“a wonderful garden villa trio, away from the tourist vibe”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2015

We stayed as a trio, mum, dad and a 2 and a half year old in October 2015. On arrival we were immediately delighted with our choice of villa for 6 days out of a 10 day trip to Portugal. We have been to the area before but we stayed with friends who didn't get much chance to show us around the areas around Lagos. Quinta de Varzea Grande is the perfect spot to explore this lovely part of the Algarve. Set away from the touristy areas, surrounded by small villages, with some of the most stunning natural beaches (great for surfing) just a 15-20 minute drive away, and with superb garden/barbecue and lovely clean pool which was just perfect for us as a small family. Mark and Ruth are exceptional hosts. They put a great deal of work into keeping the property beautifully maintained. Everything we could have needed in terms of cooking appliances/washing facilities were in place. They provide a lovely welcome pack on arrival, we actually surprised them by arriving earlier than expected, but they were very gracious about this and made us feel incredibly welcome. You will need a car to get to and from the villa because it is tucked away, but we enjoyed this aspect because we got to explore the surrounding villages outside of the major tourist hub. There are ample supermarkets within 20 minutes that provide everything a family needs. In short we would definitely recommend the villa to friends and family with or without children. The Quinta is in fact 3 villas (we stayed in the 2 bedroom accomodation) of various sizes - perfect for a large family with teenagers who want their own space.

“Definetely a place to return to”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2015

A very beautiful holiday villa in a wonderful location with very friendly and helpful owners. The ideal place for a holiday of several families or a larger group of friends and very good with kids. The houses were very well-equipped with really everything we needed. Also there was a lovely welcome package waiting for us at the arrival with the essentials for the first breakfast or snack as well as a delicious wine. Last but not least, the surrounding with its beautiful beaches is great. We'll definetly be back when we get the chance!

“Beauté et Sérénité”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2015

Mark et Ruth nous ont réservé un excellent accueil dans leur propriété.L'appartement que nous occupions (AMENDOA) était très agréable, lumineux, fonctionnel et propre, et nous avions plusieurs vues sur la campagne environnante très belle, ou sur la piscine parfaitement entretenue par Mark, avec lequel nous échangions de temps à autre sur nos visites ou nos journées. A notre arrivée, un pack de bienvenue était à notre disposition pour le petit-déjeuner et un dîner de secours.Mark et Ruth étaient très disponibles pour nos éventuelles demandes, tout en faisant preuve d'une grande discrétion. Cette propriété et le jardin qui l'entoure est un endroit paisible, très beau, la campagne environnante est magnifique.C'est un lieu ou le temps s'arrête, et ou les parisiens que nous sommes avons vite perdu la notion du temps .Amendoa n'est pas loin de Lagos(6 km) , des belles plages du sud et de la côte ouest, et aussi de la Serra De Monchique, d'ou la grande possibilité de varier les ballades.Cette propriété comporte plusieurs appartements, ce qui donne l'opportunité de venir séjourner avec des amis, tout en gardant son indépendance. Nous songeons déjà à revenir dans cette belle Algarve, et La Quinta Da Varzae Grande sera sans nul doute notre point de chute! C et T de Paris

“Perfect villa in beautiful location - a real home from home”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

In short, Amendoa (and Quinta da Varzea Grande as a whole) is a really fantastic place to stay. We (myself, my husband and our baby son (1)) have just returned from a brilliant 10 days here. The booking process is so easy and Mark/Ruth (villa owners) are really quick to get back to any emails or queries. In fact they are extremely helpful before you even get to Portugal!! I had a couple of baby specific queries as it was the first time we took our son (who is 1) abroad and Ruth was happy to help - even checking out whether the local supermarket stocked our preferred brand of nappy!! The villa is in a beautiful location set in the countryside but with easy access to all local amenities including the many gorgeous beaches located in the surrounding area. A car is essential but Mark & Ruth are able to sort out hire car bookings with no hassle whatsoever. The villa is lovely and clean and has plenty of space and there is full air conditioning in the lounge if needed for those extra hot days. The showers in the villa area great - lovely and warm and powerful. All necessary utensils etc are provided and we stayed at the villa and cooked most nights so our son could go to bed! Even if there is something extra you need Mark/Ruth will happily provide it without a problem, as they did for us. The villa has a private seating area and sunbeds and cushions are provided which can be used by the pool or on the private terrace (which has a great view overlooking the local golf course) - we had great weather the whole time we were there so there were plenty of places at the villa to enjoy the sunshine and relax in peace. The solar heated pool is a real star feature of the villa - a great size and kept lovely and clean (cleaned every morning by Mark). We used it every day and my son loved splashing around in the water. There is a great BBQ area with all facilities provided which we used on a couple of occasions and a lovely seating area overlooking the gardens - a great spot to enjoy a nice cold glass of wine in the early evening sun! On arrival you are provided with a welcome pack which is really handy and contains the basics for your first night - including milk, bread, butter, jam, water and even a bottle of wine. Ruth even made sure that we had some full fat milk for our son for the first night. We made full use of the facilities at the villa during our holiday and also explored the majority of the local area - nearby Barao de Sao Joao has some very quaint small cafes for a coffee and Praia de Luiz is 5-10mins drive from the villa where there are plenty of restaurants and shops to browse and obviously the beach. We found the beach at Luz a bit crowded and not the cleanest so we ventured a bit further to Salema (about a 15-20min drive from the villa) where the beach was stunning - Salema also has some great restaurants - Casa Pizza has a terrace where you can have really delicious seafood and pizzas looking out over the bay. Lagos Zoo is well worth a visit, really well kept, the animals are well looked after and there are lots of monkeys and birds to see. We had a really fantastic holiday and will definitely be staying here again on our return to the Algarve - highly recommended.

“Fabulous location, lovely villas”

Reviewed 1 May 2013

Lovely villas - the outdoor areas are particularly good, especially the pool. Ideal for a family gathering with the large barbecue area being a great place to socialise. The individual terraces outside each bedroom mean that it is also quite private. Well maintained both inside and out.

“peaceful & relaxing with great pool”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

Mark and Ruth were very welcoming and helpful. We had booked both villas with family and were impressed with the facilities and overall cleanliness of the villa. The area is very peaceful with lovely views of the surrounding area although a car is essential as the porperty is quite remote. The highlight of this property for us was the pool which is of a good size and was immaculately maintained on a daily basis. Overall a very relaxing and peaceful holiday.
