Relaxation Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely gorgeous. It has all the amenities needed and is both private and secure. Communication with the owner throughout the booking was excellent. The villa is situated on a golf resort. The only downside is it is not possible to walk to restaurants in nearby Salema etc but we knew this before we confirmed bookings. A lovely villa and lovely holiday

Great villa, good location, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa was superb. Better than advertised. Everything you need. High quality. Location good but you do need a car. Quite windy so in hindsight would’ve heated the pool. The only (very small) thing missing was a Bluetooth speaker for music. The Amado surf school is highly recommended as is a round on the golf course which is right on your doorstep. Several little beach villages nearby with restaurants and shops, all 15-20 min drives, Salema beach about 5 mins. Cabanas beach restaurant a favourite of ours. The owner David was very nice, always contactable, relaxed and easy to deal with and also gave us some great tips! (Surf school at Amado beach). No hesitation in recommending this villa. Great for relaxing by the pool or beach or enjoying activities like golf, surfing, tennis etc. Also fun watching Portugal in the WC with the staff in the golf club restaurant (Spike Bar), great guys. Enjoyable holiday.

Amazing villa and holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location with spa, restaurant and bar on site. Close to the beach, really nice local restaurants and shops. We recommend the peri-peri chicken!

The villa was fantastic, really modern and all on 1 level. The games room was great for our teenage kids. It had a pool table, foosball table, tv and beanbags.

We plan to return next year!

Spacious, clean, well appointed, nice pools

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, quiet at night, close by to local amenities, there was plenty to do in the local area. The actual apartment was lovely and spacious, it was also very clean. The pool set up is excellent as they have a separate pool for the kids. The owner was easy to deal with and helpful in regard to any questions we had. All in all a great stay, the golf was fantastic!

Amazing Villa, Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned home from my stay with my family and had a amazing time, This villa was perfect for us as I was with my elderly parents and this place is all on one level. The pictures really don't do this place justice, It exceded our expectations in every way. This was a nice surprise for us as I am often disappointed when I compare places I've stayed to the online photos.

There was a lovely terrace will a small pool which is ideal for children or just getting your feet wet!

Golf course was excellent, one of the best courses I've played in Portugal and only a short walk from the villa. The villa was also very quite and felt very private.

All in we had a very relaxing time and will be returning again soon!
