Beautiful Villa with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday staying at Villa Prinny. The Villa is beautiful and had everything we could won't or need with some fantastic views. The pool was brilliant and we all enjoyed having a great time in it.

The only draw back is its a little to far to walk into Tavira in the heat ( it was the end of July and the temperature was in the 30's), but there is a fantastic local taxi service which only cost around 5 euros to take 7 of us into Tavira and they were usually with you in 5 minutes.

Loved it!

Fabulous villa with fantastic indoor and outdoor space.

We visited this villa recently as an extended family, and it catered for all our needs from the youngest at 5, to the oldest at 70!

There was a games room to keep the kiddies occupied, while the oldies spent more time drinking wine, beers and coffee at the outside table.

The kitchen and dining area were spacious and modern with plenty of utensils.

Bedrooms did not dissappoint either. Lovely modern fitted wardrobes and equally nice bed linen, along with fabulous en suites.

All in all, we couldn't find one fault with this villa.

It really was the perfect getaway for an Easter break and we hope to return to it again

We can't recommend it highly enough :)

Within less than an hours drive there are 3 Waterparks on offer at Slide and Splash, Aqualand and Aquashow. Also Zoo Marine at Guia is a very popular day out for all ages. Lagos Zoo is great too and the Town of Lagos is very pretty making this a good day trip. The East algarve has many excellent golf courses to try and some cater for children too. The nearest is the 9 hole course at Coline Verde. Then the rest are 18 hole courses in order of distance from the Villa, Benamor, Quinta da Ria, Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei, Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale. All can be easily located online and offer various deals and rates depending on the time of year.

Inside the Villa is a welcome book crammed full of information of things to do and see during your holiday.

Also nearby is Santa Luzia, A lovely fishing village set on the banks of the Ria Formosa. The Village has some wonderful restaurants catering for all types of palate and some super cafes, just perfect for watching the world go by.

Head into Tavira and take time to enjoy the many churches (nice and cool in summer!) Also take in the sights of the Town by paying a visit to the Old castle now beautiful gardens. Take a moment to pop into the old water tower and see a 360 degree view of the City. Then relax by the water front in one of the many places to sit and enjoy a leisurely lunch or drink.

Or head towards Faro, the capital City of the Algarve and enjoy browsing the shops in the cobbled streets or visit the Marina and gardens then take a stroll into the Old City not forgetting the Chapel of Bones!
