“FANTASTIC!”

We have just returned from a weeks stay in this fabulous villa. We travelled as a group of friends, 1 child and a baby. From the minute we booked the villa to the minute we left the service we recieved from Nuno and his representative was second to none, so Nuno if you are reading thank you!

The location of the villa is ideal, its just a few minutes drive by car to the albufeira strip but far enough away to relax, or of you are feeling adventurous you can walk. The villa itself is stunning and so much bigger than the photos suggest. When we arrived we were all speechless. It was imacculate upon arrival and the lady kindly showed us how things work and how to get wifi.

The terrace area is great for al fresco dining and we made the most of the beautiful weather we had whilst there. We also used the BBQ area numerous times, so much so my husband now wants one building at home!

The swimming pool is an ideal size, (if a little cold but this was early season) although had started to warm up towards the end of the week. It has steps into it which was great for the children and has fencing and gates all around so you can close it off, excellent way of keeping track of the kids! Even with 6 adults and 2 children plus numerous flotation items we had plenty of room!

Maid service was once a week and you get to choose what time you would like her to attend, a nice touch, that way we could plan to be out so not to bother her. A good job was done too!

All of the bedrooms are decent size and we were lucky enough to stay in the downstairs suite, it was huge!! The family bathroom upstairs catered for all our friends' needs and the landing area upstairs is great, leading onto a beautiful baclony/terrace.

The villa has been well designed giving you a lot of internal and external space, ideal for us brits who just want to spend our holidays outside!

Yes people have mentioned the villa is on a main road but that didnt bother us, the traffic was mainly first thing and at dinner time but doesnt affect your stay at all.

Overall we have all had an amazing week in this villa and have already discussed going back but for longer. i really cant wait to be back in such a glorious home from home!

Hi again!
In first place we would like to thankyou very much for your opinion because only this way, we can get better at what we do.
We never provide dishwasher tablets or washing powder but, after you have given us this idea, we are considering it for the future rentals.
It`s a very good idea.
The cleaning is only weekly but we can have another cleaning done in the middle of the week on your request with no extra charge.
In your case since your stay was for 10 days, a cleaning should have been done someware in the middle of the week having the bin liners replaced and adding more toillet rolls.
We always ask our guests to contact us for any minor issues that may come up.
We always have small welcome packs for guests when families are travelling with children and are arriving our villa late at night, with no extra charge.
When guests arrive late, there is no time for them to go out shopping, this way they will have milk, coffee, water and cereal when they arrive.
But if guests do prefer having other goods when they arrive, they could request these goods by email and we will be happy to go out shopping for you (this would be an extra service and would have to be paid seperately).
We would like to thankyou again for your opinion because this way we can get better and have our guests happy with our assistance.
Thanks again!

In first place we would like to thankyou very much for your opinion, because only this way we can make changes to provide a better service to our new comeing guests.
We were very sad to here that you were not able to rest because of the barking dog.
This is not a normal situation because our neighbors do not have any dogs.
But after we had a word with our neighbors which we know for years, told us that they did have family over for a fiew days and did have a dog.
So we presume that it was this situation that, with one fone call of yours and we could have peacefully solved this minor issue.
We are always present in any situation to solve any issues that might occure during your stay in our villa.
That`s why we always ask our guests to always be in contact with us to solve any issues that may occure, by email, by text message or by a simple fone call.
We`re sure that in a couple of hours we will be able to sort out any possible issues.
The only issue that is impossibe to change is the fact that the villa sits beside a secondary road that is normally calmer than any other main road arround Albufeira.
Any road closer to Albufeira is alot noisier but this is an issue that unfortunately we can not change.
We would like to say we are sorry and thank you again for your contact to help us be better at what we do.
Thanks again!
