“Perfect Big Family Villa”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Myself and my family stayed here from 24/04 to 02/05. There was 25 of us in total including a mix of Adults, Children and Infants.

Although the villa is stated as called villa Laranja it is best just to refer to it as "33 Fonte Santa" as everyone knows where that is - No one knows its called Laranja.

Most bed rooms have en-suite or shared en-suite facilities. The rooms were all of a good size and suited a mixed family/group with a mix of twin beds and doubles. The living area was very spacious and had plenty of comfy seating - enough for everyone!

Kitchen was a good size and had great cooking facilities with 3 fridge freezers and everything you would ever need to cook with! Pool was a little smaller than the pictures made it look however still big enough providing all 26 of you don't go in at the same time :).

Very well kept gardens, grass and have a lovely lemon tree at the bottom of the gard which goes great in your drinks on a night!

We paid for kegs of beer whilst we were there and would highly recommend it as was €150 per keg but you got about 70 pints out of it so only worked out just over £1.20 a pint and was lovely - very refreshing in the sunshine whilst chilling in your own private space.

The villas location was also quite good. It was only a 5-10 minute walk to a big Lidl shopping market to get your weeks shopping in and cheap booze and also a few close restraunts and bars nearby. Also on a Wednesday there is a huge market next to Lidl which sells just about anything and you can pick stuff up very cheap - Just remember to barter!

Taxi to Villamoura will take you 10 minutes and is only €10 so you are in arms reach of some real nice resorts but also have the option to chill in your peaceful villa!

All in all a great experience and would definitely recommend this villa to anyone!

I am sure we will return again in the not so distant future.

“Perfect for our first family holiday in 20 years”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

My family and I stayed at this villa for a week and had a lovely time.

The ages of our group ranged from 3 to 74 and there was plenty of space and lots to do for all ages. Having sky and bt & setanta sports on the TV was a bonus for the football fans among us too.

All the bedrooms having their own en suite bathrooms was a real bonus, and there was a midweek towel / bedding change, which was a nice surprise.

We had hire cars, which we were glad of, as it wasn't really walking distance from any restaurants for some members of the group, but with such a well equipped kitchen and large barbecue are we didn't go out for many meals. We also took advantage of the option to buy a keg of Estrella Damm for the pump in the games room / barbecue area, which was an added bonus.

Filipe and everyone we met during our stay were very very friendly and helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa, in fact we hope to book again ourselves.

“Superb base for our large group”

We loved our stay at the villa and Filipe couldn't have been any better even though he had a lot going on with his other properties nothing was too much trouble for him.

This is a superb villa for a large group there were 20 of us staying and we never felt squashed in as the villa and plot is huge.

With all the extras like sky, wifi etc it is like a home from home, 8 of us played golf and all course were within a 15minute drive so was perfect and Vilamoura marina for the evenings was only a 10 euro taxi ride away, Lidl is a 15 minute walk as well as a handful of traditional restaurants.
This holiday made a welcome change from the usual all inclusive holidays everyone goes on nowadays, this is how holidays should be.

We are now looking a booking for next year, maybe try one of the other villas.
Thanks Filipe

“Great villa for large groups”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The villa is perfect for large groups of people; there is plenty of space and equipment (seats, plates, glasses) etc - the property was very clean, could do with a slight update but nothing dramatic!
The grounds of the villa are all enclosed so very safe, the pool was very clean and well heated. The outdoor seating area was perfect as a canopy was provided if required, the BBQ area was a brilliant social space.
The gym and games room was a great addition, especially if it was too warm outside.
Filipe the owner was amazing, so very helpful and went out of his way to make out stay.
We also took advantage of a chef whilst we visitied whcih Filipe set up for us, who was great value and a really great cook!
The villa is just over 1km from the beach and a short taxi ride (c.€10) into villamoura.

I would most definatly recommend this villa, in fact i would go back myself or visit one of Filipes other villas. Highly recommended for large parties.

“Great place to stay with a large family”

We stayed here a week with a large family (12 adults, 9 children, 0-14 years old) and had a great time. Enough space outside to play for the children, lot of facilities. Nice pool with heating.
If we've to mention an improvement; the indoor kitchen hasn't the capacity to cater a large group. An extra oven and cooktop would be nice. We managed it well with the outdoor kitchen which has a large barbecue.
The villa is located in a quiet area and near the beach (about 1 kilometer).
Faro Airport is about 15-20 minutes driving by car.
