About Isabel Martins
Welcome/Benvindo- We are Isabel and Paulo the owners of Villa Isabel, a friendly Portuguese couple and we have lived in London for 15 years.We have a good thorough insight into the area surrounding our villa and the closest towns, villages, beaches and all other amenities. We are very flexible with our guests requests and are always happy to help. As we live in London we can provide the villa keys to our guests (from London or close surrounding areas, meeting them if they wish) or otherwise by meeting our maid at the villa.
Isabel Martins purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Isabel Martins chose Parragil
In a quite residential area, in the village of Parragil our villa provides a peaceful and happy break, we love the green surroundings of the area and the feeling of being close, but far enough away from the crowded towns. The easy access to the motorway A22 and N270 can take you to all places of the beautiful seaside and countryside of the Algarve.
What makes this Villa unique
Our Villa offers you a very private location, where you can rest in complete privacy. In our pool the guests can relax with the most wonderful views. There are unique spots at the top of the villa, at the back, the luxurious pool has shower facilities, two terraces where you can relax.
Smoking, allowed outdoors only.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Very nice place in a great location for bikers
This is a nice 2 BR 2 Bath house with a well-stocked kitchen. We had a bit of an issue figuring out the stove. It would be nice if the owner would make up a little welcome sheet with instructions for things like the stove and the wifi password, trash pick-up, etc. We worked it out. Great biking in all directions and an easy drive to the coast if you want to play tourist.
Lovely villa with excellent pool
Stayed for 10 days in Villa Isabel. Lovely villa, the pool area is excellent. Loule is close by - a lovely town with good places to eat. Thank you Isabel & Paulo for letting us stay.

Very beautiful villa
We had a wonderful time at Villa Isabel. I have stayed in the Algarve many times but this was a real treat. Everything went well. If your thinking about booking it's worthwhile as the owner is genuine.
Many thanks Isabel.
Nice holiday house, would not call it a luxury villa.
Nice location, great pool and garden. Kitchen and bathroom were not very clean. Greasy cupboards , no cleaning products.
Would be nice to have some cold water in the fridge when you arrive, costs only 20 cents.a bottle.
Isabel was very kind and responded quick on our questions.
Our Villa is,always cleaned after every check out and deep cleaned every 3 months by a cleaning company which we are replacing for a new one. We leave minimal cleaning products for costumers use on their stay.
We are dealing with a local store to provide a basic welcome baskets for costumers on their arrival.

Pleasant Portugese Villa
This villa is perfect for visiting Portugal. There is plenty to visit within a half hour's drive. The beaches are great and the scenery is beautiful. The shops are about 20 minutes away and are well stocked.
The outside of the villa is it's best asset. The pool and upper gardens are particularly good. The views are amazing and we spent many hours reading by the pool and observing the views.
The general organisation could be better. The 'maid' didn't turn up when we arrived, so I had to telephone Isobel to get the key code, so ensure you have Isobel's number. The villa wasn't particularly clean, so we had to spend an hour cleaning the bathroom sinks and toilets and the kitchen as soon as we got in. It would have been nice to have a small welcome pack of water, milk, tea and juice (for the children). After several hours of travelling, the last thing you want to do is go shopping after you've walked through the door. My advice would be to visit the shops before you get to the villa.
The 'maid' never answered her phone when we telephoned her during the two week stay, but thankfully Isobel was able to answer our questions or sort out any problems. We got most of our local information from the visitors' book. A pack of information (like in many other villas) detailing the shops, best beaches, tourist attractions, medical facilities (just in case) etc. would have been very useful.
With a bit of organisation and planning, I could have graded this with 5 stars!
Thank you, for your review. The maid didn't turn up as she only clean the Villa or go there for any request related to the villa if our costumers need a maid to help them during their stay they need to request her private services, on extra payment, its not include on the price of the Villa, as we supplier the facilities necessary for the guests.
A "welcome basket" is not provided by us, but on request we can happily get one to our guests.
We have already in place, a guests guidebook on the Villa which can hopefully help our guests on many ways on their holidays.
