Cash Lucille has everything that you could want. It is in a very quiet and private location on an impressive estate of outstandingly maintained properties. It has a modern feel with excellent fixtures and fittings. A chair in the bedrooms would not go amiss and a few more mugs for tea / coffee would be helpful, but these are small observations rather than major irritants. We enjoyed an outstanding week in this lovely home.

Lovely villa. Stunning views. Suffers from the wind as it's located at the top of the hill although pool area is more sheltered so you can sit around the pool in comfort. Unfortunately, the pool and jacuzzi were too cold to swim in. We would have paid for pool heating in advance if it had been recommended for mid September but as we were only there for a week and it would have taken days to heat up the pool, it was too late to organise it once we were there. This was a big disappointment especially as the sea was too cold to swim in at that time of year. The kitchen is well equipped although missing some basic cooking utensils which we bought while we were there.

Very nice villa, only complaint was that both restaurants on resort were not accessible on the Saturday night because of private golf function. Not acceptable as we should have been made aware. Spoiled the holiday for me

Amazing beautiful huge villa with pool, jacuzzi and games room. Had everything you need for a family holiday and more. Furnishings and fittings to a v high standard. Although there were 10 of us,we never felt on top of each other. Cleverly designed so the breeze was barely felt. Stunning views across the golf course. Our only niggle was with the initial pool temperature as it was chilly, but with a few repeated requests this was rectified and was lovely.

One of the better villas we have visited in recent years. We visited the first week in September. The drive from Faro is about 80 minutes along the A22. This is toll road with no toll booths - you need to have the pre-paid eTag which are fitted to hire cars. About €2 per day hire option plus the tolls - about €7 each way from Faro to far west end of A22. At the villa, the pool was clean and not over chlorinated (shallow end 1.2m, deep end 2.3m). The rooms were all well appointed with recent decor each with their own en-suite except the upstairs bedroom which we did not use. The beds were medium firm - not quite perfect for us but probably fine for most. Internet access was good for Netflix streaming in the lounge (we took out own Fire Stick) and fine for browsing upstairs. Wifi does not reach the downstairs bedrooms but not really an issue. Mobile Phone reception is 3G and was good for us throughout the house. The TV is a good sized HD ready 720p with 1 HDMI. Satellite has has HD BBC1, 2, 4, ITV and C4. A medium sized Intermarche is a short drive (couple of miles) away and has everything you need. We tried the on-site Italian restaurant (just on the right as you enter the resort) - good value for money - pizza, pasta etc. We paid €80 including 10% tip for 4 sit down meals with starters and 2 rounds of soft drinks. We also has takeout another night - 4 pizzas and 4 garlic breads - €66 (takeout available 6pm to 10pm). We didn't use any of the other golf or salon amenities as our break we a sun/pool chill trip.
