Colin was a fantastic host. We arrived late in the evening and he waited and gave us directions. The house is so well equipped and spotless. The neighbours are friendly and the pool and communal areas very clean and well kept. Paderne is a traditional place with very friendly locals. Os Arcos restaurant is highly recommended. The village is close to many lovely beaches and fontes. We are looking forward to come back soon. Thanks Colin and family for making our holiday so enjoyable …
A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN COUNTRYSIDE VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL AND RELAXING VIEWS
Fab holiday in a beautiful villa but a shame it has not been maintained well
Overall the villa was beautiful, very spacious and well equipped. The pool and kitchen were very clean and tidy. However some aspects of the property (ones of which I chose it for) were not in very good state of repair. For example the wooden swing set snapped when my little boy was using it and on close inspection the wood was completely rotton which was very dangerous, thankfully he was ok. There were also an ant infestation in one of the bedrooms and dead plants around the house which looked unsightly. We requested a highchair for our baby and upon arrival i was shocked to see a rotton one with screw sticking out and the wood snapped which was really dangerous and could obviously could not be used. None of the issues ruined our holiday however they are things that you would expect to be of a better standard. I reported the highchair at the time however I did not see the point in reporting the issues about the swing set and trampoline etc as these wouldn't have been able to have been rectified while we were there. As previously mentioned the house itself is stunning and it was lovely to be in more traditional house rather than a touristy area. The swimming pool is great and is in direct sun all day so always of a temperature to be used. The grounds are filled with fruit trees and the villa has lovely views of the surrounding area. We did have a fantastic holiday overall and would visit again future if the issues were rectified. …
Promessa 4 bedroom villa with private pool, FREE air con and Wi-Fi
Great family villa in beautiful peaceful Algarve countryside
We spent a perfect family holiday in this comfortable well equipped villa with pool within its extensive grounds and great views. Lovely to eat all meals outside at large table. We enjoyed exploring nearby villages such as Alte and Paderne and shoppping locally at the markets as well as visiting Silves and Monchique. Albufeira and the coast with its beautiful secluded beaches were easily accessible at only approximately 20 mins drive away.
A car is essential - a perfect place if you want to et away from the crowds. …
