One of the best holidays I have ever had the villa was beautiful. 8 adults shared this villa for a week. We have 2 recommendations the BBQ area was to far from everyone else. We also felt there should be a lock on the shared bathroom. We really don't want recommend this villa to anyone else as we want to be able to go back lol .

Villa Sousa, Sesmarias

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa in excellent condition. Really clean on arrival and was cleaned very efficiently twice per week during our stay. Very well equipped with two large fridge/freezers and plenty of cutlery, crockery and various sized pans and dishes. Constant hot water so no cold showers! Good location, within walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. The only drawback was the absence of air-conditioning in the living area so it was very uncomfortable sitting inside. The outside terrace and pool area were lovely and when we asked for the timer on the lights to be adjusted to come on earlier, it was very pleasant to eat dinner and relax in the evening. Any minor issues we had were dealt with very quickly and satisfactorily. Thank you.

Absolutely fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa had everything you need, good sized bedrooms and bathrooms with walk in showers, air conditioned bedrooms. Comfy living area. Big kitchen with every utensil you could want. Laundry room with washer, iron and ironing board and additional fridge freezer. Pool area great, shame BBQ wasnt nearer.

Couple of nice bars and nice restaurants, curry place was brilliant. Weather was nice and hot with a breeze. Ten minutes taxi to alburferia where theres a aldi and lidl. Spar is ten min walk.

Would recommend this villa big thumbs up 5 star!

A beautiful villa and very good management service

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 adults, one toddler and two 8 month old babies. The layout worked out quite well although a separate downstairs toilet would have been a bonus. The management staff went the extra mile to find out if there was a blender in the kitchen for us and also acted promptly when we queried the heating in the swimming pool. The bathrooms have all been upgraded since the photos were taken and were all lovely but there is now only one bath in the downstairs double bedroom - useful to know this if you have babies who need a bath. The beds were all quite firm, plentiful linen and towels were available including towels for the loungers outside. Plenty of equipment, crockery and cutlery in the kitchen with a large fridge and another in the utility room. Take your own dishwasher tablets to save buying a large box, but there are good supermarkets nearby (Oceana cheaper than Apolina) and a massive one called Continente in the shopping mall area on the main road just above Guia - plus an Aldi but not as much choice there. There were lots of toys and inflatables for the pool in a shed outside which was extremely helpful and useful. The steps down to the pool were a bit of a pain at the end of the day when taking things up and down to the outside table and it really would be a lot more sociable if the bbq was moved a bit nearer to the table area. We had to pass things in and out of the kitchen window and with it being at the back of the house, whoever was cooking didn't get to join in the fun. We kept the shutters closed most of the time to keep the house cool - and safe - and unfortunately this made the house a little dingy. The maids came twice a week which was unexpected and welcome. It was a good half hour's walk to the beach - felt longer when it was hot - but there are beautiful beaches all round with excellent beach bars for lunch or an evening meal. Never had a bad meal in Portugal yet. There is a Tapas Bar close by which is excellent and others within easy walking distance. Scoobies Pool bar is walkable too and good for crazy golf and other activities for the kids for a change. They will also run you home in a minibus if the kids are a bit tired. The weather was very kind to us - in fact a little too hot at 33 degrees one day - but all in all an excellent holiday. I would recommend this area - beautiful beaches, quiet not commercialised but with villas like this, great for a family holiday.

Beautiful villa,relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

There were nine of us in our party with ages ranging from 4-73.The villa with it's own swimmimg pool was perfect.Most of the rooms were ensuite & the kitchen had all the equipment you required.It was nice having the maid service too They also provided clean towels.Nearby beaches were sandy & clean but we spent a lot of the time round the pool as the outside area was clean & well equipped.

The welcome food pack was a pleasant surprise but meant we could relax a while before we went shopping.

A big thank you to Florence & the team who were really helpful & helped to make a good holiday even better.We will be back!
