Relaxing and well looked after

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this superb villa. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, and any additional requests are sorted immediately.

There is so much space that everyone can enjoy their time away without being on top of each other! It being cleaned every day also means that it's kept nice and tidy!

An amazing villa, highly worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review Laura. Your complementary week's stay with friends at 5 Quinta Verde was 1st prize in charity lottery. So 'well done' for buying your ticket and winning. Steve.

Superb villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Superb holiday, our fifth on the Algarve. We loved the villa, the pool, and the local beach restaurants. Property manager very helpful, and daily cleaning an unusual bonus in our experience. Special thanks to the air conditioning for coping with the extraordinary heat - even for high summer in Portugal. Would recommend without hesitation!

Amazing Holiday in an Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to this gorgeous villa with my family and small children. From the very beginning right through to the end everything was spot on!! The owner could not of been more helpful throughout the whole booking process and stay. The villa is in the perfect location close to shopping mall and restaurants. It is on a very peaceful estate and very private. Everything you could possibly need is in the villa and the pool is just gorgeous. The children were in there morning untill night!! Would defiantly recommend this villa and will 100% be returning !!! Great Holiday!!!
