Client Reviews for Papoila


We are a group of 5 family and friends who have tried many villas over the past 25+ years and this is one of the best - if not the best - villa we have stayed in. You can tell it is well loved, well laid out and everything is good quality. The "welcome" pack is the best we have ever had and greatly appreciated. The salt water pool is the best we've had and excellent idea with the cover. We have been lucky with the weather and there is always a shady spot to relax. Keith has provided a private haven with excellent landscaping and Daphne a welcoming host and obviously works hard to give her guests the best experience. This is our first booking with Vintage Travel. An extremely positive experience with both the office and local rep Charlie. In addition to the wealth of knowledge provided at the villa by Vintage and Daphne & Keith, the local free town maps are very useful. We have had a fabulous holiday.

Our party are all long term customers of Vintage. What you see in your brochure is what you get. Our second year at Papoila and Daphne and Keith were once again excellent hosts - their welcome pack is exceptional. Pool was spotless, though it was expensive to heat, but our choice to do so. Loved every second of our holiday there and will be looking to go back in the next two years.

After a 20 year gap, we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Algarve. The villa is fantastic and thank you to Daphne for all the thoughtful touches. The kids particularly enjoyed the beach and pool. Visited Zoomarine which was a great day out.
The Kemp Family


Three visits to this excellent villa in a space of four years is tribute to its comfort and facilities, and also to the warmth of the welcome to visitors provided by its owners Keith and Daphne. The welcome pack so generously provided is simply the best we have encountered anywhere, by far! We have greatly enjoyed good weather and a return to our old haunts! Hoping to be able to make a yet further visit at this time of year in the future. Many thanks.
The Devlin Family


Thank you for a fantastic holiday. We have loved staying in this beautiful villa and playing in the pool and gardens. All of your thoughtful details have been much appreciated, from the food in the fridge on arrival to the delivery of a midweek paper! It has been our first visit to Portugal and everyone has loved it. We've followed several of your recommendations and they have been very successful. We are looking forward to returning in the future!
The Polley Family


We have had an amazing visit to Villa Papoila. The villa itself has so many nice personal touches which makes it a very welcoming place. Daphne and Keith have been fantastic hosts and have been very helpful. We would recommend Slide and Splash for all ages (including adults!). It is a great waterpark with a variety of activities and slides. We enjoyed visiting Silves, a lovely town with historical buildings. A nice beach would be Redonda and we would highly recommend using the book that Daphne and Keith have provided as it is informative and useful. Altogether a fantastic trip here.
The Norbury Family


Thank you for a great week in this lovely villa. We have enjoyed the peace and tranquility and appreciated the pool. Thanks in particular for the food and drink which you provided for our arrival and which was very welcome. Given the time of year we were pleasantly surprised by the warm, sunny weather throughout the week. It has been so nice to be able to sit outside on the patio having breakfast - not something we can often do at home!

We are six friends (3 couples) who go on holiday together each year. Last year we rented a property through Vintage Travel in northern Portugal. We were so pleased with the property, the people and the weather that we decided to try south Portugal this year. We have not been disappointed! After waiting over an hour at Faro airport for our car hire we ended up arriving in the dark. The instructions to find the property were excellent and it was a relief to see lights on in the property. The scale of the welcome pack was hugely appreciated and we were most impressed with the range and standard of fixtures, fittings and equipment and the general cleanliness of the property. The grounds and gardens are superb. All this is testimony to the care of Papoila's hosts for their visitors. We spent much time by the pool but ventured out occasionally. Finally the weather has been unbeatable - between 25C & 30C everyday and no rain. In summary, a prefect place to stay, amongst really lovely people. Thank you Daphne and Keith.

We can only repeat what everyone else has said - a fantastic villa with Daphne and Keith being great hosts. The villa is immaculately clean with everything provided that you could possible need, a real home-from-home. The welcome pack was fantastic and Daphne's house book and maps with tips proved invaluable. The weather has been amazing and we have spent most of our two weeks relaxing by the pool. We are sad to be going home but already looking forward to a return visit. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Smith


A fantastic holiday, everything has been amazing. The villa, pool and pool cover giving peace of mind. The location, the sunshine and all the extras including a fantastic welcome pack after a long day. Can't wait to come back for longer next year.
