Space in the villa and the excellent service. The weather wasn’t great the first days, but we entertained us great. Still enjoyed 4 days in the pool. Our four grandchildren (the oldest and the youngest 6 years 22 months) loved it. Delicious lunch on the beach, a barbecue by the pool, very successful. Our host Antoine and his wife Areke are very nice people. Discreet and helpful. The transfer to and from the airport was perfectly arranged. A place to come back!
The Vivenda Fleau and Pleuntje was the perfect place for the whole family, including five grandchildren, to celebrate our 45-year wedding anniversary. The villa is amazing and atmospheric with plenty of space for everyone. The pool has not had a quiet hour. The children themselves are precious in entertained. The big kids have tried to get the surfing master. If everyone has fun than the Jubilees are obvious too. We have eaten a few times at the beach (O Farol recommended !!) and between courses the kids were on the beach to play. Host Antoine and his wife Areke do everything to make it for everyone happy! Nothing is too much them. The email contact with Nicole was very pleasant and every request was granted in a very correct way. There tailor comes! I close with the words of our 10-year-old granddaughter, “If my friends were here, and of course my guinea pig, I would always want to be here”
We enjoyed two weeks of luxury and tranquility in the Vivenda, the service was very good (enough presence without being noticed), the children can have fun in and out of the water, we had dinner and got sufficient and some additional vitamin D. We also very much like the country Portugal, we feel safe, reserved and friendly people, beautiful scenery, great for walking. We hope to meet another time again in the future.
This was for us (11 friends) the 4th time we stayed mid-week in Vivenda Fleau and Pleuntje and once again it was superb. The house is beautiful, very clean, a lot of space and tastefully decorated. The lovely pool, terrace and the good care of the host make it a very pleasant stay. Moreover, the location of the villa is very convenient, within walking distance of the beach, promenade, bars and restaurants. In short: an absolute must.
For the 3rd time we’ve been to this excellent villa. Great welcome by our hosts Antoine and his wife Areke. Everything was done to make us the best possible fun! We were invited by our children and grandchildren. This villa offers both privacy and group enjoyment. Meanwhile, we are with our children and grandchildren, attached to this piece of holiday enjoyment. That is why we decided to come back again next year. The anticipation has already begun for us now !!!
With a group of 14 girlfriends we had a great time in the Vivenda. Fantastic house, nice welcome by hosts, nice pool and great location. Nice eateries within walking distance.
Very nice luxury stylish villa just steps from the beach and promenade. Delicious enjoyed the beautiful villa, the beautiful pool and the superb service of the host. A unique villa with plenty of room for a large party. The villa has a unique rooftop terrace where you have a super view …. The price / quality is more than good to mention the very friendly service from the host, the very stylish decor, the accommodation is super cleaned, the transfers is in the price included, use of the bus for trips in the area (possibly with the host as a driver) and its location in the quiet part of Praia da Rocha make this villa a great property !!!
Again, so for the second time, we have enjoyed great with our children and grandchildren in the Vivenda. We knew this time what we could and could expect. That meant that the sentence in holiday and anticipation was well before departure. On arrival at the airport was the taxidriver ready and about forty minutes later we were welcomed by our host his wife. It immediately felt like coming home. More than ten days we enjoyed intensely with our twelve of the beautiful villa with swimming pool, the beautiful weather and the friendliness and helpfulness of the host. Super! It will definitely not stay at a recent holiday in the Vivenda, given the tremendous reactions of our children and grandchildren.
We were with 4 couples in a wonderful week in June 2014 in the Vivenda. We were previously naturally very curious if it’s as ” good ” as was we had hoped; and YES, fortunately this was! We have from the first to the last minute immensely enjoyed the lovely large house, pool, TOP-location with the view and the environment and not least the Dutch attentive host. Everything is a short walk away, the beautiful sandy beach, marina, promenade and pleasant shopping and the many terraces. So highly recommended!
