Beautiful hilltop villa
We have just returned from two wonderful weeks staying in this amazing villa. Everything from the minute we arrived to an enthusiastic reception from the two little dogs, Lolita and Yoshi, to when we sadly had to leave, was perfect. The pictures do not do this villa and it's location justice - it truly is amazing. The outdoor kitchen was very well used as was the pool.
Ruben and Laura did so much to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable, providing valuable local knowledge and advice on places to visit. Lolita and Yoshi are adorable and we looked forward to their visits and their company. We have stayed in other villas but this is definitely one we will return to!
Wonderful Villa on the hill!
Quinta da Altura is a beautiful villa with wonderful views and with great owners Ruben and Laura to make your stay the best. We've had the opportunity to stay in the area a few times and I must say this villa had a wonderful homely feeling, with a fantastic large pool which was used to the full and a great outdoor kitchen/bbq area . We have 4 children 15, 11, 8 and 6 yr old and they loved it. Wifi for the older ones, dvd player for the younger ones but for all the Pool and the visits from Lolita and Yoshi the dogs ensured they loved it. The villa was situated with a short drive to Silves, Armacao de Pera and Carvoeiro so excellent location for getting out and about!
We loved it and hope to be back soon.
Our week long stay at the Hilltop Villa exceeded expectations in every possible way.
The Villa is excellent with amazing outside space, views, BBQ area and a lovely pool which is excellently maintained.
The location is perfect. Even though it is up a short dirt track and away from the hustle and bustle of busy algarve towns, it is within close proximity of everything you need to see at the algarve - whether it is the water parks for the kids, pristine beaches and coves or the lovely towns of Silves, Lagos or Monchique, amongst others.
Ruben and Laura are lovely and live only a short walk away. They are there on hand should you need any help or advice but otherwise leave you to enjoy your Holiday.
Only regret is not to have booked another week.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a lovely review! We are so pleased that our villa exceeded your expectations and we are glad that you all had a wonderful time.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Fabulous views and pool
Spacious villa with a fantastic pool and outside space. Hosts very helpful and friendly, providing advice and a generous welcome pack. A car is essential but the views from the villa are a delight, if it’s peace and quiet you are after this is the place.
Quiet, private location. Lovely lovely hosts.
Sat at Faro Airport wishing we were back on the balcony at Quinta de Altura.
Villa has everything you need, whether you want to stay there and relax by the fabulous pool or go out and about in a hire car. It’s peaceful enough to stay and chill and not too far from anything if you want to explore. The railway station is not far away and we caught a train to Lagos for the day (not expensive and an easy option to driving there). Ruben and Laura are warm, friendly and welcoming (as are the 2 little dogs Lolita and Yoshi). They were close by if we needed anything, checking to see if everything was ok and recommending places to go and visit. When the kettle stopped working, we had a new one waiting for us the next morning.
I would highly recommend Quinta de Altura and wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thank you Ruben and Laura!
Thank you for the lovely review of our villa. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back in the future.
Kind regards and a Happy 2019 x
