The Algarve usually conjures up images of a quality tourist destination and this is well deserved with the highest amount of sunshine in Europe, respect for tradition and the environment and focus on relaxing leisure time.
Our villas are both situated in the hamlet Monte Judeo which is about 45 mins drive on the motorway from Faro. Whilst the location lends itself to a tranquil holiday - adjacent to the Algarve's version of green belt restricted countryside - it is only 10 minutes drive from Alvor with it's stunning beach, historic streets, numerous restaurants and colourful nightlife.
Since the villas are predominantly self-catering, we do provide a free welcome pack to help you through the first breakfast and lunch. Rest assured though, that there is a selection of large and smaller supermarkets within easy reach but a highly welcome alternative, is an evening meal cooked on-site at your request.
Taxi's are very inexpensive and plentiful making a really relaxing holiday for everyone. This includes those with restricted mobility as we have built various features to allow full disabled access.
The focus of each villa is their pool and terraces. Villa Phoenix has one of the largest private pools in the Algarve whilst Villa Citrus has a larger than average pool at 10m by 6m. The pool terraces are specifically designed to be spacious with enough sun loungers for all guests, umbrellas or shade yet also possess numerous cosy spots for quiet time or intimate chats.
Villa Phoenix includes a stunning waterfall spa, perfect for little ones or being very decadent with a glass of bubbles. Not to be outdone, Villa Citrus incorporates a designer tiled paddling pool. Both villas have thermal pool covers which maintain a very pleasant pool temperature for most of the year.
Our villas are only 300 metres apart and as a consequence some of our guests have taken both villas at the same time when attending weddings or other events in the Algarve.
Events are a common theme at either of the villas, at which we have had many celebrations such as significant birthdays, wedding anniversaries and retirement holidays. We particularly welcome multi-generational groups where grandparents can indulge the grandchildren whilst catching up with their busy children and in-laws.
Each villa has 4 double bedrooms each of which is en-suite. All of the bathrooms have been renovated in the last few years with luxury fittings and marble top counters. All of the bedrooms are themed to make it easier for guests to navigate at the end of the day and fall into English sized beds. On request, we can easily provide cots, high chairs or z-beds for our smaller guests.
The villas are completed by a huge sitting and dining room with kitchens equipped to the highest standard one would expect in their own home. There is air-conditioning in all of the bedrooms and sitting rooms whilst for the shoulder seasons, the open wood fire in the sitting room is a real feature. Connection to home is easily maintained by free WiFi and satellite TV.
As one would expect with luxury accommodation we provide not only bathroom towels but also pool towels. We also provide complimentary products for laundry and around the kitchen. There is a change of towels together with a light clean mid-week and for those with an extended stay, a more substantial clean weekly; all included in the price.
Finally, both villas have their own landscaped and fenced gardens of up to 1 1/2 acres each with off-road parking.
Oh and parents and grandparents can have piece of mind with their smaller charges who, if not fully occupied by the toy boxes in and out, can safely play in the gardens.
Our guiding philosophy is "attention to detail", which is applied in full measure to our holiday villas to try and meet the highest standards. To that end both villas hold tourist accommodation licences (numbers 3040/AL & 3027/AL) meeting in full the stringent tourist requirements.
