This villa was perfect for 3 generations of our family - lots of space, everything provided that you are likely to need and a very useful information folder (often lacking!) As we arrived late evening we were grateful to be able to order a food pack in advance. The toy box was really useful for my little grandson as you can't bring much on the plane. We had the pool heated, which was well worth it, especially for the little one. We were very lucky with the weather in early May - sunny and very warm for the whole 2 weeks apart from a couple of cloudy/showery days at the end - but I think an unheated pool would have been very 'refreshing' at that time of year! Towels and bedding were changed for us after the first week and some housekeeping done, which was much appreciated. We arranged transfers through the owners, which went without a hitch, and although we intended to hire a car for a couple of days we didn't need to - local buses are frequent and we also discovered a zoo bus that went from the Marina - although it did break down on the way! A couple of cars soon arrived to take us the rest of the way, and we weren't charged for the trip, which we didn't expect. The zoo is just the right size for a couple of hours. The info about restaurants etc was really useful. We had several meals at the two places on the beach as they were so convenient. The sandy beach is lovely and great for small children as lots of pools are left when the tide goes out. We had a couple of very tasty takeaways from the local Indian restaurant just before the Triangulo restaurant (they deliver). The clifftop restaurant, O Comilo, about 15 mins walk away, was our favourite - lovely views. Our favourite place to eat in town was The Garden - pretty setting, welcoming and very reasonable. It is a bit of a hike back uphill from the town and beach and my sons took a taxi back from the Intermarche (20 mins walk)when they did a bigger shop, but the villa really is very conveniently located, in a quiet area, with two small supermarkets that stock most things a few minutes walk away. A very successful and relaxing holiday!
