Fantastic base for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go away very last minute with friends and booked this villa just a couple of weeks before our break. Because of this we were prepared for the villa to be ok but maybe not perfect. How wrong we were. Villa Topo was the perfect base for us, two families travelling together, to just chill out.

The management company, Kaiser, were more than helpful, checking in to make sure we were ok without being at all intrusive. They arranged for a minibus to pick us up for a night out in Albufeira and made a trip to Aqualand easy.

Villa Topo has just enough comfort inside, who needs multi channels on TV when you're on holiday? And the wifi worked just fine and there were very clear directions on how to use it. The little ones in our party loved the pool and the games room, we all loved the tranquil cul-de-sac and close proximity to the beach and great restaurants. (The one closest to the villa was particularly good.)

We would recommend this Viila to anyone, can't praise it highly enough.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay in Villa Topo, suitable for all ages.

Had the whole family out for my 60th, kids, grandkids, the lot.

The pool area was where we spent most of our days as the weather was to die for.

The villa was immaculate and the cute little maids would come by and refresh towels and bed linen without making a sound.

Everything was so well cared for and the games room was the icing on the cake to come back to in the evenings and continue the fun.

We had a wonderful time and the staff were very helpful by giving us maps and suggestions of where to go, what to eat, etc.

I would most certainly recommend to all my friends and we're already plotting our next escape to our Algarvean Paradise.

Great villa, poor management agents

  • 3 of 5


- Villa Topo is fully furnished, very spacious, finished to a very high standard, and very well maintained.

- Great location: 5 mins from Algarve Shopping and Zoo Marine, and 10 mins from Albufeira. Various lovely beaches are only 5 minutes away well.


- Cleaning: the villa was spotlessly cleaned when we arrived, but despite claiming that the villa is cleaned 3 times per week, it wasn’t cleaned even once during our stay! Towels were not changed either during our stay.

- TV: It is claimed that the villa has satellite TV. Well, there is a TV, and there is a dish on the roof, but the only channels the TV receives are several shopping channels, Sky News, and the Travel channel. This is clearly misleading.

- Internet: The villa does have internet (wi-fi) access, but be warned: it is received through the mobile network and not a landline, so the speed is pretty slow, and the total download+upload quota is limited to 3GB PER MONTHS (with signs in the villa warning you that you’ll be charged if you exceed that). So if you thought that perhaps Netflix/Prime etc will compensate for the lack of TV channels above, then forget about it…

- Very poor information pack: it is clear that the management agents recycles these between the properties, which is fine, but they completely failed to mentioned anything specific to this villa in the pack: everything described in it starts with “if there is a XXX in your property…” with no specific information regarding anything in this villa. Examples: 1) no mention of the wi-fi password anywhere (had to phone the agents). 2) took us 3 days to find the safe (couldn’t be bothered to phone the agents again), but with no instructions, we couldn’t use it. 3) found a key hidden behind a plant pot on the kitchen window, to discover the basement play room (fantastic, by the way, especially for rainy days!).

- Our flight was leaving very late, and although we are aware that we were not entitled to it, after confirming that no guests were arriving the following day, we asked the agents if we could stay for a couple more hours on our last day. They said that it wouldn’t be a problem, as long as we pay for another full day stay… I suppose they have quite a lot of cleaning to arrange after not organising any for a whole week… ;-)

Despite the above we had a really good time staying in Villa Topo, and we will happily stay there again. It is just a shame that the management agents were not up to scratch.

Owner's Response: Dear Amir 1) PROS: Thank you for mentioning the positive aspects as well. 2) CONS: - CLEANING: On one of the cleaning days, you actually met the cleaning ladies at the villa. They were just finishing their work when you returned to the property. They also changed the towels mid week. - TV/SATELLITE: This was a temporarily problem beyond our and the owner's control which has now been sorted so ITV and BBC channels are again available. Please note that satellite TV does not only refer to UK but also German channels, which can also be received without any problem. - INTERNET: We are aware of this problem but, unfortunately, there is no unlimited broadband available in the area where this villa is located. If the monthly traffic limit is exceeded, the internet provider charges the owner for the extra traffic and the speed drops drastically. This issue is completely beyond the owner's and our control. Since the TV/Satellite problem has now been sorted, we hope that 3GB are enough, although we understand that this is not ideal. As soon as unlimited internet becomes available in this area, it will also be available at this property. - INFO BOOK: The Info Book is supposed to provide basic information about the property and the surrounding area as detailed information is provided during the Meet & Greet at the villa. Besides that, our local management team can be reached 24/7. Nevertheless, we appreciate your feedback and will personalise all our Info Books for 2017. 1) The Wi-Fi password can be found on a sticker on the rooter and is now visibly labelled as well. It was also given to you by the local manager when you rang her at 11:00 pm. 2) The safe instructions were removed from the villa for some reason and have now been returned. Nevertheless our local management team would have assisted you in no time if you would have contacted them. 3) For some reason, one of the previous clients removed this key from the main bunch and placed it on the kitchen window sill. The key is now on the main bunch again. Our advert clearly indicates that the villa has a games room. We understand you were disappointed with the weather, which was not good during your stay. - LATE CHECK-OUT: No one asked you to pay another full day due to a late check-out. We are truly disappointed with your review as we aim to provide a flawless service to all our guests. So far we only received 5 STAR REVIEWS (see below). One of our clients likes this villa so much that he books it 3 times a year.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

In 18 years of travelling the world and staying in villas, villa topo rates in our family's top 3. The accommodation is perfectly described in the advert and the attention to detail in the villa is very impressive. The location was excellent for privacy, views and accessibility.

The villa was immaculately maintained and the management company were very professional and helpful.

The local restaurants within walking distance are superb and the beach was a 5 minute drive and perfect for families. Albufeira is a short drive away and caters for everyone.

Would highly recommend this villa and will definitely return.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second stay at this lovely Villa-which we can't praise enough and would highly recommend. We've stayed in many Villas in this area and this one is our real favourite. Excellent quiet location near the sea with good views particularly from the front, always very clean and well maintained with everything you require for a most relaxing enjoyable holiday.

Beautiful villa in amazing housing estate!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this villa was absolutely wonderful! It is located at the highest point of the estate, enjoying beautiful views over a golf course to the sea. The estate has only 9 villas, surrounded by unspoilt land, making it a very peaceful and special one.

Villa is modern, well equipped and pool area is very private. Services from owners, cleaning ladies and gardeners was absolutely spot on!

Albufeira town, several stunning beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and a golf course are located just a short drive from the villa.

We love to spend our holidays in the Vale de Parra / Gale area and we are looking forward returning to this or any other villa of this beautiful estate.
