Fantastic villa, 6 of us stayed. 4 children and ourselves. More than enough space for us to live in for 10 nights. Pool area fantastic. Felt safe and secure. Lovely areas to chill in the shade. Well equipped kitchen but we used the bbq more.
I’d like to add the villa is very clean. Will definitely return
Thank you for your review
We are happy you liked your visit and hope that you will return
Perfect for our family
We had no problems with the house. The house was lovely, kitchen was well equipped. The pool was great, we liked it that it was deep. If you rent a car it is easy to reach sightseeings, waterparks only 30 minutes drive away. Plenty of toys for kids (pooltoys, beach toys, games, TV games, DVD, comic books and other books in english, that was a lovely suprise). Our kids (5 and 6 years old) said that it was the best house and vacation we have had so far😊.
I think the review says it all many thanks we hope you return
Lovely villa. Easy check-in.
We had a lovely family stay at Marks villa. Communication with him was great. Self check-in worked well.
We had a rental car to explore the area which I'd recommend.
Enjoyed a couple of the restaurants in Luz for dinner.
Hope to return for another stay.
All you needed, good location, loads of places to visit, fab eating places. Owner kept us informed of all we needed to know. Would definitely recommend and will definitely re-book.
I read all the reviews before booking, and was a little wary due to the bad ones....you really should ignore them!!!
The villa was beautiful, in a peaceful, rural location. Car hire is probably a good idea but we didn’t hire one and found the local bus service excellent. The fare is a flat €1.60 wherever you go on the route and a day rider for €3.60 lets you hop on and off all day & night. Taxis are also reliable and reasonably cheap.
The villa itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay - we had 4 adults, a teenager and an 11 year old and it always felt spacious. The outside areas are fantastic too - with the added bonus of the pool which was well used.
If you love the beach, Burgaus is a must and has a fab beach bar restaurant on the front. Praia da Luz was lovely with nice places to eat - but if you want something a bit more lively, Lagos had it all.
We had an extremely small, insignificant issue - which was resolved immediately by Mark and the caretaker (who was lovely and very friendly). There are comments by other reviewers about the drains,but we had no problems at all!
To sum it up, this villa was fantastic .... thank you Mark for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
The most local beach Is Praia da Luz which is approximately 1.5km away but there are lots of others within five minutes drive away including Porto Mos, Praia Dona Ana and a few more minutes the main Lagos beach of Meia Praia. We also visit a number of other beaches within 15 minutes, Burgau and Salema. The West Coast surfing beaches are 25-30 mins drive away.
The nearest airport is Faro and is approx 80 km away and takes 50 minutes to arrive at the villa.
Praia Da Luz 1.5 km, Lagos 3km,Portimao 30km, The mountains of Monchique are about a forty minute drive away.
Zoo Marine where you can swim with the dolphins and waterparks are approximately 30 minutes away by car.
Both Praia da Luz and Lagos have Supermarkets and Chemists, Banks, Bars and numerous restaurants.