We’ve enjoyed our stay very much. We had a great time! Super nice weather, nice terraces, the BBQ, a nice pool, our friendly host and his wife. The villa’s location is fantastic, close to the beach, within walking distance of Portimao and the center of Praia da Rocha very close. We also used a lot of mountain bikes. We can recommend it to everyone and will definitely come back!
Ooooooh, we had a wonderful time again!! Sun,sea, beach, the villa, the pool and the beautiful surroundings. And for the second year in a row it was just a splendid mini vacation AGAIN! Also our (new) host Eric was very friendly, polite, sociable and helpful. Thanks so much for the hospitality and until next year! Greetings from 11 satisfied girls 🙂
Now that we (unfortunately) are back home again, we look back on a very good, cozy and unforgettable week in the vivenda! Thumbs up for Eric, he has done his utmost to make our stay as pleasant as possible! Beautiful trips to the fish market in Portimão and Silves! Everything was really very nice and tasty: the generous tapas buffet on the day of arrival, the Delphine Safari, Slide & Splash, the tasty BBQ. The kids have had a great surfing day and also very pleasantly cycled around Praia da Rocha. And last but not LEAST: the vivenda: REALLY a great house, in which we spend lovely hours on the terrace and at the pool! We will definitely recommend the vivenda to everyone … but certainly to our own friends and acquaintances.
Super location to celebrate your holiday with a bunch of people. Beautiful and comfortable house, lovely pool with sun beds. This house really lives up to the information you see on the website. Beach at 50 meters, boulevard with in the evening nice stalls, outdoor cafes, shops. The reason we were here with 12 people was in honor of the 50th wedding anniversary of our parents. Eric, the host, and his wife Zélia also contributed in making this holiday special. Special thanks for the nice surprise we got on the last day: cake, wine and children’s champagne. Very thoughtful and thanks again for this on behalf of all of us. All this has made this vacation unforgettable both for my parents and the rest of the family. Eric, Zélia, many thanks and until next time!
We had a great time! Everything was perfect, the arrival, the tapas, the service, the villa. It was even more beautiful than we thought it would be. I can pass on to everyone, also on behalf of my girlfriends, that this was a trip to remember and definitely worth repeating (if the men allow it and are willing to take care of the children again). If it’s not next year then some other time in the future. In the meantime, we have mentioned the adress often already and I think/hope you will be welcoming more groups from Oudewater in the future. Also many thanks to Eric for the good care, he was always instantly available to us. Nicole and the rest of the team, thanks again for the pleasant mail contact! I now understand even more that you have won the price.
We had a great week in the vivenda. It is really a lovely place to stay with a beautiful swimming pool and great views on the beach and the sea which we, the children and grandchildren, enjoyed immensely. The ability to use the services of the nice and helpful host is an extra luxurous service. We will definitely recommend the vivenda to friends and acquaintances. The fast and correct final settlement regarding the repayment of the deposit is experienced by us as very positive. Finally, the contacts with the owner were always, without exception, very friendly, clear, correct and very enthusiastic.
After arriving back home we are still reminiscing a week in the beautiful house and the splendid service of the host. Really everything was as it was agreed. Totally top. Really a must! Definitely worth repeating.
We had, partly because of the good reviews on Zoover, booked this vivenda! Fortunately everything was REALLY as mentioned: in 1 word: TOP! We really do not need to spend more words. Beautiful, huge and complete house, lovely swimming pool! Even for the smallest of our family was taken care of: big box with toys and a playpen to put beside the pool … and yes … of course …. our host … also TOP.
