Villa Turquoise is the perfect vacation house!
We were a party of 4; two couples. We chose Alexandre's house in Portimao on the Prainha Beach in Portugal's Algarve because of location and the "play toys" available. You literally fall down the hill from his house into the beautiful Prainha Beach, with all of its rock outcroppings and wonderful beachside restaurants. Alexandre's house had everything one could need, especially the outdoor toys, such as bikes, SUP board, kayaks, etc.
Alexandre was the most pleasant, affable host. He gave us walking and hiking tips, as well as restaurant favorites. He also gave us some great ideas for further exploration of the Algarve coast.
In June, Portugal is just beautiful. Vineyards and olive trees are greening, and it's not too touristy or crowded. The downside was the water temperature was a bit chilly for swimming, but certainly not for long walks along empty expanses of beautiful shoreline.
We hated to leave, but we had plans to explore Lisbon and the Duoro River, so we bid adieu to the lovely Villa Turquoise and the Algarve. Obrigada Alexandre!
Thank you very much for your nice review.
So happy that you enjoyed all the toys ( bikes, kayak, SUP ) at the beach house itself and/ or in my Nautic club at Ria do Alvor ( Natural park at 5 m by car or 10 by bike ) or maybe part of it as we have even more ( golf club, Tenis racket.....) .
This is the spirit of " villa turquoise " having fun doing , if you wish , many activities depending the conditions itself of the weather, sea....
So glad that you could enjoy it.
A truly amazing experience
I stayed at the villa with my 5 children for 1 week, it was bliss!! Firstly the location , steps from the most beautiful beach, supermarket less than. 2 minutes away, cliff top pool with restaurant 5 minutes stroll , fabulous restaurants (caniço amazing) on the beach and only €4 taxi to alvor, no need for a car!
This was my first time booking a villa over the internet and I was nervous and mistrusting to say the least but Alexandre the owner was so kind and accommodating to us and put me at ease. Everything was available for us, bikes for the big and small kids, wifi, tv in every language, DVDs to suit everyone, even a couple of bottles of wine in the fridge!
The photos don't do this villa justice , it's more luxurious than it looks, we were stunned when we walked inside! The bedrooms are arranged for privacy, 3 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen , a real home from home!
I have recommended the villa turquoise to all my friends & family and have already booked for next year
Thank you Alexandre, Jeanette

Great Holidays in Family. Full of Activities.
We spent a fantastic family/friends holidays at Villa Turquoise.
2 minutes from lovely beaches, swimming pool, tennis courts and golf course.
The Owner Alexandre left us bikes, which were very useful so as to enjoy the surroundings without a Car.
He also let us use his Stand up Paddle, Kayaks and Windsurf at his Yacht Club at the beautiful Ria do Alvor (10 minutes away).
Alexandre was always available to help us in anything and provided us with lots of information; which made our holidays even better.
The Villa is very well equipped, with barbecue, TV in the living room, flat screen in the suite, many coffee machines and air conditioner in every part of the house.
Everything worked well.
The Villa has 3 patios, so there were no space problems for 9 people.
Nice beds, bedsheets and towels.
What we loved the most: to be able to have autonomy for all of us, specially the Kids, and have a lot of activities to choose from. We spent a week and did a different thing every day.
We definitely recommend this Villa and want to thank the owner for his availability.
We received the security deposit 3 days after our departure.
We had a really good time in the house!there was a lot of space for all of us (10 people) it was also nice that we could use the kayaks and stand up paddels for free. the beach is nearby what is just perfect. we had a great week!
