This was our third visit to Villa Bougainvilla and it is a great villa that we love visiting.
It is perfect in every way for a holiday - the decor and furniture is wonderful, especially with the new bathrooms and this villa has everything you need. The beds are comfortable and the main bed is huge on the top floor on it's own. The pool and terrace area are great and the perfect place to spend all evening relaxing.
The villa is on the edge of a nature reserve which gives you access to the very big beach within a 15 minute walks. This is a great place to go for a run if you are so inclined.
It's a nice quiet area but also accessible to everything you need. The beach is a 2 minute drive if you prefer, Julia's (and other restaurants) are a 5 minute drive, Quinta shopping is 10 mins which has a supermarket, cafe, pizzeria. Restaurant Alambique is great and only 10 mins as well.
There is a lake - which is a 15 minute walk through the nature reserve with a cafe called The Shack - this is much better for small children to paddle in, much calmer than the Atlantic. It has pedalos and the like as well.
All in all a great place and can't wait to go back!
Villa is gorgeous and so comfortable. Kids loved the heated pool and were so impressed it was lit up at night. It had everything we needed - and more! It's a 10/15minute walk through a nuture reserve to a lovely sandy stretch of Atlantic coast which is dotted with nice beach bars and restaurants. A gem!
Stunning villa, spacious and incredibly well equipped. The pool is truly wonderful. It was a daily struggle to choose between cooking on the wood fired pizza oven and the awesome Green Egg Barbeque. We had to force ourselves away from the villa to explore the local area, finding it only a 5 min walk to a stunning beach complete with beach bars and excellent restaurants. Quote from my eldest child (age 14), 'Mum, I think I know what I want from my holiday now...can we come back next year?' If I could give it 6 stars then I would. Enjoy!
This very well equipped villa is on a beautiful development close to the beach around 25 minutes driving from Faro Airport. We travelled as a family group of 8, using all 5 bedrooms including the family room for our 8 year old daughter. All bedrooms have air con (which was necessary!) and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The pool can be accessed via patio doors from either the kitchen or the sitting room and is very clean and a good size with lots of places to relax, either in sun or shade. The kitchen has everything you could need and more, the owners have also recently added a very nice new BBQ (which we used) and an outdoor pizza oven (which we didn't use). There is an excellent supermarket around 10 minutes drive away (not Apolonia which is incredibly expensive) and we all enjoyed an exceptional meal at Boavida on the beach which is within easy walking distance.
We had a couple of minor problems on arrival which were very quickly dealt with by the property management company. Little touches like games, toys and dressing up clothes for children make Villa Bougainvillea stand out, plus the quirky artwork. We would strongly recommend and hope to visit again in the future.
