Situated in the rural area of Bella Salema in Estoi, this pretty villa has been comfortably furnished throughout in a traditional style. Designed with outside living in mind, pretty gardens surround the villa and pool creating a wonderful atmosphere in which to relax. Set in a peaceful location with the centre of Faro reachable in just a ten minute drive.
“We loved Isaurinda 1 villa, it was spotlessly clean, the garden was beautiful and imaculately kept, offering shade if you wanted or all day sunbathing. It was quiet and peaceful yet only a 15 min drive to Faro.
The owners Jose and Isaurinda, are lovely people, very helpful and welcoming.
We would love to go again .”
The villa was everything that was promised and much more, especially the grassed outdoor are which was so spacious for the children to play in.

Happy with location , villa and beautiful gardens well appointed ,fruitful orchard, lovely pool. Pleasant unobtrusive owners seen only when needed.
Minor issues only ie broken toilet bin lid, toilet roll and towel holder came off at a touch we sorted those. Outdoor chairs replaced when one broke and someone sustained a leg wound. We would have liked a welcome pack
However a great holiday in sunny Portugal was had by all.

This is a 5 star: 10 point review: We had a lovely time at Isaurinda I: we can not fault this villa one bit, we can not also fault the owners of the villa. From the day we arrived, we received nothing but help from the owners, they allowed us to put our cases in the villa, even though we had arrived many hours earlier than our villa check-in time, as the villa was still being cleaned. Later the same day they allowed us back into villa to put away frozen food which we had bought from the supermarket, which clearly they didn't have to as our confirmed villa entry wasn't till 4pm.
The villa owners were so nice when they came to either change bedding or do the gardens/pool, or any general cleaning they had to come and do. They were so friendly and chatted to us during the time they were there, gave us lots of advice on places we could visit, and also shared alot about themselves, and about the villa we had the pleasure of staying in during our stay.
We had one issue during our stay, and this was only because one of the fans provided had stopped working, and we cant fault the owners response to this, we had made contact with the James villa rep late that afternoon to report this, and were advised nothing could be done till the following day, (this was a very hot evening 35 degrees), we were so surprised that actually that evening the owners turned up at our door, brandishing a brand new fan which they had gone out of their way to buy that evening, and bought it to us. 100% full marks with that one, you cant ask for any better service from the owners for what they did for us.
The villa is a perfect quiet place to relax and chill, and take in the sun and recharge your batteries. It is also not far from many of the other destinations you may like to visit that are around you.
It has wonderful cared for gardens, which provide plenty of space for either the sun bathers, or if you want to find shade and be cool.
The pool is wonderful, clean and always felt warm, no matter what time of day we swam in it, this could be early morning, through to late evening, as it is positioned to catch the sun throughout the day.
The games room, was also an added bonus for both children and adults.
The villa itself was beautiful and you had all the equipment needed for your stay, and I could not think of anything during our stay that we didn't have that may have been needed. There is plenty of room inside the villa, so there is no way any family would feel they are falling over each other. If you had any questions or problems during your stay the owners were so helpful, and a delight to listen to when they would explain things to you. On a personal note also the fact they came to see us the evening before we departed, made our family feel that actually we weren't just another villa booking to them, and that we were a family staying in their villa, and through out our stay they had very well catered for our 2 week stay.

Pros: outside area fabulous, quiet, secluded, had a lovely shaded area with music, garden lights
Cons: can't use toilet paper, pool wasn't cleaned during our stay, altho outside area was fabulous it was spoiled by the stone areas leading out of the villa and the steps as they are like crazy paving but crooked and sharp.
Decor a tad outdated and beds are rock hard. Kettle leaked everywhere and extractor fan didn't work when cooking.
Electric gate broke altho the owner came to fix quickly it couldn't be fixed so had to manually operate.
Don't leave clothes or towels outside or sit on grassed areas at night as the sprinklers come on at 1am and soak everything. There is also a manure like smell that omits while the sprinklers are on at night which is over powering. Shame there are so many trees overhanging the pool as we were constantly having to clean it throughout the day.
Hard to find with directions supplied if you have Google maps best to use it to find anything you need. Nothing really in the area had to drive to albufera on several occasions

Nice quiet location ideal if you're not wanting lively surroundings, although only a quick drive to Faro, Almancil, Vilamoura and Estoi.

This villa was fantastic it's only down side was the lack of airconditioning which I was aware of when booking but are average temperature for the week was 39 degrees but that would not put me off booking again. There was a power cut when we were there and the owners arrived within 30 mins to help it was the area which was out . I have no problemrecommending the villa or James staff
