Fantastic Villa

Where to begin with our praise of you and your lovely wife. We have been visiting Villa Camaleao for 10 consecutive years and each time we have arrived something new and wonderful has been added to the facilities which were gorgeous to start with. The villa is spotless and very welcoming and comfortable and the garden is fabulous. It is spacious, giving 12 people plenty of room both indoors and out. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Steve and Janie. They move beds and re-organise the furniture to suit our needs. Whether we need a taxi or a physiotherapist, they know where to find one. Their patience is endless! Their attention to detail is amazing, everything in the house and the garden is planned to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The villa is in a very convenient spot, just 5 minutes off the main N?? There is good shopping and the beach about 10 minutes away. The most resounding recommendation I can give to this property is that we have been going there for 11 consecutive holidays and all the family agree that we would not wish to go anywhere else on the Algarve.

Luxury villa holiday in the Algarve

We have visited this villa more than once and we are more than happy to recommend this property as an ideal place to relax soak up the sun and have an amazing holiday. It is close to water parks, shopping areas, golf and the beach is close by, but it is also in an area of complete privacy and tranquillity for those who just want to soak up the sun. Terraces and pools are fantastic, private with your own bar which is perfect and suited us fine and the interior of the villa is what you would expect from a luxury resort especially the bathrooms, and all areas are spotlessly clean. On arrival you get a nice warm welcome from the owners who go out of their way to make sure your holiday is special and nothing is too much trouble to them. Thank you to the owners Steve and Janie for always making us feel welcome and look forward to returning again to see you both in the Algarve.

I have stayed in this villa many times over the years, most recently March this year. One of the big advantages, is the owners live in Portugal so manage everything themselves. This shows in the attention to detail and everytime I go there is something new to admire, it is obviously a labour of love. It is always spotlessly clean inside and out and I could spent all the time in the fantastic outside space by the pools. It is quiet and tranquill and the perfect place to unwind and de-stress. When you do venture out there are many beaches, bars and restaurants close by.

Fantastic villa with beautiful grounds in a secluded rural location, the villa is kept to a very high standard of cleanliness and furnished beautifully through out. The owners Janie and Steve are great hosts and make guests most welcome. We have returned on an annual basis for the past 13 years and will be returning again this year. I would highly recommend a stay.

The pool and pool area is a great place to relax and all the gardens beautifully maintained. A great place for a family or group holiday. The villa owners Janie and Steve did everything they could to make our stay as restful and as relaxing as possible. We would definitely recommend this villa

Just perfect...........

Recently returned from our holiday on the Algarve in Villa Camaleao. The villa provided the perfect setting for our family reunion holiday. Steve and Janie were extremely helpful hosts and it's obvious that they take great pride and pleasure maintaining the villa and outdoor areas to such a high standard. It's location is peaceful and private yet amenities such as shops, beaches, golf courses and water parks are all within easy driving distance. Highly recommended............Thanks again Steve & Janie.

Arrived on the 19th July 2014 with a very warm welcome from Janie & Steve . We had 13 adults in our party and the villa had plenty of space for all of us plus more. The villa is of very high standard and so is the out side area . The pools are spotless and there is plenty of sunbeds and seating area for everyone. You are not far from the main towns ,waterparks beaches ect, you do need a car. There is a couple of restaurant in walking distance one of them we used which was ti Teresa which was very nice and very good value. All in all We would go there again and definitely recommend this villa.

I stayed for 2 weeks in this fantastic villa in August. We had 6 children aged 2-11years and it was such a child friendly place. The 2 swimming pools were a hit and having the 2nd, small heated pool was so handy for the younger children. Steve and Janie were fantastic hosts and helped with anything we needed. They even organised a birthday cake for my son. The house itself is beautifully kept with very luxurious bathrooms in particular. The outside areas were amazing, plenty of seating spaces to find both sun and shade. We didn't hire a car and I don't think you'd need to, the taxi service is great and very reliable. All the local taxis know the villa and we're great. All in all a fantastic place that I would highly recommend. We have already booked again for next year! Thanks Steve and Janie ... See you next year.

Perfect!!

Recently returned from a fabulous two weeks at this villa. It is ideally placed, in a peaceful and tranquil spot, a short distance from the N125 that gives access to all that this part of the Algarve has to offer (whilst not essential I would recommend car hire). We arrived to a warm welcome from the villa owners, Steve & Janie, who presented a meticulously cleaned property. The villa is modern, comfortable and well appointed however what makes this villa is the outdoor space which was just superb. The several children in the party loved jumping from one pool into the other whilst the adults chilled out on the plentiful sunbeds or in the several shaded areas. Evenings were spent enjoying long, lazy group dinners on the terrace and helping ourselves to the honesty bar (nice touch!). Communications with Steve & Janie prior to our visit were excellent and they proved to be great hosts who went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay with ideas, recommendations and practical help. It is little surprise that this villa appears to attract much repeat business. I can thoroughly recommend the Villa Camaleao for a perfect holiday and also look forward to returning at some point in the future.

