We recently stayed at the Almaverde village in villa 138.
The holiday was absolutely perfect, exactly what we'd hoped for but exceeded expectations too.
Location: Easy access from the airport, so quick to get there and roads so easy to use.
Very central to lots of different resorts... Bureau, Lagos, Luz, salema and many, many more. We just didn't have enough days to go to everywhere we wanted to (all with 15 minutes!!)
Near to a supermarket (or 3!) so self-catering was easy, able to get meat for the bbq and another bottle of wine!
Villa: wow, even as we walked in for the first time I knew I'd never want to leave! Stunning decor, lots of space to relax, roof terrace to sunbathe/ relax in the evening, we love standing under the stars and the roof terrace allowed space to do this with no light pollution!
The gardens of the villa are incredibly well kept and frequented by beautiful butterflies, leading to some fantastic photos!
Kitchen is exceedingly well equipped making eating at home very easy, even with a coffee machine which eased getting out of the very comfy beds!
We spent our days by the pool, which was great for jumping in to in the heat! 4 nights out of 6 we ate out and had two bbqs at the villa.
We particularly enjoyed eating at No Patio in Lagos and Chiccas in Luz. Also enjoyed Atlantica bar in Salema. There really wasn't a shortage of places to eat/ drink and be merry! The reception staff were incredibly polite and helpful in helping us book restaurants to eat at. Which was made even easier by the great little basket in the kitchen with business cards of all the best places to eat and drink near the villa (and taxi numbers if you need them!!) the maps were useful when we got in to the towns too!
We didn't find the energy to cycle or play tennis, especially in the heat and the pool was so peaceful that we really didn't want to move. But I can see they'd be great options if your the energetic type!
There is only one word that springs to mind to describe this holiday, villa and location... Perfect! I will most definitely be back next summer!
