Hidden Algarve treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderful week at Casa Tucci for the Easter holiday. The villa is just beautiful and more than we could have hoped for with every possible need met. It was lovely to meet Sandra who couldn't have been more helpful. We have visited the Algarve many times and this is by far our favourite place now. We will be back!

Fabulous Villa - Fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Villa Tucci this February, escaping from the terrible UK weather. The villa looks amazing on the website and though it may be hard to believe, in reality it is even more beautiful. We were thrilled with it. All rooms are huge and very well set up, everything you could possibly want is there, including wifi.

The property was immaculate, and there was cleaning included mid-week for us.

On our arrival, the owner was waiting, she gave us a guided tour and answered all our questions. There was also a range of basic groceries waiting for us too, after a long journey they were extremely well received by us all.

Even though it was very early in the season, the youngsters got good use out of the pool and we even managed to have a BBQ!

The location of the villa was perfect for us, a short drive to Villamoura, the golf courses and the beaches.

An outstanding feature of this Villa was the manager Sandra, she responded quickly to any messages, (we managed to lock our stuff in the safe without setting a code and on leaving left something precious behind!!) She was also enormously helpful when it came to organising payment for the toll roads. I rarely feel I want to return to a place, I always feel there are so many places in the world to see, but this is somewhere I really hope to return to.

Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found this villa on owners direct. Great value for the size and quality of the villa. Sandra was very helpful before and during our stay. Having stayed in villas before some managers/owners don't seem overly interested in how your holiday is going. Sandra was completely the opposite. Very friendly and helpful and happy to help as and when she can. We were unlucky to have heavy rain the 2nd day in. With 2 children aged 2 and 3 we needed somewhere to go. Sandra phoned her friends for advice and called back under an hour later with some options which certainly helped us out!

The villa was spacious especially the 4 bedrooms. One on ground floor and 3 upstairs. Large living area. Everywhere was spotless, nicely designed and well thought out for large families. Garden was quiet and child friendly. Pool was lovely and a very pleasant temperature.

The area around the villa is a traditional Portuguese village. I would say a car is definitely needed to get around the local areas.

Highly recommend trips to Vilamoura marina for dinner and clean beaches. Zoomarine and Slide and Splash definitely worth a visit. Plenty of options for golf nearby too.

We hope to return to this villa as probably the best we have stayed in.

Algarve villa holiday PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5

I have to start this review by saying that 5 stars really isn't enough!!!!!

We stayed at Casa Tucci at the end of August 2013 for two weeks. We have been on villa holidays for the last 7 to 8 years and can say without hesitation that Casa Tucci is by far the very best we have stayed in.

As mentioned by others, from the very first enquiry to the day we departed back to the UK we were extremely well looked after by Sandra. Just as an example, because we didn't intend to hire a car during our stay, we asked Sandra if she could organise our transfer from Albufeira train station to the villa. Sandra did better and was there herself with a friend to drive the eight of us to the villa where she spent as much time as we wanted showing us all the facilities and making sure we had contact numbers etc should we have further questions or problems.

The villa is superb. Kitchen is huge with all imaginable appliances and equipment including a very big 'American style' fridge freezer. All the bedrooms are immaculately appointed. The beds are very comfortable, lots of wardrobe space with aircon in all. Bathrooms very clean and modern. Good sized pool. The real bonus was in the 'lower ground floor' where there is a 'gym' and a full size pool table plus a huge TV + Playstation.

We arrived late on Saturday night and Sandra offered to organise some takeaway food from her father-in-law's local restaurant. We declined as we were all tired but there was a welcome pack of ham, cheese, bread, eggs etc should we need something.

Most of our holiday was spent at the villa but when we wanted to go out, we found taxis were reliable and quite cheap. Several of us also walked into the village to top up our supplies or we all walked there a few times to a local bar for a drink or a meal at night. (30 minute very casual walk).

At the end of our stay, Sandra and her young daughter came round to say goodbye.A very sad occasion as none of us wanted to leave but we promised Sandra we would definitely see her again in the future.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Booking was very easy, emails replied to promptly.

Arrived at the property to a welcome pack, Sandra very knowledgeable & helpful.

The villa is even better in real life than the photos.

Great attention to detail in the design, lots of extras included (Nespresso coffee machine with coffee was included, huge bowl of fresh oranges, beer, cheese, ham, bread, butter, washing up liquid, washing machine liquids etc etc)

We didn?t do much walking around the local area, we were happy to spend the nights in, as we have a baby(travel cot, high chair, stair gates, paddling pool, pool toys all provided) as the spacious kitchen was fantastic.

Good for access to multiple locations by car

Hope to return again, and again, and again??..

Perfect villa - Perfect time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for one week with 4 persons and two little kids in May 2012. The villa has a very tasteful interior design and all the staff we needed. There even was a little swimming pool and toys for our kids. Sandra gave us a warm welcome and showed us the house. We have booked many houses (also in the Algarve) but this was by far the best.
