“Great stay Great house”
Reviewed 21 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

First, Cristina and Antono who rent the property are wonderful people. They were gracious throughout our week stay. For example, Antono gave us a thorough review on all the local services. The house is beautiful. There is a gaming room, television, WiFi, pool, full kitchen, etc. We had a party of 10 at the house. We had a great week. I highly recommend the property. One last note, we knew that the pool at this house is not heated. Since we were visiting in December, we did not expect to use the pool but we still had a great time going to the beautiful beaches within walking distance and visiting the local tourist attractions.

Thank you very much for your kind review.
We are thinking on putting a pool heating system in the near future.
Look forwards to welcome you at Villa Santos again in the near future.

Just got back from a week here and it was brilliant. Paulo and Christina were great and very attentive, even when we arrived 6 hours early - we could leave our bags and head up the road for a swim and lunch at Restaurant Sunshine who are their friends.

Lovely villa, spacious with good facilities both indoors and out. The pool is great and catches the sun most of the day, with plenty of shade available in the garden under the giant (pineapple) palm. The (detached) games room was underused by us as we were too busy out and about but is well equipped (note though that bathroom 4 is in here). The BBQ is a good size, but we didn't use the pizza oven as it was huge and we probably didn't have enough charcoal. The kitchen is well equipped with all the mod cons and a good washing machine - together with the washing line behind the games room it meant we could wash & dry within 2 hours and keep on top of things.

The only real improvement internally I would say would be to have an Air Con unit upstairs for the master bedroom.

The location is out of town on a quiet road but still only 5 mins drive from Sao Rafael and other beaches so good for families. The old town and marina are less than 5 mins drive away, although the taxi rank at the marina seems somewhat deserted in the evening ... (don't worry - the walk is less than 15 mins, even with kids!).

For shopping use the Oceano supermarket 2 mins drive up the road that has a great range of fresh food, wine, beer, etc. (forget Algarve Shopping - too big, too far, expensive).

“Great holiday, clean spacious villa and very accommodating helpful owners”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our party consisted of two families (7 people) and there was plenty of space which meant we didn't feel on top of each other. Lovely garden area with pool, plenty of outdoor seating for relaxing or dinning and bed rooms are a good size. Paulo and Cristina, the owners, were fantastic and incredibly prompt from the outset when booking and during our stay with any questions or help required. Only a 2mins taxi drive to the marina, where you can book boat trips and other activities, there are also 5-6 restaurants there and overall a very welcoming atmosphere. Old town is 4mins drive away and great for families, there are also plenty of local beeches to visit nearby (anywhere between 3-6mins drive). For shopping there is a very convenient supermarket (Oceano) which is 5mins drive away - thankfully all this information and other great tips are in a brilliant information book Paulo and Cristina have put together. Super holiday, thank you Cristina and Paulo

“Beautiful villa, stunning surroundings, perfect holiday”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in this beautiful villa, the end of April / beginning of May, it was clean, spacious, very comfortable and so beautifully decorated. Location is perfect, nestled in lovely quiet surroundings yet the Old Town in only 5 minutes in a taxi. Villa is completely private and peaceful. The pool area is very relaxing with lots of pool accessories supplied which was very handy. The pool itself is nice but quite dangerous, it dips very steeply into the deep end and is easy to slip, spent most of the time sitting in the baby pool with my twins (10 months old). There is a swing and a slide there also for older children. The games room is great at night when the babies were in bed, totally sound proof, so we could just bring the monitor in and be as loud as we liked. We really enjoyed the dart board but there were only two proper darts, the rest were plastic, so couldn't really play properly. We didn't make use of the outdoor bbq or stone oven, the week just went too quick, we will definitely use it next time, it's fully equiped. The villa has everything in it you could need, which really makes it feel like a home away from home, plenty of kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, lots of games, books, dvds etc. The only thing is our bed was uncomfortable and lumpy, we stayed in the downstairs double bed, although one of the guests stayed in the upstairs bedroom and said the bed was very comfortable. The owners Paulo and Cristina were very friendly and helpful, we arrived in on a late flight and Paulo very kindly brought us shopping so we could pick up groceries for the following morning, and even bought us a pizza! They also leave a very handy folder with handy tips and recommendations with maps etc.we found this very useful. Overall I would highly recommend this wonderful villa and we are already planning our next trip and will be bringing more people with us next year!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for a week in mid April, the Villa is wonderful, looks even better in real life than in the photo's. Four large, spacious bedrooms, large open plan living area, modern kitchen, nice gardens and pool, and a separate games room and barbecue area tick all the boxes!

The owners Christina and Paulo are extremely nice people, very helpful and live nearby in the unlikely event of any problems. We would highly recommend this Villa to others.
