We had a fantastic time in the villa which is very spacious for large families. The games and cinema rooms keep the kids occupied and there are several lovely outdoor areas for the grown ups to relax in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back again.
Just a quick note to say thanks to SandyBlue and the owners for such an amazing holiday at Villa Augusta. The villa is stunning and the location was great. We were able to walk to one of the beaches with beachside restaurants and the rest were only a short Uber ride away - although we really didn’t want to leave the villa that often!
We had such a memorable stay in this superb villa. Villa Augusta is ideal for families of all ages. We found it spotless, so spacious and very well equipped. We especially loved the large modern kitchen and entertainment floor for movie nights and pool tournaments after a day by the pool or at the beach. Being able to access our Netflix and Apple TV accounts was an added bonus. The heated pool was great in October. We didn’t want to leave!
Had a fabulous time and loved the villa. There was so much to entertain us without leaving Villa Augusta. Great beaches and choice of restaurants nearby.
Villa Augusta is beautifully decorated and everything is modern and new. It was a perfect villa to relax in luxury. The outdoor speakers gave a great holiday vibe relaxing by the pool and the arcade machine in the games room was a fun feature! There were plenty of comfy sun loungers and several shaded areas with sofas to take a break from the Algarve sun. It was a short stroll to the beach and we enjoyed dinner and cocktails at the newly opened Parrilla Beach club. Great location.
