Spent 2 weeks in this house in July 2018 –family of 6 -2 adults and 4 children -16,16,14 and 11 yo.
Very easy to access the villa from Faro airport. We had pre booked a transfer which worked really well - no queuing and had a car delivered to the villa the following morning. Used Algarvedriver.com and prices much more reasonable when pre-booked online than booking on arrival.
Villa had a keysafe so we were able to gain access immediately and didn’t need to wait for anyone to meet us.
3 bedroom villa as described. All bedrooms had air-conditioning. As does lounge but didn’t need to use this. Main bedroom had a large -7ft bed and had spacious en-suite. Twin bedroom and double bedroom shared a bathroom. There was a problem with the plumbing in bathroom on the first week but this was dealt with immediately by Thelma in the property management office.
Kitchen really well equipped –had quite a few BBQs and had everything we needed
Lovely lounge –didn’t quite manage to work the TVs but WIFI excellent so kids weren’t complaining.
Pool fantastic –great size and very deep –inflatables available for use – we added an inflatable unicorn to the collection.
Lovely seating area beside pool with retractable awning, further seating area near BBQ and another seating area in internal courtyard. Also roof terrace with fantastic views
Matild came Monday Wednesday and Friday and cleaned floors and changed towels etc –what a treat!
Location was great – only a few minutes from local restaurant “ponto de encontro” that had good food and great value lunches – 3 courses, glass wine/beer and a coffee for €11.99!!
15 minutes walk to several good restaurants and bars and only 20 minutes to Carvoerio beach, more restaurants and lots of night time entertainment –live music, stalls, hair braiding, henna etc. etc etc
Centeannes beach was a favourite with our children –this was less than 20 walk in other direction – very safe, lots of cliffs giving some shelter from the sun and lovely restaurant. Can also book kayaking and boat trips from both beaches and also Benagil beach.
No food or bottled water in villa on arrival so would recommend stopping for essentials on your way –but easy walk into Carvoerio on Sunday morning – café and shop open from 8am. Larger supermarkets open from 8.30-9 to do proper shop.
Waterpark 5 mins drive away – loved by the kids –spent 6 hours there the first day €27 and then could get a band to allow a second entrance for €10 –spent 7 hours there the second day.
9 hole golf course 5 minutes away –able to rent clubs etc –very picturesque course and also café/restaurant on site
All in all, a wonderful holiday and have already booked it again for next year
