We had a great stay here. The villa and pool were fantastic and the way it is set up makes it great for families with children.The villa is set in a very peaceful area and not at all overlooked. It is also well located and the majority of places we visited were only a short drive away. Silves itself was also very pleasent and well worth a look around there are also a number of good restaurants. Susie was really helpful and very thoughtful. We had everything we needed for a great holiday many thanks we definately recomend this place.
Loved the villa, loved the area. Susie made everything so easy and straightforward.
My wife and I have stayed at this villa on three occasions and next year (2017) will make it 4 times !! Over the years, we have also rented a number of other properties and this villa (together with one in Scottsdale) are our joint favourites.
We wanted somewhere away from the crowds where we could just relax (as close to a 'home from home' environment as possible) and do nothing but relax, sit by the pool, eat, drink and sleep !! There are lots of things to occupy the more energetic, but for us this is our 'tranquility holiday'.
It's in a very quiet location (but not remote), has a great pool with a great view, is very close (by car) to the shops, supermarkets and restaurants in Silves and not far from the coast. Susie (the owner) is very quick in responding to texts and dealing with any 'issues'. We have only ever had one problem - when the water supply just stopped - but as Susie reassured us, this was a water main problem in a nearby lane and would soon be resolved.
Mobile reception (for those renters who find this important) is excellent as is the wifi signal. The air-con system is very effective and whilst there are many places to visit in the area, as we've ticked those boxes on previous bookings, we spend most of our time at the villa.
It is a very spacious villa for 2 people but still cosy and if you are looking for a 'pool holiday' - this is place to rent !
Very comfortable and well equipped villa. It really was a home from home. The neighbours are friendly and Sue couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant and relaxing. One of our best holidays ever!
Everything we ask for was arranged and we feel really welcome. We were with 3 adults and 2 kids and each of us had a smile by arriving and leaving. Before we arrived everything was successfully corresponded by email with Susie and all extras we ask for wasn't a problem for her. The villa was great and having al the facilities we need. No other disturbing people nearby ,only a fev dogs. the villa was clean and big enough and the cleaning lady came over a few times even as the pool boy did. The swimming pool offers a great pleasure. We rented a car, which Susie arranged for us. So we did not have to think about anything. All we can tell is that we were having a wonderful time with each other, thanks to Susie and her help en kindness. We hope that everybody who is coming up likes the place as we did.
We stayed in Villa Paradyske at Easter time with two children aged 11 adn 9. The weather was very changeable but nevertheless we had a great time. Susie was extremely helpful - responding to all my many emails prior to arrival and advising us to bring clothes for every season! The villa was comfortable, clean and well equipped although chilly - which, if the weather had been hot, would have been very welcome. The pool was spotless and very inviting.
It is in a perfect location, peaceful and with beautiful views and yet only a few minutes from the elegant and historic Silves.
Susie helped us out with lots of suggestions of places to visit and things to do so we enjoyed some fabulous trips and great restaurants.
I would certainly recommend the villa for those looking for a more rural location but close to all that the Algarve has to offer.
