A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A really well furnished and decorated villa. Very spacious, comfortable and in a quiet location but no more than a 10 minute walk from Santa Barbera de Nexe.

We couldn't have wished for more and the views from the master bedroom balcony and from the pool overlooking a wide vista down to the coast are breathtaking.

We are planning to book again next year.

Thanks Mike and June for a great week

beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Mike and June said we would not be disappointed and we were not. The property is as attractive as the photos - well maintained and excellently equipped. The pool is beautiful and the whole house provided us with a very relaxing atmosphere. There were convenient local shops and a large supermarket and restaurants within easy driving distance. A car is essential, preferably a smaller one. We would definitely recommend this villa to a friend

Villa Vida Nova

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic villa and a real credit to Mike and June. This villa is clearly a private home that is used for occasional rental - and it feels just like home. Some villas are clearly there as a source of income for the owners and are tired and lacking investment and maintenance - but not this one.

The house was immaculate from top to bottom. The facilities were of a high standard and very well thought out.

A car is needed to enjoy visits to neighboring towns, villages and resorts but 2 supermarkets and plenty of good restaurants are within walking distance.

I would strongly recommend the villa.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vida Nova is beautifully appointed and is the perfect villa for a quiet family holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and had every amenity that you could wish for. The welcome pack was a lovely touch.

On the slightly negative side, whilst close to Faro, the villa felt a bit remote, so a car is essential, though the village of S. Barbara de Nexe has a supermarket and friendly restaurants.

Overall we had a very relaxing and peaceful holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Vida Nova.

Villa Vida Nova

  • 5 of 5

The villa was as described and was better than I expected. An excellent package of instructions, local info and manual was provided by the owners Mike and June Jackson. The villa was spotless with beds made and clean towels and linen provided. The pool was cleaned once a week by the villa managers Kevin and Wendy who were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive, the villa was also cleaned in the middle of our fortnight stay so absolutely no complaints about the villa or service. The villa itself is situated about a kilometer from the supermarket and the town itself but I thought that Santa Barbara turned out perfect for us as being more or less in the centre of a 20 mile radius of anywhere we wanted to go. As a family group with my wife Bunny and our two daughters 19 & 20 plus 2 friends it was a perfect situation, the villa and pool area was big enough to accommodate everybody. And with the aid of a hire car which is essential really we could drop the youngster at the beach and oldies to the castles etc. al within 20 - 30 minute drive for us it all amounted to the perfect holiday. I would recommend the Villa Vida Nova, thank you Mike and June and their staff.

Vida Nova

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely relaxing time at Villa Vida Nova.

As others have described, this is a beautifully appointed and very well equipped villa - probably the best equipped we have stayed in over the years.

Mike and June Jackson could not have been more helpful in ensuring we enjoyed ourselves during the week with lots of information provided.

Would hope to return one day.

Car: recommended

Santa Barbara de Nexe is a village in a charming rural location, 20 minutes from the airport. Magnificent sandy beaches stretch along the whole of the coast, with the Villa looking down onto the beaches of Quinta da Lago and Vale da Lobo. There are numerous golf courses in the area. The city of Faro is 15 minutes drive, and leisure facilities and a superb marina at Vilamoura 20 minutes away. Tennis and crazy golf are both a short ride from the Villa. The traditional village is peaceful, yet has useful shops and good restaurants. Almancil and the market town of Loule are close by, with many shops, bars and restaurants.
