“We had an enjoyable, relaxing experience.”
The villa was all you could wish for, the owners welcoming, helpful but not intrusive. From the villa it was easy to get about and see the surrounding coastlines and villages. The Portuguese were very friendly and most spoke English. Would just say if you are looking for a Portuguese experience, don't go there..
Owner's reply: Take it you mean to the Algarve. However there are lots of Portuguese experiences, wish you has asked. Glad you had a lovely relaxing holiday though and thank you for your review.
“Wonderful - Can't fault it!”
We went with our three year old. And the location, accommodation and facilities were perfect. Also the owners were really welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive just as they suggested. Wonderful pool and lovely beaches close by. You would not be disappointed if you went to stay here.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your report, was great to see the wee one learning to swim, full of confidence when he left !!
“A week in Paradise”
We have just enjoyed a truly wonderful relaxing holiday at The Lodge M.M. It is situated in beautiful gardens with views towards the sea, a stunning setting. The Lodge has everything you would need and more, right down to beach toys for the kids.The standard of cleanliness is second to none, the best we have ever seen in many years of villa holidays. Gill and Bruce were excellent hosts helping out on any queries, restaurant info etc and at the same time also giving us space to enjoy our holiday. The daily visits from the dogs (Flute and Truffles) kept us all entertained. We will be returning to The Lodge for more chill out time and if you are thinking about making a visit we cannot recommend it highly enough.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, and will look forward to seeing you back in August !!
“Total relaxation away from the hustle and bustle”
My husband and I had ten days of total relaxation at the lodge. The owners are very friendly but leave you to get on with it but there if needed. The pool is wonderful it is heated so by mid afternoon when the sun has been shinning on it all day its like having a warm bath. Shops, beaches are all close at hand so no long drives, although we did venture to lisbourne by car and the roads were extremely quiet no hassle at all. Gillian the owner has thought of everything to make the lodge a home from home, will be returning.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for writing your review, I remember you saying how relaxed you felt within hours of arriving!! I know from experience it can take a couple of days to settle, but hopefully (and it appears from reviews) our guests feel relaxed enough to enjoy every minute of their holidays here ! We are here if needed, but otherwise we leave our guests in peace !!
What a wonderful, tranquil haven where we relaxed instantly. Welcomed warmly and professionally by our hosts we found ourselves quickly enjoying the pool. Clean, warm and a great size for the whole family to enjoy together and set in immaculate expansive gardens. The Lodge is equipped with everything you need and everything you don't know you need for a fantastic holiday; fluffy towels, books to read, beach boards and sun parasol to take with you as you explore the fabulous local beaches. Outside your patio doors you'll find a large stone patio complete with sun loungers and a dining table so you can enjoy the warmth of the Algarve, day or night. Bruce and Gill managed to achieve a perfect balance between making us feel completely at home and looked after and being professional and respectful of our holiday space. I've never before felt so at ease on holiday and must put that down to our hosts and what they have created at the Lodge. Truly magical, thank you.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind words, kinda getting the feeling we must be doing something right!!! We enjoy seeing our guests relaxing and if needed suggesting places to eat, beaches to visit or sights you may want to see ! Thank you for your booking for next year look forward to seeing you all then !
We have just returned from 2 glorious weeks at the Lodge. It is difficult to say anything that hasn't already been said in previous reviews, only to say that if you want lovely views, peaceful location, excellent accomodation, great sun terrace, then this is the place. We were lucky enough to find the lodge fairly last minute, and right from initial enquiries to arrival everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend, unless you want all night bars and loud music on your doorstep, then this is probably not the place for you. We came away feeling totally relaxed and will definately be going back. Gill and Bruce are very freindly people, and I am so glad they decided to share this lovely part of Portugal
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of our Holiday rental villa, we are thrilled you enjoyed your holiday here on the Algarve and see you have booked to stay with us again next summer, wonderful see you then.
“A perfect piece of heaven on the Algarve”
We have been to the Algarve five times, but our stay at The Lodge, M.M. was the best holiday ever. A wonderful setting, beautifully equipped and furnished villa, very close to superb beaches, especially Albandeira, Lagoa and Carveiro only 10 minutes away, peace and quiet, superb weather and great hosts, Gill and Bruce, who were extremely helpful whenever we needed information etc. and their two sweet dogs. They were charming and made our stay at the villa a time that we will never forget. If you want a piece of heaven on earth, spend some time at The Lodge - you will never want to stay anywhere else on the Algarve!
