Client Reviews for Papoila

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.
Mr & Mrs Holliday

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.
The Barker Family

We've had a wonderful holiday at Villa Papoila - our first visit to Portugal. Our hosts Daphne and Keith were discreet but attentive. We arrived after a late flight to the most fabulous , comprehensive welcome package we have ever encountered. The villa itself is wonderfully equipped and scrupulously cleaned to the highest standard.The weather has been glorious so the pool has been in constant use. However the water quality has been diligently managed by Keith. Take heed to all of Daphne's recommendations in the welcome pack. We have been impressed with the Vintage Travel Service and would certainly consider using them again. A special thank you to Charlie who was extremely helpful when we inadvertently locked ourselves out! Thank you for a marvellous holiday.
The Stanway Family

Perfect villa for a family holiday! Personal touches and attention to detail ensured both adults and children well catered for with well equipped kitchen including cool box for picnics, fabulous welcome pack and barista style coffee machine. The pool cover gave peace of mind with children around and the water was so soft and refreshing- no stinging eyes due to the saltwater. The children loved the table tennis and pool toys. Plenty of different spaces for meals/drinks/sunbathing/shade. Daphne and Keith's guide to local restaurants and beaches/attractions very useful. All in all could not fault our stay: many thanks!
Wilsmore Family

We have really enjoyed staying in your beautiful villa. Thank you so much for your hospitality. The food and treats on arrival were much appreciated after a long journey and made us feel very much at home. Our children have been so comfortable here with the beautiful pool and gardens. The extra equipment for the children certainly made life much easier. We have loved the peaceful, secluded location, yet have found it so easy to get to so many great places. Your local knowledge and recommendations were really helpful as was all of the information provided in the house. We hope to visit again sometime.
