We stayed here, 14 adults for a week in September during which time we renewed our Wedding vows after 25 years by a little chapel on the beach on Senhora de Rocha. We had an absolute ball. The Villa was spotless, the bedrooms were beautiful. We had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. Plenty of bathrooms, Fab barbecue and the pools were just the best! 7 minute drive to Armacao de Pera beach which was a bonus. Plenty of supermarkets for shopping and the biggest fridge I have ever seen in the kitchen! Steve and Janie made us feel so at home, delightfully welcoming, accomodating and on hand for any questions or requests......We can’t wait to return.! Highly recommend for a large group of adult friends!
myself and my family have just spent an amazing week at a great villa, from the moment we arrived everything was perfect, the owners Steve & Janie were excellent hosts. would return without hesitation.
Spent a week at the villa which was fantastic in all ways. Outside area is fabulous and gives enough space for a big group of people to relax in their own space. Inside is well equipped and rooms lovely. Most of all the owners Steve and Janie can’t do enough to help and even had a case of beer they lent us when we ran out ! Thank you both for making my 50th one we’ll all remember.
Really nice villa, only moan is that they need to replace the towels as really old and hard but might have done that by now, but great place for big groups of people, relaxing area. The pool and garden is the best things about this villa as so big, we spent most of our time in the garden/Pool. I would say car necessary though as the roads were not really that safe to walk on as no path. Friendly owners.
We had an excellent stay, and Steve and Janie could not have been more helpful. We arrived at separate times in three cars, two of which got lost in different locations. Steve rescued both in his own car and was cheerful about it. He was also full of good advice on various issues and had stocked the villa with various items we requested for the first meal.
We liked the location a lot. On a very spacious lot in the hills above Armacao de Pera, yet only about 5 minutes away from the nearest beach, it was quiet and tranquil, which must be a great blessing in the frantic summer months. Ideal for outdoor living, with plenty of patio furniture and quiet corners to sit and read. Indoors the kitchen is well equipped, and there are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, all in good shape and modern.
The living room is less impressive than the rest of the house, and the pool was too cold for our grandchildren to make much use of. But it was late October, near the end of the season, and the pool must be bliss in summer. In fact the whole place must be bliss in summer.
I chose the heading deliberately. I can't think of a nicer place to stay in summer, when I would be very little inclined to leave the property and join the crowds. We were lucky with the weather, in the mid to high 20's. But I suppose our large party of 11 might have chafed a bit if it had rained throughout.
Bottom line: a very enjoyable stay. In fact my wife and I stayed on in Armacao for several days to enjoy the fabulous beach walks and the lagoons behind the nearby dunes which are teeming with birdlife.
