Just returned from a week in Villa Maria, there were 8 of us staying 6 adults and 2 children. The villa is amazing, 5* without doubt. All the rooms are spacious with comfy beds and lots of storage space, ensuite a and bathrooms also well equipped and lovely powerful showers.
Nice living space, great kitchen and BBQ area well placed with easy access to the kitchen area. Very secure with electronic shutters on all windows and electronic gate on entrance. Pool area is also fabulous, we paid the extra for pool heating which was nice to have but not essential.
Our contact was extremely helpful, spoke great English and helped us with our enquiries, even after we left when I lost my phone she helped us get hold of the taxi to retrieve it, how lucky for me!
The villa feels remote enough to be quiet and peaceful in the day but is within walking distance of supermarket, restaurants and bars.
All in all a fabulous week and we are already talking about returning next year.

my fiance and I stayed here for a week in Mid-March and although this villa is geared towards larger groups we fell in love with the place so booked for just the two of us! villa is very comfortable and has all you need for your stay. at full occupancy this villa would still allow enough space & the pool and outside seating is great! 5 minutes walk to local shops, restaurants and cafes and a further 5/10 minute walk to two different beaches plus more facilities. a great village to visit with good connections to either old town albufeira and vilamoura. we were lucky enough to have a week of beautiful sunshine and are looking to return with our family again next march! a great winter get away. p.s on finding the property it is slightly tucked away so head towards farmers field and villa is on your left at the end of close.

We were a group of 7 ranging from 19 - 60's and from the moment we arrived we were all thrilled to find the villa is like the photos! There has been no expense spared on the finish, furnishing and contents of the property. All the bedrooms were spacious with lots of wardrobe space, beds super comfy and the bedding was fresh and new. The facilities within the house were wonderful with a large Sky TV, seating area, the kitchen is well equipped. We spent most of our time lounging around the pool which is a good size and ideal for families, we paid extra for heating which I would recommend in the colder months- Although we can't complain the weather was lovely and we made good use of the pool and lovely BBQ area which is perfect for Al Fresco dining! The housekeeper and manager are wondering and on hand should you need anything, they kindly allowed us to check in and out slightly outside of the normal times due to our transfers which they also arranged. Its a 5 minute walk to the main road where you will fine a supermarket, plenty of cafes and a market with a lovely butchers which we purchased all our BBQ meat- we fed 7 for around £25 so very reasonably priced! If you stroll a little further down the hill you reach the cove where you will find the beach and some lovely fresh fish restaurants. We ate out most days and would get a taxi from the rank by the supermarket approx. 7 euros to the new strip where you will find restaurants and bars- it's the lively part of town, or 10 euros will take you to the old town which has a bit more culture! We will be returning for definite!

“Simply put: Amazing Villa, Amazing Service”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

We booked the Villa for 5 nights and we would (and we will) certainly repeat.

We were a small group but there is plenty of space for large groups as there are 6 bedrooms, each with either a double bed or two large single beds. Very high spec throughout the place and all amenities included. It feels as if you were at home (Cable TV, Large TV, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning...)
Great outdoors - large space, very well kept, large swimming pool, plenty of space to sunbathe.
Great Location - In a quiet area, 5 walk minutes from the centre for taxi, supermarket, butcher, cafés, pharmacy... 15 min walk to a small but very pleasant beach and some restaurants. Very easy to take a taxi to other locations - e.g. Albufeira, Vilamoura.
Great Service - Easy to book, the hosts were very helpful and friendly, flexible with Check-in, Check-out, they arranged for Airport transfers and always at the end of the phone if anything was needed.

Definitely Recommended.

“Superb house, I would re-book it anytime!”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Villa Maria is a new house - a few months old when we rented it, and was therefore not simply immaculate but with all fittings and utensils virtually unused. Having said that, it is the high standard of construction, furnishings and décor - head and shoulders above the average holiday let - that impressed us most.

The metallic electric blinds which can be operated individually for each room or with a simple one-touch action for the entire house, not only serve their primary function admirably, but provide instant and very efficient security when leaving the house unoccupied during visits to the town or the beach.

Great attention to detail has been paid by the owner, from the comprehensive audio/ video and internet facilities, to the first rate kitchen and laundry appliances, right down to the beautiful, monogrammed towels worthy of a 5-star hotel.

This is a house that no only lives up to "brochure expectations", but actually surpasses them.

With 3-genrations of my family there, we needed a versatile house, and Vila Maria fitted the bill in every respect.

Very friendly and accessible owner (he lives in Lisbon but supplies guests with his mobile number) and his Olhos-resident mother personally sees the guests in and out.
