Nice quiet peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in nice quiet peaceful surroundings, well maintained, very clean and tidy. The beaches are only a few minutes drive away with plenty of choice and numerous restaurants all very close by. Really enjoyed our stay.

Fantastic stay great base to explore the algarve

  • 4 of 5

My family and I read the previous reviews and were a little sceptical. In arriving at the villa we were pleasantly surprised. Is in a fantastic location with views over the fields to the sea beyond. It's just a short drive or leisurely stroll to the beach and it's immaculately clean.

Inside there seems to have been some improvements made, and for the record the internet connection was great.

The maids kept the place spotless, each of the rooms are spacious and there is a generous kitchen.

We would not hesitate to return to this villa and had a fantastic time, my son (3) is still missing the pool and says he misses his 'holiday home'.

In all a fantastic base to explore beyond, private and quite with great views and pool. ... what's not to love.

Totally recommend.

Nice villa

  • 4 of 5

Pros: large pool, spacious, nice view towards the coast, great service level (maids coming every other day to clean, gardeners likewise, pool cleaned every morning), effective air con, build in BBQ in the garden, dishwasher, washing machine, etc.

Cons: as a group of two families the WiFi started out fast then dropped to slow speed, despite a few requests this wasn't resolved. Furniture and fittings a little dated.

Overall, would recommend for families looking for a villa with a pool and with car(s) to get to a variety of beaches. Would recommend Marinha, Castelo and Gale beaches, boat trip from Benagil to see caves along the coast, Quad Ventura quad biking, zip wire from Alcoutim, and nearby A Grelha Do Ti-Manel restaurant.

Owner's Response: Dear Jonathan, Thank you for your kind review about our villa Miramar. About the WiFi, it was indeed very slowly in the month of August 2015. We contacted our network provider several times, but due to the overall high usage in the Albufeira area we it was not possible to solve this. We do have a solution for next season. On your remarks about the furniture: the owner agreed to replace some of the older pieces, however, the interior of the house is exactly as shown on the photos. We hope to welcome you again for a future vacation in villa Miramar or one of our other holiday homes.

Sehr schöne Villa

  • 5 of 5

Diese Villa ist einfach toll, zwar sind die Möbel etwas älter, aber gut in Schuss. Alles was man zum Leben im Urlaub braucht ist vorhanden, alles ist sauber, jeden 4. Tage kam das Reinigungs- Team. Täglich ein Mann der den Pool reinigt. Eigentümer sind super nette ältere Leute, die durch Ihre Freundlichkeit überzeugen. Sprachprobleme gibt es nicht wenn man etwas englisch kann. Fazit: Beide Daumen hoch.
