Guestbook comments from the manager

BEAUTIFUL VILLA WITH A BIG, CLEAN POOL A NICE GARDEN. IT`S ALSO A VERY QUIET NEIGHBOURHOOD, AND LOVELY TO SIT AND RELAX.



WE WERE HERE WITH OUR CHILD OF 17 MONTH,S AND EVERYTHING WAS HERE WHAT ASKED FOR (COT AND HIGH CHAIR).

A WELCOME PACK WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE , BUT WAS NOT REALLY A PROBLEM FOR US BECAUSE WE ARRIVED WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, AND WE COULD DIRECTLY GO TO A SHOP.



(WE HAVE LISTENED TO OUR CLIENTS, AND NOW THE VILLA WILL HAVE AN WELCOME PACK WITH WATER, MILK, BISCUITS, SUGAR, ETC)...



ALBUFEIRA IS A NICE TOWN WITH GOOD RESTAURANTS AND NICE SHOPS. WE COULD RECOMMEND RESTAUTANT " A RUINA" BESIDES ALBUFEIRA FISHERMAN’S BEACH WHERE YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL VIEW TO THE BEACH AND THE SEA.



WE WENT TO SAGRES (CABO SAO VICENTE), PORTIMAO, VILAMOURA (NICE PARK) AND ZOO MARINE IN GUIA, IT WAS ALL WORTH TO GO AND SEE

HOPEFULLY WE CAN COME BACK IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS. WE WISH ENJOY A VERY NICE STAY IN VILLA JULIA AND ALBUFEIRA.

A wonderfully sunny family retreat

  • 4 of 5

The property exceeded my expectations from the extensive grounds, well stocked kitchen to the comfortable beds. The star attraction though must be the pool.

The maid service part way through the week to change towels was an unexpected bonus and the pool staff were on hand to keep on top of things during the week.

The real highlight of the property is its seclusion, ideal for a private family holiday and with the benefit of a 5 - 7 minute drive to Albufeira Old Town and the same to the Marina.

A wonderful week spent here and a property which I intend returning to again and again.

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Booked a quick week away for last minute sun. It turned out to be so much more. The villa was perfect, perfect get away location, yet easy to get everywhere, perfect pool and land area. Although the villa itself is a little dated or you could just say rustic, it was wonderfully clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. As the patio and pool area was so well serviced we only used the actual villa for cooking and sleeping.

Our recommendation is that we have done something we have never done before - we have rebooked for the same time next year - can't get a better recommendation than that.

Many thanks Carlos for making everything so easy.

A little dated but a great villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Julia was a great base for our holiday. Carlos is lovely and very easy to deal with but you might have to forgive his tendency to CAPS lock in his mails.

The villa itself is a little dated with a CRT TV, some older furnishings, etc but to be honest when you are on holiday the last think you should want to do is watch TV and while some fixtures were old, everything was clean and worked perfectly. The pool caretaker and cleaner both did a great job while being almost invisible.

The pool is perfect for a family. There is plenty of room for kids while the deeper section is nice too. The garden is full of flowers and the fruit trees are a nice addition too.

This was not our fist trip to the area and we tend to visit quite a few attractions so I knew this villa would suit us with or car rental. The old town area of Albufeira, the marina and several lovely beaches are easy to drive to, as are the FEISA sand sculpture competition, Zoomarine and the Algarve shopping mall. Most places are less than 10 minutes away and very easy to find even without a sat nav and the Portuguese people are genuine and friendly if you ever need their help.

Would I recommend it to a friend.. in a heartbeat.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by the photos of this villa which drew me in to start off with. once you get there it is so much better than the pictures. the rooms are a lot bigger than expected. it is about a 15 minute drive to the shopping centre and 15 minute drive in the opposite direction for the old town and albufeira strip.

We couldn't thank Carlos enough. The TV broke on our 2nd Day but we sent Carlos a message to advise him of the issue and low and behold we had a new one that evening.

I Highly Recommend this villa and i can't wait to go back.

Fantastic value

  • 4 of 5

The girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at Villa Julia. The Garden and pool area I would rate 9 out of 10, stunning! House itself is well maintained and very spacious, although remote it's only a 15 euro taxi from Hugo into town (bit more expensive than a taxi but a taxi would never find it) and 10 euro back by taxi so it's well worth picking this villa over anywhere in town as you'd never get this kind of property or peace and quiet anywhere closer..

Carlos was on call with any questions or problems so couldn't rate him high enough, we had a great holiday eating out and partying in the night followed by relaxing in this beautiful villa in the day. If I had the chance id go back tomorrow! Can't wait to stay there/in one of Carlos's villas again!

Regards,

Vincent.

Lovely Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival at Villa Julia, we were very pleased with the presentation of the overall Villa. Although this is a little more remote than I had believed, therefore would definately reccommend hiring a car.

There is a small restuarant at the end of the road where the villa is located but to reach and real shops/bars and resturants you will need a vehicle to get to these.

We actually used the Transfer company whom were very responsive, although do cost a more than a normal taxi (approx 30 euros round trip to supermarket/beach and Old Town). The local supermarket is 'Fantastic' located in the shopping centre only a 10 minute drive away, the selection here is vast, fresh Meat and fish counter, really had all you could think of. The beach/Old town is approximately 15 mins away by car, we did not travel to the strip as from past experience a little soleless.

The Villa internally is very clean and well maintained, traditional in decor and the bathroom between Bed 2 - 3 could do with some TLC. Our only really gripe was the beds, they are VERY hard and my husband and I found very uncomfortable, if honest. The Villa remains cool throughout the day which was great, although fans are provided.

The outside area is fantastic, the pool clean and a good depth, the sunbeds comfortable and the garden great for the kids. The orange tree gave us fresh juice daily and lemons were the biggest we have seen. The bbq was a little small given the Villa occupancy and rather well used, again could be updated to ensure good use.

Overall we have a really lovely week, we spent 80% of our time at the villa and it suited our every need but would have been 5 stars if nearer to Albuferia itself.

Happy Holidays
