"Absolutely fantastic"

Just back from our stay at Villa Mimosa, we only booked for a week but I could have stayed forever, this villa has everything and more , beautiful gardens with fresh fruit trees, fab pool and outside … More

23 Jun 2013



The photographs in the advert did not do justice to the actual villa. It was every thing we wanted, quite , secluded but only 10 / 15 mins by from the super market and Alvor. A five min walk to the local bar where you could order fresh bread for the next day and pick up after7-30am. There are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance and plenty within easy driving. The villa has everything you need for a first class holiday it was ideal for our requirements You have to watch around the pool as it can be slippy. You do need a transport to explore the local area access to the motorway and the 125 is on the doorstep the directions given from the airport to the villa where frist class we used the 125 and went straight to the villa.

"What a Find"

We only booked Villa Mimosa for one week but wish we had booked longer. The Villa is absolutely gorgeous and very well equipped with all you need. Very spacious and clean with lovely pool. 2 very good restaurants within walking distance but a car is essential unless you want to just relax by the pool and bbq, which is just what we did for first 2 days.
Alvor is 10 mins drive and the west coast for surf only 45 mins drive. Monchique mountains short drive away and lovely views.
Very peaceful location with only few villas on small development. You really should give this one a go if you are undecided, the photos don't really show the space and the gardens are gorgeous.
We would certainly book again if we were to return to the Algarve
