Matched our expectations *****

Lovely place, with super view over the valley and the ocean, very clean and a super pool (which we asked to be heated). The terrasse outside is great for barbecues and family dinners.

Parfait *****

La villa est en tous points conforme à l annonce. Très belle prestation. Un petit bémol sur l eau chaude quasi inexistante. Sans doute du à une fuite du ballon du toit. Nous l avons signalé un à l'agent sur place qui n'a malheureusement pas répondu. Sinon séjour parfait. Nous reviendrons.

10/24/2019 at 2:30 PM

Salut Evelyne Merci pour l'examen aimable. Nous sommes vraiment heureux que vous avez apprécié la Villa. Le réservoir d'eau sur le toit était défectueux et a maintenant été complètement remplacé. Cordialement David

Huge villa, nice neighbourhood *****

Our family of 10 adults had plenty of space at this well-equipped, beautiful house. Nice and big swimming pool was heated, which was very nice in October. Everything worked out very smoothly with both the owner and the management even the first night when we arrived quite late. Thank you for that, David and Alistair! It is easy to recommend this villa to everyone looking for a big house at a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood.

Entspannter Familienurlaub *****

Wir, 8 Personen und ein Baby haben uns in diesem großzügigen Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Ausstattung entspricht der Beschreibung und lässt keine Wünsche offen (Babybett ist auch vorhanden). Einen kleinen Verbesserungsvorschlag: Die Kaffeemaschine ist für 8 Kaffeetrinker nicht ausreichend😊

Perfect villa for our large group *****

The property and its contents exceeded our expectations. It contained everything we needed for our stay. We found the pool a little cold for the first couple of days but bath temperature with the heating on. Quiet location but convenient- it was ideal for us.

Perfect spot on The Algarve coast *****

This House is amazing and situated perfectly for both going to the Beach and exploring the coastline. A very good and friendly restaurant just a short walk away Museo de Salgados added to the whole experience in a very nice Way. The House itself is spacious, The pool is fantastic and the barbecue area perfect. We had a wonderful time here.

Stephen - Stay 6 July 2019

Private, 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom villa with views of sea and nature reserve *****

Its not often a property when seen first hand actually out does the description and photos, this villa did just that. Every room was decorated and furnished to a high standard and for nine adult family members there was masses of room. The pool and grounds were well looked after and there was plenty of patio furniture and pool items. Most evenings were spent enjoying a drink outside, around the large table. Down in the converted garage was a pool table, table tennis and a dart board, these were all in great condition (there are plenty of darts but bring your own flights). One thing I was concerned about was transport. After reading some horror stories about car hire from Faro I decided not to bother. Booked airport transfers with Suntransfers and then used Uber cars for the rest of the time. Since the villa is not in the center of town we used 2-4 ubers a day and I still saved half the cost of renting. There are some great restaurants nearby and the local Aldi is very handy and cheap. This is the only villa we've rented in southern Europe that did not have a single creepie crawly visitor inside. Overall the villa made our stay so enjoyable, we all fell in love with Portugal, the friendly people and great weather.

Owner Response:

Hi Stephen

Thank you for spending the time to write a review, its much appreciated. I agree the option of car rental and taxi/transport and Uber are often better than rental, although I have never had any problems with the car rental agencies in Faro. Really pleased your enjoyed your stay. Thanks again David

Absolutely brilliant villa with everything you need *****

 Left on Jul 12, 2019 for a stay in Jun 2019

The location is brilliant, away from the hustle and bustle of the beach but closer enough to be able to get there easily. Really nice restaurants just a short walk away or a super cheap uber ride to ones further afield. Highly recommend using Uber, comes quickly and many around the area of the villa. The villa itself is fantastic, beautiful fittings and had more than enough room for the 8 of us. It has everything you need, there was genuinely nothing that was missing or we needed that was not available. Nice large and good depth for a pool, temperature was spot on for June. Spacious outside area with 2 BBQ's which came in really handy when catering for 8 of us. Felt extremely safe with the gates, security alarms and being on a private estate. Could not recommend this villa enough, the owners and management catered to our every need. Thanks for such a great stay and we would love to come back.

