"Beautiful memories in Beautiful Portugal in a Beautiful Villa!
Our family joined us in celebrating a wonderful 40th in Portugal at this very impressive property. We were very impressed with the beautifully appointed Mediterranean style home and gardens.
We really enjoyed all the features of this villa. The pool and hot tubs were a wonderful way to relax and unwind after a great day of sightseeing and the grandkids wore off that last little bit of energy before bedtime in their very cozy beds.
The movie room was a real hit for the kids as well as the adults and was a really nice surprise that we did not anticipate. We hope to return on another occasion as we feel this area offers so much more! We fell in love with Portugal, the Algarves and this property!"
"When we started looking for a simple little slice of luxury for a weeklong break for 10 friends, little did we know we would find the most beautiful and idyllic, self-contained home for ourselves amongst the vistas of the Algarve.
No matter how many photos you see, they really cannot begin to do this spectacular villa justice. From the moment we arrived, the scale of this palatial home away from home was mesmerising; with views of the beautifully manicured gardens and tennis court set between the rolling tree-covered hills and the sea.
The villa gave us everything you could wish for to account for our different tastes; some sunbathed and lounged by the perfectly heated pool, others took to the shade covered upper terrace to read (a favourite spot for us in the evening to regroup and enjoy long dinners chatting over a few drinks), while others relaxed in the games room playing pool, played tennis on the courts, or took a few hours out to watch one of the latest blockbusters in the incredible home cinema (though the seats are so comfortable – you should expect to fall asleep).
No description can express how well and tastefully decorated this villa is; it had all the comforts that make it feel like home from the second we arrived; even down to fully stocked bookshelves in several rooms, and exquisitely comfortable beds, linens and towels in each of the individually decorated bedrooms.
The villa manager was kindly available to us by phone when we needed advice for the best local spots for dinner, to arrange a (fantastic) mobile masseuse, and even when we were so relaxed we forgot how to work the extremely simple interface to the cinema! No issue was too small, and the local knowledge for us was extremely valuable.
All in all, this was by far one of the most relaxing breaks we have ever taken; and that is largely down to the amenities offered by the villa, its stunning location, and the care and attention to detail the owners have gone to make sure that you have everything at your disposal, and that is what really made this villa feel like home. We fell in love, and will certainly be heading back." - Greg T., UK
"The apartment was excellent. It was exactly as described on the website.
Cathy who met us at the apartment was very helpful to us.She was very efficient and a credit to the company.
We have already booked the same apartment for next year." - Sean F., UK
"We stayed in Villa Sao Clemente in July 2019 to celebrate our wedding. We invited close family members for a week to stay with us in this beautiful place. We were all speechless when we arrived. It was truly magical. There was room for enough people and everyone had their own space, if they wanted to. But we enjoyed being together outside, having meals on the terrace and spend the time by the pool or playing tennis. The kids loved the area downstairs (mostly the cinema which is truly special) and the pool of course. The wedding was a dream. We were a group of 45 people and after the ceremony, we spent the day and the reception at the villa's garden. The garden was split into many different sections (pool area welcome drinks and late night snacks, a dance floor under the tree with a DJ, a whole big dining area with a catering area down the garden on the grass). It could have not been more perfect. The memories will stay forever and we could have not chose a better place! The support from the team was more than we have ever expected. They were so helpful and had this special touch, which makes your heart warm. Thank you for letting us stay in your villa and spend the most beautiful day in your house and garden. We will all never forget and look back to it with great memories forever." - Janina and Paulo Dos Santos Pereira
"We booked this Villa for two families to share in July 2019 and it didn’t disappoint - we absolutely loved it. The Villa and surrounding area was spotlessly clean and had plenty space for us all to have a great time but not feel like we were living in each other’s pockets. It had a large kitchen, lounge and dining area and all the bedrooms were modern and spacious. The outside area allowed us to sit in the patio but still see our kids playing in the pool. It’s in a great location allowing you to enjoy the lively experience of the Marina (5 minutes away in an Uber) then escape to a place that is more peaceful with well maintained gardens and pool area. If you have someone who is into golf they will be in heaven as the Villa is right next to the golf house and golf course. We visited the golf house a number of times for lunch and the food was lovely with helpful, friendly staff serving. Would highly recommend this Villa for both families and also for friends just looking to escape. 5 Stars." - Anne Marie V., UK
"From the moment we walked into the villa back in early February we knew it would be absolutely perfect for our dream wedding. To top off walking into the most beautiful villa, we were greeted with such a warm welcome from Caroline from Ideal Homes. The villa had everything we could possibly need, the layout was perfect, each room was decorated to such a high standard and every bedroom had an en-suite. When we walked outside onto the terrace looking over the beautiful view and the amazing grounds and pool, there was definitely no going back and this was 100% going to be ‘the one’ for us.
We honestly couldn’t have organised and pulled off the most perfect wedding without the support and knowledge of everyone at Ideal Homes, so to summarise, we would not hesitate to recommend Ideal Homes, and Villa Sao Clemente. We will be forever eternally grateful to you all." - Rebecca E., UK
