This villa is a stunning property, with everything you could need. The attention to detail of decor and coordination of colour scheme throughout out made it a tranquil, calming place to stay. Home from home. The cleaner and her husband who maintain the villa were so lovely and helpful, regularly checking we had everything we needed, changing bedding/towels but informed us when they were doing this so no issues with privacy. Surrounding area was pleasant, you need a car, beaches are short drive away, then just carry on up the coast to explore whichever beach is your preference. Near to the villa is a lovely restaurant and a tapas place. A couple of petrol stations that sell essentials are 3 mins walk away, then you have Aldi close drive away 5 mins. The large Algarve shopping centre is 10 minute drive away which I found quite cheap and addictive to pick up a bargain. They have a massive supermarket their too. To be honest this was my first trip to Portugal and loved it, loved the people, the place. This won’t be my only visit. I almost don’t want to do a review of this villa as don’t want this little gem booked up when I try to go again. But fairs fair it was a delightful stay, plus the pool was the icing in the cake 🍰?.
Mr & Mrs L "Thank you for another wonderful holiday. Your UK staff were friendly and very helpful with our booking and it was lovely to visit Escola Velha again. We hope we can do the same next year!"
Mr L, "Just a line to say thank you again for another wonderful holiday at Escola Velha. We hope to be able to book again next year and maybe even stay a little longer! As always your staff were very friendly & helpful with our booking and we would recommend you to all our family and friends. Once again, many thanks"
Mr A "Will certainly book with you again, first class service and accommodation is exactly as described in your brochures. Oh, nearly forgot, the rep and the cleaner were 1st class also".
Mr P "We have been to this area many times in the past and always had villas, but it is fair to say that this was the best villa we have had. The villa itself was in a lovely location, the pool was great and we had many lovely evenings sitting on the beautiful veranda, which was superb in that it had many different seating areas. We are real foodies and the kitchen and barbecue area really catered for that. The kitchen was exceptionally equipped which was a real pleasure and, as people who enjoy cooking, it was a pleasure to have sharp knives and every utensil on hand. We really enjoyed the authenticity of the villa and the owner’s quirky taste – definitely a home from home. Our elder grandson (11) became a master barbecuer whilst we were there and the location of the barbecue meant that you were not excluded from the rest of the family. Our grandson was so impressed that he made a video to show everyone at home. He also really enjoyed the wifi facility. The maid came twice during the week and was very friendly and efficient".
Mrs L "Thank you for another wonderful holiday with The Villa Agency! Everything was perfect including the lovely car we had. We never tire of visiting Escola Velha and we look forward to more holidays there in the future."
Mr G " Thank you. We had a lovely time there again".
Mrs H 'Your agency was a pleasure to do business with and everyone I had dealings with were so helpful. It's so refreshing!! We certainly would considering using your agency in the future.'
