect place to stay if you have a vehicle, which really is the easiest way to get around Portugal. Thanks so much for being our favorite accommodation on our vacation!

Worked well for us

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable for our group of 6 adults. A little noisy (doors and floors, etc) but met our needs.

Exquisite villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this spectacular home for a week and fell in love with the house, pool, yard, and surrounding restaurants. Beds are comfortable, house is decorated beautifully, it's very private and quiet. The only sound is the beautiful birdsong. Restaurants are amazing; fantastic fresh sea food at great prices, many overlooking the ocean. Gorgeous beaches nearby. We especially loved Rock Beach(Praia de Rocha) this one is at the top of our "Bucket List" to return again and again! A Must!!! Six Stars! Exceptional!