As part of the group in the last review, I can only repeat and agree with everything that was said about this Villa and the owners. This is the second time we have used a large villa in the Algarve for a big group holiday and this villa out shines the previous one on all counts, and we thought that one was awesome. As we drove up the gravel drive, we thought we had the wrong location as it seemed too good. The electronic, high gates opened and we drove up the sweeping drive to be met by Steve and Janie. The girls went off to do what girls do (look at rooms and beds etc) whilst the boys went to the outside bar and shared a cold beer with Steve. With 7 kids aged 8 - 18 months security and safety around the villa were an important feature for us. It couldnt have been better. The villa sits in its own grounds with high walls and secure gates. The owners have a small house away from the main villa but close enough to keep an eye on anyone who shouldn't be there. All the patio doors could be securely locked and further secured with locked shutters. Everything that you could wish for was available within the villa and even when we jokingly mentioned that a pizza cutter would be good, a new one appeared the next day. A truly fantastic holiday that was made by a truly awesome villa. In a selfish way I hope the villa doesnt become too popular as it could mean we wont be able to book again in the future if the availability becomes hard to find 🙂 Thanks again guys. Tim, Sonia & Ella

Excellent all round

If you've read any of the other reviews you won't be surprised at what I have to say. A wonderful villa with everything you need. The pools and all the other facilities were superb. The hosts, Steve and Janie, were brilliant. They were always there when you needed them, including giving us a few lifts to and from the supermarket which was above and beyond the call of duty. And they seemed to genuinely care that we had a good time. As a group of fourteen friends, we found it spacious enough and with plenty of bathrooms, seating areas and kitchen facilities. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It was also immaculately clean when we arrived and with a fully stocked bar - what more could you ask for? It's just a shame we're not still there.

We booked 2 weeks with 6 adults and 5 teenagers in our group. We were really impressed with the villa and the outside pool area. Steve & Janie were there to greet us and stayed in touch throughout the 2 weeks to help in any way they could. Both have become good friends and we are looking forward to returning very soon. The villa is situated in a quiet area that made the whole 2 weeks very relaxing. The pool was used every day and night and a wonderful area around the villa to have BBQ's and chill by the bar. A couple of cars helped us get around for the shopping, visiting the algarve beaches and golf. We would all strongly recommend Villa Camaleao.

Fabulous getaway

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at Villa Camaleao. We were 4 couples all with young children (ages ranged from 8 months to 5 years) and we couldn't have picked a better property. Steve and Janie, the owners, were very helpful in the run up to the holiday with the various questions we had. We received a warm welcome upon arrival and the villa was spotlessly clean. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious, with plenty of room for everyone. The villa is tucked away in a quiet area, so no disturbances at night, although we were only a short drive away from all the amenities we required. The villa was well equipped and we particularly enjoyed the outside space and the two pools. Steve and Janie were very helpful and even popped round mid-week to have a tidy round and refresh our towels. We couldn't have asked for more from our accommodation or the owners and I would not hesitate to book again should we wish to return to Portugal in the future. As for location, we were able to get out and about with relative ease, although I would say that a car is a must as we found we needed to go to the supermarket almost daily with such a large group of people to feed, so unless you want to be organising taxis all the time, bear that in mind. With such a large number of children, we weren't too fussed about going out daily, so the location suited us well because it was peaceful with plenty of outdoor space, which the children loved. All in all a great place with friendly, helpful owners. Thank you!

Excellent facilities and immaculate

We had brilliant family holiday at this villa, 9 adults, 3 children and 1 baby. We arrived late on Saturday evening and were met by Steve & Janie the owners, who had arranged a BBQ for us due to our late arrival. They both were really help full throughout our stay and really lovely people. The villa certainly kept us entertained with the bar facility for the adults, table tennis, pool table, table football etc... Plus 2 well maintained (by the good looking pool boy Steve!) and immaculately clean pools (one with waterfall). The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained. Location was also spot on with the beach and supermarket/shops 5 mins away. We hired one car between us all for the week for shopping and beach runs, which worked out fine. Thoroughly recommend this villa and will be returning, top draw!

Excellent property Fantastic owners

Believe the reviews their not lying, If you manage to get booked into this villa your very lucky people. We were a group of 14 adults celebrating my birthday, Steve and Janie organised a surprise party at a beach bar followed by an amazing restaurant who brought out a cake in my teams colours again organised by Steve and Janie. Their willingness to ensure their guests enjoy themselves is legendary just read the reviews, but they do it as part of your group not as a travel agent or guide would and that made it special. Don't go for a week you'll leave wanting more go for two as we did.

Amazing villa

This villa is outstanding, it has absolutely everything you can want and need and more. There was 14 in our party and there was more than enough room for all of us, not once did we feel we were in each other's way. Steve and Janie were wonderful, they made our stay from lovely to perfect. Location is perfect for what we wanted, five minutes by car into town. We didn't hire a car as the taxi firm that Steve and Janie arranged for our transfers, were brilliant so we used them for the entire week. We have booked to go back next year and can not wait! Thank you Steve and Janie for our lovely holiday! Faye and matt welsher and co xxxxx

This villa is simply magnificent. Steve and Janie made us feel so welcome and instantly relaxed the moment we arrived at the Villa. The location is excellent. We were a group of 10 (Young Professionals) and Steve and Janie were so helpful; from the arranging of our transfer / taxi service all week and for the endless, wonderful recommendations from beaches to visit and bars and restaurants to eat and drink at. We weren't let down once and I couldn't recommend this villa or the owners highly enough. 10 out of 10 and I would love to come back and visit again. Thank you so much for everything Steve and Janie.

Amazing. Amazing. Amazing.