We really had a SUPER HOLIDAY in the Vivenda. And what loving people are the host and hostess. All the boxes were ticked. Inside the house it remained cool everywhere despite the heat outside. The only pity was the hard music in this period of the year (= the month of August) on the beach in the evening/night! Fortunately, earplugs provided a solution!! The villa and the people around it are very definitely worth repeating. Also the frequent mail contact with the owner regarding several questions went always particularly smoothly and very, very clear. In short: this vivenda is really a must!
we have a long weekend in this fantastic villa with 9 girlfriends may linger. A place for relaxation and tranquillity. The pool is nice, it’s clean and spacious from inside and outside, within walking distance of the beach and the restaurants and a very friendly host Rui. Also the owners is very hospitable (what you promise, you also get). One of the treatments at the beauty-salon Ilona and her daughter is definitely a recommendable. It was therefore a great pleasure for us to stay in Villa Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje come back again and therefore certain
We are with 4 couples of 50 +, which the gentlemen golfers and the ladies adore the sun. Combination was really unique (the ladies, we have enjoyed the delicious beauty treatments in the beauty salon of Ilona directly below the villa and have at the pool of the villa and on the great sandy beach located 2 minute walk! The gentlemen by the Rui (our super attentive host) daily to the different golf courses in the surroundings. In the afternoon often a delicious fish and meat BBQ fully moderated by Rui. Also a day out with all to Lagos, where Rui was our guide, was very successful! Precisely this combination of personal approach and gave us a memorable and carefree holiday luxury delivered! Not forgotten: in the villa itself was a warm and welcoming personal atmosphere (although we of course seen the great weather not much inside have been sitting!) Really great class!
we have 10 days with children and grandchildren (10 people) stayed in this villa and it was in a word amazing. Beautiful place, fantastic House for larger group and the service of Rui (caretaker) was amazing. There is not cut back on inventory and everything was largely present and House was also clean. Worried in advance or the plate on internet not too rosy, but these concerns proved unfounded. was You get what you are promised. We will definitely come back to this place
We were here with family and grandparents. Particularly friendly janitor who plays everything wants to help. The House is perfect for us all 8, borrowed from young to old. Decorated with taste, the several terraces, large bedrooms with bathrooms made it to a place to definitely to go again. Within 1 minute on the beach made it for us all a wonderful two weeks. …
A wonderful week had a family holiday in the cozy Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje. Very hospitable host / hostess who always stood ready for us. The good thing about this house is that you have everything in the neighbourhood. Beach, sea, swimming pool, restaurants, nice shops and cozy bars. Really a top spot!! We will definitely come back someday.
Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje really is a beautiful villa, situated in a stunning location. The reality is as beautiful and spacious as the pictures already indicate on the website. We stayed there in April for a week. Important for us was that our small children could not just walk into the pool from the terrace; this because a gate was placed. The box for outside by the pool, ” walker ” and the many toys on the beach for the kids was really great! The host Antoine did very best to make everything to our liking, really nothing was too much for him. We have, despite the intention on the first day ‘at home’ not a BBQ because we were always nice restaurants nearby that we wanted to try. (Toppers: Casa da Rocha, Senhora da Rocha, and O Farol) The port tasting in Silves we found very nice and pleasant to do. Our ladies have also been an afternoon in the mountains on horseback, they found it very special, this was in an equestrian center near Monchique is a Dutch owner that runs a riding stable. And when it rained we went to the shopping center Aqua Portimão. We found it a really nice holiday and consider going again in late September or early October back because we do not like the crowds in the summer months.
We had a great week. Fantastic location of the villa and everything was arranged to perfection and looked after. With the cooperation of Antoine and Areke we eat a delicious cake for our 40th wedding anniversary. We, our children and grandchildren would like to stay here again in the future.
We and our family spent a week in your wonderful villa. Everything was PERFECT! More than enough space. The host Antoine and his wife Areke were always there for us when we need them and they had good ideas for excursions and restaurants and special ‘things to know’ about the area. Great that a car was available with Antoine as driver to take us where we wanted to go and help us with the groceries. In short, because of the very good and friendly care was our vacation TOP.
For the second time eight girls visited the villa and again had a wonderful holiday. Enjoyed the good service from the hosts, spacious and clean villa, beautiful surroundings, great food within walking distance to the promenade and the great weather. Highly recommended !!
