Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a fantastic short break at Villa Neela. The Villa was absolutely delightful - spacious, clean, beatifully decorated and had everything you could want for - luxury to the extreme. Jose the agent was extremely helpful and gave us information on the local area. We walked to Julias beach every day and ate at the retaurants there two nights and at a local traditional restaurant - Murfoso 1. The Villa is in a beautiful location - easy access from the airport and close to some beautiful places - we didn't hire a car but would recommend one for longer stays to take advantage of the surrounding area. It was everything we hoped for and more - would loved to have stayed longer and hope to return soon!

Relaxing stay at this lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday and the Villa suited all of our needs. Lovely villa and pool in a quiet location and a short drive to beaches and Vale de lobo. Very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms excellent size and plenty of wardrobe space. I have already recommended this beautiful villa to friends! We had some great meals out including Jose the management agents restaurant Menta Pimenta, Casa da Campo, Alambique and Julia's on the beach. Jose was lovely and very helpful, good experience all round. Highly recommend!

Fantastic villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at villa neela for 10 days and what a great villa it is. Everything we needed, great space in side and out, good size pool and great location. I come out every year but feel that I have found the perfect villa to take my family when we return.

Thanks for letting us stay at your villa!!!

Gorgeous villa in a superb location ⭐️

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a brilliant two weeks staying at the Villa Neela this August. Our booking process was delightful with Mr and Mrs Sharma and the greeting and help from the Villa Manager Jose was fantastic whilst we were there. Such a brilliant location between Quinta do Lago and Val de Lobo with three beaches within 10 minutes drive. The villa is really spacious and the pool was a great temperature without heating it, perfect size for children yet deep enough for adult dives! The villa has everything you need including wifi and a secure gated surrounding for peace of mind, even though the Villas Alvas is a lovely and safe urbanisation. Highly recommend visiting Jose's Menta Pimenta restaurant nearby, it's fantastic. But our favourite restaurant of the entire holiday was Parrilla Nturel in nearby Almancil, there are so many great places with a few miles radius. Must have day trips are; Zoo Marine to swim with the Dolphins, Aqua watermark, the Quinta do Lago lake for brilliant water sports and sliders/cocktails at the Shack, Breeze Beach Club at Val de Lobo and Izzy's beach bar for lots of fun on a Sundat afternoon. Can't recommend highly enough, this villa is perfect for 1/2 families or a group of adults who want to be surrounded by lots of things to do and see.
