“Great holiday, clean spacious villa and very accommodating helpful owners”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our party consisted of two families (7 people) and there was plenty of space which meant we didn't feel on top of each other. Lovely garden area with pool, plenty of outdoor seating for relaxing or dinning and bed rooms are a good size. Paulo and Cristina, the owners, were fantastic and incredibly prompt from the outset when booking and during our stay with any questions or help required. Only a 2mins taxi drive to the marina, where you can book boat trips and other activities, there are also 5-6 restaurants there and overall a very welcoming atmosphere. Old town is 4mins drive away and great for families, there are also plenty of local beeches to visit nearby (anywhere between 3-6mins drive). For shopping there is a very convenient supermarket (Oceano) which is 5mins drive away - thankfully all this information and other great tips are in a brilliant information book Paulo and Cristina have put together. Super holiday, thank you Cristina and Paulo

“Beautiful villa, stunning surroundings, perfect holiday”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in this beautiful villa, the end of April / beginning of May, it was clean, spacious, very comfortable and so beautifully decorated. Location is perfect, nestled in lovely quiet surroundings yet the Old Town in only 5 minutes in a taxi. Villa is completely private and peaceful. The pool area is very relaxing with lots of pool accessories supplied which was very handy. The pool itself is nice but quite dangerous, it dips very steeply into the deep end and is easy to slip, spent most of the time sitting in the baby pool with my twins (10 months old). There is a swing and a slide there also for older children. The games room is great at night when the babies were in bed, totally sound proof, so we could just bring the monitor in and be as loud as we liked. We really enjoyed the dart board but there were only two proper darts, the rest were plastic, so couldn't really play properly. We didn't make use of the outdoor bbq or stone oven, the week just went too quick, we will definitely use it next time, it's fully equiped. The villa has everything in it you could need, which really makes it feel like a home away from home, plenty of kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, lots of games, books, dvds etc. The only thing is our bed was uncomfortable and lumpy, we stayed in the downstairs double bed, although one of the guests stayed in the upstairs bedroom and said the bed was very comfortable. The owners Paulo and Cristina were very friendly and helpful, we arrived in on a late flight and Paulo very kindly brought us shopping so we could pick up groceries for the following morning, and even bought us a pizza! They also leave a very handy folder with handy tips and recommendations with maps etc.we found this very useful. Overall I would highly recommend this wonderful villa and we are already planning our next trip and will be bringing more people with us next year!

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for a week in mid April, the Villa is wonderful, looks even better in real life than in the photo's. Four large, spacious bedrooms, large open plan living area, modern kitchen, nice gardens and pool, and a separate games room and barbecue area tick all the boxes!

The owners Christina and Paulo are extremely nice people, very helpful and live nearby in the unlikely event of any problems. We would highly recommend this Villa to others.

“Best Holiday Ever”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in September 2012

Myself and 7 other members of our family stayed at this Villa in September 2012. To cut a long story short, I have to say that it was the most comfortable relaxing holiday ive ever had.

This place is like a home from home but on another scale. Fantastic pool, comfortable living areas, BBQ area and a games room including a pool table (i'm current pool champion ;-)

The beach is a 15 minute walk away. Shops are a 10 minute walk away, Albufeira old town is a 5 minute taxi ride.

In my opinion this Villa is in a perfect spot for a quite relaxing holiday, however not too far away if you want mix it up with a livelier atmosphere in Albufeira town centre.

I would highly recommend this place and i'm sure in the future we will return

“Perfect Vila !”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Myself and 5 of my family stayed in Vila Santos at the start of May and loved it.
It is a perfect vila and has everything you need.
Good size kitchen and plenty of space around the house.
Lovely pool and we made use of the BBQ outside as well.
The games room of Pool and table soccer was a great hit after lounging in the sun all day.
Fab restaurant 2 doors up, Sunshine , which we had seen had been recommended .
We had a lovely dinner there which was half the price of the restaurant we went to in Old Town Albuferia and better quality food.
Great Tourist menu special for €12.50, 3 courses with a glass of beer.
The owners Paulo & Cristina could not of been any nicer and very welcoming.
Would go back there tomorrow if I was allowed by the Wife !!
Highly recommended!
