“Sobre O Mar THE villa to be”

person found this review helpful

Sobre O Mar is THE villa to be and to have a wonderful holiday. Together with our children and grandchildren we enjoyed the spacious villa with large bedrooms and bathrooms. With the fully equipped kitchen and the outside BBQ cooking is fun. The villa is complete, clean, very well furnished and well kept. Even some parasols and chairs for the beach are present. Around the villa is a nice swimming pool and enough place to play (for the grandchildren). The view on the Atlantic Ocean is fantastic. At 400 m. distance there are two beaches and rocks for those who like hiking. At 5 minutes car drive the beach Coelho is beautiful and quiet and again surrounded by steep and colourful cliffs. Last but not least must be mentioned that the owners and villa manager are very helpful. The latter, the villa and its surroundings made this holiday for us unforgettable. Dit smaakt naar meer Sobre O Mar!!

“Wonderful villa , perfect location”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from relaxing week staying at Sobre o Mar .The villa was spacious , well equipped and met the varied needs of a family of six adults perfectly.
Fantastic views especially from the upstairs terrace.Location was perfect with short walk only to sandy beaches and local restaurants as well as small supermarket for bread and milk.
Having experienced many other villa holidays as a family we would all recommend this villa as one of the best.

Thank you very much for the super review. You certainly seem to have fully embraced all there is to do in the area, horse riding, para-sailing, walking, swimming etc.. Thank you also for the very nice comments on Tracey who works very hard at helping our guests to enjoy their time in Sobre O Mar.

We look forward to your return visit.

“Great villa, good location.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in Sobre O Mare with two other couples and had a really good holiday. The villa is fully equipped and the owners and property manager did a great job taking care of us! The airport shuttle service they arranged was great and we even used them during our stay instead of calling cabs. The two beaches within walking distance are fantastic, but the hilight of our trip was surly the wonderful seafood restaurant on the cove closest to the villa. We ended up eating there 5 times and by the end of our trip they were treating our group as family! The villa is perfect for a group of 6-8 adults. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we come back with a larger group.

“Absolutely FABULOUS!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is without a doubt the best villa we have ever stayed in! The view is to die for and it has everything to make the perfect holiday for any age group. The area is magnificent too and it is surrounded by the most spectacular beaches. Restaurants, shops etc all nearby but Old Town is also close so you would want for nothing. This really is a special place for those who want the very best but in a peaceful area and with luxury for an excellent price. We have found no faults at all. Nothing but praise for the owners and their beautiful villa. Lucky us to be able to share in their good fortune! If you do not book this villa, you will miss out! We will be going back over and over again....