Truly Wonderful *****

We have recently returned from Portugal and are itching to get back. Villa is even better up close and personal. A truly wonderful holiday. So much information is provided of what to do in Portugal. Alistair the property manager was a great help and a massive short to Lordes our airport pick up. If every taxi driver was like her you’d never walk anywhere! We did lots of exploring but whenever we needed her to pick us up she was there. Back to the villa....Beautiful views and totally immaculate. You could hear a pin drop at night. The most peaceful sleep considering you’re not in your own bed. Anyway don’t just listen to it!

Amazing Home, Fabulous Location, Great Owner/Property Manager *****

We stayed for almost 2 weeks in December over the holidays. The home was perfect for extended family of 7 adults - everyone had ample room and private baths. The common spaces fit all of us easily as we prepared fantastic meals and enjoyed great wines. Gourmet kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed sunsets on the balcony, the pool (we paid to heat it) was a great hit, and walks to the beach (pretty much deserted). We also went to Seville for 2 days (2 hour drive), and did plenty of hiking in Monchique and Foia (mountians) and Lagos (beach). One of our best vacations ever. Owner David was responsive and Property Manager Alistair gave us great tips.

We have just returned from Villa Joanna Marie. The villa is more than large enough for 6 adults and 4 children, including a baby. It had everything we needed and we truly had a fabulous time. The pool was the perfect size and we paid extra to have it heated, which I would say is a must as we went in April! The bedrooms are a great size and we all slept very comfortably. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance which were very, very good. I really can't recommend this villa enough, we had a wonderful holiday, but never felt as though we were on top of each other.

This villa is huge, and beautifully clean. Great layout inside plenty big enough for at least ten to stay comfortably. Beds comfy and air conditioning quiet and efficient. Super well equipped kitchen and choice of three areas to eat together in. The pool is great we didn't pay the extra to heat it in July and it was fine. the addition of pool table, table tennis and darts really made the this villa stand out from others. St in pretty gardens and private. We did need a car to do anything, though we did not investigate local buses which may perhaps work for you. This was the perfect venue for a relaxing pool holiday. Only forty minutes from Faro airport maximising the length of your holiday without lengthy transfers. No need to pack towels as plenty for both bathrooms and pool, hairdryers in upstairs bathrooms also. Supermarkets a short drive away. Would recommend.

We had a fantastic family holiday at this villa. It was very spacious, and it never felt like any of us were getting under each other's feet (there was 10 of us). We opted for the pool heating, and so glad we did, the children played in the pool all day, and even went for nighttime swims before bed, the pool was warm enough for that too! The TV package was great, all recent movies and sports etc. Great for nights when the kids went to bed early and the adults wanted to relax. The new pool table was a hit with the older ones in our party too. All in all, this is a very well equipped villa, and we would like to return again at some point.

Fabulous *****

Date of Stay

4 Mar 2017

We stayed here for a week for my daughters 21st birthday and the villa delivered on every level. This villa is the best we have ever stayed in, the furnishings and finish are fantastic. I find when you book a holiday the accommodation never quite lives up to the brochure, not here, this villa is exactly as described. Beautiful surroundings, furnishings and facilities. As it was March we had the pool heated which was a bonus as we probably would not have been able to use it. We were in it all the time. The beach at Gale (nearest)was great with a lovely cocktail bar/restaurant. Short walk from the villa are 2 restaurants one is a small pizza/pasta place (prima pasta) who accommodated 10 of us on a Saturday without a booking, they are English owners who it turns out came from our hometown. Fabulous but would probably need to book in higher season. The other restaurant (Museu Dos Salgados) is more expensive but well worth it the service and food are top quality. Wine waiter is very knowledgeable and very attentive (never had to top our own wine glasses up)Some dishes you have to give 24hr notice so do look at the menu before you go. The Agents who manage the villa and David the owner are very helpful and if you have a problem they solve it swiftly. All the details you need for the agents are there at the villa as are very comprehensive booklets that cover everything you will need to know whilst you are there. We had a fabulous time here and would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a quiet holiday in a beautiful villa. If I could give it 10 stars I would, in fact I am now trying to round up 8 more people to go back with

To the villa - we were a group of 5 adults, one teenager and one small child varying in ages from 2 to 73 - the villa comfortably housed us all. On a secluded little estate ( with perhaps 5-6 other villas, but not on top of each other), with brilliant access to the wonderful local beaches ( one is 5 min drive) restaurants (Prima pasta is in walking distance and has very homely Italian non pretentious food), supermarkets and attractions. Immaculately furnished with every convenience you could wish for. We have stayed a lot of villas in Europe in the last ten years and this is in the top three. We will be back.

