Very spacious, clean, well presented villa & gardens

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at this lovely villa for 2 weeks towards the end of August. On arrival we were met by the housekeeper Suzel who showed us around and told us she was always available if we needed her. The garden is well kept and the pool is very clean and well maintained. The villa itself is very spacious and well laid out and as a result there was always space to find a quiet spot if you wanted one. Although tucked away there are 3 local restaurants easily accessible, one is walkable and the other 2 within a 5 minute drive. The harbour town of Alvor is about 15 minutes away by car and has some lovely bars and restaurants. Portimao is a similar distance and also has bars and restaurants as well as some very expensive boats in the harbour. Both towns have long, beautiful sandy beaches. The nearest large supermarket was about 10 minutes away and was always well stocked. There is a small local shop a couple of minutes away for basic needs. We made regular use of the barbeque at the villa and the shaded eating area was a popular spot for all meal times. The 'centre' of our holiday though was the pool. With temperatures in the mid 30'sC and clear blue sky a regular dip was a must. Our 7 year old grandson was never out of it and by the end had discarded his arm bands and swimming unaided. Our 6 week old grandson has experienced his first 'swim' and after the initial cold water shock he loved his cooling dips in the pool. Overall we had a fantastic family holiday at the villa and we have created lots of memories to look back on. Many thanks to Bob & Carol for lending us their lovely villa.

A beautiful, spacious, well maintained villa

  • 5 of 5

We received a very warm welcome from the lady who manages the property, she couldn't have been more helpful. The villa is spacious and luxurious and well equipped with all needed for a very enjoyable holiday. The outside area is well designed and attractive with generous seating areas and the pool is delightful and was thoroughly enjoyed on a daily basis by all of our party. There is a lovely restaurant a short stroll from the villa (Amadeus) where we were made very welcome and were served delicious food. The owner, Bob, has been great at communicating with us and provided very good service. If it wasn't already booked we would definitely visit Villa Mimosa again.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mimosa gets 5 out of 5 for us as it has everything you need and more both inside and out. Lots of space and the main bedroom en-suite is amazing, best shower ever!

Very well stocked kitchen, with all the pots,pans crockery etc you could need and all in excellent condition. Bedroom very comfortable and the whole villa was extremely clean and well maintained.

All our time was spent outside, enjoying the pool area with a lovely spacious terrace and beautifully kept gardens.

You will not be disappointed staying here, we loved it and would definitely recommend it.
