Amazing villa!! You will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a wonderful week at 'Number 82' villa. The pictures really don't do this villa justice. It is just beautiful! Marie & Jochen were a pleasure to deal with from the point of booking all the way through to meeting & greeting us late at the villa on arrival. They also arranged our transfer to & from the airport with a trusted company they use which gave us piece of mind.

We were a party of 3 couples and the villa was plenty big enough to have our own space with each bedroom having its own bathroom.

The supermarket next door is brilliant and the beach/beach front restaurants are just a 5min walk away.

A cab ride into Albuferia was approx €13 and well worth a visit.

Can't recommend this villa enough. It was everything we wanted and more and we will all be recommending!

If you are going to book a villa on the Algarve make it this one. The villa is spotlessly clean inside and out.

We were met by Jochen and Marie on arrival at 11.45 pm they couldn't have been more helpful even leaving basics in the fridge for us.

The villa is well equipped with everything that you require. The swimming pool is a great size and well maintained every second or third day. The supermarket next door is very expensive, get the bare essentials from it and then get a taxi to Algarve shopping and go to the continente hyper market and stock up. Believe me you will save yourself a lot of money.

The best point about the villa is the people you are dealing with, nothing is too much trouble and they really know what people are looking for which is reflected in the property. Will definitely be going back.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this area on holiday for the past four years as love it. This villa is very special, so much space, meticulously clean, fabulous pool and next door to the waitrose by the sea type supermarket. We had no complaints at all and would recommend this villa and the wonderful hosts without hesitation.

A lovely spacious comfortable villa, Marie & Jochen were very welcoming and everything was ready for our arrival even though we were a little earlier than the official check in time. We were a family of five with a two year old, sometimes cots can be too small or not up to par but Marie had made the cot up beautifully and our daughter enjoyed some restful nights sleep :-) garden and pool were kept clean and we enjoyed a couple of bbq's under the pagoda with meat purchased from the very convenient supermarket next door, they also do a take away service if you don't fancy cooking! A little bit of noise from the lorries that deliver to the supermarket early in the mornings but this really is minor. We didn't hire a car as we felt we had everything we needed on the doorstep. Beautiful beach five minutes walk away with three good restaurants and all child friendly.

A really lovely place and I'm sure we will visit again :-)

My husband, 2 children and my parents visited the villa for 10 nights. We had the most relaxing break (as relaxed as you can be with a 4 yr old & 9 month old). The villa was so comfortable and Marie & Jochen had thought of everything! My father is disabled and we found the villa very suitable for him, although this was all checked out with Marie beforehand. Marie & Jochen were so helpful before arrival (via email) and while we were there, such a lovely couple! The garden/pool area was fantastic and we enjoyed BBQ's there. The supermarket next door sold the most delicious meat and other food's. We got a taxi into town a couple of times which only cost 10 euro's, it was lively with more fab restaurants and it made a change from Gale which is lovely and quiet. We didn't hire a car and didn't feel we missed out. We got the bus a few times and taxi's on other occasions. I highly recommend this property and we cannot wait to book again. Thank you again Marie & Jochen. The Everett's & Williams' x
