“An excellent villa in a lovely setting” The taxi from Faro to the villa was booked for us by Jacqueline and cost 25 euros each way and it was a 20 min journey.Jackie was there to greet us and show us round (the welcome pack was huge),Villa Sul Vista is a beautiful place to spend your holiday. It has large well appointed rooms,first rate accessories,and is within easy walking distance of the Village of Paderne. The village has many cafés and four very good restaurants Os Arcos was our favourite (and the cheapest ) but they are all worth a try. By the way turn left out of the Villa and 50 yards up the road is the cafe that sells the best toasties we have ever had,for one Euro you get Portuguese bread filled with any or all fillings you care to mention and they are big very big.. Jackie was a lovely host and the Villa was cleaned to a high standard while we were there. Going back next year and can't wait.
“Wow, amazing villa ....” Casa Jenard exceeded all expectations. The villa is specified to the highest of standards inside an out. They have thought if everything for those travelling with small children which really helped with the packing!! Our first family holiday abroad was wonderful thanks to the great facilities and service from the team who own an manage casa jenard. The resort was great, golden beaches, great restaurants and cafe bars. We will most defiantly book again.
“We will be back....” The farmhouse is in a peacefull location within easy reach of the local beaches.The Farmhouse has everything you need for a relaxing stay.Our boys who are aged 9 and 7 loved the pool and chose to stay in the room with their very own bathroom!!! It was great that when they needed to chill out,the dvd player and ps2 was at hand,as that gave us a chance to chill and read a book by the pool..If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with good local restuarants and fantastic beaches this is the place to stay...
“The photos do not do it justice” We fell in love with this apartment as soon as we walked in. It was exactly where we wanted to be. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. The wifi was a bonus. Although we had some problems with the Holiday Lettings site, the owners, especially Emanuel, were extremely helpful. Will definitely be going back.
“A perfect holiday in Portugal.” We stayed at the villa in June for a duration of two weeks. The house was in good condition. Everything was taken care of. There was an high chair and a baby bed for our son.
The cleaning lady was very friendly, she cleans three times a week.
Our son (1.5 yrs) really loved the swimming pool. The pool had a fantastic temperature.
The weather was great. Centianes beach is close to the house and is very suitable for families.
There is a big super market nearby (5 min. drive), which is the Intermarche. Restaurant hill and Carvoeiro are also a few minutes drive.
A great place to stay for a fantastic holiday!
“Chilled out stay in Olhao” We actually rented 2 apartments in this complex but this particular apartment was the superior one because it was more like home from home with lots of extra little touches like the beach umbrella and the shopping trolley which is really needed. The apartment is ultra modern and very secure with high quality locks - rooftop pool really nice. Olhao is a working town with a loads of good quality local restaurants and bars full of local people. There are virtually no tourists here but luckily most of the waiters etc speak good English. Every type of cuisine is catered for but we concentrated on the seafood which was fantastic and very reasonable in price. it is also worth exploring the backstreets where the bars and restaurants are ridiculously cheap 60 cents for a glass of white wine.
Finally the Islands of Armona and Farol - amazing uncrowded beaches that stretch for miles and miles and great fun catching the local ferries.
“Superb April getaway to a gorgeous apartment in Portugal” What can I say, it's Easter in the middle of April and I'm sat on the patio in Portugal having breakfast 1st thing in the morning! The apartment is gorgeous, spacious and clean and Clube Albufeira is very well appointed with lovely tended gardens, spotlessly clean pools, areas for the kids to play and a few welcome adult hideaways. The restaurants on site that I've already been to presented us with some gorgeous food at reasonable prices and I'm looking forward to trying more. The old town is great with lots of different bars and restaurants to chose from including a fab authentic Portugeuse restaurant called The Atrium housed in the old theatre with little balconies overlooking the cobbled street below. The beach is lovely too and there's not a sign of seaweed in sight.... yippee :-) I didn't realise Portugal had such lovely all round weather and would certainly look to come again out of season for longer next time. Fantastic break with fantastic company, thank you - Nicola, April 2015
“Excellent villa!” Just spent 4 days here for my hen do. Communication in the lead up to the stay was excellent and Patrick and the team booked transfers making the whole stay easy and stress free.
The villa was in a beautiful location (only down side was building works across the road) that wasn't the fault of anyone at Columbia bookings and we still had a fantastic time relaxing by the pool.
The villa was clean and Miguel the villa manager was brilliant! He booked taxis for us and even let us stay a bit later than checkout as our flights weren't till later on.
The villa suited our needs perfectly. Well stocked kitchen and supermarket 5 minutes down the road which sold most things making it easy for us to cook at the villa.
We had a great time by the pool which was a lovely temperature even without being heated at this time of year. Everything went smoothly during our stay and all 12 of us had a great time.
Only a few negatives: there weren't many bins in the villa and the outside bin wasn't very big for 12 people's rubbish over 4 days.