The Villa is amazing set in a very quiet location. But within easy reach of restaurants, shops and beaches nearby. The owners have thought of everything you would need for a Villa Holiday very well equipped kitchen, plenty of space for all of us not to be on top of each other. Three different dining areas, plenty of sunbeds. Bedrooms are spacious. Plenty enough towels for the pool side and the bathrooms. The utility room is bigger than my kitchen. Taxis are very reasonable for going in to Albufeira Car is a must for shopping and visiting the beaches around the coast. We used the Museu restaurant and the food and service were excellent they also have a childrens' menu that offers decent food, not chips with everything!! One suggestion , a carton of milk and a bottle of water in the fridge would be nice for arrivals. Alistair McGregor is very helpful at the agency office, we booked golf with him and a hire car, we also had a problem with the swimming pool which he came out and checked for us he arranged for it to be cleaned within an hour of his visit. Would recommend this Villa and I am sure we would all love to return for another holiday in the future .

This villa is simply beautiful. We were a group of 9 and the property had plenty of space for all of us. Huge house with all amenities you could ever need: the utility room alone is the size of a large kitchen! The pool and outdoor area is lovely; aside from the sun loungers, there is table outside for evening meals as well as a barbecue. There is a new table tennis table in the garage which was well used during our stay. Downstairs = 2 Twin rooms; Upstairs = 3 Double bedrooms (very large). I would highly recommend hiring a car for this property. The location is beautiful and quiet, but there aren't many things that are walking distance. The nearest beach is around a 30-40minute walk (walk through the hotel complex near the beach). The nearest supermarket is about 30mins walk. There are a range of nearby restaurants however (5-10mins). We all would definitely recommend staying at this villa!

My Response

Thank you very much for your review, so glad you had a great time. We also recommend a car, its relatively cheap and allows you to visit many of the smaller beautiful beaches along the coast.

What a fantastic place. We stayed here in December 2015 with our children and our extended family. Lovely large spaces, very well equipped (with so many towels both for bathrooms and pool, which is not often the case), cupboard and wardrobe space, crockery and kitchen utensils etc etc. Washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Its in a great location, close to beaches and shops but secluded enough to be private and quiet. Pool is large, plenty of sun beds and inside CD, DVD players, and also full english sky TV (which is not something you always want on holiday but for the children is fantastic). We were lucky to have lovely 20 degree weather in December. Such a lovely place, cannot wait for the next visit.

La casa es perfecta para unas vacaciones. Estuvimos varias amigas y la verdad que la casa es una maravilla. Cada habitación tiene su cuarto de baño dentro y un baño más de cortesia en la planta baja. Todo correcto, estupenda cocina que no falta ningún detalle. Tiene incluso toallas para la piscina y además el detalle de tener leña para la chimenea. Tan solo por poner algún incoveniente, es que no conseguimos coger los canales de televión. Por lo demás, todo perfecto Muchas gracias

We stayed here, in February, and were so pleased we had chosen Villa Joanna Marie. The photos do not do it justice! The pool is fantastic, and was well used during our stay, as the weather was wonderful. The villa is spacious, clean and modern, with five bedrooms to choose from, two being on the ground floor, and all with en-suites. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything you could need, and lots of cupboard space. It is good to be able to eat in the kitchen too. The utility room houses both a washing machine and tumble drier, which is really useful. Having UK programmes available on the TV was an added bonus, and plenty of DVDs available, although we didn't get time to watch any films. There is a new table tennis table in the garage/basement. All in all, a lovely house, with a stunning interior. We will definitely visit again.
