About Sylvia Hüls
We are a German couple with 14 years of rental experience in Germany. The Villa Amarela offered for rent, which is also used by us privately, is our first rental object abroad. For the guest service on site (check-in and check-out, cleaning, individual support), we have commissioned a professional company which enjoys our fullest confidence.
Sylvia Hüls purchased this Villa in 2016
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The home was wonderful for our family of 4. It was clean and beautiful with lots of space. Maria was so helpful and responsive whenever we had questions. We enjoyed the large play room filled with workout equipment, a pool table, ping pong table and foosball table. The swimming pool was a bit a chilly since it is not heated (we were there in early June). All of the beds are twin beds (pushed together to make a king if needed) this was not very comfortable so it would have been nice if there was a topper option to make it more comfortable for couples. But other than that all was perfect.
This villa was absolutely perfect for my stay. I held a Fitness Retreat at this location and brought 8 girls along with me. Between the time I booked this villa to the end of my stay I had constant contact with Sylvia and Maria to answer all of my questions with no more than 24 hours for a single response. The staff have been amazing help and have assisted me with all of my needs and more. When I arrived Maria explained everything in full detail and was available 24/7 for any questions I had.
The villa itself is absolutely stunning with very spacious and modern rooms. Each TV has Netflix which was perfect for the evening. It was also equipped with literally everything you can think of including in the kitchen. Extra towels were provided for the gym and more for the pool which was really good. It is located in a quite family area and has great places to go for a long walk.
It is definitely worth hiring a car as we had to travel to the local shop everyday for the groceries and the walk is too far. Also the beach is only 10 minutes away in a car journey but around 45 minutes to walk to.
There is nothing bad at all I could say about this villa and I will 100% be using this again for my next fitness retreat.
1 week stay
Beautiful villa in a quiet location. There were 6 adults and 2 children in our party, never felt cramped or that we were on top of each other. Very spacious, modern and clean. Bit far out to walk into Alvor, If you don’t hire a car download the Uber app as we found this to be the cheapest and most convenient way to travel. There is a small shop within a few minutes walk which has milk, fresh bread and a few groceries. Maria was very helpful and always on the other end of the phone if needed. Building work is going on next door and 3 mornings out of 7 they started between 7 and 7.30. Can get a bit noisy but not a lot you can do about it.
Beautiful, spacious villa with high standard furnishings
We had an excellent 10 day stay at the villa in August. Two families with 5 children overall ranging from 10-16. The villa was more than equipped to meet the needs of everyone and we had a fantastic time.
Jose and Maria were on hand to help us with enquiries and provide us with information about the local area- they were very attentive.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this villa just outside Alvor......What a place!!
We were greeted by jose on arrival to show us around the stunning villa and throughout our 2 week stay Jose and Maria were amazing. Anything we needed or wanted to know or how to get to places or how to book trips they were just a whatsapp message away from getting a prompt answer, or even come to the villa to advise.
The Villa itself has been done to a very high standard of luxury and has everything there you need. The gym and pool room was an added bonus. Each bedroom had aircon which was very much needed and also massive TV's which you could watch English channels also Netflix & Youtube.
The main living area consists of luxury leather sofas and a 60" tv, again getting the same channels as the bedrooms. There is also a Sonos system which is linked up to pretty much everyroom room, so great for playing your music around the house and outside.
The villa is located in a nice quiet area but is only a 5 min drive to Alvor and Portimao which is really handy for Restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. You can walk into Alvor in 20mins.
Overall this is probably the best villa we have stayed in and with the fantastic service that Jose and Maria provided it is a property we will be returning to
Villa Amarela is very impressive. Everything you see in the photographs is representative of the Villa and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is superb - There has clearly been a lot of work on the detail to ensure guests have everything they need and more! The location is in a lovely residential area close enough to enjoy everything Alvor has to offer but I would recommended a hire car to make things easy for any visits to the supermarket! Thankyou Sylvia for making everything simple with the booking, and thankyou Maria for your warm welcome and excellent service throughout our stay. We would definitely visit again
