“Excellent villa ”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here with family in August 2016, the villa is very well equipped with everything needed to make a great family holiday. Located directly opposite the Hilton hotel and next to the Pinhal golf course and only a 20 minute walk to the popular Marina makes it a great location, but be aware of the sometimes noisy passing traffic.

Our family sometimes popped over the road to the Hilton and made use of the many facilities on offer.

We had one or two minor issues with the villa during our stay but these were quickly sorted out for us by the Dutch management company Allure Villas.

Overall I would recommend this villa for anyone looking for a luxury stay in Vilamoura.

“Lovely Villa”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Villa is spacious, comfortable and well equipped, particularly the kitchen which has more pots, pans, cups, glasses and utensils than in my own home! The bedrooms are all large with comfortable beds and ample wardrobe space. Inside, I couldn't fault it :o) Being a corner plot the gardens, though well maintained, were a little awkward with limited space around the pool for relaxing or children to play. The pool suffers also from this, having access from only 3 sides. This said the pool is well looked after and very inviting on a warm summers day.

The Villa benefits by being opposite the Hilton hotel, as the tourist train regularly stops there, taking you down to the Marina and beach in 10 minutes. Also, the Hotel sells daily newspapers which is handy. For the brave (we did) you can also easily use their facilities such as the pools which are fantastic and great for kids.

We'd recommend hiring a car or bikes as the closest supermarket is 20/25 minutes away, making it quite time consuming round trip. As we have a small child (16 months) we used the bbq mostly evenings, rather than eat out, so a trip out to the shops was a daily occurrence.

All in all we had a relaxing holiday in a lovely Villa and were well looked after by the Villa managed when called upon - just wished it was located closer to the shops!

My husband and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this year and wanted to take our adult children on holiday. We chose this villa because of the name Sophia after my late mother, The villa was more than we expected we loved everything about it and we were all very upset to leave, the villa and the grounds were exceptional and was extremely well equipped.There was easy access to Vilamoura center and the marina, would definately book to stay in the villa again
