      Although isolated which meant someone always had to drive, we really appreciated the beautiful scenery and area.

    • Mr Hatch, May 2013

      Like living in a Millionaires villa. Stunning

    • Mr Henry, April 2013

      The villa is in a beautiful rural mountain location with stunning scenery. It's an extremely quite area but you are not isolated. There is easy access to Portimao and main roads. It is a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday.

    • Mrs Morton, April 2013

      The villa was huge and high spec. The entrance hall was impressive and a nice place to sit with a view down into the valley. We loved staying at the villa which had every modern convenience. It was in a quiet and secluded position which was just what we wanted. The table tennis table was a bonus as we did have two rainy days. The only negative point was that although the villa was absolutely spointless on arrival the maid only came once to change the towels, not the linen. So we did run out of loo rolls and had to empty the bins ourselves. Although this was not a problem I did think that as the villa was a Best of James the maid should have changed the bed linen. But overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend this villa.

    • Mr Parkinson, August 2012

      villa was amazing, even better that described, we were all so shocked when we first walked through the door at the size and look of the villa, would definately recomend visiting this villa.

    • Mr Parkinson, August 2012

      lovely little restaurant at the bottom of the hill to the villa called rouxinol, just a stone throw away. great service and food

    • Mr Colmer, August 2012

      This new villa is very well appointed with plenty of room if fully utilised. It is very quiet and not too far from the coast. My only problem was that my "sports" MPV (we drove down) Grounded out trying to get in and out of the electric gates. I guess this would not be a problem with a hire car.

    • Mr Johnston, July 2012

      Fantastic standard of accommodation! Beautiful house that was spotless on our arrival.

    • Mr Johnston, July 2012

      We had a fantastic holiday and felt everything was well organised and well presented. The accommodation was amazing and spotless! I couldn't recommend the experience enough! It's such a relief when everything is even better than you hoped it would be!

    • Mr Jeffs, July 2012

      Excellent villa. High quality. The pool could've been heated but this is being extremely picky!

    • Mr Evans, May 2012

      The villa was amazing-fantastic facilities and beautiful setting.

    • Mrs Gale, May 2012

      It was amazing! Would definitely stay here again - it has everything and quite honestly was well above the quality that we expected. One thing that was not mentioned on the website is that it has a table tennis table in the double garage and a basket ball hoop in the garden which makes it especially good for children. My daughter in law's comment was 'It is like a millionaire's mansion'.

    • Mr Tompkins, May 2012

      Perfect place to relax and get away. The mountain region is outstanding, It would have helped with some local information in the villa, ie Intermache supermarket in Monchique.

Leeds Family (the eldest child is at school)
Wow! The Olive Tree was so much better than the pictures on the website! Very spacious but also very private. There is a local neighbour who would basically have to stand right up against the 6ft fence to see in, so there is a real feel of privacy. Views are lovely and a short walk along the road they get even better. It's a short drive to everything you need, so best of both. Total privacy and quiet but still close to essentials.

Some reviews say the pool is cold and the beds hard. The beds are firm, but we all slept very well on them. The pool is the same temperature as any other non-heated pool we've had and it also uses a very nice filtration system that doesn't leave you stinking of chlorine.

We selected the box for a visit from the local Rep. Maureen was fantastic, clearly a lot of local knowledge and her advice was spot on. We had 4 adults and 2 young children. She recommended a visit to Monte Clérigo Beach which really was lovely, just a small place with 3 cafes a few homes and a fantastic beach. Well worth the cross country drive to reach it. Zoomarine was also a god call, very nice theme park / zoo especially if you have young kids.

My only minor gripe would be the housekeeping. We didn't see anyone for the whole week, towels were supposed to be changed half way through but they weren't. There were no basic cleaning supplies for us to use, not even a bin bag, and I felt that for the standard of Villa either basic supplies or a mid week clean would have been expected. Same for the pool, in previous villas we've had someone come in every morning before we got up to check the pool but not here. Not that it really needed it I suppose.

Overall, I would go back next week if I could !!!

It was a lovely villa , only big issue was the beds ! They were so hard I think they must have bought them from Colditz !
We would happily go again but for this.
