  • Toby Watson

    We spent two weeks in this amazing villa. It looked fantastic on the website, but was even better in reality. Every detail has been thought of in this villa. From a kitchen supplied with everything you would need and very high quality appliances, to fantastic seating area outside (where we spent many a long lunch time!), a brilliant BBQ and of course fantastic pool.

    Alvor is very pretty with a great number of excellent restaurants. There are also many beautiful beaches, which are all about a 10 minute easy drive from the villa.

    But to top all of this we were made to feel so very welcome by the Premier Villas team.

    This was the most relaxing holiday we have had and would highly recommend staying here.

  • Sue Carter

    I cannot fault the villa in any way shape or form, an enjoyable and plesent stay just outside Portimao town.

  • Mariella

    This villa is nothing short of magnificent - the décor, the space, the excellently equipped rooms! It is also reassuringly secure. It was a perfect, luxurious and spacious setting for our wedding and the days before and after. It was extremely conducive to a wonderful, communal and entertaining holiday. It is by far the best villa we’ve had the pleasure of staying in, and we look forward to returning one day.

    Furthermore, it has been simple to communicate with the Premier Villas team over the past 7 months and that has made it a much less stressful experience.

    Thank you to all for making our experience so special.

  • Noelle

    I just wanted to say thank you and to all the staff at Casa Refugio for everything on our recent stay. It was outstanding.
