“Absolute Magica!”

We are a family of 6, mum, dad and four children between 5 and 11. We had a WONDERFUL time at Villa Magica earlier this year in every respect. This really is a "home from home" feel and not a plastic modern villa. The grounds were just great, loads of space for the kids to run around and a super pool at the end of the garden that backs onto the golf course. You really MUST get into the resort train (road going tractor with carriages really) which will stop directly outside the villa (if you flag it down) and take you to the marina / beach. There is plenty of space to catch the sun and also plenty of shade. You will have the phone number and Email address for the owner if you have any questions, he is a real gent, very helpful and very professional. The pictures are a true representation of what you will be getting. A great holiday in a great villa, thank you for letting us stay!

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed October 17, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great villa, both indoor as outdoor!

Very spacious garden, nice patio’s to enjoy a BBQ or relax at night. But also from the inside the villa has something magical with a lot of artfully details. The owner Jose and the house manager Pedro are at your exposal 24/7 to help out if there should be an issue.

In one word: PERFECT!

“It is indeed a magic villa.”

Quiet location, a bit far from the marina, so car is advised. You can also take the touristic road train, but it takes quite a while when going in the direction of the marina. The outdoor areas are simply fantastic! Most of the interior is great as well. Please note that one of the bedrooms is in an underground floor, with limited light and ventilation. Everything else was great, though!

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent much of the time outside, at the pool, in the garden and on the patio overlooking the golf course; because this proved so relaxing. One feels no need to visit the beach, despite the fact that this is a very short journey from the villa, as indeed are most facilities. Yet, the villa's surroundings are quiet, being in one of the top residential areas in Vilamoura. The garden is kept beautifully.
The marina is minutes away, shopping is minutes away, the parcours is minutes away as are most other facilities.
The beds were very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep every night. The villa is fully equipped and is like visiting someone's home, because this really is the case. José the owner is most curteous and correct and goes out of his way to ensure that his guests do not feel as if anything is missing.
We had a great holiday and can certainly recommend Villa Mágica to other families.
