Stayed for a week in June with family and friends for my 60th. The villa is great , clean and tidy and run buy a great team led by Filipe who couldn't be more helpful. So much room , people disappeared on occasions. Each room is a great size and all have ensuites bar the two in the garden annexe that share a bathroom. Kitchen is great with 3 fridges and a HUGE table . Also tables outside by the barb que that seat 20 plus. We had 20 people stay plus ten or so more for the party and it never felt crowded.
TV with all the channels you need inc UK .....Football !
All my family want to re book for next year.
Walking distance to the beach for most ( good beach bar too) , and to a well stocked Lidl. ( wine at 1.2 euros! ) Plenty to do in surrounding towns , Val de Lobo ( not cheap ) , good restaurants like Agustinos, near the water park fairly near. Good service by Uber but probably need a car.
We had the pool heated which was good and a 50 litre beer barrel on site ( as they have a tap and cooler )...what more could a man want in the sun surrounded by friends and family. Thanks Felipe and team.

26 family and friends just back from the most amazing holiday . This villa is simply stunning , the pictures do not do it justice.
More room than you could imagine even with 26 of us it never felt over crowded.
The villa is spotless and the staff are so nice and extremely helpful!!!
Beach , super market , restaurants all in walking distance and our crowd was a mix from 4 year olds to 65+ year olds and all found the walk easy.
Games room , pool and plenty of outside area meant our kids were never board, and plenty of eating and drinking area meant the adults weren't either !!
We opted to eat in most nights doing our daily shop at the super market and either using the well equipped kitchen or the lovely BBQ area to prepare our food.
Defo a place I hope to return to and would recommend to anyone looking to holiday on Portugal .

“Absolutely Fabulous 5 Stars”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Had my second Yoga and Pilates Retreat at this venue. It was first class and the owners are fantastic nothing is too much trouble they go beyond and above to make everything perfect. The villa is comfortable clean and has all amenities and in a beautiful quiet location. The rooms are decorated to a high standard the bathrooms are high standard, the gardens are well kept and the the villa is extremely clean with good decor and has a small gym to use. I had a party of 15 and the owners organised a chef and maid service for our retreat and helped with taxi's and events and car rental and shopping on arrival. I would highly recommend this villa and the other villas the owner has to rent if you want a carefree stress free and first class holiday. I will be booking again for next year and the following years without any hesitation all my guests had a wonderful time and want to book for the coming years. Wonderful location, and villa and first class service by the owners. Dawn Yoga Retreat.

Just back today from staying here at the Villa Laranja. We were a group of 14 on a yoga holiday. The owner could not do enough to help us. Arranged for us to have a cook come in three times during our stay. Very happy with accommodation. Villa is really roomy I have no complaints. Bed was comfortable. Heated pool. Beach was a 15 minute walk. Nice restaurant and owners at the beach too.
If I had one negative comment it would be that there wasn't a separate toilet down stairs and we had to go to our bedrooms to use the facilities.
Would definitely come again.

Dear Gina,

thank you so much for your stay, I'm glad you have enjoyed the villa and your yoga holiday, I will look into this and improve the villa with a new WC having access from the outdoor close to the pool.
Hope to have you here on the future again,
Best wishes,
Filipe

“Fantastic place for a large group or family.”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a brilliant stay here with 10 members of our family for a 50th Anniversary , only for a week but could have stayed forever ! Masses of space for all , including a 2 bed bungalow in the grounds if needed, the owners are extremely helpful, they can also supply a cook who is very good ,in fact if we go again we will have her do all the cooking not just 2 nights, the pool is not the largest but the beach is within walking distance , the games room is a definite bonus , the whole place was clean and perfect for children or adults to stay . I will go back again .

“Perfect Big Family Villa”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

Myself and my family stayed here from 24/04 to 02/05. There was 25 of us in total including a mix of Adults, Children and Infants.

Although the villa is stated as called villa Laranja it is best just to refer to it as "33 Fonte Santa" as everyone knows where that is - No one knows its called Laranja.

Most bed rooms have en-suite or shared en-suite facilities. The rooms were all of a good size and suited a mixed family/group with a mix of twin beds and doubles. The living area was very spacious and had plenty of comfy seating - enough for everyone!

Kitchen was a good size and had great cooking facilities with 3 fridge freezers and everything you would ever need to cook with! Pool was a little smaller than the pictures made it look however still big enough providing all 26 of you don't go in at the same time :).

Very well kept gardens, grass and have a lovely lemon tree at the bottom of the gard which goes great in your drinks on a night!

We paid for kegs of beer whilst we were there and would highly recommend it as was €150 per keg but you got about 70 pints out of it so only worked out just over £1.20 a pint and was lovely - very refreshing in the sunshine whilst chilling in your own private space.

The villas location was also quite good. It was only a 5-10 minute walk to a big Lidl shopping market to get your weeks shopping in and cheap booze and also a few close restraunts and bars nearby. Also on a Wednesday there is a huge market next to Lidl which sells just about anything and you can pick stuff up very cheap - Just remember to barter!

Taxi to Villamoura will take you 10 minutes and is only €10 so you are in arms reach of some real nice resorts but also have the option to chill in your peaceful villa!

All in all a great experience and would definitely recommend this villa to anyone!

I am sure we will return again in the not so distant future.
