My wife and I have recently returned from a week's stay at Vila Vida. We both agreed that this was our best holiday ever and that was in no small part due to Vila Vida.
We booked the main villa which gave us the rooftop terrace in addition to access to the pool. The view from the roof top terrace is fabulous during day or night - watching the sunset with a chilled glass of whatever you fancy in your hand .... memories to last.
The pool and patio area is lovely although it is not a heated pool but it is regularly cleaned. Wasn't an issue though as you soon acclimatise when in the water.
The villa itself is really spacious and well equipped. You'll find everything you need from stapler to wifi to wireless printer. More than enough crockery, towels/bedding, etc.
The owners Sas and Paul were really helpful (despite me not reading instructions provided!?) and were considerate enough to leave a nice bottle of Rose for our arrival.
My husband and I recently stayed at this apartment. We found it ticked all our boxes., as we usually stay in a hotel, and having enjoyed this stay so much, I will consider more villa rentals in the future, only if they are comparable with the high standards at Vila Vida. It was almost like home from home. I felt really relaxed staying at the villa, with the added advantage of a washing machine, there was no washing to bring home and I really loved that. I can't wait to return. Everything is accessible. The walk down the hill to restaurants and shops was very easily negotiated, and a lovely walk back up after dinner. Just one comment to make be patient with the TV as it takes time to program.
