We stayed for a week in late July early August. 7 days was not enough, the villa was perfect on every level. Equipped with everything you would ever need. The pool was spotless and ideal for both adults & kids. It looked stunning when the sun went down and the pool lights came on!
The bedrooms were of a good size and felt very secure at night. The air con came in very useful as it was extremely hot during our visit. Wifi was great for keeping in touch with home too.
We hired a car which I think is a must due to the location of the villa, this suited us as we prefer the peace & quiet after visiting vilamoura, albuferia et all.
Jacqueline was great too, the welcome pack was much appreciated!! :-)
Can't recommend enough. We tend to visit a different country every year, but if we were to return to Portugal, we would stay again.

Stayed for 1 week with family group ranging from 11years of age to adults, and wish we had booked for a lot longer. More than a home from home. Everything you could ever need was provided from tooth picks to jelly moulds to a gorgeous arrival hamper ... The salt water pool means no sore eyes, kitchen fully equipped. Bedrooms luxurious, Air conditioning works brilliantly, lounge and dining area decorated with a contemporary feel and perfectly furnished. Gardens amazing, outside area has sun traps all day and shaded areas if needed. Roof terrace will make you fall in love with the whole area of Paderne. Lovely walk down to village (takes 10-15 mins), walk back slightly longer as more up than down hill. We chose to not hire a car and used the 3 times daily bus service (Return bus fare is around 5 Euros each) to Albuferia main town when we wanted to shop, sightsee. (Taxi back cost 13 Euros for 4 passengers). Enjoy the locals, who all wave, greet and give warm welcome to visitors. The local amenities of Vera Cruz coffee is delightful (1min walk), as is Nelias Café bar (3 min walk) and Celias Coffee shop (in main village). All-in all, we are now arranging to return later in the year and will most definitely stay again next year. In fact we are hoping the owners will consider selling so we can live there.. Here’s hoping!!!
