“Luxury” My wife and I (with our 1 and 4 year olds) stayed here for 6 nights in June. Before arrival the owner was exceptionally accommodating in meeting and arranging additional needs for the children (cots, stair gates, high chairs etc.). The welcome pack then tells you everything you need and more. The house itself (in a private, gated community) is extremely well equipped to a high specification, including access to all the "pool/beach paraphernalia" you could possibly need! The rooms are beautifully presented, and stylishly decorated, as other reviews have said - most having their own en suite. The kitchen/lounge area, opening onto the outdoor eating area is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the air conditioning during the siesta period! The direct access onto the pool area is also fantastic, which itself it well equipped and cared for by the estate staff. The location is a short hop into a number of local villages/towns including beaches and marinas (Vilamora marina itself is a lovely place to eat/drink/visit). Highly recommended.
“Gorgeous accommodation, thrilled.” Absolutely thrilled with this town house. Spotlessly clean, modern and stylish. The best location on the complex with a poolside view, 2 rooftop terraces with gas BBQ for ease. One terrace mainly sun and the other some shade which suited our party perfectly. The house is south facing so lots of winter sunshine should you go out of season. The agent Rachael is invaluable for local information and can book car hire, restaurants and deal with any issues or queries. Large swimming pool and sunbeds are available. Plenty of outdoor seating on the private patio area at the front of the house and on the rooftop terraces. The walk into town takes 10-15 mins down a series of steps. Of course coming back is a little harder but we enjoyed the walk. Taxis are cheap should you prefer.
Tavira is a very quaint river town. Lots of shops and restaurants catering for every purse and palate. Tavira island is a must with the local boat making regular return trips for €1.20. The beaches are long, clean and beautiful. We went to Seville which is 1.5hrs away by car, easily done as a day trip. If golf is your thing it's paradise.
I can't sing the praises of this accommodation enough. The photographs do NOT do it justice. Just beautiful. Can't wait to go again.
“Perfect! We have come back year after year and it just gets better!” We have been coming to the villa since May 2013, sometimes twice a year and have recommend it to countless friends and family who have all had the same fantastic opinion of it. The changes Joao and his wife have made to the villa this year have only added to the feeling of quality. Our first visit was our young daughters first holiday at 9 months old, it speaks volumes that we have not had a family holiday anywhere but here since! She has grown up here, taken here first steps, and learnt to swim. We cannot recommend it highly enough, and must also mention how easy Joao is to deal with and how clean and welcoming his handover people make it.
“Fabulous townhouse, spacious and comfortable.” We stayed in Michelle’s townhouse for 8 nights in July. We are a family of 5 adults and it was an excellent choice for us. The house is spacious, immaculate, comfortable and very well appointed.
There are sunny and shady terraces for relaxation throughout the day.
We have stayed in the complex previously over several years and are familiar with the location, the town and of course the steps! Michelle’s house is without doubt superior to any other rental property in the complex as it is so well equipped. The kitchen has every utensil you could wish for. The beds are very comfortable ensuring a great night’s sleep.
This house would also suit a family with young children as it is very convenient to the kiddie pool.
Michelle is a most solicitous hostess but we wanted for nothing and enjoyed a very relaxed family holiday.
We would hope to return!
“The best place I have ever had the privelege to stay in.” Thank you so much Valter for making your lovely loft available for us and others to enjoy. The accommodation is five star, comfortable, finished and furnished beautifully. Not only that but it is wonderfully situated in the centre of town, with steps to walk for an excellent coffee and a couple of hundred yards to some fantastic restaurants (thanks for the recommendations, spot on). Even parking was favourable...we always managed to park in front of the flat and just fed the meter regularly which was inexpensive especially considering the convenience. My partner and I consider ourselves lucky to have found this gem and we are convinced it made our September getaway all the sweeter.
“Great property for family holiday” A fantastic stay at this property which is on a lovely modern complex. Peaceful location out of the main resort so a car is essential although we did walk the 2 miles to Albufeira a couple of times. The property overlooks the pool area which is great as our children could run to and fro all day long and even though we visited in school holidays, the pool wasn't busy (maybe 10-15 people at a time) and we often had it to ourselves. Lovely grounds to relax in away from the pool if you wish. The property itself was spacious for the four of us and well equipped. The addition of some furniture for the balcony off the bedrooms would be nice. Good communication from managing agent and smooth service throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and hope to visit again.
“Perfect For us!” Another wonderful stay in the Old a Village. Margarets House is a perfect house for us to stay. Close to the golf, 15 minute walk to the Marina, everything you need on site. Quiet and peaceful at this time of year, and a wonderful garden to enjoy the sunshine. The whole area is very well maintained and a delight to walk around and admire the gardens. Reception looked after us very well, nothing was to much trouble. Weather in the Algarve wasn't as good as usual at this time of year but to have use of the log fire in the evenings was an added bonus. We would certainly recommend to anyone.
“Perfect family getaway!” Spent a fantastic week with my wife and 2 small children at this property. Perfect in every way from the immaculate accommodation and pools, to the fantastic beaches and restaurants. The proximity of the apartment to the pool (5 steps from our door) meant the kids could have an early morning and late afternoon splash after returning from the beach. The owners provided lots of information which made exploring the area easy. There are many great restaurants to choose from - our favorites were Lourezo's and the restaurant over looking Dona Anna beach! The fish was grilled to perfection. We also thoroughly enjoyed relaxing at the apartment and using the balconies for sundowners and bbq's overlooking the golf course. Can't wait to go back!
“Wonderful holiday at O Pomar” My husband and I stayed with my daughter and her boyfriend (20 and 21) we all had a wonderful time. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, we were shown around it and everything explained to us. The house was lovely and cool throughout our stay due to the electric shutters on the windows, we only used the air conditioning a couple of times even though the temperature outside was about 30deg.The walk to Cabanas takes around 15 minutes, were there are plenty of good restaurants cheaper than the UK.The swimming pool at O Pomar was spotless and as there were no children when we stayed we practically had the pool to ourselves.I would certainly recommend this property,also the owner was very helpful when I booked and even telephoned me to answer my queries.
