We have visited the Algarve many times and stayed in a variety of locations and accommodation. We can honestly say this is one of the best. We booked Villa Vaniana because of it's location and facilities - it was everything we hoped for, in fact better. The others reviews are all spot on. It's beautifully situated just far enough from the hustle and bustle without being miles away from anywhere. We prefer to be in scenic locations so we were delighted with this. It was fabulous to have a beautiful view, be in the countryside, but also be so close to beaches and several lovely small towns. Villa Vaniana is also only 15/20 mins away from some of the big attractions like Zoo Marine and the fab shopping centre of Guia. The Villa and gardens themselves are all kept spotless and the pool is brilliant. The Villa was spacious, comfortable and we have never felt so at home when on holiday (with much better weather though!). The Villa is perfectly equipped. We often go away and struggle when a kitchen lacks a bread knife or bottle opener - this is far from it. There is even a Coffee pod machine! There is variety of utensils and everything you need to cook from home, including a large fridge freezer. The BBQ an Balcony are great too, it was easy to make a lovely meal as well as eat out in great restaurants near by. We have two children, 7 and 13. It was a major concern keeping them both happy on holiday being such different ages. The games room and pool solved this problem with our 13 year old, we were astounded - he didn't go near a Xbox for 10 days! Our 7 year old also had brilliant time and spent hours in the pool, played on the swings, trampoline, and ended up making friends with Mike and Agi's very cute daughter. Having the owners on site really turned out to be a a major bonus - they both went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, nothing was too much trouble. Mike and Agi are very friendly and easy going people so it was a pleasure having them there for us on site. We can only think of positive things to say about this holiday, we had the most fantastic time. Wish we were there now! We will definitely be back .
Wonderful accomodation, close to the sea, beautyfull swimmingpool for the kids and also the gaming room with table tennis, dards, pool and snooker tables.
If you have kids they will enjoy certainly!
You can also use a very confortable the barbeque!
The owners Mike and Agnieszka are very kind and will take care of you and give some suggestion to spend a fantastic holiday in Algarve.
For us it was a very enjoyable experience!
The description and pictures do not do it justice, although they are accurate, but you feel it's a lot more when you're there. The location is perfectly secluded, surrounded by beautiful scenery, orange groves, olive, fig, and palm trees. But at the same time you're about 5 to 10 minutes from shopping and beautiful beaches. Albufeira with its nice old town and marina is also a short 10 min drive. Faro Airport is about 25 minutes.
The entire villa inside and out is kept in an impeccable condition the pool is cleaned daily and covered at night, and the surrounding grounds always look fresh and inviting. The game room is spacious with enough to keep several people adults and children occupied with fun stuff, and you can listen to music of your choice using an installed Alexa. There is an outdoor shower by the pool area and a bathroom by the game room for convenience. You can also make use of a barbecue area that has a sink and and an outdoor dining area.
The apartment is spacious, designed with comfort in mind. You have everything you need. Quality bedding and linen, Kitchen well stocked with all the tools. Everything seemed to be new fresh and clean.
Parking is inside a gated area, and security cameras are installed. But the area feels very safe anyway.
Having said all of that, we saved the best for last. The owners Mike and Agi are some of nicest people we've ever met. They make you feel at home from the moment you meet them, they have 2 gorgeous well behaving children.
Mike and Agi are the perfect hosts, accommodating, and always willing to help make your trip an enjoyable one.
We will be staying here again in the future, but we have a feeling that we may have to book well in advance.
If you're looking for a tranquil, comfortable, serene place, and want to relax and have fun in the sun, this is a good place for that.
Me and my partner stayed here for 12 nights during May 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish. Michael and Agi could not do enough for us, as we arrived we were welcomed and shown around this fantastic villa, rooms sizes were brilliant, and the place was immaculate.
The games area with a pool table and darts was a lovely touch and great for relaxing in the evenings or just sitting by the swimming pool.
There was mobile air-conditioning units available but we didn’t use them it as we felt the rooms were cool enough.
The Villa itself is situated in a lovely location within close proximity to Albufeira and Villamoura. Priaia da falesia was our favourite of the beaches we visited during our stay and was only a 5-minute drive away.
The privacy of the location was superb and the private balcony was a great sun spot and not overlooked by anyone. As our first visit to the Algarve we would definitely recommend staying here and will be returning here in the future.
Nice quiet location only a short drive to the beach.
Decent sized pool and great views from the balcony.
A good vibe and the perfect place to chill and relax.
