“Family holiday with James Villas”
Reviewed April 21, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Wow! First impression - stunning!! Arrived after midnight on Saturday and the first look around was very exciting. That was nothing to the spectacle of the morning after! Waking to the views and a good look around that revealed a holiday villa that is, in a word - outstanding! Sometimes the pictures online or in a brochure can flatter - not in this case. A superb week had in a superb location! The Villa is well equipped with all that you need and includes a great little pool and hot-tub. A short path down to a gorgeous, golden sandy beach can lead one way around a rocky cliff side walk towards other beaches, or towards the Old Town which is far nicer than the newer Strip. It is a bit hidden away and was fun trying to find late at night in a foreign country, but gps on the iPhone worked a treat and 'hidden away' can be just what you need! Would recommend heartily - but only at times when we don't want to return!!

“Family holiday ”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The villa is beautiful and very spacious. There rooms are lovely and modern. The pool was nice and the view is to die for! You have everything u need close by from lovely restaurants to the strip of bars and clubs but there is a few wee niggly things that need looked at. There was 4 sun beds and 7 of us(villa fits 9 people). The path down to the beach is a bit like a jungle walk and a few loose steps make it a bit scary. Bits of the decking are coming up.A lack of the reps presence was also noted. (A tad abandoned we still don't know what she looks like)careful with your last day as we had to be out by 10am and our flights were not until 7pm.(not what you want to be organising on your last day of rays!!) The cleaner only appeared once on our weeks holiday. All in this villa is lovely and we had a fantastic holiday but it just needs a few small changes to make it perfect!!I am only making these points as it's advertised as a luxury villa and I would not say it is.

Dear sasbe, i'm isabelle OWNER. I'm happy you enjoy your holidays and thanks to your comments concerning villa and situation.
Concerning sun beds, i'm surprised because we have 6 sunbeams, 2 Poufs and 1 mattress for 2 peoples..
the way to the beach is not a bit like jungle, there is step in concret and the end of the path go tropical vegetation. So perhap's might needs to be cut. thanks for the information. i will inform my staff.
You have in the villa my contact; it just was necessary to call me or to contact your representative J. V.or our staff.
Yes, 10am is the hour of check-out. Others customers coming after you. So impossible to satisfy you. If we had other solution, yes we would have been pleased to arrange a later check-out for you.
Yes, cleaners only come once a week (what is foreseen in your rental agreement) but you had the option to order daily cleaner with supplement.
we have many option/Services, you just need to order at the check'in.
Hope to see you again.

“Excellent Villa, highly reccommended”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very happy to have found this villa, right on the beach and very well appointed. Pretty easy access to amenities and you could manage without a car. We chose to have a car as we like exploring restaurants etc and was very useful for the larger supermarket shopping.

Thanks to Isabelle and Rui for a stress free organisation and welcome, all went without a hitch.

September is still a really nice temperature although it can cool off in the evening.

Bakery for fresh bread etc is walkable between 3 palms and worms roundabout. Also a lunch restaurant/bar is 5 mins away ( Turn LEFT on the beach to the next cove). Great spot with really nice staff.

We could take or leave the Old own to be honest but we did find a couple of good retaurants ( Ricardos and The Ruins Restaurant with excellent fish). We liked Guia for the Chicken ( car needed) as it is easily the best in the Algarve. The closest place is Panache ( think that's what its called) as is surprisingly good. The beef is excellent.

You would not be disappointed with Villa la Plage or location.

Thanks again.

“Fabulous place, all facilities excellent for a large family group”

Ideal place for the family. 8 of us, three generations, from 68yrs to 15 months. This villa is so very comfortable. It is full of facilities but not so perfect that you spend all the time worrying about spoiling or breaking something. It is a relaxing place in an ideal setting. Nice restaurants all around. The beach is a major feature, a constant view and a gentle stroll out the back gate.

I cannot say anything against this wonderful place

“Couldn't have asked for a better villa!”
Reviewed July 2, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed at this villa for a week with a group of friends, and really enjoyed the holiday here! The villa suited our needs well, was spacious, had plenty of amenities. Kitchen is very well equipped, as is the lounge area. Plenty of space in the courtyard to park cars/bikes. Views over beach out to sea were gorgeous, especially at sunset! Garden was well equipped with plenty of sun loungers/chairs around the pool. Located in a good place - half way between the old town and the strip. Accessed by a road leading through to a private property area. Quickest way to the old town is along the beach, which again is accessed by a private gateway and path down. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for either a family or friends holiday!

Stayed here with a group of 10 friends between the ages of 26-31 and all had a great week! The villa is lovely and very well equipped.
We weren't that big fans of Albufeira itself but with a villa that nice and a great beach on our doorsteps it didn't bother us! We went to Lagos for a day which was much nicer, would definitely recommend a trip here while staying in the villa and going for a kayak trip around the caves!
The owner was very friendly and helpful and takes good care of her villa! Would definitely go back!
