"Villa idéale pour des vacances sereines"

La villa est totalement conforme à la description présentée.
Elle est parfaite pour qui souhaite profiter de vacances au calme, sans vis-à-vis (voisinage) et dans un environnement sécurisé.

La maison est très lumineuse dans son ensemble.
La cuisine équipée est dotée d'une buanderie très spacieuse. Elle dispose également de beaucoup de luminosité et ouvre sur une cour/jardin qui lui donne beaucoup de charme.
La terrasse, l'espace barbecue (à l'abri du vent) ainsi que le jardin sont très bien aménagés.

Les propriétaires sont très disponibles et à l'écoute des besoins si nécessaire.
La préparation du séjour est grandement facilité par les propriétaires qui répondent aux questions avec beaucoup de rapidité et fournissent une documentation relative au séjour qui est très détaillée.
Le manager est lui aussi très à l'écoute et l'accueil a été parfait.

Superbe clients qui nous serions ravis de voir revenir à la villa. Très heureux qu'ils avaient un bon temps qui est notre priorité. Merci pour votre réservation et l'examen subséquent. Cordialement. Paul & Mandy.

Firstly the photos are great, but the reality even better. The location is excellent; a short drive away from the beaches/marina, and yet remote enough to be wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The villa is stunning, both inside and outside. The villa was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and ensuite areas are lovely. The outside is simply amazing. Lovely gardens, large and clean pool and a wonderful barb-q area. I would return tomorrow! Totally relaxing and amazing! The owners are wonderfully helpful and are a credit to this beautiful villa.

"Beautiful Villa"

I stayed at the villa with a group of friends and had a fantastic time! The villa was clean, huge and really well maintained. The outdoor space is incredible with an amazing BBQ area, large pool and lush gardens.

The villa is a few miles from Vilamoura itself and I would recommend car hire to access the beach/town center/shops. Having said that, we relied on taxis a lot throughout our stay which were cheap and plentiful.

The owners and property manager were really helpful before, during and after the stay. They were quick to respond, very helpful and flexible around check in/out times which was really appreciated/

The whole experience was great and I couldn't recommend the place highly enough if you are after a luxurious, relaxing and private holiday.

Superb guests who we would be delighted to see back at the villa. Very pleased they had such a good time which is our priority. Thanks for your booking and subsequent review. Regards. Paul & Mandy.

"Disappointing service during stay"

The villa has no table or chairs around the pool area. We travelled with three chidren and elderly grandparents and there was no shaded area for us to sit together outside to eat or enjoy eachothers c… More

In a nutshell, the lead guest arrived looking to find a way to avoid paying the £595 balance of the rental costs/security deposit he/his party were due to pay on arrival. Because there weren't any justifiable reasons to withhold payment, he came up with some spurious ones, including not being happy to utilise the outdoor table and eight chairs provided because he wanted to “eat his breakfast outdoors but not sat in the sun”. Upon checking when next at the villa, it is clear that the table is in fact completely shaded until at least mid-morning in any event. He asked me to buy another table and chairs that he could put under the fully shaded pergola adjacent to where the existing table and chairs are. We offered parasols but he said that these would not provide sufficient shade from the sun and would certainly blow over despite them coming with heavy bases. As it happened, we managed to secure a spare table and chairs the next morning and we paid the villa manager to get these moved outside to a shaded spot. Despite having complied with his original request, albeit totally unreasonable, he then insisted on us buying two new parasols which the day before he had point-blank refused. I said that I would provide them but only if he would first put in writing that he would then pay the balance owed. He refused and started introducing the fact that two of the approximately fourteen outside lights were not working. Despite the petty nature of the request, I said that I would get this looked at, but only once he paid what was owed. He however still refused to make payment.

He/his party also caused damage to the back door and lock and also bizarrely used this as grounds for holding back the balance he owed, saying that until we undertook not to take the cost of repairs out of his damage deposit, he would not pay the balance.

All this is documented in emails, and I have cut and pasted the most relevant extract at the bottom of this response. We never got a reply to this and very reluctantly had to take legal action to recover what we were owed. This prompted immediate payment in full with no quibble or justification for the previous refusal to pay. It is interesting to note that the review was only posted once legal action had been started, thus reinforcing my assertion that that the review is less than objective.

By mentioning one or two positives and awarding three stars, the guest has attempted to give the impression that the review is objective. Besides all the glowing feedback all other guests have left which conveniently, they don't agree with, the reviewer opportunely also fails to mention the fact that we allowed them to check in several hours early free of charge and allowed them to stay five hours after official check-out free of charge (unfortunately, this had been agreed prior to their failure to make payment).

This is the relevant extract of the final email we sent but to which we never got a response.

"Dear xxx

What we actually agreed yesterday was set out in my email to you last night. With your response today, you have again moved the goalposts, now introducing the damage to the kitchen door lock and an extension lead in a further attempt to exercise leverage over us. It was exactly because I suspected you would again attempt to prevaricate that I asked you to put your agreement in writing before we incurred further costs procuring parasols that you were very resistant to yesterday but were offered as I wasn't willing to agree to your preferred option which was to buy a new table and chairs. Having however now provided table and chairs in the shade, as you requested, the parasols shouldn't be needed. However, as a further conciliatory gesture, I remain willing to provide the parasols (and have the lights attended to), but only if it is going to resolve the issue we find ourselves in……"
