We had a great stay at Villa dos Sonhos. A great base for a large group with easy access to the Algarve.

What a place 15 of us stayed at this stunning villa and it really does have everything you could wish for. We didn't have a car and after the walk down to the station on the first night (this took about 25 minutes), we got some taxi drivers numbers and used these for the whole four days and we had no trouble getting about. But before we arrived Victor was amazing and once we were there Tracy was always close by, we didn't have any issues while at the property and everything really is already there to make your stay so comfortable. We looked at a few properties before booking this one and we most defiantly picked the best it was cracking value for money and we are all looking at booking again for next year, if thee wives let us :-)

We were a family of 13 staying at the villa, age range from 4 to 64! The villa is quietly tucked away and was difficult to find the first time around but once we knew the way in it was easy. Our advice would be to stick to the main Tarmac roads!! The villa is very spacious and plenty of room for us all. Simple deco and clean and tidy. Victor was there to welcome us and show us around the villa, there is a file which details all you need to know along with details for supermarkets, beaches, restaurants.
BBQ area was spacious enough with a small outside sink, we had 3 BBQ during our 7 night stay! Kitchen area was fully equipped and enough for the whole family, it helps to have the 2nd fridge/freezer to keep all our drinks cool.
For that "get away from it all" room there is an area on the top floor which opens up to more private outside space. Let's not forget the games room. Adults and kids had fun downstairs in the games room, enough to keep the whole family entertained. Although no air con, the large room was cool enough.
The minor negative points about the villa was, the electric did trip a few times but easily fixed, the smoke alarms did beep for 2 days on and off (low battery we think) and the bedrooms at the lower ground floor only had a urinal in the bathroom, not great for kids or the ladies. But minor points and didn't stop us from having a good time at the villa.
We would recommend to others, communication with Victor was good, always replied to emails and messages. Car hire is necessary to be able to get around easily.

We had a fantastic holiday. The villa was perfect to a lovely standard and had lovely grounds and pool. We have stayed in Portugal many times before amd this is one of the nicest villas we have stayed in. You will need to hire a car if you stay here.

13 of us stayed in this amazing villa which catered for us all (age 6- mid 50's)It had absolutely everything there to keep us all occupied, pool , games room, wi-if , music. Car is essential as the villa is situated very out of the way but once we got our bearings, shops, bars/restaurants , beach and waterpark was just a short drive away. A few minor problems occurred on our first day but Tracy (lady who looks after the villa ) was very helpful to get them sorted and Victor (owner of the villa) was very supportive too. Defiantly great value, one of our best holidays and would certainly recommend to others.

Wow, what a place! We were a family of 10 staying in the villa, with a baby. We were amazed at how the owners had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. There were loads of DVDs for the kids to watch which kept them amused on many evenings! The kitchen was very well equipped and the 2nd drinks fridge was great. The games room was amazing, something for all the family, including a great selection of board games. Every bedroom was spacious and the bathrooms were lovely. The pool was perfect although we couldn't work out how to clean it (after a few days it needed a clean) it may be worth putting something in the welcome booklet about this. Just a couple of minor improvements- the alarm on the landing beeps and there is a slight smell of sewerage in the bedroom on the ground floor. The electric did trip a few times each day but was easily fixed and I guess this is to be expected given the location. The villa was absolutely perfect for our family holiday, so spacious and the instructions from the owner made it easy to find. Victor the owner always replied to emails and called us to make sure everything was ok when we arrived. There are supermarkets (Aldi and Lidl) only 15 mins away and stocked everything we needed. I would recommend this villa to anyone and I'm sure we'll be coming back soon! Thank you!

Fantastic stay at this amazing villa.
Its has everything you would want in a villa and more, especially the games room.
Really high spec kitchen and living area.
Views are superb.
You definitely need a car to get in and out of the village, its is quite far out from everything but It didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves.
Would definitely stay again with a large party.

The villa is very out of the way and we did have trouble finding it (even with directions!) but on arrival we were really happy. The villa is a fabulous size and extremely comfortable and all our party we're very happy with it. Although we did have a few problems with some doors and aircon it didn't detract from our enjoyment. Victor the owner is very easy to deal with and responds quickly to any questions. I would definitely recommend this villa.

The property is lovely and very spacious. The pool and games rooms are really nice and provided many entertaining days and nights. The kitchen and BBQ are nice and well equipped. The villa is totally isolated and nothing is within walking distance. It is literally at the end of a nameless dirt tracks and therefore very difficult to find. Albuferia town is about a 20 minute drive away. The property barely had any hot water all week, most of our party had cold showers and by Thursday, the pool was very dirty, unfortunately this was not cleaned (other than by us). We had a nice time, but some things could be improved, especially for the cost.

Just came back from a week at viila dos sonhas and well what a fantastic Villa this is!
Going in a group of 11 this villa is the perfect size to spend quailty time with family and freinds.
i was pleasantly surprised with all the things that are available in the villa, little things like a salad spinner,food covers ,ect the house is very well catered forwith wi-if , music, tvs etc.
I would say a Car is essential if theres more than 5 people, having to constantly get x2 mini buses can be costly as the villa is situated out of the way.
Overall best villa ive rented, and thanks again both again Tracy (lady who looks after the villa )receiving us early! and Victor (owner of the villa) for being so accomadating with the early arrival and late departure!
We had a wonderful hoilday:)

We had a great time at Village Dos Sonhos with two families. Convenient location to visit the Algarve. Nice peaceful location.
The villa has great facilities, the games room was a great way to keep occupied. The local representative, Tracy was very helpful and attentive to any concerns.
Only downside was lack of shade by the pool area, compensated by a great barbecue area, which was clean and well looked after.
Would highly recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful location with all homely comforts.