Owner's reply: Wow what a lovely review, thank you so much for taking the time to write it. We are thrilled you loved your holiday here in Caramujeira and delighted this is now your favourite place, after all your stays on the Algarve, this means a lot to us. Hope to see you both again
It’s hard to know where to start with writing this review about Lodge M.M. It is truly a wonderful villa and I hope my review can do it justice. We stayed here for a fortnight on our first visit to Portugal. Transfer time from the airport was roughly an hour – we used the N-125 rather than the tolled motorway. The villa was set behind electronically operated metal gates and felt extremely safe and secure. The villa had everything you could ever want and more to make this a true home from home stay. It was spotlessly clean, extremely well furnished and very peaceful. Even though the outside temperature reached 38 – 40 degrees on several days throughout our stay it was always a very cool pleasant temperature inside – so much so that we did not need to use the air conditioning unit or fans supplied in the villa. The kitchen was ample big enough and furnished to a very high standard – including a Siemens oven. It contained every utensil you could need or want to enable you to cook a full family meal if you so wished. The welcome pack was very much appreciated – water, wine, tea, coffee and ice cubes! Gill and Bruce even offered to get us some essentials in to keep us going until we could get to the supermarket ourselves (which we were very grateful for). The lounge / dining area looked out over the grounds and the sea in the distance. It was well furnished with a leather sofa, 2 chairs, a coffee table and a 6 seater dining table. The large flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD player certainly got some use enabling us to watch all Olympic events and children’s programmes. The two bedrooms are lovely and have ample storage space in them. Gill and Bruce not only provide bedding and towels for the villa but beach/pool towels as well. The bedding and towels were changed in the middle of our stay – which was well sufficient given the number of towels provided. The bathroom was very well planned and contained a walk in shower, which was divine. The patio area in front of the villa had amazing views of the tranquil surroundings and the gardens. The sun loungers were extremely comfy and the canopy provided some very good shade. The pool, as already mentioned in other reviews, was heated to a stable 30 degrees and was wonderful. The pool is shared with Gill and Bruce but they do not use it when guests are using it. The villa is well situated to be able to explore all areas of the Algarve. We would highly recommend a hire car to be able to get around and visit all the local beaches, resorts and many attractions in the Algarve. We would particularly recommend Gelados and Companhia (an ice-cream parlour) in Carveiro. All the ice-creams are made by hand in the parlour and all taste exquisite. If you are wanting to party all night and are wanting a lively place to stay – don’t come here! This villa is set in a very quiet residential area which is perfect for a chilled out holiday. It was great to have Gill and Bruce, the owners, (and Flute and Truffles, the two gorgeous dogs!) on site. They are fantastic, friendly people. They gave us loads of advice regarding where to go, beaches to try, restaurants to eat in, in fact any query we had they helped with. They made our stay at Lodge M.M. a truly memorable one. If we return to the Algarve we will definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, be staying at Lodge M.M. Thank you for a lovely holiday Gill, Bruce, Flute and Truffles!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for those lovely words! It means a lot that you have taken the time to write your review. We hope you will come back to Algarve so we can keep in touch with your adorable daughter, what a delight she was, laughing and smiling all the time, never heard one grumble, you must be so proud of her, we miss her chuckling in the pool!!! Let us know if you do get a dog!!!
We have just returned from 10 wonderful days at The Lodge having stayed there last year. If anyone is looking for complete relaxation yet a home from home, then the Lodge is for you. Attention to detail is second to none from the soft robes in the wardrobes, safe for your valuable and Gill’s offer to get provisions in for your arrival. It is extremely well equipped both in the kitchen and all the incidentals you would need for your relaxation and comfort such as parasols for your trip to the wonderful beaches all close by. You can eat at a different restaurant every night or enjoy a home cooked meal/BBQ and watch the sun set from the patio. I used to wonder why people would go to the same resort/accommodation every year; well the Lodge is your answer, why work so hard for a holiday only to find appalling accommodation, when you can have sheer luxury (hoping to return next year). Liz and Michael;
Owner's reply: Really thrilled you enjoyed your second stay with us, look forward to seeing you again god willing!! Thank you for those lovely comments.
“A hidden gem.”
We had a fabulous 10 days at the MM Lodge. The Lodge was very comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipt. The pool was occupied by our two children, (13 and 10) for most of the time and was extremely clean. The gardens were beautifully maintain and a joy to explore. Thank you to the owners for there knowledge of the area, the great restaurants, and the amazing beaches. This Lodge was a peaceful get away from it all, which is what we needed. A hidden gem in every way.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review ~ another lovely one ~ we just thrilled you all enjoy you vacation with us.
