Owners of the villa were lovely and very helpful. Villa was in a wonderfully secluded location - perfect for families.
My husband and l would like to say how helpfull James Villas were in getting us to our destination .The directions were so easy to follow , which was a first for us. Hiring the car which had been organised by James Villas also went very well with no problems, plus parking at the airport straight forward and simple to follow. The villa was just what we had hoped for very quiet and secluded. The staff came in to change towels every other day which was very unusual and very good. The gardener always came early the pool floor was washed every day and in all it was very clean and tidy. The only point l could make is the pool has quite a steep drop once in the water which might be a problem for small children if the parents did not know. The supermarket was very near and had a good stock of food and cakes, the car made life much easier as you are down a small dirt track which makes it very peacefull . Lovely time was had.
Staff was very helpful and placed fresh flowers in the villa throughout our holiday. Very good client service from her and her husband
We stayed at Villa Fernandes, Albufeira, for the second year running. Villa and facilities all excellent. The owner, who lives next door was delightful. She and her husband, although they could speak no English, were very friendly and cleaned the pool area and villa virtually each day and changed the towels every other day. The area, although handy for shops, beaches and restaurants etc., is quiet and secluded.
Lovely villa, and a lady we presume to be the owner was very friendly. She changed towels and tidied every other day or so which we were not expecting. The villa is definitely off the beaten track and accessed via an unmade road but it meant it was lovely and quiet. I wouldn't recommend hiring a larger car as it would be easy to park it at the villa. We had a wonderful time.
It was absolutely excellent in all aspects. The friendly service and assistance provided by the villa owners just added to the overall pleasure of staying at Villa Fernandes
The owner provided an excellent service and kept villa in an immaculate condition, she a provided service way above what we expected
Fresh flowers every other day was a lovely touch. Despite the villa being very peaceful the super market and old town were within very easy reach - ideal.
Villa is a beautiful setting very peaceful and private. Kept wonderfully clean by the owners with fresh flowers every other day. Very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. Not suitable for walking into Albufeira at night. Would def book again.
exactly what we were looking for, out of the main tourist area but close enough to amenities.
A superb villa in a very quiet location but close to local amenities - perfect for our needs. The villa was cleaned three times whilst we were there, with fresh flowers being provided each time - a level of service far above expectations, but very much appreciated. Excellent pool side facilities meant we could take advantage of the weather all day, and enjoy alfresco meals in the evenings.
A lovely villa, exceptional service, our towels were changed three times in a week!
A veritable home from home with everything you could possibly need. The owner provided fresh flowers and clean towels and a discreet and welcome presence throughout our stay. Although we couldn't speak each others language ,we managed very well! A little off the beaten track, but well worth it for the absolute peace and quiet, and with a car ,getting around presents no problems.Would recommend.
Beautiful villa & the owner is just lovely! The villa was cleaned when we didn't expect it to be within a couple of days during our stay, The outside area & pool was cleaned before we even wakened. Fresh towels were left nearly every day, even though we had a washing machine & washed our own towels every day. The only downside was the location, it was bit too far out of the way. This would have been a lot better if we had of been a bit more confident driving on the Portuguese roads. All in all a very relaxing, pleasant holiday.
The Lady who apparently owns the villa was fantastic, and it felt good to have her live close by.
Access to the villa for a large car would be difficult
The owner of the Villa was a most unbelievably friendly and kind lady and couldn't do enough to make our stay an enjoyable one.
Our Representative, the concierge, at the Villa, was just wonderful. Though, having no English and us, very limited, Portuguese, she made us so welcome, with cut flowers,etc at the Villa. She kept in spotlessly clean, inside and out, and was always happy and cheerful. She was a delight!
The car had minor damage to the exterior and was smaller than the Panda that was expected. The villa was in a secluded location and had a walled south facing garden which provided additional privacy. The owner of the villa (Maria) was extremely friendly. Maria kept both the inside and outside of the villa very clean and her presence was very discreet. The outside of the villa and the pool were cleaned before 8am which means that at no time was our holiday interrupted. I would strongly recommend this villa and would almost certainly book again.
We had an excellent time and the villa immediately felt welcoming and like home. Great little extras around the villa such as flowers and modern ornaments and decoration. If I had to comment on any negative points it would be that the directions we had weren't that specific and it took us a while to find the villa in the dark and got lost a few times. Maybe a sketch or a printed map would help.
We had a fantastic holiday and were especially pleased with the cleanliness of the villa. Please send our thanks to the lovely lady who came to our villa every two days to clean and change towels. This is much more than we expected and although we couldn't understand a single word each other said we still managed to find her kind and thoughtful ie. she ensured there were always fresh flowers from her own garden in our villa and she came out to wave us goodby when we left. We would definately like to visit this villa again in the future.
I have already emailed James Villas with my satisfaction of the holiday and received a very nice letter in return.
My wife and I enjoyed a most relaxing week in the Algarve. A small problem we had with the shower was sorted in less than 45 mins by the owner after I contacted the Rep. I would happily recommend this type of holiday.
