The Algarve region

Algarve is known as the balcony of Europe. It is a safe and friendly location with a warm, gentle climate.

Once of the most popular holiday destinations with all year sunshine, beautiful coastlines and a friendly atmosphere.

The western Algarve provides an abundance of safe sandy beaches with wonderful restaurants. The closest beach is 10/15 min drive at Alvor.

Penina championship course with its 3 courses is 5 mins. Others within 10 min drive are Palmares, Alto and Pinta. The fabulous Monchique is in full view and a short distance away.


Something for everybody with the bustling harbour town of Portimao, the large expansive beach of Alvor and the old style Portuguese villages of yesteryear, all within striking distance.

Water parks, golf and marine activities are all available locally. Restaurants range from the touristy bars and cafes to the local style, set back from the hustle and bustle of the beach side area.

"A paradisiacal home away from home"

We were encouraged by the house manager to make this house our 'home away from home' and by the end of the holiday I think we all wanted to keep it and never leave! We were blown away when… More

"Amazing Villa - Shame about the Manager"

This was our second family holiday to the stunning Villa das Andorinhas. We enjoyed our first trip so much we decided to return the following year, the first trip was perfect but we were disappointed … More

We are glad to know that you had a second good holiday in our Quinta as indeed you wrote and told us last year. We always value return guests and were initially reluctant to raise this issue of the state in which the Quinta was left on your departure. We have been renting for 5 years and have entertained in excess of 100 parties. Unfortunately, perhaps due to being a larger group on this occasion, the villa and cottage were left in a far worse condition than any other renters over a 5 year period. We have used the same cleaning team and manager over the 5 year period and have every confidence in their assessment of the condition of the Quinta on departure. The cleaners were initially reluctant to clean put off by the sight of dirty nappies left on the kitchen table and the general condition of the house. They had to be persuaded by the manager with the offer of additional wages to clean and prepare for the next guests. We budget for 12 man hours including laundry which is normally more than sufficient. We do state in our terms and conditions that if additional cleaning is required we reserve the right to request a contribution from the deposit. This is the first and only time we have had to exercise this clause in 5 years. We charged only 50% of the extra cost to us for cleaning. I am glad that you feel that we were very reasonable throughout.
We were not notified about a Changeover of guests, so we were unaware of the need to provide fresh bed linen. As soon as we were made aware the bed linens were exchanged

"Great remote location - a real taste of Portugal"

What a fantastic villa, very large with great facilities. Close to two great restaurants and an excellent supermarket which allowed us to hide away from it all. We only went to the beach once in two w… More

"What more do you need from a villa rental ?"

We have returned from a recent stay at this villa and must share our feedback after staying at various villas in Portugal.

Location is fantastic as you are close to various routes for days out ie very close to Portimao ( fantastic beach & marina) and Lagos ( nice old town to explore )

But more important to us was that the villa is very peaceful day & night and apart from a few cars passing by on a road below, we felt hidden away with no noises. ( paradise )

We had 3/4 local authentic restaurants within walking distance from the villa when we did not fancy cooking for ourselves, or using the BBQ.

The Villa has everything we needed and more and I must say that this HAS to be the cleanest villa we have ever used, ( stayed 10+ )This is important to us with a young child and if I was honest we like a clean home in the UK .

The only thing to note is that the villa has split level and may be issue to some with children going downstairs but we used a few chairs to block this and did not cause a problem.

We will be using this villa again

"A fantastic villa in a great location"

From the moment we arrived at the electric gates and drove down the drive we knew we had found somewhere special. We didn't get to the villa until 11pm after a 2hr 40 min drive from Lisbon airport ( next year we hope to fly to Faro) the drive was long but doable for the ££££ it saved us on flight tickets (half term). Nigel the property manager was there to show us around and wow what a property. We all walked around the huge home with our mouths wide open. A previous reviewer had said that the photos don't do the property justice and i wasn't sure what they meant as we had chosen the villa because we were impressed by the photos but now i know exactly what they meant. From the beautiful warm pool, hot tub with views to die for, the pool table which the boys spent hours using, to the top of the range kitchen appliances and sun beds ( they really are sun 'beds') everything was the perfect; you can tell no expensive has been spared. We loved to order our bread rolls from the cafe at the bottom of hill and walk down on a night to the local restaurant. We can't wait to go back next year to have another relaxing holiday.

"Great Villa but would not go back ..."

First day at the Villa ended up with our 10 year old in A&E - not great! We were not alerted to the danger of the wind slamming doors - a major safety risk. James, our 10 year old ended up with 2 badly damaged fingers, stitches, and not able to go in the pool for a week! He needed further medical treatment back in the UK. This effectively ruined our holiday from day 1. Appreciate it was a freak accident - but given the owner knew the risks beforehaned we were disgusted by his attitude that it was not their problem. They have a resposibility to highlight the known risk which they were well aware of. Very disappointing attitude.

We were very upset to hear of the accident. On investigating the circumstances we learned that the parents had just arrived and were being briefed on the villa when the children decided to dash out to the pool one of the children very unfortunately got his finger trapped in the door. The manager arranged for a hospital visit and helped where he could during the holiday. At the end of the holiday the renter emailed threatening a lawsuit and demanding financial compensation to the tune of 500 gbp. As this was an accident and not our responsibility we felt the demands were unjustified. We declined his demand for compensation, hence his dissatisfaction with our response. We feel that we and the manager did all we could to assist in this unfortunate accident.
