“Lovely Villa and Pool. Very relaxing and comfortable. Enjoyed by all.” We had a thorougly relaxing week by the heated Pool. Weather superb, and location ideal. Lots of comfortable sofas for evening relaxiation.
A personal welcome with glass of wine ( or beer) really appreciated after travelling.
Will hopefully return soon.
“A Stunning Villa in a Perfect Location” The villa is absolutely stunning and was perfect for our requirements. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed and the garden, pool and patio areas idyllic. The local area was perfect, with two beautiful beaches, bars, restaurants and a small supermarket within walking distance. The old town and marina are only a 20 minute walk away and more excellent restaurants can be found in nearby Gale and Guia.
The owners did everything they could to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. We will certainly be recommending Sobre o Mar to others and hope to return ourselves very soon.
“Peaceful & Relaxing Paloverde.” Paloverde sits in a tranquil part of Caramujiera, not overlooked and set in private surroundings. The farmhouse has been tastfully moderised and furnished throughout. The key features are, modern fuly functional working kitchen, three good size bedrooms, two with en-suite and a seperate tiolet for the thrid 'bunk room'. Fully heated and recently refurbished good size pool, with the pool area also being extended and re-tiled. The whole lay-out of the farmhouse makes our stay exetremely enjoyable from the moment you arrive and 'throw' back the big patio doors onto the pool area and relax around the pool area or under the veranda. There is nothing that we like least about Paloverde which is why we ahve been back on three seperate occasions in the apst three years.
“Beautiful” When we arrived at the area where villa mimi was in we were a bit disappointed as it seemed away from everything and the area a bit run down but as soon as we entered the villa we were gobsmacked. Claudio has a gorgeous place, too good for our kids. Everyone loved it especially the pool and underground games room. There is a stair gaurd at top of the stairs great if u have wondering kids (pity wasn't one at bottom minor) The pool was so warm as we used the cover that we were told to use only thing we had be extra cautious as there is no gaurd around the pool and it was quite deep but that didn't stop us. There is lovely restaurants/pubs "the Dubliner and Erin's isle" about 5 mins walk from villa . Lovely Irish bars. There is an inter marche up beside Erin's isle and the strip is only a 10 min walk from villa. Taxi into old town is 6€ per car. Couldn't fault the place. Thanks Claudio
“An Excellent Holiday” We recently returned from the Apartment in o pomar and traveled with my wife daughter and her cousin and my elderly parents.
We were looking for a "Home from Home" apartment with some quality and that is exactly what we got.
We had excellent communication before we traveled with Francis and was met by Ann(the agent) on arrival who explained everything about the apartment and area very well.
The apartment is obviously very new and has fantastic facilities which are all modern and easy to use.
We wanted a quiet location with easy access for my parents and again this was exactly what we got.
The pool area is only about 75 yards from the apartment and is very clean and safe with security access and a life guard on duty nearly all the time.
it was height of the season and therefore we had to be by the pool early to get beds and as usual some visitors would lay towels but not arrive till pm which was frustrating for some people as got quite busy and especially at the weekend.
The best thing though was the new restaurant (vert in ) as i have never eaten at a better restaurant abroad which offered quality food for reasonable pricing presented extremely well and in good time! i cannot recommend this place highly enough, but be warned good news spreads fast so book early each day!
The beach front is about a 15 min walk or train ride for elderly and young and then you have to get a boat ride to the other side of the jetty and then it is about a 400 mtr walk which proved a little too much for my parents so we only went once.
There are probably other restaurants and areas to visit but due to my parents inability to get about we just relaxed in the complex each day.
the only down side was lack of on site shop but i enjoyed the 10 mins walk each day for bits and pieces as we didn't have a car.
Our overall experience was great and we would definitely recommend to others looking for a quiet relaxing holiday and hope to return again.
“fab stay” Villa baia is a beautiful complex, and this apartment is excellent , spacious and ultra modern. i would highly recommend it to family and friends, you are very close to the beach and excellent restaurants that luz has. We had a fab stay and cant wait to return.
“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.
“All we could ask for...” The apartment was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable, even when we were joined by 2 family members, meaning we had to make use of the bed settee. There were lots of personal touches that made a difference to the holiday, including essentials being left in the kitchen, a fabulous TV and Music system, lots of reading material, CDs, DVDs and games. The apartment is bright and airy and the bed was more comfortable than ours at home !
The pool area was never too busy and again spotlessly clean. There is no bar or eating place there which we believe adds to its success - if you want to buy refreshments or lunch there is plenty of choice just a 2 min walk away.
The location is just fab - turn right for a 5 min walk to the beach or right for the same distance to the harbor - another few mins and you are on Alvor's lively strip where there is no shortage of restaurants and bars, without it being in any way gaudy. We did not hire a car - there was no need - transfers (we used yellow fish) were easy. If you did have a car you could reach any beach on the Algarve within an hour, Local beaches are just perfect though. A few mins walk gets you to a newly built boardwalk - if you walk a bit further you will come to some lovely coves.
We had a fabulous holiday and were totally happy with our choice pf apartment - it was all we asked for and more.