One of the showers upstairs wasn't attached to the wall but we didn't really mind as the shower was a lovely temperature and had a good power so we held it as we showered.
Double bed upstairs was very creaky but the people staying in there still got an adequate nights sleep.
All in all a super villa perfect for a large group. We all had a fabulous time and I cannot rate the communication from Patrick, Jim and Miguel more highly. I would happily book with them again in the future!
Thank you for a fabulous stay!
“Forest Seclusion with Sea Views!” A really nicely converted cottage, open plan layout with a mezzanine floor for the bedroom. Very clean, spacious and well equipped - everything from a coffee machine to Wi-Fi. Location is within a national park, surroundings are peaceful and tranquil. On a clear day, you can just about see the sea. Lagos is a 15 minutes drive away. An added bonus is the Restaurante Florestal which is virtually next door. We went there several times, and the food and quality were consistently very good. All in all, this was a delightful stay, and the owners Karen and John are very friendly and hospitable. So want to come here again!
“Idyllic apartment in quiet location” Lovely apartment, really well equipped and comfortable with a lovely indoor and outdoor 'lounge' and all on ground floor so just a few feet to the quiet shared swimming pool. Pool is small but perfectly adequate for a quick swim and the small garden is quiet and clean. Beds are comfortable and air conditioning is in every room. Miguel, our contact, was nothing short of excellent in his support. The walk to the marina/town however is quite a trek (at least 40 mins in the heat) so be prepared to either hire a car or, as we did, just taxi in and out which will cost about 8-10 euros each way (still easier and cheaper than hiring a car) and the taxi company get to know where you are. Perfect for a quiet family or couples holiday in a well-equipped and comfortable apartment but with access to the busy marina if you want it. Lovely! Can't wait to go again.
“Lovely apartment which is close to beach and restaurants” We very much enjoyed this apartment and could not have asked for more. It is on a quiet 'shared pool' complex which was clean and safe. We are a family of 3 with a 12 yr old son who also enjoyed the pool, wifi and playstation!!
Lovely beach and restaurants close by.
“Best Villa in Lagos!!!” You will NOT get a better Villa in the whole of Lagos than this one.
The views overlooking Porto Da Mos beach are out of this world!
Only 3 mins walk and you are on the beach.
Swimming pool is to die for.
Aircon and mod cons everywhere.
Pity the BBQ is at the back of the house....but that's coming from a South African where braai'ing is the centre of all social activity:-)
Can't wait to go back there......just need to start saving.
“Lovely Appartment in Burgau” This was our 11th trip to Burgau and as usual it didn't disappoint.
We were met on arrival and the owners had kindly arranged for the fridge to be stocked with food and drink which was very welcome as we arrived late evening after the local supermarkets had closed.
The apartment is on the first floor and the furthest from the main road, so quiet and private. The balcony and private roof terrace got the sun all day and it's just a 5 min walk away from the beach.
A lovely spot in a perfect location.
“Lovely, clean apartment in great location, balcony seaview” We loved the apartment, it was very clean and equipped in all the necessary things, great kitchen! It also has a barbecue on the balcony. 10 mins walk to the beach and also 10 mins to the Marina and then Lagos centre. Not far from a supermarket either. There is an underground parking, wifi works well, all satellite channels (not that you need them in such a lovely place). Connie, our local admin was very helpful with lots of tips but there is also great contact with the flat owners, Yvonne and Lennart are very responsive to all the queries. We loved it so much that we are coming back this year and we are recommending Lagos and this flat to all our friends.
“Great accommodation in a nice open setting” First time we have rented a villa with a shared pool, normally opting for a private pool. 32 properties within a gated secure area sharing one large swimming pool. Some villas privately owned and some rental properties. Pool area was never too crowded.
Villa was very modern, open plan downstairs, three bedrooms and plenty private outside space which included upstairs balconies and downstairs terrace with sun awning arrangements on both.
Modern decoration with ample furniture, seating and kitchen utensils. In all everything was provided. Clean on arrival with a weekly cleaning service provided.
Covered parking to keep the sun off the car which was a nice touch.
Close to Vilamoura marina (drive in a few minutes, walk in under half an hour).
Great location for chilling out during the day by the pool whilst being close enough to Vilamoura for beach and restaurants.
Local area rep (Ray) met us on arrival at the villa and was easy to contact during our stay.
I would recommend this as a holiday rental.
“Apt 102 Clube Nautilus Armacao de Pera” Great location for beach, with shops and eating places 10-15 minutes walking.The complex ideal for those who do their own thing. Apartment clean and spacious, catered for all our needs. Definitely return
“Amazing,,, simply amazing!” We travelled as a group of 26 for a hen party! The place is huge, well equipped and spotless! Miguel the property manager was very helpful also. The villa has such a relaxed vibe, the swimming area was perfect and again very clean. I cannot recommend this villa enough, and no doubt will visit it again in the future!
