Pleasant Stay

  • 5 of 5

I booked three villas for 10 days during Easter with this being one. The neighborhood is very peaceful with shops and restaurants a short walk away. Rooms were of a good size and the beds comfy enough. The kitchen is a little dated but fully equipped.

I would stay here again and would book through Villamoura Villas again.

Good location, spacious, lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

Good location, 10mins walk from Marina, 3 min walk to nearest cafes. supermarket and bars. Spacious, airy, great pool although could not put on pool lights or lights around pool at night. Best stocked kitchen ever. A couple of downsides, apart from 3 news channels there was no English speaking channels and we really missed some music and could have done with a couple of music channel on the TV. Some things like plug sockets and TV in bedroom didnt work. Overall though we had a lovely time. Would stay again.

Brilliant location for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We went to celebrate my special birthday and it was a total family affair with 3 generations. The accommodation was really clean & although a little tired we had everything we needed including air conditioning. We were also able to access free Internet via Pinhal Golf at the back of the property - we only discovered on the last few days.

Paulo in the office had been really helpful as my daughter wanted to arrange for a photographer giving really good advice. The pool was beautiful and used everyday.

Only advice I would give is if you have children under 5 I would ensure you have a buggy for them as it is a good 10 - 15minute walk to the marina and beyond.

We had two beautiful meals at Cataplana in the square below the Thai & Indian restaurant and it was really safe place for our grandsons to be able to play while we could keep an eye on them.. Also staff were excellent bring their meal at the same time as starters.

My husband &I visit Vilamoura on a regular basis to play golf but usually stay in hotels. We will definitely be going back to Villa Branca as a family as we had a wonderful week

april showers didn't stop play.

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed was in this villa, it's a shame the weather was mixed. Plenty of space to either do your own thing or be together. The cleaner made several appearances during our time there and kept things ship shape. Towels are provided but if you plan to use the pool I would suggest you bring some extra with you as there was one large and small each although these were changed regularly. The roof terrace was a lovely surprise but could do with a sun lounger up there take the most of the sun trap. Fab views and you can see the sea.

Beware if you do have the tv on the only English speaking channels were the news !

Friendly people in the estate made you feel like a local and not just a visitor

Nice walk to the harbour or to the front. There are also couple of friendly restaurants near the spar.

There is a taxi rank near the harbour it's around 30 euros for 6 seater to albufera or 40 to faro old town both a lovely day out there is a shopping mall at faro for the desperate! Water based activities available at the harbour. Plenty of places to eat and drink with lively views.

We were a family of 6 2 grandparents 2 teenagers 2 adults.

Villa review

  • 5 of 5

I rented this villa for a week with my family of 5 adults and 3 children,we had a great time.We had three young children with us and they had great fun in the pool the property was very secure and gated so ideal for children,we never had to take a taxi for the week as its less than 10min walk to the Marina which was ideal.There are many restaurants to choose from at the Marina .We were 5min walk from a large Spar supermarket which stocked with everything.Housekeeping came in everyday and we always had fresh towels.The villa was lovely inside and out with 3 bathrooms one ensuite and a small toilet off the kitchen.There was a big waterpark only a short taxi ride away and a park that had loads of bouncy castles and slides for the kids by the beach and close to McDonalds so ideal for kids!I would highly recommend this villa.
