The Algarve region

Many first class golf facilities are within easy reach, the closest being the Penina Meridian resort and course which is less than 5 minutes drive from the villa.

In the vicinity there are many traditional fishing villages within a short drive, each with a variety of wonderful restaurants, bars and extensive sandy beaches.

Exclusive shopping from fashionable boutiques to the traditional gypsy markets. A new shopping centre, Aquaportimao has recently opened with 134 outlets.

The cultural cities of Lisbon and Seville are within easy reach, experience the history, ambiance and architecture which stem back many centuries.


Within reasonable driving distance of all of the famous Water Parks, including the chance to swim with the dolphins at Zoomarine. Alternatively, take the superb dolphin safari boat from Alvor.

The beautiful beaches of Alvor are only 10 to 15 minutes drive away, and those at Meia Praia and Praia de Rocha about 20 minutes. The surf beaches of the wild west coast are about 45 minutes away.

"Perfect relaxing pre-wedding stay with the girls"

Had a fantastic stay in this beautiful villa as a pre-wedding get away to relax and to get a bit of a tan before the big day!

This villa was the perfect location for a group of girls to have some relaxation in the private pool, and to be able to eat some long lunches and dinners with the sheltered BBQ.

The villa was very spacious and was great to have so many bathrooms when we were all getting ready to go out in near by Alvor.

Would really recommend for a group get away!

"Relaxing, wonderful place, enjoyed by all."

I would just like to say that we had an absolutely wonderful time
at the villa in March, pity about the weather though! But some things cannot be planned!
My parents were very taken aback by the whole experience and they even had a few tears when they saw the villa :-) They have not stopped talking
about it since!
The surrounding area is beautiful and it is far enough away from
the madening crowds! but close enough so as not too be too
isolated. It is very handy for the Autodrome (just up the road) which pleased my husband as he had three track days booked there.
The villa itself has everything and we all particularly loved
the outdoor facilities. Please give Melissa a big thankyou for
her help and little touches that helped in making it a
pleasurable stay, along with Clive for his handyman skills!
Many Thanks again for rentiing out such a beautiful place, we
hope to return again someday!
Karen, Lee Sam, Katie, Chris & Bev.

"Excellent Villa"

We would like to thank Melissa and Clive for a superb 10 days in Villa Citrus they were both available for any questions by phone or in person at any time. The welcome was excellent and the welcome pack was a lovely surprise. The villa its self was beautifully, clean, tidy and all up to a very high standard. The swimming pool and surrounding area was well kept with Melissa and Clive coming in midweek to clean the pool area and villa. We all had an extremely relaxing time and would not hesitate in recommending Villa Citrus.
Many thanks and we hope that we be able to book again in 2013.
Michelle & David Selway and friends.

"Fabulous Yet Again"

Although this was not our chosen Villa, we had to be moved due to building work, it was yet again a pleasure to stay. The facilities are brilliant and everything is catered for. The welcome pack of food / drink is much appreciated.

The accommodation is excellent as is the service provided by Melissa and her husband.

I would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anyone travelling to The Algarve, although you need a car as it is a short drive away from any amenities.

"Fantastic villa"

We have stayed in villas all over the world and we think that this is the first villa where we could not fault anything: pool, accommodation, location, service, etc. The 'welcome pack' was superb for our first day need. We would have no problem recommending people to stay at this or the sister villa just down the road. In addition, having Melissa located on your doorstep was a great help with local amenities, recommendations, etc. The installation of wireless internet is a most welcome addition
