Client Reviews for Papoila

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!

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.
Bridge and Hamilton Family

Fantastic villa with everything you need. We have stayed with Vintage Travel on many occasions but this villa is easily the best. The owners were very helpful and the pool was beautifully warm.
The Price Family

We have rented many Vintage managed villas in Andalucia and always found them to be a high standard. Papoilla has been "the" highest standard villa! Excellent welcome pack added to the villa's warm welcome. Thank you to Daphne and Keith for their restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed drinks on the terrace of the Holiday Inn....great views, dinners at Arte Nautica and Vila Italia and exploring Silves.
The Furniss Family

We have had a fantastic week - thank you! The location of Villa Papoila is perfect - away from the hustle and bustle but within it and amazing beaches in just a few minutes drive. The villa itself is just fabulous - nothing more could've been provided, it was spot on. Coupled with that Daphne and Keith are brilliant hosts too - we've never been greeted by such a full welcome pack - thank you so very much! All in all we have enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and can't wait to return
The Field Family

After over twenty years of "villa holidays" (but the first with Vintage) Villa Papoila has proved to be "the ultimate." We have had a super two weeks of sun spent just relaxing at the villa and around Armação. Villa Papoila is outstanding in it's design, construction, furnishings, decor and superb pool. Daphne & Keith, you are wonderful hosts in every way with your warm welcome and information, very generous provisions and friendly help. A big thank you from all of us.
The Starkie Family

We came here to spend some sunny days in the Algarve. Unfortunately, we had no luck with the weather, but your lovely decorated home with all comfort does compensate for the rainy days. Our children loved to play with the Playstation and to swim in the pool. So the grandma and grandpa every morning did, too. Surprisingly the pool was warmer than the air, because Keith heated it for us. Many thanks! So we spent some pleasant days at your Vila Papoila and had a great time.
