“Fantastic Holiday Home with superb facilities”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We just thought we would write a recommendation to anyone who has clicked on this house. We stayed for two weeks with our 3 year old son and loved playing in the pool when we weren't playing at the beach 5 minutes away. The house itself had heaps of space with four bedrooms and several rooms to chill out in from the cinema and games room. Plus there was even a pool table to play in the evening. The gym wasn't used quite as much! The family were really helpful having lived there for several years and know all the best shops to go to for supplies - again 5 minutes away. they came and cleaned the pool every few days which was appreciated. We even managed to get a babysitter for an evening! The beaches are fanatic, mile after mile of golden sand softly shelving in to the sea, with a beautiful beach. And the area seems to have its own little microclimate as it wood be raining half an hour away in Faro and we would have blue skies! The beach bars and restaurants were great value and had superb seafood, remember to check out Pezinhos if you go. Thanks for making our stay so memorable. Our only suggestion is that we hope they leave some of the cooking basics we bought as it's always helpful to not have to buy everything e.g. washing up liquid, olive oil etc, washing tablets. They did leave a hamper with snacks, milk , juice and tea. We would highly recomend the house which was made even better by the extra effort the family made to help us.

“The Ultimate 5 star villa holiday. Its the best we've stayed in.”

We stayed at La Residencia for our main summer holidays and booked it online. We travelled as a group with five adults and three children aged between 8 and 14.

For sure, this is the best villa we have ever stayed and the owners should be very pleased to be able to offer such a great villa for family summer holidays. The owners were very helpful from the initial booking to providing us with directions on how to get to the villa from the airport, which actually was very easy and only took 40 minutes. A great welcome pack was also provided that included everything we needed to get us going before we went to the supermarket.

What really stands out about this villa is the quality and range of facilities that they offer. The home cinema and games room was fantastic and kept our kids busy with loads of films and games available to watch. My husband also spent an hour every day in the gym which was well equipped.

The house is about five minutes drive away from Praia Verde beach, which was something else altogether. The beach was like something you would find in Barbados and the restaurant that was recommended by the owners was amazing. In fact we went there four times during our holiday it was so so good.

We spent much of our time outside as you would expect and the swimming pool is very nicely kept and maintained and is surrounded by tropical plants and trees. The terrace area is very big and extends around the back of the house and there is a BBQ and outdoor dining table with chairs and table. We used this a lot !!

The villa was very clean and up to 5 star hotel standards. The beds, linen, towels were all of a very high quality and the swimming pool was maintained during our stay. All the beds were changed after our first week and new towels provided.

Overall, it was a dream holiday, a villa to die for and great beaches and restaurants near by. We were very happy and so were the kids too. We had good weather and spent time visiting some of the places nearby and also went over to Spain for a day to have tapas and a wonder around the shops.

In my opinion, I would highly recommend that you stay at this villa and explore the local area. I don't think you will be disappointed and you will see how reasonable all the bars and restaurants are and stay in a very comfortable villa with everything you could ever dream of.

We would have no reservations at all in staying at this property again in the future. It is a credit to the owners who obviously have put a lot of time into this house and its facilities.

“Exceptional villa - everything we expected and more!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The villa was exceptional, well equipped and well maintained. Dawn and Mike were not only very welcoming but also very helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them. The quality of the furnishings was excellent and the villa lacked nothing. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anybody and it is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in.

The area was very peaceful but within a few minutes drive there were plenty of amenities and things to do. As a group we chose to not hire a car as we like to have a break from driving. The local train station in Castro Marim is a 30 minute easy walk and whilst it is rural trains were always on time and reliable. For the two weeks we stayed at the villa we used the same taxi company with a 6 seater taxi and Joam daily for trips, drop offs at restaurants a and supermarkets etc which worked really well for us. The villa is well situated for both the Algarve and Spain and we were able to enjoy the best of both.

Overall, we loved the villa and all of its amenities which were exceptional. The welcome received from Dawn and Mike was sincere and above what you would normally expect from villa owners. Highly recommended and suitable for all ages.

Thank you very much for your review of our villa, we appreciate your comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and stay with us in the Eastern Algarve.

It is good to hear from our guests and we are glad the villa exceeded your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay. The facilities we offer well exceed what is usually available in a holiday villa and we know the cinema and gym have been very popular with our guests not to mention the family room with pool table and Xbox.

The Eastern Algarve is still unspoilt compared to many other areas of the Algarve and we are pleased to hear that you explored the local area and made the most of your time here.

Thanks again very much for your kind words and for deciding to spend your summer holidays with us. We do hope that you will recommend our villa to friends and family who may also enjoy the experience of Portugal.
