We as a family of eleven including a six,four and two year old, had an amazing holiday. The villa was perfect , It had everything we needed for our stay. Villa is beautifully decorated to a very high specification. The upstairs of the villa is soundproof which we loved as our grandchildren could sleep while we enjoyed our evenings. Thank you Paulo and Christine for being perfect hosts.
A perfect family holiday for 8 adults and 3 young children.
Villa Magnolia offered our family the perfect getaway for us to relax, play around the pool and enjoy each others company over numerous evening BBQs.
Initially greeted by friendly and helpful Paulo and Christina, no request was too small (even if it was to help turn the oven on, which is actually extremely simple). Paulo is within reach if you need him, giving local recommendations, helping book taxis or just for a chat about the area. All our airport transfers were arranged for us and it made the trip very simple.
The villa itself is magnificent, the photos really don't do it justice. It is large and spacious even with 11 of us staying.
The pool is clean with sunny and shady spots around it for the adults to lounge around with a beautiful hilly backdrop.
Villa Magnolia is conveniently located near a small super market which is great for day to day bits, it is a short walk their but a slightly longer up hill walk (with shopping) on the way back. Taxis are readily available and very cheap, however, we would have benefited from having a car on this trip as we were out and about quite a fair bit (that's if one of us had remembered to bring a driving license).
Sao Rafael beach is the nearest and by far the most beautiful - with clear seas and golden sand, if we had to leave the Villa this was our choice of destination.
Albufeira old town is a short taxi drive away costing around €4 with an abundance of good bars and restaurants.
Overall, our stay was wonderful at Villa Magnolia and I cant recommend it enough.
We will be back soon for sure.

Out group of 8 adults stayed from 16th May for a week in this amazing villa.
The owners couldnt do enough for you; from a very easy booking process to a huge warm welcome including a guide to all things In the local area!
We arrived at the villa and were amazed by its size, cleanliness and super modern design.
There was ample space for 8 adults inside and out, with the pool, table football and pool table providing countless hours of fun.
Plenty of bathrooms for the entire group to use whilst getting ready. Tons of storage provided by the built in wardrobes in all rooms.
No complaints at all, we will definitely be back!
As there was only one previous review I was a little anxious when booking. On arrival it more than lived up to expectations and the owners photographs. It is a very spacious, luxurious villa with high ceilings, large living & dining areas and kitchen on the upper floor, bedrooms on the middle floor and a games room/social area leading out to the pool on the ground floor. There is no air conditioning which isn't a problem during the day due its design but can get a little uncomfortable at nights, portable ac units are available though. The owners Cristina & Paulo were excellent hosts, very attentive to all our needs and any minor issues raised. I would highly recommend this villa!
