“A relaxing quiet villa in a picturesque location.”

Stayed in villa Isabella with my wife and our two close friends, very spacious and clean, Lurdes the villa manager very, very helpful and pleasant, nothing too much trouble for her. A pleasant 20 min walk to centre of Old Town along a pathway away from the roads (would recommend a taxi back when dark), both bedrooms en-suite with a futher toilet and shower downstairs, so no waiting to get ready. Pool right outside rear balcony via gate. Downside is TV only had news channels in English, so after 10 mins you'd seen all, DVD player provided, but no DVD's. Yes would stay again without hesitation.

“Fantastic, Relaxing, just what we needed.”

We booked this holiday as we wanted a relaxing family break by the pool. This is exactly what we got.

The 2 bedroom villa had all the amenities required, there was a local Portuguese supermarket within walking distance. There was also a Lidl and Aldi you can walk there but would need to get a taxi back - with all the heavy bags.

We don't normally cook while we are away, however the Kitchen was fully equipped and we stayed in 5 nights out of our 14, there was a large dining table within the apartment and furniture outside where we would sit and have breakfast and lunch.

We were within walking distance to the old town, were there was plenty of restaurants and bars only a leisurely 10/15 minute stroll. If we wanted a taxi back it was only 6 Euro's.

After reading some reviews we contacted the owners on a few occasions and they responded almost immediately, and were very helpful. They even arranged a a taxi to pick us up from the airport and take us directly to the villa for 40 Euro each way. The pictures shows a washing machine, but it's not actually in the kitchen, it's just in the hall outside.

The pool area was very quite during the morning, it did start to get busier until around 4pm.

I liked the very firm mattress, the sheets were changed weekly, there was one bath and one hand towel per person, again changed weekly.

The main bathroom had a jacuzzi bath, which was fantastic after a long day basking in the sun. The other 2 showers in the villa had fantastic pressure, allowed us all to get ready at the same time.

We would definitely go back to this Villa, and would like to thank Nuno & Lurdes for making this a very relaxing holiday for myself and my family.

“Great villa for a great holiday”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Big end terrace villa over 2 floors. Lower floor has big fitted kitchen (fridge freezer, dishwasher etc), shower room, big kitchen diner and nice patio right at the pool. Upper floor has big double bedroom with large balcony, twin room, both ensuite. All tiled throughout with quality fixtures and furniture. Power shower.
TV is poor so take Apple TV or something similar and watch via free wifi.
Pool is great and we used the tennis court twice a day. No one else seemed to.
Location is good, 1 mile from old town, nice walk or taxi. We would walk back along road at midnight no probs. Has excellent restaurant on site and another 100m away. New supermarket opened 400m away. Lidl/Aldi 1 mile away, petrol station and tourist info 800m.
Don't believe the map location on trip advisor, this is not near the marina- it's in Calicos below Albufeira camping.
If you book it and need further info on location or villa entry, drop me a line.
We had a great time and other than sparse emails and confusing entry details mentioned elsewhere, would really recommend it.

Just back from a week in Villa Isabella with my two daughters.
The villa has everything you could possibly need, including free WI FI.
Its a few steps to the pool. The villa was spotless clean.
Lovely walk into the Old Town.
We couldn't fault our time there in any way!!l
We would love to return there again.
Lourdes and her sister were very helpful.

“Lovely Villa, quiet and relaxing.”

This is a lovely villa, exceptionally clean and very big, with everything you need, however the furniture and bedding wasn't what was advertised in the online photo's, also the layout of the villa was not what was shown. This didn't deter from making this a good holiday, but being the nearest to the pool could maybe be noisy in busy times. Also there is no English TV stations and no safe as stated in the details of the property and also no washing machine in the kitchen as in the photo's, you can use the one under the stairs that the owners use but we were not able to use this as it was full of their washing all the time we were there and that was 16days. Farm Village is a great location, very quiet and relaxing, with just a 15 minute stroll to the o!d town. The bedding and towels were only changed once in 16days, although only being 2of us we used the towels that were on the spare beds, but please be aware.

When we arrived we went to reception but there was no one there and because we happened to park in front of the apartment we stumbled across the landlady for the keys. We where only given one set of keys between 4 of us for a week even though we asked for more.
The apartment was lovely inside and was clean and tidy and there where plenty of kitchen utensils, think there could have been some basics left like toilet roll and some cleaning equipment. It was within easy walking distance from Aldi and Lidil as long as you are ok with hills and only 5 euro in taxi. Area was nice and peace full plenty of sun beds round the pool. Bbq on balcony had a lovely night in and Albeferia old town and new had lovely places to eat and drink which was cheap enough to get a taxi.
We think we may have left a watch in the apartment and we have emailed the landlord a few times but have not received no reply.

The villa and complex are 5* Only problem we had was a problem with the owner contacting us with information I had requested. As this was the 1st time I had booked a holiday independently was slightly worried when I hadn't had a reply to a couple of emails. Also little information given about the collection and returning of keys and how gadgets work there
is no information pack. The villa is fantastic but if you are intending to eat in I would recommend packing all the little items like salt, pepper, dishwasher tabs as nothing provided. We hired a car and glad we did as would have been quite a hike into albuferia. All in all had a lovely time and would return.
