Guestbook comments from the manager

We all had a great time, the villa was wonderful, our son was practically



never out of the pool! It was the perfect base, we travelled to Sagres and



Cabo De Sao Vicente on one trip then to Monchique and Foia another, not to



mention all the beach trips! We will definately recommend villa to others.

Thanks very much for all your assistance, it has been a seamless and stress

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

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.

A perfect location for a relaxing holiday......

  • 4 of 5

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 !

We had a great stay in villa paradyske.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Rural and tranquil

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Louise, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review :) I fully take on board your comment about the villa being a bit chilly and have now purchased extra duvets and a couple of extra radiators for the winter months. We have had several guests stay during Winter over the past couple of years and it's not been a problem before, hence I was a little unprepared for the PARTICULARLY cold weather we had when you were here. The air con heating is working fine and it does warm the villa very nicely, but it takes a little time to warm up so the extra radiators will take the chill off until the air con heating kicks in. Apart from that, I'm glad everything else was to your satisfaction and that you and your family had an enjoyable holiday, despite the unseasonal bad weather. The Algarve is a gem of interesting places to explore which means there is plenty to do during periods of inclement weather. Luckily over here, rainy days usually give some periods of sunshine in between. I'm glad you found my "TO DO" list helpful and hope you will come again soon. Discounted prices always offered to returning guests :) Best wishes, Susie

The best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time spending summer vacation here.

The villa is absolutely perfect, it has all you wish for and more. Well equipped, clean and modern.

Very happy about the location of it as well. It has such a nice view and I like the fact that we did not have to be a part of "tourist mania" as this neighborhood consists of locals only. The closest city is also a calm and quiet place with several sights worth checking out.

We did try out some of Susie`s recommendations and I`m glad we did! We found great restaurants, views and attractions there.

Overall we experienced great service and communication and I will highly recommend this place to others.

Hope to go back again someday!
