“The name says it all!”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Wow, what a fantastic villa. Beautiful location, beautiful views and the villa itself is simply stunning.
We enjoyed many hours in and around the lovely pool and used the bbq several times and ate on the balcony. Everything has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The owners were extremely helpful when booking and the house managers were very friendly when they met us on our arrival.
We had such a lovely time, the most relaxing family holiday we've had for a long time.

“Peaceful, well equipped villa.”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a excellent stay at Villa Peacehaven. Situated in a quiet location with wonderful views it provided the perfect setting for our family to relax. It is ideal for a family with a gated pool area and both sunny and shaded areas for watching the pool fun/sunbathing. Grass areas also provided extra space. The interior is well designed, the air conditioning kept us cool when needed and having two fridges made sure we had plenty of cool drinks and food. We will definitely be looking to return.

“Superb villa, views and so peaceful!”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This villa is the best we have stayed in in our ten years of visiting Loule for our summer break. The house is very cool, has superb facilities, including lovely bed and bathrooms and a lovely open plan feel. The villa really comes into its own when you are sitting in the shaded veranda overlooking the valley, with amazing views. Excellent pool area with good shaded areas and (reasonably) friendly local cats and bull frogs just added to the wonderful sense of peace and quiet. Great local town, big enough to provide some life, without being touristy. Will be booking again.

“Fantastic Villa, Stunning Views”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We recently returned to this villa for a holiday and basically, didn’t want to go home!

The villa is very comfortable with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The outside space is especially beautiful with stunning views over the valley and the whole area is peaceful and tranquil.

There are great restaurants nearby, Monte da Eira is a firm favourite of ours serving fine dining Portuguese cuisine.

Loule town is only a few minutes’ drive away and the Saturday market is a must for local fresh fruit and produce.

The villa itself is very well equipped with plenty of sunbeds around the pool which catches the sun all day long. There’s also a really nice shaded area under the carob trees for relaxing out of the sun.

As ever, Ray and Fiona, the property managers are always on hand to ensure everything goes smoothly with your holiday and now have become good friends.

Many thanks to the owners, Bernadette and Chris and we look forward to returning to Peacehaven again soon.

“Fantastic family holiday in beautiful villa”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wow- what a find! After hours of traipsing the internet looking for a villa that would give us a pool for the kids, peace and quiet for my husband and proximity to restaurants for me, we finally booked Villa Peacehaven and a Peacehaven it was!
We pulled up at the gates and were pleased and by the time Fiona had finished showing us around we were jumping up and down like a couple of kids in glee at how happy we were! The pool was perfect, secure, stunning views, loads of sun loungers so you could follow the sun/shade around the pool, heated and near to the house. The villa itself was utterly spotless with everything you could need to make your stay comfortable including a deliciously quiet air con unit in our bedroom!
We ate out most evenings at a number of the nearby restaurants which were a short drive away or a very reasonable cab drive away with Mario! A Quinta was probably our favourite and we visited twice, we also loved Mem and Casa do Campo - all great with kids and all meant we could be back in time to watch the sunset on the balcony with a glass of wine. Bliss.
We did not want to leave and arrived home thoroughly rested and at peace. Thank you for a holiday to remember!

“Perfection...no other words needed.”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We've stayed in multiple villas throughout the Algarve and this is the best, by far!

The location of the villa, the amenities, the quality of furniture, everything is perfect.

Ray and Fiona (the Managers) are great and go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. Bernadette (the owner) was fantastic in answering queries before our holiday.

The pool is fenced off (perfect for young children like ourselves), there's a large garden space, large BBQ, lots of sun loungers both around the pool and in shaded areas, and some excellent (and very comfy) garden furniture in the balcony areas.

We couldn't find one negative to say about our whole experience...we would recommend Villa Peacehaven without a doubt. If you're considering it, stop - just book!

“This Villa is superb!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

This Villa is superb!!

My wife and I stayed with another family, 4 adults and 3 children ranging from 4-1. There was ample room without being under each other feet and lots there to keep the children entertained (mostly the pool). The whole premise is clean, tidy with a lovely décor.

Hiring a car is a wise move with numerous supermarkets within 5-10 minutes drive. You are close enough to the beaches and harbors to really enjoy a long day out or evening meal but far enough away to enjoy the tranquil silence (once the children have gone to bed).

Both my wife and I would love to go back next year and recommend this villa to anyone.
