“Beautiful Villa in with stunning surroundings”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is an excellent sized villa with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a good sized living area and kitchen. The patio doors lead out on to a shaded patio which gives welcome shelter from the hotest part of the day. There is another patio where the plunge pool is located when you can lie in the sun surrounded by the mountains. It is so peaceful and relaxing and I would go back tomorrow. The villa is fitted with high quality finish throughout and there is so much space in it. There is sky television and WIFI available if you require it. Fiona couldnt do enough for me to make sure my stay was enjoyable and hassle free. I had an excellent holiday and really would love to go back again and I would reccommend it to anyone.

“Ideal Location - Fabulous Villa”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I first noticed this Villa on Ebay, Fiona the owner was very helpful, as despite travelled the world this was the 1st time we had decided to rent a private villa. We went with our 2 grandkids aged 6 & 4 so it was improtant the villa catered for their needs. I was in regular contact with Fiona over the weeks approacinhing our holiday. The only slight dissappointment was that the large swimming pool was not completed in time for our arrival, although this was not Fiona's fault the childrens pool was only sufficient for a cool off for myself and partner, but perfect for the kids.

The Villa itself is about a 15 min drive to Albuferia,and easy to find.There is a retail park about a 10 min drive away with a large Supermarket ( There is also an Iceland and Makro nearby), and beaches were no more than a 10 min drive away, if you wanted a change of scenery.

The Villa itself is in a quiet poisition you have no neighbours so you are in total privacy.
You do need a car, we reneted form Argus Car hire just a 5 min walk from the departures exit, BE WARNED THEY FILL THE PETROL TANK UPAND CHARGE YOU FOR THIS AND YOU DO NOT GET A REFUND IF YOU DO NOT USE ALL THE FUEL.

We were met at the Airport by Antonio , who is the husband of Patricia,( special mention to both they were fantasic to us during our stay) the person who cleans the villa a for you, and he escorted us to the villa, which was clean and tidy when we arrived.
There are 2 double bedrooms, another twin room, and a 3rd room with bunk beds and 1 single bed, so plenty of sapce.

The master bedtroom has a en-suite with power shower, the main bathroom has a bath and shower attachment.

The living room was airy and big patio doors which on a late afteroon and evening we left open to allow what cool air to come in ( it was 35 Degrees every day). There is a TV with basic SKY channels we took our own SKY card for extra channels (note if you have SKY sports/Movies you cannot receive them over there). There was also a DVD palyer with a selction of films.

There is a washing machine which we used almost every day especially with the kids.
We cooked mnost nights and there are plenty of utensils and pans at your disposal, along with a large fridge and Freezer ( again useful when buying frozen chips etc.. for the kids).

Fional also provided a picnic set which we took to the beach a copule of times.

Outside there is a large patio area with 5 sunbeds, and the kids pool, the patio is a suntrap, and gets the sun all day. There is also a mini patio area with table, settee & chairs, the kids loved eating their breakfast outside on a morning when it was a bit cooler. There is also a barbeque for use which we used on 1 occaision, and another table on the main patio.

The pool was cleaned 3 times by Antonio during our stay,and is around 3 foot deep so perfect for the kids.

As we had a full tank of fuel we decided on most days to go to the beach, we went to Albuferia old town, and tried the beaches there, as well as going to Alvor beach,and Portamo this was the 1st time we drove abroad, but after a day or 2 we had no problems finding our way around.

Fiona was a great help sorting out Booster seats for the kids, buying toys and colouring books to keep them occupied There was alos a supply of suncream, which was helpful as we flew on budget airline with hand luggage only we had a 100ml resriction on liquids.

So my overall impressions are the the villa as it stands would suit a family howver once the full size pool is completed it would also suit adults, but for a value for money holiday I would definately recommend this villa, just be careful of who you choose to hire your car from. You wonl't get a better bargain than this Villa compared to others, which can be on complexes with shared pools, if you are looking for something different, and with tyhe freedom to drive around Portugal if you wish, then Villa Fietcia could just be the perfect villa for you.