The welcome was heart warming. Antoine and Areke deserve kudos regarding involvement and care. Nothing was too much them. We had a fantastic week at the Vivenda. What was great was that everything is really like on the website. However, all beautiful and so it is exactly, nothing photo shopped. The pool! A superbad! We used it a lot. The need to go somewhere else we never had. We enjoyed just “home”. Leaves us nothing more than a big compliment to provide for this unforgettable week.
For the third time we have visited the villa and to the complete satisfaction. The location is perfect at the end of promenade, overlooking the sea. Walking distance to the beach and shops / restaurants. The villa is modern and well equipped. This time we were with 12 people and given the area this is a perfect house. Clean, nice bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms with plenty of closet space. Nice pool and plenty of outdoor seating! Overall highly recommended.
For the 2nd time may enjoy a wonderful stay at the Vivenda, and this time we enjoyed the great house, beautiful location, great pool and service from the host and hostess! Really recommended!
Again briefly home after a lovely midweek with friends in Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje in Praia da Rocha. Previously, we used to go to Spain, but Portugal has given us certainly not disappointed! The location of the house is TOP, as the finishes and furnishings. Also it is very clean, both inside and out. Cozy bedrooms but also important for a couple of bad ‘backs’ among us, good mattresses. It was above all a cozy place where you feel welcome from the first moment! Our host went above and beyond for us to make it to our liking … he was there if you needed him, but even if we just wanted to be friendly with each other. The beautiful beach is really a doorstep away! We have been an evening at a Fado evening, very traditional, but very fun to be with. All in all, it was just enjoying spic and span. In our holiday as it should be and the positive reviews we can therefore only confirm! Traditional Fado evening at one of the restaurants or bars in Portimão center, you have book this in advance.
We have very much enjoyed our week in the vivenda. Our oldest grandchild called us yesterday morning: ”grandma, grandpa”, I would like to go back to Portugal! It’s so cold here”.The weather was obviously great and it also plays a major role. The Vivenda met all our expectations. In the morning the grandchildren in the TV room and stepped outside to the pool after breakfast. All four are water lovers. Great nice clean beach within walking distance. We have also almost the whole week living outdoors. The host gave us exquisite operated car rides, shopping and also the youngest had to go to the doctor because of a gash in his head that required stitches. Then it is ideal to have an interpreter at the hand. At work, with friends we tell our positive experiences. So we say the word. We are really very spoiled! Apart from the busy shopping are also at the Marina are several tasty, affordable seafood restaurants.
Paper is patient. A beautiful text on internet, pictures …. it all seemed too good to be true before arrival. However, it was more than true. The villa with everything in it surpassed all our expectations. A clean villa (thumbs up for the cleaning crew) comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful living spaces, games for both inside the villa and outside …… books … magazines. … This was beyond our dreams. Obviously, all 12 of us enjoyed it very much. On top of that a golden beach almost on your doorstep. Super. And then last but not least: what an enjoyable host Eric! Present at the right moments, cooperative, helpful, generous. That also contributed to a great stay in the villa. Many thanks to him and, of course, to his wife who, in the background, provided us with clean towels and so on. We surely hope to come back again!
Dear Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje – team, thank you so much for the really nice time! We all enjoyed the house, the pool, the large terrace and the wonderful views. Everything is close by. It’s wonderful to walk along the vast beaches in the sunshine. If you wanted to be more active, you could take one of the mountain bikes (which were available at the vivenda). Also the sardines museum in Portimão centre at the marina was very nice and educational to visit. The children (4-14 years) enjoyed everything, but that they also occasionally could watch Dutch TV was super. Eric and his wife have spoiled us with all kind of nice things such as the taxi service, but also with a delicious BBQ. It could not have been any better. A perfect holiday. Thanks a lot for everything!!
Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje is a super location, indeed located 50 metres from the beach. The view is fantastic: in the morning having breakfast outside with views on the beach and the sea! The location of this property is exactly as described on the website. The host Eric (and his wife Zélia) is (are) very helpful and at your service 24 hours a day. Nothing is too much for them. We even had the pleasure to meet Nicole, the owner of the vivenda. Maybe until next time in this beautiful vivenda!
We greatly enjoyed the amazing house. It was huge, clean and the location was great. The service was excellent and the host was very helpful. The free breakfast offered by you due to the inconvenience of the very late arrival of our flight is very much appreciated by all of us! We have never been in Portugal, but fully intend to come back again. Maybe in this house again or otherwise in one of you Riomar apartments, directly behind the villa!
We really couldn’t have found a better location for our 2-annual family holiday! What a warm hospitality and super service. In addition, it is really a PRIME location. Close to everything! As the villa is ”huge ” you will not get in each other’s way and also outside there is plenty of space to relax. Outside warm and inside cool, despite the fact that there is no air conditioning. The swimming pool was clean and maintained on a daily basis. The many full-service BBQ’s (taken care of by our host) were absolutely superb! We are wonderfully spoiled and were really able to relax. Too bad there was no WIFI reception outside by the pool ….. but inside there was always a good reception. We are very definitely coming back.
This was our 4th time that we were on holiday in the Algarve and it was really beyond expectations! The accommodation is all five stars worthy. The outstanding service of the host and hostess has also contributed. One has really given us a very nice and relaxing holiday. Picked up from the airport by the nice driver, welcomed by the host on arrival at the villa with delicious snacks and drinks. Our previously specified groceries were already in the refrigerator, really super de luxe! The spacious villa is equipped with all luxury and comfort: fantastic views, a nice, clean swimming pool with plenty of sun beds and large towels for everyone. Everywhere, both inside and outside plenty of space. Also the mountain bikes are extensively used. The villa is ideally located within a 2-minute walk from the beach and a short walk from the pleasant shopping street with many restaurants and terraces etc. For both young and old a must!
The villa was great and really super located! Our host was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for him. The villa was very clean and adequately furnished and we had all the facilities we need. We would definitely recommend it to friend and family and perhaps even come and stay at the villa or one of your apartments. Once again, Nicole thank you for making our stay so pleasant. Kind regards, John and the rest of the party.
long weekend in the villa stayed with 9 girlfriends. Everything is right here! Delicious House, everything new and clean. Location is fantastic and if you get a gift Topper ‘ butler ‘. This is still long reminiscing!
We are with whole family (children and grandchildren) 9 days completely pampered. What a service! Location is really more than top. Rui is a very good and likeable host; nothing is too much for him! ” You almost on the great falls ” Praia da Rocha Beach; so close is this. All children (great & small) have enjoyed; swim, play, kiting, mountain biking etc. The ladies have huge let ” spoil in the beauty-salon Ilona and Alexandra (wife and daughter-in-law of our host Rui) directly below the villa. And even a relaxing sports massage by the pool was possible. The fish-and meat barbeque a few evenings per week, fully groomed, gave us all really the ultimate holiday feeling. Also a sometime golfing orphans. Really everything was too taken with a ” smile ”. SUPER.
with the whole family (6 adults & 3 kids) a week in the villa holiday celebrated. It was unforgettable. the villa is large, clean, well decorated with a nice swimming pool and a great caretaker! Beach/boulevard/shops/restaurants. highly recommended for a family celebration
We have had a super nice week with our family. Because the location is so good, we had no need to go further away. The golfers in our family have enjoyed and also we have another beautiful hike through nature/rocks created. Also the cycling, super! The barbeque moderated by Rui (our host in the villa) was a highlight. Everything is to your liking expired.
Vivenda Fleau e Pleuntje is really topper. Especially the location is delicious, close to beach, near Centre but still very quiet. We have had a super holiday. The decoration is superdeluxe!
