All amenities are near by, although the area is quite hilly. Beautiful beaches, especially Sao Rafael. The view from the upstairs room is unbelievable! We couldn't fault anything. Tracey the Manager and Victoria the Owner were very helpful throughout. Would definitely recommend! :)
First time in Portugal and a villa with our daughter and her family. Lovely villa, very spacious and well looked after. It sleeps 8, so with 4 adults, a 10 year old and a baby we all had plenty of room. Even with 8 adults, you would have all you need. 3 bedroom on the ground floor, one ensuite and a separate bathroom and toilet. The master on the 1st floor has a bathroom with separate shower and a fabulous balcony with seating area and a dining table - if you want to 'escape'! Down stairs the ground floor is very spacious with plenty of seating and a dining table for all. The kitchen has all you could need and a separate utility area. Outside the pool is a good size, plenty of sun beds and a great BBQ. All in a nice area behind electronic gates. A few minutes walk to a small beach with a lovely restaurant and other restaurants a 5 minute walk. They were all good. A taxi to Alberferia is between 5 and 10 euros depending on the size. Or you can walk to the marina (20 minutes) and the continue to the old town on foot which is another 20/30 minutes depending on the heat! We ate out and also used the BBQ in the villa which was nice and relaxing and meant the baby could go to bed whilst we enjoyed! Some children's' equipment is provided as are some beach toys. We also hired a bay walker and a few other bits from company which linked up with eh taxi and met us at the airport. The owners, the villa manager Tracy and our taxi driver Nuno were all great at responding and provided really useful information. A great find and we would certainly return if we visit this area again.
Peaceful and secure location. Very well maintained & managed. Owners are very helpful & most accommodating. Sobre o Mar is a paradise to me as someone who craves a good sea view; this does not disappoint. Villa is very spacious and bedrooms very well appointed with plenty of storage. Beach towels provided in addition to bathing towels which was a huge plus for me. It's the little things that make this villa and its owners quite something. Having visited the Algarve multiple times every year since 2003 I've not come across anywhere I could call a home from home ever before. My only wish was that I owned it myself. This had been my second stay in Sobre o Mar having visited it in Feb after falling for the pictures I saw online. Any picture you see does not do the place justice, there is something very special in and around it that no camera captures. Special memories made in a very special place, I will be back many more times God willing.
Wonderful villa with beautiful gardens and lovely views!
A big thank you to Tracey for sorting out taxis for us and giving us a lift to the supermarket!
There was 7 of us and we all had an amazing time. The villa is probably one of the best we have stayed in.
A big thank you to Victoria and Tony
for letting us stay at their beautiful villa. We are hoping to book again soon.
