I organise a yearly holiday for a family of 11 in different parts of Spain or Portugal, including young teenagers right through to pensioners. Right from the start, Natalia at Pepa Vacation property, could not have been more warm and helpful, with her information and prompt replies to a multitude of questions. On arrival, she was there to greet us, along with a young local girl, Maria, who acted as a translator and showed us around the house. We were provided with fresh pastries and a bucket of ice-cold drinks, which were much appreciated after arriving to temperatures of near 40 degrees. We have been holidaying in little villages around Spain and Portugal as a family, for 8 years now, and we were unanimous in thinking that Pepa was by far the nicest villa we had stayed in. The property is just off a quite busy intersection, but you wouldn't know it, as we didn't hear a sound the whole holiday, except for the crickets and the laughs of the children playing in the pool, thanks to the high trees and hedges that surround the property. The place is stunningly laid out, with a beautiful garden, and ample areas for relaxation and games. The pool was beautiful and well-maintained. At night, it was lovely sitting outside at the long family dinner table (how often do you see a villa advertised for 11/12 people and there is only a table that fits 7 or 8), listening to music and knowing you weren't disturbing anyone, as there is plenty of privacy with the nearby properties all well spaced out. Inside, the villa was immaculate, and tastefully furnished, with all the facilities you will need. You can tell Natalia takes great pride in the property. It is a 15/20 minute stroll into the centre of town, but there are several bars and café's along the road to break the journey up. The town was more than adequate for our needs, with two large supermarkets and the usual bakeries, pharmacies etc. The local people are very friendly. Natalia was there to see us off early on our departure with warm words and a hug. We really could not have been more impressed with the property and Natalia. We found it to be great value for money, and if you're looking to get away from it all, but still like to be within walking distance to local amenities, then Pepa is the place for you. The only downside is that it is already booked for next August! Tip: ask Natalia for the account details, and you can order shopping deliveries online from the local supermarket.
