'The villa exceeded expectations and your notes were a real help on where to go.The pool, well the pool was just the icing on the cake ' Barry, Sue & family September 2009
We stayed at this villa at beginning of August 2016. It is an authentic traditional villa that has been modernised but still has kept it's character. The pool was large and ideal for our family with two children aged 8 and 11. You need a car to get around. It is close to the airport and all facilities. The beaches are all 10/15 minutes away. Supermarkets are in Almancil. There is a small Aldi for basic food and there is also a large Lidl in Loule where you can get all your food at reasonable prices and not too far away. In Loule there is also a market and fresh fish. The property was well maintained, and cleaned throughout our stay. They also have a barbecue if you do not want to go out. Films, books and videos are all provided at the villa. The children also did horseriding nearby. There are plenty of places to choose to eat out. Our favourite was a Tapas & Vino restaurant on the way to the beaches. I thoroughly recommend this villa and will most certaintly go again.
We fell in love with this property as it had so much character and was very private yet was very near a large supermarket and various very good restaurants . A car is necessary but driving proved quite easy and everywhere is well signposted. The villa gave us all we needed - a fantastic pool (this is not fenced but we had a three year old with us and it wasn't a problem), welcome shaded area outside the lounge (overlooking the rear garden and pool), very comfortable seating areas, more TV channels than we have ever had in a rented property, a very large master bedroom with huge bed and an en-suite with one of the best walk-in showers we have ever used (powerful and hot!). Being so near to the airport was a bonus (no overhead noise) as the holiday starts almost as soon as you land and it is easy travelling distance to other resorts. We loved it so much we have already booked for next year - and we've never done that before! Would definitely recommend this property.
Within a 15 minute drive are many of the beautiful beaches for which the Algarve is renowned, including Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura with its famous marina. Also located close by is the famous 'Ria Formosa' salt water nature reserve which teams with fascinating wildlife.
Faro airport, which is relatively small and easily manoeuvred, is 20 minutes away by car. Car hire is recommended and can be arranged very easily at the airport. Taxis are easily available and are reasonably priced.
Almancil is the closest village and is a 5 minute drive away. Loule ,the nearest large town is 15 mins by car and is worth a visit. It hosts a gypsy market every Saturday morning and is a typical Algarvian town, with cobbled backstreets and good local prices. The villa is located within the Golden Triangle with Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Dunas Douradas within a 15 min drive. The new Algarve Shopping centre can be reached in 15 minutes and Zoo marine in 20 minutes.
Lively Almancil is only 5 mins away. It has everything, supermarkets, butchers, cafes, post office, pharmacies, banks with lots of ATMs and of course a huge variety of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.
