I cannot speak highly enough of everything! The house itself was absolutely fantastic - it had everything you could possibly want and each and every one of us were delighted with it, from the games room, cinema, pool and even the gifts left by SandyBlue. The service was also faultless. I would have no hesitation in recommending both SandyBlue and Villa Augusta to anyone.
Full praise to all the team at Sandyblue that helped and allowed us to take our holiday which was originally planned for May 2020 - to celebrate my 50th birthday! After covid lockdown and government crazy rules, third time lucky we managed to book and thank you Sandyblue for keeping our holiday dream alive! Even the last minute villa change did not ruin a fabulous holiday. So 10 out of 10 to you all and I have been singing your praises to everyone. Our flight landed at 11am and thank you for allowing us to leave our baggage at your agency and organising with Pleasant Tours to bring our baggage to us and taking us to the villa for 5pm check-in. Villa Augusta was a fabulous and more than catered for our needs (there were 8 ladies on this trip). It really is a smart, luxury space to spend a holiday. The outside area (around the pool) was sufficient for our needs. Plenty of sofa space to sit and relax during the day and in the evenings. Spending all day on the loungers and a few evenings eating outside. We are sun worshippers so all used the outside/lounger space. You could not ask for more space inside the villa a real luxury. The kitchen equipped perfectly, with plenty of crockery/utensils etc. No complaints regarding the bedrooms and bathrooms - beds very comfortable, loads of storage space. Clean, smart, decor lovely. The girls who stayed in the basement said that the room and area was much better than expected. The games/cinema room is amazing and we managed to make some use of them as we had a couple of cloudy days! Even a movie was watched!! The area is lovely. The taxi service was amazing and picked us up to take us shopping and were literally our personal chauffer taking us to dinner in the evenings and to the beach! I have not experienced such efficient taxi service before (having spent 20 years holidaying in the Algarve) I really cannot speak highly enough of Sandyblue and Villa Augusta and I am so grateful that we had this holiday so thank you all so much. I will definitely be looking at Sandyblue again for my future holidays to the Algarve. As I mentioned I have been visiting the Algarve for the last 20 years and will continue as long as I can. We were discussing a golfing week at some point and Villa Augusta would be the perfect accommodation.
A huge thanks to SandyBlue for three fabulous weeks in this modern villa. Our biggest challenge each day was whether to walk to padel tennis at The Campus, play golf or just lounge by the pool!
We loved every minute of our stay at Villa Augusta. The villa was very modern and well equip with everything we could think of. All of the bedrooms and beds were very spacious and comfortable. The swimming pool was perfect, highly recommended the villa and Sandy Blue.
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.
