“Lovely big house for family gatherings!”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The house is very spacious and great for our three family units - granny and 2 children with grandchildren!! We found everything we needed apart from the wifi which worked very temperamentally and then only one ipad at a time!!

The pool is not heated as it states on the description which would be fine in the hot summer but not so great in October and this was something I had specifically looked for when booking - so I was quite disappointed to get there and see no solar heating panels or any other pool heating evident? The water was pretty cold and we had shivering kids within minutes on some of the cooler days!!

We had a lovely week and used the BBQ many times and the outdoor area is great with a Ping pong and table football to keep the kids entertained .

Management Response
25 Oct 2014
I am really sorry that the Wi-Fi system was very temperamental as I have not had any complaints in the past. I am having it checked and should it be faulty I will have it replaced immediately.

Regarding the swimming pool being heated, with due respect, I do not recall ever publicising the villa with heated pool. However, just recently, about a month ago, I decided to acquire the equipment ( heat pump) to heat the swimming pool, starting in the 2015 season. To this end, I have since September advertised the villa with this feature.
I sincerely feel that these guests should have brought this subject to me during their stay as I would have been only too pleased to clarify this matter.

“Fabulous accommodation with excellent back up from owners”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Villa & grounds were very well described. There were plenty of sun beds & we could all fit round the pool. Outdoor dining area very good, BBQ was used daily.
Silvana the owner offered to get in shopping for our arrival, food supplied was excellent, she advised us where to buy fresh fish, the fish was divine!
Group of 14 ladies & we all enjoyed our stay.

“Wonderful well appointed villa with magnificent gardens. Great for large families or groups.”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We spent a wonderful week with our large extended family. Plenty of room for everyone. We all loved the pool and other facilities. All rooms are very spacious with air conditioning, and the main bedroom upstairs even has its own lounge and wonderful verandah with some great views. Shops, restaurants and beaches all within easy walking distance. As part of the cost we were all collected from the airport and taken there for our return home. We used the taxi company that is used by the villa for some other excursions too. Very helpful. On our arrival we had a wonderful "welcome pack" of food, and as our flight arrived late evening this was very useful. It is difficult to describe how large this villa is but very big and then some....!!!! The old town in Albufeira is well worth visiting (we did try to walk it but we had 2 small children with us, and it was very hot, so we ended up calling a taxi for the last part!). I can highly recommend this villa as a brilliant place to stay. It took me weeks to find the "perfect one", as we were trying to please everyone - sons, daughter and grandchildren and extended family, and I can honestly say we made the correct choice. Good location, lovely weather - everything you need.
