“Beautiful apartment in a prime position” This apartment exceeded our expectations and lived up to the lovely photos on the site.
Very easy to book, the owners could not have been more helpful and even arranged the taxi transfer to and from the apartment, which was spot on time.
Justina and Emanuel also emailed us full details of the location, trips and attractions in Quarteira and the region and arranged to have a lovely lady meet us with the keys, who showed us around.
We were able to text or phone them with any questions and arranged for the bedding and towels to be changed at our convenience.
All in all we had the most wonderful time and are re-booking for next year.
The apartment is on the third floor and the block has two lifts for access, but we would suggest contacting the owners if there are any mobility problems.
We are a couple in our 50's and found it to be just perfect for us, as the beach and sea was only 150 yards opposite the apartment and we could hear the sea throughout the day....so peaceful.
Practical things like a lovely balcony with table and chairs, washing machine and dishwasher made it easy to feel comfortable, and there are numerous cafes and restaurants nearby to cater for all tastes...the local fish is excellent.
This is a real gem...congratulations to Justina and Emanuel.
“A superb quality portuguese villa in a beautiful location” The villa looked great on the website.When we arrived and saw it in the flesh though it was a WOW moment.I went with wife and in law and children aged from 3 to 17. This villa fitted the bill perfectly. A large property with 4 beds and large kitchen/dining/lounge areas. A lovely patio overlooking a well cared for swimming pool of good size.A beautiful upstairs balcony runs alongside the master bedroom and the living room.The covered balcony being a lovely location to escape the midday sun yet still allow a cool breeze to pass over. Discreet fence around the pool to re-assure fears where younger children are concerned.Large gardens and driveaway that offer a good degree of privacy.Located close enough to Praia De Luz if you fancy a walk down to town and easier enough to travel to the lovely town of Lagos. The villa is fitted with a high standard of interior fixtures and fittings. Travel from Faro airport was around 50 minutes and basically it was on a straight highway so easy to navigate for those not relishing driving on holiday. It was that good we are already planning to return next year.
“A relaxing experience in an impeccable apartment.” Great holiday location,well equipped,spacious and clean apartment with magnificent Atlantic views.Generous sized pool,maintained to the highest standard.All amenities nearby and within walking distance.Great selection of restaurants/bars.Plenty of water sports and the beach is safe and clean.Will definitely visit again.
“Fab location, very peaceful......” The Paradisus Laguna apartments are a quiet, two storey complex located on the Millenium golf course, 5 mins by car from Vilamoura marina. Our two bedroom, ground floor apartment was ideally located, with the shared pool just outside our terrace, but kept private with a hedge. The rooms were spacious and well air conditioned, and the terrace very large with a dining area (and BBQ), large sofa seating area and sunloungers. The bathrooms and kitchen were extremely well equipped, with plenty of towels, including pool towels. There is very efficient WiFi and TV (Portuguese channels and payable sports only from what I can gather), although there was no time for TV, as there is so much to do in the surrounding area. There are some fantastic bars and restaurants in the marina and the local area, plenty of beaches and coves worth a visit, waterparks and boat excursions. We come to Vilamoura every year and this is by far the nicest apartment/best location we have stayed in - ideal for a family of four. Bicycle hire is available close by (similar rental system to the Boris bikes in London!), but I would recommend hiring a car to get the best out of the area.
“Idyllic Villa in fabulous, unspoilt location - Great for Kids” We expected a beautiful Villa from the description and photographs on Owners Direct and were not disapointed. The layout and facilities that the this villa had to offer were second to none. The building is so well designed and full of charicter. It makes the most of the sun shine throughout the whole day from the morning on the kitchen terrace where the kids enjoyed their breakfast every day to the pool and roof terraces where you could kick back and relax. The highlight for me (apart from the very large pool) was the very well laid out and equiped oustide bbq and pizza oven area where we cooked and ate our evening meals. You don't need to leave but if you do, Tavira was our favorite place and a very unspoilt town with a lovely square with some great restaurants. Andre, the Villa manager was on hand at all times should we have needed anything and the pool was maintained during our stay.
“A lovely villa with a warm welcome, perfect for families and couples.” My first impressions were that the villa itself was in a very good condition, complete with a wealth of facilities and extra touches such as dvd's for us to watch. The rooms were neat and nicely furnished, with a homely feel. The garden area was especially nice, with the swimming pool being the perfect size and depth to cater for both adults and children.
Throughout our stay we kept in contact with the owners who were helpful enough to recommend us places to eat and visit, or who sometimes just wanted to check we had everything we needed. It was this warm and friendly welcome that made our stay especially comfortable and made us feel more than just simply renters.
The only minor disadvantage is that a car is absolutely essential in order to reach shops and towns, but then with a car it is only a 10min drive to the beach. And on our holiday we ended up spending a lot of time at the villa anyway because it was such a nice place in itself to relax in. Overall definitely great value for money.
“Great modern apartment in central location” Great communication with the owner which makes all the difference when renting somewhere abroad. The apartment itself is nicely furnished with a large terrace. Small things like plenty of towels for the pool and the WiFi make it a very easy place to stay.
I would definitely recommend the apartment and plan to stay there again in the future.
